The Château Belmont has been a renowned hotel in Tours for a long time. French chef Jean Bardet made this place the headquarters of the entire Tours bourgeoisie for nearly twenty years. Nowadays, even after Jean Bardet's retirement, the Château Belmont remains a safe bet in Tours.

    Location 6.0 /10

    The Château Belmont hotel is located in the north of Tours, just off of Avenue Tranchée, across the Loire River heading north. The city centre is around a 20 minute walk away but since September 2013 when the tramway appeared in Tours, it has been served with a stop just 300m from the hotel. There are few shops or tourist and cultural sites in the hotel's vicinity. You have to cross the Loire towards the south and stroll through the city centre of Tours to find these.

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    The hotel's 65 guest rooms are located in the château and residence buildings. The guest rooms in the château are decorated in an antique style with restored furniture that belonged to Jean Bardet. The overall effect is sober rather than flashy, with soft greys and beige brightened up with mauve, red and purple. Some of the guest rooms under the rafters are more cosy. In the residence section, the guest rooms are decorated in a much more contemporary style, in shades of lime green, orange and even pink fuchsia. All of the guest rooms have a kitchenette with a microwave, hot plates and crockery. They are equipped with a flat-screen television, an iPod station, a coffee-maker, a minibar and a safe. Wi-Fi Internet access is free throughout the hotel. The bathrooms are decorated in a modern style with mosaics and tiled floors and are fitted with either an Italian shower or a bathtub. Some of the guest rooms in the residence section also have a balcony.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The Château Belmont has been a veritable institution in Tours for almost 20 years. This gourmet restaurant from Jean Bardet, a famous chef from Tours, was the haunt of the entire Tours bourgeoisie. When Jean Bardet retired, the restaurant became a luxury hotel. The Château Belmont was sold at the end of 2007 and reopened in April 2011 after renovation work. All of the decoration was modernised and a spa was built. Only the original walls remain. The Château Belmont is made up of different buildings. The original building dates from the end of the 17th century and was extended in 1986. The decor in the lobby is modern, boasting warm tones of red, brown and beige. Guest can relax in a corner by the fire in the various little lounges. A little further on is a beautiful antique glass roof which lets the natural light fall in on a cosy little veranda.
    For some relaxation, head to the 5 Mondes spa, where a heated swimming pool, hammam, Jacuzzi and a gym await. Massages using natural and organic products are also available. The decor in the spa is sober and Zen, with light grey as the dominant colour. As an extra bonus, the swimming pool and the gym overlook the park.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Today you can still come for lunch or dinner at the hotel, but it is no longer a gourmet restaurant and you won't see Jean Bardet at the stove. Seasonal French cuisine is prepared in the kitchen, and of course the gastronomy of the Touraine region is emphasised. The decoration in the two dining rooms is contemporary and sober, and the rooms have a magnificent view of the hotel's park. In the summer, guests can eat outside on the charming terrace..

    To know

    The tramway finally arrived in Tours in September 2013, and there is a tram stop not far from the hotel.
