Just perfect for a stop-over - easy to find and great to have parking provided. Friendly staff and very useful that the man who greeted us at reception spoke English. Bathroom could have been cleaner.
It is very well located facing Loire river. 10 minutes walking to city centre We had room for 3 ans only towels for 2.
hotel was clean ,comfortable and in a good location nothing
closeness of the city within walking distance breakfast not included quite expensive for what you got
The evening and morning staff was very helpful and a pleasure to talk to. Their English was much much better than my French but they let me try my language skills and also gave me some French pointers. Overall - staff, accommodations, breakfast, ample parking, and the location to the river walking path – downtown - and the highway worked great for holiday.
easy to find, large parking space, nearby city centre noise parking space (late arrivals/early departures), smell of the room (cleaning?)
Off road, secure parking (we had canoes on the top of our car). No resturant
Convenient car parking (free). Room serviced very late in day.
Nice location and good facilities made this very good value for money. free WiFi throughout the hotel was a strong plus. Good value breakfasts - with proper coffee!
I especially loved that the location was near the river, and that my room was so very quiet, as it face those beautiful Midieval walls of the old city.Also that there was free use of the computer.
THERE WAS A SECURE CAR PARK AS WE WERE TRAVELLING THOUGH TO SOUTHERN FRANCE. THE EVENING MEAL WAS DISAPPOINTING.
located on an industrial estate we found no evidence on signs which would have helped greatly in locating the hotel which several local people were not aware of and could not direct us to !
That we arrived late and left early and did not have to stay too long in this dump. The very small bedroom and bathroom, being in an industrial estate, it was only worth about half the amount you charged us.
Friendly staff, we were running very late and they were very helpfulI would stay there again
The breakfast choice was exceleant. There was no Restaurant, or if there was we were not made aware of it. We had presumed that as a Restauranr was included in the information we would be able to have an evening meal there.
impossible to find.
It had a toilet The generator in the factory next door was noisy and ran on and off all night. No bedside tables.
Approach roads were busy during shopping hours but that is a small problem
Basic but excellent value and very friendly owner.
Hotel was as expected and portrayed web site. No problem for a short stay and well priced for Orleans. Friendly staff.
Very clean and quite newly refurbished. Free coffee in lobby and free wifi. Very clean toilets. Great buffet breakfast. Easy to find location and parking was easy. Feels a bit like a Hilton. Price was good too. Staffing was 3-4 star. Receptionist very friendly and helpful. Staff for dinner and breakfast were nice but not highly professional to match the looks of the hotel. Bar tender was rude and closed bar early.
Everything worked as it should. Definitely one of the better Mercure Hotels. Perhaps a bit pricey compared to comparable competitors. The entrance to the hotel is via a one way road system that is abit convoluted as it is in a traffic-busy part of Orleans.
Room and facilty Limited menu fir dinner. Had better selection at IBIS Millau
close to the town centre, private parking
The whole stay was great, The room is very large with two double beds, the bathroom was very nice. I really enjoyed breakfast. The internet speed was pretty good. It was in the middle of the city. I relly enjoyed it. None
The friendliness and efficiency of the staff, the convenience of the parking, the spaciousness of the room and the good breakfast. Nothing to comment about here.
The staff were friendly and the rooms were good.
Check in was smooth. Breakfast was good. Nice to be able to make a cup of coffee in the bedroom, bur only one not adequate provision for two cups. Facilities in bathroom were god Bathroom door was dirty both sides showing that it is never cleaned Check man was rther cocky and treated us as elderly and not interested in our stay. Coffee at breafast was cold as it had been standing for too long in a vacum flask some of
Good view from room over the River, excellent sound insulation on the windows ensuring the room whilst overlooking a busy road and bridge, very quiet. Good parking facilities.
Located on the banks of the Loire, within walking distance of the city centre, this hotel makes an ideal base for exploring the town. The staff were friendly, the restaurant was perfectly acceptable and the rooms were quiet and spacious. The rooms are quite expensive unless you book in advance and breakfast, parking and internet access are available only if you are prepared to pay a hefty supplement.
Very well thought out brand new accommodation. Ideal for a family with small children. Secure, clean and easily accessible from the N20 or A10.
The room was amazing. Very comfortable after a long drive up from the South. You need a car as the hotel is on the outskirts of town.
Very good check-in & check-out, very good staff Breakfast, cold selection was ok, sausage & egg was disgusting.
I liked the free internet services,although was unable to connect in my suite due to faulty telephone connection9Was reported and immediately noted down.Also liked the kitchen facilities The automatic light in the toilet which comes on when you enter the bathroom.As a light sleeper i was woken up every time my husband went to the toilet.Bathroom near the bed
The perfect spot for travellers to rest. Close to the motorway with very good staff, room and breakfast. Will definately be using them again.
Its room size was ideal, being sound proofed, suite style, parking & breakfast & access to restaurants in walking distance
Ideal for travellers who want to be self-contained, i.e. a kitchenette with all facilities, fridge, microwave, coffee and tea making facilities etc etc. and comfortable beds. Good for overnight stay and also as base whilst visiting the Orleans area. Will deffinitely use again. Found the bathroom arrangement a bit strange. WC is in the bathroom with only a louvre door separating it from the bedroom . Apart from that the bathroom was fine with good shower (not often something you get in France) hairdryer etc. etc.
Comfortable, clean and convenient
Well equipped, very smart and comfortable room (espace suite) provides everything you need for a short stay in the Orleans area. Very friendly staff and a good breakfast selection (didn't try the hot dishes). Much better than the conventional chain hotels in the area. Nothing negative about the hotel, but Orleans centre is about 3-4 miles drive - easy though and parking is good when you return to the hotel.
An excellent stop-over hotel, really comfortable and well-equipped family suite which easily accommodated four of us. Ideal mid-point when driving to the south of France and will use again
It has a swimming pool which could be nice in hot weather Bathroom could have been cleaner, service in restaurant was poor. No comfortable chairs in bedroom.
We enjoyed our night at this hotel, staff were very friendly and helpful. Resturant very good. Note that not all facilities ie. bistro and bar are open all year.
Reception did not open until 730
On site parking - on site restaurant - convenient for stop-over en route back to UK - quiet room with no traffic noise - pleasant town. Slightly run down - especially bedroom. Short of staff (though it must be said that they were always polite, worked very hard and tried thier best to keep up) Plastic flowers on the dining room tables.
Location Food was poor compared with previous years - new chef?
The restaurant is very good. The rooms are somewhat dated.
The location and the staff The bed was old, lumpy and very uncofrtable.
Very riendly staff and good, comfortable, quiet rooms. We recommend.
Very central. Rom was a good size. Nothing
lovely location in a pretty town, kind staff, professional
Nice clean room & good service Would have liked tea/coffee facilities in the room
Excellent breakfast, tennis court (free equipment), friendly staff, good ambience
The food was excellent. I could not move the bath water supply from bath to shower. Room 243
Restaurant open long hours to accomodate travellers
Outside of hotel may put off visitors as it is pretty basic looking, however the inside of the hotel is wonderful with a lovely central garden and pool, tennis courts, table tennis and al fresco area. We had two rooms, not interconnecting, but next to one another with large bed and sofa bed. Had dinner in restaurant, enjoyable vegetarian cuisine and a super breakfast, lots of choice including innocent smoothies!
It is a good hotel for a stopover.
The rooms were a reasonable size, clean and modern, free wifi, staff were very helpful and attentive, plenty of parking and near all local places of interest, although the location itself was\quiet and attractive. Some of the doors seemed very noisy at night as people came in and out.
Cheap, but very modern + comfortable room Price of breakfast
A perfect place for families with young children to stop on the way to the South of France. Clean, modern, welcoming and relaxing. Much more 'holiday-ish' than any city hotel I have ever stayed in, the ideal place to recharge batteries during a long drive. Very friendly guests too! More staff in the bar/restaurant would have been good as service was a little slow - although the staff that were there worked very hard.
Excellent hotel - very good value for money. Spacious and modern rooms, very clean and good facilities - restaurant, cafe, internet. This hotel deserves another star on its rating!
staff are very helpful and along with the style of the hotel provides a unique ambience for a stay. We were very disappointed with the cost of food drink and wine etc Some years ago we had an excellent stay at the hotel and enjoyed an excellent table d'hote menu. Having stayed at some excellent hotels in the Sawday's guide on our 10 day trip around France the Hotel now we feel is not providing as good value as it once was. We spoke to fellow guests who felt the same, consequently we dined away from the hotel after our first night on all inclusive menus of 30 - 40 euros of excellent quality and with good wines from 18 euros upwards.
Friendly welcome, excellent cuisine, beautiful garden, swimming pool and quiet setting No
Professional staff, friendly, welcoming and accommadating. Especially appreciated the straight forward carte menu. Would go again. Although comfortable the bathroom could be updated.
I expected a 4 star hotel, but la Tonnellerie cannot be classified as such. Maximum a 3 star, and even then the bathroom needs a thorough renovation. The quality of the food in the restaurant was absolutely not up to standard. Hardly any choice on the menu card, and the prices were far too steep for food that was pre-cooked, without any imagination. Fortunately we ate the rest of our journey in far better restaurants and for much lower prices.
Very pretty, individual and interesting, with lots of character. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful, also the owner. The food was excellent and the courtyard garden was a lovely sunny spot to have a drink/snack. Just a pity the weather wasn't good enough for the pool to be open. Only one thing - our room had an unpleasant smell of stale smoke, although the room our children stayed in was fine.
Great quiet setting, and outstanding interest by staff Had to go outside for dinner
excellent staff and very helpfull.
Very friendly and helpful staff and management, excellent food, comfortable rooms and charming atmosphere.
Like the garden and the hotel staffs were great, very helpful and friendly. No fridge in the room, the street from the main road is not easily recognizable.
we have stayed there before and like it very much it is a great shame that they have closed there restaurant
Friendly staff! Good breakfast for the money!
Room in need of refurbishment. Overcharged on room and breakfast, a total of €8.00 Please refund. When queried, their knowledge of english disappeared.
Did not like the noise!! The walls are too thin - I don't like hearing men going to the toilet, or chattering all night. I would have liked a mirror in the bedroom as well as in the bathroom.
the rooms needed some tlc
the location so close to the centre of Orleans was superb. Friendly atmosphere and helpful staff who were very understanding about my terrible french. Bathroom a bit poky. Room very basic and absolutely no extras.
Quiet, comfortable room. Cheery, helpful staff. I found it difficult to find when walking from the station on the first night. Local people didn't know the address either! Once I found the route it was easy, just off the main street!
Good Location in the middle of town, everything within walking distance. Located on a busy and noisy street, hard to sleep through. Walls between rooms are also thin and definately not soundproof
Very helpful and obilging staff. Real French style hotel, basic but very clean. Breakfast good and location very close to centre of Oleans. Parking can be a problem if using a roofbox. I booked private parking which was arranged but this copes with vehicles 1.9 metres or less. Ensuite bathroom seperated by wonky concertina door. Towels on hard side. Good television.
It was very conveniently situated to explore Orleans. The room was rather small and the towels were rather rough.The parking was tricky as it was in a very full public car park.
Easy to find and very central. Very helpful staff and good advice on where to park, eat etc. Basically badly decorated, dirty, smelly and in urgent need of refrubishment.
Cottage was a good size for a family of 4
The food was excellent in restaurant, views across golf course, bedrooms and price of overnight stay. The slow service in the restaurant.
Nice setup and facilities. Bathroom moldy.
The children enjoyed the golf facilities
Reception staff was helpful; we got a cottage at a better location than the one we first got (close to parking and road) when we asked for it. Cleanliness could be better, cottage equipped only basically.
We stayed here in a cottage for one night with a toddler as a stop from London to Montpellier. It was great to be able to put the toddler to bed upstairs and then cook ourselves dinner downstairs without disturbing her. The room was clean. The swimming pool was clean and warm for a post-breakfast dip in the morning before another day in the car.
Outdoor pool,if small was nice. Luckily the hotel was not busy. The attached Spa was not included, despite the feeling that it was from the website. Cottage rooms are not really for 4 people, but 1 night was fine. Too much noise caused by tiled floor!
easilly accessible location, staff OK food very common and restricted breakfast offer (few over cooked pastries and pre-packed cheese - pretty disappointing). open wine of very poor quality. very uncomfortable mattress.
We felt that it met our needs as a pure stop-over location. It was handy for the autoroute, had a pool and dining facilities.
The environment and the staff politeness. Not to get my room at my arrival time, 1 p.m, even if it was precised on the booking receipt.
No car parking.
Very good location, in the city center. Excellent breakfast. Small but confortable room. Professional staff. Good value for money.
The room was very nice, quite, airconditioned. Good location, breakfast, internet was free. The bathroom was very small.
Concierge after booking the money for the room were blocked twice (they said just to check the validity of the card)
The Staff, both the reception desk and breakfast staff were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast was very nice, well presented, and very well cared for. The rooms were clean and neat, great towels. The lighting in our room was poor. Near the bed were only two small and very low height situated bedlights ... and there was only one other lamp in the room. raising the two lamps by the beds would improve the situation tremendously.
Hotel is located in a pedestrian area, so access to the hotel with a car is slightly confusing and hopefully not illegal :) It might be good to have this topic clarified in the hotel info...
Friendliness of staff, proximity to city center, overall atmosphere of the hotel
Location, location. location. The staff is very nice. Rooms are very clean.It is located near Louvre and some metro stations. Breakfast is fine. Rooms are small and isn't enought light.
The character of the hotel and its location made this a lovely change from the bland stereotypical offerings from the usual hotel chains.The breakfast was also first class. Be aware that unloading luggage at the front door can be a problem due to a combination of lack of space and the tram cars passing by. It is also tricky to locate depite being very central due to traffic restrictions and said tram cars. My suggestion would be to park first in one of the nearby public car parks and walk to the hotel and assess the best way to get your luggage to the front door. Once you done this everything falls into place.
We were passing through enroute to the Pyrennees There were only 2 sachets of coffee in the room. When we asked the night man for 2 more we were told that they had none available.It was due to the attitude of this member of staff that I marked staff as fair. The check in and out staff were excellent.
Hotel in a historic environment, in the hart of the Loire region A hotel with a lot of potentiel that can be a very charming hotel. At this moment it needs a freshing up ( especially the outside : garden, painting, main entrance,...). Once inside it is ok although the bathroom is also rather old. Personnaly I did not have any problem, but the reception staff only knows the french language.
Wonderful hotel. Just stunning. Beautiful rooms. Lovely atmosphere. Lovely staff. Two beautiful lounge rooms and a bar. The breakfast room was beautiful. I took photos of every room! Breakfast (inclues champagne!) was well worth the price. Lovely fresh breads and cheeses. They also served hot food. The hike up the grand staircase with luggage was a small price to pay. Would definitely stay here again.
The abbaye itself is beautiful and the ambience is very nice; it has an interesting history. The staff is indifferent. The breakfast is overpriced, but it is very difficult to find anything else in the neighborhood.
Nicley situated on the River Loire, lovely medieval feel to the area
Location in the town of Beaugency, great for an evening walk. Hotel was unusual which the children liked. Rooms could do with refurbishment. Rooms setting could be a little spooky for younger children.
Old interesting place Beds are a bit soggy
Very unusual, very interesting experience. It has a different kid of charm and character that you don't find in normal hotel, even compared to another Chateau.
Fantastic hotel in great setting. Rooms are beautiful. You could just imagine monks living there at one time. The staff were awful. Miserable and unhelpful. Did not listen to any complaints.
The incredible sense of history of the place as a former abbey, our room was large and beautifully decorated with antiques. It felt like we were staying in a museum. There was no elevator and the stairs were very worn down. Of course they were the original stairs and had been used over the centuries but they were also dangerous in spots. This issue could be delat with by installing a small elevator just to get the baggage up and down and a sign asking guests to watch their step.
Very nice old world appeal-we took photo's of the distintive hallway and staircase.
