We had 4 great nights last week in the Thames Residence and it certainly lived up to expectations having read the previous reviews when we booked around Christmas time. We followed advice and entered the Grand Hotel, turned left and found the office but no Philippe as he was welcoming guests who had arrived just before us. However, we enjoyed... More

We stayed for 7 nights at the Thames Residence Hotel during May. I can only reiterate what the other reviewers have said in terms of the warm welcome we received from Phillipe, the detailed explanation he gave of the city and its culinary delights and various bits of practical information. We had an apartment with terrace facing the ramparts which... More
