We had a wonderful experience here! From the beautiful property to the delicious food, not forgetting the great service. We had the complete 4 courses menu, including the cheese selection. The dishes were very well conceived and carefully prepared in wonderful presentations and a mix of flavors and textures that lead you to think about what you are eating. The... More

Just 1km from the attractive, riverside town of Amboise is the Chateau de Pray. It is a foursquare building in its own courtyard and gardens, with well appointed bedrooms and reception areas. Not cheap either in hotel or (michelin starred) restaurant, but in France particularly you get what you pay for, and this is excellent.

Our dinner experience during our stay in Amboise was very good. We wanted to end our stay by eating at one of the Michelin starred restaurants in the area. It did not disappoint. We both ordered the tasting menu. Everything was delicious. The cheese course was exceptional. There was such a large variety of cheese that I was able to... More

We loved coming to Château de Pray after a busy day of sightseeing,& having a glass of wine on the terrace, or a dip in the pool. We spent three nights here, & couldn't have asked for more. We were in a tower room, with a beautiful bath, very comfortable bed, & a great view of the terrace out our... More

I'll preface by saying that I don't normally frequent Michelin star restaurants, so I was excited that we would be treating ourselves to some fine dining in the Loire. Overall, I must say the meal was just ok, but maybe I set my expectations too high. We ordered the five course meal, which ended up having a few extra courses... More

We had dinner at this restaurant during our stay in Amboise. It was beyond delicious. The duck was the most perfectly cooked I've ever had. Flawless service. Eat here, you won't be disappointed.

Just off the main road along the Loire, this a surprisingly quite and comfortable hotel at which to relax after a strenuous day sightseeing. Rooms are comfortable & clean. The restaurant is possibly slightly over-rated and the service exceedingly slow. We very nearly didn't make it to desert. Breakfast is satisfactory. However- the views from the terrace make up for...
