We had two ground floor rooms that seemed to have been fairly recently decorated and had very large, comfortable beds. The staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good English. Driving into the underground car park was a nightmare. The ramp down is steep and narrow (my Ford Mondeo only just fitted) and there is a very tight bend which I... More

Because I was renting a car when I toured the Loire Valley, parking was very important to me. This hotel lacks parking!! Do not believe the website. Getting into the parking beneath the hotel you have to navigate a very narrow driveway that could easily damage your vehicle. I saw many marks of paint and damage along the side of... More

This is a lovely hotel, which I would definitely recommend. The reception/lounge area and rooms are absolutely spotless and very nicely decorated. Our room had excellent air conditioning and all the usual things you would expect (tea/coffee making, safe etc) and a very comfortable bed. The rooms are all named after film stars, which is a nice little quirk. There... More

We stayed for 1 night in August as part of our drive across France and really enjoyed the relaxed approach and warm welcome. We stayed with our 2 dogs and were very well looked after, we also took advantage of the underground parking. We didn't have breakfast but it did look nice with a good selection. The hotel is just...

This hotel met our requirements perfectly well - clean and comfortable, with good wifi, shower and breakfast. It is very close to the train station, but over a ten minute walk to the old town restaurants- which was a nuisance for us, as it was raining on our way home. Unfortunately, it's location off a quiet side street made my... More

Good shower, fast wifi, comfortable bed, sufficient power sockets, efficient & friendly staff, aircon, ok sized rooms, ok breakfast, free secure bicycle parking, very close to the train station, short walk into town. Excellent for the money. The nearby Chien Jaune restaurant is good and reasonably priced.

We stayed here in Tours and used it as a base of operations for the Loire Valley. This hotel is on a side street just a short walk to the train station and the tourist information office, which is why we chose to stay here. The staff was pleasant, courteous, and helpful.
