We had booked our room, a standard double room via the internet and with the help of T/A reviews for 3 nights.
We arrived by train and it was about a 20 minute flat walk to the hotel.
We received an excellent reception from the owner with perfect english. She gave us plenty of advice about restaurants, as well as being able to buy tickets to the Theatre and Museum, and gave us a map of the town.
Another day she provided excellent advice on catching the local bus to outlying villages like Vaison la Romaine, Sablet and Seguret. We really appreciated her advice as these bus trips are a highlight of our time in the Orange area.
Our room was Room29 on the 2nd floor. There is no lift but easy gradient and the width of the steps made it easy to get the bags to the room.
Our room was very clean with a double bed, 2 bedside tables, a wardrobe and desk, plus tea making facilities. The Ensuite was newly renovated. Free fast wi-fi. Very quiet also.
After having tasted the breakfast the 1st morning, we opted to continue with it for the next 2. Excellent quality.
Hotel is very well located in the old part of town, within easy walking distance to the Theatre Ancient and Arc D Triomphe and shopping and restaurants.
On our last morning we could leave our bags while we did some further wandering around.
We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend Hotel Cigaloun
