“Tres Bon ..........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013

This latest business trip was my 3rd visit to Manoir Bel Air and yet again all was just perfect - peaceful setting by the Loire river , comfortable room with a river view and food that simply excites the taste buds,

I look forward to my next visit.............

We stayed 2 nites, The last of our 7 nites breakaway from Rouen. We come to it by chance. Very accessible from the main road.The reception is manned by a no fussed lady. Take it or leave it style. The elderly sweet guy in the evening is more cheerful. I think he's the owner. We have the choice of two room, chose the one on the 2nd floor, with a huge bathtub, queen size bed.94 euros a nite. Wonderful view of the Loire River. We booked for dinner for our two nite stay. Definitely worth the money. The portion is big, better be hungry when you come down for dinner.Don't want to waste the exquisitely prepared and delicious 3 course dinner service.The wine list is great too. The waiters are attentive and speaks very good English. 30-36 euro per person. Locals comes here too.
The surroundings of the hotel are so relaxing. The Loire River is next door. We had a long walk one morning. Visit the little town. Very friendly lady at the grocery shop. The church nearby is open for visit. Wonderful. Wish we can stay longer. Don't be put off by the lady at the reception. She refilled my hot water flask without fuss and had a little chat with my fiancee.

My partner and I stopped after a long drive at this lovely looking hotel. We were looking forward to some good French wine on the terrace and a well cooked evening meal. The receptionist made us feel so unwelcome that we decided to walk out and seek a more friendly atmosphere which we found in Beaugency.

Having stayed here often on business the family demanded a visit.....so with a little trepidation we introduced 2 almost teens to this traditionally elegant hotel on the banks of the Loire. The children practised their French skills and the owners and their team were gracious and welcoming. The family suite was huge and dinner was (as always) superb - and the Maitre D' was kind enough to make a small alteration to one dish to accommodate our 12 year old; who is still talking about her dessert after 6 weeks.........I suspect the size of the chocolate creation grows each time she tells her friends, but it looked pretty impressive on the table too!

For an elegant, peaceful gourmet evening on the banks of the Loire, try a few words of French and be welcome

Very good hotel right on the banks of the Loire river. Rooms have been sympathetically modernised, but the bathroom could have done with a make-over as it was rather 1970's looking (though clean). Great food, with attentive service (even on arrival and departure).

Room Tip: Some rooms have river views, some look over the front driveway. The hotel is approx 100m from the ma...

On our way back to Holland, we decided to stay here again. After we did the same a couple of years ago. The location right along the Loire is superb. The reception at the desk could be a little friendlier and helpful, but that's the only setback. The staff in the restaurant and terrace is friendly and professional. The kitchen tries too much to do it's best and the combinations are not always a success. Breakfast is okay. Bathroom out-dated. Having a drink in the courtyard is very relaxing. Even though I write a little bit critical, I do recommend it!

This is probably the best hotel we have stayed in during our trips to France. This was our 5th visit to the hotel in 19 years and the best so far. The attention to detail is fantastic and the food is just brilliant - try the 34 euro menu, I defy anyone to find better value.
Madame and Monsieur Abel are quite reserved and appear not to speak English, but respond well when you converse with them - they are perfectionists and don't go in for small talk, and that's fine.
Put this together with the most beautiful location, terrace restaurant and a stone's throw to the chateaux of the Loire, perfection.
