This hotel came as a real pleasant surprise. Whilst the structure of the hotel may have been old, the bedrooms and public rooms were fresh, and very attractive. I had one of my best nights sleep in a very quiet back-facing room, and had everything I needed. The front faced the Loire, across a road, but I do not believe...

We stayed 1 night whilst cycling EuroVelo6. Although the hotel was quite nice, the room was fairly basic and didn't even have tea and coffee making facilities - not even a bottle of water. The noise from the plumbing when someone flushed the toilet upstairs was horrendous. Breakfast was brilliant but very expensive - more than we'd paid anywhere else...

Great great location for European life, walking distance to all Michelin selected restaurants and shops. From windows, very nice river view is available. So kind staff. At front desk, restaurant, and bar. So spacious room.

Simple but nice hotel, in a pleasant position close to Gien centre. Very quiet. Wifi working well also in the rooms. Continental breakfast, you can prepare a juice by yourself! Best hotel in town by far!

We stayed overnight on our drive to SpAin. Location lovely, right on the River Loire. Only downside was no lift to our room on the 3rd floor and my husband struggled. Also, we left our window open because it was very hot, when we came back from having dinner, the bed was covered in hundreds of tiny flies and they...

Stayed here for one night. Hotel is located a short stroll from the small village. Overlooks the Loire and whilst on the main road is peaceful enough. We opted for a River view suite and wow what a room. Massive, with shower rooms, bathrooms, toilets and massive bedroom area. No aircon, but a fan kept us cool enough. Short stroll...

An excellent, clean and comfortable hotel on the banks of the beautiful Loire river. Easy access to good restaurants just a stroll along the river! Great and varied cycling. Good choice for a cycling holiday along this wonderful river. Delicious breakfast and friendly staff!

My daughter and I stayed here in a bike trip through the Loire. They had a great place to keep the bikes and are in a fantastic location across from the river. The room was nice, clean and had a good bathroom. The breakfast was good and staff very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

This accommodation was part of our 2700kms tandem cycling holiday through France. It is a bike-friendly hotel with secure parking at the back for our bicycle. The receptionist and other staff members were friendly and professional. Our room was situated on the first floor at the front of the hotel, overlooking the Loire river. The room was spacious with a...

Having stayed here many years ago, when it still had a restaurant, we were pleased to see it back in lists. Stayed 2 nights at the beginning of the month in a very comfortable room overlooking the Loire. We were the only guests yet a full breakfast buffet was laid out, which we thoroughly enjoyed in the very smart and...
