This is a quaint village hotel - rather drab from the outside, but has a charming small garden at the back where we ate a delicious evening meal. The chef uses herbs and spices from the garden and the food had a very interesting twist. A family run hotel, and we felt very relaxed and welcome there with our own two children. Our quadruple bedroom was fine - with a lovely, decadent marble shower room, and everything was clean. The only minor downside was that our (very nice) room overlooked the main village road - which was actually quite busy from early on in the morning. A number of lorries use this route and thundered past the bedroom, making it noisy.
I liked the warm welcome by the owners, the nmice atmosphere and good price-quality ratio.
The sauna, it was good, but the price is 10 euro per person. One thing which I don't like was: in the morning they didn't respect the clients, and tried to show that it's a time to leave the room, with a polite smile in a face lady told: that you need to leave the room at 10.30 (!!!) why not at 8?))))))) on the web site there is an information that the chek out time is 11.00. They destroyed the romantic moments in the morning....Also restaraunt is not a restaraunt...in a menu u don't have any choce.....it's depends on what they cook on that day)
Great hospitality! Beaufully quirky hotel in a very peaceful location. A tea and coffee maker in the room would have been great!
Very riendly staff and good, comfortable, quiet rooms. We recommend.
Location Food was poor compared with previous years - new chef?
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.
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.
lovely location in a pretty town, kind staff, professional
The restaurant is very good. The rooms are somewhat dated.
Reception did not open until 730
Very central. Rom was a good size. Nothing
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.
The location and the staff The bed was old, lumpy and very uncofrtable.
Nice friendly staff - gift for small children on arrival. Relaxed setting. Pool table and Xbox for older children - Excellent. Pool was not as big and the photos had made it look - small and cold
It had nice rooms and the food was good.
Staff was friendly Bathroom smelled horrible. Bad ventilation.
The hotel was very conveniently situated. A very enjoyable visit.
Hotel Staff was very helpful and friendness. The room was very clean and includes good bathroom (WC was separated) with big tab. Nothing.
a bit old fashioned. Needs some refurnishing.
This is not a renovated hotel and the beds are not that confortable....
Friendly welcome, excellent cuisine, beautiful garden, swimming pool and quiet setting No
we have stayed there before and like it very much it is a great shame that they have closed there restaurant
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.
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
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.
Very friendly and helpful staff and management, excellent food, comfortable rooms and charming atmosphere.
Professional staff, friendly, welcoming and accommadating. Especially appreciated the straight forward carte menu. Would go again. Although comfortable the bathroom could be updated.
excellent staff and very helpfull.
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.
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 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 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.
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
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.
Very nice old world appeal-we took photo's of the distintive hallway and staircase.
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
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.
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.
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.
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!
Nice setup and facilities. Bathroom moldy.
The children enjoyed the golf facilities
The food was excellent in restaurant, views across golf course, bedrooms and price of overnight stay. The slow service in the restaurant.
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.
Cottage was a good size for a family of 4
Clean, wooden floors, good food deals for children. Helpful staff and a place to store bicycles
Far from gorgeous but well facilitated for family with small children. Friendly staffs. Casual restaurant. Easy free parking. No elevator. No mini bar (but a vending machine near lobby).
Good for one night stay on the way to final destination. Quiet environment. Close to highway. Friendly and helpful staff Old facilities, need some improvement, especially the bathroom. No air conditioning. A bit far from the city center of Blois.
Reasonable price, clean, Long way from Blois, no other restaurants in the area without driving
Very good location, if you travel by car.
I liked the price and the location. The bathroom carrelage was really dirty, I told them about it then I thought they would clean it next day.They did not.Rooms were a litle too hot,no fans or air conditioning.
The hotel was good value for money. I wouldn't want to stay for any great length of time but it was good for an overnight stop.
The setting was ok Bedrooms were only basic. Needed a lot of upgrades. Hotel was quite old. Not value for mone.
We have stayed at several Campaniles over the years, and have generaly been happy with it, we enjoy the restaurants, but think the room need some improvment.
Our room was on the ground floor and the only way to get fresh air was to open a door to the car park, which left us feeling vulnerable. A noisy coach party arrived at 11:30 pm which woke us up.
great food for fair price at * rated michelin restauranr maybe only room 2, but combined heat/cooling system makes (even shut down) enoying noices. confort not in relation to excellence of rating of restaurant
Location - near Chambord; Quietness of the hotel. Excellent breakfast.
Excellent staff, great resturant, good breakfast
staff welcoming..rooms light and clean...location good for what we wanted We enjoyed our stay but found the lack of tea making facilities in rooms not good for us. The food was lovely but too much and too late for us. There was no access to English news....everything in French...the access to internet poor in the rooms. Not complaints observations.
Very good standard of accomodation, great atmosphere and excellent restaurant.
Very nice people. A bit difficult speaking English, but enough to get by. The hotel was very modern, and one of the nicest we stayed in during our trip!
Surprisingly chic inside the hotel. Outside it looked pretty ordinary and uninspiring. We didn't eat in the hotel but this is the major attraction. Good location for the Chateau at Chambord and Blois. Would return if we are ever in that location again.
Friendliness of staff no
We loved this hotel, clean, modern, friendly. Near chambord so not around the hotel but it was quiet and really nice.
The hotel is excellent, the staff is friendly, the rooms are very nice and the food is fantastic
The room was really nice and the people very friendly. We were advised to go to a restaurant in the village only to find it was closed every Monday which was the day we were there. Having said that we would happily return if in the area.
We had a gorgeous room in this B&B and the couple who owned it were fantastic - very helpful and genuinely nice people.
Our room was very comfortable and clean. The owner was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for places to visit and recommendations for places to eat. It was a great base to explore the many chateaux of the region. A very enjoyable few days stay. We would certainly return if we were in this region again.
Very good and excellent cuisine. none
Very attractive buildings set in pleasant countryside close to Cheverny. Our room (in the Vestry annexe) was new and very well appointed and had air conditioning. Restaurant was excellent, though with no choice of menu. Good wines. Attentive service. Price was at the high end for this hotel.
Friendly staff, nice location and good food
A very pleasant and convenient base to explore the Loire valley. Carrying luggage up a spiral staircase to the top floor, limited choice evening meal.
We wanted to be in a central location to visit a variety of chateaus and cathedrals and this was convenient and had free parking. Our room was quite distance from the chateau in a converted farm outbuilding. Very cramped and very poor ventilation. Entry drive in very poor shape.
pleasant manager, small, quiet, fair cost
This is a hotel with basic facilities, but very clean and with an excellent location. Staff very friendly, very willing to accommodate you. A special mention for David who was very helpful and kind. Very quiet place, for a perfect night sleep between visiting the castles in the Loire's Valley. The major addition to what the hotel is offering now would be the internet connection, a permanent TV schedule (TV was on and off during our stay there, off especially during the night) and improved breakfast choices.
nice vilage, close to Chambord castle,easy access to Blois,new hotel,friendly staf No
Very clean, spacious room. Tranquil setting. Excellent breakfast. The proprietor was very friendly and most helpful. Well located for exploring area.
We thoroughly enjoyed the location of the hotel and the cleanliness and very comfortable beds. Also the fact that the owner was waiting to meet us even though we didn't arrive until after 8.30pm which was a lot later than we had expected. The breakfast room wasn't very inviting and the breakfasts were not very inspiring, however they were not charging too much for the breakfasts so I supposed you pay for what you get.
Very good for a 1 night stop over, good bars and restaurants within walking distance. We turned up late (9 p.m.) and the guy on receptions was very accomodating.
Clean room and friendly manager. Breakfast ok not very exciting. No tea and coffee making facility in room. No hairdryer.
Room: simple furnishings, but everything very clean and with large comfortable bed (recent development, so everything new and working as it should). In quiet, pleasant surroundings, set back from main road. Rooms to rear have view over large pond, some with terrace/balcony. Well-placed for visiting Chambord, Blois, Chaumont, and many other interesting places in east Loire Valley. Didn't take advantage of the optional extra of breakfast, but saw the remains of the buffet,and didn't think that it looked worth the 8 E charge, (although I accept that this is an avarage price for similar meals elsewhere).
Because of our roadchoice through this landscape
Peaceful situation, large room, good breakfasts, well situated for the Loire Valley. Modern bathroom, comfortable beds. Nice garden. Nuclear power station nearby. Room rather sparsely furnished - no armchair.
No restaurant , superb view and proximity with a nuclear centrale.
Warm atmosphere, very welcoming
pleasant staff, location to Chambord and highway was excellent
You are welcomed by friendly staff and the rooms are large and very clean. There is a garage where you can put your bike, which is locked at night. The jam at breakfast is home-made. Though the decor is a little outdated, the warmth of the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms and renovated bathrooms give this hotel its charm.
Very friendly and helpfull staff/owner
An inexpensive yet good quality hotel with friendly staff
staff, and breakfast old building, need some repairs
Quiet, nice small hotel with its own specific atmosphere, excellent services and management. Friendly approach to guests. Very good breakfast . May be some renovation would be useful but I am sure the management will be able to do it
