The 6 of us stayed in Thames residence for 5 nights in the busy month of July. Phillipe managed to get us three rooms. Honestly the room rates were far beyond our budget but all other accomodations had been fully booked. It turned out that we really enjoyed our stay. The apartment is located outside the walls and away from... More

We spent an amazing 3 nights and 4 days in Avignon. Next time it will definitely be longer as there is so much to do in that part of France. When we do, we will absolutely stay at the Thames!

We caught the TGV to Avignon from Paris a short but easy local train ride into the main terminal gave you a short 100 meter walk to the hotel. The room was very well equipped, clean and spacious and Philippe gave a very informative introduction to the lovely town of Avignon. He was very attentive to our needs and was... More

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
