“Unbelievably rude and unpleasant owner.”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

Looking for a hotel after a long journey delayed by traffic we found this hotel as the owner was about to close. He said he had one family room which suited us but was 140 euros. Expensive and the reception was stained by and reeked of smoke so I asked to see the room. No!! was the response not pleasantly but with an agressive outburst. As it was late I reluctantly agreed to take it and went to fetch the family. He then wanted full payment before taking us to the room, realising I had left my wallet I returned to the car to fetch it. While my wife and two small children were waiting she became uneasy about the place because of the owners attitude and the state of the reception so she again asked to see the room and was again greeted with the most unpleasant response. She walked out and he lost the let of his room. From some of the other comment it is clear that this was not an isolated incident and this man has no concept of civility and service. Steer clear!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst on a biking holiday. The hotel is a very old interesting building but maintained very well. There is a small amount of on site parking and the owners do all they can to fit everyone in. Nice continental breakfast in a lovely bright room filled with interesting items. Our room No 4, was a bit on the small size. & we were woken at 5am each morning to sound of the dustmen. The owners were very friendly.

Reviewed 4 November 2008

We found the Hotel de Provence on the Office de Tourisme cite for Digne les Bains. We wanted a hotel there to stay one night before taking the narrow gauge rail to Nice (actually part bus ride).
The hotel is family run and can be booked by e-mail, though be sure you get an answer saying they got your commitment. There is no lift so stairs to upper floors but they help if you look like you need it. There is definately a family-feel complete with grandparents and cat. The room was comfortable though small, but with nice one-person bathroom with shower. Breakfast was in a room with a beautiful full wall mural in pastel colors. Town center was an easy walk.
The nicest part of all was the offer to take us to the train station which was quite a way, maybe a mile, in the family car. Who could ask for more. .
