Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We, family of 5, 2 adults 3 children, stayed for a week at La Guillotière. It ist a most beautiful and well tended place. The hosts are exceptionnal: Ann and Sean (not to mention Bran, the coolest dog in the world) are lovely, helpful and with a very smart sense of humor. The house is a 18th century bulding and we loved it's charm. Very nice pool. We can absolutely recommend it to families! Coffee in the morning is on a common table, where you sit with the other guests - very often Germans, who come here, because they don't need to speek French, as Ann and Sean are Irish. Most of them only stay for one or two nights, as there is a German trip-organiser having La Guillotière in his program (he knows why: quality is guaranteed) We had very nice discussions in the morning and in the evenings at the terrasse - we could even mention the war... The breakfast table changes china every day (!) and the 'menu' is huge, even our 15 year old could'nt eat everything (he tried though). A very special mention goes to Bran, the cuddliest, nicest dog possible - our kids fell in love with him. As a resumee: our children have decided, we had to come back, which is the highest possible compliment.

Friends and I recently spent three nights with Sean and Ann at their beautiful B and B. The rooms were delightful, large, had comfortable beds, lovely decor and I had a huge bathroom with the most amazing window... we arrived in the middle of a heatwave and the pool was very inviting. Ann and Sean were delightful and generous hosts. The breakfast were plentiful and Anne's homemade lemon curd a must to try. The B and B is in a very central and convenient location for touring the Loire. Ann even lent us bikes so we could go for a cross country cycle. I would recommend La Guillotiere for your Loire visit.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst in the area for a wedding. Sean and Anne made us feel very welcome and we wanted for nothing. The room was light airy and plenty of space. Anne even managed to let me have a pair of reading glasses after I lost mine which greatly assisted the map reading on journey home. Thank you so much and we will be back. Highly recommended

We had such a lovely time at La Guillotiere. Anne and Sean looked after us so well, and we were only minutes from the lovely village of Esvres. Our room was beautiful and spotless and we had a lovely relaxing evening sitting by the pool. It is a shame we couldn't stay few nights longer (we were just passing through) but we were very glad to find this beautiful house in the French countryside.

My fiancée and I had the pleasure of staying with Anne and Sean at La Guillotiere for a week during our visit to the Loire valley. We travel to France every year and both especially loved our time here. We stayed in the Bernard Shaw room which was large and had an en suit. The room was outstanding in terms of comfort and cleanliness. The room had plenty of space for us to unpack our clothes and settle in after a long journey. The hosts at La Guillotiere had excellent local wine which my fiancée and I both found ourselves enjoying most evenings by the pool. As an added bonus Anne and Sean had a very lovable Labrador called Bran who always, as it turned out welcomed a good pat on the head. One of my favourite places to go whilst staying at La Guillotiere was the local French café, Café du Centre close by in Esvres. The café sold small beers and wines and was a great place to sit outside and watch the world go by. Esvres and the surrounding cafes etc are a drive away so a car would be recommended. The breakfast was excellent as prepared by Sean each morning and purchased fresh from one of the two local bakeries. We both had a lovely time during our visit here and cannot wait to return next summer!

Ann and Sean welcomed us warmly to their lovely B&B in Esvres in the Loire Valley. The B&B is tucked away from busy centres in the Loire, but well situated to explore the beautiful castles and chateaus. The room was large, spotless and comfortable. Breakfast which is included in the rate was excellent (although some cold meats would have been great to cut through all the wonderful pastries). There was a range of pastries, cereals, cheese and wonderful pastries, some made by Ann herself very early in the morning. I would love to return to this B&B in the height of summer when I would be able to enjoy the lovely pool and surrounding gardens and do some walking in the surrounding countryside. The B&B also has an outside kitchen area which is available for use by guests, which I imagine would be most useful in summer if one would like to barbeque. A lovely peaceful stay and a wonderful place to return to after busy days exploring The Loire and all it has to offer.

Our stay at La Guillotiere was wonderful. Sean and Anne were wonderful hosts who made us feel very welcome. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and very quiet. The breakfasts were delicious with several choices, including fresh fruit salad, granola, yogurt, French bread and fresh pastries daily. Anne made dinner reservations for us in a nearby village.....and it was excellent!! There were many beautiful areas/castles to visit in the region within a 20 - 25 minute drive away.......Amboise, Chenonceau, and Loches, to mention a few. Since this B & B is in a quiet, rural area, a car is required. We certainly enjoyed our stay at La Guillotiere and would highly recommend it!!

My husband and I plus 4 other extended family members stayed with Ann and Sean for 5 nights this September. We were attending a wedding in the area. Our stay was perfect. Ann and Sean are gracious hosts! We had quite a few changes, questions and details to iron out prior to our arrival and Ann was quick to respond and extremely helpful! Her dinner suggestions were spot on. The breakfast selection and presentation was superb. We also visited two local vineyards of her suggestion and thoroughly enjoyed them. The grounds are beautiful and my daughter enjoyed visiting the sheep and horses along the long driveway. There is a guest kitchen that was great for preparing snacks and chilling wine that we had bought, and then enjoying by the pool. Oh and to top it all off, it is a great value. Many thanks to Ann and Sean for making our trip memorable. I would definately return here in a heartbeat.

We used La Guillotiere as our base for touring the Loire Valley. It's located close enough to everywhere we wanted to visit. The building is lovely, as are the grounds (and pool) and the hosts, Ann and Sean were very warm and welcoming. All of Ann's recommendations were excellent, be it places to eat for vegetarians (a definite problem in France), places to visit, and which son et lumiere is the most worthwhile. The breakfasts were huge and delicious - with home made jams - we had no room for lunch later on! The kitchenette and fridge were very useful so we could picnic in the evening. Great value, and would definitely recommend it to any friends looking to visit the Loire. Thank you Ann and Sean!

Sean and Anne were excellent hosts, and made me and my husband and 2 year old daughter feel very welcome. There was access to a cot and a high chair, and our family room was spacious and comfortable. We all loved the delicious breakfasts. There was also access to a small kitchen, which meant we could cook up a small pasta or similar for our daughter when needed or prepare some snacks to take out with us. We could also use the main kitchen in the morning to heat up milk for my daughters porridge. There is a nice long drive way with sheep and horses to go and see, plus a very nice garden area. The house itself has a special something about it, and I am happy that we all had the opportunity to stay in it. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
