the location and the comfort
The studio apartment rooms exceeded all our expectations for size, comfort and fixtures & fittings. The fact that you can't park outside the rooms adds to the peace and quiet of the place. We did not use the restaurant but bread and croissants are available to order from reception at extrememely reasonable prices. We found nothing to dislike
Nicely designed interior (more than we expected and were pleased). Friendly and helpfull staff. Good value for money. Nice location. Was hard to find, it will be useful to have more signs on the way.
The cost of the room reflected the location and quality of the facility, Suitable for a budget stay in a family type trip. The location is out of the town of Amboise - so a car is needed to do any activities. The facility is unfinished, drains are open, footpaths not sealed, roads have potholes, Walkways to front door were not sealer, so the mud from outside finished uo inside. The furniture is pacrical, but poor quality. Privacy for each couple was a problem. Adjoining beedrooms not a good idea (noisy)
The apartment was very modern, very comfortable, very new and well equiped for self catering holidays. It is an ideal location for visiting the Castles of the Loire Valley, canoeing on the Loire or Cher rivers, or exploring by bicycle. The resort is not finished yet and therefore on-site facilities are, at present, very limited. However, the facilities of Amboise are only 3 to 5 minutes drive from the resort.
Good for families. Apartments are amazing inside, everything you need is in them. The grounds are no way near completed yet - we read reviews saying work was underway but we thought the work would have been completed by now but it's no-where near complete yet.
Quite good value/price ratio which makes all the bad sides look unimportant. New development, clean and new furniture. Reasonably sized rooms. Convenient location if you want to visit chateaux by driving. Kitchenette with microwave and dishwasher. Underdeveloped site (Oct 2010). Parking quite far from accommodation (from 300 to 500m). The apartment had a small kitchenette but there were absolutely no utensils or even a glass or cup for tea/coffee. I had to beg at the reception to lend two wine glasses which one would consider obligatory in a French hotel.
Note that there is no restaurants at the hotel.
The apartment layout with quite well equipped kitchen was great. Quite comfortable and plenty of room. The location. It is a bit far from Amboise and is a little inconvenient if you want to nip into town. Also a little sparse, but obviously new, so will likely improve in facilities and layout.
Very clean appartments with good services No English channels on the tv
Hotel de charme Extralarge bed not very comfortable. Relatively small breakfast room (for the size of the hotel).
This is a truly charming hotel with staff who were friendly and helpful at all times.It was a great base for touring the Chateaux Nothing
Having a pool to cool off in and relax made the stay at this hotel enjoyable For what was on offer at breakfast we found poor in comparison to other hotels we stayed in and expensive at 10 euros per head.
- very clean, newly refurbished room - quiet, private park and garage - did'nt see facilities e.g. sauna as advertise - rather pricey for size of room
The room is well appointed. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is great.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was a particularly charming place and next time I shall definitely request Room 6 I found that everything met, or exceeded, my expectation
It is beautiful hotel...more like a B&B in terms of its charm, comfort, and peace and quiet. It has a wonderful garden area. There is also off-street parking protected behind locked gates at night. The staff was very welcoming and helpful in providing tourist advice. The Hotel is very close to shopping and tourist attractions including the historic châteaux. Couldn't recommend it more. There was nothing we didn't like about this hotel.
It is a beautiful place to stay. I would go there again for sure. The soap smelled funny - for real.
The grounds were very picturesque and the staff were very helpful. It seemed like an ideal place to stay a few days to relax and soak in Amboise Our room did not afford much privacy as it faced on to the driveway and entrance.
lovely place. would stay there again.
room comfort, quiet, access late at night without problem, friendly staff all rooms are no smoking. I like my freedom to do what I like in my own private hotel room
pleasant staff too far out of town with no bar or restuarant facilities, just like a travel lodge. 25 minute walk into town
Most enjoyable stay, staff were pleasant and accomodating, secure parking a definate plus... wifi another plus. Would definitely stay again. Would have been nice if located closer to restaurants and shops.
room good wasnt as close to centre but easy 20min walk
The management was very helpful to us in finding fuel for our car during a time when there was a problem obtaining it. We booked a room for three people even though there was on only two of us. It was just right.
The location (Amboise) no
Very comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, helpful staff, quiet location
Reception staff were very helpful and friendly, room extremely comfortable, clean and well designed Overpriced breakfast - said to be American, but only hot food was sausages and they had run out of scambled egg.
Very pleasant and clean hotel. Reception staff offered without prompting to store our bikes in their garage.
Clean, fresh hotel in excellent location.
Great staff. Great location. Seems to be run down and needs a face-lift internally.
Style of the hotel especially the bedroom. The availabilty of the garage eas a bonusu No
Very easy to find - great location. Very nice staff.
The location was just where we needed to be. The front desk was very professional and helpful.
Centrally located and very pleasant surroundings
Staff - very friendly and helpful
Location is fantastic, and the hotel staff friendly and helpful
The hotel room is newly renovated. It located very close to the Train Station (within 10 minutes walk) and the shopping centre (within 3 minutes walk) of Tours.
The hotel is right in the centre of Tours so very convenient for sight-seeing, restaurants and shopping. It is also close to the train and bus stations. It was clean and comfortable. Parking is very limited - there is a public carpark nearby but it was very full and we were lucky to get a space. The room we had was comfortable but being at the top of the hotel, it was dark with only one small window - a draw back on a sunny day.
Location is central: close to the railway station, but far enough not to hear and see those people grouping near the station. Also very close to tourist office, old town and Hotel de Ville (just in front). The room was great - spacious, with a comfortable sofa in front of tv, a desk, enough room to even have a morning gymnastics)). It was very quiet which is definitely a plus! Beautiful lobby. The price af breakfast 18 euros is too high.
Superb staff - some of the friendliest I´ve encountered. Breakfast finished at 10; restaurant closed on sundays (!)
Air conditioning in room - wifi in room - trolley for luggage
The hotel staff were awesome, the breakfast was good, and the room was roomy, clean, and comfortable. The location is about a 20 minute walk (mostly uphill) from town and taxis are scarce or nonexistent.
Views and proximity to Amboise. Helpful staff None
Nice clean modern hotel Cost of drinks very dear in comparison to Ireland
the room was nice.
Beautiful setting no
The chlidren liked the pool, the rooms were clean and comfrotable
Very familiar. Very well equiped. Staff very friendly. Very good breakfeast.
A bit off center with a nice view of the Amboise castle. Very friendly and helpful staff. We spent one week there and enjoyed the region and hotel so much that we'll return next year. The swimming pool should be heated up
The food and bar operations were poorly run with a very disappointing product
Very comfortable bed, excellent sofa bed for children, buffet breakfast, pool and mini golf. Location also very good - walking distance to Amboise centre
clean and very friendly , helpful staff
Size of room No outward views
well appointed rooms restaurant v. expensive
The location was sublime as we could see Amboise Castle from our room and could walk to many little shops and restaurants in the town of Amboise, including Leonardo DaVinci's home and final resting place at the Castle.
Room was extremely quiet and comfortable; staff was very professional and helpful; convenient walk to town; The food in restaurant was excellent quality but very expensive.
Great staff. Perfect location for visiting chateaus in Loire Valley (1/2 hour or less to Chenonceau, Chambord, Chiverny). Right next to Amboise Chateau. Wonderful restaurant. No elevator, though desk attendant insisted on carrying all luggage up several flights of stairs when we checked in.
location was good, the city and countryside great. the resturant was impressive--dinner was expensive but worth it and the service was very good. the breakfast was also very good. our room was in the old part of the hotel and was just ok. it needs to be updated. the walls between rooms are not very insulated for noise and made for a long night.
the location and the views from our room the restaurant was very expensive
Lovely room overlooking the river. Bags carried by reception. Prepared wine beautifully for social occasion. Dressing gowns and slippers great for relaxing and comfort. Pleasant staff. Cuisine superb. One reception staff outstanding for help and friendly approach. Bed very comfortable. One reception staff was rather aloof and business like. I felt I would have been treated in a more friendly manner if I had driven up in an expensive car. Need option of vegetables with meals....bunch of rocket for $7 bit steep even if the dressing was excellent.
first impression of room not that great after Les Artes however beds, bathroom and size was very good. The 36 restaurant was incredible. The only thing was the hairdryer needs to be upgraded.
T ,he room was huge and the atmosphere was lovely. The restaurant is one of the best we have ever eaten at. You can walk from the hotel to a lot of places (Chateau, weekly market, Loire River, restaurants) Everyone there was very friendly. Nice grounds Although there is wireless there is not a computer available if you do not have your own. This made communication home difficult
The location in the center of Amboise was ideal, the hotel was very comfortable and well appointed, bed linen was excellent - high level of attention to detail
Staff could not do enough and cuisine great although as only a set menu perhaps not everyones 1st choice but will definitely be returning in the future Having to leave
Beautiful, large rooms with lovely furnishings. Comfortable bed with very nice linens. Large bathroom with updated fixtures like double sinks, separate bathtub and shower.
The hotel location is good and staff are so kind and friendly. The room is excellent atmosphore. No restaurant for dinner. Breakfast is a bit expensive, 12 Euro, but basic.
our room and view were wonderful, so was the location the front desk attendant was a bit stuffy...but eventually warmed up.
The staff are very nice and helpful. The room we had is way too small, especially for a 4-star hotel. The breakfast is very poor (you hardly have anything to choose from) and is not worth 12 euros at all.
clean room with plenty of room and strong , consistent internet access
The room was absolutely fantastic (spacious, clean, confortable, quiet, etc.). The service was also amazing and the hotel delivers what it promisses. I strong recomend this hotel. The reception speaks a very good English and is ready to help the guests anytime. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Everything was perfect
Fabulous location, great views, wonderful staff
The reception was excellent and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The gentleman who showed us to the room explained everything to us and made a dinner reservation at a very nice restaurant. We also liked the parking facilities with the gates being locked overnight. Breakfast was also very good. It was difficult to spot the entrance when arriving from the east and we had trouble getting back round to it. A good restaurant for dinner in the hotel would have been an added bonus.
location ,style hotel should have dinner
Beautifully maintained, comfortable and welcoming. Impressive location next to the castle and on the banks of the river. We will certainly return to spend more time with you and will also recommend you to our friends.
everything a very relaxing break, hope to return, accommodation is fantastic, very friendly helpful staff we did not dislike anything but a restaurant would be nice.
Had a great room up top, overlooking the garden, comfortable and good bathroom all in a house built in the twelfth century. There was also a nice sitting room downstairs with open fireplace. The service was great, enthusiastic and helpful which added to our experience.
Location, location, location, with views of the Amboise Chateau and easy walking distance from the town Le Manoir Saint Thomas is perfectly located. There is safe parking in the grounds. The staff are delightful and the rooms nice. Bit pricey, but if you are happy to pay you will have a very nice stay.
We loved Le Manoir St. Thomas and would definitely recommend it to friends. It was lovely, the staff was wonderful and the location was great.
Very helpful people - I arrived very late due to flight delays and instructions were very provided for me very clearly.
The manor is historic and very charming, but also has modern touches to make it comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was simple, but lovely.
The building and grounds are simply lovely. Our room was incredibly spacious, comfortable and well appointed with a large and luxurious bathroom. The desk workers were helpful, cordial, knowedgeable and spoke English fluently. We liked Alla in paricular, as she is simply charming. We had hoped to have dinner in their highly-recommended restaurant, but after September 30th it was no longer open.
The location was excellent, easy walking to the chateau, restaurants, shopping. Staff were very helpful and attentive, nice grounds to enjoy a glass of wine, The room was very comfortable and clean.
The welcome, the staff, the tranquility so close to the heart of the town, the elegance of the building
Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were second to none.
Beautiful hotel very convenient to centre of Amboise. Style is of restored chateau so don't expect ultra modern facilities, but it fits in perfectly with the ambience of the Loire Valley. Residents' lounge delightful with free wifi. Staff very helpful. Breakfast OK. 170 Euro is perhaps a little overpriced and we have stayed in equally high standard accommodation in Amboise for a bit less. However, this is a minor complaint and we would certainly consider staying there again.
We thought the setting was charming and very comfortable. The dinner we had was very good. We were disappointed it was as far from town as it was. We prefer to walk everywhere but we did drive into town each day.
Our visit was for just one night. But the hotel was quite and in a perfect country side location N/A
Too expensive for what was on offer.
Very nice staff and very clean in a central location Sunday and Monday evenings very noisy outside the hotel due to the open air resteraunts outside, I had a hard time sleeping until 2 A.M. when it quieted down.
The dining experience at the Chateau Seemed to be a lack of staff attentiveness since our last stay at the chateau 3 years ago.
Character of the hotel in this old castle. Buffet breakfast a bit expensive for array of choices.
Location. Evening meal excellent though overpriced. Breakfast excellent and also overpriced. A very small lounge area inadequate when weather is not hot enough to be outside.
Everything. Truly outstanding and memorable. Oustanding food, charming staff. Just perfect
Ambiente Old equipment
The staff were friendly and helpful and the chateau was beautiful
The course dinner is excellent with decent service. The room is rather small.
This was the best stay during our entire trip to France. We would go back in an instant! The room was huge and magnificent with french doors to a beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The bathroom was more or a spa with a tub, shower with numerous jets, two sinks, and private toilet. Big beautiful towels and bathrobes were set out for us. The petit dejeuner was beautifully presented and our hostess was absolutely divine. As a bonus we had a private parking spot in a garage. We couldn't ask for anything more! Everything was wonderful.
Exquisite room in a private house, private gardens, owner extremely helpful, great breakfast
The owners had a nice balance of being nice and helpful, but not invasive. I felt as if I was at home. It was very relaxing and quiet. Having only 3 rooms is nice...there weren't too many people coming in and out so it was more private. They have a private courtyard in the back which was very pretty. I definitely recommend the hotel. The owners are very sweet people and very good hostesses. They didn't have central air but they had a fan. However, I found that none of the hotels I stayed in in Amboise, Saumur and Paris had central air so just be prepared.
friendly proprietor who took trouble to ensure we were comfortable, swimming pool to ourselves, very nice large room, good breakfast, convenient location It was quite pricey even allowing for unfavourable £:euro ratio
The common sitting room and the breakfast one took in it were both lovely. The grounds are also very well kept up, and the pool looked inviting. The location is excellent, well within walking distance of everything. The hostess is charming. We actually stayed longer for breakfast than we intended on our final day before leaving for Paris since it was so comfortable there, and we were engaged in wonderful conversation with another couple from the us. There is also convenient parking on the premises. This is a b&b with three apartments. The one we stayed in was really for one person: the double-bed, shower, toilet and sink were in one small room with a small frosted glass divider separating the bed from the toilet and sink. The shower was open to the room. It helps if you have to have lived together for 37 years, as we have, to agree to this set-up, and still give it the positive rating that I did. If you don't like showering or going to the toilet in front of someone don't stay in this room. We did see one of the other apartments and it was much larger and lovely. Our hostess did offer to let us look elsewhere in the city for another apartment when we arrived, but we were tired, it was late, and she was charming and the rest of the b&b was very comfortable, so we stayed.
Hotel Bellevue was beautiful and in the perfect location! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean, modern, and had all the amenities needed. The hotel was beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend it.
Location is perfect. Wifi didn't work in our room and was very unreliable in common areas. Room was small, we had no telephone or television. There is no closet or drawers. No eating or drinking anything in your room, management strictly abides by this rule.
Room was very good. Location was perfect. We found the dinner selection and price to not be up to our expectations. We ended up going into Amboise and finding very nice dinner places with friendlier staff and better value
The dinner was excellent, and well served. The site and surroundings were lovely. There was no ac available in our room. In spite of what the proprietress said, we definitely needed it . Our wireless computer would not work in the room. Only 2 bath towels were provided for both room and pool. Fruit salad at breakfast was from a can.
the place very nice and quite wonderful. restaurant fantastic the w.c. outside the bath. no bidet . Stairs dangereus. Pool very very little. breakfast a little poor
It's a long way out of the town of Amboise, so you need a car which I didn't have.
Very relaxing location, in the heart of the Loire valley Internet does not work in the room because of the trees!!!
The hotel is beautiful, both charming and quiet, and the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. It's a great place to simply relax or to use as a base for Loire tours. One of my best ever hotel stays.
The room was just superb and luxurious. It really felt like we were staying in a castle. The owner was perfect. He was there was when needed him but not on top of you.
Lovely environment, quiet and peaceful. The chateau had lots of character and the rooms were decorated beautifully with excellent bathrooms. It was well located, just outside of Amboise.
Everything was very nice and comfortable; we received excellent service. N/A
It's the most beautiful castle imaginable in the most magical setting. A dream come to life. This hotel is not right in Amboise and is going to appeal to experienced travellers with a sense of adventure and romance. You'll need a map and plan to arrive before it gets dark or you will likely never find the Chateau.
Excellent service, beautiful building.
My husband and I stayed at this Chateau for 2 nights during our honeymoon in October while visiting the castles in Loire Valley. It's a few minutes from Amboise, and only a short drive to all the famous castles we wanted to visit. Since it was low season, we were the only two guests there, and the staff were amazing! Breakfast was great, our room was absolutely gorgeous, and BIG! The view from our room was breathtaking, I could sit by the window all day if I had time :p I wish we could have stayed longer, it felt like home. The chateau also have washing and drying machine for guests to use, free of charge! And it has an elevator!! We will definitely stay there again when we go back to the loire valley.
We enjoyed everything
Our host was most gracious and helpful. Our room was well appointed and fresh. The advertised air conditioning still needs to be installed.
Great setting and quality of the finish of the newly renovated chateau
Very good location. The girl at reception is very helpful - deal with her if you can (as per other comments). Compact basic rooms. Good for exploring Amboise. The free parking is about 300 metres away and if it's full then too bad. To access wifi you have to agree to some 'anti terrorism' conditions (you agree that your internet can be monitored) and then the net times-out after 1 hour.
The location of value for money of this hotel are unbeatable. The bathroom was a bit cold as there was no heater in the bathroom.
central position and helpful staff pretty basic!
The staff was very helpful and pleasant. It's a great location at a low rate. It's no frills, but has good basic amenities including free wireless internet (note that it is not encrypted if this is important to you). Definitely a "good buy" for its location in central Amboise near the Chateau.
Friendly welcome, clean facilities, good service, proximity to points of interest; wifi connection that actually works, willingness to help with little problems Could be a problem for older travellers carrying bags up and down stairs as there is no lift but I am sure that staff would provide assistance if required.
Great Location. Right in the middle of Amboise. Only one power point in the whole room (including bathroom), and the TV was plugged into that single point. Makes it difficult to use the internet, dry your hair, charge your batteries. Paid parking in the street.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Great location. No-parking space.There wasn´t a lift although it wasn´t a problem for us
Location Only 2 power points in the room
visiting Chenonceau chateau parking was not easy
Very helpful person on the reception when we arrived. Close to centre of town. Good value for money for a one night stay. Having to park the car some distance away and not being sure how safe it would be left there over night.
Good overall quality of food and local Difficult to find from description on documents downloaded.
Very comfortable. Excellent food. Ambiance good. Prices a bit on high side. Breakfast at €15/pp is a little steep.
Quiet place, lovely large rooms, very friendly personnel, excellent restaurant. Everything was perfect.
Comfort, quality yet very welcoming. We regretted not having a meal in the restaurant having already arranged to have a meal with the family in Auberge de bon labourer at Chenonceau. \No air conditioning or opneable windows in the room but felt safe enough to leave our door open to let in some fresh air.
Beautiful location, Excellent hosts and a superbly developed hotel in a peaceful setting. First class chef for those who enjoy nouvelle cuisine. Even allowing for the exchange rate, wine was rather expensive
Rooms were beautiful and large! Enjoyed a good soak in the deep tub too! We enjoyed a relaxing night here while visiting chateaus in the area! The staff couldn't have been nicer!! My only complaint would be it's a bit hard to find.
