Location Food was poor compared with previous years - new chef?
The restaurant is very good. The rooms are somewhat dated.
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.
lovely location in a pretty town, kind staff, professional
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.
Reception did not open until 730
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.
Very central. Rom was a good size. Nothing
Very riendly staff and good, comfortable, quiet rooms. We recommend.
The location and the staff The bed was old, lumpy and very uncofrtable.
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.
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.
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.
we have stayed there before and like it very much it is a great shame that they have closed there restaurant
Friendly welcome, excellent cuisine, beautiful garden, swimming pool and quiet setting No
excellent staff and very helpfull.
Nicley situated on the River Loire, lovely medieval feel to the area
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.
Very nice old world appeal-we took photo's of the distintive hallway and staircase.
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.
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.
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
The children enjoyed the golf facilities
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.
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
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.
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.
The food was excellent in restaurant, views across golf course, bedrooms and price of overnight stay. The slow service in the restaurant.
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.
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.
We had a gorgeous room in this B&B and the couple who owned it were fantastic - very helpful and genuinely nice people.
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.
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.
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
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).
pleasant manager, small, quiet, fair cost
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.
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.
the staff were very friendly and the location is excellent
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.
Large room, freedom, quiet, secure parking & good breakfast.
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
Although staff spoke little English, they were very helpful and accommodating.
Helpful and thoughtful staff at this basic but comfortable and well situated Logis
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.
Comfortable hotel, good breakfast, and the swimming pool very welcome at the end of a long day on the road. None
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.
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
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.
No restaurant , superb view and proximity with a nuclear centrale.
Because of our roadchoice through this landscape
staff, and breakfast old building, need some repairs
Very friendly and helpfull staff/owner
Warm atmosphere, very welcoming
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.
pleasant staff, location to Chambord and highway was excellent
The setting in the woods and the hospitality from the pesonnel.
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.
Excellent location on the way South, with a good restaurant
Friendly helpful staff. Superb evening meal. Good parking.
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.
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.
