“Excellent location, no restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

This was a one night stop over on our way through France. Lovely hotel, excellently appointed, room very stylish.. Just two niggles. Our bathroom was large and well equipped with a corner bath but the only shower was a hand held one over the bath, no shower curtain. The other niggle was no restaurant on site. Don't let this put you off though as there were lots of restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance, and the hotel staff will book for you. Free parking on site.

Room Tip: Ours was a second floor room with no lift. If climbing is a problem for you ask for a room on the f...

We stayed 7 nights at this hotel in a corner junior suite. We drove our car through the gate and realized this place was very special. The hotel staff throughout our stay were simply the best. The hotel is very charming and has an outdoor area to enjoy wine and cheese. We felt we were in a beautiful private home.
The location is in town and we easily walked to the attractions.
We would definitely stay there again. It was a wonderful hotel with excellent staff.

Room Tip: Book a junior suite for a special treat.

This hotel was our first hotel in our France 17 days trip and it was the best. We stayed in a Double Deluxe Bedroom located on the second floor of the Manor (night of May 17th 2013) which was very spacious, very clean, tastefully decorated and very quiet. We did not have breakfast but it looked lovely. The bathroom was extremely clean and we loved the wooden floor and the design in general. Bed was very large and the most comfortable that we had in France. The young man at reception upon arrival was gentle and kind. Guillaume, who we met in the morning - knows the business and it is our opportunity to wish him good luck. Guillaume your place is perfect! One last thing - location is perfect (walking to the river and to restaurants and any of the interest points of Amboise) and there is free parking on the premises.
We recommend Le Pavillon des Lys to anyone who seeks class, coziness, good service and comfort room.

It was bliss to stay in this hotel after being in Paris, where hotel rooms would probably be banned as too small if they were bedrooms in houses. Our second floor room was very spacious, with (oh, the joy) plenty of drawer space so that we could actually unpack and not have to live out of a suitcase. Good sized bathroom, very well appointed with both bath and shower, and separate loo. There's no lift, but very helpful staff happily carry your bags to your room. Comfortable beds. Beautifully presented breakfast with juice, little pots of apple purée, cheese, ham, croissants, pain au chocolat, fresh fruit, cereals and lots more. On-site car parking, a real bonus. Tables where you can sit outside and enjoy a drink or just relax (though not exactly secluded, as they're en route to the parking - but it's not a problem). Several good restaurants are a very short stroll away, as is the main shopping street in Amboise and the chateau itself. I must agree with an earlier reviewer's comment about the infuriating wifi and its compulsory advertising, though. (And, mentioned in the same review, we weren't charged for the bottled water in our room, so either the policy has changed or there was a misunderstanding).

This hotel was our favorite in all of France! It is so charming with beautiful spacious rooms - ours had a view of the chateau from our bathroom which was also comfortable and spacious with a footed bathtub and a shower. The hotel is tastefully and elegantly decorated and furnished. The staff is very friendly and helpful and gave us very good recommendations for restaurants which were all within a five to ten minute walk from the hotel. The location is superb with a two minute walk to shops and our favorite Patisserie P. Gerard. Being in the heart of the lovely town of Amboise it was a great location to tour the Chateaus of the Loire valley. We were thrilled with the place and wished we could have stayed longer than our four nights.

Wonderful place to stay in Amboise. Quaint, charming and full of character. We stayed in the Terrace Suite on the second floor which was almost like having our own little apartment in Amboise. Great and quiet location to see the town and easy parking for our car which we used to get around the Loire Valley. Not a big property so not over-run with a lot of guests...and the demographics of the guests were very diverse...which is always a pleasure when you are on a journey. Breakfast was also very enjoyable. All in all , an excellent property...would recommend highly and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
