We were a group of five couples visiting the Loire Valley and stayed five nights at Manoir les Minimes. Let me address the negative first--the 2nd. floor (French) rooms are, first of all, up a lot of stairs and, second, really attic-eaves type rooms. They are well equipped, authentically wood beamed and very charming but rather small. Our room had one not really large window but with spectacular views of the Loire and its bridge as well as of Amboise Castle. Some of our friends' rooms were smaller and some had a less fabulous view. I would strongly urge visitors to pay the difference for a large first floor room. That having been said, the hotel is very well equipped and offers all the amenities one would wish of a four star hotel. The public rooms are beautiful, the outdoor patio nice and breakfasts are excellent. The hotel is spotlessly clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and generally very helpful. Occasionally when only one person is around, that person can become somewhat overwhelmed and unable to give time to one's inquiries or requests.
Amboise is a lovely town with lots of charm, nice shops and very good restaurants. We went for a hot air balloon ride and I would heartily recommend it. The front desk will be happy to make arrangements for the experience and even called us on our cell to confirm that he was able to accommodate our time schedule, etc.
