Please do not be put off by the rather austere exterior of the hotel block and the fact that it is on what appears to be quite a busy ring road. Inside the apartments are cool and spacious, immaculately clean and very well equipped. Wardrobe space was limited but fine for a few days and we probably pack too much.... More

Unlike at other hotels, Philippe gave us excellent info when we checked in, giving various recommendations as well as things to be wary of - which saves the guest a lot of money and frustration. Everything went perfectly well and Philippe is very accessible / available if there were ever to be any problems. We recommend him and Thames Residences... More

Thanks again for the time being with Philippe and the Thames Residence. I have stayed 4 nights at Thames Residence, nothing to complain, everything is just perfect no matter about the room or Philippe. The location is very good, just one minute walk from the train station. The room is big, clean, and really really nice to have a small... More

Very important - check in is at Grand Hotel reception!!! Thames Residences is run by Philippe, the manager and he will meet you at the lobby of Grand Hotel, which is on the left hand side after you come out of the train station, and that makes everything simple and convenient (if you just remember to check in at Grand...

Originally booked for 3 nights, followed by 3 in Nîmes. After a briefing from Philippe, the manager, and sampling the room for 24 hours, we decided to cancel Nîmes and use Thames Residence as our base for all 6 nights. So glad we did! The room had everything we needed; lovely bathroom with tub and separate shower, super sized bed... More

Philippe, who manages The Thames, was a superb host. He helped us immensely. He set up a car for sightseeing the next day and gave us restaurant suggestions as well. He personally showed us to our room and explained how everything worked ( TV & phone). The room was great too. Very comfortable bed. We would definitely return. Bill &... More

Yes, the other reviews are true--this is a wonderful place to stay in Avignon. Philippe is a warm and welcoming host, and his information about our room features as well as advice about what to see in the area was so very helpful.

This is a pleasant hotel, clean and comfortable, though perhaps lacking charm and style. Philipe is quite knowledgeable about the city. This is a good place to stay during the wonderful theater festival. There is a small outdoor pool, nice to cool off when temperatures hit 36°, as they have this July.

Dear Caroline, Thank you for your email and for the way you resumed your stay " Very good base for the festival" which means certainly that we are well located or situated in Avignon and I agree totally your point of view.

We travelled as a family of four, and while compact, the rooms were clean and well appointed. Philippe, the manager, is very helpful: my two young children loved his suggestion to visit Haribo's (a confectionary museum) and the adults appreciated his advice on the local wine. It is a great base for day trips in Provence. Having free international calls... More

Phillipe the anfitrion, was very kind with us, worried about details, like our wedding anniversary date, with distinction and kindness. Our stay was way better than i thought. The only trouble we had was the internet connection. The room was big enough for our family. If im back to avignon, dont doubt going again to Thames. Congratulations for the way... More
