“Good hotel, in a great location....”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

Just back from catching a week's sun in beautiful Calvi. Our second stay, after a 10 year gap, at the St Christophe and very enjoyable it was too.

The hotel was beautifully clean, linen & towels changed in our comfortable room every day. Housekeeping staff were brilliant. Buffet breakfast plentiful and good. Pleasant outside seating areas in both sun and shade, alongside the pool and in the terraced 'garden'.

The majority of staff were very friendly and helpful. Dana on Reception who managed our check-in deserves a special mention....she was excellent.

We also had room 302 and would agree with some of marycampbell's comments re. the messy rear of the hotel and noisy drain pipes. However we were positively delighted it faced north....it stayed so cool during the day without needing to keep the air-con blasting away non-stop. For us that outweighed the downsides, but we can understand why people may be disappointed as it's probably the poorest sea-view/balcony room there.

Helpful reception, outstanding buffet breakfast, great value evening meal menu (no choices), well located, nice room, good view. Room a little pricey but the bill at the end was ok. Pity they were full the next night otherwise we'd have stayed longer.

Very good position in Calvi. The room was clean and the breakfasts were good value. Sadly the evening meals were of a poor standard and we preferred to eat outside. Reception staff not friendly, not helpful. Worst part was our balcony for which we paid an extra premium. It faced north, was in a corner, and the sun never reached it at any time of the day. The outlook over the sea was good but turn your head 90 degrees and you can see the back of the hotel, only 2 meters from our balcony, was a mess of leaking pipes, lots of wiring, very unkempt and messy. A drain pipe ran continuously and loudly through our balcony. Luckily there were public areas where we could sit and read and relax.

Room Tip: Avoid 302, it never sees the sun.

Only a few minutes from the centre and marina ....... 10 mins walk to beautiful white sandy beaches, calvi is a lovely place with lots to do and hotel saint christophe is ideally located. Excellent choice of restaurants and bars some with live music in the evenings. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean hotel. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast selection is very good incl the freshly squeezed orange juice ... Nice touch, you can enjoy your breakfast inside or outside overlooking the sea and the citadel .... Great views. We chose September to visit as its a lot quieter but still plenty going on and very enjoyable trip. Would recommend balcony room with sea view.

Stayed for two weeks at the end of August and found the hotel very good. Great location by the sea over looking the back of the Citadel and just a short distance from the shops and restaurants but away from any noise. Worth paying extra for the sea view and balcony. Pool was nice size, and rarely over crowded. Pool meals tasty and good value. Breakfast also very good with tables inside and out, all with white table clothes and napkins.

Room quite compact but had all you needed and was cleaned and linen changed regularly.

Staff throughout very friendly and helpful, with good English.

Calvi itself has a lovely beach, plenty of boats and people to watch around the harbour, and good restaurants, though prices on the high side (though not out of line with popular coastal towns). Was quite steep and uneven under foot around the citadel and parts of the town, so flat shoes recommended. Also found people were dressed a bit more casually in the evenings than expected. The weather was hot, even in the evenings in the first week, so this was probably a factor too. ( air conditioning in the room meant this wasn't a problem overnight).

Would highly recommend the hotel.

We stayed here fir two weeks in June. We were so pleased with the location, 10 minutes from the picturesque harbor of Calvi. Friendly and obliging staff. Spotlessly clean, super breakfast and lovely pool
With views of the Citadel and out to sea watching the luxury boats go back and too. We will definitely go back. Well done St Christophe

We arrived off the ferry from Nice, trundled our luggage up the hill from the ferry to find the hotel in sight. it is comfortable with adequate and very clean bedroom ( with good air conditioning). Small bar and outside terrace; heated swimming pool on cliff edge with loungers; pleasant dining room with nice breakfast. Staff were helpful. Great location for the town - restaurants, harbour, beach all an easy walk. The highlight was the view from our room - pay extra for a sea view - sit on the balcony, great view of citadel and the sea, it's really stunning and a lasting memeory from the holiday

Room Tip: request a higher floor with sea and citadel view
