A former chateau turned hotel...what could be better? I'll tell you...a hotel that is right in downtown Ambois. This gem of a hotel is located perfectly for those without a car. Although it does have parking if you do have a car. Everything you need & want to see in Ambois is within walking distance...the patisseries, restaurants, shopping, castles, etc.... More

We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful small hotel with very friendly staff. We highly recommend it. We had the room with the terrace and there was a beautiful view of the backside of the Chateau of Amboise. Also, a nice view of the clock tower. It was a great place to enjoy a bottle of wine.

Gorgeous hotel. We stayed in the garden cottage and the room was excellent. Compared with other accommodation in France we thought it was great value. We paid €115 for a lovely, light and bright room. It's perfectly located and has parking. Staff were great too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

small hotel right in the centre of a lively little town. We'd booked the suite with terrace though sadly due to poor weather we weren't able to use it. Room was comfortable enough with separate living room. Few little niggles that I didn't expect; having to pay for water, no tea and coffee in the room. Paid a fair bit... More

Wonderful hotel situated in the heart of Amboise, we stayed for 3 nights with our two young daughters. Very comfortable rooms and excellent service. The hotel was walking distance to some great restaurants and cafés. We will be back again.

The Pavillon des Lys is in a super location, right in the centre of Amboise tucked away on a quiet street. Our room was immaculate, the bathroom well equipped and the welcome smiling and friendly. Nice touches include a very pretty salon where we enjoyed a glass of wine before walking out for dinner and a delightful dining room where... More

We spent 5 nights in this charming and boutique-like 4 star hotel and they were great. I think we were a but lucky because we went in low season and got upgraded to a bigger room, but even if the hotel is not full, that never happened to me before, great welcoming!

This hotel - it's really more of a B&B with a licence to sell alcohol - is in a great location. It's a block away from the main entry to the shops and restaurants and chateau, but it's in a beautiful estate so you get the feeling you are miles away from the town. The staff are very efficient.

Disappointed with our stay here. We had one of the rooms not attached to the hotel and it was very ordinary - cheap mismatched furniture and unattractive decor, tile floors, no fridge, strong musty odour, very tiny shower, wifi not working for most of our stay. Definitely not 4-star. The hotel itself is pretty and the breakfast room and lounge... More

If you are planning a trip to the picturesque and historic Loire Valley, base yourself in the storybook setting of Amboise and stay at the absolutely lovely Pavillon des Lys. What a treasure! Guilluame and his staff could not have been kinder or more helpful in helping us navigate our way throughout this beautiful region of France. Our room (23)... More
