“Good Location, fair size rooms just needs a little more effort”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The hotel is quite nice in cleanliness and space for a FRENCH HOTEL which generally have small rooms in this price range. The location does require a fair walk to the chateau and coming back is all uphill. The parking lot was NOT secure as advertised and is smaller than needed for the size of the hotel; There is a public parking lot next to it so you should always find a place to park; As a priority club member we were given coupons for free drinks at the bar. On the second day we had to ask the desk clerk to find a bar man as there was never one at the bar. He worked as a waiter and worked the bar so they had to find him in the kitchen. There was no soap in the shower but some by the sink, they should check on this. The AC did not work and it did not get fixed while we were there, but fortunately the weather was cool enough that an open window did the trick.The front desk person was very sweet but did not seem to be able to get anything done, nice hotel but could improve.
The hotel prides itself on its pillows, could use a little more attention to the mattresses.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are quiet but no view. Other rooms may see the river but not that great a river to b...

My wife and I stayed here for a night on our way further south into France. We found the room more than adequate for what we wanted and was very clean. Don't be put off by the outside of the building which looks a bit tired now, the inside looks like its had a good makeover and is very modern and minimalist. The staff could not have been friendlier and the two ladies on reception were superb.

Spent two separate nights in the Holiday Inn in Blois. I arrived with my son on a motorbike after the wettest ride of my life...we where cold, wet, hungry and tired. The staff where excellent, very helpful and spoke to us in English. They even helped us order take away! I was able to lock my bike in the private garden for added security too.

Comfy beds, warm rooms, excellent shower. Breakfast was superb. I'd stay here again without a doubt.

This Hotel is okay if you are on a business trip, but for vacationing not so good. It is over a half a mile away from the best parts of Blois and is at the top the hill, so if you do walk to the cool parts of Blois especially for dinner, walking back in not fun. Also, it does have air conditioning.. except not before May 1st, so our late April trip with a little heat wave the room was very uncomfortable. The restaurant was always empty, never a good sign. The pricing on room service is confusing.. and created a problem, the staff did take care of it.. but still a hassle is a hassle.

It is not very near the castle, but it is not very far away either. So, location is quite good, unless you don't like to walk or have some health problems,
I used to stay in thhis hotel in business like 13-15 years ago, and it was good to see that there was total redecoration and restyling of the hotel, both public areas and rooms. Our room was facing a courtyard, so no traffic noise. It was in fact very quiet, modern and comfortable. It is not luxurious, but still nice to come back after a day of sightseeing.
The breakfast was included in our rate and it was good in quality and variety (the muesli bread was very good!).
Friendly staff at the reception with a good advise for a place for buying macarons (Feuillete!). There is a laptop near the reception with free internet connection, which was convenient to check emails and the weather forecast for the next days.
There are complimentary car park, although not very big. One night it was full, and we let the car near that park (which is free during the night) and next morning we could find a place again in the hotel car park.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing te courtyard if you want to make sure that you can't hear traffic noise.
