TravelPod Member ReviewsLe Choiseul Amboise
Staff - very friendly.
Location - 5 mins walk from the city center. Other towns/castles are easily accessible by car.
Rooms - large, beautifully decorated in Renaissance style with either a garden or river view. This is the main reason to chose this hotel in my opinion.
Restaurant - very "interesting". The French guests seemed to enjoy their meals very much. I had a little difficulty eating the "rabbit stomach cooked in its own skin" (or something along those lines). But the deserts were excellent and they provided some gratis surprises, which made things extra fun. I didn't leave hungry!

Before entering the pool there were two new routines to note. The French put all of their belongings in a little plastic tray and hanger (for your clothing). It was collected like a coat valise system. I did like like the idea of walking through a shallow water bath to clean your feet before any entrance to the pool area. What a good idea. As Rob mentioned previously, we befriended the bilingual "pool ambassador". He told us that the foot baths ...
We cooked breakfast in and headed over the bridge to town. Shopped for lunch and pastry. Decided to visit the chateau in Amboise of King Charles the VIII. It was lovely with great views and gardens. Then back to the apartment for lunch.
Next we headed to town for a van pick up to go out 2 chateaux of the Loire Valley. We chose Chambord as it is ...
