Staff - very friendly.
Location - 5 mins walk from the city center. Other towns/castles are easily accessible by car.
Rooms - large, beautifully decorated in Renaissance style with either a garden or river view. This is the main reason to chose this hotel in my opinion.
Restaurant - very "interesting". The French guests seemed to enjoy their meals very much. I had a little difficulty eating the "rabbit stomach cooked in its own skin" (or something along those lines). But the deserts were excellent and they provided some gratis surprises, which made things extra fun. I didn't leave hungry!

Returning to the hotel, we have some time to pack for departure tomorrow. After a brief farewell party in the hotel's bar we drive to the town of Tours for dinner -- a gastronomic extravaganza at a local Michelin-rated restaurant: Charles Barrier. It is a perfectly delicious ending to an opulent and extravagant tour!
... with truffled artichokes, spinach, sauce with Touraine saffron. Dessert: Green apple & Carambar candy, King of the Pippins candied with ginger. With the dessert come a plate of bite-sized cream puffs, chocolate mounds, and a drink made with fresh strawberries.
Everyone is delighted with the chateau, and from the first moment we can tell we are going to be great friends as we "tastefully" eat and drink our way through the Loire Valley!
... us down a bit but thanks to Google maps, no problem. We paid our entrance fee (about 20 dollars each) and decided to tour the grounds outside first and find a spot for our picnic. Found a great location with picnic tables, the Paella didn't disappoint. Saffron rice, mussels, shrimp, chicken and several vegetables. If you haven't tried it before, it's a must!
The Chateau was fairly small and understated compared to those ...
