Our visit for 2 nights was very much at the end of the season & the hotel was quiet. On arrival it has a classy feel and we were made welcome by the friendly, helpful reception staff. Our room was large, comfortable, clean, delightfully in keeping with the history of the rest of the building, and our only criticism was that there could have been better lighting in a room with lovely rustic old windows. Dinner was in a large dining room which was quiet given the time of year, and our meal of rabbit & guineafoul was absolutely excellent, with 'wow' factor flavours often missing in much posher restaurants. However on the second night we found that the somewhat restricted menu had not changed, no doubt due to the quiet time of year, so we reluctantly ate elsewhere. Breakfast was well above average, with ample supplies of everything despite the small clientele.
The location is really good, in the centre of this delightful town, a short walk to the famous Azay-le-Rideau chateau, and convenient for driving to other Chateaux & sights. Private parking is available. All in all this is a highly desirable place to stay.
