Let me start by saying that Philippe is the perfect host: friendly, knowledgable, but not overly familiar. I should also say that I just loved breakfast every morning: the choice of items was superb, the quality top-notch and the setting impeccable. The house itself is also a treasure, with beautiful wooden beams and antique furniture.

The room, however, was very uncomfortable. I had the Rose room, I believe that the Blue one is similar, but the larger suite on the top floor may be a very different story.

The Rose room is small, which is usual in France. It has a bizarre low door, which is inconvenient but I could live with it. But it had no desk, no chair (there's one armchair tuck in the corner), and worst of all, no storage space at all. There is no place to put your luggage, apart from on the floor; and no place to store your clothes, simply nothing (there is one cabinet with a few drawers, but they were filled with blankets and pillows).

My room was serviced every day. This included making the bed and cleaning the bathroom, but not replacing the towels or emptying the trash can.

Au 16 is on Place Saint Louis, opposite the cathedral. Philippe was very welcoming and the room fine – the house is elegant and packed with antiques. You do need to be fit – it’s above the town and tracing the alleyways of the old quarter does mean going up and down a lot! A stunning breakfast in the beautiful dining room - coffee in jugs was good, the croissants and baguettes fresh, the preserves lovely. Orange juice, ripe melon, pancakes and maple syrup delicious. We didn’t alas have room for the honey cakes, the cereal, yoghurt, cheese and ham! When Philippe heard we were planning to visit Chambord he dashed off and returned with a voucher for a reduction “Enough for a coffee!” he said. a great welcome. oh - and he recommended and booked us an excellent restaurant, Le Bistrot Du Cuisinier - i'd recommend that too as i do Au 16. i only didn't give him five stars because the room isn't the largest and the hills are steep - i was suffering a back problem and felt them! but the welcome and the breakfast and Philippe himself are 5 star.

Room tip: we had Bleu de Loire - lovely decor but not the largest room but then this is an old, narrow old house! for one night i'd trade space for delight...

We stayed in Bleu de Loire. It was clean, but a bit small for two nights, with very limited space for luggage or to hang clothes. Phillipe was a gracious host and spoke excellent English. His breakfast in the morning was abundant--ham, cheese, yogurt, fruit, breads, juice, coffee. He gave us discount coupons for touring Chenonceau and Chambord, very much appreciated, and he made reservations for us at an excellent restaurant (Le Bistrot du Cuisinier) across the river. The B&B is located right next to the cathedral and is an easy walk down to the historic center. Parking is free in the church lot overnight (6pm-9am). Be careful if you're using a Garmin--ours took us up a narrow pedestrian-only street, a bit harrowing to say the least.

My wife and I stayed at Phillipe's BB in mid-Sept at the beginning of a cycling trip. We really felt that Phillipe went the extra mile to help us start off well, right down to labeling our suitcases to make sure the luggage transfer went smoothly.
Couldn't agree more with the other reviews regarding breakfast - definitely the best of our trip in the Loire Valley. His recommendation to eat at the Bistrot du Cuisinier was spot on as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay with Philippe in the Bleu de Loire room. His recommendation and booking a table for le bistrot du Cuisinier was much appreciated. The parking across the road after hours was free, but then remember to move your car to avoid paying metered parking. This place is a handy walk to everything and we recommend the hosts welcoming, and unobtrusive approach.
