Houve um erro na reserva, reservei dois quartos e somente um estava disponível quando cheguei a meia noite. Foi adaptado um quarto pra 4 muito pequeno, muito sujo, cheirando a cigarro. Foi uma grande decepção. As pessoas foram amáveis. Quando chegamos havia um hospede com um cachorro gigante. Os quartos cheiravam mal, o hotel precisa de uma limpeza geral. Não recomendo.
Large bedroom. Dark depressing room with tired furnishings. Needs some tlc.
I liked the quiet situation and the feeling of peace. The staff were friendly and the room quiet and comfortable. The water pressure was excellent. The food was good and salad and vegetables were included, so healthy. The toilet was very narrow and unventilated.
A lovely room - sympathetically restored & appointed
The natural setting, the quiet, and the service by he staff We had a difficult time finding it. GPS coordinates would help
The hotel had a lovely garden out the back which would be great if you are travelling with children or wanted to relax with a book under the tree. The staff were quite incompetent and unfriendly. We had specifically requested a double bed when we originally booked and were told that they didn't have any double rooms available so we had to stay in two single beds! They did not even offer to push the beds together to and make it as one double. There wasn't much information on the Loire Valley at the hotel. Only really Chinon. It took quite a bit of time to get to Blois and Chambord. We estimate 1 and a half hours so if you're going just for the weekend we'd suggest staying closer to that area. Also we booked this hotel because it had WIFI but it did not work in our room.
I loved this place. Peaceful, charming, clean. The staff were wonderful. Close enough to other villages and chateaus but far enough out to enjoy nature. Very Peaceful. If you prefer to stay in the restaurant was very good. Can't think of one thing I didn't like.
The hotel is an attractive old manor the rooms had been refurbished and were of good size clean comportable breakfast buffet excellent. The resaurant is closed on fris Sat and Sunday we would not have booked if we had known this as we had to drive to town for dinner.If this is important to you check before booking. Also unable to pay by card as his machine was not working elderly man on reception unhelpful and demanded cash when a phone call could have put it rightwe were not only ones with this problem.
A hotel of great character in a good setting. The evening meal was lovely and the breakfast was good. Not much sound proofing between rooms.
Very beautiful place, excellent hotel for spending some nice days in calm The only thing that was not perfect is the breakfast.
This was our 3rd visit so we knew what to expect and weren't disappointed, except by the fact that during our stay (Sat/Sun) the restaurant was closed.
Very quite country location, good welcome and choice of rooms. Big room. Rooms and furnishings are old rather than the implied antique.
This must be the best positioned hotel in Chinon and the surrounding area. The square with its dining facilities and interesting shops are a huge draw for us whenever we are in the area.
lack of air conditioning
Nice old building friendly service The noise late at night when the adjacent restaurants where packing up there tables and chairs in the square in front of the hotel.
Nice quiet room. Private parking available (useful when you arrive, but there is a free carpark a few minutes walk away). Good central position in town. Restaurant was closed Sunday and Monday eves. Breakfast selection was not very good value for money - there is a cafe 2 minutes down the road which provided what we required for half the price. Hotel states that free wifi is available in all rooms - not accurate! We had to use our laptop in the hotel reception or corridor. Suggest you ask for a suitable room if this is important to you.
Not a lot apart from the cleanliness of the room, very impressed with that. Lack of information about facilities ie: tea, coffee in hotel room, available free of charge if we asked for a tray, instead we were charged for every cup of tea, not realising the difference. Staff were very off hand in the first two days, not pleasant at all. second roster had much better staff. Would not return to this hotel.
OK, we got a deal on price. But the room was very tiny and the noise from the street was mind boggling starting at 4:30am. Steep stairs added to the fun. But staff was wonderful just wouldn't get the cheap room again.
Location No vegetarian selection on the restaurant menu
Great location and very friendly staff. Room was very dated and bathroom was small.
Really friendly and help full staff, very clean and nicely decorated
The location in a quiet and pleasant square No view from bedroom
The service and pleasantness of staff. The availability of good restaurant facilities. There was inadequate space for the storage and hanging of clothes. We had to keep most in our suitcases, taking up floor space. The lighting avialable in the room was poor, though one appreciates the intention to reduce energy use.
The hotel was cheap The room was extremely shabby with very poor decoration and furniture
Center of town Lack of Restaurant and bar on Sunday
Location-Central location in Chinon Wifi worked Ample free car parking Breakfast range and facilties very limited in comparision to other hotels of similar price Room sparsley equiped and furnished
Simple, well placed. Personnel very simpatetic. Cleanning well done, lcd tv. Bedroom cushion uncomfortable, wifi not working in my floor. After requested to the front desk to fix it, answer was that the problem was my computer...so everyday I had to go downstairs and conect to another hotspot in the same hotel, outsode my room. So the problem was not in my computer. So a bit more attention was missing here.
good location for the old town breakfast poor value for money, in depressing surroundings. pain au chocolate were like biscuits, limited choice for 8 euros. bedding in room poor, blankets are unsuitable, shower flooded out of the bathroom onto the carpet.
breakfast was good but would have preferred cheese/ham or eggs with the rolls as do not like jam/cereals so just had a bread roll and was not worth the price..
Very clean sheets and Hot water. Great Evening meal The proprietor has a very good business running the hotel as a resturant in the evening and a cafe in the morning. Its very popular and busy and they take great pride in it Breakfast a bit expensive and not extensive enough, but nice enviroment to eat in. I got up late so I may have missed out !
I've stayed at the Lion d'Or three times now. I like that it is very close to the centre of Chinon, it has parking very close by and it is easy to find. The location is excellent. The rooms are basic but reasonably comfortable and not as small as some you find. It is a good stopover hotel for travelling from the Channel ports to the south or on the trip back. For me, it is important that the hotel welcomes pets, we like to take our dogs on holiday.
Small very Friendly good location, you can walk around town
Nice, comfortable, clean room on a quiet back street. Easy walk to old town area and the castle. Breakfast was great and staff very gracious. A little hard to find.
very friendly staff. Wonderful breakfast
The staff were excellent, very friendly and welcoming. Hotel setting was beautiful; lovely courtyard, pretty garden and patio, a little retreat from the town. Rooms full of antique furniture, and excellent continental breakfast. And good value for money. Nothing - would have liked a room overlooking the courtyard (larger and lighter), but they were all gone!
The management staff (3 siblings who are the owners) were extremely accommodating and helpful. And funny and friendly, too. They run a good comfortable hotel in a great location. Chinon is a small town, but interesting. Nothing.
Warmth of staff and personnel, a very enjoyable stay. No, comment, Hotel difficult to find, perhaps more signs.
Staff, room, breakfast were all excellent. Fun & accomodating employees. Very helpful. Liked everything.
quiet hotel situated close to the town centre. the hotel had some character as it was an old house.
The country-like setting in the middle Chinon was amazing. Felt like staying in a park with all the beatiful blooming flowers.
The hotel location, teh staff and the ease of access to the town centre. Bearkfast too expensive and little choice.
