                  Excellent location, very good facilities, friendly staff. No lift.

                  Overnight parking at nine euros was excessive, especially given I used a motorcycle.

                  9.2

                  We liked particularly, the position overlooking the little square. The decor is amazing. A stunning building. Staff were, at all times, friendly and helpful.Only one recommendation for improvement and that is a pillow menu! Down pillows would have been wonderful.

                  Rather a hard bed!

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  Great location with very nice continental breakfast included and close secure car park for small extra fee.free Wi Fi which seems to be everywhere now.Close to good restaurants and main sights and laundry facilities

                  Need to ensure that you request a room overlooking the square and close to reception as it can be a big haul up narrow stairs to your room

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Friendly & helpful reception staff. Very central location within easy walk of chateau in a mainly pedestrian area with shops post office on same street. Although cenrtal not really noisy.

                  Not too easy to find & you have to read signs that say buses & hotels only & then you are confronted with a rising bollard in the road but actually when you are at this point the hotel is on the right corner but you tend not to see it because you are wondering whether to turn left or to try going through the bollard by speaking on the microphone!! The private garage of the hotel is essential if you have a car because of its location but you need to pre reserve it although it is free & only 50metres from the hotel.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Katrina, who was the receptionist on our arrival was outstanding. We had booked a table in the restaurant in advance and the meal was excellent.

                  In the restaurant we were served with our aperitif promptly but then had a wait of 25minutes to have the food order taken, which is unacceptable. The staff were excellent, but it was obvious that there were insufficient restaurant staff for the number of customers.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  OK, we got a deal on price. But the room was very tiny and the noise from the street was mind boggling starting at 4:30am. Steep stairs added to the fun. But staff was wonderful just wouldn't get the cheap room again.

                • Couple
                  7.0

                  Great location and very friendly staff.

                  Room was very dated and bathroom was small.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Excellent reception staff giving a warm welcome. Good breakfast buffet. Hotel in a prime location in the pleasant, historic town of Chinon

                  We asked for a twin-bedded room. The room in fact had a king-sized double bed plus a separate single bed( a child's?) Adequate but not ideal

                • Older travelers
                  7.0

                  The hotel is attractive and has considerable historic interest and various terrace areas. the restaurantwas pleasant and the food generally of a good standard although I was disappointed that a simple meal like an omelette was not avaialable. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Good secure parking facilities at a price. I would use the hotel again but avoid a front facing room.

                  The room was at the front of the hotel and too noisy. No provision had been made to allow quiet enjoyment. The weather was warm but the room had no air conditioning so the only way to get some cool air was to open the window. This let noise in at intervals all through the night. Staff clearing tables in the square, revellers going home, street cleaners, etc. The fan provided was too noisy and close to the bed for comfort and had tio be switched off most of the night.

                • Group of friends
                  10.0

                  I asked for a room with a balcony and a view onto the square. This I got and it was just perfect. I traveled with a group of 15 people who all stayed in the hotel. The central location was fabulous. There was outdoor seating for at least 4 restaurants on the square so it was a wonderful rendez -vous point. The fact that several of our balconies overlooked the square meant that we almost felt it was our own delightful space. The hotel also had a rooftop terrace which was extremely useful for our little private gatherings. Thumbs up all round. it suited our purposes to a T.

                • Older travelers
                  5.4

                  Hotel staff were very helpful. Good selection for breakfast buffet.

                  Hotel difficult to get to on a Sunday due to road being closed so lunches can be served in the square, also restaurant was closed Sunday evening. Hotel room was very hot and would be more comfortable with air con.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  We enjoyed walking and touring the town and learning the history of the area.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Excellent location in very beautiful town. Delightful restaurant Au Chapeau Rouge is next door. The hotel is in an attractive and lively square in the heart of the old town. Parking (public and paying) was OK for us but could be a hard to find in high season.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Good location to visit the area. Comfortable very good location in centre of the town. We used it as an overnight stop on way south but would go there again for longer stay.
