We stopped here for lunch. It was very good with attentive service and well presented and cooked food. Most of our party of eight had the €11.50 standard menu with the plat du jour which was excellent. Decor clean and tidy, fairly traditional French but that's the establishment style. Good value. No regrets about choosing it. It was full of... More

Stayed for one night in a second floor family room (2 adults and 2 children). The room was spacious, clean and looked nice. But, it is located in the second floor with no elevator so we had to carry the luggage up which was not nice (specifically asked for a low floor in the reservation which the hotel disregarded completely)....

We had one nights stay here on our way back from the south. The place was adequate and ok for an overnight stop, with free parking opposite in a public car park. The room was large although accessed from stone steps at the back of the hotel which were problematic when wet and steep up to the second floor with... More

Its OK. One possibly two nights but despite the hotel being very quiet I was put in a back room overlooking a back yard,storage place. For some reason the stairs (stone) were soaking wet and slippery as was the handrail, ok it was damp outside but surely not inside? I wouldnt go back to this hotel although at breakfast there...

Taken over recently by a young couple, this is not a tourist restaurant, and the decor is fairly low-key traditional French hotel. However, if you want a well-cooked, generously portioned interesting meal, with rapid but not pushy service, this is the place to go in Chinon. The menu of the day is always particularly good value, and doesn't rely on... More

Quality is low of the products used. Starters are large meals to obviously compensate for the bad quality. Service was poor as there was only 1 waiter. Glasses on the tables were dirty, no outside view etc. Overall very bad!

Stayed as family of 3, for just one night, unplanned. The room was fine, although the double bed was 2 singles pushed together. We didn't have any of the problems others have mentioned with bad beds and linen - it was all quite acceptable. Likewise, despite having a room overlooking the square/car park, it was quiet enough for a good... More

The room was fine, but the food was easily the worst I've ever had. The staff refused to reduce the bill and our party left in high dudgeon. I personally find the idea of chicken(overcooked) with shrimp sauce from a bottle repellent, and unlikely to be called "chicken americain".

By the time we arrived to Le Lion d'Or, we had seen plenty of hotels - Premier Classe included. I really enjoyed the apartment-style rooms they had. Two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a nice bathroom were all included. The town of Chinon is gorgeous. The river near it is also gorgeous. I would definitely stay there again... More

We booked this hotel for one night. We stressed that we would need wireless internet, because we had a very time sensitive internet business operation that had to occur in the middle of the night. When we arrived to a rather smelly room, we discovered that the internet connection would not work. There was WIFI, but it would not connect... More
