It is a lovely quaint hotel with the best location in town and free parking! These are a must in Amboise.... However I agree with the other reviewers when it says it lacks the facilities of a boutique hotel.... Which is disappointing considering the prices. The breakfast is poor to put it politely... It could be a wonderful place to... More

Quaint villa (chateaux ?) outside the main building. Fenced off grounds with parking (we had a car rental so this was very nice). The staff was very friendly. We had the breakfast each morning and while somewhat expensive everything was fresh, excellent baguettes, pain au chocolat, fresh pomplemousse juice and a great , fast, convenient way to start our long...

A really central hotel with its own parking and a peaceful terrace for resting or eating. The room was large and felt sumptuous. Full of character. Not cheap but better value than others we've stayed at. Amboise absorbs its tourists well so recommended for a restful stay.

I was a bit disappointed in this place simply because of the incredible reviews and recommendations which built it up so much. It's a very sweet, 9 room converted house. The rooms and large and it's five minutes walk to the centre of Amboise. Beautiful building, but really lacking in the kind of facilities you'd expect of a hotel in... More

We stayed for 3 nights in July, when the weather was particularly hot ( for Amboise). We had the air conditioner going full time, to keep the room at a bearable temperature. Location is fabulous, right in the centre of the village, a short walk to everything! Our room was on the third level, tucked into the attic, and with... More

Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel or their staff. We stayed here for a few nights whilst on holiday in the Loire Valley, and wished that we could have stayed here longer. Lovely well equipped room (we had a stand alone room on the premises, rather than a room in the main building). Our room was well appointed and... More

Amboise is an ideal place to base yourself to visit all that the Loire and surrounding area has to offer and Le Pavillon de Lys is a peaceful setting to return each day after castle and chateau visiting. We stayed 4 nights in the duplex room 14 - a fantastic self contained unit with a huge bathroom and mezzanine lounge... More

This is a beautiful little hotel in a perfect location. If you have a car you can drive in through the gate to the entrance. Then the gentleman at the front desk will tell you where to park. It's nice to have secure parking. He was very helpful and welcoming. There is no elevator but the building is small so... More

This inn was just wonderful. It was located a stone's throw from the royal castle and right near several quaint restaurants and cafes (and yet quite peaceful and quiet around the inn itself). The service was warm and friendly. The room was large and comfortable, with all the amenities one could expect from a nice guesthouse or B&B. The courtyard... More

Our stay at Le Pavillon de Lys was outstanding. It was one of our favorite place on our honeymoon in France. The location is within a 2 minute walk to the castle. The shops and restaurants were great and all provided great locale food and products. The staff was very friendly and were very helpful.
