“Lovely medium class hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

This is our third visit to the hotel. It is a great hotel for the family as it has a garden with a swimming pool ,tennis courts and mini golf and lovely views over Amboise. The staff are very helpful and the bedrooms are of a good standard with air-conditioning. The only criticism of the hotel would be the restaurant our meal on the first night was practically in edible my chicken was so tough I could not cut it . It is a 25 minute walk into Amboise ,uphill on the way back so it was not practical on our first night.

Our family (2adults/2children) stayed one night at the Novotel Amboise. We found the staff friendly, helpful and polite, the facilities neat and clean and overall would recommend this hotel. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, this is a generic Novotel stay - we could have been in London, Sydney or California - apart from the magnificent views of the town of Amboise in the valley below. A great one night hotel- our room - a Superior family room- was small and had no storage space for a longer stay, but was perfectly adequate for our needs. We ate in the Restaurant and were all pleased with our meals- their children's menu was excellent and had good choices.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the town of Amboise.

As with all Novotels, very clean and smart. This one is only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Amboise and close to all the Loire chateux. It has excellent facilities - swimming pool, tennis court, table tennis and even a crazy golf course (although the latter does need attention, but was fun all the same). The food is good, but it is a shame they are now focussing on a standard menu at all the Novotels, rather than giving local options like they used to. Would recommend.

The NOVOTEL Amboise is a good option when visiting castle and wine taste in Loire region. Good acommodations, swimming pool, nice view and in 5 minutes by car you are in the centre of Amboise. Other touristic cities are closeby. Good value for the money.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view to the mini golf, otherwise your view will be the parking lot.

We had not stayed at this hotel for several years but will not leave it so long next time. The facilities at the hotel are excellent and the staff manage to handle both large parties and individuals with the same friendliness. We were glad we had our tennis rackets and table tennis things with is. The food is of a high standard and this matters as it saves a drive into the town which is important after a long drive

Spent one night in this Novotel on return from trip to the South of France. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hotel is situated about half a mile from the main road but is screened by a small wood, or forest, and is wonderfully secluded. We received a free upgrade to a room which followed the Novotel formula but with better quality fittings than the norm. From our room there was a wonderful view of the delightful town of Amboise and its chateau. Evening meal was of a significantly higher standard than the usual Novotel fare and the service was friendly and efficient. The dining room was well appointed, on two levels and overlooking a well kept terrace. We had our bikes with us and the route to the town is a short downhill run from the hotel, along a quiet road. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Think all rooms would be quiet, but those overlooking the town and chateau are situated at the rear...
