One of the best restaurants on the Loire Valley, impressive dishes, especially the fowl, and the deserts, the cheeses and wines selection was outstanding, as well (but one would expect that from a Michellin starred restaurant on the Loire Valley). They also have a set menu for 70 euros per person, that makes it afordable for the everyday guests.

we stayed in a superior room, which had a really comfy bed and was well appointed. The chateau itself is lovely with great gardens and some beautiful original features. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it looked great and was full each night. We looked at other rooms before leaving and all were super. The breakfast was very good....

The staffs were very sweet, friendly and helpful, including the cleaning crew. My room was lovely in pink, overlooking the garden on the top floor as I previously requested. The bedroom has an old castle feel and the bathroom is updated to the modern standard. Amboise is a small town. I didn't do research or book a car (since I...

This was a magnificent experience. The chateau is slightly outside Amboise and is very quiet, wonderful gardens allowing for walking or a chat with the chateau cat, which seems to be at least bilingual. The restaurant is superb and the restaurant staff were great. Wonderful to be visiting as a solo traveler and to be welcomed. Loved the Sancerre and...

The beauty of traveling in France in the spring is that you often are one of just a handful of guests, which made us feel like we were truly living at the castle. Our room was so spacious, and the chateau's thick walls led to an arched window that looked out on the gorgeous lawn and territorial views. Spectacular. The...

Property was exactly as described. We wanted romantic old world charm with exquisite cuisine - and that's what we enjoyed for 4 nights. We had a small room in the turret (by choice) with a perfect view of the manicured gardens and the Loire Valley. The restaurant/chef carries a Michelin star and deserves the recognition. Food was superb and the...

We had booked a superior room for two nights. The room we were given was approached by a steep staircase and was small and lacked easy chairs and adequate reading lights. The public rooms in the hotel comprised a restaurant, 'tea room' with tables and upright chairs and breakfast room, but nowhere to sit comfortably and read. Since it was...

We knew from the start that staying in the chateau would not be cheap but did expect a good level of service. Have to say that the service - particularly at the bar/restaurant - was appalling. We had to wait a long time to be served and when we were eventually served, the waitress acted as if she was doing...

Just returned from Chateau de Pray, a wonderful experience in the Loire Valley. Located 1 mile driving from the quintessential French town of Amboise- on beautifully manicured grounds, this little slice of paradise was top notch! Offered elegant and comfortable accommodations, gorgeous views of the Loire Valley and excellent personalized service. Not to mention, the Chateau dates back to the...
