Staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable, hotel is in the centre of town, restaurant is very good. The private parking is tricky to reach initially due to the one way system and narrow roads.

Fantastic value! The location of La Boule d'Or is fantastic but it is difficult to get your car to the Carpark. The rooms are above the restaurant up a metal staircase and you have to walk through the restaurant to get to them. It can be quite slippy when it rains. The rooms are big and clean and the bathrooms...

We were off to a bad start. Arrived around 7 pm to discover no way to drive to hotel. Having asked for parking we were directed to a parking lot far away. Luckily we found street parking closer by. Then we discovered that we three 70 somethings had to drag our suitcases up a very steep set of metal stairs...

The best welcome to any hotel I have experienced. Upon requesting a bottle of local wine at a table in the inner courtyard Jean-Claude explained with a wide smile that it was compulsory. The rooms were excellent without the cheap extravagance of other hotels, very comfortable. The restaurant was exceptional with the star dish the Coq au vin. Other diners...

Stopped over en route for one night only. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. Free wifi. This is a 2* hotel but is a lot better than some more expensive offerings out there. I didn't eat at the hotel as there are so many other restaurants to choose from, but the menu looked well priced (15-18€ menus )...

We stayed in little town centre of Chinon, in May, in the heart of some of the most beautiful vineyards and picturesque chateaus in the Loire Valley.

We spent 2 good nights at this hotel. Staff were extremely helpful; room and en suite bathroom were much larger than normal; the quality of the food was excellent though the cheaper fixed price menu offered limited choice. Due to the town's one way system and pedestrianised roads it was difficult to get to the private parking - we upset...

“There are only four rooms, it was being renovated so here may be more. We were in the attic which is fine but I imagine the rooms below had bigger windows. The location is very quiet anyway.”
