Gloria and Bob are absolutely delightful! From the very first minute we arrived until we drove away, our visit was exceptional. Gloria graciously offered us a glass of wine when we arrived so she could visit with us about our plans while in Amboise. She made dinner reservations for us every night at wonderful places within walking distance. She was a wealth of information about the Loire Valley from local guides, which chateau to visit, and even the local wineries. Our room was perfect. You can tell that Gloria had a hand in every detail of the renovation because nothing was overlooked. The breakfast every morning in the conservatory overlooking the garden was wonderful! We would highly recommend Le Vieux. In fact, we can't wait to return.

After spending over two weeks in France (Normandy, Loire, Paris) the only negative people we encountered were Americans running this resort. Perhaps we should have known as we were told no talking after 10, no walking the grounds after 10, must clean up, no internet in cottages, trundle and twin beds in hot room with inefficient and LOUD a/c. Owners really could not have been nastier, hostile. Perhaps they simply need a different lifestyle. Too stressful. Moved down the street to Le Clos d'Amboise, where the staff could not have been nicer, with pool, LARGE breakfast and energy. Life is too short for stress!

When your group arrived with six people for a cottage that only holds four, we were certainly surprised and when you accused us of fraud and "switch and bait", because you had not reserved the cottage you wanted, we showed you your email reserving the gatehouse and our website that clearly shows the photos and names of the two cottages in the garden. Nothing would change your opinion and your mistake remained our fault..We still gave all your group free wine and tried to find accommodations for the two extra people...We were sold out and so was everyone else, so despite your insulting and rude behavior, we tried to help you in every way possible allowing the two extra people to sleep on the couch and an air mattress you had with you...We provided sheets, blankets, pillows, towels for them, all without a thank you or a kind word even though this was in violation of our insurance and business permit. We ask all our guests here to be thoughtful of others and noise in the garden is restricted after 10:00 as it is throughout France..We are in the center of town and for our guests and our neighbors, we ask thoughtfulness. For the thousands of guests who have stayed here, it's not been a problem, there are bars and restaurants opened late within a five minute walk. In the fourteen years we have offered our home to guests, we have only had a very few people who were not a pleasure to share our property with. I hope this always will be so and we can continue to give our very best welcome to courteous and thoughtful people from throughout the World.

This was my second time visiting Le Vieux Manoir and it didn't disappoint. Bob and Gloria were beyond the gracious hosts: Gloria had wine waiting for us as she talked with us of our travels - she had already made dinner reservations for us and it was a wonderful and delightful meal.
I assure you that this B&B will not disappoint I highly recommend it.

My wife and I recently stayed at this charming bed and breakfast, and were treated royally by Gloria and Bob, who also were extremely helpful in finding us a tour of the chateaux region on short notice. Le Vieux Manoir is a lovely, classic house that echoes the history of the region, and it is spotlessly clean and well maintained. Breakfast was a real treat, with fresh fruit and wonderful granola, complete with croissants and coffee.
We would highly recommend this establishment for anyone who wants a quiet, and restful place to stay while in Amboise. Superb value !!!

We stayed with Gloria and Bob for 3 nights recently as part of a week's holiday in the Loire Valley. The house is beautiful, the location perfect with everything within easy walking distance and the accommodation excellent. The breakfast was served in a conservatory, opening out onto a beautiful garden. Breakfast consisted of lovely fresh bread, pastries, cereal and a selection of cheeses.Bob and Gloria were exceptional hosts and so very helpful with advice and recommendations about local attractions and restaurants - It really made the stay extra special. I could not rate a stay here highly enough.
