“A real gem and ideal base for Loire Valley”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

Great boutique hotel with secure off-street parking. Lovely grounds with a heated pool. Beautifully restored warm cosy rooms with large modern bathrooms. We stayed in one of the suites - plenty of room for 3 adults and a nice garden outlook. Very personable and exceptional service from all who looked after us (owner, front desk and breakfast room). Breakfast was a treat - very traditional and wholesome. Could not fault this hotel and would definitely return and recommend. This hotel is conveniently located to central Amboise where there are many exceptional restaurants, patisseries, as well as the nearby Amboise Castle and Clos Luce (Leonardo Da Vinci's home - well worth a visit). We used this hotel as a 5-day base to visit Chateaus and Caves (vignerons/wine) within the Loire Valley - all within easy driving distance. We visited other towns but Amboise has that certain charm and is not cluttered with too many tourists.

Room Tip: Breakfast - don't be late as your selection will be limited. However, a staff member will renew...

Stayed here for a night on the last leg of a journey from south of France

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good family room with sofa bed in separate lounge area and a large bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower

Pool was clean but small - my youngest boy stood on an exposed nail (of which there were a few) on the decking - not impressed (he or I)

Ideally situated for Amboise castle, eateries and shops

Also the best buffet breakfast we had on our 17 day trip

Le Manoir Saint Thomas is a couple of street back from the chateau and main street meaning it's quiet at night. A stunning building with some fantastic rooms to explore and helpful staff. The bedroom was large with high ceiling and shutters on the windows, the only disappointment was the shower which was just an over the bath affair and the price of the breakfast which we didn't have. Although the weather didn't allow us to use it, the hotel has an outdoor swimming pool which i can imagine would be great in the height of the summer, especially if you've been walking or hired a bike

For starters, Isabelle, the manager treated us like we were part of the family. She was warm, friendly and issued great suggestions. She placed us in a room downstairs so we would avoid carrying heavy luggage. She also suggested and made reservations to eat at two great restaurants very close by: L' Alliance and Le Lion d'Or.
The property is centrally located; it has interior space for parking. Breakfast was very good but they could improve the selection/variety of choices.
The house is charming. The premises are very well kept. The beds are comfortable.
We have many pleasant memories from our stay at this place.

Room Tip: Select a room downstairs if you have to drag heavy luggage.

Staying in the lovely manor house was perfect for visiting the many castles/chateaux around the Loire Valley. Le Manoir St. Thomas was within walking distance of everything in Amboise and had secure parking that was definitely one of the reasons we chose it. Breakfast was very nice and the manor house is beautifully appointed- you feel as if you are in someone's very special home. The staff was excellent, helping us with both suggestions and reservations for restaurants, plugs for our computers, and our baggage. Our room had the most wonderful bathtub, with brand new fixtures. We loved it! Too bad the weather did not allow us to use the outdoor swimming pool.

Room Tip: We were on the higher floor, that had a sitting room with a couch. Very comfortable.

Stayed here 3 nights. Our room was on the top floor, which was a bit of a hike with the luggage. The room was clean and spacious. There was a complimentary bottle of liqueur. The bed looked unpromising, saggy in the middle, but turned out to be quite comfortable. Oddly, there was no headboard, which seemed unusual in a hotel of this character and price. The staff were super cordial and helpful, making dinner reservations for us and recommendations re: places to see. The room we were in had bad wifi access, so we had to go downstairs to get a signal. The living room of this building is very nice, and we spent time sitting there visiting, as well as on the patio. We did not use the pool, as it was chilly in June. Very nice bathroom. I would stay here again, but in a lower room.

Le Manoir St Thomas is centrally located for all of Amboise's attractions and is situated in a lovely old building with rooms full of character. Secure parking in the hotel grounds is a real bonus in a town where parking is tricky. It's a shame that the restaurant at the hotel no longer exists, especially when so much promotional material suggests it's still there. We didn't pay 17 Euros for breakfast...
The bathroom in our room was excellent with a free standing cast iron bath and large powerful shower with a selection of good products. The pool is also nice; the photos on the hotel website certainly make it look good.
A couple of minor points were that the mattress felt cheap and rather hard and the TV in the room didn't have all the channels it should have had. Overall, did the job pretty well.

Room Tip: Room 10 at the top of the house is big and spacious with a lovely bathroom.
