Received an excellent welcome at reception. Choice and quality of food at dinner and breakfast were excellent.[Less]
What a good surprise
We had been looking for a IHG property in the Loire Valley and this was the only hotel listed. I read the reviews and many of the recent ones talked about the AC not working. I even called the hotel[More] and a staff member actually told me that the AC was not working properly. However, I made a reservation for one night just in case the AC did not work. Upon check-in I asked about the AC and was told that it was working. When we got to the room it was very cool. Thanks goodness the AC worked great. We ended up adding two more nights to our stay in the Loire Valley and at this Holiday Inn in Blois. We had driven from Provence to Blois and were a little tired and so decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. We were pleasently surpised at how good the dinner was. The wine was also very good. As I wrote about another HI in France, having a really good menu and wine list was not expected, but we were glad that the food was very good. However, I cannot say the same for the breakfast. I had prepaid extra to include the breakfast, but it was a waste. I guess these hotels while they book large tour groups, do not alter the staff or amount of food to accommodate the large number. There is a very nice place for breakfast just a half a block away. The staff at the front desk were professional and very helpful. We especially appreciated all of the information on the different Chateau's to visit. We would stay here again.[Less]
