What a wonderful little hotel! Quaint, charming, comfortable, great location, excellent hosts...what more could you want? My sister, 15-year-old niece, and I spent two nights at Hotel Diderot in late March and wish we could have stayed longer. Atmosphere and comfort are equally important to me, and Hotel Diderot did not disappoint in either. Our recently refurbished rooms were charming,... More

This beautiful little hotel surpassed my already high expectations. We travelled with our 13 year old daughter who stayed in the room next to ours per our request. Both our rooms were decorated tastefully and both had newly renovated bathrooms which was a real treat. The public areas of the hotel were also a delight with exposed beams and a... More

We stayed in this Hotel for one night and were disappointed we could only spend one night there. Laurent, Françoise and Martine were the most gracious hosts. The hotel was clean, comfortable and charming. The beautiful garden was immaculate. We were made feel very welcome and the breakfast by the roaring fire was magnificient. The homemade jams and artisinal breads... More

I have stayed in Hotel Diderot in September, 2013 with my husband and we had an amazing time at the hotel. The hotel is spotless clean and the rooms are great.

We stayed only one night, but wished we could have stayed longer. That really should be all you have to say about a hotel. Our room was beautifully decorated with antique furniture yet the in suite bathroom was modern. The room had windows looking out onto the parking lot/garden area and facing into town. Free wifi was apprecicated. We took... More

The Hotel Diderot is charming; beautifully decorated with comfortable beds, plenty of light and a spacious bathroom, all very well maintained. As others have noted, the owners and staff are welcoming and extremely helpful. I would say that it is amongst my top five favorite hotels. Breakfast is delicious. Good restaurants are within walking distance.

We stayed here with friends in October. Both of our rooms were gorgeous - just what you'd want in a French country hotel. Our friends were downstairs and they had French doors leading out to a garden area with a table and chairs - quite private. We were upstairs and our room overlooked the beautiful grade area. Our bathroom was... More

My memories of time recently spent at the Hotel Diderot are those of a warm embrace from an old friend. Beginning each day sitting by the fireplace enjoying freshly made bread and jams. And the lively conversation with our hosts who provided excellent advice of historic locations and restaurants open off season. The lovely accommodations which warmly welcomed me upon... More

I thought it would be difficult to live up to the many great reviews we read before arriving for our two day stay. If anything, they might be understated. My wife and I and our adult daughter took a short 2 day trip from Paris to visit the Loire valley for the first time. We stayed in room 5, a... More
