Boutique Hotel located in the heart of the charming medieval town of Chinon. The property is bordered by the sight of Vienna and the vineyards and is ideal to discover the heritage of the beautiful region of Indre-et-Loire, discover its magnificent castle, its ancient streets, not forgetting the many wineries in the area. The hotel is only two minutes from the station and the medieval town of Chinon. To highlight the pub with English atmosphere.

Good hotel, poor restaurant.

We ate in this restaurant two years ago. The service was so bad it was comical. As it was raining and were staying in the hotel we ate here again. The service hasn’t improved, basically you wait and wait, firstly for the menu, then to order, then even longer to eat. Ordering a bottle of wine took three attempts as after 15 minutes were told out of stock ditto the second. We were told by the waiter our mains had been served to the adjacent table meaning a further 20 minute wait. When they eventually arrived the mushrooms were icy cold. The other diners thought it was hilarious. On paying the bill not even the slightest apology so I asked for a reduction so they didn’t charge for the wine. Pity the food is quite good.

I found it hard to decide how to rate this hotel but overall we had a really good and enjoyable stay so yes 4 stars :) Arrived late to find that the 2 rooms we had booked were in separate buildings, neither with a lift so not ideal for the 2 elderly ladies with us. We spoke to the young receptionist (Leah??)the following morning, who was exceptionally kind, friendly and professional and found a solution so that we would both be on the same floor and on the first floor. We also met her on the square one evening as we were taking photos and she very kindly stopped and offered to take one of the four of us together! Much appreciated! Overall, staff were very friendly and professional. Breakfast was great, decent continental, with plenty of variety and good quality food, which was consistently topped up. We had dinner twice in the restaurant attached to the hotel and found the food and service very good. Fantastic location in the town with free parking at the door. Chinon is an absolutely gorgeous little town!! Both rooms were clean and of a good size. What a lovely touch to have a kettle and tea/coffee making in the hallway!! Our room was of a decent standard and comfortable with good bedding, no complaints whatsoever, and a beautiful view of the nearby church spire. The ladies' room, however, was an apartment, quite substandard for a 3 star and in need of renovation. No natural light or window in the kitchen/sitting-room, which was painted an ugly yellow. It was however clean and well-maintained so was not a major issue, and most importantly thanks to Leah? the four of us were accommodated on the same floor! Grand merci to all at le lion d'or chinon, we had a lovely stay with you!!
Wonder Bordeaux Dinner!

Quaint old world restaurant with a welcoming local feeling and wonderful dinner and dessert. We enjoyed a salad and then the duck, which was prepared to perfection. The dessert was so creative served as a sphere around a fruit compote with kiwi, pineapple, mandarins. No this is not a stark and clean line restaurant that can be so popular today, but a wonderful hint into a warm and inviting traditional ambience.
Great for watching the world go by

Great bar right in the middle of town. Very friendly and helpful staff. Just get you pastries from the boulangerie around the corner and sit here and watch the world go by. The food looked good although we did not here so cannot comment.
Great hotel for bikers

We stayed at this hotel whilst travelling around France. The hotel has a bar and restaurant on site. Secure and private motorbike parking is provided within a courtyard area of the hotel. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful and speak very good english. Breakfast is provided at an extra cost, however we never ate breakfast at the hotel. Rooms are big and comfortable and the WIFI worked very well. Flat screen TVs with a couple of english News channels. The centre of Chinon is only a 5 minute walk away, where you will find plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. Note on a Sunday and Monday most of these are closed all day. note: when we stayed the weather was extremely hot, however this hotel did not have air-conditioning, there was a large fan in the room.
