4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very well located hotel with free secured parking a short walk away. More secure parking in basement for a small fee. Hotel overlooks the Loire and the Chateau opposite, terrace for taking breakfast in warm weather. Very good breakfast and very comfortable room with all the appropriate facilities. Staff very friendly and helpful .

The hotel is as expected, standard size room, amenities and facilities. Nothing special with the exception of the Chateau view which is spectacular. The hotel is located across the bridge from the town thus there isn't much surrounding the hotel. The breakfast buffet is small but decent, with fruits, cereals, yoghurt, pastries, crepes, cheeses etc. The bar has a limited selection but good view of the town, river and chateau. There isn't much character given that it is a hotel chain however it's great value for money because of the location.

I stayed here for one night as part of a return journey from further south. I enjoyed my stay. The room was a decent size, and everything looked new and was clean. Staff were courteous and efficient at all times. We opted for one of the rooms with a river view and this was very worthwhile. The view from the window is great. There is secure underground parking, with an area for cyclists and motorcyclists. It costs EUR8 per night. The town is an interesting place to explore, and there is an amazing abundance of wildlife right outside. I've never seen so many herons in one place. Overall, recommended.

One night stop on the way back to the ferry from the south. Easy to find and park. Good welcome. Nice comfortable room looking over the river to the old town and the chateau. Easy walk into town alongside the river and over the bridge though there's a stiff climb up to the chateau. Reasonable bistro La Bouche a Oreille close by for dinner.

This hotel is in a great location on the river bank. We found our room to be small but comfortable. We enjoyed a drink on the lovely terrace with beautiful views of the city. We could walk easily to restaurants and shops. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. It was a very peaceful stay.

Really liked the location and outlook of the hotel, looking across the river towards the chateau. Check in staff were fine, bar staff indifferent. Rooms were OK and cleanliness was good. Fine for a night, but I would look elsewhere in future.

We stayed here 10 years ago and since then the hotel has had a make over. It is a stunning view over the château which is lit at night. Our Room was a "Privilege" one over looking the Loire. Small balcony, enough for two. Large comfortable bed Separate W/C to bathroom Shower over Bath Tea and coffee facilities. Reception staff very helpful in recommending eating places for the evening. Breakfast at 16 Euros but plentiful and good choice. Fresh fruit, breads, cooked facilities, Gluten free. Very accommodating Small gym available second floor There is a lift Car Parking just outside the hotel is limited but free car parking is a small walk away, barrier controlled.

Excellent location, right on the river looking at the Chateau & beautiful old buildings of Saumur. The bars, shops and restaurants of the town are just a few minutes walk across the bridge. They have a lovely, if narrow terrace overlooking the river, from which to enjoy a cold drink & watch the world go by. It's a real sun trap at certain times of the day, but don't sit out on it at night in the summer with a bright light as the proximity to the river means thousands of flying creatures! The hotel itself is modern & clean & the rooms of reasonable size, although only 1 small wardrobe for two is just not enough. We were travelling on a motorcycle, so didn't have many clothes, but this still was insufficient for our needs. The bathroom was modern & the shower worked very well, a simple plus, but one that counts in my opinion (I have been at the other end of the scale and a rat filthy bathroom just doesn't aid a comfortable stay!). There was a fridge in the room which had power, but it too seemed to be on holiday as it didn't bother chilling anything. There is parking in the (quiet) streets around the hotel as well as in the secure car park underneath. We thought we'd negotiated a deal to put the 3 motorcycles in 1 car space, but discovered after leaving that they'd charged us for 3 spaces, which was a bit naughty. The staff overall were helpful, if a little stand-offish. They seemed more friendly once they realised a few of us (we were a group of 6) could speak French. The young chap who worked both reception & the bar (who we thought might be the owner's son) was the friendliest of the lot, nothing was a problem for him. However, they had a member of staff who covered the same roles and she really shouldn't be in the hospitality business, as she struggled to smile at us, consistently short-filled the ladies' proseccos & argued with us when we said we would only be staying 4 nights, not the pre-booked 5. It was her that finalised our bills that overcharged us €8 a day per couple.

We stayed for 2 nights on our way back to the ferry. A great location on the island with an amazing view across to the chateau and Saumur. A 5 minute walk across the Pont des Cadets de Saumur and you are in town. Easy to find with free hotel parking outside and a very short walk away in a gated area. Book a superior room with river views to appreciate this wonderful location. Good breakfast buffet available. Friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely revisit.

Our room had a wonderful view of the river and chateau. The room was clean and had a walk-in shower with two shower heads in the bathroom. It was a five minute walk into the restaurant area of town. We managed to find a place with vegetarian food called Bar 1929. Breakfast was good at the hotel and all the staff friendly and helpful.
