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

The restaurant offered a varied menue with considerable choice.We found that the presentation was imaginative and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinners on both nights.The wine list offered a... 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

This hotel was just OK. I was not impressed by the security. All the room keys hung at reception where anyone could just lift one and go up to any room! The lady at reception was quite stern. She insisted that I pay up front. The room was just OK, a bit drab and run down looking - no shower... More

We stayed at La boule d’or in Chinon May 2007 for one night for around 55-65 euro. The hotel is a Logis de France. Our experience was very different from the other reviewer’s – the hotel must have been fixed up since. Our room was very clean and newly renovated to a relatively high standard for a two star. Although... More
