It was empty, and, for France, relativly cheap. But I am sure that both of these are because of the season.
The hotel was gorgeous. The landscaping really takes you away to another world. Very serene & relaxing. The pond and the waterfall give it a storybook feel. We got the family room which was great for 4 adults and one small child who shared king size bed with parents. FYI: Top bunk has a max weight of 50 kilos. Playground and pool a plus if you have children. Also, zoo borders property. Got the buffet dinner at restaurant. Appetizers salads & deserts where amazing. The cooked/hot food was a bit disapointing. Beef was chewy, chicken cold and dry. Website said room was for 3 adults and one child so I paid 20euros for an extra bed. When I got there and asked about extra bed they said they didn't have one. I explained I paid extra and they said that was for having an additional adult, not for extra bed. Felt a bit cheated. You're a captive audience since there is no village withing walking distance.
The sleeping facilities, the water around with all the ducks and frogs No eating "a la carte" after 21h15. After a long day work (we were there for business), we did not want to eat from the buffet and it was 21h17 and they made no exception :-(
Helpful friendly staff. Clean room, excellent food
Beautiful setting in the Loire valley and with hotel units built in Bali style around a lovel lake. Staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant buffet was fantastic, the outdoor swimming pool lovely. Fabulous place and we would definitely stay again and for longer. Wi-Fi didn't work in our room.
Lovely designs based in Bali with many woodcarvings and koi carp, large rooms and a warm swimming pool, the buffet dinner was plentiful and delicious.
Good size family accomodation with good ensuite bathroom facilities and quality furniture. Lovely swimming pool and the opening times worked well for us as a family especially when we had been out for the day, as there was still time for tea and a swim before bedtime. The towel rail worked well for getting everyone's swimming stuff dry overnight for swimming again the next day. Loved the pond setting with the turtles, fish and ducks. We stayed in lots of different accomodation in France, but yours was our favourite hotel. No kettle, tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. We stayed in lots of places, and yours was the only one that didn't have this. The coffee in the vending machine was horrible, and there was no tea or hot chocolate alternative. Kettles in the rooms would be a big improvement, with drinks made to our own taste - not worrying if we'd got change for the machine, and feeling more relaxed that can just make a drink when you want one without having to get dressed and leave your room. Breakfast costs for a family were very expensive, more than other places.
Nice surroundings, very nice and thoughtful landlady, tasty french breakfast, something like a zoo around the building (lamas, horses, peacocks E.T.C.). We didn't test the waterpool because of weather, but it really exists. WiFi signal was quite weak in our room, at the same time it was perfect into the common room next to ours (seems like the walls are too thick). But since we were almost alone in this building - it was Ok.
It was out in the country - when we woke up we could see the horses in the meadow. The rooms were lovely, the owner was very friendly and we had a wonderful stay even though the weather did not allow for use of the pool. It was a great place from which to visit the chateaux. It was a bit hard to find and like most of the hotels in France, the tub would benefit with the addition of a shower curtain.
We wanted a hotel centrally located in the Loire Valley with lots of French charm. If you love the country side, this place is convenient for going east or west in Loire to visit the chateaux, with other local options such as: hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, hot air ballooning, etc. Our room was very spacious. No A/C, but it doesn't matter, the room was comfortably cool. Our bathroom had a bath tub with a hand held shower, not unlike many hotels in Europe. I highly recommend this chateau. Staff is very accommodating. You might want to brush up on your French! Americans would probably call it a B & B. Free wireless Wi-Fi in sitting area. The night sky with the stars is absolutely amazing. Works for families &/or romantics.
Absolutely too cool to stay at an old chateau. None.
Staying in the main chateau was fantastic - a real treat. The room was a family room and it was very spacious. Four poster bed, full access to swimming pool and grounds. The children particularly liked the animals in the grounds. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Not applicable.
Excellent location. Very good to examine the region. Large room with nice service. There is no restaurant in the hotel (the near one is 3 minutes drive).
This place is categorically not an Hotel! It is an impressive chateaux set in very nice gounds where ther are chalets for family occupation and a vatiety of animals - good fun if that's what you want. However what we wanted was a comforatble 'hotel' in which to stay with all the usual 'hotel' facilities and that's what we thought we had booked. What we got was a basic room, with a basic continental breakfast for how much? €125! No bar, no restaurant, and several Km into town for something to eat after driving all day. No wonder it is not listed anywhere else as a 'hotel' and why my satnav showed the location as the middle of a field!
The owner was very friendly & helpful. The room was comfortable for a family of 4. Delicious breakfast!
Very quiet, chaming and great place. We took our pre-wedding photos at the chateau. All of the photos are beautiful and we have excellent experience.
Beautiful building in a beautiful setting. The owner was very helpful and waited for us even after the check in time. There is a list of restaurants available for the evening and breakfast is included. The hotel is very quiet and in a park with animals to see. We did not use the swimming pool only because of the weather!
Everthing about the place we enjoyed We ate in the restaurant and strangely we were asked before we ordered if we would like dessert
Being able to park directly outside the room. Convenient location, both for the old town centre and the new commercial shopping centre. Room a little on the small size. No international TV channels other than BBC News.
nice location breakfast was a bit of a bun fight.
Convenience of location,superb hotel and friendly staff
Loches is a quaint medieval town; like a more northern sarlat; The motel units have good views of valley; there is excellent car parking outside the unit and location is quite convenient to the town and main roads out of town. Restaurant has good reputation but we could not get in: Motel units are cramped and can get hot:
Excellent Restaurant. Interesting town. Location map on website is incorrect. Hotel is shown as centre of town and was therefore difficult to find.
Excellent quality hotel, good service & value. n/a
Restaurant very good. Reception staff spoke good English and helpful Bedrooms rather small. Beds cofortable. Bathroom OK
friendly, helpful reception staff. Very nice dining room with real log fire. My husband liked the pool. Quiet situation. Super outlook. Long steep walk from Loches centre. The main course of the evening meal was disappointing every time. On our last night we paid a supplement and chose from a better menu. Would recommend this. Wine was good.
Comfortable and and very good restaurant Being accommodated a walk from main building during inclement weather
Good central location. Great stairwell. Like everywhere, pillows were not very good.
The building was charming and we liked the historical aspects of it. Great location. Having to carry bags up 2 flights of stairs! Ok for younger people, but narrow and uneven steps did not help. The shower in he bathtub could prove a problem for people with limited mobility. However, all can be understood when onen considers the age of the hotel. Rooms on street a bit noisy, ask for a river view room.
The location was ideal- right in the centre of Loches. Lovely to stroll from the hotel up the cobbled medieval streets (filled with boutique type shops) to the walled citadel.Lovely dining room with huge roaring fire. Delicious food including amuses- bouches. Very family atmosphere as they are obviously a family running this hotel. Full of charm if a little shabby chic.Excellent value for money at E46 per night (October). Heater didnt work in our room but when we approached the reception, they immediately came up to check it out, then moved us to another room. No hassle.Narrow stone staircase could be a problem for the elderly or those with large bags, but for us it added to the charm of the place. Its medieval!
The very original ancient stone spiral staircase, the views over the river and the accessibility of the town.
Nice location, helpful staff. That breakfast bar is not free, watch out!
Beer on the terrace after arrival Pretentious dinner, oversalted, waited 1hr 20 mins for 1st course, food v. indifferent, kept in oven so overheated, staff in kitchen obviously could not cope, bread poorly cut, uneven size and not fresh, poor value for money.
the evening meal, and the aspect from the enclosed terraced restaurant I could not find any English language channel on the TV - and there was a presidential election on!
Splendid location with closeby parking and bars/restaurants within easy walking.
Friendliness and helpfulness of owners, proximity to City
Being so close to the beautiful town of Loches and the river.
The location is marvellous for exploring Loches - especially the citadel. It is very close to the centre, yet, because the rooms are mostly arranged round a courtyard, it's very quiet. The hotel has character and charm because of its age. The owner/manager was very helpful and spoke excellent English. The hotel is used to English guests. The accommodation is awkward because of the building's age. Our room was split-level : bathroom and clothes-hanging (no wardrobe/closet) downstairs, bedroom and toilet (no basin) upstairs. The bedroom ceiling was very low, beamed and sloping, so there was danger of cracking your head every time you got into/out of bed. The service at dinner - served in a cool, quiet courtyard - was terribly slow. They forgot our dessert entirely, and, despite requests for it, it arrived nearly an hour after our main course. But they did apologise, and everyone else seemed to be served in a timely manner.
The warmth of the staff, a nice welcome, they remembered us from 2 years ago. Right in town with a car park, close to all the medieval buildings. Room a little rustic but still comfortable - quaint is a good descrition.
I liked the location , parking, lovely dining room, Grand facade. Our room was in converted sheds at read of the small hotel. There are outside stairs in very poor condition leading to the rooms at the rear. Our room was on two floors. A hall and bathroom (without wc), downstairs. Up a very narrow stairs leading o a small bedroom. there is a toilet enclosed in the corner of the room. This does not contain a sink. The ceiling of the wc slopes, and made it impossible to use while standing. There is ample space to have the toilet on the lower floor with the sink. Anyone carring luggage will find the two sets of stairs difficult.
We liked the City of Loches The Annexe rooms were a great disappointment compared with other Logis hotels we used this vacation
Dinner in the old courtyard was excellent. The breakfast served at the table in the charming dining room was also very pleasant.
