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! Our kid is 2 yrs and 6 month... More

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. It... More

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

We are a couple in our 60s from USA and well traveled. Good hotel with "character." 4 stars but we feel French stars have a lot of variation and cannot be relied upon. Location: Excellent. It's a short walk into the center of Amboise. Value: Very good. We paid E110 for one of two "cottages" in October 2014 Ours was... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The hotel is very close to the town centre so it easy to walk to the Chateau and other local spots. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were travelling by car so needed good parking which the hotel has. However, on arrival my car... More

Good parking, great gardens, good location. Short walk into town and to the river. Very good recommendations! If you only have one day in this town and you are traveling by car this is the place for you. They even have larger apartments on the grounds if you ask for them. No elevator needed.

The hotel is very good and situated in the middle of Amboise. The breakfast room and lounge are really nice and breakfast excellent. The staff are very nice. Our main issue was we had a large room at first which was fine and we knew we had to switch to different room for last two nights. The second room number... More
