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.
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.
Room finished to high standard, showers superb, restaurant menu wonderful, service & staff friendliness excellent 3 visits and nothing to criticise
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.
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.
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.
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
the room was very well decorated, the bed was comfortable and the shower room was modern and attractive, the room was small.
Hot drink offered until 10pm. Fresh orange juice for breakfast ! switch on the light for the bedroom and the bathroom. No possibility to light only the bed. Room is really small. I was alone but this room had a double bed + an extra one. 3 person cannot fit into this room. Everything is design and fashion but the space is to tight (at least for me)
The staff were friendly and helpful.The breakfast facilities were very good. The car park was large and close to the hotel. The room was spotless. The only negative aspect was that the room was very small, almost to the point of being uncomfortable.
We needed a room for 5 and usually end up very squashed. This hotel had a double room and then another room off of it with 3 beds for the kids. All very spacious and very clean. Excellent stopover whne travelling further south in France. None
Very very good. Lovely building, excellent rooms, great breakfast, very welcoming (good English!) in a charming little town. Wish we'd stayed there longer. Will definitely go there again.
Hotel was well placed, breakfast was good enough and I would happily stay there again Lift was very small as was shower. Glad I only weigh 13 stone
Good location, friendly staff, recently refurbished clean rooms. No air con or fans in rooms. Rooms were quite hot and stuffy.
The room was spacious and airy and the shower was brilliant. There was a secure car park at the rear of the hotel with lots of space. Very close to the town shops and square, and the river (Loire). Very quiet location and I would go again.
The staff Lack of sevices, there was only one member of staff on duty at any time. That person had to do all the duties, Clean, Cook and look after everything. The hotel was closed from mid day to late afternoon and then from 10-30 each night.
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
Not interested in golf this trip, but liked the surroundings The "Chateau" was not quite up to the pictures on the Internet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
I have nothing to say ; all was brilliant ; I hope I'll come back sometime
Very clean room with ample space. Not only did the bells at the very close church ring every hour all through the night, But they rang twice! Once at around 5mins past the hour and then again a few minutes later! So loud it was impossible to sleep through. Not suitable for anyone who needs to be alert enough to drive long distances the next day.
We had a three bed room - very comfortable and clean. Tea and coffee plus biscuits in room. Restaurant is also good value and food is excellent. Breakfast is an additional payment, but reasonable.
The hotel is very comfortable and the restaurant is excellent
We were very happy with our room-the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was good no
Excellent personal service No
The owners were extremely friendly and the dinner was excellent Nothng
It's a lovely homely place to stay with excellent food and service
Friendly hostess/waitress. Easy parking. Quiet location. Tea/coffee making facility with good variety of drinks. Separate w.c. and bathroom. Good for overnight stop. Comfortable beds, plenty of bedding. Very small twin room, narrow beds. Bathroom door could not open fully. Very disappointed with meal after the rave reviews. Chef was on holiday and it showed. We got defrosted commercially frozen starters. Same commercial sauce served with first and second course. Ridiculously tiny portions of vegetables (Dessertspoon of duchesse potato - again frozen) One very small dessert, the other one was a much larger tarte which was good. Would only recommend or return if we knew chef/owner was going to be present. TV didn't work on English channel.
Excellent food, very pleasant room for the price. Having to give them my credit card number. I dislike this system, much open to abuse.
Friendliness of the proprietors they were welcoming and keen to help Hardness of the mattress
Nice and friendly no
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 nice typicallly french hotel in the centre of a small town with excellent food
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.
Comfort,good food and wine ,easy access,welcoming staff at a reasonable price.
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.
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.
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.
