I couldn't believe my luck when I discovered that the building we were overlooking on a previous visit to the Chateau Royal d'Amboise was in fact this beautiful hotel. I immediately booked a 2 night stay for a return visit to this area as it makes a great base from which to visit some of the other chateaux of the Loire. We had a double 'traditional' room on the second floor and it has the fairly low exposed beams as shown in the photos on the website. What a quirky room layout- it just makes the stay even more special. The staff are all very friendly and professional and they are more than happy to try and speak french with non-native speakers, book restaurants and advise on which chateaux to visit within your timeframe. This hotel is close enough, yet set a little distance away from the noise, to be able to easily explore Amboise on foot.
