Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

Uzės is looking up and this is one of the reasons why. A beautiful building, a young and talented chef, professional staff. We ate from the lunch set menu which was exceptionally good and exceptional value for money. Highly recommended.

A hotel of great charm in the centre of Uzes, beautifully restored and furnished with great taste and luxury. I received a very warm welcome from Arnaud, the manager of the hotel, who, along with his staff, took care of my every need attentively and discretely. The evening meal in the restaurant was one of the best I’ve ever enjoyed –exquisite and delicious cooking using seasonal ingredients, and beautifully presented. Each dish was irresistible – I couldn’t leave a single crumb, and we had matching wines from different regions of France, presented by Jeremy, the sommelier who had a personal knowledge of each of the winemakers. The breakfast was also a delight, I was sorry to leave.
Highly recommend.

this is one of the best restaurants in the Uzege area, I live in the area and it is the first meal I have enjoyed in Uzes for a few years now. It is served with such style, class and elegance. Delighted to have a beautiful Hotel like this on our doorstep, and looking forward to many more delicious outings there.

From the moment we arrived at La Maison d'Uzes, we received five star treatment.

We were greeted at the imposing wooden entrance by Arnaud the director. He arranged for our car to be parked in a secure underground car park, so we could forget about it and enjoy Uzes as "pietons"/on foot which is the best way.

Check in and the bags being delivered to our room was as if by magic.

We arrived on a Monday when the Hotel dining room is closed, so Arnauld offered to book is a restaurant. We chose to take a chance and he helpfully drew a route on a map for us to follow. We found a reasonable restaurant, les Terroirs. The town is noisy and fun during the evening, though I suspect it shuts down fairly early, for those of you of a late night disposition.

The hotel is in a beautiful old building which has been tastefully renovated and refurbished very recently. Not all the decoration will be to your taste as it does mix the new with the old.

Our room was on the top floor, the trois Lucernes, "the three windows", overlooking the roofs of this historic town. We chose to open the windows but there is very good ac. The room was very comfortable with great furnishing though not enormous. There was a mini iPad in the room, with access to the internet.

The bathroom was a truly spacious modern wet room, with a shower. The room is big enough to have a bath but doesn't.

Wifi is available in the rooms though one problem is you do need different passwords for different parts of the hotel.

The hotel has a very nice spa below the ground floor, although we never used it as we had too much else to do.

We had breakfast on the terrace with a choice of Continental or English. It is all brought to you , rather than the usual buffet.

Uzes and the surrounding area offer so much to see. The town itself is beautiful and so easy to walk round. It has great markets on a Wednesday and a Saturday. We went to the "small" one on the Wednesday. On the Tuesday we went to the Pont du Gard which is easy to access. After that we then went and drove round Gigondas, where we had a lovely lunch and tasted some wine.

On our second night, the Tuesday evening we had dinner in the restaurant. This was the fifth stop on our tour of France by car. The restaurant is a much needed top end addition to Uzes. Whilst not cheap, it is not overpriced compared to the other gastronomic restaurants we visited in France.

We chose the tasting menu with a glass of wine with each course. The service and explanation was perfect but more important the food and wine were outstanding. The food has a real feel of southern France with a slight Spanish influence (gazpacho). It was light enough that despite there being 7 courses we were able to sleep that night! The wine was beautifully matched to the food.

We only stayed 2 nights but we are already planning a return visit, as we had only just got started. Next time maybe we will fly or take the train from London to Avignon.

This hotel matched and bettered five star hotels and the food matches Michelin star restaurants, as others have noted.

The little extras help to make the difference. For example Arnaud arranging for the car to be at the door when we left and he and his staff seeing us off with a cool water and a cake for the journey. The staff were attentive but also had a genuine warmth and friendliness to them. The test will be for them to maintain these standards.

Best place we stayed on our trip by road via Beaune, the Alps, Ardeche and Champagne.
