Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Don't tell anyone about La Colombe d'Or. It needs to be kept a secret (so I shouldn't really be reviewing it here) and frankly most people just won't get it.

There is nowhere like this place on earth if you understand what this place represents to the history of contemporary art in France.

Was initially put off by some of the people who've stayed here - monsters like Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall had their honeymoon here for example, but it is taste personified with not an ounce of bling (except for some of the clients for whom it's just a bucket list tick).

The website is deliberately rubbish, you can't book via the usual booking websites and they only accept bookings in writing supported by a phone call.

The rooms are simple but filled with contemporary art gems that you either get or you don't, the pool and veiw around is is spectacular and the restaurant is to die for. The Fricassee de Volaille a la Creme is staggering.

Some of the visitors are the problem. Why anyone would bring children here I'd never understand. They don't get it - they play on their 'phones and eat only chips, and ruin the experience for the people who adore this place.

We have children. We love our kids but we'd have never had brought them here. Let then run free on a campsite and let them come here in their 50s when they've earned it and when they get it.

If you're a bit Four Seasons, a bit brash, then it's not for you. So go there and don't ruin it for those of us for whom this place is paradise.

If you rate a hotel by the speed of the wifi and the size of the television then look elsewhere. Really, just go away.

For us at least, nowhere feels as special.

This is for the restaurant - I didn’t stay at the hotel. The terrace is a superb spot to enjoy an evening, surrounded by greenery and a few significant artworks. Service was sufficiently attentive, but with an overall tone of expensive tourist mill. Cuisine showed promise of old school excellence, with tableside carving and plating, but lacking somewhat in flavor. My single-cut chateaubriand was perfectly cooked but under seasoned, and served with a broccoli floret, which seemed a wasted opportunity considering the abundant, excellent produce I received everywhere else I dined. Wines by the glass were a disappointing afterthought here.

My principal complaint is significant: I ordered a €24 “Grand Marnier soufflé” for dessert. After a surprisingly short time, the dish arrived and was flambéed tableside. However, I was stunned to discover that it was not a soufflé at all, but a soufflé dish of simple meringue. No bechamel, no orange zest, no orange juice, just egg whites and sugar, browned on top. Ordering a soufflé in FRANCE and being served a bowl of meringue is beyond inexcusable, and they should be ashamed.

The setting is beautiful, the accommodations and service were great. Must book early. The wait list is long. If one goes in the Summer or Spring expect St. Paul de Vence to be crowded with tourists (uncomfortably). La Colombre d'Or is open in season and only three days over the Xmas Holidays. Book early.

Yes once again in the rather hot month of August this year we found ourselves in our usual room looking forward to 9 days in ST Paul de Vence and meals in the wonderful terrace .
Have to say once again how pleasurable it is to sit under the fig tree having the best breakfast , the best scrambled eggs
The lightest pain au chocolate the best jus d orange every morning the sky was blue , the tablecloths are white and service is on the ball , a stroll across the road outside the hotel to collect the English newspapers , contemplate the day ahead maybe a tootle in our hired car around the gorgeous countryside , the spectacular views , a visit to one of our favourite local restaurants or a return to Juan Les pins
And Antibes where we spent many holidays when our children were young the memories flood back , to tourrettes sur loup a magical hill top village with again those terrific views and wonderful mellow brick buildings
Then in the evening dinner in that enclosed terrace where as the night progresses and the natural light dims the tables take on a glow , how nice to see that iconic menu containing
Every favourite french dish you might like , the service by friendly and quite cheerful waiters enhances the experience
People are reassuringly turned away as passers by glimpsing
This scene wander in asking for a table .
As reception said the restaurant when we went in early August was booked up to the end of August in the evening .
I make no apologies that my reviews of this totally unique place are paeans of praise as others have said if you want a slick bland modern hotel with coffee machines in the room etc go elsewhere - it would not suit everyone - thank goodness !

I last visited 6 years ago and was excited to go back to this fabulous location but was disappointed. We were in room 51 which meant leaving the hotel and walking down a short road towards the car park. We could have stayed in the village as we didn't really feel as if we were staying in the hotel. The room, as another reviewer stated, is pleasant but with no frills. No mini bar, no hot drink facility, so take a travel kettle if you want a hot drink in your room. The pool is a lovely area, when quiet, but in August completely over-run by children. This hotel feels like an adult space so to see children dive bombing, shouting and playing on floats seemed at odds with this peaceful setting. The food was okay, I remember it being much better 6 years ago. The vegetable crudite basket for 30 euros, was just that with some anchovy mayonnaise. It included a whole raw onion so I'm not sure how you are meant to tackle that. I had fish two nights running which was bland, slightly improved by dolloping over the flavoured mayonnaise that came with it. The Tarte au Madame Roux, apple tart, was burnt round the edges. Our waiters were lovely both evenings, helpful and smiling, taking photos of us and being attentive. I don't plan to go back as the combination of the noisy children and unexciting expensive food puts me off driving back up the hill to this magical setting. I'll hold onto my memories from 6 years ago.

Its' all about loving the atmosphere of art and to feel the special way, why artists were attracted to this place when creating their masterpieces. Luckily for the owners of the hotel they left several masterpieces partly to settle their bill for living in the hotel.
You should not expect a five star luxury hotel as they are new built all over the globe.
its a hideaway for people, who want to breath the same air as chagall, Miro, Matisse and many more and accept on the other hand the shabby chic of furniture all over the house. Me and my wife enjoyed also the dinner on the romantic terreasse. The menu will not be awarded Micheline five star but reflects somehow the magic of the place. Prices are high but the hotel is sold out all over the year because its so special

Via the owner of our holiday home nearby we got a nearly impossible to get table for 4 on a Friday evening in the garden and it was a fantastic experience. Cuisine at is finest and a art collection alone worth the visit.

To recommend but make sure you book well in advance especially during the season.

Absolutely no worth it
Dated arrogant service. One of those places that think they are doing you a favor to stay there
Bad bed. Bad linens Not even a decent shower
Not even a bottle of water to drink at night
Empty mini bar. 18 Euros for red fruits
Just regular milk for a cappuccino
Totally overrated!! So many nicer places to stay around. It was a big mistake to chose that place
I mean. If you would paying 80 euros it would be ok. But not 340. AVOID IT

I have been visiting La Colombe d’Or for over 25 years, we have both aged but only I seem to be showing it! In this time I have stayed in a number of rooms, each unique and quirky, but always comfortable and welcoming. Unfortunately my mobility has suffered and now I need more accessible rooms so I was delighted to be introduced to room 32 on this visit. This room is out by the pool, there are a few steps up to the room but it has a separate shower (not over the bath) that makes all the difference for me.

The food remains delicious, the demi-pension is a bargain, the staff are friendly and helpful - I recognise members of the staff from 25 years ago, a real testament to the hotel.

I can understand why some don’t ’get’ La Colombe d’Or and that’s fine. Personal, it is like an oasis to me, somewhere I can relax, be looked after and enjoy good food and wine.

I am already looking forward to my next visit.

Been going every few years for forty years. This dinner for four a French couple and my husband an md and me a chef. Ordered charcuterie nothing resembled charcuterie looked like Indonesian ricetoffle, ordered escargot looked like chopped snails and tomato paste tasted the same no shells no garlic no butter not escargot. We ordered fish with a metallic taste suffered Thru a rude must be middle eastern short waiter while we all spoke fluent French only spoke to us in English. The food sucked turns out new owner new chef all the locals warned us. Believe us and believe them. $500 for absolute garbage.

hi Its the atmosphere, not any outstanding food, which you can expect, when consuming lunch on the romantic terrace of this unique hotel. it will be anyway not easy to get the reservation confirmed, because it is generally fully booked all around the year. After intense mail traffic I gave up to get the reservation for a suite in this hotel done. I asked them finally, when there is a vacancy in their booking book for two nights and 2 Persons and I will accept it as the only way to get the booking confirmed.So I had to adapt my overall traveling schedule accordingly but at the end we were happy to get it settled and enjoyed this wonderfull experience .
