Stayed here for 2 nights on the way back home from the Loire in order to visit Versailles (see separate review). Nice hotel and extremely friendly lady on reception. Our 'Grand Comfort' room was over in another building a very short walk from the main hotel itself. There is however ample parking at the main hotel which is ideal as the town's medieval streets are not conducive to cars and parking. It was actually quite nice being in a separate building as it made us feel as though we were actually staying in a private flat. The room was basically but nicely furnished with a large bathroom and view onto the little street outside. The only problem for light sleepers would be that there is absolutely no soundproofing in the building so you hear everything. The church bells might also keep some people awake although I love to hear them. The first morning we had breakfast back at the hotel. French hotels seem to have adopted the American approach of room only so breakfast was an extra 12 Euro each which for a fairly uninspiring continental style spread was a little excessive. There's a couple of boulangerie in town where you could easily grab something in the morning for a fraction of this cost. One thing to note if you are on business, the hotel has wi-fi but we found that we couldn't connect to it from the separate building we were in. The signal just wasn't strong enough.
The hotel owns a restaurant in the centre of town just up from the church - called La Place - we found it extremely expensive for what was basic French brasserie food i.e. salad/pasta starter followed by 2 main courses of meat with frites and a bottle of wine/2 glasses of kir royale and one cheese course came to about 140 Euro which is outrageous (although its our own fault for not following the general rule of going for the plat du jour option which is generally cheaper). The second night we ate a Thai/Chinese restaurant over the road called Chi-Fan which was good, had a great ambience and was much better value for money. Pleasant enough visit to what is quite a nice little town.
