Saint Jacques
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Chinon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2012

We have just returned from 5 nights. The owners Catherine and Jacques are very welcoming and only too pleased to help with suggestions of places to visit and to make reservations if wanted. The hotel is well situated for visiting the Loire Valley. It is situated on the south bank of the Vienne and it was nice to cross over to Chinon to eat in the evening.
The room we had was a the back away from a busy road. There is parking but only for 6 cars. The room was adequate with a modern bathroom. Everywhere was very clean and well maintained. Breakfast had a good variety of food and is in nice surroundings.
The only criticism is that whilst there is wifi it is only available in the dining room.
We would certainly recommend the hotel both for price and position.

Room Tip: Ask for room in annexe not main building.

This hotel is great! The couple running it work hard to make you comfortable. The breakfast was fine, better than many others we have tried on this trip. The rooms may be small, but they are clean and the bathrooms are modernized.

Our room was a good size and looked out towards some quaint old stone buildings. Everything in the hotel was clean and pleasant. The bathroom included a hair dryer which I had not expected. I found the bed a little hard but manageable. Free wifi, though I did find I needed to connect, disconnect and reboot two or three times before getting a usable connection. The owners were friendly but not intrusive. I would describe this establishment as a good B & B rather than a hotel. We enjoyed our stay.

St Jacques is a small hotel run by Catherine and Jacques. Very friendly, showed us all the restaurants in the town. Our room was 3rd floor, no elevator so pack light, or bring a husband :). Average size room but space well used, not cramped. No aircon but a fan was sufficient in September. Flatscreen tv with lots of French channels, desk and 2 chairs, hanging space etc. Modern bathroom, ours had a beam through the middle to support the roof but this added to the charm. Quiet hotel, would stay here again.

We spend one night at the St-Jacques which is located on the other side of the river where most of the Chinon attractions are, just a 5 minute walk away. It was very clean, modern and more North American than other places we stayed at. Parking is very limited and tight; make sure you have a small car.
Great for a quick layover.

The couple running this small hotel were lovely and extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice, nothing to complain about. It was around the corner from the river, very central and in a beautiful town!!

The "Hotel St. Jacques" was our base for exploring this region of France. It is a familiar hotel operated by its owners. A very nice couple who helped us by giving several tourist information. The hotel has 3 floors, rooms with private bathroom, heating and tv. It has a spacious parking (free). Very good breakfast in a beautiful environment. The hotel is located near the river, across the city in a very quiet place.
An ideal hotel for those wanting to visit the region.
