The hotel is beautiful, both charming and quiet, and the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. It's a great place to simply relax or to use as a base for Loire tours. One of my best ever hotel stays.
Great setting and quality of the finish of the newly renovated chateau
It's the most beautiful castle imaginable in the most magical setting. A dream come to life. This hotel is not right in Amboise and is going to appeal to experienced travellers with a sense of adventure and romance. You'll need a map and plan to arrive before it gets dark or you will likely never find the Chateau.
Our host was most gracious and helpful. Our room was well appointed and fresh. The advertised air conditioning still needs to be installed.
We enjoyed everything
Everything was very nice and comfortable; we received excellent service. N/A
Excellent service, beautiful building.
My husband and I stayed at this Chateau for 2 nights during our honeymoon in October while visiting the castles in Loire Valley. It's a few minutes from Amboise, and only a short drive to all the famous castles we wanted to visit. Since it was low season, we were the only two guests there, and the staff were amazing! Breakfast was great, our room was absolutely gorgeous, and BIG! The view from our room was breathtaking, I could sit by the window all day if I had time :p I wish we could have stayed longer, it felt like home. The chateau also have washing and drying machine for guests to use, free of charge! And it has an elevator!! We will definitely stay there again when we go back to the loire valley.
The room was just superb and luxurious. It really felt like we were staying in a castle. The owner was perfect. He was there was when needed him but not on top of you.
Lovely environment, quiet and peaceful. The chateau had lots of character and the rooms were decorated beautifully with excellent bathrooms. It was well located, just outside of Amboise.
This was the best stay during our entire trip to France. We would go back in an instant! The room was huge and magnificent with french doors to a beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The bathroom was more or a spa with a tub, shower with numerous jets, two sinks, and private toilet. Big beautiful towels and bathrobes were set out for us. The petit dejeuner was beautifully presented and our hostess was absolutely divine. As a bonus we had a private parking spot in a garage. We couldn't ask for anything more! Everything was wonderful.
Exquisite room in a private house, private gardens, owner extremely helpful, great breakfast
The common sitting room and the breakfast one took in it were both lovely. The grounds are also very well kept up, and the pool looked inviting. The location is excellent, well within walking distance of everything. The hostess is charming. We actually stayed longer for breakfast than we intended on our final day before leaving for Paris since it was so comfortable there, and we were engaged in wonderful conversation with another couple from the us. There is also convenient parking on the premises. This is a b&b with three apartments. The one we stayed in was really for one person: the double-bed, shower, toilet and sink were in one small room with a small frosted glass divider separating the bed from the toilet and sink. The shower was open to the room. It helps if you have to have lived together for 37 years, as we have, to agree to this set-up, and still give it the positive rating that I did. If you don't like showering or going to the toilet in front of someone don't stay in this room. We did see one of the other apartments and it was much larger and lovely. Our hostess did offer to let us look elsewhere in the city for another apartment when we arrived, but we were tired, it was late, and she was charming and the rest of the b&b was very comfortable, so we stayed.
The owners had a nice balance of being nice and helpful, but not invasive. I felt as if I was at home. It was very relaxing and quiet. Having only 3 rooms is nice...there weren't too many people coming in and out so it was more private. They have a private courtyard in the back which was very pretty. I definitely recommend the hotel. The owners are very sweet people and very good hostesses. They didn't have central air but they had a fan. However, I found that none of the hotels I stayed in in Amboise, Saumur and Paris had central air so just be prepared.
friendly proprietor who took trouble to ensure we were comfortable, swimming pool to ourselves, very nice large room, good breakfast, convenient location It was quite pricey even allowing for unfavourable £:euro ratio
The location in the center of Amboise was ideal, the hotel was very comfortable and well appointed, bed linen was excellent - high level of attention to detail
Beautiful, large rooms with lovely furnishings. Comfortable bed with very nice linens. Large bathroom with updated fixtures like double sinks, separate bathtub and shower.
T ,he room was huge and the atmosphere was lovely. The restaurant is one of the best we have ever eaten at. You can walk from the hotel to a lot of places (Chateau, weekly market, Loire River, restaurants) Everyone there was very friendly. Nice grounds Although there is wireless there is not a computer available if you do not have your own. This made communication home difficult
Staff could not do enough and cuisine great although as only a set menu perhaps not everyones 1st choice but will definitely be returning in the future Having to leave
The location was excellent, easy walking to the chateau, restaurants, shopping. Staff were very helpful and attentive, nice grounds to enjoy a glass of wine, The room was very comfortable and clean.
Location, location, location, with views of the Amboise Chateau and easy walking distance from the town Le Manoir Saint Thomas is perfectly located. There is safe parking in the grounds. The staff are delightful and the rooms nice. Bit pricey, but if you are happy to pay you will have a very nice stay.
Beautiful hotel very convenient to centre of Amboise. Style is of restored chateau so don't expect ultra modern facilities, but it fits in perfectly with the ambience of the Loire Valley. Residents' lounge delightful with free wifi. Staff very helpful. Breakfast OK. 170 Euro is perhaps a little overpriced and we have stayed in equally high standard accommodation in Amboise for a bit less. However, this is a minor complaint and we would certainly consider staying there again.
We loved Le Manoir St. Thomas and would definitely recommend it to friends. It was lovely, the staff was wonderful and the location was great.
Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Accomodations were very comfortable and clean. Amenities were second to none.
Had a great room up top, overlooking the garden, comfortable and good bathroom all in a house built in the twelfth century. There was also a nice sitting room downstairs with open fireplace. The service was great, enthusiastic and helpful which added to our experience.
Very helpful people - I arrived very late due to flight delays and instructions were very provided for me very clearly.
The welcome, the staff, the tranquility so close to the heart of the town, the elegance of the building
The manor is historic and very charming, but also has modern touches to make it comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was simple, but lovely.
The building and grounds are simply lovely. Our room was incredibly spacious, comfortable and well appointed with a large and luxurious bathroom. The desk workers were helpful, cordial, knowedgeable and spoke English fluently. We liked Alla in paricular, as she is simply charming. We had hoped to have dinner in their highly-recommended restaurant, but after September 30th it was no longer open.
Our studio looked like it was newly built, and was very nicely renovated with tasteful furnishings. It was very close to the main attractions in the town. There was nothing we didn't like.
Excellent welcome from helpful owner. Lovely location and facilities. Difficult to find
Had a kitchen area that was nicely equipped. Bed was comfortable.
We had a studio apartment and it was great. Excellent to have a fridge and a few utensils. Staff are excellent and the whole experience was wonderful. Benoit did a great job of the food so make sure to try out their new restaurant, L'Alliance in Amboise. Bed was lumpy and the pillows were really bad - flat as a pancake! Despite that it really is a wonderful hotel in a great location and would stay there again!
Rooms are in fact small apartments, allowing you enjoy more freely of your vacations. Location is quite good, at walking distance from the centre.
Situation, kitchen, parking, price for three person not a major building
The staff was very helpful and pleasant. It's a great location at a low rate. It's no frills, but has good basic amenities including free wireless internet (note that it is not encrypted if this is important to you). Definitely a "good buy" for its location in central Amboise near the Chateau.
Very helpful person on the reception when we arrived. Close to centre of town. Good value for money for a one night stay. Having to park the car some distance away and not being sure how safe it would be left there over night.
Friendly and helpfull staff. Good breakfast. Great location. No-parking space.There wasn´t a lift although it wasn´t a problem for us
central position and helpful staff pretty basic!
visiting Chenonceau chateau parking was not easy
Very good location. The girl at reception is very helpful - deal with her if you can (as per other comments). Compact basic rooms. Good for exploring Amboise. The free parking is about 300 metres away and if it's full then too bad. To access wifi you have to agree to some 'anti terrorism' conditions (you agree that your internet can be monitored) and then the net times-out after 1 hour.
Location Only 2 power points in the room
The location of value for money of this hotel are unbeatable. The bathroom was a bit cold as there was no heater in the bathroom.
Great Location. Right in the middle of Amboise. Only one power point in the whole room (including bathroom), and the TV was plugged into that single point. Makes it difficult to use the internet, dry your hair, charge your batteries. Paid parking in the street.
Friendly welcome, clean facilities, good service, proximity to points of interest; wifi connection that actually works, willingness to help with little problems Could be a problem for older travellers carrying bags up and down stairs as there is no lift but I am sure that staff would provide assistance if required.
Room was very good. Location was perfect. We found the dinner selection and price to not be up to our expectations. We ended up going into Amboise and finding very nice dinner places with friendlier staff and better value
Very relaxing location, in the heart of the Loire valley Internet does not work in the room because of the trees!!!
It's a long way out of the town of Amboise, so you need a car which I didn't have.
The dinner was excellent, and well served. The site and surroundings were lovely. There was no ac available in our room. In spite of what the proprietress said, we definitely needed it . Our wireless computer would not work in the room. Only 2 bath towels were provided for both room and pool. Fruit salad at breakfast was from a can.
the place very nice and quite wonderful. restaurant fantastic the w.c. outside the bath. no bidet . Stairs dangereus. Pool very very little. breakfast a little poor
Hospitality of the staff Bad work of the shower
perfect and comfortable room. within walking distance to city center. free parking just in front of the hotel.
The welcome was very friendly and the location was perfect. We also loved their dog, Timmy - who was not by the way, allowed in the hotel itself. Parking was advertised as "On site", this is not correct - the only parking was in the road.
Very helpful staff. Cozy. Beds not so comfy.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is a short distance from the town centre.
Very warm welcome from the owner who took the time to tell us about the city as it was our first visit. Very good breakfast.
location was good, the city and countryside great. the resturant was impressive--dinner was expensive but worth it and the service was very good. the breakfast was also very good. our room was in the old part of the hotel and was just ok. it needs to be updated. the walls between rooms are not very insulated for noise and made for a long night.
The location was sublime as we could see Amboise Castle from our room and could walk to many little shops and restaurants in the town of Amboise, including Leonardo DaVinci's home and final resting place at the Castle.
Great staff. Perfect location for visiting chateaus in Loire Valley (1/2 hour or less to Chenonceau, Chambord, Chiverny). Right next to Amboise Chateau. Wonderful restaurant. No elevator, though desk attendant insisted on carrying all luggage up several flights of stairs when we checked in.
Size of room No outward views
well appointed rooms restaurant v. expensive
the location and the views from our room the restaurant was very expensive
Lovely room overlooking the river. Bags carried by reception. Prepared wine beautifully for social occasion. Dressing gowns and slippers great for relaxing and comfort. Pleasant staff. Cuisine superb. One reception staff outstanding for help and friendly approach. Bed very comfortable. One reception staff was rather aloof and business like. I felt I would have been treated in a more friendly manner if I had driven up in an expensive car. Need option of vegetables with meals....bunch of rocket for $7 bit steep even if the dressing was excellent.
Room was extremely quiet and comfortable; staff was very professional and helpful; convenient walk to town; The food in restaurant was excellent quality but very expensive.
first impression of room not that great after Les Artes however beds, bathroom and size was very good. The 36 restaurant was incredible. The only thing was the hairdryer needs to be upgraded.
Having a pool to cool off in and relax made the stay at this hotel enjoyable For what was on offer at breakfast we found poor in comparison to other hotels we stayed in and expensive at 10 euros per head.
- very clean, newly refurbished room - quiet, private park and garage - did'nt see facilities e.g. sauna as advertise - rather pricey for size of room
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was a particularly charming place and next time I shall definitely request Room 6 I found that everything met, or exceeded, my expectation
Hotel de charme Extralarge bed not very comfortable. Relatively small breakfast room (for the size of the hotel).
The room is well appointed. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast is great.
The grounds were very picturesque and the staff were very helpful. It seemed like an ideal place to stay a few days to relax and soak in Amboise Our room did not afford much privacy as it faced on to the driveway and entrance.
lovely place. would stay there again.
It is beautiful hotel...more like a B&B in terms of its charm, comfort, and peace and quiet. It has a wonderful garden area. There is also off-street parking protected behind locked gates at night. The staff was very welcoming and helpful in providing tourist advice. The Hotel is very close to shopping and tourist attractions including the historic châteaux. Couldn't recommend it more. There was nothing we didn't like about this hotel.
This is a truly charming hotel with staff who were friendly and helpful at all times.It was a great base for touring the Chateaux Nothing
It is a beautiful place to stay. I would go there again for sure. The soap smelled funny - for real.
room comfort, quiet, access late at night without problem, friendly staff all rooms are no smoking. I like my freedom to do what I like in my own private hotel room
Very comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, helpful staff, quiet location
Clean, fresh hotel in excellent location.
Reception staff were very helpful and friendly, room extremely comfortable, clean and well designed Overpriced breakfast - said to be American, but only hot food was sausages and they had run out of scambled egg.
pleasant staff too far out of town with no bar or restuarant facilities, just like a travel lodge. 25 minute walk into town
The management was very helpful to us in finding fuel for our car during a time when there was a problem obtaining it. We booked a room for three people even though there was on only two of us. It was just right.
room good wasnt as close to centre but easy 20min walk
Very pleasant and clean hotel. Reception staff offered without prompting to store our bikes in their garage.
The location (Amboise) no
Most enjoyable stay, staff were pleasant and accomodating, secure parking a definate plus... wifi another plus. Would definitely stay again. Would have been nice if located closer to restaurants and shops.
The food and bar operations were poorly run with a very disappointing product
Beautiful setting no
The chlidren liked the pool, the rooms were clean and comfrotable
clean and very friendly , helpful staff
the room was nice.
Air conditioning in room - wifi in room - trolley for luggage
Nice clean modern hotel Cost of drinks very dear in comparison to Ireland
The hotel staff were awesome, the breakfast was good, and the room was roomy, clean, and comfortable. The location is about a 20 minute walk (mostly uphill) from town and taxis are scarce or nonexistent.
Very comfortable bed, excellent sofa bed for children, buffet breakfast, pool and mini golf. Location also very good - walking distance to Amboise centre
Very familiar. Very well equiped. Staff very friendly. Very good breakfeast.
A bit off center with a nice view of the Amboise castle. Very friendly and helpful staff. We spent one week there and enjoyed the region and hotel so much that we'll return next year. The swimming pool should be heated up
Views and proximity to Amboise. Helpful staff None
The hotel location is good and staff are so kind and friendly. The room is excellent atmosphore. No restaurant for dinner. Breakfast is a bit expensive, 12 Euro, but basic.
clean room with plenty of room and strong , consistent internet access
Beautifully maintained, comfortable and welcoming. Impressive location next to the castle and on the banks of the river. We will certainly return to spend more time with you and will also recommend you to our friends.
everything a very relaxing break, hope to return, accommodation is fantastic, very friendly helpful staff we did not dislike anything but a restaurant would be nice.
Fabulous location, great views, wonderful staff
The reception was excellent and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. The gentleman who showed us to the room explained everything to us and made a dinner reservation at a very nice restaurant. We also liked the parking facilities with the gates being locked overnight. Breakfast was also very good. It was difficult to spot the entrance when arriving from the east and we had trouble getting back round to it. A good restaurant for dinner in the hotel would have been an added bonus.
location ,style hotel should have dinner
our room and view were wonderful, so was the location the front desk attendant was a bit stuffy...but eventually warmed up.
The room was absolutely fantastic (spacious, clean, confortable, quiet, etc.). The service was also amazing and the hotel delivers what it promisses. I strong recomend this hotel. The reception speaks a very good English and is ready to help the guests anytime. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed. Everything was perfect
The staff are very nice and helpful. The room we had is way too small, especially for a 4-star hotel. The breakfast is very poor (you hardly have anything to choose from) and is not worth 12 euros at all.
Hotel Bellevue was beautiful and in the perfect location! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean, modern, and had all the amenities needed. The hotel was beyond our expectations and we would highly recommend it.
Location is perfect. Wifi didn't work in our room and was very unreliable in common areas. Room was small, we had no telephone or television. There is no closet or drawers. No eating or drinking anything in your room, management strictly abides by this rule.
Very friendly reception, the food was excellent and quite reasonably priced. Important for us dogs welcome..
We appreciated the promptitude of the staff in helping to solve clients’ small problems (telephone calls, car parking, etc.). We have nothing wrong to say about our stay.
Helpful front desk; basic but comfortable room; value for money
It was a cute room, very clean. The view out of my room was pretty. I like that they had a restaurant on site. They did not have central air or fans in the room. The lady offered to give me a fan which was nice, but I think they should be standard in all the rooms as it gets hot in August.
The manager made us very welcome, and was very friendly. We could park our motorbikes in the hotel private garage. The gardens were really nice, and private. The bedroom decoration needs some attention.
The hotel staff was very helpful and the breakfast was very nice.
The restaurant was excellent and the service discreet and attentive. Our hostess and host were gracious and cheerful and helpful. No complaints at all.
The accomodations were excellent. Our room was large and nicely decorated. The plated meal was exceptional. We were close to a wonderful bakery and not far to walk to town to visit the chateau and to go shopping.
Quiet away from centre. Friendly staff. Convenient to local attractions. Erratic hot water supply. Furnishings more 'tired' than character features.
personal attention by the staff
