This hotel was fine - decent sized rooms, a unique and wonderful rolling table across the bed (think hospital dining) on which to place stuff and use as the computer desk - brilliant idea! - but its location kills it really. You need to drive back across the island into the main town, which for dinner etc is a bit... More

Had a fairly disastrous motorcycle trip to Barcelona Primavera Festival last May, doing the same trip to the same festival this May on the basis that lightening seldom strikes twice. One highlight from last year was chancing on this little gem for my first night in France - I rarely revisit places, but have been searching the net and finally... More

Picked this hotel at random from the internet. Late decision but what a great choice. Super room,clean and tidy. Excellent bathroom facilities. The only downside is that it is on the 'wrong' side of the bridge,but a little bit of exercise is good for you ! Car parking is in a locked yard. Beds are clean and comfy. Tea/Coffee in... More

Really enjoyed our stay here with "MarchFrance" see detailed write up below. Only other comment would be there is no lift so it's good exercise if you are on the 3rd floor. The walk to the town is about 10 minutes. We would definitely recommend the hotel.

I was staying here with family and we occupied 3 rooms. All 3 rooms had views over to the castle. The rooms were clean and spacious, there was a kettle which is rare in French hotels. The breakfast was very varied with cereals, croissants, different breads, with a variety of extras and at 8€ worth it. Loved the fact there... More

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
