We have stayed here several times and found it a good base for exploring the Loire area. The hotel now looks a bit shabby with paint peeling in places, but it's a lot cheaper then most decent hotels in the area, so perhaps excusable. I guess we shall probably come here again.
This time we had a room on the front more or less over the main entrance. The main problem was that the weather was hot and so was the room. There was an air conditioner but even on full blast it had very little effect; we slept with shutters and windows fully open but were still much too hot. There was free wifi, but had to get a password slip from reception for each device, and even then there was a complex registration procedure which other hotels seem not to require. The dinner was good at Euro 45 for the standard menu, and we paid Euro 8 extra for the cheese course as there is an excellent cheese board. The wine list has few wines below Euro 35 and we also didn't like the practice of taking the wine bottle some way from our table as it wasn't always easy to get a waiter to pour more wine for us. Otherwise the dinner was very enjoyable. At breakfast they serve you juice, coffee and croissants, the rest one can get from a buffet table but there wasn't much fruit or cheese, so not as good as it could have been.
