3 Star hotel in a nice setting on the river Loire in Samaur, France. It is a short 8-10 minute walk accross the bridge to the centre of the town. This is a modern hotel. It is very quiet and peaceful with no traffic noise. The staff are very friendly and efficient and the place is pretty faultless....except, Some of the rooms are small.
Book online and you are given the choice of a normal or 'superior' room. Be warned..... the 'superior' refers to the rooms view of the river, and not a superior standard or size of room. This I found missleading as when we arrived we found the room to be quite small for a double (by our standards anyway). When I argued this point with the receptionist, I was informed that I could have a larger room at a higher price. As I had already booked a 'superior' room, as far as I was concerned, I had already booked a larger room. I would still reccommend this hotel despite the room size though.
One problem, which is no fault of the hotel.... All the street lights in the town are switched off Around 1pm. The whole town is in total darkness and you can't see your hand in front of your face! There are no taxis at this time either.
