“Elegant and peaceful”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We stayed 2 nights in a deluxe king on the first floor of the chateau. The room was spacious and light with a view of the Loir river in the valley below. It was beautifully decorated with a large chandelier and antique furniture.

After champagne on the terrace, we had dinner in the gourmet restaurant on our first evening and in the bistro on the second. The food in both is beautifully cooked and presented. Breakfast was also in the bistro - on our second morning, we had to go to reception to ask them to call someone to take our order (why hide in the kitchen?). Otherwise, service was very good.

Do visit nearby Angers (especially the castle and cathedral) and the beautiful chateau of Plessis Bourre, a short drive from the hotel.

Room Tip: Worth extra for a room in the chateau.

We arrived at the hotel on a very warm afternoon in August after a long drive from Ile de Re and were immediately cheered by the receptionist informing us that as the hotel wasn't that full we were being upgraded to a bigger room. Other hotels please note great way to treat your guests.
The room itself was very spacious and well appointed whilst having plenty of period features which lifted it above many of the bland "corporate" rooms you can get in many top hotels. We were lucky to have the outdoor swimming pool to ourselves. In addition there was a bathhouse with clean towels and robes plus a Jacuzzi and a couple of showers enhancing the experience for guests.
We had booked in to the Michelin starred restaurant and had chosen the fixed gourmet option complete with wines for each of the courses. We were fortunate that the weather was pleasant enough for us to sit outside on the terrace. Amuse bouche and petit fours enhanced our dining experience and despite the price of the whole package it was an excellent meal which will live long in our memory.
So although the stay was quite expensive as a one off to finish off our road trip this hotel is strongly recommended. The room was great and the food really top notch, go and try it.

It is probably more apt to describe it as a manor house, not having the classic facade of the French chateaux. The old building we were in in an upstairs room - no lift - was apparently 16th C and the other buildings 17th and 18th. It sits overlooking the baby Loire in a bucolic setting beyond traffic noise with a wonderful terrace for drinks and the gastronomique restaurant which is itself adjacent to the enclosed bistro. The hotel was very keen to have us book in the gastronomique, which we did one night. It was quite nice but expensive whilst a perfectly good meal was obtainable in the Bistro which is not operational on Saturday nights. Incidentally, the same Rose at 40 euros in the gastronomique was 27 euros in the bistro. There were nice touches such as the fruit bowl and nuts in the room each day and the staff were very willing to help.
It is a member or Relais & Chateaux, which means that you are assured of a good standard, but didn't honour our entitlement as Club 5C members to a free room upgrade although we were given free tickets to Angers Castle valued at 6.50 Euros

We were offered rooms here as our original chateau could not accommodate us as planned so were given a 'charm' room. However the room was no bigger than a cupboard and very dark with just one window.

The hotel graciously offered us an upgrade at no extra cost, which we gratefully accepted and even though it was on the second floor, was very beautiful.

We opted for the bistro selection at dinner which was delicious as was the breakfast,which had been kindly been offered to us by the chateau which had originally cancelled us.

The director was apologetic as she could not offer us the same room for the second night.

Once we said we were then checking out, she did seem to lose interest in us, and left us saying she 'would then try and sell the room we were not taking' which somehow took away the glamour.

Had the internet pictures shown a true representation of this small room, we would not have booked it in the first place nor come to the chateau as there are hundreds of beautiful chateaux in the Loire valley area.

However, the pool, grounds,hotel,restaurant are absolutely delightful with a wonderful aspect over the countryside and well worth a visit.

All the staff were charming and well trained and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend to anyone, though would suggest booking a larger room.

Room Tip: Don't book an attic/charm room - opt for a larger one, well worth the extra expense.

We treated ourselves to a stopover at the Chateau de Noirieux. On a hot summer's afternoon, we arrived tired & overheated. The pool & Jacuzzi were an immediate attraction and we soon began to unwind. The setting is idyllic - the terrace & gardens overlook the Loir river, and the only sounds were birdsong and the occasional aircraft. The staff were professional & attentive. We had a second floor (in the eaves) corner room with wonderful views and loved the little extras - apricots and walnuts (from the Chateau's own trees?) on the coffee table, and then a weather forecast card left in our room in the evening with a couple of mini chocolate muffins. In view of the heat, we opted for the Bistro and its more informal menu, but not before a glass on champagne on the terrace! We loved our dinner and also our wine choice - we vowed to return later in the year to experience the gastronomic delights of the fine dining restaurant . After a peaceful night's sleep, breakfast on the terrace was also a treat. An earlier reviewer criticised the 24 euro cost, but the seasonal fruits, local honey, and copious croissants, brioche & breads meant that lunch wasn't needed.

Room Tip: There is no lift and the stairs to the second floor bedrooms may be challenging for some!

The hotel has real presence, approached from a sweeping drive, passing the formal gardens and maze. There is a small complex of buildings around the main chateau which was itself extended very tastefully in the 1920s. The buildings are old and quaint, half-timbered with honey coloured stone. The reception staff were utterly professional but very welcoming. They took pains to organise a trip to a local vineyard for us. Our room was in one of the ancillary buildings and was chintzy and traditional but with excellent modern bathroom and television. Quite spacious and airy. We had a dip in the pretty swimming pool in the gardens which had a very quaint pool house complete with jacuzzi. The meal was a disaster on one level but also proof of the hotel's utter class. One of us was taken quite ill and couldn't get past the (excellent) amuse bouches and champagne. The staff were very solicitous and took the abandonment of the meal with complete aplomb. While the ill one recovered in bed, the healthy half had his meal taken to the bedroom by the waiting staff with much clucking around the indisposed guest. She was also brought an infusion of fresh ginger to help with the ailment. While this spoiled what promised to be a perfect meal on the hotel terrace, it was also proof of what a truly classy joint the Chateau is. We shall certainly return to enjoy the parts of the Chateau, such as the lovely gardens, circumstances prevented this time around.

Room Tip: The rooms in the adjoining buildings are quite lovely - you won't be short-changed if in one of...
