We stayed three nights in Saumur and used it as a base for exploring the beautiful Loire Valley. The Hotel Saint-Pierre has a superb location only 50 metres from the main market square. Our room was very spacious and well appointed. The host, Regis, could not have been more welcoming and helpful - and he does a fabulous breakfast. The hotel has parking on site which was important to us. We timed our visit to Saumur to coincide with the Saturday market which was a fantiastic experience and spread through the whole of the old town. We will return to the Hotel Saint-Pierre next time we are in the Loire Valley.

We had two nights stay recently at the Hotel St Pierre. When we arrived we were a little worried about what we were going to do with our hire car during our stay and were pleasantly surprised to find that there was parking in the hotel courtyard. The room was very nicely furnished and looked out onto the cathedral. We were really impressed with the breakfast which was very generous (unlike many French hotel breakfasts) and also found it particularly nice of the hotel to not charge us for our 9yo daughter's breakfast. Saumur is a lovely town and a good centre for exploring the Loire and the Hotel St Pierre was a perfect place to stay there. The public areas of the hotel are very chic and comfortable and the staff were pleasant and helpful, so overall we couldn't fault anything. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the old town probably more charming than overlooking the slightly more modern apartment...

We just ended a 3 day stay and were very pleased with the hotel. The owner Regis was very helpful and accomodating. The room and bathroom were comfortable and clean. The lobby area was warm and inviting. The location is great - right in the old area near cafes and shopping. Good choice.

We loved the week we spent at this delightful and charming hotel. We chose to use Saumur as a central location to explore the chateaus and countryside and were not at all disappointed. Our room was spacious, comfortable and beautifully decorated (as is the entire hotel). We were able to park our rental car in the car park and slip on to the ubiquitous D7 on our daily jaunts. The hotel is located at the side of the cathedral and is only a minutes walk from the " town square" bustling with visitors residents,restaurants and the Saturday market. The owner is a warm and friendly host who goes out of his way to ensure your stay is comfortable and fun. Although hotel is intimate one never feels crowded as there are plenty of nooks and a lovely courtyard to relax and unwind.Breakfast is delicious or just have a really good coffee to start your day. We would stay here again without hesitation.Thank you Regis for enhancing our "lost in the Loire" adventures .

The Hotel is tucked down a lane in the old quarter near the chateaux. They have a park but we just parked out the front. It is a beautiful building and really tastefully decorated. The guy at recpetion was really polite and helpful and the room was absolutely perfect. Good size, felt really luxurious and high quality. The hotel is only small with maybe 15 bedrooms. Very good value for money.

The location is excellent. Literally 30 seconds walk to the lovely old town square with a great choice of bars and restaurants. What is even better is that on Saturday morning there is a huge market right there in the square and surrounding streets. The main shopping boulevards are an easy short walk away and there are a good selection of shops to have a wander around. The clothing shops are mostly quite young themed so I guess this must also be a university town. You are completely spoiled for choice on where to eat and drink in the immediate vicinity of the Hotel so I can imagine why we would stay anywhere else on any return trip. We will definately stay here again and recommend to friends without hesitation.

The really wonderful little bit of customer service though was in the morning we discovered a little ticket on our car window. We hadn't realised you had to pay for parking outside and consequently we hadn't paid. We would have got a parking ticket if the receptionist had not paid the one euro parking fee unbeknown to us! Thats a really nice touch so we will get him something when we go back through next time. Thank you Hotel Saint-Pierre.

We have visited Saumur many times but this is the first time we've stayed in the town. We chose the Hotel Saint-Pierre based on Trip Advisor reviews, and thought it was delightful. The location is excellent, right in the centre of town. We parked directly outside the hotel, and everything we wanted was within walking distance. The manager suggested 2 or 3 restaurants to try and we enjoyed one of them - Le Grand Bleu - so much that we came back a few days later!

The rooms themselves are not enormous but are clean and well-equipped, and the building itself has been beautifully restored. Sadly we didn't have time to try either the whisky bar or the breakfast, but would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in a lovely town.

So beautifully restored building in stone and wood. Bedrooms are not over large but furnished with great care. Bathroom very clean, large handbasin, shower disappointing as it was small with nowhere to put shampoo etc. Breakfast was delightful,lots of fresh fruit, crepe, breads, freshly pressed orange juice, yogurt and tea/coffee freshly made.
A very short walk - 100 yards and you are in the centre of Saumur, tourist office nearby and the river Loire is about 300 yards away. Car park is small but if you reserve a space the owner will park your car for you. A small bar with lots of different whiskies! Very helpful staff.
