Stopped by for a couple of days with my significant half for a couple of days, ordered the “lovers package” - 85 euro bottle of champagne, heart shaped rose petals on bed and all over, expensive chocolates and for an additional 45 euro per day we upgraded to the executive room with terrace which was great. The staff was amazing, room unbelievably clean, the restaurant food super affordable and delicious! What more can we ask for? Perfection at it’s best! Can’t wait to go back! Thank you for everything!
We arrived in Avignon on the TGV from Paris around 17:00. The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the train station. The hotel was a very pleasant surprise. The grounds are very beautiful and well maintained the staff are very friendly and attentive. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and the food was delicious. The room was very clean and well appointed. The room rate at 89 Euros was reasonably priced. Breakfast was buffet style with many available choices including , squeeze your own orange juice. The hotel is only a fifteen minute taxi ride fro The cruise ship. However if you want enjoy the charms of old Avignon you will need to take a taxi as well. This hotel was well suited to our needs and I would strongly recommend it for its charm and value.
Currently staying here until the 22nd Sept. Don't normally like hotel meals but have had 2 enjoyable meals during my staff. The staff are very friendly and helpful and would definitely stay here again
This recently renovated hotel offers outstanding value for its excellent comfort, beautiful location, marvellous cuisine and exemplary service by all the urbane and resourceful staff. Its prime assets are: i) its glorious spacious and richly flowered gardens, with swimming pool, in a leafy rural location that is yet just minutes from the center of Avignon; ii) its soothing peace and tranquility, both in the day and at night - I am a very poor and nervous sleeper, yet here I slept with ease; iii) its superb food, truly first class, imaginative and healthy; iv) its exemplary service by all the staff who have been carefully selected for their urbanity, resourcefulness and obliging conscientiousness. As a long-time, very experienced international traveller with many unhappy experiences in far more costly hotels, this superbly managed place offers remarkable value, especially if you are of a sensitive nature.

We rented bikes and drove to the center of Avignon. Pool is perfect to relax a day or two....The service and receptionists were perfect and Austrian. the rooms are big and quiet.All in all a perfect day in a very nice atmosphere. You also can dine in the hotel.
We stayed here recently for 5 nights while we explored Provence. It's clean, modern, well-run & maintained, has a nice pool area, onsite parking and has a great breakfast buffet. Also serves good evening meals if you don't fancy going into the city of Avignon for dinner (there are no restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel). We also found the staff very helpful and pleasant. In fact it's very hard to fault this place and we'd like to thank Novie for her particular help and kindness to us during our stay.
Well, we booked this hotel because of the good reviews and pictures. And because of the swimming pool in a green environment. We booked an "executive" room with sofa bed for our daughter. Well, probably they only have very little executives in France because the room, with the sofa bed extracted, was SMALL. Well maybe not the total square metres but it felt SMALL. we had to put all our luggage in the closet to make some room for ourselves. However, beds were Excellent, nice big flat screen tv, nespresso coffee maker in the very clean room. The bathroom was very clean and relatively big with an excellent shower and seperate bath. And a funny gadget, a window from the bathroom into the bedroom part with..... electronic luxaflex!!! Why? Why? Anyway, room was small but very clean, and everything worked so that made up for the size. Unfortunately we had a bad experience at the restaurant. We ordered medium rare steak (all 3 of us) and had to send it back once because it was well done, even the second time it was well done (so the cook screwed up 6 steaks!!) but since we were very hungry we decided to eat the steak anyway (waitress felt very embaressed, the second round she waited to see if the steak was good, and was even more embaressed when she saw the steak was again well done) (after complaining we didn't had to pay 1 steak, nice gesture but imho every euro paid was too much) Breakfast is ok, but the coffee, from a Nescaffe machine, was the worst i ever had!) furthermore since hotel is nit on an A lication the breakfast should have been invluded in the price, nit an additional €15 p/p extra! Anyway. Staff is extremely friendly and willing to help. Rooms are very clean and bed was awesome. Nice garden and swimming pool. Too bad for the price, bad food and expensive breakfast. Will i go back? Probably not, but it's a good choice when going to Avignon
Firstly there was on site parking, which is a real bonus. The hotel was a little bit out of town, which suited us, I loved that we could park the car safely and easily. It was a very quick trip to the centre of Avignon, plus close to the TGV station where we had to return our car and catch a train the next day. The staff were amazing. Earlier in the day I had done some washing, but some of the clothes were not properly dried. The receptionist arranged for them to be dried and folded for me and they were done before we'd even finished dinner. Plus they didn't charge for this (I was willing to pay). They were so helpful. The room was just a little small, but it was very modern and comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious. I would heartily recommend to others visiting Avignon by car to stay here and travel to the centre of Avignon (about 10 minutes), rather than try to get a hotel in the centre of Avignon and have to negotiate the tiny streets and limited parking. This hotel also has a lovely pool and garden and it is very quiet. The restaurant was only average for dinner. But the breakfast was good.
This hotel is situated close to the TGV station. There is also a bus stop 50 metres from the entrance so travelling into Avignon centre was easy (and cheap!) The hotel has obviously undergone recent refurbishment and is very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and efficient. The gardens are extremely well designed and once in them you would never realise that you were in the suburbs of the town. There was virtually no noise at all. The swimming pool was well maintained and most welcome after a hard day's sightseeing. We ate in the restaurant on two occasions. The food was very good (if a little on the pricey side) All 8 of us ordered a variety of dishes and all were completely satisfied. The staff were aware of what food was gluten free and what was not. Breakfasts were lavish if (to my mind at 14 euros) a bit expensive. There was plenty of high quality food available and to be able to sit on the terrace in the morning sunshine was a real treat. My only slight criticism is that the hotel was unable to supply any gluten free bread in the morning hence why only 4 rather than 5 grade.
We stayed here for 3 nights and we had a classic double room. The room was very clean and the shower was very modern. We also found the bus connection really easy to get to and from the centre of Avignon. It takes less than 15 mins to get there with the No 2 bus which runs almost until 23:00 on weekdays every 30 mins or so. On Sundays, the bus stops around 19:30 though. Since the hotel was on the outskirts, you get really good value for your money and the pool is also a very nice size for a quick dip or two in the morning and evenings after a long day out.
