The site is very pretty with a fantastic warm pool, petit restaurant and even a sauna (we didn't use the sauna, it seemed relatively new, but small - reserve at the front desk). The staff was pleasant and the grounds were very well-kept. The bed was comfortable and the linens were crisp and clean. The Hermes toiletries were wonderful.
The bathroom (room #10, a superior room) was a bit cramped and the flush on the toilet was too powerful for courtesy flushing, if you know what I mean. The shower was nice, but it was a handheld type. The angle of the bathtub meant it was a bit awkward to get in and out of (especially when wet; especially for seniors). The room had a great view and air conditioning that worked well once we really took a look at the controls (the default had a timer setting to turn off too quickly - we wanted it icy, American-style).
It felt a bit "out of the way", but not terribly so; it was only a 5 minute walk (albeit a lonely walk after 10pm).
I would have rated this location higher, but the price point for this hotel (180 EUR) was on par/a slight bit higher than other nearby 4 star properties. I was happy with the hotel and our stay, but to be honest, if I go back to Amboise, I would also look at the Le Manor Saint Thomas hotel (just down the street, also very pretty, with a pool) or le Pavillon de Lys (closer to the center, less expensive), or the Manoir Minimes (steps from the castle, gorgeous property, recommended by my French friends), all of which were slightly less expensive, but looked just as impressive...
