I stayed at La Breche for three nights in mid-October with my daughter. The location close to the train station was perfect for us as we arrived after dark and left at 6:00 am a few days later. Since the restaurant is busy until fairly late there was no problem with the late arrival. We were greeted by name and with the scents of delicious food.
We had room #10 on the top floor. It exceeded our expectations. The decor was warm and inviting, the beds and pillows comfortable, the bathroom spacious and recently remodeled. The only minor flaw was a slightly strange odor in the bathroom but with the door kept shut it didn't come into the bedroom.
The walk to the town of Amboise was about 10-12 minutes. The road just outside the hotel is a little too dark but once we were beyond that it was fine and we felt perfectly safe even late at night. The walk across the bridge provides a great view of the castle although in mid-October it is not lit at night.
I ate breakfast one morning - it was a nice selection of food including some ham, cheese, and hard boiled eggs.
We enjoyed our dinner immensely. The three courses actually became six when they served a lovely cream soup at the beginning, a scoop of pistachio ice cream before our dessert, and a small chocolate-dipped macaroon after the dessert. The service was very attentive and M. Berthelot personally inquired after us.
Both M. and Mme. Berthelot were kind to us and patient with my French. They accomodated our early departure and prepared our bill ahead of time and made it simple to leave early.
I would definitely stay there again!
