"Quite a Walk from Town"
While the property is absolutely beautiful the location when not driving made it a little bit of a hike from the nearest tram station - all up hill to boot! Is was possible to walk to the city area, but took was about a 45 min. hike to the tourism office. A little bigger room/bathroom which was nice. Very modern decor with a bonus of a 2 burner hot plate and small sink so if you were inclined to make something you had that option.
"Some things missing"
The hotel is situated inside a huge garden, a bit outside the city centre. That is the main reason I chose it. But I was somewhat disappointed. First of all, the outside building needs some renovation. Rooms are new but I did not find them elegant. Some amenities, such as iron and ironing table, fridge, cuttlery and tea in rooms. Very good breakfast, excellent restaurant. Inside Pool and parking facilities. Reception desk somewhat unhelpful and bureaucratic, not more. All in all, somewhat disappointing.
"Spectacular !! rooms and restaurant"
An very exclusive place !!! A musr. Bedrooms are so cosy you want to spend time there trying the living room and bathtub and everything. Than the restaurant - just amazing from beginning to end - so many different flavours, so good and just extraoradinary. And then ... the whisky and cigar .... everything was just so good, so perfect.
"Lovely little French retreat "
The hotel is set in a gorgeous green backdrop, hidden away from the business of the town. It is a bit of a walk from the attractions of Tours but definitely worth if. I was pleasantly surprised by the size of the bedroom and bathroom. There was a huge tub and shower which is very unusual for French hotels. The room had lots of extra amenities including a kitchenette. The hotel grounds were beautiful, with secluded spots to enjoy the ambience. There was an indoor pool and spa. The on site restaurant had a good view and wide range of decently priced wines. The only downside was that breakfast wasn't included in the room rate, and was a little overpriced to pay for separately. However everything else was excellent. Pleasant staff. Good value for money. Beautiful hotel. Highly recommended.
"Excellent all around; not your typical USA Clarion"
Stayed for 2 nights while touring Loire Valley. First, Clarion in the US is a mid-priced Holiday Inn express, Comfort Inn, etc. type hotel. Clean but inexpensive. Here it is definitiely a four-star hotel. (They even mentioned they know of the disconnect with the US image and may change their affiliation.) Regardless, this was very nice. We stayed in the original building and liked the decor. Rooms are bigger than typical french hotel rooms, very nicely appointed; rooms not all the same. They also have two newer buildings and those rooms are, I'm told, bigger and also nice (but I didn't see them from the inside). Had dinner there twice. Definitely french cooking, very tasty and nicely displayed. Prices were reasonable (I was afraid they'd be much higher). excellent service, not rushed. Breakfast (make sure it is included) was also a nice buffet of what you'd think of a in Europe. (The maple syrup was real, I don't see that very often.) Pretty grounds. The drive in makes you wonder where you are going (twisty roads thru old part of residential area), but don't fret.$175/night with breakfast. Dinners were 90-100 euros (2 people, 2 courses, bottle of wine).
