The staff were fabulous
The bed needed a new mattress. The room was quite small
Unlike large hotel chains Diderot provides a warm welcome and loads of charm. The breakfast is second to none with it's choice of home made jams, tasty breads, local apple juice and very good coffee. Courtyard and garden very picturesque.
Unfortunately unable to stay for longer!
A hotel of charm and character. Very friendly staff, wonderful homemade jams and selections of bread for breakfast, a must!
A fantastic holiday, we really enjoyed the peace of quiet. The staff all made our stay welcome. Thank you.
We spent 2 wonderful nights at Hotel Diderot and loved the hotel. We arrived on bicycles and they had a secure place to lock our bikes in the garden courtyard. Loved sitting outside each evening for a glass of local wine before dinner. Hotel is located in building that is over 400 years old and sections added and renovated. Our room was upstairs and found it to be quiet and comfortable, and exceptionally clean. Location was great for getting into town and exploring the fortress and historic center. Best part of the stay was breakfast in a charming room with wooden beams and stone walls. The owners make their own jam and each morning you have a selection of 25 jams to choose from! You also get fresh local goat cheese, breads, yogurt, fruit, fresh apple juice and coffee. The treat was being able to crack your own walnuts which are mixed with honey and chives and spread on toast. Delicious! The staff all speak English and are very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.
Friendly welcome, Comfortable rooms face courtyard, Very nice breakfast, Recommended great local restaurant
The room comfort and the homy breakfast
The lack of parking spaces.
The owner was very helpful.
Proximity to town
Unwilliness to guarantee parking each day (we stayed for 5 nights) Unfortunately the staff were more stunned to the Backroads Tour groups rather than individual travellers and let them be as noisy as they liked while admonishing everyone else re noise control. Peace and quiet was destroyed every morning and evening when they took over the breakfast and bar area. Small rooms no fridge
A hotel that didn't seem like a hotel. Very quaint with warm hospitality. Ideally located very close to the centre of the village Breakfast was in a very old room filled with character and consisted of Apple juice, fruit salad and yogurt followed by croissants, breads, goats cheese, walnuts,honey and of course the famous jams Will recommend as a lovely place to stay
I loved my room (no.1) overlooking the parking area with views to the Vienne River beyond. The classical furniture was a delight, the room spacious and the new bathroom especially pleasing. Close to the restaurant area, ample free parking at the doorstep and v friendly & enthusiastic staff. One of the best in my memory, for certain.
We had not visited France before and Hotel Diderot was the first in a series of booking we'd made through France as part of our tour. With nothing to compare it with we hadn't any idea of what to expect and we weren't at all disappointed. Everything about our stay was just as we'd hoped it would be - location, facilities, food and especially the staff. A great way to start our holiday and we'll certainly be looking at a return visit.
We have stayed at Hotel Diderot a number of times and it is always a very high standard. The hotel is full of charm and character and the patron is always most welcoming. The bedrooms have been tastefully refurbished over the last few years. The position of the hotel cannot be bettered, close to the centre of Chinon yet in a quiet location.
Good location in the centre of town, with limited onsite parking and a free car park nearby. Quiet at night even with a window open. We had a room overlooking the pretty courtyard garden. Pleasant welcome from a young lady on arrival and then good service from one of the proprietors at breakfast. Chinon was bigger than we expected so plenty of bars and restaurants, the tourist office gave us a map of the top sites, the walk or lift up to the fortress is well worth it for the view across the rooftops.
Very minor but a few cobwebs in the stairwell leading up to our room. And other guests going out into the courtyard early (to leave or for breakfast) could be heard quite clearly in our room.
Owners and staff. Location Quality of sleep Breakfast Quietness Modern bathrooms
Dated feel about some areas not to be confused with Period Charm
The staff is the best. The owner sets the tone. He is so into his desire to make his guests experience the best possible. His energy is almost super human. Will never forget our stay there.
Can't think of anything.
Beautiful garden terrace, helpful staff, the best breakfast in France. Chinon is a delightful town.
The rooms are a little pokey and the decor old fashioned.
Lovely room. Comfortable bed with expensive sheets. Superb breakfast. Beautiful terrace. Bar serving craft ales (not just your standard Kronenbourg). Excellent location.
A delightful hotel, with very helpful staff. A lovely courtyard in which to breakfast and have a drink at the end of the day. Charming bedrooms. Very good location in the old part of Chinon. We will hope to stay there again.
I loved the quirkiness of it and the delightful welcome we received from the staff. The little terrace in the sunshine was a lovely place for a drink and for breakfast. A beautiful home... and that was how it felt. Thank you to the staff.
The character of the place and the breakfast
nothing to dislike
Lovely old hotel, comfortable room, beautiful grounds with foliage, great location, amazing staff and the best breakfast in Chinon.
There were no detractions
Don't know of a lovelier Hotel in Chinon, or many other places, come to that! Sitting on the terrace for afternoon tea in the sun is as close to paradise as you can hope to get! Wallpapers in the lovely rooms are fabric!
