We were a party of 19 tired and thirsty cyclists arriving in Thouars from Avrillé. We received a very warm welcome from Roger and his wife and our bikes were secured in the garage before we were shown to our clean and simple en suite bedrooms with portable air conditioning units. There was plenty of hot water and after showering we enjoyed a few beers on the sunny patio opposite the station while our cycling gear was washed for us. We enjoyed a good breakfast the following morning before moving on with universal satisfaction for our stay.
We arrived at this hotel on our tandem. When we checked in and securely stowed our bike we were given a laundry basket to our all our dirty washing in and it was laundered free of charge by the owner. A real bonus. The room was clean and comfy and the hotel was in a good location.
I booked three rooms at the Hotel de la Gare for myself and three friends as a stopover on a cycling tour from Bordeaux to Calais. We found the hotel to be immaculate and the hosts exceptionally welcoming. We were immediately offered safe storage for our precious bikes in the owners garage before being given our room keys. To our amazement, we were also asked if we would like any laundry doing by the hostess, free of charge! Travelling light, we willingly took up this offer and were given fresh cycling clothes the next morning. We took a drink on the patio overlooking the train station, which is a surprisingly pleasant location (the station is very quiet and decorated in an art-deco style). We then found a local restaurant at the hosts' recommendation. The rooms were immaculately presented, being newly decorated, and the beds were very comfortable and the showers worked excellently. Overall, we were very impressed with the hotel and service and would definitely return. Thouars is also a beautiful town worthy of exploration.…
Owners very welcoming, Room very clean, bathroom very clean, excellent shower. Bed very comfortable. Tv had an english news channel. The breakfast was well worth getting, as the cafes in the town can open and shut very randomly. My only reservation was the room was quite small but we just wanted to rest and wash, not hold a public meeting! All in all, we would definately stay again.
We have stayed twice since my last review, most recently last week. As others have noted, the public spaces and several bedrooms have been renovated very tastefully (we were told that more will be done by next year). We stayed in one of the renovated rooms which was extremely comfortable with a very nice bathroom and separate toilet. Prices have risen a little and you now pay extra for breakfast - though it is well worth it in my opinion - but even so it is very good value for money. The owners are charming, welcoming us like friends, though we have only ever stayed for one night at a time. The final cap was a present of M Galas' homemade jams when we left. I am sure a fourth visit will occur.
