Fodor's Review

Known far and wide for its exceptional restaurant, this smart little hotel 1 km (½ mile) from the Château de Blois has guest rooms that are comfortable, air-conditioned, and soundproof; all share a joyous color scheme but are individually decorated. The restaurant alone makes a stay here worthwhile (closed Monday November–March; no dinner Sunday). Decorated in Renaissance-style with a coffered ceiling, it is the domain of Michelin-starred chef-owner Damien Garanger, who turns classic dishes into presentations—picture coquilles St-Jacques with bitter roquette, or thin slices of roast hare with a black-currant sauce. The impressive wine list includes more than 300 choices.
