The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is right next to the chateaux. The breakfast buffet was great. The restaurant, which serves dinner, has a limited selection but the dishes are fantastic.
Staff are exceptional
Extremely friendly and knowledgable staff.
No fridge in the rooms.
the location, the staff, the lovely spacious room were all we could ask for and then some. This is the place to stay in Azay!
Ground Floor room in old part excellent for elderly geest
Restaurant loofked gloomy, fortunately closet THE day we were there....breakfast not exceptionally goodo
The rooms were so cute and unusual and right near good restaurants. Great bike storage and helpful staff. A fun "cultural experience"
As always, wifi not strong
The staff at the hotel were very solicitous. The hotel and our room were very lovely. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of food. The little town had a beautiful chateau, ample parking, good restaurants, and was centrally located for seeing interesting chateaus.
Wonderful place to stay în wonderful.wonderful welcoming People.
Very flexible when we had to change the dates of our visit - even booked us into the best restaurant in town as their own was closed that evening.
Owner was extremely helpful and spoke great English
Friendly and kind staff - answered all our travel queries with a smile
The tv a total waste of time as bad reception and no English programmers or French sports so we missed watching the golf Ryder Cup No A. La Carte dinner menu - only expensive 3 course menu so we ate at good nearby restaurants
very good service and excellent breakfast. we had problem with noise in the courtyard and were offered the room...very impressive
This is a quality hotel and we found the staff friendly and efficient. The food and wine in the restaurant was really excellent and not over expensive for the quality ( 28€ for 3 courses.)It was in the centre of a very attractive village and we were able to visit the chateau when we arrived as it was just a few minutes walk away. The room was small but very comfortable, tastefully decorated with a lovely shower room. We will certainly stay here again.
From the moment we arrived in Azay le Redeau, we were in love with the village. But this love only got better when we met Eric at the Grand Monarque, and were shown our room. It was perfect. We had a relaxing night, and the next morning visited the chateau and the village church.
Location in a lovely town Very helpful Manager & Staff Secure parking for our Classic cars Nice restaurant and food
Can't think of anything we didn't like apart from the restaurant menu being a little limited in choice.
Helpful & friendly staff Ideal location Secure parking Good restaurant Cleanliness & comfort Spacious room
History of building. Parking easy and excellent. Large room.
Paying for breakfast. Internet was a bit slow (but free).
This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The reception was very friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Loved the hotel's historic building, well decorated and maintained. The town was charming. The breakfast was one of the best we had in France. Cannot say enough good things about Hotel Grand Monarque.
The staff met every request, especially Eric. The location was superb to explore the Loire Valley. Rustic charm with modern conveniences. This was a former post house when the mail moved by horses. The restaurant was pleasant and the food prepared well. The internet was secured and had decent speed. Free parking in the town square, which is very convenient to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again in my travels to the Loire Valley.
With no elevator, the climb to our room. This was not a big problem for us, but if you have difficulty climbing stair check for an alternative room. I had no complaints about any other aspect.
The staff were friendly and helpful. They took the initiative to make us a dinner reservation b/c we arrived on a Sunday and their restaraunt was closed. The room was very quiet
The little town was a little too little and a little too sleepy- we'd stay elsewhere on our next trip
Vouvray wine Helpful management
Menu for dinner narrow choice and no daily changes to give variety otherwise everything was good
The quality of the restoration of this building at the heart of the small chateau town of Azay le Rideau is of the highest order. The finishes are stylish and faultless. The benign owner/manager Eric must have put his heart and soul into it all, as well as a small fortune. The breakfast was very good indeed, with the only minor "dislike" that rolled up and rather stringy ham was the only meat on offer. ( We stayed 3 nights and had 3 breakfasts). Parking was very easy in the secure private car park across the road, with half a dozen spaces under cover and plenty more in the open. The road itself was surprisingly busy for a small town, so take care! The central courtyard has table and chairs for you to sit out under the shade of two or three mature trees. The town itself was on your doorstep, touristy but absolutely charming. We chose to eat out in the evenings for a change and thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at the outdoor La Salamandre on the far side of the square/ village car park. We guess that the meals on offer in the restaurant at Le Grand Monarque would be to an extremely high culinary superb but wanted to take advantage of the glorious weather under the vine canopy at La Salamandre, and cheaper prices.
With our particular room (called Cande) in the detached but original block of four suites across the courtyard, we were on the raised ground floor. At first we disliked the idea of a ground floor bedroom with possible noise and privacy issues but soon became perfectly comfortable with it. As before, the quality and style were impeccable. There were a few details of the fitting out and furniture however. Things like no proper dressing table and mirror; no fridge and tea tray as standard; only plastic "glasses"; low power fixed hairdryer in bathroom; liquid soap dispenser in shower and no facility for keeping your own shampoo, flannel etc in the otherwise superbly finished shower "cubicle". These are not meant as major criticisms because the overall experience and value was spot on. Just things that might be re-considered and introduced over time.
A beautiful, old, peaceful hotel. The staff were extremely helpful. The location was fantastic within an ancient village and close to beautiful chateaux. We would definitely stay again.
The hotel ihas a Great location, close to Azay-le-Rideau chateaux and in the middle of this beautiful village. Its a very beautiful Building, the room was absolutly clean, very confortable and couzy. The owner and the people who work there are very gentle, top noch service. I totally recommend everybody to stay in this hotel.
