My wife and I stayed at this hotel in mid-April. The owner of the hotel was frequently in the lobby making sure that guests had were content and to provide information. The front desk spoke fluent English and always had a smile and helpful information. Portions of the hotel have historic interest particularly the art on the ceilings above the staircase.
There is a single elevator in the hotel so there are occasional slow-ups. The room was clean, well equipped with wireless and a flat screen TV. Our room was located on the Loire River side of the hotel and the view at sunset or sunrise was really quite beautiful. We left the window open at night and were rarely disturbed by the street traffic below. There is a wardrobe in the room which could easily accommodate all our clothes. We enjoyed the included breakfast which went far beyond the usual breakfast in France and included hot dishes, as well as lovely croissants, teas, coffees, yoghurts, cereals, fruit and cheeses. A good start to the day.
The center of town is about a ten minute walk from the hotel. In general the town is easily walkable. There are quite a few excellent restaurants in the area around the town square. One morning we went for a walk and ended up at the Combier Distillery where Triple Sec originated - its about a half hour walk from the hotel and provides tours and free samples of its many products. Saumur is in a wine -growing region and the wines produced can be purchased at the lovely hotel restaurant - Les Menestreles, which is quite popular.. The food was very good, nicely presented and the the service excellent.
A nice stay and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.
