“Very helpful staff, lovely room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We found this hotel by chance as a stopover en-route from Caen to Bordeaux; the receptionist was extremely helpful in finding us a room suitable for our family, which happened to face on to the River Loire with a view of the castle and the bridge close by. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped at a reasonable price. Good choice of food at breakfast. Nice walk across the bridge into Saumur for dinner.

Hotel is located on the banks of an island in the Loire. Get a river side room, the view is wonderful - the river, the castle on the horizon across the water. Magical! Be sure to close up the windows before leaving the room, as bugs will fly in if you don't. The bathrooms are immaculate; the beds comfy and linens excellent; no issues at all with the rooms. We had a two room suite and a single. Both were larger than most European rooms at the price we paid. The breakfast room looks over the river; the food choice was fine. The staff were friendly enough. There were a dozen stairs going into the front lobby and no one came to help lift the suitcases, which would have been appreciated by seniors. Parking was close by. We were given an excellent restaurant recommendation to walk to: La Reine de Sicile. Marvelous food.

Brilliant location on an island in the middle of the Loire- everything in Saumur within walking distance. Staff professional and friendly. Humoured me by speaking French when it would have been easier for them to converse in English (and laughed at my mistakes- with me not at me!).

Room was well-maintained and spotlessly clean- nice bathroom.

Fully recommended

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river give a great view of the Castle.

i recently stayed at this hotel, the location of the hotel was incredible, literally right on the banks of the loire, accompanied by an amazing view of Saumur and the local Chateau. Rooms are simply everything you need, overall the hotel was perfect for the annual wine fair and close to a lot of resaurants and bars.

Room Tip: ask for a riverside room and the view will blow you away

( ++ )
The hotel is just right opposite side of the river with splendid view on the castle. make sure you booked a elegant room with tier view.
They have car park, no shelter but secured with barrier.
The property is very clean.

( -- )
The room too small and the bedding too hard (not comfortable at all)
The breakfast is outrageously expensive, better cross the bridge for a coffee in one of the café downtown.
