Reviewed 17 July 2014

Stayed for two nights room only. Room was clean but toilet in corner of room and bathroom in another room was not a good feature. Hotel is a 2 star but location for price was excellent, i.e in the old part of town next to a couple of excellent budget restaurants. Better hotels outside town but to enjoy old part of town, Cristal was fine.

Room Tip: Careful of rooms that are on third floor, no lift and dark narrow staircase.

We stayed here for one night during a road trip through France. Great little hotel. Friendly staff and cosy room. It's a little on the small side but the location is great and overlooks the river. The only negative is that there is no air con so at night the room got hot. Other than that great value for money!

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking for river. There are no lifts so if you have luggage ask for a room on th...

Very beatuifully located at the Loire. Clean and silence. Acceptable breakfast for being in France. Very narrow stears, so if you have luggage and are weak perhaps it´s problem.
Easy to find free parking near the hotel.

Room Tip: No elevator, but if you are strong, take room some storeys up and with view over the Loire.

This is a very good hotel in the heart of Saumur on the Loire. The staff is courteous, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very clean and supply all the neccesities in the bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable and they have great views on the Loire.
The staff is very helpful in providing directions, suggestions or any other information required.
The breakfasts are plentiful and nourishing and the atmosphere is relaxed.
The young owners M. and Mme Omer are the very best at this and have instilled a sense od duty in their staff.
A very good place to stay and visit in Saumur and the Châteaux around and excellent value for your Euros.

Room Tip: Excellent value for your Euros!

Stayed for one night, the lady at the desk was very friendly we as checked in sooner than expected our room was already made up. Small stairs to the rooms no elevator I can image a hussle with bigger suitcases. The room was renewed and very clean but rooms on the backside have a 'vue sur toit' (view on the roofs/wall). Rooms are well equiped with lcd-tv, coffee/tea bar and modern furniture/design accents. The Bed was a smaller size and quite hard. A bit noisy also in the room because of thin walls but not disturbing. Bathroom very small one sink and a shower but then again clean. Location is on the other hand is excellent placed right in the centre and just steps form the Loire, if you don't bother the parking in front. Weather was extraordinary with almost 20C and not a cloud in sight for early March! Overall a sufficient experience and certainly good value for money. Had diner in the restaurant also good but not excellent wines on the other hand are delicious, the region around Saumur produce some superb wines and sparkling wines.

The Cristal has been refurbished since my last visit,it is now part of the Logis chain. We had a room on the first floor with a view of the River Loire. The room was OK, clearly distressed furniture, but the lighting was extremely poor. Stairs narrow. Pillows lumpy. Car park outside free for 1900 to 0900.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Loire are noisy.

Three of us had a meal at this restaurant. We opted for the a la carte menu but waited ages for the waiter to take our order, first for drinks and then for the meal. We asked for a jug of tap water along with a bottle of wine, but were given a bottle of Evian for which we were charged 5.80 euros! I opted for the mussels with pommes frites; the mussels arrived but no chips. When I pointed it out to the waitress, I was given some pale coloured fries that hardly resembled chips. The penne with prawns that my son had was mainly penne in a sauce and few prawns. My wife also had a poor meal. There is only one toilet in this large restaurant and there was no soap at all. Service is slow, the food is poor and the prices are unreasonably high for the standard of food.
My advice is give this restaurant a miss - it is terrible and a total rip off!
