Basic hotel, nothing specialPosted Sep 14, 2013
Pros: It was clean.
Cons: Add some charm.
Location: Not really much to do around here, other than take a look at the abbey.
The room was clean but lacked any charm. The hotel receptionist kept us waiting for 20 minutes while she tried to figure out a mistake on another couples' billing - she seemed unable to do basic math, and although there was another staff person milling around, we simply had to wait. When we asked her for directions to the next major town, she didn't seem to have heard of it. Overall there was nothing special about this hotel.

Tripadvisor choicePosted Sep 8, 2013
Pros: Reception staff nice, room OK! Breakfast nice (fresh fruit). Quiet.
Cons: Service in Restaurant for guests other than groups. Dinner took 3 hours to serve - it was a warm evening, the meal was OK and it was as it was..
Location: Beautiful. Visit Saumur, Chinon and St Martin's.
Easy to find. Large property. Lovely area. Reception staff nice - we accepted the first room offered. Nice surroundings. Booked evening meal - competed with group. It took a long time to be served ( 3 hours) but we chatted and enjoyed he wine and food. The Swedish group was OK and they helped themselves to some of our breakfast buffet as they left their own section of the restaurant. All in all it was a good visit.

Great location. Free WiFi!!!!!Posted Sep 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
Wifi access useless. Managed 6 minutes in attempts from 7pm to 12 pm and again from 7.30 am. Asked reception but very nice but unable to help. Essential for planning journey and booking hotels. Cheaper hotels throughout our journey through France have all done much better with Wi Fi. Secure bike parking requested was in car park with no fixing points for padlock as shed full of hire bikes. Otherwise OK.

Wonderful hotelPosted Jul 12, 2011
Found the hotel to be better than I expected. The staff were very friendly & welcoming, the rooms fairly basic but very clean and the restaurant staff, service & food was wonderful. Town in in a reasonably good spot for sightseeing & wine tasting if you have transport. Would definitely stay there again if going to that area.

A wonderful place to stayPosted Sep 1, 2009 on Hotels.com
We had a wonderful evening at La Croix Blanche with a very comfortable room and excellant evening meal. Breakfast was equally enjoyable. Would visit again if in the area.

Sans hésiter il faut s'y arrêterPosted Aug 12, 2008 on Hotels.com
L'hostellerie pourvoit à tout, 3 restaurants sur place. il faut dire qu'à part ceux la : rien L'abbaye à voir juste à côté, les chateaux du coin, et les AOC bien sur !

Very very pleasant and relaxingPosted Jul 16, 2008
We had a relaxing stay here for 4 nights. The staff are very pleasant and eager to help. They ask if you speak French and when they can hear you struggling are quite happy speaking English. Although it looks very old at the front, the hotel has been expanded at the back, meaning that the rooms are fairly modern and very comfortable. The choice of dining is good giving you a choice of budgets and when the weather was warm enough we were able to eat in the little courtyard. The village is small and charming, but not somewhere you would go for any nightlife.
