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.

This charming property has only 8 rooms. It is very comfortable with a nice breakfast. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. It's location right in Amboise makes it a great base for traveling around the Loire, and for getting about the small town on foot. Close to the castle, restaurants, shops, river -- everything! Would definitely stay here again.

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.
