We stayed for 2 nights in July 2014. We took 2 of the standard rooms and were quite happy with the value they represented. We didn't eat in at night, but there is a very smart dining room, serving a standard menu. The hotel has a pool which is great for a town centre hotel, and we were very well... More

I had the misfortune to get sick (and I do mean sick!) on the trip my husband and I waited almost 30 years for. I could not travel to the places and (hotels) we had booked and on top of that it was a bank holiday in France and there were was NO availability or choice. My husband found this... More

Small, recently restored hotel in v. pleasant town on the Cher, run by a charming young couple happy to speak excellent English if your French isn't up to much. Excellent restaurant but pricey, but not so painful on the wallet on demi-pension terms. Good breakfast. Most comfortable rooms. Close to AutoRoute, and the lovely Amboise (Sunday market a must) and... More

We stayed here 4 nights to explore the area and see some chateaux. It is very convenient. Parking is to the rear, the restaurant (not open every night) is fabulous and well patronised (this is a small town). The owners do a great job running the show and were very helpful with our site seeing plans, etc. there is a... More

We have often stayed in this hotel when driving from Caen to the Alps for skiing. The hotel was taken over by new owners a year ago who have set about refurbishing the rooms to a high standard and making other improvements to this interesting old property . The restaurant has always been good and remains so. The staff all... More

Over the years we have been greeted by three owners of Le Cheval Blanc. 'Madam' retired a year or so ago and the hotel is now owned by a Belgian gentleman. The rooms have been refurbished and some are idiosyncratic (ours had the bath on a platform in the bedroom - not for everyone but we didn't mind). Very comfortable... More

We had a really excellent meal here. The food is innovative without being so messed about you don't know what you are eating, the choices are good, the food is cooked perfectly and presented beautifully on the plate and the service is superb, friendly and not in the least intimidating. I would recommend this to anyone and would eat there... More

In its incarnation, two owners ago it had had a Michelin starred restaurant with spun sugar domes over the fantastic desserts.
