I have stayed at the Hotel du Parc on two occasions; one in the summer, one in the winter. Both times I experienced the same warmth.
The staff is unbelievably amazing. John helped me book restaurants and find something "correct" cuisine-wise; no tourist traps here.
On my second trip, I met Therese, who is so friendly and helpful; everything from small talk to letting me print my emergency train ticket at the reception desk.
The breakfast is 10 euro, which may be a bit much, but for those who want a relaxed start to the day and plenty to eat, it's a good option. Tea, coffee, or hot chocolate (a huge selection of teas), yogurts, cereals and bio (organic) museli, delicious dried fruits, fresh fruit, and a basket full of breads and pastries (my favorite is definitely the chausson aux pommes, a sort of applesauce-filled buttery pastry).
The rooms are all wonderful and bright, and each have their own unique decoration, which we found really original and beautiful. Each room has a minifridge and ample space, along with super comfy beds and soooooft pillows.
The hotel is just off the city center, a 5-minute stroll from the city center and the closest tram stop, which will whisk you to La Comedie, the main square in Montpellier, in a matter of minutes. It is a beautiful walk to Saint-Pierre, the cathedral, and winding through the streets of the center city. The beautiful and peaceful Jardin des Plantes is just up the large street skirting the center city, as is the Parc du Peyrou, which is great for people-watching.
This is such a wonderful place to stay, and along with its beautiful rooms, it really is the staff who make it so wonderful. A stay here is a must in Montpellier.
