This hotel is located across bridge from chateau and medieval streets. Less than 10 minute walk to old town over bridge. Best views of Loire and chateau. Used as overnight stop and visited old town lit up at night and meal in square with many bard and restaurants to choose from and eating in open air.

Nice, relatively simple hotel with very friendly staff. The hotel is located not far from the old town, it is just a 5 minute walk. There is private parking in the back so that you can keep the bicycles on the car if you wish.

Extremely friendly family run hotel. Nothing seemed too much trouble and excellent breakfast set us up for rides. Rooms basic, clean, good shower and wifi throughout- although not particularly fast, perhaps more in keeping with having a break! Cycling very easy with excellent signage. Hotel just across bridge from centre. Lovely view of river and the castle on walk in.

Room fairly standard for a French hotel - small, stuffy with a hard mattress and tiny pillows. Bathroom good with excellent shower. Wifi poor in room. Very clean. Lots of passing traffic through the night and lots of people returning after a night out through the early hours of the morning. It's cheap and is only a short walk into... More

The Saint Jacques is just over the river from the main city of Chinon, offers a great view of the Fortress, and an easy, five-minute walk across the Vienne into the heart of the city. It's a lovely family-run hotel, partnering with the Contact-Hotel chain of independents. There's a lovely warm welcome, with nice touches such as umbrellas for when... More

Had a one night stay & was very pleased with the room, the cleanliness and the friendliness of the owners. For the price the room was good. The hotel is just across the river from the town centre. A pleasant 5 minute walk gets you into the middle of the town. Would highly recommend this hotel.

This review is bicycle oriented. The overnight bike storage is excellent. The concierge could not have been more helpful. Clean, quiet and a short walk to the centre of town. Don't miss the fortress. Spectacular. The breakfast was great with pots of homemade jam and preserves. Best of all it is right on the velo a Loire route. Highly recommended... More
