Beautiful grounds but NOT for elderly, disabled.
Posted Sep 4, 2016
Stayed for a few days while visiting the region. Very nice, central location, about 10-15 minutes from Langeais and within easy driving distance of nearby chateaux, churches, etc. Staff was helpful but less warm than in other places we stayed. Hotel grounds are magnificent with beautiful views of the area, a wonderful terrace, an outstanding collection of trees (of many different kinds) and some nice walks around the property, though there are no hiking trails. Rooms are very nice with generally modern bathrooms, but the layout can be strange: in one room, the closet is in the bathroom! And the air conditioning works very well, which was a real asset as this was a hot August. BUT we all had allergic reactions to the hotel rooms of varying severity, from mild (nasal congestion) to reasonably strong (runny nose, itchy throat, stuffed up heads, sore throats, etc.). Maybe it was the cats; maybe it was dust trapped in the carpets or curtains, but it was noticeable. It got better during the course of each day (when we were away from the hotel) but worsened at night. It only really got better when we left. Also, one of the toilets was so close to the radiator that it was difficult to use -- and this was in summer, when the heat was off. There was so little space that an elderly or disabled person might have found it dangerous.
