“A jewel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Loaded with charm, great location, great value, and service, service, service. We had a great stay the first of Oct. Veronique and Franswa saw to our every need. Food was excellent. Across the street and from our window, the Med. Cassis and the hotel were an unexpected jewels. Go to Cassis and stay at Jardin d' Emile.

Room Tip: Rooms with balcony looking out at the Med

Don't believe the photos...this is a ramshackled establishment. The most expensive room is actually the third floor attic, and the host didn't even offer to help with the baggage up 3 curving stairwells. The room was dark and dingey, and the shower is so tiny, one would have to walk in sideways. We booked 5 nights, paid for one and left without unpacking.

We have mixed feelings about this hotel... It had several very strong points and a few weak points. The location was great - right across from the beach and a short up/downhill walk to the old town and the restaurant/cafe scene. The room itself was huge, comfortable, had a great view, but wasn't very clean and needed some work. Parking was in the hotel's own lot, which in a town like Cassis was a real plus. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only real downside was that the hotel was a bit worse for wear and the room was run-down and not particularly clean. That would be normally be a real negative, but the positives resulted in our overall rating.

Pros: Location, free and secure parking (in a town where it is almost impossible to find a park), nice breakfast served in your room, if you wish. Air conditioning. Clean and quirky. Loved the balcony overlooking the beach. Quiet. And did I say free parking???? Frig in the room. Supply of beach towels. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Cons: We had difficulty paying with our credit card(s) . Only time in 5 weeks that we experienced this problem. Had to drive into town and get cash from an ATM. Glass wall between bed and bath, not a problem for us, but might be for others. Stairs were quite narrow, could be a problem for some.

Charming hotel overlooking Bestau beach. We stayed in room 5 which though small is clean and comfortable with a balcony where you can take breakfast. We found the breakfast large enough to share between 2. Air conditioning was effective. Decor starting to look a bit tired. The staff were excellent. Cassis was very busy so it was useful to have free parking. The hotel location is great for the beach or the walk to the Calanques.

Room Tip: Room 5 has a balcony and glorious sea view

Agree with previous comments - simple facilities but charming characterful hotel in good location, short walk to town and easy parking

BUT - misleading description in that website clearly suggests that the hotel includes use of the Same Same beach bar and terrace opposite, with pictures and comment "Come on and Relax with our private terrace facing the beach". We can recommend this beach bar, it is lovely, but you have to pay - 34 euros a day for a couple.

Also, both the Hotel's 'Pastis' bar and its Garden restaurant were closed during our stay without any warning (mid June 2013 so not out of season)

The hotel staff were pleasant enough, but unable to explain or give any reason for the above

Shame, because clearly a hotel with lots of potential charm and excellent location. If access to the beach bar was included, and the restaurants open, we would have rated highly, but the above issues were unacceptable

I e-mailed the hotel after returning home and checking the website details again also, but received no reply or explanation

Room Tip: Characterful rooms but simple facilities

This hotel was ideally located, just across the road from the beach and a few minutes walk from the beautiful harbour in Cassis. We had a large terrace with a full sea view. Although the room was a little old it was very clean and comfortable. In addition it was extremely convenient to have private parking at the hotel. Considering the cost of hotels in Cassis, Jardin d'Emile was extremely good value from money. We would certainly stay again and recommend to others.
