This is a small hotel with great service. While the room was not huge it was clean and the bathroom was very functional even if the hot water took a very long time to reach the shower. Parking is in a gated area behind the hotel so your Jag or Merc will be very safe as was my Renault. There... More

Arrived after a long day cycling. I was recommended it as being good value for the money and it was. Exceptionally clean with an extremely friendly manager who spoke excellent English. A great breakfast was provided. Only it's location, near the station, stops it from 5 stars.

If only this hotel was not so near the railway, I would have given it 5 stars. The room was very clean and tidy with a huge bathroom, the breakfast was one of the best during our trip, lots of fresh bread etc, and cereals. Several different types of tea to choose and good coffee. And a kettle to make... More

This hotel was fine - decent sized rooms, a unique and wonderful rolling table across the bed (think hospital dining) on which to place stuff and use as the computer desk - brilliant idea! - but its location kills it really. You need to drive back across the island into the main town, which for dinner etc is a bit... More

Had a fairly disastrous motorcycle trip to Barcelona Primavera Festival last May, doing the same trip to the same festival this May on the basis that lightening seldom strikes twice.

Picked this hotel at random from the internet. Late decision but what a great choice. Super room,clean and tidy. Excellent bathroom facilities. The only downside is that it is on the 'wrong' side of the bridge,but a little bit of exercise is good for you ! Car parking is in a locked yard. Beds are clean and comfy. Tea/Coffee in... More

Really enjoyed our stay here with "MarchFrance" see detailed write up below. Only other comment would be there is no lift so it's good exercise if you are on the 3rd floor. The walk to the town is about 10 minutes. We would definitely recommend the hotel.

I was staying here with family and we occupied 3 rooms. All 3 rooms had views over to the castle. The rooms were clean and spacious, there was a kettle which is rare in French hotels. The breakfast was very varied with cereals, croissants, different breads, with a variety of extras and at 8€ worth it. Loved the fact there... More

A very pleasant hotel near the railway station (not noisy). Looks a disaster from the outside, but inside very well maintained and impeccably clean. Most helpful and friendly host made us feel very welcome. 10 minutes walk to the banks of the glorious Loire. Room tiny but functional and clean. Did not have breakfast, but saw what was on offer....
