“All round excellence”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We've just spent a week at the Bristol. You wont find better. Superb staff, large, clean, light and comfy bedroom and an excellent choice at breakfast. Our car was garaged and brought out as soon as we needed it. Centrally located with the tourist office almost opposite.

Room Tip: Some have shower cubicles as well as a bath.

This hotel is well situated just within the walls and easy walking distance from all attractions.It is also 5 minutes walk from Avignon Central station where the Eurostar trains arrive.It was very well air-conditioned throughout.We stayed as a group of 4 and ,as requested,(having read reviews on this site)we had quiet rooms at the back of the hotel.
WiFi worked throughout the hotel.
The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant.
The only improvements would be to have a kettle in each room(we brought our own) and more plugs in the room.
But these were very minor issues,overall I thoroughly recommend a stay here!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back!

Avignon is a wonderful town with much to see. The Bristol Hotel itself is old and the rooms are average although quite comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was great to have a bath/shower to relax in after a long trip . No coffee/tea maker which would have been appreciated but wifi worked well.
Common areas were great. Comfortable sitting areas in pleasant surroundings with areas for communication.
Position was great. Easy walking distance to every thing and plenty of great restaurants nearby. Even a fabulous Irish Pub serving great food and beers etc.
What we most loved about this hotel was the fabulous staff. They are all a great asset.
We parked our car out the front and a lovely man helped with our bags and took our car away to park. He was a "Godsend!!''
Once inside the young lady at the desk made us feel very welcome and made sure we had brochures and information to make the most of our stay. The staff are just gold!

This hotel is ideally situated in the heart of Avignon to explore the city, also very close to the railway station. The manager and all staff very welcoming and extremely helpful. Newly refurbished bathroom was a delight.

We stayed there for 3 nights and were impressed with the standard well worth a 3 star plus rating. Situated just inside the city walls convenient for all the attractions and main shopping areas. The reception is wecolming and efficient with excellent English capabilities. A good sized room pleasantly furnished and a comfortable bed,very clean.As often the case the bathroom needs updating but was clean and every thing worked, not always the case.
Breakfast was good served in a very nice room in fact all the public areas were well tended
All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful , overall an excellent hotel and would definately stay there again.

Stayed at the Hotel Bristol as part of a package holiday.
The room was clean and well appointed.
The breakfast was a typical buffet, fine for us.
The staff are a credit. At breakfast the service was always pleasant and helpful.
Reception staff always polite and pleasant. Particularly impressed with the range of languages spoken.

We recently stayed at the Bristol hotel and the staff at the hotel made our experience in Provence incredible. Claude went above and beyond to help us plan our stay in Provence. He convinced two nervous girls that we would be fine renting a car and driving to the local villages. We took his advise and had one of our favorite days on the trip.
The hotel location is wonderful and wi-fi access was great.
The only drawback was the lack of electrical outlets in the room. Other than that it was a great hotel! Thanks Claude!!
