Very good and excellent cuisine. none
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.
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
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.
Staff sympathy was the high point. The garden is also very nice and has many types of fruit trees, giving the possibility to taste them directly from the tree. In the site they mention that hotel localization is around 7 km from the Chambourd Castel, but this is about 17 km. They present the Hotel as a Castle but this is more a farm like house, very hard to find by car.
Warm atmosphere, very welcoming
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
pleasant staff, location to Chambord and highway was excellent
No restaurant , superb view and proximity with a nuclear centrale.
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 Though the decor is a little outdated, the warmth of the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms and renovated bathrooms give this hotel its charm.
An inexpensive yet good quality hotel with friendly staff
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.
Very friendly and helpfull staff/owner
Because of our roadchoice through this landscape
staff, and breakfast old building, need some repairs
Helpful and thoughtful staff at this basic but comfortable and well situated Logis
the staff were very friendly and the location is excellent
Very clean, nice size rooms. Excellent bike rental at extremely good price. Very VERy uncomfortable bed. Worst nights sleep in years. Furniture and decor very spartan and drab.
Good location, in town so could get about on foot, lovely small French town, found chocolate shop open till 7pm. A few places to eat in town. Five of us in one room with mattress on floor for youngest. Dated and not at all flashy but functional and cheap, and a good stopover for the chateaux.
Very clean, new room in a small house behind the main building, well located near Châteaux, restaurant across the street is excellent. Swimming pool available, very quiet
Large room, freedom, quiet, secure parking & good breakfast.
Good location for visting the chateaux to the east of the Loire Valley. Good bedroom and shower room and appreciated the swimming pool. Breakfast was reasonably priced. Bracieux had a good selection of restaurants, all walkable from the Logis. I would recommend Le Rendez-vous des Gourmets but you must book in August. No tea or coffee facilities or fridge in room but they did have a communal fridge available which was helpful.
Comfortable hotel, good breakfast, and the swimming pool very welcome at the end of a long day on the road. None
Although staff spoke little English, they were very helpful and accommodating.
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.
excellent staff and very helpfull.
Great quiet setting, and outstanding interest by staff Had to go outside for dinner
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.
Professional staff, friendly, welcoming and accommadating. Especially appreciated the straight forward carte menu. Would go again. Although comfortable the bathroom could be updated.
Friendly welcome, excellent cuisine, beautiful garden, swimming pool and quiet setting No
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.
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.
we have stayed there before and like it very much it is a great shame that they have closed there restaurant
The setting in the woods and the hospitality from the pesonnel.
Excellent location on the way South, with a good restaurant
Friendly helpful staff. Superb evening meal. Good parking.
On arrival, we were told we could not dine in the castle because a wedding was taking place. The hotel bar has several drinks listed on their menu that were no longer available. Finally, the rooms had only baths with no shower except for a hand-held one for which no shower rail was available.
Beautiful Hotel.Fabulous setting. Food was expensive and is supposed to be gastronomic, it wasn't. Service was poor. Near main road so get rooms at back of hotel.
Attractive building with interesting furnishings and in a spectacular location. The food was very good and the staff attentive. There were very few staff on duty and we needed to find someone to serve a drink before dinner.
Lovely bathroom. Good restaurant - fairly priced. Travelling with our dog and they were very accommodating. Room was up in the hotel attic which made it seem rather small. Toilet was very small - stuck in the eaves and in need to redecoration (hole in the wall). Asked to change room - happy to pay extra to upgrade - but they were full.
Very nice dinner at the restaurant; good value, quality Rooms were simple, not well equipped by today's standards.
very well situated to visit chambord and blois, very calm. the bed could have been more large and comfortable.
This hotel proved to be a good value for the money. The bed we stayed in was unbelievably comfortable! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the region--a delightful experience!!
Very nice hotel with quiet comfortable rooms. The meal was excellent. Close to several famous chateaux.
Location Shower cubicle was too small (26 inches x 26 inches)
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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).
Clean room and friendly manager. Breakfast ok not very exciting. No tea and coffee making facility in room. No hairdryer.
Very clean, spacious room. Tranquil setting. Excellent breakfast. The proprietor was very friendly and most helpful. Well located for exploring area.
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.
pleasant manager, small, quiet, fair cost
