We stayed at this hotel for an impromptu weekend in the Loire Valley and had a very pleasant experience. My children loved the pool and the suite that was reserved suited our family perfectly. The staff was friendly and the property was very nice and very close to town. We will go here again!

Actually I'm writting a late review. Me and my wife, we 've been there in november 2008. It was low season, we went to Amboise because it's a good base to the Loire Valley, and almost all hotels in the town were closed. Le Clos d'Amboise was one of the few good rated hotels that was available. The staff were great. The rooms were large for the european patterns. The hotel is located in the centre of the town, walking distance from the Castle and to the Rue Nationale (pedestrian central street with lots of souvenir shops). A good base to explore the Loire Valley.

We drove from Paris to Amboise to bicycle ride and see the Chateaus in the Loire Valley.
Le Clos d'Amboise was a very pleasant surprise. There is nothing extravagant about Le Clos but it was a refreshingly clean, newly refurbished, and quiet French country motel. The owner was always present and very friendly and helpful. We appreciated the free wifi and flat screen TV and enjoyed the quiet, quaint location. The town of Amboise was a great central location, but you definitely need a car to see everything in the Loire Valley- due to inclement weather in July we were only able to cycle 1 of 3 days we were there.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 10

We recently booked accomodation at Le Clos d'Amboise using their online reservation system for 3 people (husband and wife and 11 year old son). The room we booked was a comfort superior room that specifically allowed 3 people and at the time of booking we also reserved an extra bed.

Per the hotel's website, a comfort superior room is a "hight standard very large bedroom with corner lounge, personalised decoration -lounge and bedroom 35 m2". The room has "(1 single bed, 1 double bed) - 3 people maximum".

Unfortunately, we received an email yesterday that the only room they had available was for two people. The most frustrating element was we were left to cancel our reservation versus the hotel offering to do this for us since they told us we could not stay at their hotel on the nights we wished to stay.

Room Tip: Do not book online - call the hotel directly.

Dear M. Brine,
We would to thank you for your demand and booking through our website. We had sorry to inform you that our last superior room can not welcome 3 people.
We know that Amboise city is very crowded in summer time. We just inform you that we will not be able to accomodate you in good condition.
Otherwise, this booking problem could be arrange directly by mail or by phone, you prefer to post an advise on Tripadvisor. Actually Tripadvisor is made to receive clients advise after their stay not prior. We understood that you can be disapointed but you have to know also that your advise is very bad for our business image. We used to do our best everyday to welcome our guest in the best condition possible.
Thank you.
Sincerely yours,
Guillaume Jouvin

$55 euros (approximately $80 US) for one week's worth of laundry for my wife and I. Really unhappy about what I see as a rip-off. But the grounds were very nice and a swimming pool in the middle of the city at a B&B seems really nice. The room furnishings are run-of-the-mill, certainly not what I'd expect in this price range. Overall, though, pretty nice place with very nice staff, though I suspect front desk (Oliver) padded the wash bill. For the extra money, stay just down the street at 13 rue Rabelais, le Vieux Manior run by Bob & Gloria Belknap.....absolutely fantastic B&B packed with antiques with a fabulous breakfast included. Truly world class accomodations that make le Clos de Ambois look sick in comparison.

Room Tip: Third floor has angled ceilings which would be very difficult for tall folks.
