Loved the proximity to Avignon without the bustle. The grounds and the building were beautiful. The staff was most attentive.
The dinner was quite good but overpriced; the winelist could have been better, considering the region.
We visited Avignon and chose the hotel specifically because of the restaurant, quietness of the garden setting and easing parking. It is in a purely residential area some way from the city. On arrival we were informed dinner was not available because of a wedding. It was unnacceptable and it was resolved reasonably by putting us in an upgraded room at the bottom of the garden where a meal was served in our room. Hardly an edifying dining experience. The management and staff were apologetic and pleasant and a resolution was negotiated and the garden location probably saved us from the noise of a band and a wedding party, but it wasn't a great experience and communication before arrival would allowed us to choose an alternative.
It was unpleasant to have the anticipation of a rest and a good meal destroyed with news that to dine we must return to the city. We negotiated a solution but to order a meal hours in advance and have it served course by course in a room miles away from the main house, eating from a low coffee table was not brilliant. The foie gras was excellent, the main course merely two lamb cutlets on a smear of pureed vegetable - the cheese plate just one chevre. Marooned at the bottom of the garden eliminated any spontoneity for ordering as the owner was obviously under pressure and the necessity to totter down the path to us, in a high wind seemed too much to ask of him. We even washed our own cutlery. The price of the meal was exortionate considering the content. I would recommend as the setting was lovely,but not to eat and to check on events.
Room had a large balcony
not too convenient to Avignon
Very freindly and helpful staff. Lovely grounds, big room and bath area. Nice old world ambiance.
Finding it was hard. Poor directions on the web. This hotel is in Montfavet, a very sleepy town about 15 minutes to Avignon. Restautant food was decent but overprised with no alternative.
I don't think it's good hotel compared with other hotels we stayed in France. No obvious advantages.
The staff were exceptional. Happy and eager to help us enjoy our stay. We felt appreciated and pampered. The location is perfect for exploring the upper Provence region. Very centrally located. It was delightful to come back after a busy day and rest by the pool in the beautiful gardens,
The town is very quiet. The breakfast at the hotel is wonderful and very complete. However there are few cafes and bistros in the town within walking distance of the hotel itself.
Nice main building although our room was in a converted outhouse and was not as nice as the main house. The quality of the dinner was very good.
Finding out our room was not in the main house..The continental breakfast was expensive (20 euros per person) and poor with stale coffee and the additional omelettes we ordered were overcooked .
The staff was very knowledgable and accommodating. The property itself was lovely, between the main building, outdoor dining and the pool.
The room was maybe not what I expected, a makeover might be needed, but I did not have a chance to see other rooms. One lady who worked reception and concierge was extremely unwelcoming and rude.
The gardens were the best feature of the hotel.
We did not get the room as described in our booking.Was described as Superior Double Room with terrace. Food was very overpriced. Not as good as other 4* hotels i have stayed in.Broken light bulbs not replaced when reported.
not value for money,expensive but charged extra for everything
Very nice property and lovely garden, quiet and relaxing. Were upgraded at arrival, enjoyed the jacuzzi in the room.
Quite a few marks on the bedroom wall, which gave the impression that the room had not been cleaned properly
