Great hotel, we travel with 5 yrs old child and discovered they are ready to receive families as they have a place for the kids to sit, draw and read in the reception. We got a nice room on the annex building (ground floor) it was great as we were managing big luggage. Rooms are big enough, beds are comfortable... More

We stayed (two adults, two children) in the top floor adjoining rooms of this quaint hotel. Full of character including a squeaky staircase. Our host Stefanie was most welcoming. The breakfast was a little too continental for my liking. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here for a conference last week and have no complaints. The continental breakfast was simple, delightful and of excellent quality. It was a cosy place to come back to after a long day. Yes the paint is worn in places, yes, my teacup on the first morning was chipped but to be frank, with the amount of I... More

Looking at all the reviews most people seemed to have stayed in the annexe. We were in the old building in a double room on the third floor, overlooking the park. The room was old fashioned but clean, the bathroom let it down. We couldn't adjust the water for the shower so had to be very careful it wasn't too... More

A quite large and old hotel about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Tours. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Inside it has been renovated with a modern acceuil, the stairs are a little less modern but the rooms redecorated, bright, clean and well-equipped. We ended up on the fourth floor, which was quite a trek up the... More

This little hotel was very much as I had hoped it would be. The receptionist was very charming and welcoming when I arrived late. The hotel itself is slightly ils fashioned but really charming in this lovely little "place" about 15 mins walk from Old Tours. My room was small, clean and comfortable AND there was a chair which is... More

This was an ideal stopover on our drive back to the UK. We were unfortunately just to late to visit the Saturday market in Tours, but enjoyed the farmers' market on Sunday morning right outside the hotel. We also enjoyed visiting the old quarter in town. The rooms were nicely furnished, and great to have two inter-leading rooms for the... More

10 minute walk to Tours centre, plenty free parking outside and friendly staff. The room was big and airy and nice bathroom. Very quiet at night and morning too. Breakfast finished a little too early at 9 am, after a long day traveling I would have liked breakfast a little later.

I stayed in Hotel Rabelais in October 2014 and really enjoyed my stay. The room was large and clean with a nice bathroom. Parking was on street but easy and the centre of Old Tours is within a 15 min stroll. Breakfast was very good with a good choice of foods, very much appreciated as France is not well known... More
