This hotel has recently changed hands and, judging from previous reviews, I would say that the new owner is making a positive difference.
The hotel is close to the main roads and easily accessible from them, but is also very close in to the village of Azay Le Rideau. It means you can park your car there and go and explore locally on foot to find either the local chateau or any number of bars and restaurants some of which are very good indeed.
The room we had clean and well presented but was quite high up in the building although it had good views across the town and countryside.
The staff were really helpful - there is no on-site restaurant but as we were celebrating a special birthday they went through all the local options and booked us in to a very good gourmet restaurant 'L'Aigle D'Or'. The manager even bought us a drunk at the bar!
I would say that this is an ideal no frills hotel to stay at either for one night, or for several nights as you explore this beautiful area of France.
