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

We were pleasantly suprised at the modern up-to-date quality of these rooms which still maintained the old world feel. Big comfortable beds and luxurious bathrooms. And windows that begged to be stared out from. The hotel is tucked away like an oasis in the heart of the main part of the town with a lovely courtyard and little patio off... More

Stayed here just one night on our way through France. Montalimar is a really pretty little town and well worth a stop over. We found the hotel very easily and it has good free parking on site. We had booked a superior room direct with the hotel, but on arrival were told that they didn't have one, but the room... More

The Sphinx hotel is justifiably the best reviewed hotel in Montelimar. From the boulevard Desmarais, you might not even know it was there. This a former grand house, dating from the 17th century, with a wonderful courtyard in which you can park safely. The hotel is locked at midnight, but they give you a code to get in after that...

We chose this hotel as it was in the centre of Montelimar. What we did not realise when we booked it was that parking in Montelimar is at a premium so the hotel was an excellent choice as it has its own courtyard and parking right in the middle of the town with everything within walking distance. We were warmly... More

We loved this hotel. It reminded us both of what made Fawlty Towers and 'Allo! Allo!' so watchable; the fantastic interaction between the staff and the guests. To us, this is what many hotels have lost, our host couldn't have been more helpful, the lady who looked after us at breakfast was suitably alluring and even the woman who does... More
