Looks can be deceiving, so don't be fooled into thinking this hotel is mediocre when viewing from the outside after circling for parking for a while. Once you go in, you are welcomed warmly and can feel the history of this building's hundreds of years as a guest house. Our room was up a narrow set of stairs, spacious and facing the river. The linens, furniture and slightly musty odor made me feel like we were staying at my great aunt's house. After opening the window that looks the the river and the skylight window in the comfortable bathroom, suddenly we realized we had found a gem. I like staying in someone's home, and you will feel that you are a values guest here. The ratings are there for a reason!
We walked around town and found that Blois was bigger than what we had anticipated and after days in Paris we were looking for smaller town experiences. We had pre-arranged dinner at the auberge and found the presentation to be outstanding, and the food was absolutely delicious. Skillfully prepared, lovely sauces and a wide range of choices for a small establishment. We had not decided on whether we would have breakfast there the next day - after our first course at dinner, we told our waiter to please put us on the list for breakfast!
This auberge gave us that small town experience we were searching for while in a city. Recommended!
- 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
