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)
Very clean appartments with good services No English channels on the tv
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
the location and the comfort
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.
Note that there is no restaurants at the hotel.
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.
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.
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 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 location near the centre of town (400 metres). Comfortable room which was clean and practical. Free minio bar is a great idea. Dinner was good - but the menu was a little limited. Room service breakfast was good value for money. Onsite parking was very convenient. The hotel was good value for the cost. Diasspointed at no porter assistance with baggage - but the provision of trolleys and easy access to the garage compensated a little. We had a problem with the bar fridge in one of the rooms (it did not work).
Nice, modern, comfortable and well-located hotel. Good breakfast. The shower-bath was quite dangerous, being too high, narrow and with no grab-rail.
Hotel is located within easy walking distance of the historic old town, the Blois chateau, and many restaurants. The air-conditioned room was appreciated because it was quite hot while we were in Blois. Parking is available at the hotel for 7 Euro per day (about $10). This was a more convenient choice for us than public parking in the river-side parking lot across the street, which usually looked full from the hotel all the toward the old town. Note that breakfast at the hotel costs 14 Euro per person (about $20).
Great location, secure parking and a high standard throughtour the hotel. Breakfast was great but dinner a little disappointing in execution rather than menu choice. No complaints at all apart from the dinner which could have been better produced given the raw materials available
Convenient location and handy for touring the Loire Valley and its chateaux. Within a short walking distance of the town centre. No. As a constructive suggestion, a hand rail in the bath would be useful!
Great position, very helpful staff, room and breakfast very good. Doesn't look great from the outside!
We liked the central location and also the easy accessibility to the cycling routes around Blois. We found the duplex room arrangement useful and spacious.
spa zone is really nice after a tiring day
- 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
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.
lovely place. would stay there again.
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
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.
The room is well appointed. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is great.
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.
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
It is a beautiful place to stay. I would go there again for sure. The soap smelled funny - for real.
Hotel de charme Extralarge bed not very comfortable. Relatively small breakfast room (for the size of the hotel).
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.
The location (Amboise) no
Clean, fresh hotel in excellent 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.
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
Very comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, helpful staff, quiet location
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.
room good wasnt as close to centre but easy 20min walk
Very pleasant and clean hotel. Reception staff offered without prompting to store our bikes in their garage.
Nice clean modern hotel Cost of drinks very dear in comparison to Ireland
Very familiar. Very well equiped. Staff very friendly. Very good breakfeast.
The food and bar operations were poorly run with a very disappointing product
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 chlidren liked the pool, the rooms were clean and comfrotable
Very comfortable bed, excellent sofa bed for children, buffet breakfast, pool and mini golf. Location also very good - walking distance to Amboise centre
Beautiful setting no
Air conditioning in room - wifi in room - trolley for luggage
the room was nice.
clean and very friendly , helpful staff
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
We had a warm and friendly welcome. The room was unique and very comfortable and, the hotel in a good location in order to explore the area.
Everything, and the food in their restaurant was magnificent Nothing
The location is ideal, walking distance to the Chateau de Chenonceau. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was charming, comfortable, and very clean. Very relaxing stay. Perfect place to launch your visits to all the chateaux of the Loire.
Beautiful grounds and large comfortable room. Beautiful linen and furnishings. Great location and short walk into the center of the village and the chateau. Heard a dripping sound all night from the pipes or something in the walls?
A great hotel in a good location
did not receive an air conditioned room as was expected and paid for.
Location The over priced menu
Excellent accomodations, very clean and very attentive staff no
The location and the room The Internet didn't work in my room
The quiet + coziness.
Close to centre of Blois
This is a cheap and cheerful hotel suitable for heavy sleepers that do not mind paper thin walls. The showers are suitable for a female size zero - but plenty of hot water
friendly staff room smelt musty
The owners are extremely friendly and helpful.
Relatively well located, not far from the center of Blois. The hotel was okay, even though the surroundings were not particulairly romantic. Supertiny bathroom (a plastic cube put in the room), the bed was not very comfortable. The elderly Monsieur at the reception at night was not very sympa. All in all, considering other deals in Blois and other hotels we stayed in while travelling in France, I regretted having booked that one.
excellent position, close to station and chateau in Blois. Helpful staff, good breakfast.
Lovely people, excellent breakfast. Central location. Would come again. Small room, very small bathroom-shower. Would be difficult to stay here for many days, due to small room and limited storage space, but for short stays it is an excellent value.
it was in the loire valley close to the chateaus and had a family room that slept four at a good price. the landlady's english was better than my french and we made do.
The location was great with easy access to the Metro & train stations & there were some wonderful pattisseries close by.
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.
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.
well appointed rooms restaurant v. 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.
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 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.
Size of room No outward views
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.
the location and the views from our room the restaurant was very expensive
Leaving the hotel Blood stained sheet, poo on the bathroom wall, mould thick in the bathroom, rudeness of staff, location was misleading
Helpful staff, close to mororway and good directions on the hotel web site!
Just used it for sleeping. The hotel was fine. Staff was very friendly
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
Very relaxing location, in the heart of the Loire valley Internet does not work in the room because of the trees!!!
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.
It's a long way out of the town of Amboise, so you need a car which I didn't have.
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
Love the location - smack dab in the center of town, right below Amboise Chateau, and within a few steps of restaurants and shops...all the conveniences and allure about this place! Parking was a little tough - lucky to find street parking! The lobby decor was a little outdated/eclectic.
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.
Very quite, cleanness, beautiful nature Would be nice if there was a bathtub
The ambience was excellent. The evening meal was absolutely delicious and the service was pleasant and effecient.Keep the chef! No.
The restaurant was perfect! And delicious! Compared to the restaruant the hotel room was ordinary.
nice hotel,very nice spacious room,poor common rest areas,staff less than friendly,parking excellent,location alittle remote,did not have dinner there because of staff and language diffficulties staff attitude
Very quite and peacefull stay. Would use this hotel again. No Complaints.
Our suite was very comfortable and spacious and the hotel deserves its inclusion in the 'Relais de Silence' brochure. Whilst the restaurant is certainly smart and the food undoubtedly well-cooked and presented, the choice is from 3 fixed price menus, all dominated by fish. The only meat choices were quail and sweetbreads, which are not to everyone's taste.
very good location ,exelent food ,clean and good service no
Excellent location with easy access to local attractions. Our room was spacious, spotless and, at Euro 105/night, most reasonably priced. The food, service and ambiance in the restaurant were all first class. The village setting was charming and much enjoyed by ourselves and our dog. In sum, a great small country hotel in every respect. Nothing at all!
Clean, comfortable with excellent food. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Good size comfortable room.Pleasant location. mold on shower tiles
The staff were friendly and helpful and the chateau was beautiful
Everything. Truly outstanding and memorable. Oustanding food, charming staff. Just perfect
The dining experience at the Chateau Seemed to be a lack of staff attentiveness since our last stay at the chateau 3 years ago.
Our visit was for just one night. But the hotel was quite and in a perfect country side location N/A
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.
Too expensive for what was on offer.
The course dinner is excellent with decent service. The room is rather small.
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.
Ambiente Old equipment
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.
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
location ,style hotel should have dinner
Fabulous location, great views, wonderful staff
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.
our room and view were wonderful, so was the location the front desk attendant was a bit stuffy...but eventually warmed up.
clean room with plenty of room and strong , consistent internet access
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Location Only 2 power points in the room
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.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Great location. No-parking space.There wasn´t a lift although it wasn´t a problem for us
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.
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.
central position and helpful staff pretty basic!
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.
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.
Good size room and kept very clean. Good choice at breakfast and easy walking distance from centre. Rather gloomy and very long corridor to rooms! Building from outside very stark and on "business" road.
good,clean accommodation.staff very helpful.excellant parking.fairly easy access to town etc.
The rooms were newly decorated. The rooms were so recently done that there was a very strong smell of paint. but we got a new room no problem.
The room and bathroom was very clean and modern. The air conditioning system was unable to adequately cool the room.
I liked the cleanliness of my room and the friendliness of the hotel staff. I did not like the shower head. The water came out too weak, which took too long to finish a shower, and not a friendly user in adjusting the water temperature.
Rooms are clean and comfortable but location is not great if you expect to be centrally located (10 minute walk to downtown - many stairs) I was very unhappy at the check-out. We did the check-out at 6:00am and they had charged us for the breakfast that only opened at 6:30. This was done automatically, which I think is unacceptable. The answer from the clerk was that guess must advised that they are leaving early. I did not think it was obligatory to eat breakfast and guess should not be charged automatically. In addition, we had advised the front desk. I thought that was a poor response. In addition, he was not able to credit us right away as he did not know how. We were in a hurry as we needed to get to the airport so we will need to see our credit bill to see if we received the credit.
Very nice. Room is big compared to hotel room in Paris. I like it a lot. Will return to stay in this hotel if I ever come back to Blois.
The hotel room was very comfortable and the desk staff was very helpful. The breakfast was exceptionally good. Nothing.
Limited parking space.No internet point in the hotel.Maid storemed in our room at 9am on Sunday
the confort of the room, the parking facilities and the bathroom, very nice and clean. very good for the price.
The welcome, the staff, the tranquility so close to the heart of the town, the elegance of the building
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Very helpful people - I arrived very late due to flight delays and instructions were very provided for me very clearly.
Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were second to none.
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.
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.
