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.
visiting Chenonceau chateau
parking was not easy
Only 2 power points in the room
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.
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.
