A perfect overnight stop here in November, en route from SW France to Calais, being bang in the middle. 5 hours direct to Calais from Chinon. The hotel was very clean and our room was spacious, clean and well decorated and presented with a large bathroom, shower only though but all modern and working well. There was also free wifi throughout the hotel and a LAN connection with cable in the room:
Breakfast was typical continental but well presented and the staff very friendly, helpful and spoke a smattering of English, which about matched our French:
Definitely a good place to stop, pleasant little town on the La Vienne. If buying wine there is a Carrefour just around the corner with good prices and a good selection of local wines.
