We had a wonderful time in this nice and cosy hotel. Mother and daughter run the place in a very friendly way. We had a room at the back with a nice terrace with sunshine in the afternoon. The Town is literally 1 minute away as is the beach. For a two star hotel, you get a lot. Free wifi,... More

After staying in a few 2* hotels previous to my arrival in Le Lavandou I wasn't expecting too much! I arrived early and this seemed no problem at all. The room was very bright and clean with a modern wet room bathroom. Even though I didn't have a sea view, being able to see the blue sky and sea of... More

We stayed there in very early February 2014. We had to make an emergency trip to Le Lavandou to sort out our caravan which had been affected by a flash flood. Booked it online at a rate that was just a little above the prices Formule 1 charge. Even though it was out of season we received a warm welcome... More

A warm welcome, clean room with sea view, shower that works (and toiletries), free wifi, free parking, an easy walk into Le Lavandou for the port, beach and good choice of restaurants, what more can you ask at such a fair price! We shall use again

For a 2 star hotel this place is very comfortable. Location is good and we loved our seaview balcony room with retro furnishings. It would have been good to have mini bar / fridge and coffee making facilities in the room. Other than that our stay was most pleasant.

Had a pleasant two night stay here in La Lavandou in this chic retro hotel. It's straight from the 50's baby with maybe a slight makeover in the 70's. We chose a sea view with balcony which had a nice view for a morning brekky or evening vino. Location is 3-4mins from main waterfront and 6 mins to main beach... More

Friendly stuff, good value hotel. (Relatively big TV screen with good selection of channels in multiple languages, including English. Free parking and WiFi in the room. We got upgraded to a room with sea view - always a pleasure!

Fantastic welcome by a really enthusiastic young lady (owner?). Made us SO welcome and let us check in early with a door code sent by text - brilliant service/organisation!! Incredibly low off season pricing. Recently partly refurbished - very clean with plain and simple but, most importantly, functioning facilities. New beds and bathroom fittings give added value. There was a... More

We've stayed in the California many times and love the location and the views. It's worth paying a little extra for the sea view and balcony. Under new management and a fresh coat of paint. But please, IT'S TIME TO CHANGE THE MATTRESSES! They're perfectly clean but old an tired and do not afford good sleep any longer. Sure they... More
