Fodor's Review

Although it's a bit off the beaten track, this small, white-walled hotel—a family affair since 1954—provides a warm welcome and makes a pleasant base. Guest rooms are compact yet comfortable, and each has a little balcony with a view of the tree-lined Loiret (the best is from No. 4). You can also drink in the river view from the excellent restaurant (no lunch Saturday; no dinner Sunday, November–April); popular with locals, the stylish menu changes seasonally.
