My husband and I stayed in Amboise overnight en route to Gascony earlier this summer. I found the hotel in the "Special Places to Stay" guide and I'm so glad we built our route around it, it was wonderful, probably the best hotel I've stayed in. The staff were very friendly and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble.
Our room on the ground floor overlooking the front garden was spotless. The bed was really comfortable, the bathroom was fully stocked with high quality toiletries, robes, slippers... The room itself was of a very high standard - traditionally decorated with 4 large windows and a lovely view across to the chateau. We had our own entrance from the front of the hotel which meant it was very quiet as no-one was coming and going outside. There is no restaurant in the hotel to serve an evening meal but the concierge was able to find us a table in a very nice creperie in central Amboise (5 mins walk away).
Breakfast the next morning was delicious and a real highlight of the stay - a basket of freshly baked bread, croissants and pastries on the table, fresh flowers, fruit juices plus a continental breakfast buffet and cereals. There was a choice of tea or coffee and the pain au chocolats were divine - the best I've ever tasted!
This is a fabulous hotel, a real treat to stay in and the perfect way to start our holiday - we can't wait to go back next year!
