We came for dinner only. Staff were very friendly, but after 3 hours of slow service it wasn't as slick as it should be. The most disappointing was the duck which lacked flavour (served rare) and the leg meat served separately was dry. Bread was delicious and so were the cheeses

Truly enjoyable and excellent location. Near everything in the Loire valley. Did not partake of dining options. They were too expensive, but the restaurant was packed every night we were there. Thank you to the day shift receptionist. She was very nice.

We had a wonderful stay at the Chateau this past week for two nights. We stayed in Room 12 which was a fabulous room in the old castle right in the tower. I felt like Rapunzel! It is a very small hotel and is quite quaint, but the workers at the hotel are really helpful, polite,

Hi, Is the restaurant in the chateau open on December 21, 2018?
That certainly would be a question for the chateau!

Hi, we are looking to reserve this hotel for August. Do you think securing room with AC is important or is the entire place relatively cool? Thanks.
Not that important in August in this place in France. Nights might even be sometimes too cool.

Is it possible to arrange daily car/driver tours of the Loire valley from/through the hotel? Is there a way to get to and from the hotel and Bordeux without renting a car?
The hotel will be able to answer your questions, they are very approachable and knowledgeable. I am sure they can arrange a tour of the Loire Valley and will direct you to the nearest station for a train to Bordeaux.

Hi, If I take a taxi from the Amboise station to your hotel, roughly how much will it cost? Thanks.
Sorry but I have no idea. We used a rental car during our stay. Perhaps the hotel or the tourism office can answer.

how far is the chateau from the Amboise train station? Are there any shuttle buses into Amboise? Are there tours of the surrounding chateau's that pick up from this hotel? Many thanks
I don't know how far away the train station is from this hotel, It is about a 10 -15 minute or so drive to get to Amboise. There were no shuttle buses that I was aware of going to the hotel and I don't know if any tours pick up from there - I imagine you would have to call the tour company and arrange something with them.

"Beware there are newer rooms but they are NOT in the old chateau."
"Renaissance Pavilion Rooms are excellent if you are traveling with family!"
"Ask for a room on the first floor at the front of the hotel facing away from the river"
"All would be lovely. The rooms look over gardens in the rear of the building."
"Rooms in the chateau would be preferable to the ones in the smaller house."
