“Ideal overnight stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2008

Saumur is at the Western end of the Chateau area around the Loire. The hotel itself is located on an island and is a traditional French city building. The rooms are fairly small but comfortable. The main part of the city is about a 10 minute walk.

There is a small private and secure parking area, otherwise, parking is in the street outside, but there wasn;t much available during our stay. Basically, everything works as it should - the room was comfortable and clean and the staff friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend this hotel - just as i'd given up finding reasonably priced accomodation in France which wasn't dated and uncomfortable, along came the Adagio!

Stayed in a Prestige room - huge superking bed, flat screen tv, quiet aircon, modern decor and a huge bathroom with bath and shower. Despite being on the corner of the building, with quite busy roads on both sides, secondary double glazing kept things peaceful, and good blackout curtains ensured a good night's sleep.

Nice extras such as robes, slippers and tea & coffee making facilities are provided.

The staff were consistently lovely. There's free internet access via a terminal in reception.

You can find free parking directly outside the hotel and we never had trouble getting a space.

So in summary, everything you need for a really pleasant stay - i'd have been happy to stay in that room for a much longer break.

We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel, opting for a pastry to go from one of the nearby boulangeries.

For a lovely supper, try Le Grand Bleu on Rue du Marche - friendly service and moule frites to die for (proper double cooked chips, too!). Ask for the "sauce Jacques" on the side - delicious slightly spicy cream and shallot sauce to dip chips in!

  • Liked — Getting a great, comfortable night's sleep

We arrived here late in the evening, after a long day's drive. There were rooms available and we decided to take the Prestige room, as we were staying 2 nights. We had some wine in car at this stage and asked to stay in the secure park.
The staff at the desk were wonderful. Our room was lovely, very very big with a huge bathroom. We didn't get to breakfast either morning. We had a drink in the bar one evening and it was nice. The free internet access was a nice bonus, as was the supply of books - we assumed leftover from guests and we added ours to the pile.
When we wanted to move our car, it had been blocked in - by someone just abandoning their car. We asked at the desk and the problem was sorted in record time.
We tended to stay in Best Westerns and to use their booking ahead facility. Overall this was probably the nicest one we stayed in

Just returned from a very pleasant 2 night stay at this hotel. Although we booked their cheapest room, it still had every thing we needed, including air con, flat screen TV, and overlooked the River Loire.
The room and hotel have both been recently refurbished and are both clean and comfortable. Situated on the island in the middle of the Loire, it's no more than 5 minutes wallk from the railway station. We found it easier to approach the hotel from the railway station side of town, thus avoiding the busy town centre.
We were unable to book the secure parking, but were able park right outside the hotel, free of charge, in a quiet street, no problem at all. Considering we stayed on a Friday and Saturday night in the middle of August, it was very quiet
All in all a very pleasant experience and certainly better than previous Best Western hotels we've stayed at.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in June. We ended up there during two summer festivals. Those interested in the Loire, Saumur is an excellent choice.

This hotel is very clean and modern. The room was a suite, which was small for four. But we didn't need to spend much time in the room.

Breakfast is available and is quite good. Their is also a small bar in the lobby. Our young boys loved the pool table in the lobby. This kept them busy when we needed some rest.

The service was quite good and friendly. They all speak English.

  • Liked — Convenient to all of the Loire Valley
  • Disliked — Room size

We stopped for a night here after a five hundred mile drive up from the Pyrenees, having started out that morning. The hotel is well-situated, has secure private parking, and the rooms are pleasant, if a little bland. All was very clean, staff were friendly and helpful though the breakfast buffet could have been a little more substantial. Saumur is a very attractive small town where we spent an enjoyable evening 'winding down' before the second half of our journey back to Boulogne the next day. Our room had large external shutters which excluded all light and noise, and in our large comfortable bed we both slept like logs - just what we needed.

  • Liked — Location, comfortable bed
  • Disliked — Breakfast buffet could be a little better stoocked
