Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stayed two nights, rooms were great, bed very comfortable. The staff was very helpful. We liked the restaurant so much we had two dinners, both were excellent. The WiFi was free, but when the hotel was full of guests, reception was a little slow. Parking garage was very nice after we figured out how to get the gate codes. If you are travelling by train, the hotel is right next to the train station. If you plan on seeing some of the castles in the area, I highly recommend using Acco-Dispo. Their pick up spot is only two block away from the hotel. Ask for Pascal as your tour guide and driver, he was just excellent.

Hotel looked OK, rooms are small, bathroom sink needs a good clean to remove stains and shower needs fixing as it kept dropping down, the toilet kept running after flushing and TV was hard to turn on, hotel information pack needs updating to include TV instructions. Breakfast was basic and could have included hot water and coffee urns as the hot water and coffee on table was not not.

We are a family of 4 people. We traveled as a group tour of 27 members from Thailand. We stayed one night at this hotel on April 12,2014. There was no porter when we arrived. The receptionist told our tour leader that he had to inform the hotel at least half an hour before we arrived. So, we carried our own luggage.
There were two small elevators. Each could carry 4 passengers, or 3 with luggage. Our rooms were clean ,medium size, well equipped. There was no refrigerator though. In spite that we had free and strong WiFi signal, the download/upload speed was very slow. In addition, there was water leakage under the sink in my room and a lamp in our sons' room acted up. The pitfall that the hotel is close to the train station didn't bother us. All of us slept tight.
We had American breakfast in the morning. There was limited in variety. To be honest, most of our tour members didn't much enjoy this meal.

Very close to the train station of Tours. Easy to walk into town and the major sights. Comfortable and spacious rooms - but with some zooming from the electrical box in the room (they all have it they told me). Good breakfast.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel as part of a tour. Our superior room with very small balcony was on the 6th floor and was very comfortable. Unfortunately with the window shut you could still hear the trains but more annoyingly the constant announcements. On the whole this did not disturb us too much and did not go on too late.

We had instructions for a safety box but it was missng! There are 2 small lifts and with luggage they only take 4 persons each. We arrived back one evening at the same time as another party and to avoid a lengthy wait we took the stairs.

We only ate breakfast in the hotel and as a tour party this was held in a different room to the main breakfast room so we did not get all of the options but it was fine.

Room Tip: Suggest go for a higher room to avoid the train/announcement noise but beware the lifts are very sma...

We spent 3 nights here as a base for a tour of the Loire Valley. The hotel is on quite a busy road next to the railway station but the room was very quiet with the windows closed. Our room was a good size, clean and comfortable with excellent air conditioning and breakfast was good. There are plenty of places to eat close to the hotel but it is worth the 10-15 minute walk into the charming old town where there is a better choice. The hotel is only a short stroll from the main shopping area.

Room Tip: Rooms on the road side may be quieter than those overlooking the station.
