“Not as good as it looks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The location is great.
Rooms large enough and all face the valley which is nice.
The air con in the room was good.
The place needs some serious refurbishment.
The rooms look tired. The bathrooms are very basic. showers over bath but no shower screens guarantees a wet floor.
Service was odd. Not friendly. No flexibility. Breakfast was ok but not special at all. Could be so much better.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

I had only 2 days staying in Buis and had the hotel on a recommendation from family. On arrival I immediately felt the stress of a 12 drive ebbing away into the lavender filled valleys, reception was light and airy and smelt of a mix of wild thyme, lavender and a hint of coffee. Check in was polite and courteous and even with my stumbling French the owner was pleasant.
I love the way the keys are kept on a board in the reception area so that you can help yourself, ideal for someone like me who frequently misplaces things..
The room was clean and well furnished with typical French style, and a balcony over looking the hills was an absolute sell.
The bathroom was clean and tidy if not slightly dark being lit by the shaver light only, a movable unit with drawers was a slightly odd addition but turned out great for putting my laptop on!
I could go on for a long time about this lovely provincial hotel - but to summarise..try it you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: They are all South facing, but if you want wiFi reception get a room over the front entrance!
