the people who owned\ran the place were WONDERFUL, but....we had a VERY small room, and that was sad for us. The woman who ran the hotel was particularly wonderful! The people were great...the room (number 36 was NOT). we did not know that we were a mile from the main city; you should tell travellers that information.

Small basic hotel, located on the Loire. Town centre is reached by crossing two bridges and island, so it's at least a 10 minute walk. The hotel is located beside train lines, but not too many trains came through. It was clean and great value. We stayed in a room with 3 single beds.
