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!

... a little lost coming into town, and rode an extra 3 or 4 kms. Surely we'll get it right sooner or later. At least it's not as bad as being lost in a car, and trying to manoeuvre in traffic. Blois is quite a big city, probably similar size to Ballarat, and has the mandatory chateau, perched high above the town. They must have had plenty of time in the 10th century, as the rock walls are about 50 mts high. Would have taken years. Wouldn't have suited me, I want it ...
... to stop and ask for directions. A young lady was particularly helpful, but John being John was sure she had it wrong. He's pretty good with directions, so i followed him in the opposite direction to the advice we.'d been given, and sure enough we were back at our hotel in no time. It's been a pretty tiring day, so Johns asleep, while I try to hang out till later so that I might sleep a bit later in the morning. I'm a bit over waking well before it's even daylight, and it's light about 5.00 am. ...
... in the past such as turtle shells and stuffed exotic animals are grotesque and so the art follows on with sculptures showing animals with fish or dragon tails, the halls were peopled by figures of mixed media and all sorts of weird items. We found it a little too much of a clash with the setting. Roast chicken à la maison ce ...
... to have visited to acquire horses for the seige of Orleans. In the eighteenth century it became a grain store for many years and was consequently preserved in it's old state. The chateau is well restored with a size that is approachable and the gardens a delight being full of interesting diversions and less formal than showplaces like Villandry. We picked a fine cool day for the visit. Foie gras, roast farm duck and vegetables with local red wine completed another full ...
... styles and is nice in a Demi - Sec or half dry style. Wanted to buy lots but when flying to Sardinia we need to be light weight.
Restaurants are a bit expensive here but we went out for a lunch today which was nice, I had salmon gravlax and the fish main, it was nice. Kevin had beet root and prawns with a pistou sauce and eye fillet and small potatoes for the main , all good.
Tonight we went to Italian, you just get sick of all ...
