“Nice comfortable hotel in a lovely town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Hotel is in the St Jacques area across the river from the town - but easy to walk to across the bridge. The town is lovely with a historic fortress, great restaurants and interesting shops.
Our room was fairly basic but clean and quiet with a comfy bed. The couple who run the hotel were charming and made us very welcome. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that. Overall it was a pleasant stay and a reasonable price.

We stayed here on our way South, then again on the way home. The hotel is just the other side of the river from the main town with the restaurants etc. This is great as you can just leave the car at the hotel and it's a lovely stroll into town for the evening. very pleasant hotel, clean and well maintained. Breakfast is a friendly and typically french affair. jam is nice. All in all a good hotel choice. the price is good, the owners welcoming. no language problems either.

Good standard, easonably priced basic B&B hotel on other side of river from Chinon. Pleasant 10 min stroll over the bridge to all the restaurants and bars. Parking limited in hotel, but plenty on-street. Owner helpful and wifi savvy. Good for a few days en-passant to visit Loire chateaux and vineyards.

Room Tip: The main road into Chinon passes the hotel. Get a room at the back.

We found this hotel easily and the very helpful owner directed us to the free and off road parking. Our room was fine and the bathroom modern with the an amazing shower, much better than you get in many expensive hotels. The owners were really helpful and welcoming and the breakfast was lovely.

The hotel is across the river just a short and pleasant walk from the main town. The town itself is interesting with it's medieval buildings and there are plenty of retaurants to choose from. It was a warm evening andf we dined under the trees in the square and it was delightful. we would certainly visit again and definately choose this hotel again.

We have just returned from 5 nights. The owners Catherine and Jacques are very welcoming and only too pleased to help with suggestions of places to visit and to make reservations if wanted. The hotel is well situated for visiting the Loire Valley. It is situated on the south bank of the Vienne and it was nice to cross over to Chinon to eat in the evening.
The room we had was a the back away from a busy road. There is parking but only for 6 cars. The room was adequate with a modern bathroom. Everywhere was very clean and well maintained. Breakfast had a good variety of food and is in nice surroundings.
The only criticism is that whilst there is wifi it is only available in the dining room.
We would certainly recommend the hotel both for price and position.

Room Tip: Ask for room in annexe not main building.

This hotel is great! The couple running it work hard to make you comfortable. The breakfast was fine, better than many others we have tried on this trip. The rooms may be small, but they are clean and the bathrooms are modernized.

Our room was a good size and looked out towards some quaint old stone buildings. Everything in the hotel was clean and pleasant. The bathroom included a hair dryer which I had not expected. I found the bed a little hard but manageable. Free wifi, though I did find I needed to connect, disconnect and reboot two or three times before getting a usable connection. The owners were friendly but not intrusive. I would describe this establishment as a good B & B rather than a hotel. We enjoyed our stay.
