    Wonderful romantic hotel, great breakfast, charming little bar, relaxing patio area. The staff, especially beautiful Francoise, was fantastic. I had lost my wallet in Chinon and the staff went out of their way to help us sort that out. Thanks for everything, Robert and Marianne.

    A very pleasant and charming property. We all felt that it was a little formal and perhaps living on reputation. Bathroom was cramped and needs a bit of TLC. Breakfast very good, especially the jams. Overall, ok.More
