Spent 4 nights in this very pretty small hotel used as a base for a touring holiday in the Loire. The outstanding feature of this hotel - apart from its excellent location and pretty building - is the excellent welcome provided by the owners and all the staff. They seem to take a genuine interest in their guests' holiday and enjoyment; nothing is too much trouble; they will recommend and book restaurants for you and are interested in your feedback. There is always a member of staff available if you wish to order tea or drinks (no restaurant). The breakfast is wholesome and the atmosphere in the hotel is relaxed, warm and welcoming. I had a perfectly adequate room in the 'Paviliion' with shower (excellent supply of hot water) but I think larger rooms in the main building are probably more attractive and spacious. But overall, a very successful choice. Would go again and recommend to friends.
