“Liked this hotel”
Reviewed 9 August 2007

My husband and I were travelling to South of France and spent one night in Amboise. We had read about this hotel on Tripadvisor and decided to book.
We had a little difficulty finding it, mainly due to roadworks.
The parking there is great, large park with decent-sized spaces.
The staff are great, and while we attemped pidgin French, they easily swtiched to fluent English. Each time we had reason to speak with the staff, they were friendly and helpful.
We walked into town, it's quite walkable. We spent some time in town, bought some wine and found the walk back much longer - weighed down with 9 bottles of wine.
We walked back to town later for dinner. A number of the reviews mentioned this hotel needed you to have a car - but it really is a walkable distance from town. We walked back quite late that night.
Breakfast was great following morning. We came down at the very last minute and while the staff certainly wanted to tidy away, they allowed us to finish our breakfast completely before taking anything away.

We were two couples travelling to Dordogne. Needed an overnight stay. Read reviews in TripAdviser and booked Le Vinci. We were delighted with it. Great location away from the buzz yet easy distance by car - 5 minutes- from centre. Accommodation was excellent- reasonably spacious, extremely clean and well appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful-the manager made us a route printout from net for ongoing journey. The breakfast was excellent value for money as was the accommodation. If going back to the area I would make Le Vinci first choice.

We recently spent four nights at this 26 room hotel in the town of Amboise in the Chateaux country, and were very impressed by the quality of the facilities as well as with the amiable multi-lingual staff.

Although we tried to book through an internet site, we received no response, and therefore called the hotel directly. As my French over the telephone is rusty, we were pleased that the staff spoke English. She went out of her way to accomodate our request for a king-sized bed for our four nights.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted and helped to our room, which was very comfortable and well equipped with a first-rate bed, fine cotton sheets and towels (that had no odor of bleach), in-room coffee/tea maker, a safe and a mini-bar. An iron and ironing board are available on request, and an ice machine and buckets are available near the lobby. Although we seldom take breakfast in hotels, we did so at Le Vinci because it was a substantial buffet that lasted us until dinner. Also, the hotel is not in the main part of the town, so we couldn't walk to a bakery or cafe.

However, being in a residential area about two minutes from the town center, the hotel has nice landscaping, secure parking and is very quiet. Due to some road construction with detours, we had some trouble finding it. The location for exploring the Loire Valley is excellent.

Staff recommendations for dinner were excellent; we had superb food and wine at very reasonable prices.

Le Vinci Loire Valley (Best Western) is spotless, and exceeded the standards that we would expect in the $100 range. We would return in a heartbeat!

My husband and I recently stayed for two nights at the Best Western Le Vinci Loire Valley. For those who prefer a more modern hotel, this is your place! The hotel is immaculate, the rooms are nice sized with modern decor, big windows, and updated bathrooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is plenty of free parking.

The location is great if you have a car and are looking to explore the area but a bit far from the center of Amboise if you don't have your own transportation. Easy drive to Chenonceaux and close to Tours.
