      Courtyard lovely for dining out. Good food and wines. Breakfast a little disappointing. Room spacious and comfortable but facilities could have been better designed and fitted into the fabric of the building

      Breakfast buffet only ok

    • Couple

      The town of Azay le Rideau, the proximity to the town center, the traditional French atmosphere of the hotel, the helpfulness of the staff

      The restaurant of it is excellente!!

      Booked a triple; got the Amboise room. On a 7 hotel/9 night Loire trip; this one had the most awesome bathtub ever, a 3-person jacuzzi. Room was cool with exposed roofing timbers, 5 minute slow walk to chateau, restaurants and center of town was out front door.

      My wife was mad there was a guy up on the roof working at 0930h. Hey, don't sleep so late, honey! Buildings need maintenance. Come relax in the tub with me!

      Very pleasant hotel with welcoming staff. Room was simple but beautifully decorated and very tasteful. Good breakfast - for a french country hotel. Good location. We will return.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Lovely, typical, French independent hotel in a beautiful village. Manager (owner?) went to great effort to ensure we were comfortable.

      Rooms didn't have any coffee/tea making facilities, which I think is a must in today's world and the breakfast was expensive at €13 each, including children. We decided to eat out!!

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Very friendly and helpful staff. Disappointed that our room was on the second floor and no lift available. Whilst we were unable to have dinner on both nights due to the restaurant being full, they recommended an excellent restaurant nearby.

    • Family with children

      Staff was friendly. Huge amount of space in the room we got.

      Room needed updating.

    • Couple
      10.0

      The professional and friendly front desk staff was a big help. On our check-in, he hand carried our bags all the way from the reception up to our rooms on the 3rd floor, careful to avoid dragging the wheels on the dusty gravel courtyard in between. Those bags were not very light either! The room and bed was very comfortable.

    • Group of friends

      Very attractive hotel with pretty courtyard and located in this lovely town a stone's throw away from the chateau. Excellent dinner.

    • Group of friends
      5.8

      In the centre of a lively little town with cafe's, shops, art galleries etc close by. Adjacent parking in the free public car park. Very convenient to visit the lovely Chateaux Azay within easy walking distance and the wonderful gardens at Chateau Villandry 20 mins drive away

      A very indifferent welcome by hotel staff and limited breakfast in the morning. Rather gloomy decor except in the dining room which is okay. Bedrooms very cheaply finished but expensive compared to others.

    • Family with children
      9.6

      The setting, friendliness of staff, warm greeting, huge room

      tea and coffee in room would have been good, but wasn't advertised as such so not a complaint-just a personal preference

    • Couple
      7.8

      Good location for exploring the Loire valley, easy parking, helpful staff, nice buffet breakfast.

      Hotel's interior looks dated and unclean.

    • Single
      7.8

      Independence and privacy. You just do the check-in and nobody knows when your enter or leave your room.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      This hotel, contained in a 200+ year old mansion, is right in the heart of Azay-le-Rideau and just down the walking street from the chateau. The chateau was very nice. The hotel is in an old building, but it is updated and well maintained. Don't expect a new building, but do expect lots of charm. The hotel is surrounded by a friendly village, replete with all the shops you need -- bakery, cafe, grocer -- along with several small restaurants. Free parking is adjacent to the hotel, but be advised that parking is prohibited from midnight on Friday night to 2 pm on Saturday, because of the farmers market. Don't get towed!! Ask the hotel where to park during this time. They did not warn us, and we failed to read the sign, and were lucky not to get towed. The farmers market was great. Our room was very nice, with a view of the village, it was quiet, and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large and nicely appointed. There is no elevator, but our clerk was very helpful carrying the bags. We did not eat at the hotel, but the local bakeries were fantastic. The cafe next door sells excellent coffee to go, so we breakfasted in our room.
