Reviewed 18 May 2017

The hotel is lovely and clean, just a couple of hundred metres away from the river Loire, and in a good location to walk into the town, that is about 10 minutes walk away. Muriel, the owner makes you feel very welcome right from the point of arrival. The breakfast is well worth the money, there is a good selection of breads, cereals, fresh fruit, jams etc. Although the hotel is next to the station, apart from a couple of freight trains during the evening, we didn't experience any disturbance.

Stayed: May 2017

This is a small hotel with great service. While the room was not huge it was clean and the bathroom was very functional even if the hot water took a very long time to reach the shower. Parking is in a gated area behind the hotel so your Jag or Merc will be very safe as was my Renault. There are excellent restaurants across the bridges.

Room Tip: At the back is better

Arrived after a long day cycling. I was recommended it as being good value for the money and it was. Exceptionally clean with an extremely friendly manager who spoke excellent English. A great breakfast was provided. Only it's location, near the station, stops it from 5 stars.

If only this hotel was not so near the railway, I would have given it 5 stars. The room was very clean and tidy with a huge bathroom, the breakfast was one of the best during our trip, lots of fresh bread etc, and cereals. Several different types of tea to choose and good coffee. And a kettle to make the tea with. Car parking is available with is huge bonus. The owners could not have been more helpful, a lovely couple.The old town centre, where there are lots of good restaurants, is a gentle flat 15 minute stroll across the Loire.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that doesn't face the railway.

This hotel was fine - decent sized rooms, a unique and wonderful rolling table across the bed (think hospital dining) on which to place stuff and use as the computer desk - brilliant idea! - but its location kills it really. You need to drive back across the island into the main town, which for dinner etc is a bit of a downer. If you don't mind staying away from the centre, then go ahead. But if, like me, you prefer everything in easy walking distance, I'd look for another closer to the centre. A pity, as the staff were charming and helpful. Like most French hotels now it seems, breakfast at around 9-10 euros is overpriced, even if it is the full spread. How much can a bowl of cereal and a bread roll and jam cost these days?
