The staff was very nice and friendly. Excellent location. The room was quiet, warm and clean. Breakfast was simple but good. The only down side is the size of the bathroom, which is tiny! The room itself is confortable but quite small as well. We could safely park our bikes at their car parking. Overall, it was really good to stay at Le Blason!

After a long drive from Mont St Michel we were warmly greeted by reception. Our room was in the tower at the end of the hall which was quiet, spacious and tastefully furnished with antiques. Though our room was full of antiques, the bathroom was up to date.
We are glad we had two nights in the Chateau so we could experience their Michelin 1 star restaurant that was exceptional. We decided to go with the special menu of the evening which was a excellent 7 course seafood theme. Each course was artfully presented and a delight to the pallet with a appropriate time between each course. Our reservation was at 19:00 and when we finished we could not believe it was 23:00! It was great to not have to drive but to just walk upstairs to our room.
The staff at the chateau were very helpful with directions to the various sights. We would have had dinner twice at the chateau restaurant, but one night they were closed. So when I emailed 6 months before our arrival for dinner reservations they provided several restaurant recommendations and also offered to make a reservation for us!
The only "con" to the chateau was the value for the money for breakfast/ The spread was very good as was the quality of the food, but IMO, a bit pricey.

Stayed for a night in July. Grounds with Italian gardens nestled between the Castle walls of Amboise and the river were impressive. A five minute walk to the Town of Amboise and Chateau where Davinci is buried. Hotel was well kept for an older venue but beware there are no elevators. Wasn't planning on the workout dragging our luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The room was acceptable for one night. Large bed and clean however the river view was dissapointing from a tiny skylight that you had to stand on a chair to see out of. There were some charming things like the breakfast in the gardens and old school keys that weigh 5 lbs. The best part by far was the restaurant and we would visit again and recommend this hotel because of it. Traditional French cuisine that was one of our best meals in France with a fabulous view of the River below. It made for a romantic evening and allowed me to overlook the lack of elevators.

The hotel staff is exceptionally helpful and welcoming. The rooms and lounge areas are beautifully decorated and very clean. The hotel is a very short walk from the Chateau entrance (the walls are 50 feet away), from the old town, and from the bridge over the river. About a fifteen minute walk from the railroad station. Rooms on the second floor (using the ground floor, first floor, second floor system) are spacious, with historic beams and sloped ceilings. Our bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom is large, with a comfortable tub and plenty of hot water. The hotel staff greeted us warmly whenever we came or left. They helped us communicate with the tour companies we had booked. They arranged an early morning cab for us. And corrected an error I had made in the date of the reservation.
