“Ok hotel with very good facilities in interesting area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2011

We stayed in a 3 bedroom cottage out in the grounds of the hotel. This was ideal for our family of 6. For some reason, although the hotel knew we were 6, only 5 beds were made up. I had to ask for some sheets and make up the 6th, foldaway bed myself. The cottage is equipped with dishwasher, fridge and 2 ring hob. There are some glasses, cutlery etc. My concern is that, like in our case, this cottage will sometimes be used for 1 night stop-overs and therefore there was no w.up. liquid and dishwasher tabs. This was obviously a problem as all of the glasses in the cupboard were filfthy. I washed some with shower gel. The rooms were fine. Only French channels on the TV. The tennis court across the way was great and there was a large expanse of grass and a playground for the children. There was an indoor pool and sauna in the main hotel but we didn't have time to use them. Dinner was ok but the menu was very limited and food quite basic. I chose a dish that was 14 euros on the menu but I was charged 21 euros and it really wasn't worth that. I only noticed after we had left. If we go again, we won't bother with breakfast, it was pretty poor. It was a buffet as many are but even hot drinks were help-yourself and the coffee was cold. It was all a bit mean and tired looking but still pricey - 16 euros per adult and 10 per child. We were charged 62 euros but one of our children had had just 1 mini box of cereal!
Overall, the accomodation was ok and very convenient but the food left much to be desired. I am not convinced about a return visit.

When we stayed at the hotel it was snowing and we were the only guests. The indoor pool was closed (the heating was faulty) - nobody's fault - but we were not forewarned and we were not offered a discount or upgrade because of it. We had actually chosen that hotel over another one, as it had an indoor pool.

We had a wonderful dinner and a good breakfast. We had room service at no extra cost, although as we were the only guests that was more practical for the staff too.

The room was clean and modern, but felt very corporate - no character at all.

Especially for the price, we were a bit disappointed.

Stayed for a night at the end of a visit to the Loire valley.

This hotel appeared to be absolutely brand new and everything has been decorated to a very high standard.

We had an extremely nice room with a good big bed and a nice little bathroom.

We couldn't get the free wireless internet to work - but that might have been a problem with my laptop.

We had an extremely nice meal in the restaurant that evening - both the food and service was excellent.

The hotel was virtually empty. That may have just been because it was a Sunday night, but I do have to wonder how long this place will last. It's not in the best location for tourists, but maybe they'll get enough business from locals.

I hope it is successful because we really liked it. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

Stayed April 2008
