The Chateau de Pray is such a wonderful place. In the countryside but close to the village. The chateau itself was well maintained and well furnished in antiques. The staff was impeccable, especially Jerome. He's very attentive and polite. Thank you for an outstanding holiday!

Bien mais peu mieux faire

Bien: Très bien placé, personnel accueillant, restaurant très bon, bonne literie mais ... Moins: Deux lits collé pour faire un lit parental => trés décevant Chambre en dehors du château sans vraiment de charme. une invasion de fourmis et une système d'eau chaude inconnue du commun des mortel ( a gauche l'eau chaude, a droite l'eau froide et tourner pour plus de pression, d'accord mais l'eau tiède ??) Manque d'entretien flagrant de la piscine ( sale à l’intérieur et chemin d'accès plein de ronce et de branche coupées)

Quality and elegance with a fine restaurant
4.2
We enjoyed our stay in Chateau de Pray very much although the weather was largely cold and wet which is a surprise for June. The restaurant was outstanding and we felt that the staff were of very high quality. The head waiter in particular clearly set the standard and was constantly arranging to the needs of the diners. We did not feel that we wanted three dinners in the restaurant and only had two but the hotel offered very limited alternative and some form of simple supper perhaps with room service did not seem to be available other than a plate of chees and a plate of fruit.

A charming hotel, well located with one of the best restaurants. The rooms were comfortable however they looked pretty dated. Great location to zip around places in Blois and Amboise. The best meal we had so far had been in the restaurant

Our stay here while in Amboise was just perfection, from the wonderful welcome, to our room, to the ever accomadating team at the Chateau. I would highly recommnend this Chateau to anyone who enjoys attention to detail combined with great location. While the restaurant was closed equally good recommedations and accommodations where made for us in nearby Amboise City Center. We had a most relaxing stay while enjoying all the region had to offer...also an easy drive to Chateau Chennencau and Amboise City Center of course and Clos De Luce.
