We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 8 & 3 years old girls) - booked the family/quadruple room with 1 queen size bed and a sofa bed for one night stay on our quick tour down the Loire Valley.
This hotel is a good base for driving around the Loire Valley, about in the middle of the famous chateaux Chenonceau, Villandry, Chambord etc. To drive to Chenonceaux is about 20 mins, to Chambord about 45 mins, to Tours about 55 mins. This hotel has a good view of the Amboise town as well - I'm attaching some photos for review. Since the hotel is further out, it is very quiet.
The room is spacious enough for us. One good thing about the sofa bed is during the day we converted it to a sofa and the kids have ample of space to play around in the room. The queen size bed & sofa bed are comfortable enough. The pillows are soft enough for a good night sleep. The carpet & furniture are clean and well maintained. Overall room condition is good and clean. Bathroom / toilet are clean and maintained well.
The buffet breakfast is very good - plenty of different selections of food. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurant as we went to Amboise town for our meals. It's good to have your own transportation, if not it'll be quite a long walk to get to Amboise town. Amboise is a charming little town - we enjoyed walking around viewing the nice buildings and chateau.
The hotel staff is very friendly and the key personnel speaks English fluently. We have no issue with communication.
They have a very nice swimming pool. There's also a mini-golf (put-put) course in the hotel compound. The kids definitely will love this.
We only spent 2 days in Loire Valley. We were thinking of going for a ballon tour, unfortunately the ballon operator wouldn't allow our 3 years old to go along. So, we will definitely come back in the future once she's reached the minimum age for the ballon ride...and, we will be staying here again. This hotel is a good value for money - we paid EUR170 for the family room which includes breakfast for everybody.
