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.

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.

I loved this place. Sean and Ann took us in after another nearby inn double booked and we had no place to stay and we couldn't have been happier to land here, with their gracious service and welcome. The gardens are small and beautiful and peaceful; the old tower near the pool is a great photo with the green hills behind it. Our room was nicely decorated and furnished and the bath perfectly clean and bright. The breakfast is in the French style, with croissants, bread, jam, etc. and is wonderfully laid out in the lovely dining room. Great coffee too! The views are very pretty as it sits on a small bluff and you can take walks around the area from the inn. I guess the only small negative was that as a house with wooden floors and doors, the noise factor within the inn was slightly loud, but I would still stay here again in a heartbeat!

An Irish Welcome in the heart of France. This is a beautiful place to stay, large comfortable accommodation and a first class breakfast. I can't recommend this place highly enough and will be back!

Our first B&B experience and I think it will be difficult to beat! Upon our arrival around 5 p.m., Anne and Sean greeted us and offered us a drink - very much appreciated after the 4-5 hour drive from Beaune. After we settled our things into the spacious room, we sat outside and enjoyed a glass of wine before we headed off to a restaurant for dinner. Sean recommended a restaurant and Anne called in our reservations. The breakfast Anne and Sean served in the morning was wonderful - pastries, juice, coffee, cheese, etc. It was nice to sit around the dining room table for breakfast with other guests - two families from Germany were staying there at the same time. Thank you Sean and Anne for a wonderful experience.

This was our second stay at La Guillotiere, the first was 2 years ago en route to Southern France. Sean & Ann remembered us & made us very welcome. The location is very convenient for an en route stopover - just a few minutes from the motorway - and for exploring the Loire Valley, being pretty central to the main chateaux. But more than that, it's just a lovely place to stay.
The beautifully presented, well equipped and comfortable rooms are called after famous Irishmen (we were in GB Shaw this time). The pool & setting are outstanding. The breakfast is unmissable. And Sean & Ann make us feel so welcome. It has to be our number one place to stay in France, and we'll certainly be back next time we're lucky enough to be that way on.

"We had the Yeats room, which was big enough to add a twin for my daughter. It was nice that our bath facility was broken up into two rooms. One held a toilet and sink, the other was a spacious tub/shower/sink room. It worked very well for three of us."
