“Good, Unique Hotel”
Reviewed 12 October 2008

The hotel is quiet, clean, and well-located, less than a ten-minute walk to the Chateau, the main shopping area, and good restaurants. We had a room that was huge by French standards, and for a moderate price, with a nice view of the Loire. There is no elevator, and rooms are accessible only by a narrow stairway. The hotel staff was civil, but not as friendly or helpful as in other French hotels. They never volunteered to assist me with luggage, for example, but when I asked about parking in the vicinity I was given full information. A free but slow Internet connection is available on the top floor, but there are no safes in the rooms, which I have come to think of as standard equipment. I found the restaurant to be decent, but not as good as others in the area.

  • Liked — Value for the money
  • Disliked — Rooms lacked safes, the staff was cool and reserved in its interactions with guests.

We booked a room in this hotel based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not in the least dissappointed. The hotel is conveniently located in the city centre, but in its quieter part, so - no noise. The room (the cheapest one) was small, but cosy, clean and comfortable. The staff very welcoming and friendly. If you stay there, you should definitely try their restaurant: it's excellent (reserve in advance). In short, a great place to stay.

The hotel is located on the banks of the Loire and within 5 minutes stroll to the city centre. The owners are very welcoming and friendly and were more than pleased to help us out with recommending some nearby restaurants. The rooms are cosy, but not too small and they have maximised the space available to them by paying attention to the details. I'd heartily recommend going to one of the evening lightshows in the chateaux nearby if you're there in summer, it was one of the highlights of our trip. The continental breakfast (€8 not included) was good if you're short of time, otherwise there are plenty of bakeries and places to go for a coffee which are better value

Great little hotel that has been in the family for generations. Our hosts took good care of us and we had a lovely room facing the river.

The room was large, clean, comfortable and quiet. What more can you ask for?

Blois is a really sweet little town with enough to see and do in between drives to nearby castles such as Chambord and Cheverny.

Originally built in the 12th century, this auberge is charming, convenient and clean. Our room (#7) was huge in comparison to some of the hotels we had been in. It is the perfect spot for exploring Blois - something we quite enjoyed. It is also convenient if you want to rent a car and visit some of the many castles in this area of the Loire. The breakfast is plain, but good. If you dine in the restaurant you will have a fantastic meal.

This is a terrific little hotel on the banks of the Loire. Personally we didn't spend any time in Blois -- its attractions pale in comparison to the surrounding castles -- but this is a great base.

We had a room overlooking the river (well... with a small carpark and a main road in-between... see attached picture). It was spotlessly clean, large, and very modern by the standards of small-town hotels in france. From what I could tell, it's worth paying the extra for a riverview room. The small rooms in the rear seemed like they'd be more cramped.

There's a nice courtyard area where I enjoyed a beer and worked on my laptop using the hotel's free wireless internet, which is strong and reliable. The hotel is run by two guys who try their best to keep it absolutely perfect, but as a result they're busy and can seem a bit aloof. Didn't bother me much, but if you need constant attention then you might find their service lackluster.

By the way, the breakfast is very comprehensive by european standards and is well worth the price.

My only criticism might be that although the location by the river is nice, it's a little removed from the old town center and from Blois castle. It's at least a ten-minute walk to the town's bars, clubs, restaurants and cultural attractions. If you're using Blois as a base, then this hotel is perfect, quiet and quaint. But if you want to be in the heart of old Blois as a destination itself, there are probably more centrally located (but consequently smaller or more expensive) options.


P.S. By the way, a dining tip: there's a nearby restaurant called Les Banquettes Rouges where we had one of the best dinners we've ever had anywhere in France. Try it out for authentic french cuisine.

Blois was our first stop after arriving in France From Australia.
The hotel is located on a small street just beside the river, very quaint, , rooms are smallish but adequate. Their restarant served local cuisine , and was well priced and very good. Stairs to 1st floor rooms are steep, , and i think there were only about 7 or 8 rooms in total.
Couldnt fault it and it was a great start to out time in France

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.
