We stayed here for two nights as a base camp for visiting the chateau's in the surrounding areas. Everyone was friendly and nice. It was quiet and clean. I loved that our windows opened and overlooked the fountain square. It's a very convenient location for this charming friendly town. I highly recommend it as a resting place in between castle...

Stayed here several times since 2003. Rooms have been modernised and now include a/c but are a little small. If you have trouble with stairs then this is not for you as no lift. Great location in centre of Chinon overlooking square but rooms overlooking square can be noisy particularly in summer as bars/restaurants open till late and bin collections...

My wife and I love this Best Western hotel from the pefect, central location, to the superior, friendly service at the reception desk and very courteous servers at breakfast. Our room was a junior suite with air conditioning which was needed because of the warm weather. The room was very clean, made up beautifully every morning, and it had a...

We had a very comfortable one night stay in early October. Comfortable bed and well appointed but small room. The en suite was fine but on the small side. We had a balcony overlooking the square which fortunately was not in the least noisy. Very good breakfast in the self service style. Parking in the adjacent public car park, free...

This best Weston will take you back in time with its fantastic detailing, very old building but well appointed and smack bang in the middle of the towns square, it's easy to find and loads of parking right next to the hotel, it has a restaurant that serves traditional French cuisine that leans more towards fresh seafood but for the...

The hotel is perfectly situated adjacent to the Chinon town square. You walk downstairs and have a nice choice of eateries and some small shops. The hotel staff is terrific.....they were all extremely courteous and helpful. They are a amazing team! The room was spotless at all times. It must be noted that there is no lift and the rooms...

Dear Madam, Thank you for your message. You booked by booking.com a apartment not a room. In your booking reservation,you may read that the apartment is with a double room and a sofa not 3 beds. It's not mentionned air-conditioning in the apartment. It's not indicated that the hotel has a free car parking. We would make you a discount...

Hello Folks, We stayed for a night on Saturday 3rd Sept, 16. The room without breakfast was charged at 139 Euro. You reach a beautiful little square at the end of the road and the hotel is on your right, nestled amongst bars and restaurants. If you drive under the archway, there is cheap public parking there, which we found...

Great location on square with incredible night view of Castle. Our room was small (they vary) but clean. No elevator but not a problem. There was life on the restaurant filled square at night but since there was no loud music it was not bothersome (we don't drink and retire early). Rooms on back side are more quiet but lack...
