The hotel maybe an old Best Western. It may have a campusy feel. BUT, it is in an excellent location within easy striking distance of all the hill towns and lavender fields of the Luberon. It has two pools (go to the one next to the restaurant) and it has an excellent restaurant. The rooms are comfortable, large, and are nicely air-conditioned. The River Sorgue flows by the hotel in its quiet, yet hurried, swirl of green. We loved the simplicity, yet innovativeness, of the restaurant. The Maitre d', Jean-Simon, was very freindly and helpful as were the other staff. I would certainly recommend this place.

This was a last minute holiday for us. And we wanted somewhere to relax as we'd had a stressful month. This hotel did the trick! Beautiful location on the river Sorgue. It was quiet....and the weather was perfect for us Brits! The staff were lovely but only a couple spoke any English (we got by with the French we remembered from our school days !😂) Breakfast was what you would expect in a European hotel...breads... croissants...fruit..and the usual sausages and bacon! We had dinner one evening in the restaurant and it was amazing! One of the nicest meals we've had in a long time! Eating out is fun.... A must do! You'll need a hire car but read up on the French road rules...the French drivers are merciless! The area is stunning and needs explored. We loved L'isle Sur La Sorgue ...stunning little town with shops and restaurants galore...the Sorgue river runs through it with beautiful water wheels every few yards. Our only negatives are ** the air con in the room wasn't the best. ** The "curtains" are see through so you are woken at sunrise by the sun burning your eyeballs...and privacy at night with lights on is questionable. So bring an eye mask...oh and ear plugs...we had the noisiest (but cute!) ducks in the world outside our room! ** The pool isn't heated so you have to be brave to go in! But it is kept clean! ** If you are B&B'ing it (like us) remember and book your evening meal..or you'll go hungry! Thankfully the local supermarket stays open late! ** Having drinks at the pool can be a challenge as staff can be elusive. Our stay was marred when our hire car was damaged in the hotel car park ... Sadly their CCTV didn't cover where our car was parked but the hotel staff were very helpful and apologetic about it and were happy to write a letter explaining this for the hire car company ( thankfully we took out Avis's super cover so we were covered for the damage) . So to sum up .... Do I recommend this hotel... absolutely! Would we go back....definitely! 🌞🇫🇷❤️

Very Small room and bathroom, terrible services at the restaurant, it tooks 20 min for the waiter to come take our order and the restaurant was empty. The food was uninteresting and the menu boring. I don't recommend this place if you don't have a car and wish to visit l isle sur sorgues

I arrived at this hotel having pre-paid for two nights. When I arrived I was told the room was not ready but could LEAVE MY LUGGAGE in reception until the room was ready. As I was with a small dog, i had theee pieces of luggage. Went to bar hoping for some lunch only to be told kitchen is closed. I had a glass of wine and when room was ready I was told to repack my car and go to different location. Grrr! BTW I am 64 yrs old with zero help. I ordered a bottle of wine in the room but when it came, it was a glass with a very dirty glass!! I phoned reception for room service as was tired and hungry after a 5.5 hr journey. NOTHING opens til 7.00, not even for a salad or sandwich. Avoid this hotel. It is not 4 star and if I had not paid up-front for two nights, I would leave tomorrow.

We spend 5 nights is this hotel. Pros: - The staff is very nice and effective from the reception to the cleaning staff - The food at the restaurant is very good (high value for money) - The hotel is located next to La Sorgue - Wifi covers the place and is free - A big part of the hotel has been renovated Cons: - The triple room are located in the old building (not renovated) - The wifi is weak as it use to be when free

We enjoyed two very pleasant nights in a downstairs room with sliding door onto a patio and easy access to the closest of the two swimming pools on site. We also had one night (our first) in rather less pleasing accommodation - upstairs with no balcony, no outlook and two small windows. After complaining that this was not what we’d expected we were shifted, quite graciously, as soon as possible: moral of the tale - be very specific when you book. Both rooms were modern (though no longer in the first flush of youth), clean and spacious. Our second, downstairs room included a tiny kitchenette (no especially well-equipped) with fridge and a microwave plus a third, single bed. The beds were to our liking: firm but not hard. Blackout options were good and the property seemed very quiet. The grounds are pleasant in an understated way, lots of trees (don’t park a dark car under them - pigeon poo) and you could very happily while away an afternoon onsite on a lounger in the sun. Good family friendly property with room for kids to run around in and well-fenced pools. Didn’t try their breakfasts, but had one evening meal in their restaurant which was fine. The ‘bar’ is really the restaurant, but you can get a cold ale to sip in the sun pretty much any time. We discovered a boulangerie about 500m up the road back into town which provided the croissants for our last breakfast in our room. There is also a little ‘food shack’ in the camping ground right opposite the entrance which has a nice outdoor area serving a limited range of cocktails, beer and wine plus good burgers, fries and a decent 'dish of the day'. Very helpful for cash-conscious travellers. Driving through the ‘village’ of L'Isle sur la Sorgue it seemed quite commercial and crowded. But we had an afternoon exploring the backstreets which was well worthwhile, it’s very charming. All in all, a happy stay spent chasing the beautiful Lavender fields and lovely hilltop villages.

Whether I was very lucky or they liked my face but I was given a family sized room as a single guest. I suppose this largesse has somewhat influenced my review but really I cannot fault the hotel for the location and price. Good beds, nice linen and a well appointed bathroom are all I require and Le Domaine de la Petite Isle provided all of these. There is a certain clinical feeling about the pool and grounds but that is the only thing I could comment negatively on. Didn't go for the breakfast as there is a nice boulangerie in the town. Had a meal at the restaurant which was fine but I recommend trying the establishments in the town. A small word of warning, which I am sure has been mentioned by other reviewers, is that it is quite a hike into town and anyone that is not close to the athletic prowess of Usain Bolt should allow at least 25 minutes keeping up a steady pace. In addition there are sections of the trek without pavements so you find yourself at the mercy of French drivers who seem to consider it a sport to see how close they can drive to you. Part of the charm of the place I say!

We were there one night only. It was more than adequate, easy to find, lots of parking and very quiet as I don't think there were many people there at all. I'd only suggest that you not book the breakfast (14E) It wasn't really worth it. We had to ask for scrambled eggs and bacon. A fight with the orange juicer actually had us in stitches and laughing because it was so goofy. The egg boiler was a challenge that we lost as well. The coffee maker ran out of options before we were finished as well. There was lots available, it was just not worth it. We should have gone into town, found a cafe and had breakfast there.

I have spent 2 nights here: rooms are good (large, clean, good bed). The breakfast and lunch are good too. The only improvement could be the meeting room: projector was not great and it was warm & difficult to reduce the temperature

We stayed here for a wedding in the area. We were impressed with our room. it was bright and clean. Wifi is terrible but it is in many places in Southern France. Breakfast is not included which is too bad. nice pools (2) The only issues we had to deal with is we needed to extend our visit and we forced to change rooms. This was just bothersome and our next room was not as good as our first. Needed help with my wedding speech which I was saying in French (I don't speak french) and the young girl at the desk on Saturday September 24th was amazing and took the time to help me.
