“Nice hotel if you have a car”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014. We booked it because we had a car and needed on site parking. They upgraded us to a deluxe room which was great.

Pros:
Large room
Great big modern bathroom
Great restaurant. We had a three course dinner which was superb
Staff all friendly and attentive
Quiet location
You can get a bus from the street the hotel is in to the centre of Avignon
Everything was impeccably clean
Avignon is a good base for exploring Provence

Cons:
Restaurant not open for dinner on weekends which we didn't realise until we asked on Saturday night. It would have been nice if they'd let us know on check in.
The hotel is about a 30 minute walk from the centre of Avignon
It's in a commercial area with NO restaurants or shops nearby so it's really only good if you have a car.
We walked into the town centre and back again one day but I wouldn't do it late at night
Water leaks from the shower on to the bathroom floor as there is only half a screen so we had to put a towel down to mop it up

Overall it was very nice and I'd stay there again but you really do need your own car.

This is a gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Avignon. Amazing service - we were welcomed like long lost friends- and a fantastic room with a big balcony. Perfect! We had breakast and dinner at the hotel. The food is really excellent and far exceeded our expectations. We booked an exective room and weren't disappointed.

This hotel is in a suburb of Avignon. Beautiful garden and pool, lovely staff and a ten minute bus ride into town from outside the gate. After a hot tramp around Avignon it is lovely to come back to the peace and tranquillity of this lovely hotel. Free wifi. Free parking. Great restaurant.

Reviewed 24 May 2014

The owner was very welcoming and took the time to explain (in English) the hotel features as well as provide a detailed explanation regarding driving to the old town. Location is very convenient to TGV and a huge Carrefore supermarket having a gas station, making fill-up easy prior to dropping off rental cars at the TGV station.

We had a garden view room which had an interesting configuration making full use of every square foot, but was well laid out, the bed very comfortable, the internet speedy and the bath clean and modern. The location is quiet and parking very secure behind an iron front gate. Walking to town would be challenging from this location.

We asked for ice but the hotel said none was available, which was disappointing. The soaps provided were tiny, and a Do Not Disturb sign on our door was ignored (although a room safe is provided).

All in all, recommend the hotel as a good base to explore the area. We would stay again if in the area.

One thing to note about Avignon for visitors is that there is really nothing to do outside of downtown Avignon.

It should be noted then, that the location of this hotel is good, in that it is less than a 5 minute drive outside of downtown Avignon. That being said, you should be prepared to either drive downtown or take the bus downtown, which means you will be paying for parking (approx. 2 euros/hour) or paying to take public transit. There is nothing to do within walking distance of this hotel.

The hotel itself is nice. It seems rather new, or perhaps newly renovated. It was very clean. And the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The rooms are small, but I think that's pretty typical of most hotels in France.

The bed was just ok. I didn't like that our bed was just two twin mattresses pushed together to make a king bed. But whatever.

Free parking. Free internet. Free bottled water upon request at reception.

Hello Dear,

Thank you for having left a comment on Tripadvisor.
Avignon is in the heart of Provence and the starting point for many tourist cites to visit.
Avignon is a nice place to stay for a few nights but especially longer if you want to visit the region.
Our garden and pool area are ideal for relaxing after a day of sightseeing.
All our superior and executive rooms feature a bedding that was changed in early 2014.
some rooms we call "standard" used to have 2 single beds or a double bed. for a few dollars more do not hesitate to choose the superior rooms, renovated this winter.
hope to see you again,
Best regards

Reviewed 28 April 2014

This hotel was very nice, it is fairly new, the rooms are clean, the staff is excellent, and the restaurant is ok as well. What is a problem is that it is located south of old town. You can get to the center via bus, it is no more than 15 minutes, but the busses stop running fairly early and you will have to take a taxi if you stay out past 9 during the week. It would be a long walk through some questionable neighborhoods.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your comment. We are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay.
Our hotel is located 2 kilometers from the old town.
Our garden and pool area are conducive to relaxation.
We have secure parking and free for your car. Walk to the old town is possible but provides no interest. It is best that you keep your energy for exploring the old town and the many pedestrianized streets furrow.

Hope to see you again,
Best regards
