We arrived hot and tired from our journey. We were offered a drink to have sitting in the garden and this turned out to be 'on the house.' Our rooms were excellent. Very clean and comfortable and by far the best we have had staying in Logis hotels. Great value. The meal in the Restaurant was also delicious. This is... More

We arrived mid afternoon on a Saturday for our second visit to this hotel, having driven for 5 hours to be told at reception that we didn't have a reservation. Luckily we had a printout of all email correspondence concerning the booking which we then presented. The proprietress then claimed to have sent us an email cancelling the reservation and... More

Recently traveled through Loire Valley area, went to visit Zoo Doue which was a fabulous experience. We stayed for two nights at this hotel which was a really lovely restful experience. Recently refurbished with an indoor pool and Jacuzzi , although the pool is rather small it certainly is big enough to enjoy a relaxed swim. The Spa is situated... More

Our stay at the Auberge Bienvenue in Doue-la-Fontaine, France this August was fantastic in every way. We have traveled in France for 42 summers and this hotel / restaurant was one of our best ever. We had a wonderful hotel room with access to their beautiful garden. There was also an indoor pool and exercise salon. The restaurant was outstanding... More

We stayed in this hotel when visiting the Loire Valley for 3 nights. Our reasons for choosing the hotel were based on location, the reasonable price and the fact that dogs were allowed. We initially found the hotel quite difficult to find because our satnav initially sent us in the wrong direction so we were a little stressed when we... More

Having booked two rooms at this hotel some months ago through the Logis Central Reservations website, and received confirmation by email, together with Reservation Numbers, we were not at all pleased to arrive there after a five hour drive and be told they had no record of our booking and were completely full. We had to drive on to Saumur... More

Frequently when you return to a location it lacks that something recalled from a first visit but not Madame Roche and her team! Since our last visit marked upgrade of rooms and exterior area around the garden. The restaurant was busy as ever offering high quality medium price meals. Great en route stop as four hours from main ferry ports.

On this occasion we had one of the new rooms, or rather suites, overlooking the garden. Absolutely beautiful, decorated in monochrome colours. Superking sized bed, supremely comfortable, air conditioning, TVs in both the bedroom and sitting room, digital safe, enormous walk-in shower, separate WC, all very spacious. We didn't use the spa although it looked very inviting with a small... More
