I stayed in Hotel Diderot earlier this week on a work trip. The hotel is really well furnished and authentically French. Breakfast was very good as well with a great spread of home made jams and marmalade's, fruit, yogurt and fruit juice and hot drinks....More

Good morning CAROL, thank you for your nice review. I would just like to expand a bit on breakfast : there is a little more than "one glass of juice, coffee or tea, breads, jams and goat cheese". As for drinks, you can also have...More

We stayed at the Diderot for two nights. They didn't give us the accommodation we had asked for but were able to change it. The room had a bright and modern design but was small. If you like 250 varieties of jam, then breakfasts may...More

Stayed 2 nights in Chinon and found the place well to our liking. The breakfast jams come in great variety of mixtures. Stayed in an older part, and the view was OK. Lots of dark oak walls and the stairs had a rope railing going...More
