“Outstanding Visit, A Room With a View”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Wife and I spent one all too brief night at this lovely hotel just before Christmas. Alexandre welcomed us to the hotel, and kindly made dinner and sightseeing suggestions, both of which proved to be very helpful.

Our room was perfect, small, but not more cozy than inconvenient. The bathroom was great, and the a hot bath in our oversized tub offered a lovely respite from our travels.

The location is wonderful, a 3-5 minute walk from the main shopping street, and our room offered an enchanting view of the Amboise Chateau and the Loire River. As an added bonus, the hotel offers enclosed parking, which is particularly convenient if you're touring the Loire by car.

We'd recommend this hotel to anyone who's looking for a couple nights of peace and quiet in a lovely town conveniently accessible to several Chateaus.

My mum and I stayed for two nights during our 10 day trip and it was well worth it: wish we could of stayed longer. We had a lovely top floor room overlooking the river. We read reviews that complained about the beams in the bathroom - it was one of our highlights! The service was exceptional from assisting our arrival, a glass of wine in the late afternoon after a busy day and a cup of tea late at night before bed. The room was quaint and the common area was wonderful. We could have spent a week especially with our view of the river. The new we were paying more than other hotels in the valley and it was worth it.

Room Tip: Their website shows each of the rooms, a great feature to select the room you want.

This review is long overdue. I stayed with my husband and mother-in-law in September. We shared a deluxe manor room which provided more than enough space for the three of us as the bed slept two and the sleeper sofa comfortably accommodated the third adult. I can’t add anything that hasn’t already been mentioned; service was excellent, parking was convenient, the setting was beautiful, etc. What I enjoyed most about staying at Manoir les Minimes is its proximity to many nearby attractions. It is an ideal place to stay if you’re interested in exploring the East Loire Valley. The décor and ambiance of the hotel really add something special to the overall experience. The only thing missing is a restaurant/bar however there are plenty of places within walking distance that offer good food & drink. Also, I’m not sure if it just happened to be a coincidence but we seemed to be significantly younger than other guests (and we’re not super young - mid 30’s). Since my goal was to relax, I didn’t mind but if you’re looking for something a bit more lively, this may not be the place for you. Overall, I found the hotel to be the perfect place to take in scenery and enjoy the little time I had in the Loire Valley. I would definitely stay again – the hotel was one of the highlights of my trip.

When visiting the Loire Valley, Amboise is a charming town to use as a base. The shops, boutiques and restaurants meander at the foot of the chateau--it is majestic at night with all the lights. The Manoir is just steps from all the center and very tranquil. The service is impeccable and the owners take pride in the hotel. I have visited several times and have noted a difference in the room standards. Some are quite cramped and in need of a refreshing while others are spacious with beautiful views. Be sure to ask for a larger room. Naturally it will cost more but it will be worth it especially for stays of more than one night. Breakfast was elegantly presented but was a bit lackluster in its offerings.

We visited the town of Amboise France last September. My husband and I had a lovely yet short stay here at the beautiful Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes. From the dining area you look out the window to a magnificent view of the Chateau de Amboise. We'd love to someday return and bring friends with us. The location can't be beat as it's walking distance to all of the little shops. It's on the same side of the river with all of the local interests.

Room Tip: Each room seemed quiet with thick walls. The second floor was neat to see the original wooden beams...

Clients of LoireValleyWineTour.com come to us from many fine hotels in the region but we have business relationship with any of them. We have picked up a number of clients from here at the start of their tour, staying for one or more nights.
Americans in the main, they tell us they appreciate the elegant surroundings and attention to detail of the staff in this establishment.
Tucked just under the walls of the Royal Castle of Amboise and with the river Loire just outside, the hotel is in an enviable position very close to the town centre.

We were very impressed by the beautiful chateau at Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes and the interior and warm welcome met our initial expectations having arrived at the gorgeous property. We stayed for 3 nights while we toured Chateau's around the Loire Valley. This hotel was in a convenient location in the heart of the pretty village of Amboise with good quality restaurants in walking distance.

The service at the hotel was exceptional, with a beautiful breakfast, extremely clean room and friendly helpful staff. There are also small touches we appreciated such as lovely bathroom products and a little weather card each night on your bed.

We stayed in the attic room and found this perfectly fine with lovely views and beautiful beams.

There is nothing about our stay that disappointed us and I would certainly recommend. While we were a couple there was also a family with a young baby and it seemed to cater for their needs too.

Definitely recommend staying here.
