Nice hotel. Helpful service. Good breakfast. At times wifi can get slow. Many restaurants nearby. Beds are somewhat worn. Nimes is central location to explore Arles and Avignon. Nice shower. Close to autoroute. About 1 mile from train.
In the searing heat of August, the shady garden and pool here are very much to be appreciated. It was lovely to have breakfast outside on the terrace before the day heated up. Breakfast was great, with regional specialities and a good selection of cheeses and charcuterie. We found the family room to be an ideal size, with a king-size bed and two singles for the children, and efficient air-conditioning which kept the room at a pleasant temperature. The lady at reception was very helpful and showed us routes to walk and drive into town, plus where to park.
Our main concern with this hotel was the family suite room. From looking at the website, it appeared that the suite featured a room with a double bed plus an additional room with two single beds. Upon arrival, the suite was actually one room with the double bed plus two single beds squeezed in. For a family of four including two grown-up teenage children the room was simply not big enough. We paid a premium price for the accommodation due to the Vuelta cycle race being in town - breakfast was not included in the price – with the room being very poor value for money. The breakfast itself was just about ok. The hotel is generally looking a little dated. On a positive note the hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. The swimming pool is a nice place to cool off. It’s not heated though so you probably won’t be staying in it for long. All in all, a disappointing visit in a family room which was far too small for four people.
Easy reception , friendly staff and a good clean room . The location is a 20' minute walk to town , but the bonus is its quiet . It has a pool and a large car park . This place is a little gem and well worth considering.
A wonderful place to wake up in and come back to - such friendly and helpful staff and beautiful grounds. My double room opened out into a manicured area by the pool, just magic. Totally satisfying breakfast and great room facilities - safe, minibar, a/c, TV. I will definitely be coming back and it's very rare that I feel like that about a place.
We recently stayed at this BW for two nights while traveling through Nimes. The staff was friendly and our check in was a very smooth experience. However I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel that actually gave you a real key to your room instead of a key card. Nonetheless it was a classic BW experience. Our three rooms were clean and each was uniquely different. The beds were OK but not great. We had a couple rooms that opened right into the pool area. The pool was nice and refreshing during the couple hot days we stayed in Nimes. Breakfast was pretty scarce. Not much to choose from and once it was gone it didn't seem to get refreshed. Wifi was spotty our entire stay. Our rooms by the pool experienced more outages that actual wifi. There's free parking at the hotel but not a lot of spaces. We found it fairly easy to get into the city center and there is a nice Tabla Pizza restaurant across the street. If you're fine with a 1970's retro Best Western hotel experience with southern French charm then this hotel is for you. If you're looking for a more modern updated experience then try another hotel.
Nice hotel , good food, only problem we asked up front if there was always safe parking behind the hotel as i have a open car, and was Yes no problem! Only when we came all spaces taken only up front at the street , but as i was smoking outside i saw from the bar next to the hotel two ladies walking that left with two cars! So the parking is also used by the bar next door while people cant park there car!
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while exploring the city of Nimes and the surrounding area. What can we say, we LOVE this hotel. The grounds and rooms were very well kept and clean. Service was friendly and everyone spoke at least enough English to help us with directions, places to eat, things to do, etc. Housekeeping did a great job keeping our room clean and stocked with towels. Overall, a great hotel. The pool was nice, the hotel was nice, everything was nice. Will stay again. We chose this hotel because we had a rental car and they had free parking, but we will chose this hotel in the future even without a rental car. Great location, and great hotel.
Rooms were clean and comfy free car park always a bonus in France staff really helpful would stay again weather wasn't good enough for the pool but a great all you can eat Chinese over the road with bars for a drink
Lovely stay, remarkably quiet location so near to major roads. Lovely pool if a little cold with alarm fitted so very safe for children. Rooms very comfortable and all furnished differently. Reception staff couldn't be more helpful. An excellent week.
