“The only place to stay in Amboise. 100% Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2009

I booked Hotel Le Manoir les Minimes for two nights for a quiet weekend getaway. It was 100% perfect. The Hotel is located just off the main square and set beneath the stunning Château d'Amboise. The Staff really could not do enough. I booked on their online booking engine and within minutes received a personal note confirming my reservation. I sent a couple emails with various requests prior to my stay for dinner reservations and bike hire and every time they were replied to within minutes. The customer service was spectacular. We stayed in the Rose-tree Pavilion and can recommend the classic room even though it is there lead-in category, as you are in Loire for the Chateau's, wine, stunning country side and a good night’s sleep. So for only 122 Euro the room was perfect. The only suggestion is to stay on room only basis and venture into town for breakfast as you will get better value for the 13 Euro charged at the hotel. No saying that the Breakfast was a disappointment but there is more choice in town for the same spend.
The restaurants in Amboise are small and intimate so dinner reservations are recommended. But the food and wine is excellent. The L'Epicerie is great for a more relaxed evening and the boeuf tournedos was out of this world. However the highlight of the trip was Les Pavillon des Lys. We opted for the 8 course set and were blown away with the cuisine. A Real Treat with superb staff again.
I would also recommend hiring bikes to explore the region, though a good level of fitness is needed as the route to Château de Chenonceau is rather hilly.
Thank you to the team at Le Manoir les Minimes for making our weekend break very memorable.
It was as said before 100% perfect.
Kind regards,
Simon and Belinda

This hotel is just over the road from the River Loire with good grounds and parking in front.

They serve a buffet breakfast, have no dining room but their recommendations for dinner in Amboise town (15 minutes walk) were excellent and they booked all 3 meals for us.

We stayed in the ground floor of a small cottage by the gate. It was spacious and very peaceful apart from on 2 of the nights when the people upstair appeared to be training Babar the baby elephant to run and jump round the room prior to settling down for the night. The guests who came after them were extremely quiet and we did not hear them at all.

The town of Amboise is a wonderful surprise and the chateau is well worth a couple of hours with wonderful views over the town and the Loire as a bonus.

We spent a couple of nights in Le Manoir on our one week tour of Le Loire. I wish we had stayed longer.
Amboise is a lovely little town in the centre of the region which is ideally placed to provide easy access to many of the best sights in the Loire Valley. There are a number of excellent restaurants within easy walking distance of Le Manoir which is ideally situated with a commanding position overlooking the river.
Although the property has no pool it really lives up to its four fleur de lys rating. We stayed in one of their opulent suites which was beautifully furnished and extremely spacious. Even though our room overlooked the road alongside the property, the soundproofing meant that we could hardly hear the passing traffic.
The staff in the hotel were extremely helpful and courteous and went out of their way to deal with our requests.
I can warmly recommend the property. It is not cheap but in this case we felt that we got value for our money.

Following a drive that would exhausted even the heartiest of truckers, checking into this place was akin to taking a shower after toiling in a coal mine.
It's very cute and quaint but is a very well appointed and relaxing hotel.
We opted for one of the 2nd floor manor house rooms, replete with beams straddling the ceiling and a bath big enough for two. We instantly jumped into the aforementioned tub and then dived into our cosy bath robes before ordering a bottle of red to our room. Gilles (one of the staff) who is amazing, possesses a great sense of humour and brought the wine to us (complete with delicious petit fours) was one of the highlights of staying here and I hope the hotel know how lucky they are to have him. He also has the most 'French' laugh my ears have ever had the pleasure to experience.
It is quite expensive for what you essentially receive, but it was worth paying for after our long trip. The view from our room was also amazing with the Chateau Amboise to our left and the Loire right in front of us.
Amboise itself has unfortunately succumbed a little too much to tourism, but this meant we spent more time relaxing in this gorgeous hotel.

Situated in an old manoir. We stayed at DLX room in the pavillion, no views but a lovelly big room with a nice bathroom. Room was more than big enough for three. Within walking distance to the castle and town center of Amboise.

This is one of the most beautiful hotels that I have ever stayed in! It felt as if I was staying in someone's private home. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed, and have modern large bathrooms. The owners and employees are delightful, friendly and so helpful with restaurant suggestions and guidance for touring the area. You are within walking distance to the Chateau and the main town center. Centrally located with easy driving access to lots of other Loire Valley chateaus. I can't wait to return!

Le Manoir Minimes was a perfect place for our trip to the Loire Valley. The rooms were lovely and the service was extra ordinary.
There was parking which was important since we had a car.
Centrally located, allowed us to visit all the Chateaux and wineries with ease.
