We stayed here for one night on the way to Spain, and loved it so much we booked on the way back as well. There were three of us and we stayed in a large room, with a double bed in one room and a single bed in the second room. There was plenty of space. The rooms were tastefully... More

I was really impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The hotel was nice and clean and everything worked. Can't recommend them enough, I've had some bad experiences in France and it's places like this that encourage you to keep coming back.

We stayed for two nights in this charming inn. Our bedroom on the first floor had beams on the ceiling, striking red wall coverings and a large comfortable bed. The inn also has its own private parking area. It has its own restaurant which offers a very good three course meal for 30 euros and has a decent wine list.... More

Stayed here one night on our bike trip through the Loire Valley. The owner and staff were so helpful and friendly. Room was very spacious and clean. It is right in the center of town, so you can walk to the castle, and all local restaurants, etc. Really enjoyed our time, and would have liked to stay another night to... More

We stayed in the hotel for one night while visiting the Loire Valley. The location of the hotel is perfect just 10 minutes of walking distance from the castle, right in the centre of the town (but it is a small one). There is a free parking nearby. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly (the best during our whole... More

Three night stay Owner and staff unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Very much offseason. The restaurant has a very restricted choice but what was there was good. Ate out one night in a restaurant willingly recommended by the owner and were not disappointed.

Nice hotel in the centre of Azay. Beautiful buildings (exposed wooden beams in the room!), free parking, nice breakfast, welcoming and helpful hosts, good value on the package (night, 2 castle-entries and a glass of Vouvray).

A charming hotel in the center of Azay-le-Rideau. A wonderful spot to be the central point of our short trip to the Loire Valley. The staff and the owner are particularly helpful and pleasant. There is both public (free) and private (4 Euros/night) avilable.

We stayed in the Amboise, a triple room in the eaves of this old coaching Inn. We had a weekend stay which included breakfast and tickets for two local Chateaux. The weather was quite cold and after sightseeing it was lovely to get back to our cosy spacious room. The beds were comfortable and the pillows really first class. Everything... More
