Just returned from Chateau de Pray, a wonderful experience in the Loire Valley. Located 1 mile driving from the quintessential French town of Amboise- on beautifully manicured grounds, this little slice of paradise was top notch! Offered elegant and comfortable accommodations, gorgeous views of the Loire Valley and excellent personalized service. Not to mention, the Chateau dates back to the... More

The room was nice, spacious, the view was beautiful, the lawns expansive. However it is cut off from Amboise town where the Chateau is and one has to take a taxi . The Hotel itself in a small chateau is very pleasant . We reached in the early evening after visiting Amboise itself only to be told that there was... More

Umm........... not sure how to write this............. sounded great and booked via C&HC, rather dopey staff on arrival and no bag carriers, rooms in old chapel and in stables. Rooms were beautiful but we have seen more beautiful ones. Dinner very expensive and so we went out to Amboise and would recommend the Pizza restaurant. Nice pool but rather difficult... More

Beautiful chateau. Excellent service! Staff very welcoming. Very isolated though, so this vacation experience would be better for couples, more so than for family. Beautiful landscape and wonderfully serene and peaceful.

While the chateau is gorgeous, there's an air of formality there so you can't exactly relax and explore the place freely. Apparently the rules say you can't eat in your room or you would pay for the furnitures (don't worry - we didn't eat anything there). The garden was hard to get into. We stayed in a room right next... More

We had 2 GPS systems and both of them had trouble finding this lovely property but a quick call sorted us out. We loved this property for many reasons: the food, the location, the service and the pool. The breakfasts were wonderful and the dinner was just superb. Getting a reservation is a problem but we would dine there again... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in this beautiful Chateau in Amboise in mid May. The service was excellent and the building and gardens delightful. If you can make a reservation in their restaurant do so as it is a not to be missed experience.We could not recommend this hotel more highly.

Just ate at the restaurant. Food sublime, atmosphere the right mix of quality and service without being over the top. Langoustine main course achived perfect balance of adding complementary flavours without overwhelming the langoustine.

Hello, I recently stayed with you and a couple of my clients. The scenery was fantastic, the food was very good, and our rooms were incredible. My room was a perfect mix of old style charm, and modern comforts. I have only one critique. My clients being affluent Americans, they were accustomed to slightly more present and available wait staff.... More

We stayed at Chateau de Pray for 2 nights. It was too expensive for what they offer. We stayed outside the hotel, in the room Pavillon (4 people). It is not really a Chateau experience.
