“wasted opportunity”
Reviewed June 12, 2009

Beautifull building, with style. The personel at reception we're unfriendly when they saw two men booked a double room. We stayed in room 38 with view on the river loire. the room was dark, old but clean. As was the bathroom ensuite which had not been modernised since the 80s. Biggest problem for me however was the bed. Exactly as tall as me 1,9 meters with a foodboard. The matras however was ok.
We stayed for dinner. The restaurant is very beautifully located and overlooking the river on 3 sides. The interior is chique. Gastronomically every thing was just fine but not well proportionned we skipped part of our dessert (of a 3 course meal).

Absolutely charming and great value.. My wife and I first stayed here 25 years ago and re-visited with our daughter on our way to a holiday in the Tarn.

We remembered clean but old fashioned rooms and great food. Now (under new ownership), the rooms are bright, airy and well cared for with excellent bathrooms and facilities. And, the food is even better than we remembered.

Hotel is situated on the banks of the Loire in a small village 3 miles from the chateau at Chambord and about 10 miles from the town of Blois. Our rooms overlooked the river and there is a large terrace to relax on and enjoy coffee or aperitifs. The welcome from the owners wife was pleasant but cool in a very French way, but he was charming and personally took the order at dinner.

Choice on the cheapest menu (€28) was excellent and the food was of very good quality with large portions and an amazing cheeseboard with about 8 different goats cheese.

Breakfast (€7) was really good with wonderful breads and both regular and chocolate croissants with super jam served in a large pot - no prepacked factory glup !

On paying the bill, I noticed that they hadn't charged for two short calls to London, but when pointing this out, they said that there would be no charge - now that doesn't happen very often.

This hotel deserves your business - either as an overnighter at start or end of a driving holiday or maybe for a few days as a short break visiting the chateau of the area.

  • Liked — Clean, well cared for
  • Disliked — Nothing worth mentioning
  • Tips/Secrets — Well worth visiting - great value and marvellous food
