This was a last minute booking for an overnight stay returning from the South of France. The Hotel was small and friendly, no problem with the dog, and our room looked onto the next door building (Town Hall?) which was covered in Sand Martin nests and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the parent birds feeding their young. The food in the... More

Excellent hotel virtually on the banks of the Loire within easy reach of the town, chateau and equestrian centre. Fabulous room with clean en-suite. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast and evening meals. Great value for money - we would definitely book again.

We spent a delightful few days at Hotel Cristal in romantic Saumur on the banks of the Loire, in the very heart of the Loire Valley. The hotel is situated right on the Loire, close to all of the town's amenities, including the main shopping area, lovely squares, good eating opportunities, and the wonderful Chateau Saumur about 20 minutes' leisurely...

Right on the river front this hotel is great for Chateau Bashing and relaxing. The rooms are comfortable albeit a bit bijou and lacking in storage space if you need to unpack a lot of clothes. Parking is very close if you don't mind getting to the car park before 9 am to pay for a few hours although you... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but only had dinner here. The staff were friendly and the menu was interesting without being too exciting. The dishes were well presented and the service was efficient. We might have liked a few more regional dishes but what we had was tasty and the Loire wine very good. The only real downside was... More

Lovely hotel, friendly staff wih great language skills who didn't laugh at my attempts to speak french! The restaurant is great, but could think of a few more vegetarian and light meal options. Make sure you true the tomato and mozzarella salad with balsamic sorbet! The housekeeping team could do with a checklist refresh, and if you have any sort... More

This hotel was right on the river and we had a lovely view from our room. There is a castle directly behind the hotel within walking distance which is very picturesque. It's well located close to great restaurants and bars and we went to the fabulous produce markets in the square and bought delicious food for a picnic in The... More

Nice to stay in hotel that's not part of a chain, we didn't eat in the evening but restaurant busy and looked excellent, breakfast fine. Its not 5 star but doesn't pretend to be, location for the rest of Saumur and old town is priceless, easy staggering distance and you let yourself in. When they get air conditioning in 5... More

Stayed for two nights room only. Room was clean but toilet in corner of room and bathroom in another room was not a good feature. Hotel is a 2 star but location for price was excellent, i.e in the old part of town next to a couple of excellent budget restaurants. Better hotels outside town but to enjoy old part... More
