We stayed here on our La Velo Francette bike ride and it's a great base either for a night or for an extended stay (it has hotel rooms as well as self-catering apartments). The staff were super friendly and didn't blink an eye when two smelly, sweaty cyclists arrived later than expected. It's located in the heart of Saumur, as short walk/ride from the Loire River. Breakfast was one of the best we had on the ride with a huge buffet with breads, cereals, eggs, fruits and yoghurts from which to choose. Bike storage was the most secure we had all trip with bikes locked in a private garage at the rear of the hotel, with the garage courtyard also acccessed by code. The hotel also carries the French Accueil Velo mark. Free wifi (plus computers for guest use are also available). It's family friendly with toys and books etc available for kids. Beds were comfy, showers were hot, the hotel itself was bright and clean – an ideal place to stay.
