“Novotel Amboise”
Reviewed 1 November 2011

A great location, very quiet, if you don't mind having to drive into the town to eat. Rooms are great and very clean, my only issue was the temperature, far too warm! Every day we had turned the heating practically off, to return to the room and the cleaners had switched it to max again!! The bar staff are very slow and we found on numerous occasions had to hunt them out to ask for a drink, seemed far more interested in the guests who were eating there, spending more money than we were I suppose. Restaurant and especially breakfast expensive, we didn't bother we drove the 5mins into town where there are some fabulous restaurants and the local supermarket more than catered for our breakfast and lunch requirements.

This was our base for exploring the Loire Valley. The hotel was more than we were expecting from a Novotel - it had a fantastic view out over the Chateau, a decent restaurant and a great pool. We found the staff very helpful.

The rooms themselves were OK - fairly basic, but comfortable and clean. However, if you did not have a car it would be reasonably far from anything.

If you are looking for a comfortable base for a few days in the Loire, this is a good option

Clean, tidy but not good value given that it is out of town.

This is a very pleasant hotel. Although out of town, it is an easy 20 min walk into Amboise. The gardens around the hotel are very pleasant, and the pool was lovely on a warm October evening. The breakfast was the best we had on the tour by a long shot.

Good modern hotel. Slightly upmarket from UK Travelodge type. Well laid out dining room with distant views over the city. Convenient for walking into Amboise and close to good road links to other places of interest in the area. Good parking facilities and quiet, well designed room.

No problems communicating with hotel staff - make a little effort with pidgin French and they will be happy to respond in English if at all possible. Make noisy demands in English (or the American version) and they will, understandably, respond with a lack of comprehension.

The usual French problem with catering - vegetarians don't feature when menus are designed and that leaves little other than eggs, cheese, and salad - if you are lucky.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over Amboise.

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from Le Havre to the Charente Maritime region. Amboise is a beautiful 'fairytale' town on the Loire and the Novotel is a lovely hotel with the most welcoming staff. We enjoyed a swim in the outdoor pool to cool down after our car journey - it was 34 degrees. Superb views of the chateau and fields above the town. Good choice for dinner and children's meals. Enjoyed seeing the town and the royal chateau of Amboise after checking out the next morning. The maid even ran down to Reception as we were checking out with a notebook one of our children had left in the room. Free internet and X-Box in Reception.

Room Tip: Some rooms look over the gardens/pool at the back of the hotel, but even at the front it was quiet
