“Best Breakfast selection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Variety of rooms avail, but ours was huge tasteful and gracious (second floor, front); coffee and tea avail at all times in entrance to our building. The best breakfast selection we've had on any trip! Friendly helpful staff; Central to everything in area, and restaurants a stroll away. We even had the phenomenal market outside our window one morning - and we hadn't heard a thing! Lots of free parking out front. Spent three days there doing that 'end' of the Loire.

En route back to Caen from San Sebastian have at last found somewhere not too expensive to stay, where the accommodation is comfortable (and not characterless), the buffet breakfast is substantial and interesting enough to set you up for the day, and the town, Chinon has some interesting things to see without requiring a route march, or difficult parking/satnav/guide book in order to enjoy it. Whilst the older part of the hotel which we stayed in had a somewhat eccentric bath (pink cast iron with a shaped recess to sit in), and old fashioned furnishings, it was clean, quirky, and the bed was ultra comfortable. Parking was directly outside or on the road opposite, although take care not to park directly outside if you are staying over when the market is due the next day. Chinon in January had less places to eat as a number of establishments were shut, but the side streets appeared to offer more. The Cafe 21 is not really that exciting. Prices these days for a v. average meal in France seem to start at any eye watering E20, with no drinks.

Room Tip: There appears to be a newer section at the rear of the hotel. The older room we had was quiet and c...

My daughter & I stayed here July 2011. We had one of the upstairs rooms - narrow flight of stairs but our bags were kindly carried up. The room was a bit tight with two suitcases but clean. Bathroom OK but no shower- had to sit in the bath with hand held shower end to wash hair- not that great!
Parking directly across the street but you do need to move your car to special spots before market day- the staff will tell you where to go. Very convenient- all easy walking. Breakfast in marque in courtyard-had everything we needed -continental. Would stay again. Don't expect anything flash though.

Of the 46 hotels we stayed in during our three months in France and Italy, this may be my favorite. Stay here if you can. Older place but high quality. Easy walk to restaurants and easy access to the castle. Across the road from the river, wonderful for photographers. Cost us $100 for two nights.

Room Tip: Get the room upstairs across the entrance from the office although they are probably all good. Some...

We were on a family trip round in France with our grown up children. We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Very helpful staff. Small but clean rooms. In the evening we had a beer in the lovely garden and in the morning a nice breakfast.
Best regards Susanne Nielsen

My wife and I stayed overnight at the Hotel. Le Plantagenet. It is well located - only a five minute walk from the town centre. The staff are friendly and helpful and parking was very easy in the public car park across the street. We had a room above the courtyard which was fine - clean and comfortable and the air conditioning was greatly valued. The bathroom was adequate but the shower was fixed at an awkward low height. We would recommend the breakfast which was excellent with a good selection of fruit, cereals, cold meats, cheese, fish and pastries. Although we were driving, we noticed how popular the hotel was with cyclists and they were well catered for with a cycle shed and stands. If we were to return to the beautiful town of Chinon, which is very likely, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed at the Le Plantagenet for 1 night in June and found this on booking.com. I had one other night in another hotel in Chinon. The hotel is well located opposite the town's main carpark, which made checking in with your bags a little easier. The hotel is a 5 min walk into the main square. I got the top floor which made things very difficult with the luggage in usual french style. Lugging luggage up 3 flights of stairs the small circular style. The room was ok and had a view over the carpark and were nicely appointed. Breakfast was extra and in hindsight I probably should have just walked into town.
