Friendly, attentive hotel - cheap, too!

Posted Jul 31, 2013
Pros: Warm welcome, efficient service, great restaurant, position.
Cons: The front facing rooms have no aircon, and in high summer it can get pretty hot.
Location: Very close to old city of Saumur, within cycling distance of several pretty Loire villages, and by car within easy reach of the whole of the Loire.
The St Paul is a commercial hotel, in the sense that it caters for unpretentious business people as well as tourists - but note, while its facilities are modest and its position on a main road not exactly scenic, it has a really excellent restaurant. The proprietors are welcoming and multi-lingual. The location - about six km out of Saumur - is extremely convenient. The surrounding countryside is charming and rural. It has a pool and a pleasant garden. The village of Vivy itself has very little to offer and is dominated by the main highway. The hotel also costs peanuts, though it would be worth the few euros extra to upgrade to one of the superior rooms, which are at the back and away from the traffic.

Plain hotel with a good restaurant

Posted Jun 27, 2013
Pros: Food, staff, bicycle storage
Cons: Bar section of the hotel
Location: Saumur has a fantastic chateau well worth the visit alone. Saumur has a pretty and thriving city centre. Right beside the Loire, which is just stunnib
The hotel looks plain enough from the outside and, indeed, the bar section of the hotel is rather unprepossessing. The restaurant attatched to the hotel and hiding in a series of side rooms was excellent. Staff at the hotel and restaurant were excellent. Secure bicycle storage was provided. The hotel was a few kilometers out of Saumur. Nice rooms, lovely food. Worth considering.
