I wanted to make sure that I reviewed this spot of all of our stays. THe rooms were incredible, the staff were wondwerful. A 500 year old "B&B" with all of the modern amenities and a staff like a 4 star hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Manoir Saint Thomas Amboise
Fantastic boutique hotel highly recommended. Very central location in Amboise and excellent base for the Loire.
We stayed in a large room with excellent large modern bathroom on the Ground floor which was gorgeously decorated with superb facilities. More of a couples/romantic venue than a family type place.
On-site parking is an added bonus and the staff were very friendly and efficient.
We stayed in some nice places around France and in Paris but this was tops.
Enjoyed Le Manoir
Wonderful hotel in the Loire Valley in France. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained. The atmosphere is quiet. There is a pool on the grounds that is kept up during the summer months. The hotel is located within walking distance of the downtown of Amboise.
We stayed at the Manoir Saint Thomas two nights in July 2005 and found it absolutely perfect for our needs - situated a short walk from the main street and restaurants, but itself set on a quiet square; nicely decorated and furnished in period style, without being fussy; good size bathroom; flat screen tv in bedroom; staff who were friendly and attentive but never overwhelming; good breakfast; small but perfectly adequate pool; parking within the grounds. Our stay there was relaxed and comfortable - not a bargain but good value. Would very happily return to Amboise and the Manoir Saint Thomas again.
A Peaceful Hideaway
We stayed here whilst my wife was pregnant on our last 'freetime' holiday and had a wonderful time. The grounds are just large enough to sit in and relax, the location is ideal for walking into the restaurents in the evening (no worries about drinking and driving), the decor is superb and rooms were well apportioned. Swifts wheeling by in the evening sky just add the finishing touches.
The owners have obviously put their heart and soul into creating a place you want to return to, and we certainly will when we can!
I stayed here in June with my 2 teenage children. It was the nicest hotel we stayed in during our 2 week trip to Europe. It is a little more than a mile from the train station. It is an old quaint hotel in the center of town, 3 blocks from the principal street and the Chateau Amboise. Beautiful grounds and a historic building. I felt like I was in the country when out by the pool. Our triple room was large, so pretty, and we had a large and beautiful bathroom. Staff was terrific. There are many charming hotels in this old town, but I would certainly stay here again. Not an inexpensive hotel, but quaint and charming. My teenagers loved it.
The Best Hotel in Amboise - Stunning!!!
If Amboise is the Gem of the Loire (and it truly is) then Le Manoir Saint Thomas is the Gem of Amboise. This hotel is absolutely beautiful in every way and I cannot recommend it enough!
We have just returned from a trip to France and this was most definately the highlight of our holiday. The hotel has been beautifully restored and is a stunning place to stay. With beautiful bedrooms, luxurious bathrooms, delicious breakfasts and genuinely friendly & welcoming owners, this is a hotel not to miss out on!
Antonella recommended (and booked) a restaurant for us for dinner which was fanstastic and the best meal of our holiday.
The hotel is only a few minutes walk away from the Chateau and restaurants. It lies in a quiet lane within Amboise so relaxing by the pool provides the peacefulness you want on holiday.
One small thing to note - beware of the rug as you enter the building. It lies on a highly polished wooden floor and is not held down in any way - I slipped on it a couple of times - the last time I ended up crashing into the reception desk and injured my arm - DO NOT, however, let this put you off.
We're going back to stay as soon as we possibly can!
Fantastic hotel - a real find!
My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic 3 night stay at Le Manoir Saint Thomas. The hotel is excellently located right in the centre of Amboise (a 3 minute walk to the Chateau), but still manages to keep an air of peace and serenity.
It is apparent that the hotel has been beautifully and painstakingly refurbished - the room we had was very large and furnished very tastefully (painted wooden roof beams, real oak floors etc) and the spec was also very high end - double sinks in the bathroom, flat-screen TV etc.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful - they supplied us with three recommendations for dinner all of which were excellent, and were happy to help out with making reservations for us.
I cannot speak too highly of the Le Manoir Saint Thomas - my wife and I would completely recommend it.
Reccomended Luxury Hotel
This lovely historic hotel, once a Priory built in 1107, now restored to its former glory, is set in a peaceful walled garden in central Amboise and a few minutes walk from the Chateaux.
Super accomodation and breakfast all provided by most friendly, welcoming and efficient staff.
Secure parking is available in the hotel grounds which are locked at night.
Thoroughly reccommended--- We will certainly return to spend longer in this beautiful area, staying at this delightful hotel.
A super hotel. Very nice and so comfortable. such a welcome! We will come back again soon.
A really lovely historic small hotel
This is a really lovely historic small hotel. Antonella & Bertrand have restored and re-furbished the Manoir St Thomas in very good taste; it's beautifully furnished and decorated and the welcome is outstanding - it's like staying at a friend's house! We had an extremely comfortable room overlooking the garden and the bathroom was in a class of its own! We can thoroughly recommend this hotel, without reservation, and look forward to our next visit.

... decided to go for the bike ride regardless. With the bikes off loaded and the dogs trailer assembled and attached off we set, first setback, the cycle path access point was blocked due to roadworks, not to be put off we went up and over the flood barrier and continued on our ride. The cycle path was great and took us to the centre of Tours where we parked up and went for a stroll before ...

We return to the banks of the Loire River to the town of Rochecorbon to walk at the Troglodyte Hotel and take a short boat trip on the Loire. It is the longest "wild" river (i.e., no dams) in France. It is a tranquil and relaxing trip, but the winds ...

Blois was our first stop. It is a very big chateau right in the middle of the town, and is unusual because it is built in a number of different styles. The Duke of Orleans, who thought he was in line for the throne began a big classical extension into the original renaissance building, but stopped as soon as he was disinherited, so the chateau features a huge crack down 1 wall. Blois also featured an amazing external staircase. It ...
... town close to our apartment, Saint Aignan, and stilled the cobblestone streets, taking some photos of some of the local area (again check out some of the pictures). The shops and restaurants were all closed as is the norm on Sunday afternoon but we did stumble upon one open brasserie. Jerry had a beer and Kathy decided to try the local sparkling wine. Very relaxing finish to another gloriously sunny day in the Loire Valley.
