It's a terrific little boutique hotel/restaurant run by a nice husband-and-wife team. The entry thru the restaurant room was a bit confusing as we tried to find a separate entrance to the hotel in vain. But that's it. You have to inquire a waiter who would take you to the reception desk then. We have arrived at lunch time so they served us lunch first which we liked so much that we opted for breakfast next morning. And it was a fabulous breakfast with a great choice of cold cuts, pates, breads, fruits, and fresh pastry all home made as the owner is also a chef. The room was rather small but cute and cozy and quiet. There's no elevator though. Ample parking. It's located some 3 miles away from the town center. Perfect if you ravel by car.

A charming couple in charge, very clean confortable room with places to put down your bags and toilet bags which seem to be disapearing rapidly in standardised rooms. On top of that a very good dinner, all reasonably priced. A good stop on the Loire chateaux circuit.

Easy to find. Clean and comfortable. Enthusiastic receptionist who was very helpful. The rooms at the front share a terrace, and there is screening so that each room has its own private part of the terrace. The terrace overlooks a road and as there is no air conditioning, and it can be noisy when the windows are open. The food is very good, with an excellent choice, either a la carte or a choice of several menus.

We visited when cycling on the Loire a velo. We hadn’t realised that on Mondays the restaurant was closed but the hostess helped us find a restaurant in Amboise and made sure we got there too. Really nice and way beyond what she needed to do to help. Really nice.

The location is just done the street from downtown Amboise, the Chateau and very quiet, even though it's on the main road. Slept very well with the windows open, beds were comfortable. Room size was standard French size room, but this one had a balcony to go out onto, so it was like an extension of the room. Bathroom, as well as the bedroom, was very clean. Shower could be a bit of a challenge for tall people. The shower ceiling is sloped due to the pitch of the roof. For smaller people like myself and my father, 5' 5" it wasn't a major problem. Breakfast was a big spread and was your standard buffet with breads, fruit, cheese, meats, coffee, juices, etc. Property is unique and with a little landscaping could be incredible. Felt we got a good value and would stay here again.
