The location is just done the street from downtown Amboise, the Chateau and very quiet, even though it's on the main road. Slept very well with the windows open, beds were comfortable. Room size was standard French size room, but this one had a balcony to go out onto, so it was like an extension of the room. Bathroom, as...

My friends and I had booked rooms in advance -- but when we arrived, we walked up the flight of stairs from the parking lot to the building, and had to knock on the door for some time before anyone came to the door. We found out that the restaurant was closed for 4 days that weekend (not sure if...

Two nights here, 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts. Delightful service, good food. Room appropriate size for France. No a/c but a fan was provided. Madame was very helpful and her children were polite and smiled and spoke. Server Sam is excellent. He helped me with luggage as there are steps involved.

Only 4 stars as the hotel has no elevator and 1+ flight of stairs to get to the room. However, the owners/ managers were very helpful with the luggages. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with everything needed for travelers comfort. The on site restaurant was great with an excellent service and offered diners and breakfasts of superior quality....

Outside of Amboise a little, but plenty of parking and a very comfortable room with a terrace. Breakfast was well worth the 12 euro, a full buffet with anything you could want. Staff was friendly and tried very hard to help us and understand our English. Hotel has a restaurant attached which seemed very busy and although we did not...

This bed and breakfast hotel (a gite) has multiple advantages for the traveller at a reasonable price. It is located on the south bank of the Loire in the charming little town of Amboise. Close to Tours, Amboise is centrally located for anyone touring the famous chateaux of the area (only ten minutes from Chenonceau) or the beautiful countryside of...

In the past month of September with my husband we visited the Loire Valley and the Castles. The hotel has a convenient location, very close to some of the Castles. Amboise is only 10 minutes driving. Chenonceau about 30 minutes, Blois 20 minutes. You can organize the visit departing from the hotel. The hotel and restaurant it is run by...

Clean comfortable, no tea making facilities in the room and being British that's a must I'm afraid. The breakfast is continental but there's plenty of it. We ate in the restaurant the first night, the food was good as was the service, the next day we walked into Ambois where there are many restaurants more competitivly priced. The room itself...

I booked three rooms in this hotel with two months in advance for our family vacation in France. I just received an email confirming the reservation and at the time of the booking asked MYRIAM for prepay or leaving a CC to backup the reservation. The answer was that this was not necessary, that payment will be done at our...
