It was our wedding anniversary so we had booked a meal in the restaurant. In the picture online it looked lovely and romantic. It wasn't. When we arrived we were shown to a room on the first floor. There is a coded entry for the main door and a key for our room. There was a lift, which was great.... More

We booked a superior room in this hotel and it was delightful. It's located in the town square with public parking outside. It's been recently refurbished but maintained its old beams, winding staircase and French traditional feel. We had a large clean room with low beams but still light and airy. Bed was large with soft pillows and fluffy duvet... More

Brilliant location on main square, comfortable bedroom with en suite bathroom, lovely building beautifully restored with modern comfort - most impressed. Restaurant classy with wonderful food and professional helpful service. Highly recommended. Lovely town and chateau gardens to visit = cherry on top. Would like to return for historical festival in July!

My cousin was visiting from Canada and we only had a few days to spend in France The room was clean and very spacious and... More

i booked this hotel on the basis of a very small picture in the LOGIS directory, the act that it seems to be the only hotel in Richelieu, and its three star listing. I was not disappointed. When I phoned for a booking, the price quoted was immediately dropped when I cited a website bargain price. The room was spacious,... More

If you are looking for a super, unique and very high quality room, in a very pretty and unusual town, Richelieu is a lovely, quiet town, GREST market in the square which the hotel looks over on Friday morning. This hotel has it all! I will be back.

Lovely village not far from Tours & route south. We stayed in a quadrouple room for one night in August. Room was clean & spacious. Had an evening meal in the restaurant that didn't meet expected standards of the hotel. Spicy king prawns were bland & both these & accompanying barely vegetables barely warm. French diners at the next table... More

Serving food outside on the terrace is always a little bit complicated as far as bugs who can fly onto the plates and food getting colder faster. We thank your for your note and will take more attention so it doesn't happen. More

Stayed for five nights in one of the superior rooms: very nice and airy + comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and Richelieu is a good base from which to visit gardens and castles. The hotel breakfast is poor. Each guest is given a plate with a small piece of French bread, a mini pain au chocolat, and a something which... More

We had Sunday lunch and Friday evening meal here during our July holiday. Both meals were lovely but from the same menu. Memorable were the Millefeuille of different tomatoes with an exquisite sorbet for a starter and Duck with a sauce flavoured with chocolate - strange I know but delicious - just a hint of chocolate. Setting is lovely on... More

This was a last minute booking following a rather disappointing booking nearby which we cancelled. Lovely hotel in picturesque area of which we have fond memories of a visit ten years previous. Evening meal very nice sat out overlooking the square. Breakfast typically French.
