This hotel is ideally located for walks to the amazing castle and fun town full pleasant eateries. We were given a lovely room with a fantastic river view. The bedding is rather shabby; it needs to be upgraded at once. The restaurant has wonderful wine, food and service. The pool area is magnificent and adjacent to not to be missed caves.

historic look of small chateau; but definitely dated and worn; could maintain historic appeal and have updated interior; we had adjoining rooms for family of four; problem with bugs in the rooms; lots of them; dozens of dead ones on the walls and ceilings in the bathroom; we mentioned it to staff; they understood what we were talking about, but nothing was done; guess that's part of country French living??? very nice breakfast buffet; hotel was to arrange a mini-van for us for transport to and from St. Pierre des Corps train station; when picked up at train station, driver had sedan, not minivan; sat with some luggage on my lap; mentioned it to front desk staff, but same driver came with same car to take us back to train station! conveniently located near Amboise Chateau and just a few blocks from center of town; was great location for our day trip to chateaux of Loire valley (Chambord, Chenonceau and Cheverny);
beautiful views of the scenic Loire river (no boat traffic allowed in this region thanks to the river being named to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites;

The bedroom was so small and the bed so old, carpet and walls not as clean as they should be for a 4 star hotel, the bathroom was too small and tiles on the wall full of mould, outdoor very beautiful, inside horrible...if you are allergic, stay away...

Charming and unique - I recently stayed in this hotel while touring the Loire valley on bikes. The food was great and the bathrooms were very large and modern. The rooms are large by European standards. And we had a lovely view of the large Amboise Chateau right out the window.

We stayed at le Choiseul for two days while we toured the Loire chateaux to the east of Tours. It was good to stay in a hotel within easy reach of the Amboise town and chateau, but I felt that le Choiseul was a little past its best.

Our room was in an annexe, the Apothecary’s house, which was fine but it was right up in the eaves accessed by two steep and twisty staircases and carrying a heavy suitcase up these nearly gave my poor husband a hernia. The room was quiet with a lovely view of the garden, nicely decorated and the bathroom well equipped. There were light bulbs missing from the fitting in the wardrobe and dead light bulbs in the bathroom which were not replaced

However the next morning when I tried to tong my hair I came across a problem, there was no mirror near a electric point, the only mirrors were in the bathroom – which had no electric point! I asked at reception for a free standing mirror and was assured that housekeeping would provide on but needless to say, it never arrived. I cannot believe I am the only woman who has stayed in that room (no 20) to point out this lack of mirror with access to a power point to the hotel staff.

Secondly we decided to have a drink in the hotel bar before we went into town for something to eat, my husband asked for a dry martini cocktail, he was firstly brought a glass of vermouth with an ice cube – an easy mistake, but when he said he wanted a cocktail Dry Martini the barman just sloshed a bit of lukewarm gin and vermouth into a warm glass with a slice of lemon (not peel) and gave it to him – at 14 euros this was not good enough for a supposedly 4 star hotel.

When I paid the bill at the end of the stay the manager did take the cost of this drink off our bill which was fair enough.

The staff seemed more concerned about the people staying in the more expensive rooms and I feel it has lost its way. I will stay elsewhere when we return to this area.

Wonderful staff,' to die for' dinner and a breakfast- worth going out of your way for - everything you can imagine in a great place to stay: ambiance, history, fantastic food and the best locale. Other places should use their model - roomy bed chambers and bath rooms with modern conveniences.
Would stay no where else. Within walking distance to Amboise central, the Da Vinci compound, right on the river. Not far from Chenonceau (you can bike there). As with many places in France, the room lighting is not great, but what the heck - the view is great, the flowers wonderful and so very peaceful.
