“Excellent choice for a young family”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

We found the staff here to be extremely friendly and helpful, particularly in the restaurant where we ate our first two courses with our toddler daughter then left the table to put her to bed and returned for our dessert. The maitre d' was more than happy for us to do this, clearing the dirty plates and leaving the wine. Travel cot provided free, reasonable sized room for this type of hotel. The pool was lovely, fast free wifi. Loads of information provided in reception, clean safe parking, 5 minutes walk from the city centre. They do a reduced price breakfast in the bar which was very good. Not a special treat place, but excellent for what we wanted.

The hotel is located in Blous, on the main street and it's few minutes of walk from restaurants and shops, plus you have the advantage of having the Chateaux de Blois behind your hotel room.
The hotel is a good three stars, we got the superior suite on two floors which was nice and quite. The breakfast was nice and with a good assortment of pastries, yogurts and eggs. The coffe expresso was very good but the water for the tea was not hot (never...) and the American coffe HORRIBLE.
The only negative aspect of the hotel is the housekeeping service, we got the best suite of the hotel and the girl was barely cleaning the bed ... Very disappointed about that.
The reception service was wonderful, they provided us information in French but also in English and ItLian.
The garage is perfect, located underground has also karts to bring your luggages straight to the elevator from your car.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, take the suite on two floors, it's amazing and very spacious for a family.

We booked direct with the Hotel and received instant confirmation. We paid 74E per night for a superior room without breakfast. The standard rate was about 164E, we booked when a special was offered. We would not have stayed unless the rate was substantially discounted. The room for our two night stay was room 464, top floor at the rear of the Hotel and very quiet. The room was large, with a spacious bathroom. Two bottles of mineral water were provided in the small bar fridge a nice touch, but the fridge was not operational. A major complainant was that the bed was very very firm, made sleeping difficult. Certainly the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The other issue is why bar Skype. In this age of modern technology with travellers wanting to keep in contact with friends and family why bar the usage of Skype. Well to ring by the Skype to home for 2.5 minutes would cost about 5 cents, to use the Hotels phone would cost about 8 euros. There appeared to be a server authorised by the Hotel that would allow you to use Skype at over ten times the cost of Skype. The Accor group should look at this outdated policy, which is not referred to on the Hotels web site.
The Hotel was a five minutes’ walk to the CBD of Blois, good free parking opposite. The Hotel had an indoor pool and spa which we did not utilise.
Overall apart from the Skype issue, firm bed, if you can book at a discounted price its ok and for those reasons have rated it average.

Room Tip: We are a member of the Accor Club, its free to join and serveral times a year they offer very good s...

Very good hotel and a very good base for the chateaux. A short walk takes you to Blois castle. Safe parking under hotel but limited spaces. Wifi of good Quality and free. Had breakfast each morning as part of rate and was good. Breakfast staff a bit odd ... disinterested is probably the best way to describe them. Room spacious with Fridge. Room clean but not spotless. Had to wipe out fridge before used it. Air conditioning was not great. Receptionists very helpful.

A very fine location and a well driven hotel with all you needs for a city break. They have a closed parking lot which is a safe thing for you, when you have your car filled with luggage and other stuffs.

Rooms are superb and extremely well finished.
Only thing that lets this hotel down is the apparent disinterest of the staff. though not outright rude they are definitely approaching it. Would not stay here again

This hotel is just a bit farther from the center of town than we had hoped, but still an easy short walk along the quai to town. Hallways and rooms are quite spacious (relative to other French hotels), in-room coffee pot and refrigerator were convenient. Computer in lobby was useful since wireless didn't want to work with our laptop. Front desk very friendly and helpful.
