Reviewed 3 June 2013

We recently visited France and choose to stay at the Relais; Great location for those deciding to travel around Blois and Loire Valley vicinity...
Rooms are beautifully appointed, Breakfast is excellent, we did not have an opportunity of dining in the restaurant this time... the service is truly faultless;
Memorable experience.!!

We stayed a night here.Found it by chance. Large property and surprising quite full on a weekday in a middle of nowhere. 134 euros a nite. They have a forest to stroll around, with beautiful sunset, make the trees glow in golden hues.
We seen a lonely swan and a hedgehog.Nature comes out at nite.Quite enchanting actually. Reception is polite and matter of fact like.
Breakfast is letdown.An extra 14.5 euros per person. Sorry to say that.

This is an excellent place from which to explore the eastern Loire Valley. All the major chateaux between Tours and Blois are within 40 minutes drive; even the wonderful city of Bourges is just over 1 hour.
The hotel functions perfectly. The rooms are comfortable and very pleasantly furnished. Breakfast is excellent and dinners during our most recent visit were superb. there is a splendid list of Loire wines. The garden is extensive and there is a pool which can be covered.
This all comes at a price which is slightly higher than you might expect. BUT Le Relais de Landes is a class act and you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable and quiet but I suppose the ones upstairs in the original house have m...

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 4 years on our way to the South. The price seems to have increased significantly but with nothing to show for it. The food was uninspiring. The pool chairs needed replacing. We could not see the justification for the price rise.

We chose the hotel because it was a Relais du Silence and because of the Trip Advisor Reviews.
As other reviews have mentioned, the setting is indeed perfect and it was very peaceful.The staff was very friendly and the bed was excellent.
However this is a hotel in need of a revolution. The owners / managers definitely need to understand that you no longer accommodate people in rooms that reek of tobacco these days and also that wifi in the rooms is a must.
Besides, the reason I did not like the hotel personally was the style of the furnishings : it is trying to look chic and classical but in fact it is old fashioned, brownish, nothing like a stylish boutique hotel. It is a pity because one can see that the hotel has made some investments: there is everything you need in the bathroom for instance.
I also agree with another review : breakfast was expensive for what it was. So al in all we have seen better places and if only for the smell in the room I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room if any.

We spent one night here on a tour of the Loire Valley. We chose the hotel because we could eat there in the evening and because it was Relais de Silence and because of Tripadvisor reviews!

We arrived early but that was not a problem. The lady at reception was constantly friendly and helpful and even solicitous! We had a room in the tower which was a bit of a hike to find. It was a good size with a nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, slightly brown decor but fresh not old fashioned.

There is a nice looking heated and covered pool that we could not take advantage of due to various injuries. Also lovely grounds. We walked outside the grounds for about 14k through vines and woodland and barely saw a person except hunters (reception have maps for very long walks or cycle rides that they can give you).

It is a shame that you have to go into the bar for internet - which is also very slow as everyone is there connecting at the same time!

There are several lounge areas, which were all very full when we were there as it was a bank holiday weekend - it was not very peaceful in the bar with there being large family groups and lots of children but I am sure that outside school holidays it would be as silent as advertised....certainly apart from just before dinner the noisy children were not a problem as they were in a different part of the restaurant once we went through to eat. (I am a Mum so sympathetic to young families and understand that French families eat later than UK ones!)

The meal was very tasty if not fabulous. The starter was good, the main course very good, the cheese plate dull and the dessert disappointing. However the menu was 27 Euro (either cheese or dessert) so we couldn't expect too much! Service was charming.

Breakfast was ok - I think 14.50 is a lot for a buffet breakfast but seemed to be standard in the hotels we stayed in. There was plenty to eat and a big basket of viennoiseries.
