“Some shortcomings”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Beware: The hotel has neither an elevator nor a porter.
Beware: There is no one at the desk after 9 PM, so I don't know what you would do if you needed help.
Beware: The thermostat is more complicated than a simple dial; seek instructions from the staff if you are unfamiliar with it.
Beware: The instructions for the free WiFi are inadequate. Again, seek instructions from the staff.
Plus: The staff, as others have said, is friendly.

Stayed May 2013, travelled as a couple

Seemed a pleasant hotel with friendly English speaking staff and reasonable food. No chance to sample the facilities as we were travelling on early. Room was small, but entirely adequate for our overnight stay.

The principal memory is one of staircases - going down to the room, up for food, then down another for reception and breakfast. So possibly one to avoid for the elderly or infirm.

We seemed to have been put in one of the older rooms facing the road.
Our room was very tired and did need a refresh. The fittings in the room were very worn.
Suspended ceiling in the room from which you could hear dripping throughout the night.
The bathroom was tired, had a very small shower and smelt of damp.
Other travellers with us reported much nicer and modernised rooms.
The Restaurant was reachable via an uncovered patio but the décor and food was very good. Very friendly and helpful serving staff.
Car parking and pool area looked very welcoming.

We really enjoy the place for diner by the terrace with nice old trees on the evening.
A pool is not far and quite nice to see in the hot summer of Provence....

The food was quite good and the waiter was really active and efficient as the place
was really very busy.

We enjoyed the Rosé de Provence and the qualitaitve food and place.

Friendly staff at the reception desk, very willing to help and give tips concerning the environement.
Family room has a huge masterbed but the children's bed is a sofabed, which isn't quit comfortable if you have two older children.
Large breakfast buffet with different kinds of jam and cheeses, orange juice, fresh fruit, cereals, boiled eggs, pastries, ...
As the hotel is next to the 'Rue Grande', there are lots of restaurants nearby, nevertheless we had diner once in the hotel 's restaurant and I can recommend trying the menu 'gourmet et terroir'. Make sure you're hungry because they serve big portions!

Stayed August 2012, travelled with family

Hotel is on a bend as you enter the town from the west, so its easy to drive past, parking is via the side street and at the back of the Hotel. Reception at street level, and very helpful.
Hotel is in the middle of the old town, and you can walk everywhere with ease.
pool area is good, but the water was freezing. room was ok, but needeed a new carpet, they appear to be replacing all the bathrooms, ours was all new.

have to agree with other reports about the breakfast, not the best we had in france.

The Hotel restaurant was busy, and the food was average, but the restaurant itself was new and very modern and dark ( low lighting ).

not sure if we would return

Room Tip: rooms at the rear are quieter

Lovely hotel. Staff, rooms, food (breakfast a little basic), but all round and value for money this hotel is well worth staying at. The rooms even have air conditioning, which is unusual in the Gorge du Verdon.

Room Tip: A couple of rooms also have a little patio leading onto the garden making it easy to get to the pool...
