“Very nice place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2012

I arrived with my wife and kids from Holland and we greeted by a very friendly staff. The room for 4, with a divder in the space was good enough for a short stay. The place is very clean, well located and the food and service in the restaurant very good. Breakfast was very nice and with fresh products

We had a very pleasant welcome and were shown our room which was small but perfectly formed, and very clean (as was the whole hotel). Being a Logis they have to reach a good standard.We ate in the restaurant, which was extremely busy (always a good sign, as the French love their food) but were somewhat disappointed after the good reviews we had read. The service was excellent, but the food didn't come up to expectations as, seemingly, not many fresh ingredients were used.

The room was very comfortable and clean, with newly refurbished toilettes. Free wi-fi, friendly staff, just off the pedestrian zone. The low point: the room was ground floor level.

I arrived fairly late in the evening and was very disappointed to check-in, take my luggage to my room and be told the kitchen was closed (without any suggestion as to where I might find some food). No tea/coffee making facility in the room either so not feeling very welcomed by this point. Comfortable night (bit of traffic noise), generous sized room and big bathroom. Breakfast was 'as usual' in France. The staff were pleasant enough and kindly held my luggage in the morning while I walked around town. Blois is an interesting town with well laid out historic walks (worth doing).

We had not booked a Hotel in Blois, but happened upon La Monarque, as we drove toward the Town Centre.
We parked the car and were welcomed by a friendly young Receptionist, who happily showed us a room that was available.
The bedroom was bright, clean and very comfortable, despite it's limited space - the shoer-room was perfectly adequate.
We checked in and had a walk around town, before deciding to go back to the Hotel for Dinner.
The Restaurant was busy but a table was found for us, by the Restaurant Supervisor, whom we felt was a little haughty, showing politeness to some but not to others. The young waitress, however, was delightful and we enjoyed a lovely, good value and typically French Dinner.
All in all a lucky find in Blois!
Blois Town Centre itself on a Saturday evening was lively and family oriented, with live traditional French music and opportunities for the locals to dance in the Square - fantastic experience!

The room was tiny with a toilet that you literally had to back in to. Teh receptionist was very rude. However, the restaurant food was superb and the staff very nice.

We thank you for your note about our hotel.
In France, the size of the rooms is normal for a 2* hotel.
We apology for the toilets and imagine that was not enjoyable.

A modern hotel - clean, comfortable and ideal for short stays. Includes a small bar and seating area. I can't comment on prices as it was part of a cycling holiday.
Location - Blois is a large town, however, the hotel is located a short walk from the centre in a reasonably quiet location.
Rooms - quite small but comfortable. The bathroom is excellent one of the best showers we’ve had.
Breakfast - Rolls and croissants were provided to the table but buffet for jam etc and drinks
Restaurant - Good food - also the restaurant was full, a large party of Italian cyclists, but the staff of 3 coped really well
Staff - All the staff were very friendly and very helpful.
