The hotel was rececently renovated and rooms/decor attractive. Staff friendly and accomodating.Restaurant is really superb- an experience not to be missed. Very pleased overall - would return if in the area again No room service - not good for a 4 star hotel
What can I say? it s a castle right out of a fairy tale. I can't wait to go back..
Despite our bad experience with the room, the settings of the castle are beautiful and quiet, although a little far off from the Loire castles. Expect to drive at least 1 hour to most of the castles. There is a fancy and expensive "restaurant gastronomique" and a brasserie, where you can eat on the terrace for very reasonable prices. For breakfast, we had to beg a bit to get a coffee and a croissant in the brasserie but we got it; the other option is to pay 20 Euros for a not very remarkable breakfast buffet. Bathrooms were much better than the rooms. Careful - some of the Classic Rooms in the Castle (2nd floor, e.g. 203) are clearly substandard for a 4 star- and with prices on this site lower than the regular price - guess who gets them. We had a tiny little room with an even tinier bullseye window that opened only half way and should have been replaced years back. Result: No air, 29 degrees Celsius in the room at midnight with the window open, while outside it was a fresh night around 18 degrees. We slept very little, and had to fight to be moved into another room for the remaining 2 nights. Second room was OK. Still, for a 4 star place, I would have expected the castle to be much better renovated and much cleaner, like others we've seen in France. A bit shabby in some details.
Beautiful setting and reception staff were lovely. Restuarant over priced and too fussy, we eat out a lot but this is way over the top. Waiter also very stuffy and quite rude at times
We had a lovely stay in the hotel. It is really beautiful and the staff is excellent. The hotel is expensive and the rooms are nice, but not for that money. We had a promotion, so for us it was fine.
Not interested in golf this trip, but liked the surroundings The "Chateau" was not quite up to the pictures on the Internet.
I have nothing to say ; all was brilliant ; I hope I'll come back sometime
Great ambience, lovely decor, peaceful surroundings No control over other guests - had to complain at 2.15 a.m. about a very noisy party going on in the lounge directly below.
No Wi-Fi. It is far away from restaurants and facilities and charged quite a lot for such location. We spent more than an hour to find a place to eat. The hotel restaurant is very expensive and not operating on Sunday evening.
The pleasantness of the staff, their willingness to please, the beautiful hotel and surroundings, the superb decoration in our room. 45 Euro for a measure of Martell Cordon Bleu Cognac is ridiculous.
great location. missed the airco
Friendliness and professionalism of staff. Quality of food. Building and decor
Marvelous food and wine in beautiful surroundings
Attractive location Overpriced, particularly the restaurant.
Large rooms, friendliness of staff, good facilities, excellent food and location was handy for touring the region, especially the Tour-Blois route. Lack of coffee/tea facilities in room. Saturday night was very busy due to a function and dinner service was extremely slow.
Excellent service, dinner was great.
It was the best. Nothing was to much trouble. If you are looking for superb service food and rooms this is the right place.
Beautiful building. Excellent food and hospitable staff. Building not in A1 condition, but still very good.
A most beautiful Chateau set in a wonderful park. The food was superb and the heated swimming was a delight. All very comfortable and I would highly recommend it if you visiting the Loire area.
Everything was superb, the drinks that I ordered at reception on the night we arrived did not however, get delivered to our room as requested. Which was the only dissappointment. Same as above and also I was not able to get a cup of English tea. I suggest Yorkshire tea, if you are interested, strong and tasty and available in Carrefore.
The chateau was stunning, set in amazing grounds. We dined at the restaurant at night, lovely gourmet food, unfortunately we were surrounded by an American tour group, which unfortunately did not help the ambience. Our room was nice, but a lovely large bathroom. Would recommend, was excellent value for money for a chateau in the area, when booking through booking.com.
excellent reception; good meals;very helpful staff; good safe parking facility The credit card system was out of order and we had to pay with cash.
The steak was good, the room was well cleaned. Unfortunately we forgot an item of luggage, I emailed the hotel but got no reply, I later phoned the hotel but was told that the bag could not be found.
Very good friendly helpful service with good restaurant meal. Nothing really. Perfectly adequate for a short stay.
Very friendly. A little chaotic but good menus. We were at the ftront - lots of traffic noise.
Very nice old historical village with its own chateau
The only thing I liked was the location, very close to the Chateaux Amboise. There was a lot of fur of pets in the pillow, probably from a previous guest. Never stay there again, very dirty! If a hotel wants to accept pets at least they have to clean the room after.
The resturant was excellent
I liked the friendly staff, the general atmosphere and the food in the restaurant. There is a problem with hot water in the rooms and we did not get anything more than warm after waiting several minutes
location and pleasant staff no
We liked everything about our stay here!! The comfort, the beauty of the rooms, the excellent breakfast, the fabulous dinner, the wonderful owner/chef.
The room was lovely - beams and old furniture. Beautifully decorated. Good size ensuite. Our evening meal was in their magical Garden and really delicious and beautifully presented.. Can't find a fault with the hotel at all.
Excellent cuisine, pleasant and attentive staff, comfortable and quiet rooms. We were able to bring our two dogs with us.
We received a good welcome and weer upgraded. Lovely room and very secure parking. Dinner was delicious. The furnishings of the hotel delightful.
The hotel was a very pleasant stop on the journey to the coast: the staff were welcoming and my room spacious and comfortable. It was good to have car-parking in the hotel grounds. The dinner was excellent I found the stairs to my room on the top floor very steep; it was difficult to carry a suitcase up/down on my own.
the hotel was in a good position for us as we were travelling south. everything in and about the hotel was superb and we had a great overnight break. the food was excellent and very freindly staff
Very nice typicallly french hotel in the centre of a small town with excellent food
We thought that the hotel was excellent and the proprieter was very charming and accommodating. When he saw that my partner had difficulty walking he immediatley changed our room to a ground floor one. We would definately stay there again. No bad points at all.
Very good and warm reception, excellent family rooms! The location was very good, just 5 km of the highway and very rural and calm. The service in the restaurant was not that good.
Comfortable room and bed. Nowhere obvious to buy drinks through the day. No table service offered for drinks when sat at a table outside. Slow table service in restaurant and high prices (although the food was very good).
We stayed here twice, on our outward and return journeys. The demi pension with breakfast and evening meal included was excellent.
Comfort,good food and wine ,easy access,welcoming staff at a reasonable price.
Nice and friendly no
The staff phone within 5 minutes of booking to confirm our stay & followed up with a further call on the day of arrival. The bedding was clean. Were not aware when booking that there were no restuarant facilities at the hotel on the Sunday and there was no where to eat in the village! Having travelled for 8 hrs did not want to have to travel 8klms to a restaurant. The overall appearance of the hotel was tired and shabby. There were no tea & coffee making facilites.
clean, nice, comfortable. No fuss. We didn't eat in the Resturant, but where told by family living in the area that it is a great place to dine.
It was very clean and the staff were friendly. Both the stay and breakfast were good value for money. It was well situated near the main route but in a small and quiet village.
Staff were friendly and obliging, room comfortable and restaurant excellent although wine list a little expensive
owner friendly nothing
People were very friendly Breakfast is typical french, could be more continental
Attention to detail, friendliness of owners, decor, food. location, terraced gardfen, in fact we were completely happy with this hotel and would recommend to our friends.
We received an a very warm welcome. Our room was immaculate and the evening meal based on Alsacian cuisine was a really good experience.
Good location for access to Le Mans. Very helpful staff. Good value for money
Room finished to high standard, showers superb, restaurant menu wonderful, service & staff friendliness excellent 3 visits and nothing to criticise
Room was of a good size, very clean and had plenty of storage space as well as an en -suite roomy shower room.Buffet breakfast was superb with plenty of choice.Proprietor and all his staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.Le Lude is a good location to tour from being within easy reach of Le Mans,Tours and the Loire valley chateaux. The Loir valley was quieter with I would say pleasanter scenery. I would have no hesitation in visiting this Hotel again.
Traditional friendly small French hotel in centre of town recently restored with new en suite and sanitary fittings and new bedroom furniture. Sattelite TV actually worked - a first for France! We did not dine at hotel as staying with family. Parking was a bit difficult - parking in street made worse by special market during our stay, but we did not mind walking a couple of roads to park.
the room was spacious with beds/matraces of very high quality. the shower is efficient and in perfect state (a rare state in hotels in France of this category) the dining fascilities in the enclosed terrace/courtyard are are very agreeable during hot days. the food is interesting, regional "a l'alsacienne" and served in rather large portions. not expensive and good value for money.
The proprietor went out of his way to make our stay a good one, satying late up to welcome us and provide us with a much needed snack. No A/C in the second room, which made sleeping uncomfortable for our sons.
