What our customers say
"Quick stop over on the way home "
We had a very comfortable stay here. We arrived quite late after travelling from Azay d’Indre and just want to say a huge thank you to Guann for going above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. No request was too much for him and he constantly delivered service with a smile. He was very welcoming and helpful - a definite asset to your team. Our room was comfortable and clean and we had a good nights sleep. We will be back on our next trip. Thank you
"SAFE, CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE"
The hotel was scrupulously clean and sanitisation arrangements were very evident. A comfortable stay was spoiled by noisy guests arriving in the car park at 02.00 and again later.
