We arrived for a two day stay at CSM and would have loved to stay for a lot longer. The room was a beautiful deluxe room with a small private terrace. The room was beautifully appointed, and the bathroom was a dream (have to re-do the home one!). As has been noted, the service is absolutely top notch; there isn't enough the staff can do for you. The garden restaurant among the apple and olive trees gives you the feeling of having a very elegant picnic catered for you. The pool is perfect for lounging or swimming laps. We did not try the main restaurant, because we loved sitting out on the terrace (180 restaurant) and watching the sun go down and the view to the Med. The food was excellent at 180. The only suggestion we made was when they have a buffet night, the choices were a bit limited and they should try to have more salads on the buffet. Otherwise a divine stay.

Our recent stay at Chateau St. Martin could not have been more perfect. The location and setting were stunning; the hotel facilities, rooms and grounds were even more spectacular than the website photos that so enticed us prior to our arrival; the cuisine was superb; and most importantly the staff and service were absolutely world-class. Breakfast on the hotel’s terrace, overlooking the Cote d’Azur, was the best start to a day that one could ever wish for. Then, time on the grounds, with the amazing pool and gardens, was so pleasurable that it was nearly impossible to break away for visits to the nearby villages, cultural and gastronomique offerings, and coastal towns. There were so many things about our stay that warrant a superlative review, but a few are worth special mention here: (1) the welcome and introduction to the hotel by Fabiola was one of the best arrival experiences that we have ever had; (2) our dinner in Le Saint-Martin was worthy of 2 Michelin stars, and it was made so special and memorable by manager Pierre; (3) on a most spectacular evening, on our room terrace overlooking the Cote d’Azur, with fireworks going off in Cannes in the distance, we had an absolutely spectacular and romantic dinner, served by yet another superb employee named Pierre; and (4) the Concierge services were so skilled that we were able to experience an amazing range of the region’s attractions during our short 4-day stay. Our only regret was that our trip itinerary did not allow for more days at this most wonderful hotel.

One great place to spend a few luxurious days. Exemplary service. Wonderful food. A beautiful setting. And to top it off a one bedroom villa overlooking the entire Cote D'Azure.
I was told that someone described this place as "one step below heaven". I think they were right.

My wife and I were luck to win a prize of a three night stay here and we were not disappointed. We stayed in a junior suite which was very comfortable and spacious with amazing views over the valley. Free wifi is available. The staff were wonderful and really could not do enough for you. Breakfast each morning consisted of a good choice of items and was excellent quality, being English we had cooked items to order each morning and enjoyed eating whilst overlooking similarly stunning views. We took advantage of the wonderful pool area one afternoon which has a food and drink bar. Sun beds are made up for you on arrival and changed as people leave. There are two restaurants, a Michelin starred and a slightly less formal one, the latter had a Moroccan theme going on whilst we were there but the staff would have been happy to serve the normal menu. Unfortunately we did not get an opportunity to eat in either as we were out exploring everyday and so ate out each evening in Vence, Antibes and Nice and as the hotel is in the hills behind Cagnes sur mer you would need to come back earlier if you were planning dinner. All in all a wonderful stay though.

Superb hotel in a magnificent setting with wonderful views over Vence and its region. One could see as far as the sea!

The rooms are very intimate and comfortable with an impeccable service.
We thoroughly enjoyed the gastronomic restaurant for its food, wines (including the advice and service of the Sommelier).

The 180, which is the less formal restaurant was however disappointing. The food was not great for the location and price and the service average.

Dear Guest,

First of all I would like to thank you for sharing your recent experience at Château Saint-Martin & Spa on Trip Advisor.

I was glad to read that you enjoyed our property and specially our gourmet restaurant “Le Saint-Martin”, awarded by one Michelin star.

I also wanted to apologise for not having fulfilled your expectations with our casual "bistrot chic", we do attach a great importance in offering a restaurant choice for all guest we may receive at Château Saint Martin & Spa and agree that there is no comparison possible with a gourmet restaurant.

I hope you will give us the opportunity to welcome you back in a not too distant future

Yours sincerely,

This is quite simply a superb hotel. Not just the spectacular location and the beautiful building itself, but the staff, the service, the food are all outstanding. Having lunch in the garden overlooking ancient olive trees, adjacent to the wonderful pool is about as good as it get's! A bientot.....!

We stayed at the Chateau Saint-Martin during 5 days with our family to visit Nice. At our arrival we received a warm and personal greeting & were accompanied to visit the ground and our rooms. As asked we had 2 connecting Superior junior suites, which were perfect (spacious, nice view..., especially spacious bathroom). Fresh fruit & chocolates was greatly appreciated by our adolescents (14 & 18). Airconditioning was perfect and made almost no noise.
The concierge and other room service is very helpful and after one day they know you by name, which makes a personal touch. There is a beautiful swimming pool and spa, but as we were visiting the surroundings we cannot comment on these.
We dined our first evening at Le 180°, due to sudden showers we had to fled from the terrace, which was tackled in a very professional way by the maitre de salle. The food is fine, especially the soap is to be recommended.
We had also twice dinner in de Saint-Martin, which merits its Michelin star. De second diner we let the chef surprise us with his suggestion, which was excellent, surely a one star. De service is personal and very stylish (I would say more 2 star level). We appreciated especially the young sommelier, Sarah. She was interactive & give us new suggestions, which melted perfectly with the food (ex. the dessert).
We surely recommend this hotel and try to come back in the future.

Room Tip: We stayed at rooms 15 & 16, which can be isolated from the corridor, ideal for a family.
