In a town full of history that lies below the great Chinon Chateau, with its links to Eleanor of Acquitaine, Joan of Arc and the Templers, is the very welcoming Hotel de la Boule d'Or under the warm and hospitable management of Madame and Monsieur Delaveau. Its four modernised room are spacious with excellent bathrooms. Very importantly, the hotel's restaurant... More

We stayed one night on a day when there was a huge fete in the town. We were given help with parking and directions which made our arrival very simple. Comfortable rooks, very friendly welcome a good food. Only one caveat, the service was quite rushed and we had to be quite fierce in slowing our waitress down! Perfect for... More

We stayed half board for 4 nights in September and we thought it was stunning value. The food was great, excellent central location and comfortable rooms. The hosts Annie and Jean-Claude are very welcoming and gave us lots of information about local sights. This was our first visit to Chinon which is a delightful town with much to see, especially...

A perfect overnight stop here in November, en route from SW France to Calais, being bang in the middle. 5 hours direct to Calais from Chinon. The hotel was very clean and our room was spacious, clean and well decorated and presented with a large bathroom, shower only though but all modern and working well. There was also free wifi...

We were more than pleased with this hotel. Having lived near Chinon in the past, we have eaten at A'table (their restaurant) before so knew what to expect. It was just as we remembered......good food, and at a fair price. Plenty of choice to suit all tastes. The wine selection is very good and we would personally recommend the Spelty... More

We stayed here for two nights in August. The room was comfortable and reasonable value for the money. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The hotel has only a few bedrooms and must make most of its money from its restaurant, "A'table"", which is excellent. We had a terrific meal there. The hotel is located just off the centre of Chinon... More

This is a little gem of a place. I had the feeling there used to be more rooms but now there are just 4. They are extremely clean, the bathrooms particularly - which is what you want. Basically but perfectly adequately furnished. From the picture I thought it was by the river and was hoping for a river view but... More

This restaurant situated in the beautiful town of Chinon is good, its not cheap but for some reason my main course of a casserole of pork was very very salty. For myself I like well seasoned food but this was on the point of being over the top. I certainly didnt complain but I know of some who might but... More

This hotel offered real value for money in terms of both accommodation and food. The bedrooms were spacious and spotlessly clean, and the en-suite bathrooms were of a similarly high standard. The service was friendly, personal and accommodating without being in any way over obtrusive or pushy. The restaurant offers a wide variety of local specialties, and the plate of... More
