“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My daughter an I spent two nights in the cottage of this property last week after spending three nights in Paris. After being in the cramped space of a 4-star Paris hotel, it was wonderful to spread out a bit in this much more spacious room at 1/2 the price. The hotel was charming, clean, and offered a lovely view of the Amboise chateau. It was an easy walk to the town square with its many restaurants, if a bit intimidating after dark to walk back along the walls of the chateau. The office staff (who spoke English) was accommodating with our special requests. One caveat - after dinner one evening we wanted to have a drink (the parlor is stocked with liquors), but there was nobody there to help us (even at the front desk), and the prices were exorbitant, so we passed. Also, breakfast was rather expensive for a continental buffet. Overall, though, we were very pleased and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: No view from the cottage rooms, but since one can use the ground floor of the manor, it really isn...

Friendly helpful staff, peaceful setting yet near the centre with secure parking. The breakfast is elegantly presented, and going out to a different place for dinner is an experience helped by the recommendations from staff.

Room Tip: Go on spoil yourself ask for room 14, very spacious suite but pricey.

We just spent a week in the Loire Valley and spent 3 nights at this beautiful property which is situated just below The Chateau at Amboise and is convenient walking distance from the quaint downtown. Rooms are large and well-appointed and the grounds immaculate. Our only beefs were minor but nonetheless consequential to our overall enjoyment. Specifically we were not in the main building but rather were in the cottages, in room 40. Room 40 opens directly into the parking lot and as a consequence there is little privacy unless you want to spend all your time with the curtains drawn. The noise isolation from thunderous walkers in the room above is poor. There were some other minor difficulties with the shower and toilet seat but the management of this property is excellent and efforts were promptly made to address them.

Room Tip: Be in main building or upstairs in the cottages

Sadly, we only had a one night stay at this wonderful hotel. It is perfectly situated on the banks of the Loire and virtually within the shadows of the walls of the Chateau.
Le Manoir les Minimes is beautifully decorated in a classical French style and extremely comfortable - everything is tasteful and elegant without being in any way pretentious. The staff were welcoming and very helpful.
Breakfasts were generous and equally stylish - all in all, a wonderful choice thatwe'd be happy to recommend with confidence. Just note that, if you are driving, the entrance is positioned right on the corner of the property and it can be quite tricky to navigate.

Room Tip: We treated ourselves to a small suite (No 14 ) which was large, beautifully decorated and included a...

My partner and I just returned from an incredible couple of days here. From the moment we arrived the incredibly attentive Minimes personnel do their best to make you feel special, treating each of us as if we owned the Manor.
The room is impeccably decorated, a classic old building renovated with with every attention to detail.
There are a few rules, one of them includes not being allowed to bring food into your room but the overall experience is amazing.

Room Tip: The location is amazing, try to get a room facing the castle with the large windows.
