This was our second visit to this hotel. The rooms are beautiful, although they would benefit from a fridge, and dare I say it, a kettle. Bedding is comfortable and of good quality. The hotel itself is absolutely charming and dates from 1707 when it was a carriage house. The side of this that could do with improvement is the... More

We found the hotel to be warm and inviting ,the rooms very comfortable meals excellent and the staff charming and effecient. The ambience of the courtyard and the historical feel to the hotel meant that eating there was a delight, particularly as the food matched the sorroundings. Car parking was in a secure area and the only grip was that... More

We recently lunched at this hotel. The lunch did not totally match the nice French courtyard in which we sat, and our waiter was not totally "with it". When asked if a salad was all vegetable he said that it was and then brought a salad containing a lot of fruit. My wife ordered a plate of cheese which came... More

We liked this hotel, and found the French period decor very charming. We had a large suite, and were pleased with it except for the bed, which seemed more like a cot-style matterass than a solid one. The bathroom was clean and very well-appointed. Upon arrival, we were very unhappy to be told that the air conditioning was broken, when... More

I booked this hotel at very short notice having arrived on a Saturday evening at 9.30!! Having been on the way back from a week touring the alps.Not only did they supply two rooms,one of which was a suite, for 4 tired motorcyclists. But they also managed to book us a table in their superb restaurant. We also got a... More

Spent one night with my wife and son on June 15 (one double room, one single). Really lovely, old (historical) hotel, with nice rooms and overall nice atmosphere (Napoleon stayed there back in 1815, it seems!). Friendly staff at the reception and also at the breakfast restaurant. Great location right in the middle of the city, but also quiet. As... More

We stayed at Hotel de la Poste on our way to the Provence. It was just a one night stay over. The hotel has some nice characteristics and some history which is nice and gives an extra touch. But the 'historical aspects' should not have been kept until 2012 in the rooms. I would have liked it a bit more... More

The place is atmospheric, not overdone, a still functioning ancient coaching inn. What more could you want? Although our room was redone some years ago the standard was good, it was very clean, and the upstairs room large and quite elegant (ok, the carpet was a bit spotty). It would be luxurious for just a couple. Also very quiet (although... More

We stayed in a 2 floor family room, with very beautiful furnitures (Rococo style). The kids stayed in the room on the ground floor and the master bedroom was on first floor. Two drawbacks: the kids bed were a sleeping couch with a very thin madras (4 cm thick) and the nice and big bathroom on 1. floor didn't have... More

The Hostellerie de la Poste may as well have fallen through time and space into the 21st Century. It's amazing. Napoleon, Josephine Baker, JFK, Hemingway, Edward and Mrs Simpson have all graced this wonderful hotel, I would imagine it was hardly any different then than it is now... picture Van Gogh's yellow cafe and you're not far wrong Time stops...
