I stayed here as part of a group. The rooms were fine and the place was clean. BUT the location is too far from town if you do not have a car. I found the staff disinterested and occasionally a bit rude. The breakfast was just about devoured by a group just ahead of us, and food was never fully... More

Stayed there 3 nights early June.Of course you need a car but the hotel is very quiet, the view to the castle is great (a bit far but nothing in the way). Very efficient staff. Internet was not very fast but good enough.

The hotel is located on a hill that overlooks the city of Amboise: the view is beautiful and the calm is royal ! This hotel is well run and maintained, at the high end of the Accor standard. Our rooms was spotless clean and bed comfortable. Food (dinner & breakfast) was very good and the view from the restaurant is... More

The room was quiet with a view. Traveling with a group, breakfast was disorganized. It is a 20 minute walk to town. Wifi was inconsistent. But it is a nice hotel. Ask for a room with a view. The beds are comfortable. Purchase excursion tickets at the front desk for a discount.

The Hotel was very clean, modern and spacious. It reminded us of a North American hotel. We had a lovely room with a very comfy bed. Unfortunately, the walls are very thin and due to the large number of rooms and reasonable prices the hotel attracts a lot of tour groups and families making it very busy and noisy, We... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night during our tour of northern France. The room was well kept. It only provided a single full bed, and a second bed in a pull-out couch. Not a problem for us, but if two people were sharing the room or had kids it might present a problem. The breakfast buffet was... More

If this hotel were nearer the city of Amboise, it would warrant its star rating. Services were good (although wi-fi was unreliable and difficulty to maintain) and the place was clean and pleasant. The breakfasts were better than average, but the hotel restaurant was a disaster for other meals (not the quality, but the management). It might be appropriate if... More

If you are not traveling by car, you will not find the location convenient for visiting Amboise or, in fact, eating any meal other than breakfast. No food is served in the bar, and the dining room did not open until 8:00 p.m. Bar service was minimal. The rooms were adequate.

Booking a Novotel on outskirts of town I was expecting plain and functional but this hotel was excellent . Great facilities with large outdoor pool with views over Amboise - could see mist riding off the Loire from the bright breakfast room that overlooks the pool. Rooms were good size, well equipped, zero noise. Staff all pleasant and helpful. Probably... More
