“What a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

We returned this summer for our second visit, and stayed 2 nights this time. Ideally placed for access to the town by walking, however the greatest asset is the fabulous views over the vineyards towards the setting sun. Whatever you do, pay the small extra for a valley view.

The rooms are not as big as we would ideally like, and its a slight pain that the fabulous (but quite expensive) restaurant is run seperatly, but you won't get a better view in Sancerre.

Hotel staff are very helpful, and all spoke English when our French defeated us.

Room Tip: Make sure you pay the extra for a the fabulous valley/vineyards view.

We stayed here for two nights midweek. The hotel is just as you come into Sancerre with plenty of free parking opposite. The reception was friendly and check- in took seconds. The rooms were clean but basic with slightly tired furniture. The bed was comfortable and the view over the vineyards was lovely. There is free wifi. The hotel has small pool which is unheated but was a welcome place to relax and cool off. The hotel is within easy walking distance of everywhere on Sancerre so it's nice just to be able to leave the car and wander around. Breakfast was buffet style with a range of cereals, bread, cold meats and yoghurt. I thought it wasn't worth the12 euros per person and the croissants and pain chocolate were stale and felt like day old or reheated ones. Ironically I've had better croissants in Malaysia!!
Our corridor also smelt like a hamsters cage- can't quite explain that as the corridor below was ok. There was nothing really bad about this hotel but for the price you should be able to do a lot better. There are no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms .

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the vineyards as the road side is near the fire station so could be noisy.

Panoramic lives up to its name with fantastic uninterrupted views over a valley of vineyards. Its built on the edge of a ridge so the street level entrance has a couple of floors below, the lowest one has rooms with patios at the edge of a swimming pool. Vineyards start there.

The rooms are compact and modern but storage space would be an issue for a long stay, small hanging space with no shelving.

Breakfast is self serve and good. Would stay again.

We just used this hotel for one night whilst on our 2010 Wine Trip, as part of our travel from Bergerac, via Sancerre, to the Eurotunnel. A quaint little town with this hotel on the edge but only a very short walk into the centre. The rooms were a reasonable size, as was the bathroom, both clean and comfortable. We were on the top floor and the view was stunning. The rooms were adequately fitted out - the ground floor had the walk out to the pool. The breakfast was well stocked and varied, probably better than most. A pleasant hotel that I would happily use again. There is a restaurant next door but we wandered into the town to eat.

We stayed in Le Panoramic with relatively low expectations. After all, it's a chain and you generally don't go to wine country to stay in generic-style accommodations. But we chose to try Sancerre at the last minute and this place has a pool. At 5 years old our daughter has little use for wine but loves pools.

It turned out to be a nice find. Certainly lacking in distinctive French charm, but clean, quiet and not badly priced. That's all I ask for in a hotel, really. And the pool is more than enough for a little kid. It's on the "edge" of town, but in Sancerre that means a 7 minute walk. Free parking is a nice bonus too.

We didn't try the restaurant, bar or breakfast. Avoid La Collina in town though. Astonishingly bad Italian food that appeared to be microwaved from a package.

If you stay at Le Panoramic ask for a view of the valley. Terrific.

We spent two nights at the Hotel Panoramic in Sancerre. It has a fabulous location and views across the vineyards. Helpful staff who made us try our French skills! The room was a little small but again has a great view. Used the outdoor pool.

The restaurant attached to the Hotel is fabulous too, although not for a quick snack but for a proper French meal with good service.

Off & on-street parking opposite the hotel readily available - no charge.
