“Charming manor just outside the main tourist area.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

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...

Room Tip: The rooms were quiet and calm. We had a "superior" room, but I would have gone for a pres...

We had a wonderful visit at Le Clos d'Ambois. Our room was very charming and nicely decorated. Even though we were in an upper floor room where the ceiling slants, it was still very comfortable. If you are tall, make sure you get the superior room for a little extra charge. The location is ideal within walking distance to all the sites and shops in Ambois. The real highlight of our visit was the great staff at this hotel. They could not be more friendly or helpful. I would like to single out Pauline, the receptionist. She was extremely courteous, patient and very helpful with directions and even helpful with parking our car.

Stayed two nights as our base for touring the Loire Valley. Thoroughly enjoyed being here instead of in noisy Tours. The garden is beautiful and tranquil. Staff could not be more accommodating, and the breakfast and bar just right. The first room we were given was in the carriage house and had an awful odor and was a bit cramped. The fellow on duty quickly changed course and put us in a very pleasant room in the main building and moved our luggage for us. They were excellent with restaurant suggestions, and very helpful throughout our stay. The location is only a 3 block walk to the heart of the town and the chateau, and it was a quiet precinct at night.

We just spent one night at this beautiful hotel and we were devastated that we couldn't spend more time here.
From the moment we stepped into this beautiful green oasis in the middle of medieval streets we felt relaxed.
The family room we booked was enormous and we were very comfortable. The pool was was perfect and just serene amongst the beautiful landscaped back-drop.
This hotel is a little gem and a must for anyone staying in Amboise.

Room Tip: All the room are great but the family room is enormous

Stayed here for 3 nights the middle of May. Used as a base to visit the Loire Valley. Overall an excellent experience! Reception personnel always willing to help! Enjoyed a full breakfast each morning with excellent service. Room was clean and appropriate for our needs. Loved the grounds and outside tables and chairs. Property is well landscaped and maintained for how old it is. The age of property adds to the French feel to it. Parking is free but a little tight but must remember you are in a City setting. In summary we enjoyed our stay and would come again.

What a wonderful hotel!
I assume due to a cancellation we got upgraded to a better room for the same price as our original room. The staff are wonderful; very attentive and caring. My wife had her wallet stolen just before we left Paris, and we were given a phone at the hotel to use for as long as we needed to sort things out. At no charge.
Our room was in an old carriage house/stable. It was spacious, very well appointed, and the bathroom was about as large and updated as you could hope for.
The hotel itself was a chateau and absolutely beautiful, with park like grounds, and even a swimming pool behind vegetation at the real of the property, so if you're enjoying the quiet of the rest of the property the pool would not be a distraction.
We had the breakfast which was very good and reasonably priced.
Our whole stay there for 2 nights and the breakfasts was the same as a one night at a 2 star hotel in Paris. I believe Le Clos has 4 stars.
It's about a 5 to 10 minute walk from center of Amboise. Easy to get to without out the noise and activity of the center.
We can't say enough good things about our stay there, highly recommend it, and would return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: We had the room at the near end of the carriage house. It's most likely less expensive than the...

Can't think of anything that I would list as a negative. Room was spacious and bed was very comfortable. The service was friendly, we very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel in every way.
