Mercure Bords de Loire Saumur
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Saumur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed at the Mercure Saumur during our recent driving holiday to the Loire Valley.
The hotel was excellent as you would expect from Mercure Hotels having stayed at Mercure Hotels on previous driving holidays - we were impressed with the overall consistent standards of this group.
Our room had a view of a quiet side street with you could not hear anything from inside the room.
The hotel was situated in a central location on an island and only a 10 minute walk to the town centre along a bridge over the river with great views where there were numerous bars, restaurants and shops.
The hotel staff were helpful and friendly and the general standard of the interior both in our room and public areas was excellent.
We did not eat in the hotel personally as we preferred to explore the town and eat out.
As we were on a driving holiday in a classic car it was important therefore find a hotel with secure parking – and from experience Mercure hotels always have their own.
The secure car park was located underneath the hotel and access to Hotel reception was via a lift – the car park was chargeable although this was to be expected.
There was also street parking and the hotel also had their own outside private car park in addition to the underground car park.
There was also free Wifi at the hotel which was a great bonus too especially when travelling and the bar area had excellent views of the Loire and Chateau Saumur !

A Hotel in the right place for us. It is very quiet and the staff are very attentive but not in your face. They give advice about the place and although they do not have a resturant they can and do direct you to eateries at your price. This is our third or it could be fourth time and it has been as good each time.
The air con did not work this time but when reported they said it would be dealt with straight away and I have no reason to think it would not be.
I would recommend it to all.

We enjoyed a stopover in Saumur, and after six nights in a tent it was good to find a bed! The room was fine if not huge, and breakfast was acceptable. The hotel is a short walk from the town centre, but we had a wander in the evening and the morning and enjoyed the meal we ate.

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.
