It wasn't awful, but I wouldn't stay there again.
We are family of 4, kids age 15 and 12. The "family" room has a queen size bed and a pullout that turns into two twins. When the beds are all pulled out, there's almost no space left in the room.
The hotel claims to have wifi, but it does not work in all the rooms. We had to sit by the door to get any signal. Even then, it did not work on all of our devices, even though those devices worked fine on wifi at other locations in France. I heard another guest saying the same thing at the front desk. The front desk had no idea about how to make it work.
We inquired about doing laundry at the hotel and were given a form with prices. 6 euros for a shirt, 3 for underwear or socks. It would have cost us $100 to do our laundry there. Instead we went into town and found a laundromat.
The location is ok, sort of on the outskirts of Blois, maybe a 10 minute car ride to the center. There is a nice boulangerie/patisserie on the main street nearby. The hotel's restaurant is ok but expensive for what it is, even for breakfast. Far better to go to the boulangerie and have coffee and a wide selection of pastries to choose from.
The place looks in the photos a lot fancier than it is in person.
Blois is a little bit of a sleepy town. If I were visiting this area again, I would try to stay in Amboise instead. Three nights in this place was too long.
