We had a rough start at Pairal -- were given a top floor room (an attic in the old mansion) which was a lot of stairs and a tiny window -- and as heat rises, it was very warm, with what seemed an anemic air conditioner. The desk clerk said that was to the good, because if the room were too cool, we might get sick when going to the warm outside!! Nearly left right then.
In time, however, the AC got the job done. The window gave us a canopy view of a large tree with abundant bird life. Breakfast was quite good (smoked salmon and cold meats in addition to yoghurt, fruit, boiled eggs, and the usual pastries). Though there was no brewed decaf (very unusual in France these days), tea was a decent substitute. Eating in the wonderful garden was especially pleasant and the service was good. Parking on site (expensive). Many other niceties -- free internet, newspapers, fresh fruit, nice lounge. Easy and attractive drive to the sandy beaches in Argeles (beaches in Collioure are fairly rocky).
Best of all, the hotel is right in the middle of Collioure with its many restaurants, shops and sights -- and the weekly market was just out the door as well. The map in TA doesn’t capture how close everything is to Casa Pairal. We also got a decent rate (through Venere). The steps to the old attic never got better though.
We would certainly return but would seek a lower floor.
