“Needs sorting out”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

Booked on line and arrived expecting wifi connection along with our accommodation.No such luck! Unable to get any connection despite some help at reception.We were in a suite for 85€ so value good but we were told we were unable to cook there despite the kitchenette with some equipment.Generally understaffed for the size of the complex and a general feel of malaise around the place.Flash entry hall but poor landscaping and we could not park near our unit exept when downloading luggage.Schlepping 1 k to a unit is not funny.Luckily weather was good otherwise the place would have been a quagmire and it would have been a complete disaster.
Bed excellent queen size and bathroom Ok however unit had a stale old cheese smell while apparently clean,tried to find the source.No154)Decor good and we had a good sleep.This place needs a cash injection to plant trees and employ more staff.
Generally would not recommend unless desperate

I booked one night for a transit stop in the region. The unit itself was well decorated and furnished to NA standards. However, we were shocked to find out the kitchen cabinets were empty - no pots and pans, no plates, no glass, no silverware. When I asked the front desk, I was told that I had booked a unit without these supplies. I had to pay 30 Euro extra for one that had, and had to move to another unit. Even though it was still worthwhile to pay the extra (it was almost a must, since you are in the middle of a wilderness, where prepared food is not a walk away), it was the surprise and inconvenience that I did not appreciate.

We use this hotel for a good value overnight stop, on our way to the South West of France. This year we paid under £80 per night for a lovely big apartment for a family of four. The landscaping is pretty bare around the apartments, hence the low price. But the rooms themselves are spacious, clean and airy. We found the beds very comfortable, and could open the windows on a hot night. They have small kitchenettes with a microwave oven & fridge , but my advice is to take your own crockery and cutlery, as its non existent! My children enjoyed using the small onsite swimming pool, and my husband found that the service was good in the bar. There was one particular chap on reception who was charming (wish I had noted his name!)

Key things to know: no air conditioning, weak internet reception unless you are in the reception area. Small pool with about eight chairs for a complex of some 800 units.Tiny units. These are apartments with small kitchens, well stocked with dishes, utensils, pots & pans, but no soap. There are no instruction or welcome booklet to explain TV (no DVD player, French language only channels), the microwave or the heating system. Meteor Val de Loire Resort was our default choice when we arrived at the Tourist Info office late on the beginning of a four day French holiday, with no reservations to any hotel. We were told everything else in town was full except this it was a “three star” hotel just out of town. The reception was competent and professional, but we were given a unit at the far end of the complex, and told we were not allowed to park by it, but that it was OK to drop off. In fact, the unit was nearly 1/4 mile from the reception desk. We soon realized that the place was operating on a small staff, and like our neighbors, ignored the no parking rule and parked on the gravel in front of our place. Apparently the place has been open only a short time and it appears the developer either ran out of money or cut corners in an effort to maximize profit. The place has a very unfinished look, with zero landscaping. The ground floor units have sliding glass doors that open to...grass, as the developer forgot to pour concrete patios! The second story units have balconies, but no balcony furniture. Furniture in the rooms is too big and too many given the tiny size of the units. My wife and I had no place to open our suitcases, and were continually bumping into one another.
Just to complete the impression that the people who built this place have none of the grace and artistry for which France is famous, they apparently leveled a woods and filled in a wetland to create this ugly monster. Just enough wetland was left (about 75 feet in circumference in the middle of the complex) to permit loud frogs to keep you awake at night if you unlucky enough to have a unit facing this area (remember no air conditioning means open windows...which, by the way, have no screens!!!

Room Tip: Demand a room close to reception building

we stayed here for 3 nights on a trip to the loire , we also took our dog , i had to ask if we were the only guests as the place was pretty deserted , you get your own s/c apartment , very high quality , big screen telly , kitchen , dining table and flip out sofa bed . the place isnt finished and you cant park near your room , had to 'borrow ' some cutlery from the restaurant . It is a resort rather than a hotel big sprawling place and the staff use golf cars to get around . didnt eat in the restaurant because it was too expensive , but had a few drinks in the bar , which is massive , with a small play area with pinball at the far end , i would say to stay here as all in all it is a good place to stay , 5 star if you can overlook the lack of landscaping , the 'apartment' was spot on . Excellent Value .

My wife and I recently spent seven nights at the Meteor Val de Loire Resort and while the accommodation has no true French character and consist of a range of modern cottages situated in plain unlandscaped grassland it is still good value accommodation.

We took one of the resorts two person studios at a cost of 53 Euros a night and at that price this equates to excellent value modern self contained accommodation.

Our apartment included a fully equipped kitchen, inclusive of all necessary kitchen items, was suitably spacious and pleasantly quiet. To our amazement our towels were changed every day, our rubbish removed and the apartment swept a level of service which we had not expect for self contained accommodation.

Although the resorts reception lists limited opening hours we found the reception to be staffed each time we sought assistance. We also found that the reception staff spoke excellent English and were helpful and friendly.

A new resort, still being constructed. Comprises separate 4-unit villas and main restaurant/conference centre. Villas are 2 years old, main area completed April 2010. Apartments nice and spacious. All beds are singles, only 2'6" wide. Toilet separate from bathroom. Has cooking facilities, crockery and cutlery, fridge. However, you have to park well away and drag cases along dusty roads and paths - don't know why some extra money wasn't spent on paving. WiFi available for 3 Euros, but it drops out after only a couples of minutes of inactivity . And reception is only open for limited hours. Nice breakfast served in restaurant. Good value for money, especially if you stay for a few days and BYO everything. But not a great choice for 1-2 nights.
