... per couple, which was pretty good. It was fairly simple but neat and clean. However we again had to heave our luggage up to the top floor, as they didn’t have any lifts!! At least the stairs were wider here!

Eli and I finished the night watching the soccer match between Argentina and Netherlands! At half time we walked over the bridge to get some dinner as the hotel restaurant was closed. It was really pretty with the lights from the buildings and the reflections on the ...

More Chateaux

... Then it was a quick hop down the road to our last chateau, the Chateau de Chambord. What an amazing building. For sheer full-blown architectural splendour, you can't top this. It is by far the largest, grandest and most-visited chateau in the Loire Valley. Begun in 1519 as a weekend hunting lodge for King Francois 1, it quickly snowballed into one of the most ambitious and expensive architectural projects ever attempted by a French monarch. By the time it was finally finished around ...

... and had lots of fun. In the cave we ate bread, salad, and some mystery meats. Once we finished eating dinner we went back to the hotel where we sat and hung out for a little while before we went to the grocery store. At the grocery store we looked for snacks, drinks and anything else need for the trip. After everyone got the things they need we went back to the hotel and went to ...

... to figure out what was going on and if we were alright. Surprisingly, we enjoyed being stuck at the airport for so long. We had food, water, wifi, but most importantly, one another. It was just another mountain we had to climb, another mountain that prepared us for future challenges that may lie ahead. The thirty hour travel day finally brought us home on June 5th at around 11pm, and together we said hello to our homes.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Le Clos d'Amboise

    Very disappointed--be sure to confirm the details!

    from

    Our family stayed here 3 nights in June 2006, hoping to stay in a nice room in a beautiful old building overlooking the garden. (The website description would imply this, yes?) Instead, we stayed in an annex overlooking the driveway and parking lot. We could see neither the garden nor the main building from our room. Our room was over the exercise room (with early morning noise from those choosing to work out). The kids slept on an uncomfortable sleeper sofa and a more uncomfortable roll away. (We knew they'd be in these, but they were the most uncomfortable of the trip). We did not partake of the breakfast at 10 euros per person, but found nice alternatives within easy walking distance.

    So, be warned--make sure you confirm that you are in the main building (or at least in the first annex, overlooking the garden). I would not recommend this hotel for families with children in the same room, the extra beds were too uncomfortable.

    The room itself was okay (clean and fairly large, with nice bathroom) but could have been anywhere. I asked whether anything else was available in the main building (I had made the reservation months in advance) was told only for the last night, and only if our teenagers could share a bed (not an option).

    Excellent, comfortable, central - ideal for a Loire tour

    from

    The Clos is highly recommended from this satisfied traveller. We stayed for two nights while travelling through France and took the ground floor suite. It's a beautiful, spacious, high-ceiling room with panelling, a hall and good bathroom. The staff are charming and helpful, the gardens very pretty and peaceful (calling them a park is more marketing than actual), breakfast is fine though the room is a little small when busy.

    A couple of things they might do better: more towels in the bathrooms, and ask the cleaners to leave things where guests have placed them - I left my laptop and a chair in the only place I could access the WiFi to find them moved each day.

    Best Stay Ever

    from

    We stayed here for six nights. Were very pleased of that charming stylish hotel. Great location - quiet place in the heart of Old City. Free parking inside the property (enough for 8-10 cars, never had problems with the spot for our Peugeot Partner).

    The owner - Jean-Marc was very thoughtful, always willing to help, as well as his assistant - Patricia. Rooms are clean and comfortable, bathroom - better than in 4-stars hotel.

    We also had breakfast (we found the price of 10 Euros very reasonable for excellent buffet we got).

    No doubt, will stay again.

    Wonderful place to stay and enjoy Amboise!

    from

    We stayed here at the end of our holiday for 2 nights. The hotel is wonderful, we stayed on the top floor overlooking the beautiful garden with the town of Amboise in the distance. The bathroom was clean with a great shower. The room itself, although small in size, I found it to be exceptional in comfort. We had breakfast in the local cafe's, not at the hotel. Lovely place to stay and we will return! The only downside was the car spaces...these were very small and difficult to get in and out of.

    Very pretty and charming, good value

    from

    Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was lovely with lots of pretty touches everywhere in the room. Not all of them speak English though.

    Location was great, central enough to walk to the main areas of interest yet quiet.

    Small heated pool, great for swimming in the summer!

    Nice hotel, but don't be misled by the description

    from

    Certainly has an air of decadence at an affordable place. It is comfortable and clean, and a pretty setting. However, the website is a little misleading in its description. For example the park is in fact a garden; service was stand-offish but polite, rather than friendly. And returning home to check the website, we realised that we were correct when we had said to the hotel reception that our booking of a comfort room should overlook the garden and not the road. Unfortunately they did not allow us to stay in a room facing the garden... consequently, the options are to try to sleep with the window open and hear the traffic right outside, or have the windows closed and either have the noisy air-conditioning on or sleep in an airless room. Despite this it is a characterful hotel.

    An excellent value

    from

    We recently stayed here for two nights. Superb location in the middle of town, and esp great if you've got a car. A great value considerting the quality of the hotel

    The breakfast at 9.5 Euros was more expensive than other hotels we stayed but had the best breakfast in terms of selection by far.

    The staff was very helpful and friendly.

    We highly recommend this hotel

    Fantastic Hotel in Great Location

    from

    We stayed at the Clos D'Amboise for two nights in July 2005. Excellent location near the centre of town, fabulous garden with pool, very comfortable bedrooms, delicious breakfasts, very friendly staff and terrific value for money.

    A breath of fresh air from other hotels in Amoise

    from

    This hotel was just wonderful! The hotel is a very quiet and on a quiet back street which is so important for a good nights rest. The room we stayed in above the garage was large and very comfortable. The grounds are lovely and very well taken care of. Their is a small in ground pool in the back which is very unusual in europe. The owners are very nice and try very hard to make your stay enjoyable. I only wish we would have spent more time their. Make your reservations in advance

    Beautiful place; great value

    from

    We spent 4 perfect nights at Le Clos d'Amboise in a large and beautiful room for only 109 euro per night. The hotel is on a quiet street, close to the center of town, with a lovely private garden and pool. The only thing the Clos lacks is views of the river, but for us this was not worth paying almost twice as much. If we had wanted a smaller room, we could have had one for well under 100 euro.

    The pavillion does not have views on to the garden, as you would get in the main building, where the rooms are slightly more expensive. We were traveling with another couple, and had the only two rooms on the second floor (European 1st floor) of the pavillion, so it was like having our own suite, with complete privacy,

    Our room had a sitting area and a large, comfortable bed, and was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was also quite large, and we liked the special touch of the "green tea" soap and shampoo.

    For 5 euro extra per night, you can also get high-speed Internet access in your room. However, the description on their web site of "wifi" is not accurate. The net access is via a wired Ethernet connection. If you request it, they will give you a cable to plug in to your computer.

    Breakfast is available for an additional 9.50 E per person, but we opted to go into town and eat more cheaply at one of the many delectable pastry shops just a few blocks away.

    We enjoyed having wine and cheese on the terrace in the evenings, and one night also took out pizza from the little pizzeria right across the street. The staff was quite pleasant, although we did not have a lot of interaction with them, since we were not in the main building.

    All in all, this hotel was a great value, and I would highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Loire Valley.
