My wife and I have regularly patronised this restaurant over the last 17 years since we have had a property in the Loire Valley. It is an old hotel and ideally suited to visitors to Loches, a medieval French city. The restaurant is small and the staff are attentive and quaintly formal in the typically french style. We like to sit by the long windows, which allow close views of the Indre river beneath, with the backdrop provided by a beautifully relaxing small public park. The food is expertly cooked and presented; there is a choice to suit all tastes, i.e. fish, all meats including game and shellfish - usually served with tasty sauces and garnish, as well as delicious vegetables. For those wishing to push the boat out, the fine wines can be recommended, but even the house wines have a most worthy character. Coffee and/or cognac, if required, can be taken in front of the oft roaring fire in the anteroom, whilst sitting on the sumtuous leather furniture. It is not expensive - a typical 3-course set lunch menu with wine is presently about 14 euros.

We did not stay in this hotel/restaurant but we arrived for lunch without notice on a busy week-end and were provided without fuss with a quiet table on the balcony overlooking the river. We wanted a light lunch and that is what we got for a fair price. Particularly memorable chocolat dessert with hot chocolate sauce. We encountered no problem with our slightly fractured French, when mentioned an allergy to shell-fish and reckoned that the view, and food was much superior to that on offer in the charming but busy town.
We have no knowledge of the bedroom accommodation, but do think that your reviewers are perhaps expecting too much for their pennyworth. After all the ** rating is somewhat modest.

Underneath the old city walls of Loches , and with the imposing spires and cuploas of the collegial abbey church forminga wonderful backdrop, the former tanneries and wash houses come down to the river and make an ideal restaurant. Overlooking the river the tables on the terrace are particularly sort after but the dining room also has wonderful views and the cuisine is toughtful and tasty if a trifle fussy at times.
