We loved Chateau de Pray

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!

Chateau Du Pray was a lovely place to stay. From the wonderful attendants to the room quality and decor, the three nights I stayed with a friend were fantastic. I look forward to returning.

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.

Chateau de Pray nicely balances the historical nature of the property with a high standard of guest amenities in the rooms, common areas and pool. I'll remember the brand in my future travels.

Wonderful hotel in the heart of Loire valley
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.

Chateaux de Praise !
4.3
The hotel was beautiful and the location ideal for visiting the chateaus of the region. The evening restaurant was excellent and the staff were very helpful especially as our car had broken down and we needed extra help with further arrangements. We would like to stay again next time we revisit the area.

The setting, decor, room and bedding lovely, but air of exclusiveness from staff less than welcoming. We felt captive with reception saying we had to cab to town for dinner when restaurant was closed, when in fact there was a very nice restaurant just down the street w compatible quality and price much more reasonable. The breakfast at Chateau for $17E was paltry. Dinner nice but desert at 18E was not impressive. the only thing about dinner that was noteworthy was the high price and slow pace.
