Description

Situated on the edge of the Loire Valley, the Hotel de France, with its ivy covered Art Deco façade, offers chic and luxurious rooms, a sun drenched terrace and gardens backing onto the Loir River. The hotel serves as a comfortable and relaxing base from which to explore the countless delights this region has to offer. The hotel, famous for its long association with the teams, drivers and cars of the Le Mans 24 hours race, overlooks the main square of the charming town of La Chartre-sur-Le-Loir, in the Sarthe department of the Pays de la Loire region in north-western France. It has excellent access to the main Autoroutes, heading north to nearby Le Mans, south to Tours and Bordeaux, and east to Paris. The airport at Tours and several main line train stations are also close by. Used as a destination of choice for leaders of state, film stars and motor sport royalty, the hotel has welcomed the President of France, President Kennedy’s family, Steve McQueen, Sir Stirling Moss OBE and a regular guest for the Le Mans 24 hours, Derek Bell MBE. These are just a few names from a long list of personalities that have enjoyed the hotel’s hospitality over the years. The Hotel de France has been privately and independently owned for over 100 years. The beautiful Art Deco style building boasts many traditional features, both inside and out. An extensive and sympathetic internal refurbishment was undertaken in 2014 following a change of ownership.. Each of our individually designed bedrooms, finished to the highest standards, have a chic and luxurious look, with modern en-suite facilities. Residents can also enjoy our heated riverside swimming pool and garden. Our restaurant, Le Relais du Ronsard, is the ideal place for a long, leisurely lunch, a romantic candlelit dinner for two or a family celebration. Enjoy delicious seasonal dishes, prepared by our chefs, who have served at the hotel for over 25 years. The bar features the history the hotel has enjoyed with the Le Mans 24 hour race along the length of its wall. The entire team at the Hotel de France look forward to offering you a warm welcome and to providing a memorable stay. The Brasserie Bar is open every day except Sunday for breakfast and lunch, with a limited menu served on Sunday evening and Monday lunch and evening. The Relais de Ronsard restaurant is open five days a week, including Sunday lunchtime, and is closed from Sunday evening and all day on Monday.

We have stayed many times at this hotel in the past, when it was in the former ownership, going right back to 1991. It was however 5 years since we last had the opportunity to visit. The hotel has been refurbished since our last visit and this is usually bad sign in our experience these days, but we were delighted to find in this case that it was an improvement without removing any of the character of the hotel. We will certainly continue staying in the future as long as it remains in its current style and genuinely retains its famous history. Exceptional hotel in this modern age of boring and fancifully described boutique hotels.

Hotel de France was a charming hotel and the racing theme with the link to nearly Le Mans made it feel unique and special. We were only there one night on our way to the South West of France and we wish we could have stayed longer and eaten in the restaurant. We will definitely be coming back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, a lovely hotel the only slight down side being that it seemed to be full of British guests which detracted from the 'Frenchness' of such a lovely rural French location. Not really a complaint and I guess this shows how successful the hotel is. Excellent restaurant. Would definitely stay there again

Bonjour M Rigaudiere,Merci d'avoir pris le temps de laisser vos commentaires.Je suis tellement désolée que votre radiateur travaillait encore dans la salle de bains. En fait, l'interrupteur est à l'extérieur de la salle de bain, mais c’est vrai, c’est pas facile à trouver. Je suis désolée que cela n'a pas été rectifié pour vous. Nous sommes ravis que vous avez apprécié le reste de votre séjour et espérons vous accueillir à nouveau bientôt. Avec mes sincères salutations, Sally Directrice

Madame Loisel,Je suis désolée que vous n’avez pas aimé la salle de douche mais nous avons testé la douche et ce fonctionne correctement pour nous. Je n’étais pas en mesure de changer votre chambre, comme je l'ai expliqué, nous étions complet. Cependant, nous prenons votre opinion et nous sommes à la recherche des moyens de rendre la salle plus agréable. En ce qui concerne les nombreux clients anglais, c’est vrai que nous avons beaucoup ici actuellement, mais de dire que nous sommes un parti pris envers eux est injuste et faux. Nous avons des clients français, allemand, espagnol et italien ici aujourd'hui et ils ont tous apprécié leur séjour. Nous sommes juste heureux d'avoir autant de clients aimables de partout dans le monde! Nous vous remercions de prendre le temps de laisser vos commentaires.SallyDirectrice

This hotel is excellent and should at least be given a 4-5 star status. It was a shame that workmen next door made a lot of noise with drilling and raising scaffolding but this we know will not be forever. Our overall opinion of the hotel was exciting, quirky and retro. The service was excellent and speaking English was a great bonus. The local staff were of particular help and could not have helped us more. The little town was cute and could not get any appointments in the beauty salon for several days which proves how popular the whole place is. We were in the annex which was a shame as the hotel rooms were very special. We will go back when able to book in the main establishment however the annex was excellent giving us all our needs. Maybe the only addition may have been access to terestial tv in uk as so many of the clients are British. Also wifi by the pool! Thank you Hotel de France for our very pleasant stay.

Pleasant helpful staff - unfortunately our visit coincided with the two nights when the restaurant was not open but the Brasserie provided a simple plat du jour which was very acceptable. Being older guests we found the narrow, steep stairs to our 2nd floor room quite difficult to manage but this is understandable in a building of this age. Generally we enjoyed our visit and were made to feel very welcome.

Stayed here many times as a child/teenager in the late seventies, early eighties and always remembered it fondly - it's nice to see that even though it's under new ownership, it is still a wonderful place to relax and soak up the local atmosphere. The restaurant still produces first class food at a reasonable price. The only thing to have changed is the standard of the bedroom and en suite facilities - they are now excellent!

We have visited this same hotel back in September 2009 under a different management and enjoyed it then and we called it 'alo alo hotel!'.
The visit in July 2016 is a fantastic transformation as regards to the higher standard of room and lovely decor, and addition of the new swimming pool is a bonus. We enjoyed the dinner and excellent service. Note no lift!
If you like to see a vintage car you'll see it in this hotel!
We've recommended this hotel to our friends and all very satisfied and say we've visited your 'alo alo hotel!

Hotel de France has a very strong association with Le Mans and racing car teams. The recent refurbishment has preserved the hotel's character and association with motor racing. It's central town square location adds to the atmosphere and allows guests to watch people and experience the sight and sound of very special cars that visit the Hotel de France. The location is ideal for visiting the Lore valley's Chateaus, Vineyards, cities, towns and villages - a great base for local touring, specially in an old car that you can park overnight in the hotel's secure car park. The hotel staff are both friendly and efficient - you can trust their visit recommendations.

Seul point noir au tableau, le choix des aliments proposés au petit dejeuner. Le Yellow Tea n'est absolument pas recommadable et une plus grande gamme de confiture serait appréciable. Enfin, pourquoi ne pas ajouter de beurre salé et de fromages ?
Merci tout de même pour ce séjour. Nous reviendrons !

I hadn't realised it was a 3 fireplace hotel, it was certainly high quality, but it falls short of luxury which I thought was the definition of a 3 fireplace hotel.
The restaurant was excellent, but the breakfast was quite poor with limited choices and the jambon in particular was poor quality. We had assumed breakfast was included in our room rate when it wasn't, (my mistake for not checking properly) but had we known it was an extra charge, we wouldn't have had breakfast there after our first morning.

Our room was fine, but wifi in the room was variable and the wardrobe had been cut in half to fit it into the room so you couldn't really hang clothes properly.

Having said that, we loved the atmosphere of the hotel, the pool was great and we would certainly stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only downside was that the restaurant was closed Sunday and Monday ( which we were aware of) so we could only eat in the bar / brasserie with a very restricted menu with the same menu du jour for both days. Next time we will book between Tuesday and Saturday. The double de-luxe rooms appear to be much more luxurious than the twin room we had but cost the same

I liked the decor - very classy and comfortable and the English couple running the place were very helpful and attentive. As a solo traveller I felt very welcome and at ease. The dinner was lovely as was the breakfast in the morning. I couldn't fault it in any way. Great location in a lovely town - in very pretty square and perfect if you're exploring the Loir et Cher region or going to Le Mans 24 hrs.

From our arrival to departure the management & staff could not have been more helpful or attentive. The furnishings were incredibly tasteful & it was a lovely touch having subtle lighting switched on & a vintage radio playing soft music as you entered the room for the first time. The food was superb & all service, faultless. We have already recommended the Hotel De France to our friends & made a point of returning to the Hotel 3 days ago on our journey home. We will most certainly visit again next year. A special credit should go to the manager, Sally & also to her colleague Anna. Both ladies went out of their way to make our stay a good one. This Hotel should be a minimum 3 star !!!!!

Dear Mr Le Sueur, We hope that you got home safely and that you are feeling better. We are very glad that on the whole, you enjoyed your stay with us. To address your points…. It is our normal routine to announce the amuse bouche when it arrives at the table and I am sorry that we missed this step with you. I have reiterated the importance to the team so thank you for bringing it to my attention. I must admit that I was somewhat confused by your comments about your meal. I puzzled all night about what you could have meant and then it suddenly dawned on me this morning. You ordered the Ris de Veau, a classic French dish of sweetbreads (organ meat from the throat or stomach of a young cow, in this case the throat) and not, as I think you may have imagined, a veal steak served with rice. We have many clients who come to us just for this dish but I do understand that it has a very particular texture and taste, especially if you are expecting something else. We do have this dish written in both French and English on the menu to try an eliminate any possible confusion but I am sorry that you were disappointed. I hope that you will come back and see us again in the future – next time, I would highly recommend the Fillet of Charolais Beef with homemade Béarnaise sauce which will show you that our chefs are second to none. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your comments. With kind regards, Sally Carpenter Directrice

I am sorry that you didn't sleep too well as you were too hot. Our duvets are all season duvets with one part for summer and one for spring and winter that clip together to make a 13 tog duvet for the winter. We had switched to the autumn duvet a few weeks prior to your visit as the average temperatures had fallen to a night time low of about 10°. We do leave a fluffy blanket in the wardrobe should it be required. Very occasionally, we find that clients have taken their duvet out of the duvet cover and just used the cover. Of course, if you had been with us any longer we would have swapped you back to the light summer duvet.Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback, it is very much appreciated. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the future.Kind regards,Sally CarpenterDirectrice

I had looked forward to visiting the hotel for about 18 months, usually such anticipation leads to disappointment, not in this case it exceeded my high expectations.
I need to find an other reason to visit and stay for more than one night. Hopefully when you will again have your chicken and rabbit dish on the menu, incidentally you do it an injustice by describing it as 'chicken and rabbit pieces'.
Thank you a perfect end to what had already been an excellent holiday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. We thought it was excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a great stopover when travelling through France and for a longer stay also. We stayed in the luxury family room which was beautifully decorated with comfy beds. The hotel is situated in a pretty village by the Loire river. It has a lovely atmosphere and is a very relaxing place to stay. We would definitely recommend it to anyone and we hope to be back next year.

This hotel is a delight to visit because it feels as though you are staying with friends. We stayed there over 20 years ago and are so pleased that the welcome is still very warm. The rooms have improved very much and are very well finished and decorated - and very comfortable.

The stairs are very narrow and steep. Many of the guests are no longer young or very fit, so it is essential that strong hand rails are placed on the stairs - the ropes do not allow proper support and help for those with mobility problems.

Cher Monsieur Vivier, Je suis navrée que votre séjour chez nous ne vous a pas plu. Tout d’abord, je présente toutes mes excuses pour le retard rencontré lors de votre check-in, en effet, vous êtes arrivé au cours d'un service ou le restaurant était plein. Je vous ai dit « bonsoir » dès que vous avez sonné la cloche et je vous ai dit que j’allais m’occuper de vous dès que possible. En ce moment, nous sommes au milieu de la haute saison et toute l'équipe travaille de leur mieux pour faire en sorte que nos clients sont pris en charge aussi bien que possible. Je suis désolée que vous n’avez pas pu manger à l'extérieur, mais toutes les tables avaient été réservées auparavant par les clients de l'hôtel et, en aucun cas, cela ne fut un prétexte. Merci d'avoir pris le temps de nous avoir laissé vos commentaires.Sally CarpenterDirectrice

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, which was as a result of the hotel's history with motorsport at Le Mans. It was great to see that the hotel had undergone restoration and renovation, but without losing any of the charm, character and the smell of engine oil!

I was very happy to visit your iconic Hotel having read so much about the history of Le Mans 24hours. I really have nothing to criticise at all and am pleased that ,if anything, the automotive history has been retained and augmented by you the new owner. Also your refurbishments have been excellent from heresay of friends who have stayed under the family ownership. As a minor aside not a criticism I would like to have seen more cues to John Wyer and probably a room or bar in his name
Thanks

Nous sommes très surpris d’apprendre que vous n’avez pas aimé votre chambre. Nous avons refait à neuf chaque chambre de l’hôtel l’année dernière et comme vous pourriez le voir dans nos autres critiques sur internet, nos clients sont d’habitude vraiment ravis de la qualité de nos chambres ainsi que de la décoration. Je suis vraiment désolée que vous ayez attendu trop longtemps pour votre café. Nous avons choisi de préparer le café sur commande plutôt que sur une machine à café où le café est préparé longtemps à l’avance, car nous pensons qu’il est meilleur comme ça. Cependant, lors des moments où nous recevons beaucoup de monde, cela peut vouloir dire que le temps d’attente sera plus long. Je comprends toutefois que vous ayez attendu trop longtemps et je vous présente mes excuses pour cela. Merci d’avoir pris le temps de nous laisser votre commentaire.Sally Carpeter, Directrice

This is my 3rd stay here, usually as a stop-over on longer journeys. I love coming here! The recent refurbishments have been tastefully done and in keeping with the hotels heritage

Back to the evening restaurant - perhaps the manager or staff should make customers aware that you need to book for evening meals

This was a fabulous traditional French hotel. We only booked for one night on route to the Dordogne but could have easily stayed for much longer. It would be a perfect place for touring the area. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. They kept the restaurant open until we arrived as our journey was delayed. I would recommend a stay here unreservedly. Lovely setting, lovely room, lovely staff.

The stay was simply wonderful; this is our second visit and we will definitely come again. Everything about the hotel is lovely: the location, décor, staff service and friendliness and the scrumptious food in the restaurant. There was just one little irritation and that was that WiFi was not available in the bedrooms only in the bar area. I have teenage children, they need free WiFi!! Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

Amazing value for money, superb dining and excellent wine made dinner memorable.The quality of the food and wine was 5 star. We were made to feel extremely welcome from arrival to departure . Nothing was a problem to the hotel -we arrived later than expected and food was ready. We could not recommend you highly enough .

I think it could have been ranked higher than 2 fireplaces and 2 pots. It was better than I was expecting. The room was smallish, but very nicely decorated and very comfortable. the aircon was an added bonus on a very hot night and the pool was lovely. All the staff were friendly, and the whole place very clean. Our evening meal was delicious. We would love to stay here again as it was such a nice experience.

Très belle étape, personnel professionnel et avenant.
Belle décoration, chambre grande et très propre.
Environnement nocturne bruyant.
Petit déjeuner convivial.
Diner gastronomique décevant, service perfectible et par malchance, la viande avait dû souffrir de la canicule (canard)
Ceci dit à recommander !

L'accueil par une réceptionniste-serveuse a été déplorable. Cela a gâché notre séjour alors que l'hôtel est ravissant.

Chère Mme Marcout,Je suis vraiment désolée que votre séjour chez nous n’ai pas été parfait. Nous nous efforçons de toujours faire de notre mieux dans notre accueil et notre service aux clients mais il semble que dans cette occasion nous ayons échoué. C’est inacceptable que vous ayez été traitée de cette manière. Cela n’est absolument pas habituel pour nous, comme vous pouvez le voir sur internet nos retours de clients sont d’ordinaire excellents. Je suis déçue que vous ne m’en ayez pas touché mot lorsque vous étiez parmi nous, lorsque nous avons discuté après le dîner et que je vous ai donné le code pour rentrer à l’Hotel ou lors de votre départ de l’Hotel le lendemain matin. C’est toujours mon objectif personnel de m’assurer du bien être des clients. J’ai refait un point avec notre équipe sur l’importance de la satisfaction de nos clients par le don d’un service excellent. Merci à vous d’avoir pris le temps de nous laisser vos remarques. Nous apprécions réellement cette démarche.Très cordialement,Sally Carpenter, Directrice

One of the nicest hotels we've stayed in during our many visits to France. The restaurant was up there with the nicest too. We will look forward to visiting again.

This was one of the best hotel stays I have ever had. It was just a one night stay to break up the drive from Caen to the South West and I wish we had stayed longer. The building itself is simply beautiful, the rooms were fabulous (we stayed in the annex), and the restaurant gave us a superb first meal to start our holiday.
Above all though it was the staff that made our stay. Exceptional in every way. Bravo !

This was an excellent hotel and very good value. The staff were very professional, helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and extremely comfortable. We appreciated the tea and coffee making facilities and the quiet fan in our room. There was a lovely atmosphere in the dining room and our meal was really delicious. The only thing which would have improved our stay would have been freshly squeezed orange juice and fresh fruit salad for breakfast but this is a minor point.
I think this hotel should be ranked with 3 fireplaces and 3 pots.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

We really enjoyed staying at Hotel De France and are so pleased that this iconic hotel is being lovingly cared for and maintained in such good condition. Nestled in the centre of the pretty little village of La Chartre-sur-le-Loir, the hotel is well worth seeking out. At Hotel De France, people can soak-up the history it shares with the Circuit de la Sarthe (Le Mans motor racing circuit)and the world famous 24hr Race. Thank you Sally and the team for making our stay a memorable one.
