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.
the location and the comfort
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.
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 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.
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.
Very clean appartments with good services No English channels on the tv
Note that there is no restaurants at the hotel.
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)
- 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.
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.
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
The room is well appointed. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is great.
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
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).
Excellent accomodations, very clean and very attentive staff no
The quiet + coziness.
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?
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.
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.
did not receive an air conditioned room as was expected and paid for.
A great hotel in a good location
Location The over priced menu
The location and the room The Internet didn't work in my room
Everything, and the food in their restaurant was magnificent Nothing
Very pleasant and clean hotel. Reception staff offered without prompting to store our bikes in their garage.
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 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 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
room good wasnt as close to centre but easy 20min walk
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.
Very comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, helpful staff, quiet location
pleasant staff too far out of town with no bar or restuarant facilities, just like a travel lodge. 25 minute walk into town
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
Views and proximity to Amboise. Helpful staff None
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.
Air conditioning in room - wifi in room - trolley for luggage
Nice clean modern hotel Cost of drinks very dear in comparison to Ireland
Very comfortable bed, excellent sofa bed for children, buffet breakfast, pool and mini golf. Location also very good - walking distance to Amboise centre
the room was nice.
The chlidren liked the pool, the rooms were clean and comfrotable
Very familiar. Very well equiped. Staff very friendly. Very good breakfeast.
The food and bar operations were poorly run with a very disappointing product
Beautiful setting no
Interesting decor, excellent restaurant and a forest adventure park next door with slides and high wires through the trees. Excellent location for visiting the Chateaux ofthe LoireValley
It was clean. Very strange place. More like a business hotel. Modern make over of a manor house, which ruins any character. Every room had been decorated as a different country. Our's was "Kenya" - and it was boiling hot - so hot couldn't sleep. Also there were bars on the windows and the fire doors were locked. I wouldn't recommend staying here.
Quaint and fine old French building. Staff helpful and facilities faily good. Restaurant reasonable price and good quality. Fairly central for visiting the Loire region. No elevator. Not much to do in Mosne where the hotel is situated. Rooms in the attic dark and hot - poor air conditioning.
The Hotel was lovely and the restaurant was excellent. The evening receptionist although very busy was charming and very helpful. Great location.
Good base for the region.
well appointed rooms restaurant v. expensive
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.
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.
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.
Size of room No outward views
the location and the views from our room the restaurant was very expensive
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.
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.
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.
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
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
It's a long way out of the town of Amboise, so you need a car which I didn't have.
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.
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
The staff were friendly and helpful and the chateau was beautiful
Everything. Truly outstanding and memorable. Oustanding food, charming staff. Just perfect
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.
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.
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.
The dining experience at the Chateau Seemed to be a lack of staff attentiveness since our last stay at the chateau 3 years ago.
Ambiente Old equipment
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.
Character of the hotel in this old castle. Buffet breakfast a bit expensive for array of choices.
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.
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
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.
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.
Fabulous location, great views, wonderful staff
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.
clean room with plenty of room and strong , consistent internet access
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.
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 loved Le Manoir St. Thomas and would definitely recommend it to friends. It was lovely, the staff was wonderful and the location was great.
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.
Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were second to none.
The welcome, the staff, the tranquility so close to the heart of the town, the elegance of the building
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.
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.
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 location of value for money of this hotel are unbeatable. The bathroom was a bit cold as there was no heater in the bathroom.
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!
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
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.
Location Only 2 power points in the room
Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Great location. No-parking space.There wasn´t a lift although it wasn´t a problem for us
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.
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.
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.
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
Exquisite room in a private house, private gardens, owner extremely helpful, great breakfast
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.
Very quite and peacefull stay. Would use this hotel again. No Complaints.
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!
Very quite, cleanness, beautiful nature Would be nice if there was a bathtub
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
The ambience was excellent. The evening meal was absolutely delicious and the service was pleasant and effecient.Keep the chef! No.
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.
Good size comfortable room.Pleasant location. mold on shower tiles
Clean, comfortable with excellent food. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
The restaurant was perfect! And delicious! Compared to the restaruant the hotel room was ordinary.
very good location ,exelent food ,clean and good service no
restrant was good .room also was very clean. and staffs were very frendly
staff very helpfull shower had no curtain but otherwise excellent
Very close to the castle of Chenanceaux
the quality of the reception and welcome. maybe breakfast can be included in the room rent
The hotel was conveniently situated fro visiting the Chateau of Chenonceau and easy to find. The room was clean and comfortable and ecerything worked ok. At checkin there seemed to be some confusion about the allocation of our room. This was not explained to us. The restaurant was closed so we had to go into Chenonceaux to eat. At checkout the credit card machine did not have a connection and the reception staff could not make it work. Consequently we had to pay in cash which left us short of euros for the remainder of our journey home. The account showed my initial and address incorrectly. The receptionist was unable to change this in the computer and eventually had to erase it manually and write in the correct details. Again, there was no explanation or apology for any of this or any recognition of the problem.
The hotel is convenient for Chenonceaux, being in the next village and it is easy to find. On checking in we were advised to make a reservation for dinner as the restaurant would be full. We were offered 8pm to 9pm and we said we would like 8.30. When we arrived for dinner (at 8.40, but well within the timeframe advised) we were told the service had finished at 8.30 and they would not provide us with a meal, meaning that we had to drive elsewhere to get a meal. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant so the line that we needed to book to get a table was not true.
Lovely situation, friendly efficient staff, restaurant served good value for money local food. Single beds were very narrow and so the overnight rest was not all it could have been.
dinner was very good While it was May, the first night was rather cold as there was not heat in our room (even though I tried to turn on the radiator).
clerk at front desk very nice; room O.K. no heat first night; only given hair dryer after asked if available; could hear man snoring in next room first night
