This hotel in a real castel is a wonderful retreat: Charming atmosphere, big swimming pool, nicely furnished rooms, great restaurant (worth a detour). The service is friendly, not over-friendly. The breakfast is OK, could be a little bit more sumptuous (regarding the standard of the hotel).

After a very long day of travel we were absolutely thrilled to pull up to Chateau de Pray. The main building and grounds are stunning and we were warmly welcomed when we walked in...as travel weary and disheveled as we were! The entire staff was lovely and friendly and spoke French to me, but English to my French-challenged family! We... More

We had been in Spain and southern France for nearly two weeks and had booked the romantic package with the idea that it would be one of the highlights of our trip. Oh dear! What a disappointment. The room was adequate but hardly romantic with a view over the car park. It lacked the touches that we would expect at... More

We were there the first week in June and it was as if we practically had the place to ourselves. Just wonderful--an absolute "find" and a good value. The service was first rate!!!! I would definitely stay there again. (The dinner we thought was just...good.)

I've never stayed at a chateau before and everything about this place was top end. Service from the reservations desk to the servers was impeccable with everyone doing their best to provide quality service. This isn't budget travel but it is high standard. Sheets were top notch , towels too. Bed was an antique wood carved beauty. Bathroom totally updated... More

We originally booked as the Chateau was able to give us 2 rooms at a good price for a couple of nights. We liked the room, staff, restaurant and location so much we stayed 4 days. It was like being at home with the antique chairs and desk in our room and garden views from the window. The staff were... More

The second stop on our family's trip to Europe - we found the staff friendly and helpful. Staying in this authentic Chateau was an excellent way to begin the main portion of our trip, we enjoyed having "the run of the place" and drinks in the beautiful back garden area was a daily highlight. The breakfast was the best breakfast... More

On this trip, we had just one night to spend in the Loire Valley. The charming Chateau de Pray came highly recommended and exceeded our expectations in every way. The first sight of this visually pleasing property is only the initial taste of an all-encompassing rich experience. Beautifully furnished and decorated, alive with history, magical gardens, fine cuisine ... from... More

Charming host, wonderful accommodations, lovely breakfast, beautiful grounds and a fabulous restaurant. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning. Our room was beautiful. We had cocktails on the terrace. Dinner in the restaurant, L'Orangerie, was fabulous. The whole stay was just perfect.

We had a lovely time at this chateau-turned-boutique hotel. With plenty of on-site parking, its easily accessed location, only a few kilometers from Amboise, was easy to find thanks to ample signage. The chateau offered everything I had hoped; beautiful antique furnishings, stained glass windows, friendly service, and of course cleanliness. We were greeted at the front door by Laur... More
