We are a "seniors" couple and stayed one night in a "Superior"'room overlooking the town square and castle. The small lobby, staircase and small seating area partway up the stairway to our room, were very tastefully decorated and maintained in keeping with the historic nature of this hotel. Our room was bright with a big window, well-decorated and well-furnished, and very comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was modern and clean and well-organized. We had not reserved hotel parking but the public lot was excellent, through a small archway at the end of the square but really almost along the side of the hotel. The hotel is a few minutes' stroll from the river and just two or thee minutes walk through the car park to the elevator leading to the castle. We spent a lovely long evening dining outdoors at Le Chapeau Rouge right next door - fine French/Loire Valley cuisine, chic decor but pleasant relaxed ambiance and excellent service. There are numerous other restaurants in the square and along the river. Hotel management and staff were very responsive to our questions before arrival and equally helpful during our stay. Breakfast room modern and practical and breakfast buffet well-varied and along the lines typically offered to travellers - a quick way to get our day going. We would absolutely visit Chinon and stay at this hotel again - it would have been nice to have had more time. Castle/chateau worth visiting for the views and the very well-presented history. Thank you for contributing to our wonderful holiday memories. less
