We stayed in a ground-level room and unfortunately did not find our room fairy tale-like at all. Our room was nice and large, including a big bathroom, but the bathroom was an open area - no door to the toilet or the shower, which was very awkward as our daughter was travelling with my husband and I.
As well, we had booked a room on the first floor (4 months ahead of time), and were told 2 weeks before we left home for our holiday that there was a mix-up and we had been reassigned to the ground-level room. Instead of a panoramic view of the valley, we had a view of the road, literally 2 feet from the window. The room was hot and stuffy, no air conditioning or fan, and a LOT of bugs and spiders because we had to keep the windows open day and night to try to reduce the heat so we could sleep. There was a dank smell in this room (probably from the 400 year old sink?) which would be an issue for anyone with breathing problems.
Breakfast was nice, especially the cheeses.
Overall, we felt our room and the experience we had was a disappointment and over-priced. Next time, we would stay in Amboise so we could walk to the sights in town - trying to find parking in town was a challenge.More
