    The receptionist made us feel very welcome and helped us relax after a very long day travelling. She did an excellent job and we would like you to thank he for us. It is nice to stay some where where the staff are helpful and friendly.

    There is much noise from other rooms.

    Very helpful, friendly staff who gave us excellent advice on restaurants etc. We enjoyed a peaceful drink on the terrace after a busy day sightseeing. The town of Tours is right on your doorstep when staying at this hotel. There was plenty of fruit, yogurt and cereal for breakfast as well as a full array of croissant, pain au chocolat, bagette etc. and accompanying jam, honey and Nutella. Lots of different flavours of coffee and tea were also to hand.

    Superb

    We appreciated the efficiency of desk staff to connect us to Wireless internet and to advise on restaurants. The facilities of the room were well considered and, fortunately, well insulated from the building work noise next door. Good value at the agreed price....might look elsewhere if the advertised prices had been charged. A goo base for an overnight stopover en route to or from the coastal ports Excellent breakfast at the inclusive charge..

    The hot water supply disappeared completely for 20 minutes at a crucial period before breakfast. Otherwise the supply was excellent. Surprised to read that animals are welcomed. We felt uncomfortable to think our room had been previously occupied by dogs. No animal rooms should be offered.

    Very polite staff, good location,nice breakfast for French standards. Big bathroom and clean facilities

    Very outdated decoration in the room and floors. The hotel will look much nicer with a renovation. The bed mattress wad of very low quality. Overall, it doesn't worth stay at this hotel more than 1-2 nights, given also the high rate.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is ideally situated for visiting Tours and the surrounding attractions in the Loire Valley. Living up to its name, it's centrally located in a back street just off the main (mostly pedestrian) street that runs through Tours from the Cathedral area to the 'old town'; full of bars, shops and restaurants of all types, so the lack of a restaurant in the hotel is not an issue. Nice interior garden and very friendly staff. We visited during a hot period so the AC in the room was very welcome.

    Our room overlooked the adjacent construction site - luckily very little noise at this stage of construction and adequately soundproofed windows. The construction has eaten away some of the parking space, so this is an issue: arrive early and leave late or arrive late and leave early! As with many Best Westerns the breakfast is over-priced, however there are plenty of cafés within a couple of minutes.

    Exceptional

    The staff were welcoming and friendly. It had a good central location but in a quiet area. There was free internet access. Large clean bathroom well decorated and large bath. Solidly built on the lower floors so noise from other rooms didn't intrude. Beds comfortable Air conditioning in room worked quickly. Would be happy to stay again and recommend to friends.

    Nothing, never had breakfast.

    Very good

    Helpful support from English speaking receptionist.

    Failure to inform us that the Braderie Festival in Tours, an annual event, would make it difficult to navigate to the Hotel on the booked day. In the event it took us 90 minutes to get through and around the road closures using a sat/nav. No apology on eventual arrival so clearly Hotel did not see that advice on an open approach route would have been helpful. Also the Hotel insists that car keys are handed in to reception. These are then stored on a visible hook behind an often unmanned reception desk. A worrying security hazard for guests. The room was smaller and less comfortable than on a previous stay in May yet the charge was more expensive.

    location and parking...excellent for a city centre and for breaking a long drive from south of france to roscoff.having stayed at BW hotels in the USA and england i now find them an easy first choice anywhere in the world. they work!

    Fabulous

    I knew it would be clean and comfortable. The location was good. The fact that there was a car parking place available if requested was definitely good.

    It is not a cheap/budget hotel and the breakfast was overly expensive, so we ate breakfast out.

    It was in the middle of the city

    Being made to pay to park the car[ this should be included in the rates]. The room I stayed in was on 4th floor where a lot of alterations had gone on. The divide between 439 and 440 is only plasterboard and the bathroom next door is adjacent to the sleeping area of this room. All sounds from next doors bathroom could be heard clearly [ including the guest next door breaking wind ]. more sound insulation needs to be put on the walls.

    Exceptional

    Initially we chose this hotel for its location, central for visiting the Loire castles and cathedrals. We made an excellent choice and will certainly use Best Western again. The staff were unfailingly helpful and cheerful - they were well informed about the region and quickly found the correct garage to repair a broken rear window on our (English Corsa) car after we had an accident. They rang the garage without charging us for the call. One receptionist even found some heavy duty plastic sheeting to keep the inside of the car dry overnight until we could take it for repair (no charge for this). They gave us maps to find interesting places to visit, and helped us to arrange alternative payment methods when I forgot my new card number. The room was on the top floor, clean and bright, with an excellent bathroom and a view of the cathedral towers over the rooftops. Big fluffy towels and bathrobes were provided and replaced as often as required. Breakfast was good: choice of cold meats, sausages, eggs, cereals, toast, croissants, sweet rolls, yoghurts, fresh fruit, six kinds of coffee - can't remember everything, but all fresh and tasty. There was airconditioning and a tv in the room, but I'd advise booking parking space, which is limited. This hotel ticked all the boxes.

    Car parking is charged.
