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
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.
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.
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.
excellent staff and very helpfull.
Professional staff, friendly, welcoming and accommadating. Especially appreciated the straight forward carte menu. Would go again. Although comfortable the bathroom could be updated.
Great quiet setting, and outstanding interest by staff Had to go outside for dinner
Very friendly and helpful staff and management, excellent food, comfortable rooms and charming atmosphere.
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.
lovely location in a pretty town, kind staff, professional
Location Food was poor compared with previous years - new chef?
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.
Very central. Rom was a good size. Nothing
Very riendly staff and good, comfortable, quiet rooms. We recommend.
The restaurant is very good. The rooms are somewhat dated.
Reception did not open until 730
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.
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.
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
a bit old fashioned. Needs some refurnishing.
Staff was friendly Bathroom smelled horrible. Bad ventilation.
This is not a renovated hotel and the beds are not that confortable....
It had nice rooms and the food was good.
Hotel Staff was very helpful and friendness. The room was very clean and includes good bathroom (WC was separated) with big tab. Nothing.
The hotel was very conveniently situated. A very enjoyable visit.
Very nice old world appeal-we took photo's of the distintive hallway and staircase.
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.
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 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.
Old interesting place Beds are a bit soggy
Nicley situated on the River Loire, lovely medieval feel to the area
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.
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.
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.
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.
Good site on the river, easy access to local restaurants. We were there for a single overnight stay and only met two of the staff, both were friendly and helpful Considering the rating and price for the hotel we were not impressed by the room. However many of the previous hotel reviews had been quite positive so it could be we were just unlucky in the room allocation – room 101. It was sparse and noisy, and the walls not very effective in noise reduction.
Clean and comfortable A bit pricey for what it is. Its a 50 euro hotel not a 77euro
Quiet location, gardens down to a Loire footpath , comfortable good size room and a fine breakfast.
Nice location but thats all No proper bar or restaurant facilities
Very Pleased. The staff is nice and easy going.
Clean modern rooms and a very good breakfast served by pleasant staff. Plenty of parking for car.
The Orleans Parc was like finding a little gem on a jouney break! It's lovely. The gentleman at reception was lovely and has been more than helpful in finding a dropped wallet! The gardens looking out over the river are superb and a great surprise being so near the motorway! Nice restaurants nearby made this hotel one to return to.
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!
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.
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
The children enjoyed the golf facilities
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 food was excellent in restaurant, views across golf course, bedrooms and price of overnight stay. The slow service in the restaurant.
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.
Nice setup and facilities. Bathroom moldy.
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.
The room The service in the restaurant was very poor and the steak served cold then reheated in a microwave.
New comfortable beds, large flat screen TV, very clean, excellent management and staff, good restaurant, very friendly welcome. Great meal, great breakfast and an excellent night sleep !!!! Usual situation of these hotels situated in industrial estates but convenient for motorways !
Room very satisfactory for overnight stay. Also included coffee/tea making facility and hair-drier !! Nothing
The staff were efficient and helpful. The location was convenient. The rooms were unbearably hot and there was no means of cooling them down. A fan would have been useful. Coffee and tea making facilities were scant, Plastic mini cups were almost a waste of time. and only one useable teabag, the other being a mint one, yuck.
Friendly and efficient staff,clean room,modern electric appliances, good quality food, ease of access to motorway,
Clean hotel, good breakfast, friendly service.
Secure parking and comfortable room. I've stayed here before, but this time the retaurant was fully booked and ther lounge area unavaiable as it had been block booked by a group. Rather disapointing as we were looking forward to using these facilities.
Very comfortable night spent at this hotel. Even though it was not busy the restaurant delivered a very good meal.
Staff were welcoming and friendly and the service in the restaurant was also good. Parking was secure.
Efficient and cheap. En route. Plenty of choice Rooms a little small, otherwise excelelnt
Excellent location on the way South, with a good restaurant
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.
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.
The setting in the woods and the hospitality from the pesonnel.
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.
Very nice dinner at the restaurant; good value, quality Rooms were simple, not well equipped by today's standards.
Friendly helpful staff. Superb evening meal. Good parking.
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.
Because of our roadchoice through this landscape
staff, and breakfast old building, need some repairs
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.
Very friendly and helpfull staff/owner
Warm atmosphere, very welcoming
An inexpensive yet good quality hotel with friendly staff
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
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.
This hotel answerred exactly to my demand. Centrally placed towards the city of Orleans, the staff is very nice and the restaurant is good.
What a pleasure to find a French hotel with comfortable rooms, well lit, soft pillows, lift that works, staff who care, wide corridors so that one can carry a suitcase, a grab handle in the bath, a mirror in the bedroom and enough space to walk around the bed. A complimentary bottle of evian water in the room and tea and coffee available 24/7. We travel through Orleans often and will return to this hotel time and again.
Good location close to the motorway. Nice rooms and good breakfast with helpful staff. Would recommend. Have stopped at several All Seasons and now not quite the value for money they were.
close to highway and restaurants - clean rooms - breakfast - reception 24/24 + free the or coffee - excellent quality/price - free wifi and internet access
Good location, close to motorway. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant served good food at reasonable prices.
some staff were helpfull some were rather non plus
Great bed!, the family room is perfect when travelling with children, two connected rooms....
only stop one night had a lovely time would stop again
Rooms reasonable (thank goodness for air conditioning!), bed good, bathroom fair, receptionist on second visit (night of 24 Aug) very pleasant, breakfast good. More expensive than other hotels in near vicinity, receptionist on first night had no English at all (night of 15 Aug)
Location to the motorway. Just your average lodge type hotel, ideal for a stopover point, but nothing special and rooms are overcrowded with furniture.
Friendly, helpful welcome in fluent English. An excellent nearby restaurant was recommended for dinner. Very easy access to the town. Comfortable room and a good breakfast. No
Hotel manager was excellent - helpful and kind.
Location was good The bathrooms were poor and looked like they had been forced into already small rooms
Breakfast and the dining room were superb;location excellent but bedroom facilities coud have been better.
The location was superb, the hotel had everything required for an overnight stay although I must say the bathroom definately needed an update. Just the bathroom !
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.
