“Great hotel”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stayed in this hotel during August, it was lovely. We had a room overlooking the river and the old town, glorious views and a lovely room. The breakfast was really excellent, with lots of choice and variety. We had overlooked the fact that there is no evening meal served in the restaurant but room service is available and the local restaurants are very good.
It is ideally situated for onward journeys to the coast and for local attractions too. We visited the home of the Cadre Noir which is worth the visit especially if you are horse mad but it is great even if you are not!

Room Tip: Do ask for a room with a view of the river and the town.

Pay bit more for a view over the Loire and Chateau ( it was right opposite our window across the river). The hotel was spotlessly clean, rooms bright and modern and easy access to parking either at front of hotel or in a secure car park close by. Easy walk over the bridge to the restaurant area so the lack of a restaurant in the hotel is not a problem.

Breakfast buffet was good with a selection of meats, cheeses, fruits, many types of bread and pastries and of course cereals and juices too. Great cup of coffee overlooking the Loire.
Service and staff were helpful and polite - great place for an overnight stop or a weekend break.

Room Tip: Pay for a room with river view.

Lovely view from Hotel & bedroom window. Room we had was clean but small but for an overnight stay was good. Staff very helpful and friendly. No restaurant in hotel but plenty in the town at reasonable prices.

The room we had on the riverside had fantastic views of the river and chateau - worth paying a little Moore for the 'privilege' room for balcony view alone.
Easy walk to the main part of the town over the bridge and to all the restaurants and bars.
Worth noting that you need to check in first, as you will need the pass key for the car park, which is just round the corner. There is a 10 minute drop off space at the front of the hotel.
Not easy to find if you do not have sat nav!

Room Tip: Privilege room with view of chateau and river recommended!

The views from this hotel are stunning across the Loire River and to the Chateau. The room is good too. However the hotel staff and services leave a lot to be desired.the hotel doesn't run a restaurant although it has a restaurant area. The hotel doesn't offer a room service for snacks or drinks unless its between 7pm and 9pm. The staff seem most uninterested in guests and see them as a nuisance in their otherwise short day. Breakfast was full of tension as the senior and junior staff were constantly bickering..not a restful start to the day!

Room Tip: A privilege room gets you a small balcony.otherwise ask for a superior room facing the river

The air con is perfect, the rooms are HUGE with comfortable beds, the complimentary jacuzzi was lovely (although the 'pants' you are given to wear whilst in the jacuzzi are NOT lovely!) Apart from the maid walking in at 9am when we were still asleep, and the breakfasts being expensive, the whole hotel cannot be faulted.
There is NO restaurant in the hotel for evening meals, although they will do room service at night. They don't have a pool, but the jacuzzi is excellent

Room Tip: Ensure you use your do not distub sign on your bedroom door to stop over zealous maids coming in ear...
