Le Choiseul struck us a an hotel of contradictions. Located just a little too far from the centre of town, it has a great deal of character but for us a difficult access to and from our room to facilities and carriage of luggage. We thought that the decor was starting to "age" a little and could do with a...

Amboise is a wonderful base from which to explore the Touraine and the chateaux and this hotel is an excellent starting point. The grounds are beautiful and even post summer it looked and felt well maintained and quite beautiful. Our room was large and cleverly decorated in a rose patterned fabric both on the bed and the walls. It could...

We were really disappointed by our visit to Le Choiseul. We were looking forward to staying at the hotel - the pictures online were great and it sounded lovely. The hotel has what should be a great set up but it looks as if nothing had been updated. Our room clearly hadn't been cleaned in a very long time -...

From the first instance that you arrive you will be pleased.The property is so well manicured with the incredible sculptures and lovely gardens. Our room was perfect, decorated with the French renaissance decor from floor to ceiling and a neat view of the Amboise castle. The bathroom was large and clean with luxury robes and slippers for our comfort. I...

Just stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe room with a large terrace overlooing the garden. Lovely French style rooms. 5 mins walk to centre of town. The restaurant is worthy of a Michelin star. In fact we went to chateau de prays Michelin starred restaurant and thought food was better at le choiseul. Chateau de pray is a way...

Le Choiseul is a really lovely traditional French hotel. The location is fantastic, right on the edge of the Loire and within a 5 minute walk of the town centre. We stayed in a superior room which was spacious and beautifully decorated with a small terrace and a very nice bathroom. There is off street secure parking at no extra...

We enjoyed our stay at Le Choiseul especially for its location. We were in walking distance to the lovely town of Amboise and right on the Loire River. The hotel was also perfectly located in visiting the many nearby Chateaus. The hotel's grounds are lovely, wonderful pool area, our room was very nice also. My only complaint is when we...

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2010, and it was a great way to kick off our honeymoon. Great central location, could walk anywhere in town. Amboise is a pretty sleepy town (not much going on after about 11pm) so expect early nights in, and days filled with wine caves and chateaux tours. Secure car parking. Large room...

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at this beautifull Chateau. We could see The Loire from our room window. The pool is located in a very charming garden. Their restaurant, The 36, pricy, very refined , a 5 star must, for at least for 1 evening. In Paris, it would cost double. Excellent value.
