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.

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!

We stopped off in Montelimar while touring France and liked the town so much we decided to stop the night. We were so lucky to find this hotel. We were atracted to it being on the main tree lined boulevard but tucked away down a short entrance to a private courtyard with it's own parking. This old mansion is historic... More

The Sphinx was booked as a stopover on the way to the french riviera and chosen because of the secure private parking.Being able to leave luggage etc in the car overnight is most important to us. Besides excellent car parking facilities, the hotel is absolutely wonderful.We booked a standard room, I am not too sure whether it was standard or... More

We arrived late at night. The staff were most welcoming. Very convenient to have secure parking for only 4 Euros in the hotel precinct . The hotel is situated near to shops and points of interest. Breakfast is adequate and very good value for the price. No need for a restaurant, there is a plethora of eating establishments in close... More
