Reviewed 22 October 2013

Although it's an old hotel with tiny elevator and sort of funky rooms. Our room was very large and they even put in a tea pot for us for tea in the mornings.
Breakfasts a bit weak so we skipped them.
Very helpful staff and above all great location and great value

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

I stayed at Hotel France et de Guise in early mid September. My room was located on the top floor at the front of the Hotel and it was extremely spacious. The facilities were excellent although a little dated, however the location and assistance from the staff made up for any minor qualms (a creaky floor). The breakfast was thoroughly filling and the wait staff were extremely polite and accommodating. The hotel concierge recommended an amazing restaurant in Blois "Au Coin d'Table" and the location of the hotel is just a short walk from the train station with views of the Royal Palace and Cathedral. Thank you for making our stay as comfortable as possible!

Friendly and helpful receptionist and breakfast room staff, and good location, but that's as far as it goes. Unbelievably, on arrival we found the toilet in our bathroom had been used (and I mean 'used'!) and left unflushed, let alone uncleaned. Very run down hotel, dismal and smells dirty. If you like windows open at night, be prepared for a sleepless night as it is on a busy road with lots of traffic noise. Our bathroom was awful, with a shower so small my husband could hardly move in it. Carpets dirty and stained, paint chipped everywhere - just felt very grubby. Breakfast just adequate, with lukewarm tea and coffee. However, sheets and towels clean, and bed comfortable. Would definitely not recommend and would never stay again.

We feel very sorry that you did not find the standard of hotel that you expected.

The day of your departure, when you informed us about the toilets " used", our plomber came and repaired the disfunctionment.

Regarding the noise in the street, we are located downtown. Most of our clients want a room looking over the casttle but those who prefer quiet room have the possiblity to mention it when they book.

We notice that you appreciate our good location, staff and services. We keep on renovating our rooms every wiinter.

We do apologize for the disagreement.

Lovely character hotel, we asked for a room away from the street which was very quiet. We came by train with our bikes, just rolled down the hill and there is was. Nice big garage for bike storage. Staff are really helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome.

Room Tip: If you want a good nights sleep ask for a room facing away from the street.

We were on the 3rd floor – room 33 overlooking the street as we had requested. Stayed here 2 nights recently. Can be somewhat noisy at night with the window open but we had a good view of the castle and the church in the park across the street. Bed was small but okay. In an older building, nothing fancy but more than adequate for people on vacation. Had breakfast in the hotel both mornings – typical French fare and good. The staff in the breakfast room and front desk were very friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend this place.

On first seeing our room I was disappointed, it was on the top floor, very small and dated. That said the bed was comfy, sheets, towels crisp and fresh and we looked onto the Chateaux. It's in a great position for exploring Blois and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.

If you are looking for smart decoration and luxury then this isn't for you but if you want a warm, friendly hotel in a great position then it offers value for money.

We stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the old but charming interior with its different facets. The staff were very friendly and gave us amap and marked the best places to dine. Breakfast was typically French, nice.
