Nice location overlooking the market square, where parking is free. Chinon is a small town and all amenities and points of interest are within a short walk of the hotel. It's an old building with no lift, so be prepared to lug your case up three flights of winding stairs if, like us, you are in room 249 in the... More

My family stayed for one night. The room was fairly basic but fine considering the price. We ate at the hotel in the evening too and that was rather less satisfactory: the food was fine but not that cheap, and they did not provide children's portions (making the evening expensive). However, we mentioned this to them and they took the... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Le Plantagent on a bike trip through the Loire Valley. The hotel is cute and the room was a good deal for the price. The building itself is older, which is fine but if you have a chance ask for a room on the top floor as we we're kept awake all night... More

We stayed three nights at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is old but is in the best location in Chinon right opposite Place Joan D'Arc (market square) where you can park for free. There is a very large weekly market every Thursday. The hotel does need a bit of updating but our room was fine, a bit... More

Look no further than the delightful Hotel Le Plantagenet if looking for a stay in the Loire valley. Chinon is a characterful town and the hotel is just on the square dominated by the imposing statue of Jeanne d'Arc. We were warmly welcomed, the hotel rooms had air-conditioning and newly refurbished bathrooms and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast the following... More

We stayed one night here. It was fair for what we paid, I suppose, but felt more like two star than three. The room (which looks nothing like web photos) was clean, though didn't smell or feel it. Everywhere smells a bit fusty. A bit like 1980s b&bs in Blackpool! However, it was comfortable enough once we worked out how... More

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
