This is possibly one of the worst hotels I’ve ever stayed in! It has the dubious honor of dirty rooms, smoke-filled textiles (... they’ve never been cleaned since the anti-smoking ban in public places in France) and a hotel owner who clearly thinks that the guests are there for entertainment. On the positive side, Hotel Plantagenet has a very good... More

Well located in the old town, opposite the market square and close to restaurants. The hotel is like a flash back 30 years. There is a shared coffee and kettle at the end of the corridor, there is no lift, and circular stairs with carpet and stair rods. The bathroom had a beige coloured bathroom suites with some bits white.... More

My favourite thing about this hotel was the wonderful breakfast. There was a large selection of items, including crepes. There is a large enclosed yard behind the hotel. This appeared to be quite useful for biking tours. The hotel itself appeared outdated. Our room was clean, but could use some renovations. We were located on the third floor. There is... More

The Plantegenet is located close to the river on the edge of the old part of the city within easy walking distance of the sights (except the castle). We have stayed at the hotel maybe 10 times as well as two others in the area. The ownership changed about three years ago after our last visit and many improvements have... More

Estivemos no hotel em janeiro de 2014 e fomos atendidos maravilhosamente bem, as acomodações são excelentes o café da manhã com produtos da região estava delicioso e nos levou direto para o clima de uma pequena cidade francesa. Preço bastante competitivo se comparado a outros hotéis do interior francês Altamente recomendado. Saudações do Brasil. We have been guests in this... More

We are traveling thru the Loire valley and came upon chinon. This little hotel is a gem. The owner is wonderful and very helpful. Compared to paris the size of the room is huge and the showers are hot. There is a lovely courtyard with the breakfast area. I would stay again.

We had a family reunion in Chinon. Sister lives in France, us en route to Sarlat, then Forcalquier for Easter. My sister found this great place, on its way up to multi-star standards. Huge room, great bathroom, very comfy bed. Very convenient for the centre - and especially the market, which is right outside in a leafy square! Aperitifs in... More

My husband and I stayed for one night in September. We had an attic-type room in the extra building (not the main one), and it was dark (and poor lighting) and musty. My husband had a horrible problem with asthma so we didn't get much sleep. Both the room and the bathroom were very dated. It was OK, but I... More
