Very helpful staff. Cozy. Beds not so comfy.
perfect and comfortable room. within walking distance to city center. free parking just in front of the hotel.
Very warm welcome from the owner who took the time to tell us about the city as it was our first visit. Very good breakfast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is a short distance from the town centre.
The welcome was very friendly and the location was perfect. We also loved their dog, Timmy - who was not by the way, allowed in the hotel itself. Parking was advertised as "On site", this is not correct - the only parking was in the road.
Hospitality of the staff Bad work of the shower
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
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.
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.
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.
Exquisite room in a private house, private gardens, owner extremely helpful, great breakfast
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.
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.
Our host was most gracious and helpful. Our room was well appointed and fresh. The advertised air conditioning still needs to be installed.
Everything was very nice and comfortable; we received excellent service. N/A
We enjoyed everything
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.
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.
Great setting and quality of the finish of the newly renovated chateau
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.
stayed in the larger room. new, clean. good value and worth the few dollars more for the bigger room. good breakfast. internet available.
The hotel is perfectly situated between the cathedral and the old town of Tours. It has recently be renovated and satisfies all the needs of a 3* hotel, it is really worthed more stars. The perfect place to stay and staff was very helpfull.
The rooms where spacious, modern and immaculate. A short walk to a huge host of restaurants and attractions.
It was located within easy reach of the old city but close enough to the modern are that walking into each area was quick
The managers were very friendly and the room exceeded our expectations
This is a very nice small hotel (although it cost the same as the Grand Hotel Poitiers which is in a different class). The man on reception was very helpful although he spoke rather rapidly which made directions rather hard to follow. Tour has an 'interesting' one way system which could cause the driver and map reader to become somewhat stressed.
The location, the room and first of all the kindness of the managers everything was very good
The hotel is within walking distance of the train station, a huge plus! On your way you pass the Tourist Bureau for Tours, France, so you can get info before you even get to the hotel. Lovely staff; who were very helpful in booking a first-rate truly fabulous well-known local restaurant for dinner (La Ruche, which means The Beehive). Breakfast was very nice; I recommend that future guests do have the 7.5 euro breakfast. it was really great, no complaints at all.
Great location, great decor and lovely bed. Better than pretty well every 2 star hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip. Should definitely be more than one star. ... no lift, but no big deal.
It was very clean, well designed, comfortable and the staff were very welcoming. We were surprised to see it has just one star, but the fact it has no lift may account for that.
The access to WI-FI is only at the reception but not at the rooms. The noise from TGV is "something"...
Tours! Great Location, Breakfast pretty good value and decent offering, Once you accept the basics the room and the amenities facilities etc. are fair. Housekeeping in Tours was good and efficient. Parking was good too and the Five Euros spent for the basement was well spent. On arrival we found that one of our rooms was not booked even though I had received the conformation e mail just that day. The young lady in reception could not find the third room booking, but she was very helpful. a room was given for the night at Mercure whose receptionist was seriously in need of some friendly training. She was grumpy and rude and we think she just had a bad day for which our friends were the victims a Receptionist later in the day Some telephone system on each floor even since it is not possible in rooms. In case you have an emergency there is nothing in your hotel after the receptionist leaves, no telephone no connection no nothing. windows! It was seriously hot int he rooms and we could do nothing to open the window which only opened two inches or so. I know that the railway tracks make lots of noise which is why you must have two double glazed windows, but if only this can be opened a bit to get in more ventilation.
Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff
Close to the station Unkind staff
Best price offered ever matching perfectly for all backpackers! Not actually, but, we expect if the hotel'd provide guests more facilities as well as something's like the bathroom stuffs, that would be better!
Clean, always good to be able to say that, comfortable, good value for money, convenient location for town centre, helpful staff.
No facility for storing soap & shampoo in the shower. Toilet seat wrong size therefore constantly moved around.
Clean, good location, wifi only in lobby and it closed early evening
The location, comfort (clean and ventilated as we asked) and price. Nothing.
Beautiful Hotel, close to the city center, Friendly staff, loved the coffee machine they had really good coffee and it was a great price.
Excellent location within walking distance to old town, shopping, rue colbert (restaurants).
The location is excellent, parking at 7 Eur/day is nerby
Position in Tours excellent, Very helpful staff, Very clean and well presented throughout.
Hotel Moderne is a conveniently located, budget hotel in the center of Tours close to the railroad station, the tourist office, and many different restaurants. It is an older hotel with a certain charm. There is good cable TV with French and international channels. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are small, but adequate. Bathroom facilities are somewhat cramped, but the shower space was adequate, and the water pressure good. There is no elevator in the hotel. The WI-FI was not used.
The friendly atmosphere and location for transport and sightseeing.It is also quiet throughout the night.
Friendly staff. The hotel has a cat. Cosy feel. Lacks an elevator, bad idea if you're travelling with lots of luggage. The water heaters are turned off at night, forget about showers before sleeping. Not enough electric outlets. Bad internet connection which frequently disconnects. No "do not disturb" signs. On the last day, I was forced to check-out at 8 am in the morning for some reason.
The location was ideal. The staff were friendly and the price was right. Tours is a lovely city for walking and the hotel was in a perfect location for "new town" shopping and "old town" dining. Parking was convenient and easy. Breakfast offering could have had at least one protien choice such as yogurt.
Its location very close to the center of the old city Air conditioner did not work well. In summer it is O.K. but in winter I am afraid.....
I liked the beautifull interior of the breakfast room. It was terribly noisy at night outside of the hotel. We couldn't sleep at all!
I found it very comfortable and welcoming. Beautifully appointed room and the hotel felt very 'French' to me. I have already recommended it to friends in Bordeaux! Thank you!
it's the best two-star hotel I have stayed in in France
Location, location, location no
Good location and stylish decor. Rooms and corridoors noisy.You can hear other people using toilet/shower. Impersonal, small and poky.
Central, very convenient, nice atmosphere. Side street room noisy at night
Ideally located. The manager who moved us to rear of hotel after complaining about noise in front room. The situation of the front room initially given to us. We had to be moved to rear of hotel because of noise from bar/cafe strip below hotel which made it impossible to sleep
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
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
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 staff had made a lot of effort to allow us access to the hotel even though we arrived long after the reception closed On the other hand at the price we paid we expected a hotel that had 24 hour reception and at least a kettle in the room. This was a very overpriced budget hotel and although the staff were helpful we were very disappointed with the standard of accomodation which did not reflect the price charged
It was in a good position from the town, the staff were very helpful, the breakfast were good.We stayed twice at the hotel.
The room was basic, but very clean, comfortable, and had a great balcony. It was also very quiet. It was in a good location, within walking distance of the train station and fun areas of the town. We did not realize that it is actually closed from 12:30 pm-5:00 pm so there was no way to drop off our luggage.
Central location, on-site private garage parking, very helpful and friendly staff, modern and clean room. Not much room in the bathroom.
The staff were very friendly.
Clean. Friendly staff. Great breakfast. Central location. No
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 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.
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.
Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were second to none.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The breakfast was delicious with lots of options and friendly service.
The staff were very approachable, friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very good as well.The location was excellent for finding it coming in from the motorway.
very good location, very clean. Good value for money. Nothing
l The only downside of this hotel is the parking, which is a tight squeeze. Street parking can difficult at certain times of the day.
Perfect location, lovely helpful staff, comfortable room for one or two night stay, good breakfast, the best kind of really French small hotel. You need to be a confident driver to park your car!
Great breakfast, comfortable bed, safety Very hard to find
The hotel is quite small and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The Patron even speaks English! Breakfast is excellent. We had no problems at all despite the external refurbishment work. We would stay there again soon but they are solidly booked for the coming month.
Stayed one night and can fully recommend. The room was very quiet and tidy, bathroom (and the room itself) was spacious compared to any other 2 star hotel I've stayed in, and the reception was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent.
Good hotel, very central. Comfortable beds and excellent breakfast, albeit rather pricey. Bathroom has only hand held shower and very narrow tub. Parking extremely difficult.
Yes, the floorboards from the rooms above us made incredible noise - no good when trying to get to sleep, no hot water one morning, staff could only say this isn't normal and didn't attempt to fix. Kettles not provided but limited amount available to borrow. Lastly parking limited and very squashed.
The room was incredibly hot but looked ok. It was only when I went to get into bed that I saw that the sheets had not been changed from the previous user, leaving me with crinkled sheets, and worse, body hair. At 11 at night there are no staff on site, so I had the worst night's sleep ever, on top of the bed. Still waiting for a refund.
good breakfast, cumfy rooms,
We had 2 rooms as travelling with 2 teenage offspring. I x double which was clean and comfortable - no problems. SEE BELOW The other unfortunately did not match expectations. Under impression we were booking 2 singles from website info but when arrived seemed to be double with bunk over the top which was not appropriate for needs of two semi-adult siblings. This certainly was not clean like the other room and smelt heavily of smoking/BO and also suspect stains on the walls.
convenience to airport and town
convenient room smelt badly of cigarette smoke
It was a good choice for an overnight stay not really
The staff were friendly and the breakfast was fine The room was too small for a family. The layout was awful and there was hardly room to swing a cat. Truly a budget experience.
Good rooms, good beds, good staff.
ease of use
room warm and plenty of hot water non smoking room,but bed top sheet smelt of smoke. room not sound proofed could hear people in the rooms above and both sides
Flexibility to change the room and arrange 2 rooms close each other Missing city map available in the reception
Very friendly, helpful receptionist/waiter. He gave us excellent attention and service. Good restaurant, varied and delicious menu The bathrooms in both rooms stank on arrival
Excellent location - close to the city center and the railway. Very comfortable room. Excellent value for money Internet services way too expensive for nowadays (when such services should already be like TV or radio).
great central location, very clean rooms and bathrooms, good size! overall very pleasant. the water pressure kept alternating in the shower.
Excellent location, right near the main railway station, and a very modern, comfortable room. The breakfast was over-priced and we only ate there once.
The chef special evening meal was excellent value, and tasted good as well. The staff in the resturant were also very friendly and attentive.
The location is great, right by Hotel the Ville Room was a little too small, though comfortable
Location - more or less in City centre nothing
The hotel has a great location! Very close to tgv station, and to the center of the city. The bedroom is big and confortable. The bathroom is very clean. Love it! The staff was not very helpful with our difficult to park our car ( $e 10/day), and it was hard to comunicate in english.
Location is good and easy to find. Compared to big city's hotel is cheap. Both the night shift and morning shift staff are not really nice and friendly, that is Dec 22nd night and Dec 23th morning. Room is not really designed for 3 people stay, they just added an small bed at the conrner.
It's situated just in front of the train station.
Situation, kitchen, parking, price for three person not a major building
Had a kitchen area that was nicely equipped. Bed was comfortable.
We had a studio apartment and it was great. Excellent to have a fridge and a few utensils. Staff are excellent and the whole experience was wonderful. Benoit did a great job of the food so make sure to try out their new restaurant, L'Alliance in Amboise. Bed was lumpy and the pillows were really bad - flat as a pancake! Despite that it really is a wonderful hotel in a great location and would stay there again!
Our studio looked like it was newly built, and was very nicely renovated with tasteful furnishings. It was very close to the main attractions in the town. There was nothing we didn't like.
Excellent welcome from helpful owner. Lovely location and facilities. Difficult to find
Rooms are in fact small apartments, allowing you enjoy more freely of your vacations. Location is quite good, at walking distance from the centre.
Had an excellent stay; friendly staff; excellent breakfast No canal plus
I felt the whole experience was positive and the staff pleasantly unobstrusive . Dearth of english language tv.
the staff were very helpful in all respects. a bigger business centre and a gym would have been nice!
The central location of the hotel
Free upgrade to a superior room (very large and spacious!)! We assumed that since we booked through Booking.com that we would get one of the few rooms that have not been re-done - but when we checked in, the courteous staff informed us that we had been upgraded to a superior room - which turned out to be the largest room in the hotel - quite nice! For 77,20 euros, we stayed in an excellent room, with a booking that included the 12 euros per person breakfast - excellent! Slight difficulty parking...the hotel is in the same square as the train station, and being a busy city, the parking for the station was full. We ended up parking in another structure about a 8 minute walk from the hotel - same price as advertised though (8 euros for 24 hours).
Nice hotel, convienient location city centre parking, TGV station, good food, nice staff - Internet WiFi did not work, (we were working, so important) otherwise excelent The WiFi, should have worked - they could fix that. Otherwise it was the best.
Very central location, being only meters from the train station. No
The wifi connection was very poor for the price paid
The location and friendly, helpful nature of the staff. Not a thing.
Hotel staff extremely helpfull and friendly Disturbance of guests going in and out of room next door
Our limited french, the staff were very helpful in trying to speak english. No hairdriers.
Very confortable bed and clean room. Big bathroom. Hot water all the time. A big super market, a restaurant and gas station in the nearby. Wireless internet in the rooms. No nasty smells. Good value for money. No air conditionig if I remember correctly, but was no need because of nice weather. The window was not open completely beacause of tv, but sufficient. No hair drier.
Just stopping overnight on a journey south. Good location for what is a fairly basic hotel. But it was totally adequate, other than a lack of secure parking.
nothing rooms smells cigarrete, shower place don't fit any human being.
Very friendly stuff. Close to the airport (15 min walking). Close to huge shopping centre. Buffalo Grill just few step from the hotel. Clean. Perfect price. Local bus stop is close to the hotel. Hotel is far from the city center. Only can be used for airport over night stay or shopping in the huge shopping area arround. but, remember, on sundays any of shoppings in France is closed. So, this area arround of the hotel is scary empty on sundays - you'll need to go to the center of Tours to have any of activity (it's not so bad, because local buses do the right job)
There was nothing that overall impressed me I was not happy with my stay at all. I was not happy with the staff and also the facilities. The room smelt and the hotel was very tacky. I also had to pay more than I was quoted online.
Efficency at arrival & information of nearby eateries Breakfast expensive for what was provided
Good value Small but value related
Reception Staff Poor Would not allow us to eat in the Restaraunt even though it was not full
Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Great location. No-parking space.There wasn´t a lift although it wasn´t a problem for us
visiting Chenonceau chateau parking was not easy
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.
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.
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.
Location 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.
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.
