“Exquisite”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I'll start with a small negative, then on to many, many positives. Our room was in the main chateau building and it was out of a fairytale, soaring ceilings, giant stone fireplace...however the bathroom while clean, really needed a reno. Beds are small but comfortable. Some of the many positives: Impeccable, traditionally French service throughout the establishment; knowledgeable sommellier; amazing cuisine; front desk personnel super helpful. Please note that some of the rooms are in regular, newer buildings at the back of the property, overlooking a field, make sure you know what type of room you are choosing. Recommend and would stay there again.

My husband & I recently stayed at Le Prieure for one night whilst traveling through France. We found the Chateau a total delight with the highlight of our stay choosing to dine in the restaurant.
We enjoyed a most memorable meal with the very best of service provided. A silver service gastronomic feast for the taste buds!
A must do experience for any lover of fine french dinning.

Room Tip: Higher room in Chateau overlooking river. views are delightful!

The old world charm of the surroundings, with the view of the River Loire from the terrace is breathtaking. Since discovering Le Prieure in 2000 we have tried to visit most years. We have supped aperitifs on the terrace in the summer listening to jazz, and on very special occasions have enjoyed the most amazing meals, which always surpass our expectations.

Occasionally we go with friends for an early evening aperitif while our supper is in the oven ten minutes away. The English speaking staff are friendly and helpful and for those with deep pockets the menu is a treat not to be missed.

This hotel was originally an old priory, then a house and became a hotel after the war. In the 1950s a big dining room and many of the bedrooms were added on. Its a slightly odd hotchpotch of a place. Overall the hotel felt like it was in about 1980. The big plus point is an elevated view over the Loire with terraces where you can have a drink and look out over the river and birds swirling around below. There is a really nice pool in the grounds. The restaurant is extremely traditional, the second time only time ever as a lady I have been given a menu without prices in (I'll have the Lobster then?). A bit bizarre in 2012 perhaps. The service was very attentive, the food good but very rich. The bedroom was traditional and a bit stuffy feeling. The breakfast was a low point; I think they had decided to serve cooked food for the foreigners but don't really have their hearts set on it. Quite a bit of the hotel felt like it needed a bit more investment - gardens a bit unmanicured, etc. Overall, quite charming, quirky, but overall felt like someone needs to open the windows, dust it down and shake out of that time warp feeling. (A warning, Saumur itself is really boring.) If you are staying in the area this would be a good bet, I wouldn't choose this as a destination in itself.

We stayed at the Residences, not in the Chateau itself.
Pros: wonderful view (from the reception and bar/restaurant), very calm and peaceful, extremely spacious rooms (my 2 year old daughter had an annex to the room with her own hotel teddy bear and lamp).
Cons: very petit breakfast - we were entitled to one small croissant and one small pain au chocolat for breakfast, apart from juice and hot beverage, as we chose to have the express breakfast, and not the 21-euro buffet breakfast.
In general, very cosy, sympathetic and helpful staff.

we book the most expensive room from slh.com and everything is perfect, great view, perfct garden, staff, food all very nice! but we stay not in the main building( the big castle), but in a small building just opposite the big one. and next wall to us, is a very very large graveyard! I don't know maybe some of you don't care at all but we feel really bad to sleep just a wall next to the whole village's graves!

I wanted to thank you for your kind comments on trip advisor with regards to your recent stay. I’m really pleased to read that you had a very nice stay and you enjoyed to be in our Hotel, except the room located in the Old Chapel! Please note that the room you had is one of the largest.
For your next trip we will be very pleased to propose you another room located in the main building.

We do hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back to the Prieuré.

Kind regards
