The hotel consists of rooms, suites and studios in a complex of converted farm buildings. The setting is very beautiful and rural, but only about five minutes drive from the nearby town of Bauge, where good food and drink can be found. Our room was spacious and comfortable, I would be very happy to return to the Logis de Poellier in the future.
But, beware, the hotel has no bar, so pack a six-pack if you want to sit in the garden listening to the wildlife and watching the sun go down !
The St Paul is a commercial hotel, in the sense that it caters for unpretentious business people as well as tourists - but note, while its facilities are modest and its position on a main road not exactly scenic, it has a really excellent restaurant. The proprietors are welcoming and multi-lingual. The location - about six km out of Saumur - is extremely convenient. The surrounding countryside is charming and rural. It has a pool and a pleasant garden. The village of Vivy itself has very little to offer and is dominated by the main highway.
The hotel also costs peanuts, though it would be worth the few euros extra to upgrade to one of the superior rooms, which are at the back and away from the traffic.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke excellent English and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble.
The rooms could have done with a kettle in the room as standard, but we emailed in advance asking if this was possible and it was supplied without question.
The extra level in the room accessed via stairs provided privacy and additional space for our daughter. Unusually for many French hotels, the room could accommodate 4 people rather than three.

We had the two teenage boys with us, so we're surprised to be put in a disabled room with disabled facilities (the bathroom resembled a hospital bathroom). The beds were not adequate with my husband who is 6'2 and myself having the two single beds, the boys refused to share the queen sized badly worn bed, therefore one of my sons slept on the floor.
The restaurant food was very good but extremely expensive. As we arrived around 10pm there was no choice but to eat in the dining room. The breakfast was absolutely superb however, very nice and I think fairly reasonably priced for the type of buffet food offered.

With no local eatery, the cheap room rate lost its appeal. The restaurant is very expensive, for mediocre food and €9.50 for a French Breakfast?! Otherwise, the hotel is fine. Eat elswhere, or bring sandwiches!
