Cannot say enough about this beautiful hotel and wonderful, thoughtful staff. We stayed in the guest house and felt truly pampered. Incredible bathroom, very comfortable bed, spacious bedroom. The hotel has beautiful gardens and a wonderful patio, perfect for a glass of wine or cup of coffee. The location cannot be beat: it's literally at the foot of the Chateau, and only a 5 minute walk to the heart of town. The manager helped us find a great place to taste local wine, provisions for a delicious picnic at Chenonceaux, and a drug store when I needed something for a cold! I highly recommend this beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: The upstairs suite in the Guest House has a magnificent bathtub and is very private. We loved it, b...

My husband and i recently had the pleasure of staying at this incredible hotel for one night. We wish we could stay longer and will definately return. We had a lovely suite, tastefully furnished overlooking the Loire river. The size of the bathroom was extremely generous and the toiletries were good quality.
We were made feel extremely welcome and were very comfortable!! This would be a perfect base if you want to explore the Loire valley. We definately will return.

Great hotel. Spacious and comfortable bedroom, with a clean and nice bathroom. The front bedrooms have an excellent view of the river and Amboise castle. You can park your car inside the hotel and go to the castle walking. The village center is very near and there are great options of places to eat. The hotel breakfast was pretty good. Staff was atencious and polite.

Le Manoir les Minimes is a lovely hotel with great service.
We stayed in room 31, the classic manor room on the ground floor. Although in the main manor building, you can only enter the room from a separate outside entrance. The bedroom area was a bit small, but we knew that from the hotel website. However, there was a nice size entrance area where we could leave our suitcases and other bags, which avoided cluttering the bedroom. Also, the bathroom was quite large. Thus it resulted in a more comfortable and larger total area than we expected. I believe we paid about 175 US dollars a night, a bargain to stay in this classy 4 star property.

Room 11 was a beautiful room in this old manor house. The room is large with a pleasing mix of period furniture and modern conveniences. There is plenty of space and has a large, comfortable bed. The bathroom is also as big as some hotel rooms with plenty of quality amenities and a proper shower head over the bath. The toilet is in a separate room to the rest of the bathroom although it is quite squishy. The hotel does have a strict policy of no food or drink being brought from outside into the room. The view is absolutely stunning and exactly what is asked for of a superior establishment in the Loire valley. From the comfort of our room we could admire the Loire river and Chateau Amboise rising above us. Hotel staff are very friendly and courteous and happy to assist with planning an itinerary if you require it. The service is also very personal which may not suit some people such as the bed turn down service which they seek to undertake whilst you are out at dinner. Breakfast is a small but quality affair and although the room is quite charming the modern pop songs over the radio detracted from the ambience. The hotel has an excellent location just a short stroll from the centre of Amboise and restaurants and the chateau. An excellent way to spend your time in the Loire valley.

Room Tip: Aim for the Deluxe manor rooms as these offer stunning views

We booked two rooms on the 3rd floor for 2 nights, only sorry that we couldnt have stayed longer. It is a beautiful hotel and we felt most welcomed by the staff there. We enjoyed the Loire just accross the road from the hotel and it was just a short walk to the castle of Amboise and the little town. We sat out under the sun umbrellas sipping a lovely glass of wine and just soaking in the surroundings and the waiter arrived with some canapes which were delicious.
The rooms were spacious and reasonably luxurious, the bathrooms were well set out with nice products and plenty of plush towels etc. There were some great restaurants nearby which we enjoyed, all within walking distance as well. A great place to stay.

First, let me say the hotel is beautiful and well located. It is just a few blocks from a wonderful walking street with shops and many restaurants. We had room #20 on the attic level. We tried to get a better grade room, but they were full. The room was very small, maybe not a surprise for experienced European travelers, but this room had some other significant flaws. The bed was very close to the bathroom door, but between the 2 was an angled step down. Tricky to navigate, especially in a dark room at night. Also, the only shower was in the tub. Running through the tub area, near the shower head was a hewn wood beam, part of the architecture of the space. This made it difficult to stand and required the shower curtain to be cut into two parts...which made it hard to close.
