We stayed here for 3 nights The hotel is actually in Saint-Thibault, rather than is Saint-Satur, and on the banks of the Loire. Having said that, the views are not that fantastic as there is a restaurant across the street on the river bank which obscures the river from the ground floor rooms, and there is a modern concrete bridge over the Loire to the right as you look out. Having said that, the view from the first floor rooms is certainly better than looking across a street at another building opposite!
The rooms are excellent. We peeked into several in addition to our own (the doors were left open) and they were all quite large. The are well decorated and nicely furnished but have retained that indefinable but essential charm of an old building. We had bags of drawer and hanging space in lovely old furniture. The bathroom was modern, immaculately clean with a decent over-bath shower behind a glass screen. (Why do some hotels insist on using curtains? They show wear and age quickly and are much less effective at containing the water.)
The owners are friendly and courteous and gave us a fantastic recommendatoin for Pouilly Fume wine - Domaine Bonnard near Le Bouchot. There is free wi-fi, and you can borrow DVD's to play in your room if you want. (Nor sure why you would in such a beautiful area, but it's there if you want it....)
There is no restaurant, but there are 4 within 300 mtrs. We would recommend Auberge Thibault. Breakfast is the normal self-service with everything you could want, including excellent home-made confitures.
There is some limited secure parking to the rear at a reasonable €5 per night, but plenty free parking to the front of the hotel as well.(We had over 30 cases of wine in the boot, hence the secure parking. . .)
Overall, a very good family hotel, with excellent owner-proprietors. We would certainly stay here again, and probably will as we are addicted to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume wines and love the whole area.
