What a wonderful surprise after spending a day on the bike. The room was clean, well-appointed and best of all, air conditioned. The bathroom was modern and had a full shower, which is added bonus especially for my 6' 2' son. However there was a slight gap between the bottom of the shower door and the floor. We were lucky...

The hotel was really well situated and there were lots of good restaurants nearby. The room was clean and well equipped but small and the bathroom was very compact, it would not suit a big person! There is no car park but there is one a few yards away so it was not a problem. We were on the second... More

We are delighted to have stayed at this hotel, the staff were very friendly, the room was clean and it is right in the heart of the town, everything we wanted. The hotel terrace is finished and is very nice, the other works not quite completed, but all been done behind closed doors and did not affect our visit at... More

Having stayed in Chinon before, we wanted a hotel in the centre of the old town, and this was it! Our room overlooked the square with all the (busy) restaurants and bars, but was not noisy at all. The hotel is a quaint old building, sympathetically renovated, and looked freshly decorated throughout. The staff are very friendly and helpful. So... More

Great hotel right in the heart of the town square, with bars and eating places all around, the area becomes all pedestrian in the evening and on Sunday there is a great food market - this is a brilliant location for a hotel. The rooms were large and the bathroom was good, the shower was 'state of the art' (a... More

Friendly, clean and in a very central location. Right by the fortress lift and surrounded by bars and bistro's it is an ideal place to explore Chinon from. Had a very pleasent stay for a couple of nights.

Clean rooms, updated baths, good breakfast, helpful staff. Great location in the town square, just below the chateau. Parking is behind hotel, free from 1900 until next morning. Rooms were modern and recently updated which was in contrast to the "classic" appearance of the hotel and lobby.

We spent four nights there last week. Very helpful, staff, nice room, and terrific location. I would have given it a 5th star except for a very annoying buzz in the air-conditioning system that went uncorrected. Parking is not included, but is available free - overnight anyway - right next door.

Well-placed in the centre of town, a few steps to shops and restaurants, a small hotel, rather sweet. We found it expensive considering it was January and the place was empty, but I expect it is well worth it in summer. Friendly and cheerful service.

This hotel was the closest to the historical sites and the castle of any place I have ever stayed. Staff was very pleasant and they even had sort of a terrace where I could sneak a smoke, glory be! Hotel is in very old, historical building and you will have to do the stairs, which are also very old and... More
