Mind the stairs!
Posted Nov 22, 2016
Parking is difficult as the public car park opposite the hotel is very busy and has a maximum stay of 2 hours up to 18.30. It is free from then until 09.00. Check is is not until 16.00 which ties in well with the car park but not if you want to get checked in and then go off for the rest of the day to explore. Reception is up two floors (4 flights of stairs) then the bedrooms are on the next 2 floors. Our room was on the top floor and there is no lift. The room was pretty basic but clean and the bed comfortable. The bathroom was clean and the shower quite powerful. There were heaters in both the bedroom and bathroom so it was nice and warm. There is no hospitality tray but the receptionist was very helpful and made us a tray of tea to take to our room for a small charge.. Breakfast is good value with a nice selection of cereals, fruit, yogurt, cheeses croissants and bread together with fruit juices, fresh coffee and hot chocolate or teas. Perfectly acceptable for a night stopover.

Dear KIM, We thank you for giving us your feeling about our services.
Concerning the parking place, it is a public place which is free from 6.30pm to 9.00am the day after. Our guests usually find a parking place and do not need to ask us a paying private place. There is a few number of hotel that can provide a parking place like ours in Old Tours city.
As far as the stairs are concerned, the information is given on all our websites and it cannot be a surprise when arriving. None hotel of the old town is equipped with a lift and it is thye same situation for several hotels in French big cities. Installing a lift is not a possibility for us and it would disrespect our building charm.
Hoping to see you again,
