We have visited Amboise several times, but this was our first stay at Hotel le Manoir les Minimes. Our room was the Pavilion Classic, which is across the garden from the main hotel building--very private and quiet (except for occasional footsteps in the room above us). The room was a comfortable size, and the bathroom was very large. The air-conditioning was efficient, a big plus during a hot July week--and we especially liked that we could park right outside our room.
The hotel's location is great. It is a short walk (five minutes at most) from the castle and the shops and restaurants of Amboise. We enjoyed having our breakfast sitting outside a boulangerie in town each morning, so we didn't try the hotel breakfast. In fact, because our room was at a slight distance from the hotel desk, we actually had little contact with the staff during our stay. However, we did walk through the public rooms, which are nicely decorated and very appealing.
All in all, we were quite pleased and will definitely return here on our next trip to Amboise.
