Reviewed 20 October 2011

We stayed here in September for a few nights and enjoyed our comfortable room, located in the attic, with ancient exposed oak beams, good linen and a satisfactory small bathroom. The staff are friendly, there is a send out laundry service available ( 5 kilos for 16 euro which saves precious time), and the breakfast is satisfactory. I love older style hotels and this one fitted the bill perfectly, with its lovely beams and winding staircases. Well priced option.

After having picked a more expensive hotel originally, we found this and based on the reviews and great price choose it instead. We were not disappointed. The gentleman at the desk was super friendly, spoke English very well, and was very helpful. You are probably a 5 minute walk from the center of town which is quite reasonable. The room was very small and had low hanging beams. The bathroom reminded me of a cabin on a cruise ship. So those who are tall, round about the middle, or claustrophobic shouldn't stay here. However, you really can't beat the price and you're not generally in France for the hotel room. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed 2 nights here whilst in Amboise. The location was great the staff were lovely and the gentleman at the front desk spoke good english. Problem was the room. Smallest bathroom we have experienced in our 15 days in France. The shower was tiny, you couldn't get away from the shower curtain, it would try and cling to you whilst you washed, yuk! The room was rather warm (mid September) but when we used the a/c it dripped all night on our son and he woke up in the middle of the night to the sound of drip, drip, drip and a drenched pillow. There was no fridge, tea or coffee which by this time we were getting pretty fed up with. The room was tight for us, 2A & 2C(13,14). Although the price was very good, 170 euro for two nights with parking, it was definitley only worth that and definitely no more. My adivse pay a little more and stay somewhere else. It's a shame as the staff were very helpful, but the accommodation lets them down big time!

I've stayed in a few hotels and B&B's in Amboise, and this is probably my favorite. The prices can't be beat for this type of budget hotel in the center of town, and it's a very old, historic building with a lot of charm and character.

My single room was very small with a large double bed, small closet/storage area, and very little room for walking or anything else! That said, the room is clean, and I rather like the "boat style" bathroom, as everything in there as modern, immaculate, and functions properly. It happened to be rather warm while i was there, and with no A/C, it was a bit warm and stuffy in the room... I managed okay, but i could see this being an issue for some. I didn't spend much time in the room fortunately.

The hotel offers free use of a computer w/ internet in the front lobby. The owners speak great English and are very friendly and accommodating. Quaint breakfast room/restaurant, though i did not take advantage of it while visiting. Very short work to the chateau, Clos Luce, and shops/restaurants in this very small town. I like this hotel and would stay here again.

Stayed for one night in July as part of a driving trip around France. The location was great - about 5 minutes walk into the centre of Amboise and ideal for us with public parking right outside, although I think the hotel also does have parking available. The hotel is full of character, the rooms are basic though. A bit like an etap room, with the capsule type bathroom but perfectly fine for one night and very clean. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel so can't comment. We had breakfast at the Chocolatier in Amboise and can thoroughly recommend that! La Reserve for dinner was also very very good. Would happily recommend this hotel.
