What a beautiful hotel this is. We stayed here for two nights in December 2012 and absolutely loved our huge suite. It had a very comfortable king size bed and then in a little alcove a lovely couch that made out into a double. Every evening when we returned from dinner this couch had been pulled out and made ready for sleeping which was one of the lovely little extra touches of which this hotel had many. The room was beautifully decorated in period furniture with plush decor and the bathroom was modern and spacious. We had a lovely view out over the courtyard with the river on one side and the lovely Amboise Chateau on the other, both of these were lit at night and made for a lovely view. The downstairs public areas were again beautifully presented. There was a main lounge with gorgeous antique furniture, even an old harp and off this was the breakfast room which was beautifully appointed and offered an excellent spread in the morning. There was also a library with more period furniture yet modern conveniences such as computer facilities. The offstreet secure parking was a bonus. What made this place stand out for me was the wonderful staff. Unfortunately I didn't get the name of the lovely night receptionist but he was such a friendly and helpful young man and made our stay thoroughly enjoyable. The hotel is a very short stroll from the main trading area of lovely Amboise in which you will find plenty of good restaurants and shopping opportunities. If you are looking for a lovely stay in an authentic old chateau without an exorbitant price tag then this is definitely the place for you.
