We stayed here overnight on our way down to the Dordogne.
We found it easily and there was ample parking. We then hunted round for a while trying to get into reception which was shut.
It turned out that they had sent an email telling us that reception was shut and enclosing a code to let us in. By the time we'd found that the receptionist had arrived.
Our room was on the third floor and the lift was tiny but worked.
Our room was ok if a little dated with two big beds ample for us and the two boys, a separate toilet and separate bathroom (shower).
The hotel is close enough to walk to the Loire and then into town (maybe 20 mins).
It was a very hot day (34°C) and there was no air conditioning in the room. We could open the windows but with no air moving it was a very uncomfortable night. The beds were also very firm.
At this price point you'd hope for air conditioning and a rather better state of decoration.
You could certainly do worse but I'd avoid it during hot weather.

Website is very misleading. This property is not set in parkland. It has a patch of grass outside. Not a particularly nice part of town. No one else seemed to be staying in the hotel so it was a strange feeling not see a single other guest. Asked for a low room but were put on the highest floor. Basic beyond basic room. Couldn't wait to leave.

Stayed here overnight. Rooms were clean, comfortable and everything worked. Easy to access by car and there was plenty of good parking. Reception staff friendly. Unfortunately wifi was broken when we visited, but these things happen and a repair man was in attendance when we checked out which suggests it was being resolved quickly. We would stay here again.
If you want a nice meal, we ate just down the road at Restaurant Les Terrasses de Loire. Very nice!

After calling in they waited for us at late arrival before leaving the reception desk. Parking was good, room and bed were comfortable. Breakfast was ok. All in all an enjoyable stay at a very competitive price. Wifi was free and worked flawlessly. We also walked to the Loire from the hotel which was just down the road and very pretty.

We spent a night at this property during our trip to Loire valley. The hotel is clean, the owner at the front desk is friendly and the hotel provides free parking, which was what we were looking for. The hotel is located about 30 minutes walk from the center. There are nice views of roof tops from hotel rooms but, as in many building in France, there is no air conditioning. We happened to stay during one hot summer night and couldn't sleep that well even with a window completely open. Wi-Fi worked well and the speed was acceptable.
Overall, good affordable choice, but keep in mind absence of a/c if you're staying during summer months.
