“A lovely, friendly little hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2010

We stayed for one night only, on our way from the Dordogne to Normandy. Found the hotel easily and were delighted by its location ...by the river, but across the river from the main town. Superb views of the fortress from the bridge, especially at night.
The room was clean and comfortable and value for money. Lovely bathroom and excellent shower.
The owners were very friendly and served an excellent breakfast.
As for the town itself, it has a network of tiny cobbled streets and cool, shady squares.Not difficult to imagine medieval Chinon, even today. Had a fabulous dinner on the terrace of the Hotel Gargantua, with the towers of the fortress looming over us. Wonderful, well cooked food and wine, both very good value for money. Friendly and relaxed service in a delightul location.

Stayed for two nights - small recently, refurbished (or converted into) hotel - everything clean and with up to date facilities. I can't comment on prices as it was part of a cycling holiday. Can't recommend highly enough.
Location - Ideal - about 5 mins walk from the centre on the opposite side of the Vienne.
Room - Clean bright, comfortable and well appointed bathroom.
Breakfast - Not a buffet - you get served croissant, baguette, juice & coffee - help yourself to cereals, yoghurts - however, excellent, fresh food.
Staff - The couple who run the hotel are very friendly - not much else to say given our two-night stay.
