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.

This is a very good hotel in the heart of Saumur on the Loire. The staff is courteous, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very clean and supply all the neccesities in the bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable and they have great views on the Loire. The staff is very helpful in providing directions, suggestions or any other... More

Stayed for one night, the lady at the desk was very friendly we as checked in sooner than expected our room was already made up. Small stairs to the rooms no elevator I can image a hussle with bigger suitcases. The room was renewed and very clean but rooms on the backside have a 'vue sur toit' (view on the... More

The Cristal has been refurbished since my last visit,it is now part of the Logis chain. We had a room on the first floor with a view of the River Loire. The room was OK, clearly distressed furniture, but the lighting was extremely poor. Stairs narrow. Pillows lumpy. Car park outside free for 1900 to 0900.

Three of us had a meal at this restaurant. We opted for the a la carte menu but waited ages for the waiter to take our order, first for drinks and then for the meal. We asked for a jug of tap water along with a bottle of wine, but were given a bottle of Evian for which we were... More

Originally we were offered the most expensive room as it was in the oldest part of the hotel. All I can say is don't! It was reached be a narrow, winding staircase (OK for exploring castles but not for carrying suitcases!) and the window opened on to a brick wall one metre away! It was so spooky I would not... More

The location is very good, right in the centre of Saumur, a very pleasant town on the Loire. Our room was perfectly adequate, comfortable and recently decorated I think though the furniture was deliberately 'distressed' (rather too much in my opinion). The food was disappointing, our evening meal from the fixed price menu was not bad, but not memorable either.... More

This was our third stay at this hotel. Situated just a kick of my shoe from the Loire, it has a quirky charm, with its rickety stair, lovely natural unscripted staff, and great restaurant. I normally like to eat somewhere different from any hotel I stay at, but the restaurant here is so good in both ambience and relaxed outside... More
