My friends and I travelled to the Loire Valley in May 2017 and were very pleased with our choice of hotel. We were in the area to take in a bit of sight-seeing but primarily to visit the Musee De Bindes, the tank museum, across the river and up beyond the beautiful château that dominates the hillside overlooking the main town of Saumur.
The hotel is based on a small island in the middle of the Loire river and easy to find. It is close to several bars and restaurants, but if a wider choice is preferred, then a ten minute walk across the bridge will bring you to the old town where there is some further choice available.
The hotel itself is bright and airy, and we were able to have a couple of drinks in the bar straight after checking in, which was very welcome after being on the road and ferry from England for about nine hours.
Rooms were very well appointed and clean with spacious beds, nice views from the windows, tea and coffee facilities, and a lovely bathroom with twin wash basins, towels, bathrobes and complimentary slippers for both sexes. I got a good night’s sleep here which is unusual for me on the first night away from home, so that says a lot about the comfort of the bed.
Breakfast was a pretty standard continental fare of breads, cold meats, cheeses, cereals, fruit and juices, and hard boiled eggs. There were also fresh eggs and a boiler for those who like a soft boiled egg. Very enjoyable and all three of us left the table satisfied.
Pleasant and helpful staff who also spoke English, which was handy for us. There is also a part-covered car park at the back of the hotel but there is more than adequate parking outside.
Would recommend. less
