We decided to stop here on our way back North after our holiday and arrived mid afternoon. Our sat nav played up just as we were arriving but the signs to the hotel were really good and we had no trouble finding it. It is in a fantastic location in the heart of Montelimar but what made it even better... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a driving trip down to the south of france to break up the journey. This hotel is tucked away behind the busy high street down a private driveway. I was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were shown to a nice room with a decent sized bathroom and a balcony... More

To be honest, when I first saw that Le Sphinx Hotel was located on the main boulevard of Montelimar, I thought we had made a big mistake, and expected a very noisy and uncomfortable stay. Oh how wrong I was! The Sphinx has been the surprise star of our summer trip, with a wonderful street-noise-free courtyard room (we requested courtyard,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's in a great location and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Although it has no restaurant, good quality breakfasts are available there are a number of excellent restaurants all within walking distance. An added plus is the secure car park provided within the hotel courtyard. We stayed in room 305 which is... More

Best place close to the center; ideal stopover between Mediterrean and Central/Northern Europe or point of departure to discover the Drome Region and Provence; colourful market on Saturdays; arboured park and some nice restaurants Close to the hotel.

This is our second visit to the Sphinx hotel and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The hotel is situated in the centre of Montelimar on a wide tree lined avenue and the entrance is through a quaint courtyard where there is parking for quite a few cars: a big plus in the centre of town. The... More

We stayed here for two nights when we needed quick accommodation on a trip down from Lyon. I was a bit worried that it was 1) close to the station and 2) super affordable...but it was great. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was nicely decorated and updated and it's right in the middle of town. They... More

The Sphinx is a lovely family run hotel tucked away in a quiet courtyard just off the main street. There is no evening restaurant at the hotel but within very easy walking distance are a variety of restaurants, cafes and bars. The hotel rooms are clean and comfortable and stylishly decorated. Reception was friendly and efficient. The only slight complaint... More

I booked this hotel as a stopping point on our way to Cannes, France. We were pleasantly surprised at what a great location in a sweet little town! The hotel staff was super nice and very helpful in restaurant recommendations and even called the wine tour place to check if they were open so we could tour! Would definitely recommend!
