A very pleasant hotel near the railway station (not noisy). Looks a disaster from the outside, but inside very well maintained and impeccably clean. Most helpful and friendly host made us feel very welcome. 10 minutes walk to the banks of the glorious Loire. Room tiny but functional and clean. Did not have breakfast, but saw what was on offer....

This little hotel is ideal for a local area base or stopover at Saumur. The owners are more than friendly and our room had recently been smartly refurbished and was clean and bright. The City Centre is a ten minute walk and has many excellent restaurants and some lovely old areas. The walk is across two big bridges over Le... More

Stayed just one night on route but would be very happy to return on the next visit. Owners were very warm and welcoming. Rooms very pleasant, spotlessly clean and quiet (double glazed) with very comfortable beds. The hotel was also inexpensive and has the added bonus of secure parking. Near the railway station on the north bank of the Loire,... More

Although initially concerned regarding noise as the hotel is close to the station we had no reason to be, the rooms are very quiet with double windows. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Secure parking was excellent and a very welcomed to keep the motorcycle secure. A short walk, 15 mins, gets you into the old part of Samur. Well... More

This was the final hotel on our Loire cycling tour arranged by bicyclette-verte and the best of the tour. The rooms were recently refurbished and clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfast hearty. All that topped off by very warm and homely hosts. My only problem would be the noise from the nearby train tracks which is not too... More

We were a family of three staying in a triple room. The room was well appointed with comfortable beds, plenty of towels and a lovely, large, newly renovated bathroom. Everything was clean and crisp, and the view was spectacular! The owners were very helpful and friendly, offering to watch our bags so we could explore the town more on the... More

The rooms are nicely decorated, really clean and confortable as is the bathroom. Easy to get to with a secure parking which is quite convenient. An easy and lovely walk to get to Saumur old town. And seeing the castle from a distance from the hotel and getting closer to the historic center. Choices of restaurants around if you don't... More

Unbelievably friendly and helpful hosts. For the money there is no better place to stay. They went out of their way to make sure we got the most out of our stay in Saumur. We had been cycling through the loire and this was one of our final stops. Particularly good for cyclists....

We had booked 2 nights here as that was all we could get during a busy festival period but we wanted to stay much longer. The young owners are delightful and the local paper had a photo of them in an article on accomodation for bike riding in the Loire the day we booked in! The first thing you notice... More
