“overpriced, poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Location is okay, but most hotels in Chinon have a fairly good location. Did not feel very welcome in the property. We stayed 3 or 4 nights. We had several days the DND on and still the staff went into the room to clean. Showering was sitting in a bath tub. The worst was when we settled the bill. We were originally told a much lower rate and the party we were traveling with had a different rate as well. The owner coldly said we do not have this price; oh well you had told us upon arrival. That was the end of it. We paid the entire bill and left. Would I recommend it or come back again.....everyone should avoid it.

Stayed in this hotel 1 night in October 2012. The room was actually pretty charming, comfortable bed, clean bathroom on the top floor (3 flights of narrow winding stairs) of the addition part of the hotel. The room had a view of the street, was inexpensive and had very easy parking and location. That being said, the walls were extremely thin and we could hear the person in the next room turn over in his bed and talk on his phone all night. You could also hear anyone come in that entered the building. So because we slept so poorly (if at all) I am giving this hotel 3 stars.

this hotel is in a great location in the center of the old part of Chinon. The hotel has a lovely courtyard where you can relax have a drink and enjoy the afternoon. The rooms are quite varied some are updated and others are not. But overall they are very clean and fairly spacious for old france. The breakfast was good.

The hotel was nice, the staff were really nice and helpful, paid 72euro for night, was worth it. Lovely room with a bath tub, location is great, a minute walking from the river.
The only thing we didn't like was that the room wasn't properly clean, there were spiders on the ceiling...

Hotel has a lot of character, wood beams, creaky floors, no elevator. Some rooms are very small. Excellent breakfast. Helpful staff. Pleasant courtyard, but not secure. One member of our group had his bicycle stolen at night.

We were delighted with our stay at the Hotel Le Plantagenet! The owners were lovely, rooms were a good size & clean, there was a nice garden to have a drink or relax on a lounge chair, all right in the middle of one of this picturesque town in the Loire Valley. Definately value for money & worth a visit!

Nice big room, clean, probably expensively furnished, but not my taste in decor-that's just a personal thing. We didn't have breakfast but the menu looked good and included real PG tips. Another nice touich was that whilst rooms did not have a kettle, there was a communal complimentary tea+ coffee making facility at the foot of the stairs in our block and in the main building lounge. On street free parking just a few paces away from the reception. Will stay here again.
