Hotel L Orangeraie

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. A room on the first floor or above is recommended for wonderful views out over the pool to the sea. Ground floor rooms open directly on to the hotel's terrace, which could be noisy if other guests are sitting outside. We were initially given a ground floor room but asked to be moved to the first floor. Our room was comfortable and clean, although easy chairs would have added to the room. One area for improvement would be the tea and coffee making facilities, which weren't replenished during our stay. The buffet breakfast had plenty of choice, lovely fresh fruit and baked items - completely self service unless you order the Continental breakfast. We had lunch on arrival, but had to make a quick choice as the restaurant was closing at 2pm! We also had dinner at the hotel on our first night, the food and service was excellent. The outdoor eating area lacked atmosphere, but we would eat in the restaurant again. The hotel would also benefit from an indoor lounge bar area. We would have had a drink on return to the hotel, but it was a little chilly for sitting outside - a missed opportunity by the hotel. The poolside bar service was very good, but bear in mind it doesn't open until at 3pm. We booked through an on-line booking portal and received a discounted price. We would stay again on the same basis, but probably would not pay the full advertised tariff. Overall a great stay and we would revisit at the right price as such a lovely location.

We came here for one day and night. On arrival we were taken away with the setting, very impressive! I believe it was a Mansion built in the 1900's The entrance to the hotel was fabulous, It must once have been a stately home. We had a lunch, on the terrace, which was excellent. We had sesame fried prawns salad, very nice, and reasonably priced at 18€ the wine was only 27€ (can't remember the name, but it won a gold award) excellent, and surprised at low price Then to the pool, which was spotless and lovely. Lovely loungers next to the orange trees. The room was nice, amazing sea views. Breakfast excellent So why only 4 stars? 1, At Lunch there was no Menus or prices, only suggestions. I believe this could be embarrassing for someone to ask price of each suggestion. Fine for us, but sometimes we offer our elderly family, nights in hotels, they would have wanted to know cost. The coffee also was not an expresso, no mousse, and no small biscuit or chocolate, which is usually standard in a 3 star hotel! As a note it was also Easter Monday! 2, The pool was supposed to be heated, but it was very fresh, only children seemed brave enough to go in. Think it need a few extra degrees 3, The bathroom towels were thin compared to most hotels we have been too. Also the products were not nice at all. The cheapest of the cheap, especially the little white soap (you know the ones I mean, like in budget hotels! I always travel with my own products, thank goodness! I am though surprised it was a 3 star hotel and not a 4

Absolutely charming man on the reception who gave us first class service . Room was overlooking the pool , very big and bathroom was lovely . Pool area again great , we didn't eat here but our stay was perfect for what it was . We will return when in the area again . Thank you very much

We recently held our wedding at L'Orangeraie and cannot praise the team highly enough for the level of service they gave to us, our family and friends - exceptional from beginning to end. This is a traditional French hotel and the key to its appreciation is to set your expectations accordingly - if you're looking for 5* luxury with a long list of amenities, this isn't the place for you. If you want a tranquil, picture perfect setting with kind, thoughtful staff; a beautiful pool area, convenient location to St Tropez (without the crazy price tag) then you'll struggle to find better than this. Our only tips would be to take your own pool towel & hair drier. The food is superb, everything from the breakfast buffet through to evening dinner, delicious and freshly prepared. Rooms vary in size and decor but essentially are 'Provencal' in style - and the 'sea-view' is breath taking. Our family & friends loved it & we will undoubtedly be returning to this little piece of Riviera heaven.

We had driven past this beautiful building many times during previous visits to the area, and admired it from afar. It was a delight to be able to stay here for a few days. The room was very comfortable with an amazing panoramic view of the sea and surrounding countryside. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the late afternoon atmosphere around the pool was so relaxing, with a chilled drink and a shady sunbed! We would definitely stay here again if we come back to La Croix Valmer.

Yes indeed, we enjoyed our stay at the L'Orangeraie very, very much. The hotel is a beautiful place to stay, a little hidden treasure in today's world of mass tourism with a very friendly staff.The menu is a bit limited and could do with a nice plat du jour.

We booked this because of the fin de siecle architecture but had no expectations beyond that. The building us beautiful and has been well restored, although is more impressive outside than in. The terrace, which doubles up as a dining area is pleasant, overlooking the swimming pool and small garden area. The owners and staff are charming and helpful, which more than makes up for the adequate but unexceptional rooms. Nothing particularly wrong with them, just a felt a bit dated in terms of decor and style, especially when compared to the rest of the hotel.

Concept of customer service sadly lacking in this hotel which looks so beautiful from the outside and has a lovely pool and gardens. Understand that it is a three star but would it have really taken a lot for staff to put breakfast dishes on the tables each morning instead of just standing watching guests make endless trips to the buffet area to get set up? Unknown fungus growing in fridge in our room which was rather suspect. Hairdryer fitting hanging off the wall. Did not appreciate the waiter at dinner grabbing the spoon off our one year old and telling her mother how she should be eating. Still an experience.......... rather like Fawlty Towers all in all!

We have just returned from a lovely relaxing stay at L'Orangerie Parc. Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. From the continental breakfast by the pool, to a lazy day at the pool (always enough loungers) to dining by the pool at night (food excellent) we couldn't fault it. Conveniently located for the local town, La Croix Valmer, local beaches and trips out to the French Riviera and Provence. Rooms were clean, comfortable and decorated in Provencal style. We will be returning next year !

My wife & I planned a few days in France to meet up with 10 friends and picked this hotel. We were not disappointed. We organised a special meal at the hotel on one night, planning it from the UK months before, and the hotel did a fantastic job. We ate a table outside near the swimming pool, and can only compliment the hotel in all the preparations they made to make the evening special. The food was delicious and the service was attentive. Although the hotel seemed to be full, we never were aware of many of the other guests. It seemed that many went out for lunch and dinner to local places. The staff were always very helpful and considerate. We will return.
