Stayed here on the way back from a trip to Montrichard, having gone through the town on the way down and decided it was well worth a visit. Very picturesque town, the hotel is slightly away from the main town and consequently quieter.
There is no parking at the hotel, but plenty available outside or in the medieval square nearby. Although parking costs Euros 8 a day, you are only charged for the actual time in the parking period 0900-1900. So, if you arrive at say 1830 and want to leave at 1000 the next morning you can pay for 1.5 hrs and your ticket comes out valid until 1000 the next day. Great system, none of this rushing out before 0900 hrs to feed the meter, like you have to in Britain!
We were made very welcome by the owners (and the dog & cat); the hotel room was clean, comfortable and everything worked, including the Wifi. Nice touches are bottled water, tea facilities and decent toiletries in the room. We didn't eat at the hotel having had a large lunch before arriving, so had a light meal elsewhere.
However, based on the breakfast, we wished we had ; it is by far the best breakfast buffet in France and well worth Euros 11. There is everything you could wish for; cereals, eggs, various cold cuts (meat & fish) & cheeses, homemade pate, rillettes, fresh fruit/salad, various croissants & breads (savoury & sweet) and various hot & cold drinks.
Considering the pitiful fare (croissant, baguette & jam) that we had in other hotels for 9 or 10 Euros, this was incredible value and the quality was superb!
We will be staying again next trip to France and this time will try the evening meal! And definitely have the breakfast again!!
