“Nice Hotel, good location”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

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.

What a wonderful, quiet and charming hotel, overlooking the Loire River. Our room was overlooking the Loire, which you pay more for, but well worth it. It was so nice to open the windows (watch out with dusk and the little insects) and gaze out upon the river and see the wonderful Chateau off in the distance. The hotel is very quiet and provided free parking on the street, or just a little walk away in their outdoor car park. Or you could park in the hotel's undergroun garage for a fee. Breakfast was very good, with a bonus of the setting of the dining room overlooking the River.

Room Tip: Pay little extra to get a room overlooking the Loire.

We stayed a night in this beautifully positioned hotel. The room was modern and spotlessly clean.
Save your money by having a cheaper room at the back and having a drink seated in the comfortable bar and a wonderful view of the Chateau and River. There is a carpark under the hotel, but an overspill one just around the corner that is free. A short walk over the bridge into Saumur and you are right in the centre. We had a very nice meal at Auberge St Pierre.
