Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes
Ranked #1 of 25 Hotels in Amboise
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

We spent 3 nights on our recent visit and had an amazing experience. This small hotel is truly stunning and the attention to detail fantastic. We stayed in one of the attic rooms and found it very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was beautiful with plenty to choose from. We enjoyed a bottle of wine and soaking up the late evening sunshine on the terrace. The service from the staff was wonderful with everyone being so helpful and friendly. For a really special experience I would highly recommend this hotel and all the positive reviews that you will see posted here are accurate.

Room Tip: I am sure all the rooms are wonderful

We enjoyed our stay here. Amboise is a beautiful town, just by the river and with the Chateau d'Amboise just outside the window. The accommodations were quite nice, with a full bathtub for soaking after a full day out, and a comfortable bed.

We had a very nice stay at the hotel, it's very well located just beside the Chateau de Amboise and a block from the little center of the town, with it's many nice restaurants. And it's in front of the Loire river.
Amboise is a great base city to explore the region, and the Manoir is in the middle of the route to most of the castles .
The hotel is beautiful and well decorated, the lobby, bar and library are decorated in classic style in a very good taste. It had a wow effect in me, hehe. The garden also creates an agreable feeling, you can seat at the tables in front of it and enjoy the beautiful view and the sun.
The bedroom was detached from the hotel, in what they call The Pavillion, room 40. It's large and beautifully decorated, in a provençal style. Huge confortable bed. Huuuuge bathroom, nice tub , everything perfectly clean.
Thierry Mugler's amenities: great plus.
In this room you could possibly have an privacy issue, since it's on groun floor and to enter the next room people pass in front of your big glass room's windows. We just kept the light fabric curtains close to allow both privacy and day light. Also the occupants of the upstairs rooms were a little noisy (wood floors, i guess).
The staff is very kind and caring, despite the fact that we mistook the checkout time they remained very polited.
We didn't have the chance to taste their breakfast, unfortunately, since we had a short stay.
We are looking foward to go back , and highly recomend it!

We looked for quite elegant type of hotel in the country side for 3 days vacation away from our busy and tense life routine. It was a real relaxing place with very pleasant staff, excellent breakfast - better than in the small Bigot shop nearby. We stayed at the cottage house. Surprisingly for France the room had air-condition.

We stayed 2 nights, July 8 th, 2013. Beautiful place! cannot had to what everybody said! we had the suite Prestige, since our teenage son was with us. If one thing had to be done and I believe it does, is to put AC in the living room. We would come back around 5pm and the room would be so stuffy, even with all the drapes! to relax a bit before dinner. Told our son to lay down on our bed if he was too hot, but having wifi was all he needed. Yes, the Thierry Mugler toiletries were nice! and what about the orchids! OMG! beautiful! had breakfast in dining room and it was very nice! fresh croissants and fresh bread is enough for us and again very nice service!
Beautiful place and best spot for Loire tour! we had dinner at Scala which was very good, but 1st night, service was slow; had to wait 40mn and then to waive at waiter to get drink!! and since I speak French, service went a bit smoother after that. Will write a review.

Merci Patrice.

Room Tip: our suite was on the street, so yes noise but the view is magnificent
