“Beautiful room but very very noisy, disappointing breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2011

We had the Regency room. Absolutely beautiful. Fantastic shower! We had paid for a river facing room but the Regency room is on the first floor and the only view is the bar across the street. Very noisy at night from street noise and noisy in the morning as the room is right next to the front desk and near the breakfast room. Breakfast was a strange affair as it is all set up for you to do yourself but there is no one to ask if you need anything, if anything is empty. You kind of just wander in and get some stuff and do your own thing. I would highly recommend choosing a room much higher up (not sure if there is an elevator) and away from the noise. I wouldn't waste the money on breakfast with a bakery in town.

Room Tip: Do not choose the regency room - too noisy. Find out if there is an elevator before choosing a room...

A simple hotel with very clean and large rooms. The rooms with a view on the Loire river are the best ones, the view is really nice.

Spent two nights here at the beginning of June. Had a lovely room on the top floor with antique furniture and lots of frills.
We chose not to take breakfast but the dining room was absolutely charming, beautiful tiled floor.
The hotel is actually in the commune of St. Thibault which is just an extension of Saint Satur. Glad we chose to stay here as it was very peaceful.
We were able to walk to Sancerre and enjoyed a very nice lunch in the town square and of course some wine. Walked back through the vineyards to Hotel de la Loire.
Very nice pub next door called Carla's Ship, good food and nice atmosphere. Tried the restaurant across from the hotel on our second night - (can't recall the name, but it's right on the river) - not such a great experience food-wise - just o.k. but charming wait staff.
Happy with our stay and would stay again if in the area.

Arrived a few minutes before 3pm. Hotel is easy to find, and we were happy about the sign saying that the hotel "opened" at 3pm. The door was locked, so we rang the bell, and a minute later, a lady walked up to the hotel from the street, opened the door, and let us in. At the same time, another young lady was coming down the stairs inside, I assume she was the one answering our ringing the bell. Check-in was very informal - she just asked for our names, then showed us to our room. We had specified the room we wanted in the reservation - la chambre anglaise - and while it was on the 2nd floor with a rather steep and narrow staircase and no lift, it was the only room on that floor, the highest room of the hotel, and it overlooked the Loire river. Beautiful, vast room, cute decor, beautiful old furniture, very large bathroom with bath tub/shower. Very clean and pretty well maintained, though the bathroom floor was anything but even and there were some large gaps between the pieces of laminate on the floor, which left me wondering about rotting beams, given that we splashed a bit while showering.
The hotel has a free and enclosed parking in the back, for which you have to manually open a large iron gate. The lady said it was locked at 9pm, so we ended up parking on the street because we came back later and did not bother to check if it was still open. Parked on the street - free, and no problem in such a small-town area.
We got some recommendations about what to see in the area from the lady who let us in, but nothing we couldn't have found out ourselves.
Check-out the next morning was as informal as check-in: there were a few receipts prepared at the small table that served as front desk, and we had to ring a bell so someone would take care of us.
The front desk was the only weird thing about the hotel - no one was ever there, so getting information or assistance might have been difficult if we had had any issues. More of a B&B attitude, I suppose, not very hotel-like. Other than that, it was a marvelous experience.

Room Tip: Check out their rooms online, and take your pick!

Charming little hotel in an old building right by the bridge over the Loire. Decor is attractive and homely, but not aged - the high tech showerhead glowed red when the water was too hot! Check out the wonderful tiled floor in the breakfast room. A few stairs are inevitable, but the proprietor was careful to put us in a room as near to street level as possible. Free parking on the quiet side road outside.

There is no restaurant in the hotel. Immediately across the road is a very reasonable and friendly restaurant, Bord de Loire, with evident links to the hotel. Great views, good food, reasonable prices - what more could anyone want?

Very friendly and helpful hosts, great little secluded garden, comfortable quiet bedroom, immaculately clean, good continental breakfast and great view of the Loire from our bedroom. And no Restaurant, so that gave us the perfect excuse to explore Sancerre by night. Excellent value for money.
