    « Huge room, especially the bathroom »

    The hotel is located directly on the River Loire, though the view of the river from this spot is not the greatest. Free parking is available on the street beside the hotel. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. The woman at reception spent considerable time trying to help us with dinner reservations and made a decent recommendation. The room was large, classic style with the largest hotel bathroom I've seen yet. Breakfast was quite nice, so make sure to take it.

    « Great location as a break in return journey to UK »

    Hotel in easy walking distance from main 'old town' for restaurants/shops and also to see the famous chateau or short drives to Fontevraud/ Chinon etc. The only hotel receptionist in a 2week travelling French holiday to ask if I would prefer to speak in French or English. When I said French, she assured me she would try to speak clearly and not too fast..refreshing! Breakfast was good. Room comfortable. Private on site parking to pay for.

    « Convenient »

    We stayed one night in a room overlooking the river. Very neat, quiet, clean, good bathroom and shower. The bed queen size was comfortable. Keep your window closed as advised to do so because of the tiny mosquitos. The breakfast consisted of a nice selection of cheese and charcuterie, fresh baguette and croissants, cakes and yoghurt, no espresso machine but nice coffee.

    « BW Adagio: Super convenient, clean, quiet, well done! »

    Stayed 2 nights, nice modern room, appropriate size for France. Good breakfast. Friendly personnel and good walk-to restaurants right nearby. I'd recommend the Pub House for pizza and La Pierre Chaude for French. Priced right and delicious. You can park in the median in the street (it's legal and enough room) or pay to park in hotel. Right next to the Loire River. Oh, and there is an elevator,

    « Great vaue, great breakfasts! »

    My wife and I, plus son (17) and daughter (11) stayed in a family room (two double beds) for a night on our way back from holiday in the Dordogne. Room was no frills but clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate. We paid £82 via booking.com, which was excellent value (although we did book before the post-Brexit Sterling fall). We were also able to park right outside, although it was a weekend and it would be worth checking if that is possible on weekdays. Breakfasts are a bit pricey (13 Euros adults, 12 Euros children) but delicious and 'all you can eat' so if you have a healthy appetite and a long day head (as we did) I would say well worth it.

    « Lovely hotel, great location »

    We stayed one night in this lovely town and the hotel was very good. Parking may be a problem, so we paid 7 euros to use their secure under ground parking which was definitely worth it. Good location, short walk to the centre. Good air con and a mini bar.

    « Good location, comfortable, interesting town. »

    Stayed here four nights whilst visiting Saumur and the Grand Prix Retro at nearby Le Puy Notre Dame. Very good location overlooking the Loire and easy walk to the centre of town, the chateau, and restaurants. The hotel had secure covered parking which was great as we were travelling in classic open cars. Room was large, clean and comfortable with aircon. Very good breakfast buffet in the spacious dining room. Staff were all very friendly and helpful particularly Monsieur Paul.

    « Well situated »

    Stayed here on an overnight stop on the way to Spain. We stayed as a family of four, there was secure parking at the back of the hotel. Room for four people was two double beds, would have preferred a double and twin or twins, but ok for one night. Hotel was clean, easy check in and conveniently situated for the town of Saumur, which is a lovely town, very picturesque.

    « Good location and extremely comfortable »

    Courteous friendly staff especially Monsiur Paul. Rooms large and comfortable and had air con which was adjustable and quiet. Some off street parking available. Coffee and tea making facilities in room . Views of river from rooms and easy walk into old part of town and to the Chateau. A good variety of attractions in Saumur and vicinity.

    « Relaxed hotel with excellent room; bit lacking in facilities »

    We (2 adults and our 12 year old) arrived on July 24 and had a nice stay in a large room on the 4th floor. Even with the extra bed there was good space and the air conditioning worked pretty well, although the temperature was centrally controlled, and seemed to go off in the middle of the night. The breakfast room was small and quite intimate with a nice view, and the breakfast itself was good, including boiled eggs! Beware the "river view" from this hotel - at the time of year we stayed there was almost no water in this branch of the Loire, it's all going round the other side of the Island! Still, if you want to look out at a pond and some long grass, fine, it's not an unpleasant sight, just not really a river. It's a bit of a walk into Saumur, a little under 10 mins. There are more central hotels. It wasn't a surprise to us, but this hotel is small and lacks the public spaces and facilities of a larger building. However, for us the relaxed nature of the stay and friendly staff were exactly what we were after and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    « QUIET HOTEL, WITH ALL MOD CONS »

    We stayed here with a group of cyclists on our St Malo to Nice event. The rooms were comfortable and well-appointed, the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. The hotel is right by the river and in a relatively quiet area. We were only a short walk from the town centre, with its shops and restaurants. We'll definitely use the hotel again.

    « Comfortable, good for touring »

    Located on an island in the Loire river. The best parts of town are on the main bank, about 3/4 mile away. We used the hotel as a base for touring, so this didn't matter. We arrived on a Monday, so virtually all the restaurants were closed. We found a great place to eat - Bistrot Les Tontons. Really worth a visit, but booking essential.

    « Great location in Saumur »

    We stayed at the hotel overnight and would definitely recommend it. It was very easy to get to and there is parking outside or secure parking off road. The receptionist was lovely and showed us up to our room which was very comfy with a mini bar, view of the river, big bathroom and comfy bed. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but there are plenty of restaurants a short stroll along the road and over the bridge. The breakfast was very nice with plenty on offer in a large bright airy room.

    « 4 NIGHTS »

    This is always our preferred hotel when we come to Saumur. Lovely rooms, nice staff and parking. Mini bar in rooms, quiet. Central for the places we like to see in Rue St Nicholas. Another lovely 4 nights spent here.

    « Great hotel in Saumur »

    Adagio hotel is a great hotel, should be 4* not 3*. Great location on side of Loire River, very close to centre of surprisingly beautiful town. Good value. Rooms excellent, staff very good. Quite expensive breakfasts.

    « A great hotel in a lovely location »

    We only spent one night in Saumur, but we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. We had a lovely room with a river view and the staff were all friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean with lots of well-thought out extras like tea/coffee making, hairdryer, shower products etc which aren't often provided in France. There's ample parking nearby and the main town is an easy and level walk across a pretty road bridge with stunning castle views. Highly recommended.

    « Fabulous Hotel in the Loire River at Saumur »

    This hotel really is in the Loire as it is situated on an island in the middle of the river as it runs through Saumur. Saumur is one of the most beautiful cities in France and the Adagio lives up to its situation. If you are driving reserve parking at the hotel as it is a bit of a lottery parking otherwise, as in any city. There is no restaurant, but we ordered dinner in our room which was excellent. Spacious bathroom. Huge bed. All good.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    This hotel has a huge bathroom, like an American Best Western and a larger than (French) average bedroom. In the room I felt like I was in an American hotel, except ESPN showed soccer and was in French. Parking was free on the street. Staff was very helpful; changing a lightbulb quickly and giving excellent advice for finding a gas station open during the refinery workers strike. I doubt I'll return to Saumer, but if I do, I will definitely stay at Adagio.

    « Comfort, value and location »

    We have stayed at the Adagio twice now, for stays of 5 to 9 days. The rooms are nicely furnished and well maintained, the bathrooms are good. Rooms vary in size and price, but even the small ones for individual guests are good. There are different packages that include or don't include breakfast. Breakfast offers a good range of choices - fruit, juices, yogurt, excellent quality breads, pan chocolat and croissants from local bakers, cheeses and cold meats. The hotel has a bar and also offers a room service dinner. The quality of these meals is terrific - good home cooking but with some flair. The items are well chosen and cover 2 or 3 choices of fish, including crevettes, pasta, and beef Bourgogne. Vegetable accompaniments are fresh and not over cooked. The Adagio is in a good spot on Ile D'Offard, the island in the Liore river, and major roads leading to the major towns and chateaux are easily accessible. It doesn't have a view of the Saumur Chateau, but the Pont Cessart bridge that gives wonderful views of it and various church spires is only about 400 meters away. The staff are friendly and some have very good English.

    « A great surprise »

    This is a wonderful hotel with caring owners and very professional staff. This was our second stay. The breakfast selection is wide and of very good quality. Our room was excellent as was the bed size and comfort. The hotel is well located and parking is easy out the front. The great surprise for us was the quality of the very reasonably priced meals available from room service. It was so good we dined in our room 3 times! For restaurant dining, there is an excellent place hidden in a side street just a few paces away: Auberge de la Reine de Sicile. I town La Comedie is of a similar standard.

    « Hotel building impressive but no locked bike storage available. »

    Building was impressive but staff did not live up to expectations. We arrived by bike and asked about locked bike storage. We were told we could leave bikes in the garage and directed to a place that was signposted specifically for bikes. While gate to car park was locked, place where bikes were was easily accessible to anyone and a button opened gate form inside. It was beside a locked cage with bicycle stands in it. I asked to use the cage and was told it was not possible as cage was no longer used for bikes. Strange and unsettling. Room was nice. Breakfast was a little expensive but ok.

    « October 24 »

    Nice family room with one double bed and two singles. Third floor with nice view of Loire river. Obviously newly renovated. Clean. The shower could be a challenge for tall people as it was in a bathtub with a slanting ceiling. Still, really good value for money.

    « great stay »

    stayed 3 nights here our room was large well appointed great views of the river,its about a 10 minute leisurely walk across the bridge to pubs and restaurants parking is little tight and you pay for it about 21 euros in hind sight we could have parked on the street free.we can highly recommend the adagio its clean quiet and comfortable and a great base to work from

    « Noisy, low quality... Stay elsewhere »

    Not worth the money... Many better places to stay in the area. In a seemingly empty hotel, not sure why we were given a room next to the elevator and smack in front of a busy intersection. Got woken up at 5:30 by road noise and couldnt get back to sleep. Avoid.

    « our six night stay »

    this was a lovely hotel about 2 miles from the centre of the city, situated on an island. we were given a room overlooking the river, with French windows opening onto the view. The hotel had a small bar, and breakfast room, but not restaurant facilitys. But room service is available, and has a choice of dishes at reasonable prices. The desk team are friendly, and are concerned that you are happy with your stay at all points. there is a parking garage, but space is minimum. However, it is easy and safe to park in the streets nearby, which we did. there is a small business five doors or so, away from the hotel. run by two young men. Its a bar that sells lots of Belgium beer, and pizzas are freshly made to your taste at reasonable prices. It is called Pub House. And we found it a boon. I would recommend it to anyone. I must say we had an enjoyable stay.

    « Excellent hotel in the right location at the right price! »

    We booked at this hotel on spec when we arrived in Saumur, having had one good experience of a Best Western hotel earlier in our holiday. Very glad we did - it's not the most impressive of exteriors but inside was modern, clean and comfortable. They only had one room left and the receptionist showed it to us before we made a decision - they classed it as a "comfort" room and I believe the receptionist told us it only had a smallish bed in it, but we found it roomy enough for a couple (the bed AND the room, I mean!) and it had a very nice modern bathroom. Not sure if this is Best Western policy but the room rate was exclusive of breakfast for which we were charged an extra 25 euros but even with that the total rate was very competitive and we had no complaints. The hotel is on the Ile d'Offard on the River Loire which means you have to go over a bridge to get to it - it's therefore important that you remember *which* bridge you came over since there are bridges both sides of the island. It's only a short walk of 10 minutes or so (across the correct bridge!) to get into the medieval centre of Saumur where there are numerous eating places to suit most tastes. The views of the Chateau du Beaulieu and the other buildings of the town along the banks of the Loire are fantastic, especially at night - and we were lucky enough to get a room with a view at the Adagio. Give it a try - it looks a llittle anonymous from the street but don't judge a book by its cover.

    « Great hotel and a great bar just up the street »

    Stayed at that Adagio again this year. Very comfortable rooms with really good modern bathrooms. Staff on reception and throughout the hotel are very friendly. On our last night we discovered the Pub House just a few doors away on the walk into town. Really friendly server with excellent English made us feel really welcome. Fantastic selection of beers in bottles and 6 en pression and a good pizza and coffees to finish us off. Thought it deserved a mention.

    « Excellent place to stay »

    We stayed in this hotel on the way down from St. Malo to Bordeaux with our family of 2 adults and 2 children (8 & 11). Our family room was very spacious and comfortable and had tea and coffee making facilities. Everything was very clean, and the free wifi access was good and fast (fast enough for YouTube). Very close to restaurants (good creperie about 5 minutes walk that served food at 17:00 - excellent for the kids), and pizzeria just a couple of doors away from the hotel (open from 7:30). Use of the car park was fairly expensive at €7, but it was gated and secure. Overall a great find, and we'll be staying here again I'm sure.

    « Nice hotel, good location to explore Saumur »

    We stayed at the Adagio for one night on our way to the South West of France from St. Malo. The hotel looks like it has been recently modernised. The staff were friendly and efficient. There were three of us and we had a room with 2 double beds: it was clean and well sized with a good ensuite bathroom. Breakfast, though additional to our room rate, was good, the food plentiful and restocked by the member of staff on a regular basis. Secure parking was available, but we parked on the side of the road by the hotel, which seemed fine. The hotel is on an island and it is a 5-10 minute walk over the bridge into the main part of the city where there are shops and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. Oh...and free wifi !

    « Great motorcycle tour stop over..secure parking..beautiful town. »

    Nice a/c rooms, views of the river, very clean, helpfull staff and a lovely area to visit, we eat out so cant comment on the food, the secure parking was great for motorcycles, might be tight for a large car. highly recommended.

    « Why stay anywhere else? »

    This is a wonderfully relaxing hotel, where everything is in order and the staff are effective, efficient and, above all, friendly. I would not stay anywhere else in Saumur and I recommend the hotel highly. The hotel is conveniently situated for the town centre which is about 5 minutes away and the breakfasts are particularly fine.

    « Good hotel and location »

    Stayed one night while touring. Good clean hotel in good location, up to the usual Best Western standard. A very good selection buffet breakfast included in the rate. Parking in the street outside the hotel was free. Welcoming staff. I would certainly use again
