Mercure Bords de Loire Saumur
Ranked #5 of 24 Hotels in Saumur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2010

This is a typical Mercure hotel. Clean, comfortable, a good breakfast and well located. Although across the river from the town and its many restaurants it is nevertheless well placed being in a quiet spot on the banks of the Loire and about 10 to 15 minutes stroll into the town centre. Parking on the streets outside and around the hotel seems easy. Good value.

A lovely hotel in a superb location. Saumur is an excellent centre for Loire touring, & this hotel is perfect. It is situated on the central 'island' between the two parts of the Loire, & an easy stroll over the bridge into the historic centre. Make sure that you book the river & chateau view rooms, as these are well worth the extra for a stunning view. Excellent modern rooms, superb breakfasts (with the view!), free outdoor parking just outside (or pay for garage parking). No restaurant, but its only 10 minutes stroll into town.
The only downside is that they charge for internet use. Otherwise highly recommended.

This hotel is modern and comfortable with all the amenities you could hope for. Since it's on the Loire River, every room has a fantastic view of Chateau Saumur and the village. The only nit I would pick is that, for the visitor, the hotel is tucked away on a back road and somewhat hard to find. But the comfort, decor and amenities more than make up for that.

My husband and I spent just 1 night at Mercure Saumur and we loved it! We stayed at room 229 which has a great view from Loire River and Saumur Castle. The room is very clean and big enough. It has a Plasma TV, air conditioning, very good bed, great shower and a place to heat the towels. It´s just for one night, but it´s perfect!

This hotel is in a beautiful location right on the Loire river and I would hightly reccomend paying the extra 10 or so euros to get a room that overlooks the river and chateau. The rooms on the other side are not so nice.

We were given a twin bedded room which was clean and comfortable but a little dated.

The Dining Room looked beautiful overlooking the river, however, we were told that they didn't serve evening meals to individuals only to large parties. We couldn't even get a drink from the bar. It was a 10 minute walk across the bridge to the town centre which has lots of nice restaurants so we were fed well.

A good hotel but I wouldn't want to stay more than one night!.

Turned up without a reservation and were given average rooms, in need of redecoration, with terrible(ish) bathrooms. Reception not very friendly. Lovely view of the river & castle.
Only one (very small) elevator - sometimes you're waiting quite a while to find it's full.
No restaurant (when we were there) except for breakfast (which we did not have).
Were sold a parking space in their indoor carpark - this was so cramped that it took 4 people (incl. driver) to manoevre a mid-size car (Volvo C70) into the right spot.... At checkout the receptionist had all sorts of charges (incl. breakfasts for 4 people on 2 days) which we had not had...... taken off, but no hint of an apology whatsoever.
Recommendation - if staying in this lovely town, shop around - there are plenty of other hotels and you should be able to do considerably better in terms of value for money. If you don't find a better (value for money) place, then this place is ok if you're willing to accept its shortcomings.

Excellent location and friendly / helpful staff. Room with direct view over the river was well appointed. The only drawback was lack of air-conditioning or even a fan. Ok we were in the middle of a heatwave but the room temperature was unbearable.
