Sometimes when the Gods are smiling and the fates are very kind, you might be lucky enough in your travels to find a hotel like the wonderful and charming Le Manoir Saint Thomas in Amboise! Without any doubt at all, this was absolutely the most wonderful place my best friend and I stayed while on our vacation trip through France! Absolutely everything about this darling Inn was perfect! The rooms were wonderful and spacious, the amazing bathroom simply blew us away with it's huge walk-in shower (what a treat), double vanity sink and huge fluffy towels, and the breakfast was in a large wonderful sun-filled room and each morning we simply marveled over the wonderful assortment of eggs, breads and cheeses and delicious coffee! And even better than all of that was the amazing, friendly and attentive service that we received from the staff at the Le Manoir Saint! Young Frederick, the manager, was by far the most amazing and professional manager we encountered on our trip and he went far, far out of his way to ensure that everything was just perfect for us! One day it was pouring rain and he offered to drive us to the restaurant across town so we wouldn't get wet. We took him up on it! Amazing! There is no question in my mind that he will be running a 5-star resort or Inn one day-he is that good and he is a true asset to this hotel! If you are planning a trip to beautiful little Amboise, don't think twice! This is the place you will want to stay and you will be so happy that you did! Susanne & Debbie

We stayed at this hotel (1 of 7) on a trip across France and could not have been happier with our choice. The hotel is perfectly located on a small square on a relatively quiet street just a few minutes walk from the chateau and is everything else you would want to see in this lovely little town. Our room was comfortable and charming (and I don't mean in that cluttered, outdated b&b way) with a big comfy bed and a bathroom that was updated, but with a little bit of style.

We are not breakfast eaters so I can't speak to that. But the staff was so helpful! The restaurant recommendations were fabulous! One of the best meals of our trip was had at Le Patio, which we never would have found if they hadn't recommended it. The hotel staff even gave us a small bottle of raspberry liquor and a sweet note of good wishes for our wedding anniversary. I must have mentioned in one of my emails inquiring about room availability that the purpose of our trip was to celebrate our anniversary. So sweet that they remembered! And they provide free, secured, off street parking. All at a VERY good price, relative to other hotels in the Loire Valley.

my mom and i stayed here for 3 nights during our tour of the Loire Valley castles. once we found the hotel, we realized what a great location it has! park the car and walk to the main part of town in under 5 minutes. fantastic!

Frederic was so welcoming and gave great directions for getting to the castles in the least amount of time. i was disappointed we only saw him on checkin, but the woman at the desk was also very nice. she spoke some English but we definitely communicated better in French.

on arrival in our room, there was a welcome note and a bottle of forest strawberry liqueur. nice touch!

the room was large and had a little entry with a desk off the bathroom. the beds were really comfy and the brought us real pillows at turn down (thank you!).

this is the only hotel in our stay that actually made a point of honoring our request to reuse our towels. they were left just as we'd hung them on the rack. perfect. wonderful. thank you for adhering to your environmental policy!

we didn't have breakfast at the hotel as the local cafes and bakeries had breakfast for much less than the 17 euros they were asking at the hotel. when we came back with our yogurt or pastries, they had no problem with us using forks or spoons and enjoying our food in the lobby.

they have a very nice property with tables and chairs and a pool. we took the opportunity to enjoy wine, bread and cheese outside one afternoon. it was a nice place to hang out. it was too cold and rainy to even think about using the pool but it was a nice size.

you can park at the hotel for free which i didn't expect. that was greatly appreciated.

i'd go back and stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights Mar/April. It is a very charming hotel full of character. The bathrooms are extremely modern and the room we stayed in was very comfortable. The breakfasts were so good that we enjoyed them every day we were there. Isabelle and Frederic were extremely helpful to us lending us a map of the area and recommending chateaux and places to explore. There is also private parking at the hotel which is certainly a bonus in this area. Amboise is a beautiful town and very handy to everything the Loire Valley has to offer. We certainly hope we will have the pleasure of staying there again.

It's hard not be slightly overcome with the beauty of Amboise and 300 meters from the amazing castle is this hotel. Welcoming, clean, quaint and a lovely breakfast. And if you are lucky the charming Isabelle will be on duty.

We choose Amboise as our base for touring the Loire Valley and its many grand chateaux, and booked three nights at the Le Manoir Saint Thomas for our accommodations. It turned out to be a great choice as the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, our room was very comfortable, and the up-to-date, designer bathroom was furnished with excellent amenities! Also, the hotel's private, off-street parking was a real plus as there are very few available parking spaces during the day in the town. We will certainly will try to stay there on our next visit to the Loire Valley.

A cordial welcome, and a nice spacious room, with a supremely comfortable bed. Nice bathroom, and toiletries replenished daily. Maintenance needs attention though: there was an area of plaster missing near the window, and the hearth area is unattractive, with scorch marks in an empty fireplace. There was plenty of hanging space, but no drawers to unpack non-hanging clothes. We found neither of the two chairs in the room was comfortable: also the loo is on the far side of the room from the bathroom, which was inconvenient. There is some noise from the road outside: light sleepers may prefer to book a room on the garden side of the house. Service at breakfast was initially prompt, but was not followed up during the course of the meal; they don't seem to want you to need more tea or coffee.
