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

We stayed here for one night during a road trip through France. Great little hotel. Friendly staff and cosy room. It's a little on the small side but the location is great and overlooks the river. The only negative is that there is no air con so at night the room got hot. Other than that great value for money!

Very beatuifully located at the Loire. Clean and silence. Acceptable breakfast for being in France. Very narrow stears, so if you have luggage and are weak perhaps it´s problem. Easy to find free parking near the hotel.
