Old style luxury. Just a bit tired. Super location. Clean rooms. Very noisy air conditioning. We turned ours off and opened windows, but noise came from machines outside room. Nice pool area. Enjoyed a drink by the pool! Delicious breakfast, lots of choice. Friendly efficient staff. Call me old fashioned but shame cyclists are allowed into dining area fresh from... More

This hotel is located on the river, just a few blocks from the center of Amboise. It is well maintained. The rooms are spacious. The hotel staff are very helpful. The breakfast selection is extensive. The signature restaurant food is good, but not quite up to the billings (or the price). This hotel would have earned a five rating if... More

The hotel just in front of Loire river, and 10 to 15 mins to the centre on foot. Guest rooms are located in three different buildings, some rooms has been newly renovated but I was so unlucky to stay at a very dated room at 1st floor of the building at right hand side of the hotel entrance, approx 100m...

We decided to splurge a little and add to our experience of the Loire Valley and so we booked an independent tour that included 'luxury' accommodation and sightseeing. We arrived by train and found it impossible to get a taxi and so navigated our way on foot. The hotel is located a short stroll from the town centre and is... More

This hotel was in an absolutely amazing location with an incredible view of the Loire River. Just steps away from the center of town set against the backdrop of the Amboise Chateau, the hotel is a perfect addition to the skyline. Unfortunately, the room in which we stayed needed a serious update. The beds were more fatigued than me, and... More

On the first day of our car trip to Barcelona we booked this super hotel on the banks of the river. The weather was cold and wet so after a brief walk around town opted to eat in hotel. What an experience over looking Loire. Excellent food, including local delicacies, fine French wines and superb attentive service. The rooms were... More

Hotel seemed very tired in places and a little soulless. There didn't seem to be enough staff - we asked for a bottle of sparkling water it was brought (a while later) with 2 glasses, no ice no lemon, and it was a red hot day! In my opinion the hotel seems to be existing on the back of its... More

First room offered as spacious and airy but was small and located in attic. Overpriced . Dining lacked all atmosphere from staff although food good but not excellent . Not as good as 2 years ago . Service for afternoon tea very poor. Umbrellas for pool difficult to obtain and falling to pieces. Will not stay or eat again.

Le Choiseul has the character we'd hoped for in a Loire Valley location....we appreciated the individual furnishings and decoration of each room, and of the public areas which were decorated with antiques and comfortable seating. Our welcome was warm and friendly,service was first rate and extra special fuss and attention to our birthday lady who turned 80 while were there... More

We stayed here 4 nights while enjoying area chateaus and gardens. There was much to see and enjoy. The location of this hotel is just blocks away from the main activity; however, all was quiet here in the evening. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast was fabulous with plenty of strong coffee served with hot milk. How very civilized.... More
