I run a small solo operated French travel agency specialising in custom built, independent tours in France. Tours is an ideal destination for the traveller who wants a short time out of Paris in the provinces and does not want to drive. An hour and a quarter out of Paris, Tours is the centre for trips to the castles of the Loire and is an interesting city in its own right. I visited in September 2009 but have booked people there since.
Hotel du Manoir is excellent. It is two and a half blocks from the main rail station and so within easy distance on foot of restaurants, tourist office (where trips depart) and cultural sites. Owners are unfailingly courteous, friendly and helpful. The breakfast is outstanding for a small hotel. There are many more esteemed hotels where I have not been able to get freshly ground and brewed decaf coffee for breakfast. There is fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheese, cereal and an interesting and changing variety of patisseries and spreads.
Rooms are a good size, scrupulously clean and very comfortable. Monsieur will park your car in the very tight front yard of the hotel. He mended my computer overnight and presented it to me at breakfast next morning. I have probably booked about 12 lots of clients here and they all have loved the hotel and really appreciated the service, the comfort, the breakfast and the convenience. Many of these clients would normally be three or four star hotel clients who were delighted. Well recommended on every count.
