“Fancy and comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

This is not the type of place I normally stay in as a budget traveler, but my original hotel had to cancel my reservation at the last minute due to a family emergency and I was rebooked here. Our double room (huge bed!) was exceptionally comfortable and clean, with a hot shower. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was the best--we are talking about fresh squeezed orange juice!!!! There was free Wifi too. The location was handy to the train station, and about 15 -20 minutes walk to the historical attractions. The winter rate for a double was 74 euro a night, which is a great value considering what you get, so if you can afford it, go for it!

I chose this hotel for a large party at short notice so I wasn't terribly hopeful; how wrong can you be? We arrived first and I explained in my best schoolgirl French that the rest of the party were following on The two people on reception did me the courtesy of replying in French so I assumed I had been very clever - until they discussed our room selections in perfect English! We were made to feel welcome immediately, which counts for a lot.

Our rooms were amazing. The decor is fabulous, quite different and well thought out. The bed was incredibly comfortable, which is not something I say very often. Everything was beautifully thought out and to a very high standard. There were some lovely touches like a bottle of water and a bag of Haribo each day we were there. Quirky and fun.

I was worried about being close to the station but in the three nights we were there, despite having a room overlooking the station, we neither heard nor saw a train. The sound proofing was excellent.

Breakfast was excellent. A varied choice for a continentatl breakfast. There is a superb coffee machine and also a great range of teas. Fruite and drinks are available all day.

We asked for a recommendation for dinner and the owner, Julian, booked us into a restaurant he regularly eats at and it was first class.

Each Saturday, Julian, the owner, invites a winery in to the hotel to demonstate their wines to guests. What a lovely idea. I ended up buying some quite wonderful Cremant de Saumur and tasted several other excellent wines.

I will definitely visit this hotel again. I loved Saumur but the standard of the hotel contributed to us all having a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: I saw several rooms and they were all fabulous.

Ibis Styles is an ultra modern boutique hotel, with all the required mod-cons, close to transport, the cafe district and medieval centre. Our trendy decor room was average size but with a king size comfortable bed and a very well appointed bathroom. Service was thoughtful, even prior to arrival, with a request to hold luggage for a week while we toured another area willingly accepted. Guests were invited to a complimentary wine tasting on the weekend we stayed, hosted by the owner, Julien, who also was a visible presence during dining hours and at reception. Complimentary bottled water and sweets were provided in the room each day, as were tea, coffee and snacks in the dining area all day. Breakfast was a cold buffet but with a good range of choices and was included in the tariff. Our room faced the station but we were not disturbed by train noise. We usually avoid hotels near stations but this one is more like a country station with arrivals / departures early in the morning or in the evening on weekends and there were no "characters" hanging around. We also had a clear view of the Chateau de Saumur from our room. It is only a 15 minute walk to the medieval centre and the Tourism Office and a further 5 minutes to the chateau. There are good shopping and dining options, as well as local tourist activities such as visiting the Cadre Noir, horse and carriage or boat tours, local wineries and pleasant river bank walks. This hotel is value for money and real effort was put into making us feel welcome.

Room Tip: Ask if there is an upgrade available for a king room (offered without us asking)

We had a very warm welcome. It is probably my favourite of the Ibis hotels that we've stayed in. The furnishings all looked fresh and new. The decor is very modern and cheerful.
Children seem to be well catered for with special crockery and cutlery in the breakfast room and even their own little IT corner with V-tech equipment.
It doesn't have a restaurant but there are several just a short, attractive walk away across the Loire.
Our room overlooked the railway station and the town beyond. Any train noises were not intrusive.
We slept really well.

A good value hotel with comfortable rooms, good quality beds and a good breakfast. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. There is a small car park (only 6 or 7 spaces) at the back of the hotel, otherwise you might be able to park free on the road outside until 9am or there is a large free car park a few minutes away. Although the hotel is opposite the railway station the road was fairly quiet. The town is a pleasant 15 minute walk away. Wi-Fi is free. Overall a good choice at a fair price.
