Stayed in Hotel du Parc for two nights in September. Overall had a wonderful experience. All hotel staff helpful and courteous. Hotel just on the outskirts of Saumur, making a very peaceful setting, about a twenty minute walk into the old town or five minutes by bike. We rented bikes from the hotel for a day and cycled along the Loire passing vineyards and fields of sunflowers part of the way. Breakfast was very good both mornings with crispy bread rolls, fresh fruit,an array of croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice. We had dinner there one night which was very good too. The only low point and I hesitate to mention it as we didn't bring it to the attention of the manager, but there seemed to be a strong smell of dogs around the outside of the hotel which prevented us from sitting outside on the lovely terrace. We will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it. One other major plus was the availability of several BBC TV channels which was the only hotel out of the seven we stayed in on our trip to France which provided them free of charge. Sometimes it's the little things that mean the most.
