    Stayed here on the way through France for one night on the recommendation of friends. They describe it more as a restaurant with rooms - possibly because the rooms can be on the small side and average in decor, etc. Small bathroom with flimsy towels. What Miranda's mother (from TV) and I would call "very French" - you'll know what I mean if you've travelled at all in France! I think there are better rooms overlooking the river (it's a spectacular location) and there is now a lift. You can eat on the terrace next to the river if the weather is nice and the food is pretty good. We had their standard menu and the food was interesting and well cooked with wines available at an acceptable price. This is a good stop off, especially if you don't want to go into the centre of Orleans. (A bit of a nightmare since they've started installing the tram/metro.) Here you are close by and just off the main motorway in a pretty, quiet location, with plenty of parking.

    Stayed here several time now as this hotel is very close to the motorway, near to Orleans & very convenient when heading through France from/to the UK, being about 4 hours from Calais & 6 from the Spanish border. Position is lovely, right on the river bank with rooms ovelooking the river. The food can be excellent but sometimes doesn't all work! Excellent wine list, although a bit traditional & expensive. Rooms are clean but very small, with tiny & ineadequately ventilated bathrooms & small uncomftable beds!

    Don't expect 5* luxury here, but the accommodation is quite adequate and well described by PUTNEYBIKER. My wife and I have stayed here on many occasions over the years, sometimes for several nights rather than merely as an overnight stay and we have never been disappointed. You must have a room overlooking the slow flowing river, and if the weather is kind you will find yourself eating on a terrace overlooking the water. Le patron mange ici and the food and wine are well worth a detour.

    Room Tip: Insist on a room overlooking the water

    You must get a room on the second floor with a river view otherwise you will miss out on lovely view. What you will also need to do is to leave all but essential luggage in vehicle as there is no lift. The rooms are 1985 with flotex carpets tiny shower room and really a tiny bedroom as well. All quite clean. Restaurant is all about Michelin flannel rather than noticeably good food. Be better off without a sommelier and invest in some decent staff in the kitchen. Summer menu was still on offer in mid October. Overly fancy dishes with scarcely a vegetable in sight. I expect the restaurant would be a great place in the summer as it has a terrace on the river. The restaurant decor needs a severe declutter, full of junk and ridiculous liqueurs trolley (x2). Capable enough staff but they hover as they have little to do so the meal was raced through by those keen to get home to bed. Breakfast was slightly better than avearage with a token amount of fruit, 4 strawberries. I luckily had a banana left over so added this to the fare.

    Room Tip: 2nd floor river view

    I cant think of a better night stop the food was really outstanding and the bottle of Alex Corton Burgundy was well kept and well served the breakfast hit all the right spots the dinner was superb with the Pigeon being particularly good. The rooms are serviceable rather than great but comfortable nevertheless and most have great views over the river (ask for a room with a river view) True some redecoration of the rooms would improve them but they are more than adequate for a night stop, above all the service was outstanding and took one back many years in terms of its sincerity. Altogether a very good experience. The free wifi was a boon to an Ipad user
