Château de Pray
A charming place in Loire Valley!
4.1
In the beginning of my visit, my husband and I weren't feeling well. The gentleman at reception arranged to have soup sent to our room and could not have been nicer. The room was very nicely appointed, although not large, and our bathroom updated (the toilet was in a former closet, but not a problem other than you had to walk into another room to wash your hands). Overall, a wonderful place to stay!

Beautiful, comfortable, luxurious hotel. Convenient for visiting Chateaux in the area. Restaurant had the best food, wine and service I've ever had. And my wife got to live the fantasy of living in a chateau.

Delightful stay. We chose the Chateau de Pray as the anchor location for two days of bike touring the Loire Valley and it was a great central location for that purpose. Our room was charming, in one of the turrets. Breakfast is a bargain, with cooked eggs and breakfast meets as well as a wide variety of breads and cheeses. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant was spectacular. While not a downside for us, the location is a bit outside of the town center, not really walkable into Amboise. Staff was always friendly and accommodating..

We absolutely adored the Chateau De Pray. Was one of the highlights of our European trip. The room, the grounds, location, staff and restaurant were "formidable." Our only complaint was that we were only in Amboise for two nights. Would have loved to have stayed there for a week!

A beautiful and well run place. The dinner was exquisite. Three complaints; There was a strange odor in the room that wouldn't go away. The staff told us to leave the window open but it was too cold to do that. They charged us for breakfast both mornings that we didn't have. They did the same with our friends. They put us on a different floor from our friends even though we booked 9 months in advance.

Pittoresque château avec un personnel rafiné et attentionné. Tres Bien situé dans un endroit calme et facile d'accès. Tres propre. Jérome, le directeur de l'hôtel, a su dépasser nos attentes. Idéal pour visiter la region de la Loire.

4.8
A wonderful hotel in a location ideal for exploring the Loire Valley. Very friendly and helpful staff, great rooms, overall comfort well above what we expected to find in an authenticallly old, historic building. Great restaurant, deservedly rated high on the web. I suggest to make a stronger and more explicit mention that the restaurant is closed on Monday and Tuesday, and there is NO food available at the hotel on these days after breakfast (we knew that the hotel needed reservations, but not that it was closed for two nights). Of course, Amboise is only 5 minutes away, so this is not a problem if you have a car.
