We stayed for three nights in nov 16. The hotel is located close to the rail station which is a big plus especially if one wants to explore the area around tours. The room was just about ok size but was very tidy. Bfast is provided at hotel, but there are enough restaurants close to the hotel. The ladies at...

Hotels in Tours are limited unless you go to some Chateau hotels in the country side. This is not a bad hotel, very close to the train station and central Tours. The balcony opens to the Tours and you can see the cathedral tower. The only thing I do not like is the shower. It is not completely enclosed, and...

I booked 3 nights in a comfort Twin Room excluding breakfast. I wanted somewhere near the train station and it certainly is. It about 5 minutes walk. At the train station, go out the side entrance (oposite side to the trams) turn right and across the road you will see a little alleyway. Take that, follow it to the end...

We had two ground floor rooms that seemed to have been fairly recently decorated and had very large, comfortable beds. The staff were friendly, helpful and spoke good English. Driving into the underground car park was a nightmare. The ramp down is steep and narrow (my Ford Mondeo only just fitted) and there is a very tight bend which I...

Because I was renting a car when I toured the Loire Valley, parking was very important to me. This hotel lacks parking!! Do not believe the website. Getting into the parking beneath the hotel you have to navigate a very narrow driveway that could easily damage your vehicle. I saw many marks of paint and damage along the side of...

This is a lovely hotel, which I would definitely recommend. The reception/lounge area and rooms are absolutely spotless and very nicely decorated. Our room had excellent air conditioning and all the usual things you would expect (tea/coffee making, safe etc) and a very comfortable bed. The rooms are all named after film stars, which is a nice little quirk. There...

We stayed for 1 night in August as part of our drive across France and really enjoyed the relaxed approach and warm welcome.
