"Great Stay, Friendly Staff, Comfortable Beds"
Upon arrival I was immediately welcomed by the desk staff. Room was perfect for an overnight stay, and would have been for longer. The twin bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. The hotel stored my bags for the day which made it easy for me to navigate the town and sites. I would highly recommend the hotel when staying in Ambois.
"Great hotel "
Very impressed with this small hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was spotless and the breakfast offered a great choice. There is an area with comfortable chairs to read or enjoy a drink.
"A most welcoming staff and excellent facility"
It all began when I arrived at the hotel much earlier than planned, fully wet and dirty as the result of a closed road experience. You see...I travel by bicycle ! My first encounter was one of full understanding and cooperation with taking in my dirty bicycle, throwing me a clean towel to wipe myself and showing me to my room earlier than intended. Marie was the ultimate host. I did not immediatel figure out how to thank her and the rest of the staff. Thank you Marie and enjoy your chocolates. Minas Vassiliadis CANADA
"Good value for $$. Kettle and tissues very appreciated."
Warm welcome and quick explanation of the hotel was much appreciated. This is not a multi-star accomodation but it did provide kettle and tissues....something often missing. All was good until the upstairs flushed. Then it sounded like a torrent....to the point where I got up to check the floor was still dry. A bit disconcerting.
"Kind and helpful reception. Great location! "
The room was clean and nice. 5mins to shopping area and restaurants. Great recommendations by the front desk on places to go and eat. Highly recommended!
Staff were very helpful ... took bags upstairs ... ordered taxi ... gave advice on town etc etc. Room clean, comfortable beds ... a nice stay. Thanks!
"Great Value & Location!"
I was on a bike trip and booked several rooms at the hotel. My friend and I were very pleased with the locations, the rooms, and the value. Plus, they offer a secure "stable" for your bikes which you will not find at every hotel. In addition, the AC worked very well which was welcome as I visited during a heat wave in August. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was peaceful. I would return!
"A wonderful experience "
The staff are wonderful - friendly, professional and really helpful.
"Pleasant stay in Amboise "
The hotel and room was clean and therefore met the most important of our requirements. The bed was very hard though and therefore not the most comfortable. Receptionists were welcoming and very friendly.
