lovely hotel virtually perfect for our two night stay. We know this area but hadn't stayed in this hotel before. Bruno the proprietor charming and welcoming. No negatives but if you are not that mobile the long staircase may be awkward.

This charming oldfashioned hotel has individually furnished rooms - slightly quirky ours was filled with English hunting prints. The room was large with a newly updated bathroom and a great view over the river. Breakfast was a better than average selection including hot options. The owner was welcoming despite the fact that we arrived in the quiet period of mid... More

There has been a hotel on this sight for many years, even claiming fame by having George Simenon stay while writing a Maigret novel. Contact was easy through web booking. We chose the hotel as it had ample parking (right across the road from the hotel) and was although not quite in Sancerre itself ( the hotel is at the... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome from the owner who throughout the duration of our brief stay enjoyed chatting to us and sharing his knowledge of the area. The room which we had booked - la Coloniale - was large and airy with a view over the Loire (and unfortunately what could be a noisy bar). It was spotlessly... More

The hotel is on the Loire in St-Satur so a short drive from Sancerre itself. It is very close to the reasonable golf course if you need a break from wine tasting. The rooms have individual décor, eclectic for want of a better adjective and are comfortable and clean. The owners are extremely friendly and welcoming. Apart from the breakfast... More

We stayed here for 3 nights The hotel is actually in Saint-Thibault, rather than is Saint-Satur, and on the banks of the Loire. Having said that, the views are not that fantastic as there is a restaurant across the street on the river bank which obscures the river from the ground floor rooms, and there is a modern concrete bridge...

We spent 2 nights in this wonderful hotel, beautifully decorated and furnished and impeccably clean. Our brightly coloured "Les Indes" room looked out over the river and really made us feel we were in a special place. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help us have a great time. The wine... More

A lovely old style provincial hotel in a quiet location on the banks of the Loire. We stayed for three nights in a river view room. The Hotel combines the character and charm of a family hotel with some modern twists. it is an ideal base for exploring one of the wilder sections of the Loire and the vinyards of... More

I went out in the morning to take my dog out came back to find the couple, man and very large woman in my room rummaging through everything. Obviously they had expected me to be out longer. An altercation ensued, the husband assaulted me, refused to call the police , prevented... More

It seems to us very important to answer to this comments because what happened this day is very serious. The customer had come in March, 2013 with her dog which had caused damages at the bedding. When this customer came back in October, 2013 with her dog too, we made her the recommendations of use and exactly that dogs do... More

Beautiful hotel right next to the river Loire. A very nice old building with a lot of charm and very pleasant  rooms all with different themes. Our room,( THE COLONIALE) was very large and spotlessly clean with  a nice comfortable bed. Good wifi connection was also a plus for us. We especially enjoyed the great breakfast with wonderful breads and... More
