A wonderful place to stay
Outstanding- we liked it so much we might change our plans to stay again. Loches is an ancient and evocative city, lots of places to walk and explore and eat. Hotel in a great location. Breakfast was superb. We thought it was wonderful value for money. Lots of superlatives!

10/10 Exceptional

We liked the spacious accommodations - two floors (rather unique) plus another small bedroom within the same suite. We also appreciated impressive architectural details with huge ceiling beams. Parking is conveniently located in front of the hotel and plentiful. Location is excellent and old town and restaurants are just an easy walk away. Hotel and room are in excellent condition and bathroom is luxurious. The only suggestions would be to add a compact refrigerator in the bedroom and also to have some small bar soaps ( we found the liquid soap bottle not functioning properly and not everyone likes the liquid soap option).

8/10 Very good

Great location in the centre of Loches. Helpful staff. Good breakfast. We had a "Standard Room, queen bed" which transpired to be on the 2nd floor under the roof. Things to Note: 1. There may not be a fridge in the room (ours was too small to allow, but cant tell if this was true for all rooms). 2. You may be allocated a room on 2nd floor which is under the roof and may contain interesting wood beams but will only have a velux window and no view. 3. The Parking offered is in the public square outside the hotel. Spaces are free but cannot be guaranteed.

Wonderful hotel in restored historic building
Magnificent sympathetically recently restored former Palais de Justice insuperb setting in the beautiful historic city of Loches. The room, the breakfast and particularly the staff were of the highest quality. The only negative was the evening meal. A very limited menu, with main course comprising a tiny parcel of pork with 3 different types of courgette!! Not the most interesting vegetable and cooking it three different ways did not inmo improve this. In addition, the wine was poorly served, again inmo! I ordered a Vouvray to start with and a Chirouble to accompany the main course. I had not finished the white wine when the wine waiter (manager?) poured the red wine into the same glass! even though there was white wine unfinished. A disappointing meal but this did not detract from our stay in this most impressive hotel. Word of advice, we would recommend L’Entract and The Hotel de France for diner.- both excellent
