Stayed overnight on cycle tour, nice small hotel, very friendly staff, nicely decorated room with plenty of space, had view over rooftops to the chateau. Had a meal and breakfast in the dining room, good food in nice surroundings in a well looked after old hotel. Recommended. Also had a lock up to put our bikes in overnight.

Stayed one night on the way home from the South of France, very comfortable hotel and good value for money. Had a corner room with views of the bridge and the river, not fancy but clean and well appointed. Breakfast was extra but was a comprehensive buffet and worth having.

We stayed overnight and had both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Both meals were excellent. The rooms were also very comfortable but very warm and would have benefitted from a fan as neither were air conditioned. Central location and view of the bridge also a bonus. Excellent value for money for a family of 5.

Nice old hotel with a good restaurant and reasonable prices. Very helpful staff. We were in an annexe up some narrow stairs, but the room was quirky, comfortable and spotless. Not a great deal of wardrobe space but we were only there one night.

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
