“Good hotel near old town”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

My wife and I stayed here for one night. The welcome and room were fine. There is a nice pool. The walk to the old town, with lots of shops and restaurants was less than 10 minutes. Parking in a garage is free. Only complaint is that it was a bit difficult to find, as signs are lacking.

We have stayed at Le Tilbury many Times and I have reviewed it previously also. This summer we stayed at the new Le Tilbury "En Apparté". Basically it is apartments next door to the hotel with full hotel service; cleaning, breakfast , swimming pool etc.
The apartment we had was really spacious with two rooms and a kitchenette. There's also a balcony and a great view to the sea and old town walls.
Everything is new and works perfectly. The hotel is really close to the old town shops and restaurants and the price is more or less okay, compared with the competition. We will definitely return to the hotel.

We have stayed at this hotel for many years when visiting Porto-Vecchio. It is a pleasant place with friendly and informal atmosphere. Sure, it is no Sheraton or Waldorf Astoria nyt frankly I cannot understand these overpriced comments. Try Porto Cervo or Capri if You want overpriced, this is quite okay, given the location, view and the pool area. It's fifteen minutes away from the most beautiful beaches in the world and a short walk to the old town restaurants. I definitely recommend staying there but if you want to get some serious formal tuxedo style licking and fancy design furniture, go elsewhere.

We stayed in a reasonable room with bathroom with a bath. It could have been a little more spacious and there was no fridge. The rooms need renovation. The balcony was nice. The pool area was lovely and a nice place to have their very adequate breakfast. Some of the staff were very friendly. Like many placed that we saw in Corsica in August, the place was very over-priced and doesn't compare well on a global level for a three star. However we were happy with our stay but would probably book further in advance and choose somewhere at the beach if we were to return.

Reviewed 14 August 2011

We stayed for 12 nights at the Tilbury in Porto-Vecchio in July / August. The location was perfect, being right on the edge of the old town and also not too far to walk down to the port.

The rooms really need freshening up. The curtains, bed-spread and carpet should all be replaced. The walls could do with a fresh coat of paint as well. The bed was hard and squeaky and the pillows old, flat and tired. The lighting in the room was also weak. The room was one which adjoined the room next door which meant we could hear absolutely everything in the next room.

It was always quite depressing coming back to the room each evening, especially when paying EUR 233 / night and knowing that for a small amount of investment on the hotel's part it could be so much more welcoming.

One other odd thing was that the toilet had a very strong urine smell which didn't dissipate at all during our almost two week stay - gross!

The staff were mostly friendly, however a small request for one extra hour before checking out on our final day was met with a curt "Non!" - this really was unreasonable, especially after having stayed for 12 nights and with check in for the next guest being three hours later. Perhaps either of the two ladies that worked on reception - Tania and Elodie, who were much friendlier and always helpful - would have replied positively if either had been working on our final day. Unfortunately it was Laurent, who was moody - happy one day and grumpy the next!

The pool area of the hotel was clean and well looked after, however it's unlikely you'd be using it much with so many beaches in the area. The hotel doesn't provide beach towels - moody Laurent told us to go and buy some!

In summary, you can definitely do much better than this hotel. Maybe try the Best Western next door for about 40% less cost, the Holzer on the other side of the old town or Costa Salina on the port.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to get the best view

A comfortable, clean hotel, with a nice view from the balconies. Breakfast was nice - continental style. Staff were a bit grumpy and rude - though gave us some good recommendations of places to eat and to visit. The rooms were OK - pretty big, a bit dated, but very clean. In general the state of the hotel was fairly old and dated - could use refurbishment. Probably a bit on the expensive side considering it was a basic 3-star place, and we stayed there in low-season. Overall not bad, but I think you could do better.

We have just returned from a two week stay in this hotel and we were pleasantly surprised after reading some of these reviews. I notice one contributor questions the validity of the good reviews, so let me say now that I am being totally honest, have no connections with the hotel and have nothing to gain from writing a good review. We found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful; the room was spacious, comfortable and clean with a lovely view. Breakfast was served, rather than the endless buffet, but we found we had more than enough to eat. Reception is open 24 hours and parking was free. I can imagine the indoor car park can be a bit tight for manouvering in the summer but the hotel reserves extra spaces in the lay-by opposite for its guests. The situation is perfect - footsteps from the citadel with a huge choice of places to eat, even in October. So were there any downfalls? Yes, literally - the stairs! The "main staircase" is a concrete spiral, dimly lit (as some bulbs weren't working) and between the ground and first floor the edges have badly worn away, making it easy to slip - which I did! The handrails, on close inspection, are actually curtain poles! At the place where I slipped the rail was loose and would not support anyone, including me. I reported it, and returned to find the rail had been "secured" with sticky tape! I was lucky to escape with grazes but someone hitting their head on the concrete steps might not be so lucky - be warned! Apart from that, I cannot fault this hotel.
