“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2011

This is a typical third-rate French hotel, with tiny rooms and closet bathrooms. If you want something cheap, this hotel is for you.

Set back from the road running along the Loire, a great value auberge in Blois. Rooms are clean and bright, three course tradtional menu good quality at reasonable price (wine is expensive). Hosts are English speaking and friendly. Next door is the Musee de la Resistance and it's easy walking to the Cathedral and fabulous Saturday street market.

This was our first trip travelling in France and for us this hotel was our favourite. We stayed in a 'large room' which was spacious and had views of the Loire river. We think the only reason this hotel does not have another star is because there were no tea/coffee facilities in the room but this is because you can get a much better one downstairs. Also there was free internet access.

We ate in the hotel restaurant (which we wouldn't normally do) and the food was amazing! We were made to feel very welcome and when we return to the Loire valley this will be our base.

Thank you!!

My wife and I have stayed at the Cote Loire Auberge Ligerienne hotel every year for the last three years....It's a small and cozy little place that also serves very delicious dinners.

The management of the hotel is very kind, friendly and helpful...We are planning to return there in 2011....

Blois is a good place to stay for visiting all the Chateaux in the Loire Valley...
You can walk to the Chateau in Blois in about two minutes from the hotel...
In addition to the superb food at the hotel there are also several excellent restaurants within walking distance.....

If you stay, definitely take the half-board with breakfast and dinner. The chef is fantastic! If you are dining alone, take something to read; I had a problem with a French gentleman who insisted on trying to have a conversation with me (in French) across the restaurant. Since my French isn't great, it was very awkward. I didn't mention anything to the hotel staff and it wasn't their fault.

Completely agree with other reviews - chose it because of earlier positive listings. Yes. The small rooms are small but clean and cute and atmosphere of everything else makes up for that. We were cycling down the Loire with Blois as our base - hosts were extremely helpful with a slight problem we had with bike rental company. They acted like friends.
Summary: extremely efficient management with a deft and light touch. Choose this hotel over an anonymous chain establishment any day !

Stayed with my girlfriend and her parents. We had a slightly smaller back room with a window but no view (2nd and top floor). Parents had a 3 person room with view out onto the street and the river (also 2nd floor).
Staff were friendly and the food was good.
I chose this B&B on the strength of the positive trip adviser feedback. I would add to this positive feedback and would recommend to anyone staying in Blois.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled back from the road that follows the bank of the Loire—a five minute walk to the Blois châteaux—the Côté Loire is hidden behind foliage of the tree that shades the square. Do not judge this hotel by its two star rating. It is an intimate, 7-room hotel that was just purchased by Thierry and Laurent. With their care and attention to detail, it will soon become one of Blois’ most charming small hotels. ... more   less
