This is a little gem of a place. I had the feeling there used to be more rooms but now there are just 4. They are extremely clean, the bathrooms particularly - which is what you want. Basically but perfectly adequately furnished. From the picture I thought it was by the river and was hoping for a river view but it's in a little street parallel to the river so just a stone's throw away. I think a more modern telly would be nice, and not quite so high up the wall, but it's not important. Also, a kettle and some tea and coffee etc is something that seems to have gone from some French hotels which is a shame. The restaurant downstairs has fabulous traditional fine French food. We thought it was overpriced but on peering at menus in other restaurants it was comparable. The breakfast was overpriced I think, and had it not been raining when we arrived we might not have opted to have it. However, all in all a place to watch out for and Chinon is a beautiful little town.
