A splendid little private hotel in the middle of a main road yet and oasis of calm. Go through the entrance gates into a courtyard where we had cover to put our bikes (moto) and a hose to wash off the grime of northern France. The hotel had a wide staircase of what I presume was marble, very cooling. This... More

Absolute little gem. We only stayed the one night but you would never believe you were in the middle of Montelimar. Exceptionally quiet, professional staff, secure parking. Room was perfect. Breakfast was sufficient but ham and saucisson were missing. Don't tell everyone

I've stayed at the Sphinx a couple times now, the staff are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. The location is good, but car park a bit small. I think the rooms must have been refurbished since I last stayed. I would go back.

Whether it`s the AutoRoute, the RN 6 or 7, whenever we need a break on our way to or from the South we always make for the Sphinx Hotel, Montelimar. We drive off the busy main street and into the calm of the courtyard, greet le patron or his wife, who always regard us as old friends and make our... More

This is an excellently located Hotel slap bang in central Montelimar but set back in it's own courtyard so away from the hassle and noise from the street. Typically French in decor and service / hospitality - the owners and staff provide a nice, friendly feel to the Hotel and there is a nice atmosphere around the place. Breakfast is... More

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
