A beautiful place in a very central setting for exploring the Loire Valley and it's charming chateaux. Large incredibly quiet rooms, even on the main road, great bathrooms, and friendly helpful multilingual staff. The gardens are spacious and very French, the pool welcome after a hard day touring, and it is just a short walk from the centre of the...

We stayed 3 nights at this lovely character hotel. The hotel is in an excellent location as we could walk to all the shops and restaurants. Our room was overlooking the garden and we could see the Loire River from the hallway behind. The wallpaper, bed linen, lamp shades all the same floral material and very "French" and what you...

We stayed at the Le Choiseul on June 1, 2012. We were early and understandably our room was not ready. The property is very charming and consists of 3 buildings. It is located literally at the foot of the Chateau Amboise. The receptionists were friendly and helpful especially Marie Pierre who spoke good English. We left our luggages behind and...

A jewel of a hotel on the banks of the Loire. Friendly competent staff. Historic rooms and luxurious furnishings in an intimate setting. Excellent food. The breakfast is five star, as is the hotel dining room which looks out on the Loire. Try the local wines as recommended by the friendly maitre d'. We loved our stay, our windows faced...

First of all, this property is not a chateau but a big house by Loire river with perfect location, 5 min walk to Amboise castle and town. The first minute stepping into the property, we were treated with excellent service just like we were guests of this house. The place is cute with unique setting, nice garden and some caves...

On first view, this hotel is charming and appears to merit it's 4 stars. By dinner I was questioning that rating - yes, it has a pool (unheated from what I could tell, yes the restaurant is very good, yes, the location is good, but that's where it ends. My husband and I are staying in the second level of...

The hotel has very good location, within walking distance form the sights in lovely Amboise. Our room was nice, clean and quite spacious with a very comfortable bed.

This hotel was one of the high points of our trip. The location is within walking distance to all attractions in Amboise (itself a very pretty town). Car parking is both spacious and plentiful.

Stayed here for 3 nights with a 3 for 2 price deal which made it seem inexpensive. However even for the reduced price deal it still seemed very overpriced for what you get.

Amboise is a beautiful town! I would definitely go back, but most likely not to this hotel. It's in a good location and we had a few nights of great sleep, the main thing that lets this hotel down is the service. The rooms could use some re-styling too. I am glad my husband and i got a discounted rate,...
