On first impression, the hotel looks a little '70's' on the outside. That all changes the moment you enter the door. We were given a lovely room on the top floor with the most amazing view of Marseille Harbour - possible due to being on our honeymoon. When we returned from dinner on our first night, a lovely bottle of french champagne and a personalised letter from management. The room itself, spacious, luxurious, an amazing soft bed and stunning bathroom.
The staff.... WONDERFUL. Valet parking / concierge - the friendliest you will meet. Reception staff - warm and welcoming. The hotel's spa and staff - fantastic. Whoever said that the French can be rude are crazy, we encountered nothing but lovely, friendly and helpful people.
Hotel was worth every cent.
