We were very fortunate to find two rooms at the Chateau de Pray on short notice over the Christmas holiday - a trip to introduce friends to the Loire Valley chateaux, Both rooms were lovely, well decorated, with beautiful modern bath rooms. The service was excellent. It was the quality and refinement of the dinner that most impressed us. We... More

We stayed in a family room for one night during a trip through the Loire Valley. It was wonderful, very entertaining for my kids to stay in a château. The people at the front desk were quite nice and welcoming. The restaurant was closed while we were there. It would have been nice to get better advice as to where... More

When booking our hotel in Amboise, this hotel was actually our second choice (no rooms available in our first choice). After staying here, I would definitely recommend it above any other hotel in Amboise. The exterior is a gorgeous castle, and the interior also does not disappoint. Our room was HUGE, beautifully renovated with lovely decor. There was a bit... More

We spent one night at Chateau de Pray and fully enjoyed it. The service was great and extremely friendly. We loved our superior room (to which we received a free upgrade!), as well as the common parts of the castle. Breakfast was perfect, high quality food and so much choice! Too bad we could not have dinner at the hotel... More

This hotel is very special, intimate and yet with great service. The history of the property makes it even more attractive. The restaurant is among the best in the area. Do yourself a favor and eat at least once there. I'm going back for sure.

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms. It was perfect. We had a window facing the back. It was like looking at a postcard with gardens and horses in the background. We sat on the terrace with our wine before dinner and was surprised by the wait staff delivering an assortment of appetizers to us without having to ask... More

It's a trap, the exterior of the castle looks beautiful. But once inside, you see that the whole isn't tastefully decorated. With courage we started the dinner. Unfortunately, the chefs of this restaurant wasn't what you expect. The starter was a jumble of flavor combinations and looked ugly. The following courses were slightly better but did not reach the level... More

If you feel the need to stay in a chateau in Amboise this place is OK so long as: (a) you do not need any help from the hotel staff; (b) you do not plan to eat in the restaurant; and (c) you are not American. We found the staff to be arrogant and unhelpful. We had a minor travel... More

A perfect place to stay while visiting the Loire Valley. Our room was in the chateau on the third floor, No elevator, so a bit of a problem with hauling luggage.Even though the building itself is old, the room was updated, clean, elegantly furnished and very comfortable. The bathroom is marble and modern. The staff is very accomodating. We enjoyed... More
