Property condition



Hotel is in a good location with surprisingly short walks to the key sights. Parking opposite. Before market day advised by staff to move the car to a different section of the car park. Room adequate and clean. Fan to keep the room cool. Food in the restaurant OK. Pleasant to dine/drink on the terrace opposite. Only tried breakfast on day 1 and decided on day 2 to try elsewhere.

Pros: Helpful on reception. Pleasant terrace to dine and have drinks. Car parking in the large car park opposite free of charge. Easy access to sights.

this is a nice hotel, clean, good breakfast. In the center of Chinon. However room was quite small and it was on the second floor (which is really the third) where we had to lug our luggage to, as there is no elevator. Good for young people on a budget.

Nice hotel

Very welcoming hotel. The staff was warm and friendly and the rooms are clean. It’s in an excellent location with a good restaurant next door, pharmacy on the corner, post office a few doors down walking distance to all of the sights and and free parking across the street. The breakfast was good value also.
