I booked very last minute at popular time so could find nowhere in Amboise. I stumbled on this from old Frommer's Guide.It is situated in the countryside requiring a delightful drive on single lane roads through fields - just do NOT do this for first time at night or follow google maps.It is close to freeway so good base. I arrived at 1030pm so no one to meet me; this was frustrating as map to room incorrect and method to lock the room doors is very strange, luckily I had just stayed somewhere else with same or I would not have been able to lock my door that night. So I wasnt very happy when i went to bed the first night. However, I had booked one of the Garden double rooms with their own little courtyard, waking up and looking out onto the serenity was wonderful, and the stay turned around. The service is wonderful. The rooms are decorated in an old traditional style but are spacious, dont feel musty and decor matches - this was about as quaint/countryside as I can tolerate! I was very glad the bathrooms were modern and clean. I didn't eat breakfast there so cannot comment. I dont think there was airconditioning or an ability to leave a window open, but there was a fan in the room. Disappointingly, there is no fridge for drinks nor any tea/coffee facilities in the room. Supposedly you can get them to bring a coffee to your room, I didnt try this out. The actual telephone mobile reception in this area is poor - my phone couldnt pick up a signal! Wifi was ok though.
