This was an overnight stay on our way back from the south of France. It's a great little hotel, 2 star,basic but very clean with all amenities. Free Wifi, TV, secure parking, and just a few minutes walk over a lovely old bridge into Chinon. And best of all you get the best view of the Chateaux from the hotel... More

The hotel is comfortable and well maintained but not luxurious. It is well located just across the river from Chinon centre with parking on site. We found the welcome friendly, and the optional breakfast generous and well priced.

Hotel is in the St Jacques area across the river from the town - but easy to walk to across the bridge. The town is lovely with a historic fortress, great restaurants and interesting shops. Our room was fairly basic but clean and quiet with a comfy bed. The couple who run the hotel were charming and made us very... More

We stayed here on our way South, then again on the way home. The hotel is just the other side of the river from the main town with the restaurants etc. This is great as you can just leave the car at the hotel and it's a lovely stroll into town for the evening. very pleasant hotel, clean and well...

Good standard, easonably priced basic B&B hotel on other side of river from Chinon. Pleasant 10 min stroll over the bridge to all the restaurants and bars. Parking limited in hotel, but plenty on-street. Owner helpful and wifi savvy. Good for a few days en-passant to visit Loire chateaux and vineyards.

We have just returned from 5 nights. The owners Catherine and Jacques are very welcoming and only too pleased to help with suggestions of places to visit and to make reservations if wanted. The hotel is well situated for visiting the Loire Valley. It is situated on the south bank of the Vienne and it was nice to cross over... More

This hotel is great! The couple running it work hard to make you comfortable. The breakfast was fine, better than many others we have tried on this trip. The rooms may be small, but they are clean and the bathrooms are modernized.

Our room was a good size and looked out towards some quaint old stone buildings. Everything in the hotel was clean and pleasant. The bathroom included a hair dryer which I had not expected. I found the bed a little hard but manageable. Free wifi, though I did find I needed to connect, disconnect and reboot two or three times... More

St Jacques is a small hotel run by Catherine and Jacques. Very friendly, showed us all the restaurants in the town. Our room was 3rd floor, no elevator so pack light, or bring a husband :). Average size room but space well used, not cramped. No aircon but a fan was sufficient in September. Flatscreen tv with lots of French... More
