“Useful Accommodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2006

Once you become fully acquainted with it's location off the peripherique and opposite the Michelin factory, you'll find that this hotel is a good base from which to tour the Loire Valley. Accommodation was very clean, well maintained and well serviced, with air conditioning. Service standards varied dramatically when we stayed - most staff reacted rather than anticipated. Food is functional rather than enjoyable, which is a pity as it's a 30 euro taxi ride to anywhere decent. (Go to La Chope and Bistro la Tranche, both in Tours and both excellent). The indoor swimming pool is a bonus, but was always over-run by local ladies' aqua classes when we wanted to use it!

If you are planning on visiting the Loire river area for castle excursions, this is the place to stay.

It is located in the outskirts of the noisy city of Tours, on the border of a beautiful park with a lake, so when you are in need of some time to relax between wonderful, but definitely tiresome castle visits, no traffic or noise will disturb you.

On the other hand, it is almost exactly in the middle of the Loire castle region, thus you only have to divide your available time in two and travel eastward for half of the castles and westward for the other half (by the way, I had rented a car for these excursions).

Finally, the hotel has very large rooms, with comfortable beds and clean, spacious bathrooms, whereas the staff were always polite and willing to help in whichever request I may have had. As for the price, 90€ per room/night (+11€ per person/day for breakfast) may sound expensive, but it's not, concerning the comparison to other hotels and the quality of the hotel.
