“Great two star - atmosphere!”
Reviewed 24 July 2011

I stayed here in mid July, basically by accident. I arrived by train from paris with no booking and the taxi basically took me here!
Looking at the hotel, I stayed on the corner room, top floor at the front.
Atmosphere was great - just a great French experience. The room was small, and it contained two small single beds, tiny bathroom. Great large opening windows on both sides though, free wireless access - allowing it was rated two star - I thought it was great.
Breakfast downstairs in the morning was also pretty good (in a french way) with pastries, juices, cereal etc
The guy that own the place (or manages?) really works hard = he was up working when I went to bed (late) and he was there again in the morning when I got up (early)
Great experience, great location and fairly rated as a two star for a comfortable small french hotel experience in the centre of town.

Room Tip: Try for at the front, overlooking the river

Reviewed 20 June 2011

We went to the bistro attached to the hotel for dinner as our first choice L'Alchemist had been fully booked for the evening. On arrival we were asked to sit at a table of our choice. 10 minutes later (just as we were about to give up) a sullen watress literally threw some tableware at us together with some menus and stormed off. A few minutes later she returned demanding our choices for dinner immediately despite us asking for a bit longer to decide. As I was looking at the menu she declared that is no longer available as it is "trop tard!" She then said "have you not even chosen anything" and then mocked our attempts at French to explain. Needless to say by this point we had had enough of this rude individual and walked off and my advice to anyone would be to keep going when you pass by this bistro...

Basic room with two balcony windows.Rooms smelt a bit stale. Side view of River. OK for quick overnight stop on way south. Staff OK. Did`nt eat here so can`t comment on food. Handy for town and restaurants. Just OK.....

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony

Reviewed 6 October 2010

We stayed for two nights wishing to see the Chateau and the nearby Abbey Royale Fontevraud. Our room was basic but clean. No bed-bugs anywhere. We were up three flights, with a second room in the roof above and a view through the skylight of the Chateau. Not really suitable if you cannot do stairs.
The food in the evening was very good, but breakfast was again basic but adequate.
The location for exploring the town is perfect.
We arrived on the Saturday so knew about the market when we arrived. However, the hotel has an A4 bilingual note on the bed to warn guests of the parking problems. Furthermore the signs in the car park are very obvious.
There is no wifi in the hotel.
