Thought this would have been a better hotel, just because of where it was located. Service just ok. If you want water, you go to the front desk and pay for a bottle. Breakfast Buffet ok as well. No exceptions...you eat the scrambled eggs that are out. The last day there, I couldn't even eat the eggs...poorly prepared. No more... More

Adequate hotel with good wifi and beds. Good location for visiting attractions in the area. This place lives up to my old business traveling saying " I don't sleep in restaurants so I don't eat at hotels". Preset buffet dinner for group of 40 was not very good. Also if you took your time starting you may have missed the... More

We stayed for two nights whilst exploring the Loire valley by car. As per previous trip advisor reviews, this hotel is located out of town and has frequent tour groups arriving. During our stay, our room was clean and comfortable, nothing fancy, adequate bathroom, free bottle of water each day plus tea and coffee making facilities. We had a view... More

Hotel was average, the room was clean but spoilt by the awful chemical perfume that Novotel use in all their hotels now. What is wrong with fresh air? The food was average but the service was chaotic at dinner and at breakfast.

This hotel offers a lot in terms of room amenities (complimentary water bottle in mini-fridge), a nice view and even an outdoor pool. A more than ample buffet breakfast includes a cheese platter. Dinner at the hotel included with a coach tour featured a nice soup, main dish and crème brulee dessert. Unfortunately, the facilty is removed from the main... More

Pleasant staff. Decent breakfast, although only one coffee machine that always had a long line. Adequate rooms and comfortable beds. BUT the room was way too hot (no way to cool it down because only the heat was on), uncomfortable shower/tub, only shower gel and shampoo provided, no electric plug in the bathroom, one bottle of water for the two...

No problems with this hotel. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Nice size bed and the toilet was separate from the main bathroom. The hotel as decent grounds with a good view over toward Amboise which is about a 25 minute walk away. Booked a meal in the restaurant which was good, see the images.

Room was a bit of a disappointment as it smelt of smoke and the room had a few problems, but we did comment at reception and they moved us next door which was much better. The separate toilet reminded me of a outdoor toilet in a children playgroup in the 1970s but that's a personal perception. No kettle etc so... More
