"Reasonably priced hotel on the border of Amboise"
Good base to explore chateaux in the Loire valley if you came by car, the hotel is 5 min drive from Clos Luce (but not a walking distance). Excellent price - quality ratio. Rooms have flatscreen TV, very comfortable double beds with thick mattresses and expandable sofas (for kids or adults). Swimming pool and mini golf outside. Free parking. There is some family entertainment in the hotel, incl. Xbox and billiard table. Restaurant offers tasty food and good choice of breakfast. Rooms are simple but have everything a traveler needs for a stay over. Recommend to families with kids looking for reasonably priced accommodation in Loire valley.
Nice location, excellent staff, and a good hotel overall, but I had one bad experience (which was mitigated via a generous discount and complimentary breakfast). The family suite that I had booked was given away to someone else, and I was offered a smaller room when I arrived. Upon complaint, I was offered a generous discount and free breakfast next day, while acknowledging that it was their mistake to switch me to a smaller room even though my reservation was clearly for the larger family suite. The explanation given to me was that their reception desk had "assumed" that a smaller room would be "sufficient" for my family and that even though I had booked a larger room, I don't really need the larger room and it can be given to another guest who had more members in their family!

Took a while to find hotel. but when we got there found it was a good ,comfortable, clean hotel. We would have liked to explore Amboise but we were too far out of the town. It would be nice to have local transport into the town.
We had the evening meal and breakfast. Both were very nice, possibly overpriced.
Our experience was a good one and we enjoyed our stay. Staff were very helpful and welcoming.

We went in not knowing what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was charming, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was neat, clean and very spacious. It had a kettle which was a big plus for us. The bathroom was very modern and nice.
Only downside was not having an elevator for our luggage.

Lying in the valley of Loire in central France, Amboise is a small market town on the banks of the river. Leonardo da Vinci once lived in the area and Clos Lucé, the manor house in which he stayed, is now a museum dedicated to the artist. The imposing Chateau d'Amboise looks on the town below and is worth a visit; the panoramic views from the gothic grounds are stunning.
