This is a great newly- renovated boutique hotel that combines the charm of old world with all the necessities of modern living for today's travelers. The bedrooms were very large and comfortable and the bathrooms were all new and luxurious. The decor was exceptional combining high-end contemporary with beautiful antiques. The attention to detail and all the extra touches contributed...

We basically just showed up hoping for a room and was greeted with a super friendly staff member and was offered a fantastic room for my family. The room is clean, modern and very spacious. I can't recommend this place enough!

A very warm welcome was given to us when we arrived and the rest of the stay matched it exactly. We spent one night in the prestige garden room (we travelled with our 8 year old daughter) and the stay was just perfect. Despite there being another garden room adjoining ours, we heard no noise whatsoever - extremely peaceful. We...

We had a relaxing and rejuvenating stay in this charming boutique hotel run by an attentive and friendly staff. Our room had retained aspects of historical character such as exposed wood beams, and at the same time was well appointed with contemporary conveniences like a spacious and modern bathroom, efficient air-conditioning, and reliable wifi. The hotel is situated at a...

We stayed for two nights at this charming, newly renovated inn and can't wait to go back. It blends old world character with modern touches and convenience.

We stayed here for two nights while doing La Loire a Velo. It was such a treat to come back here each night, when we were tired from the day's ride -- and usually soaking wet from the unseasonable rain.

I make a mistake. I booked a room in the very expensive hotel next door to Hotel Au Charme Rabelaisien. The room was attractive, but moldy and it smelled.
