Reading other reviews, we consider we were lucky as we had a beautiful quiet room facing the cloisters where we only heard bird song and watched the sun rise over the Basilica. Our shower worked fine and the bed was definitely comfortable. I know others of our group were less fortunate with smaller, noisier bedrooms facing out onto the road.... More

Beautiful building. Old cloister with special features. The rooms are very noisy due to bad isolation. During low season management decided to have drumsessions in the cloisters facing all rooms. The management is lacking the ability to receive large groups and controlling them in a very noisy building. Noise until 5 am is unacceptable at any price! On top of... More

The hotel is located within the ancient convent in the centre of Saint Maximin and is centred around a cloistered garden. The rooms are approached by way of a luxurious wide corridor but are slightly disappointing in comparison being of modest proportions. However the rooms are perfectly adequate and well appointed, ours having views over the gardens. The only disappointment... More

Having stayed here during the summer, we decided to take advantage of their New Year package. The property remains stunning, but..... It was 3 degrees outside (yes even in Provence it can be cold). We checked in and were directed to our room. Thy could have used it as a back-up refrigerator for the kitchens. They knew we were coming... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed at the hotel for 4 nights as we were my visiting my girlfriends family in Saint maximin and they recommended the hotel for its reputation. The hotel unfortunately was a total disgrace. My girlfriend booked the room from booking.com after viewing the photos on the site that the hotel had listed for our room. The... More

We were looking for a hotel with parking and a restaurant in the vicinity of Aix en Provence following an 8 1/2 hour 500+ mile drive from Rome. Finding any hotel in a village near to Aix with a restaurant proved a major challenge, and we chose this one largely because it had one (despite the largely negative reviews). The... More

I stayed in this place as part of a conference, and the location really lent itself very nicely to an intellectual endeavour. As a former monastery it is eerily quiet safe the pidgeons, with a lovely inner courtyard to have an aperitif in or sit, read and contemplate the world. The rooms are nice, maybe not super-luxurious, but perfectly adequate... More

Not so many choices in town to stay, and this one has some advantages, but not so much. You're close to bus stations and the basilique and with a car you can visit the surroundings if you like the mountain driving. The Couvent itself is nice and quiet but the rooms are really standard. On our stay they charged us... More

A beautiful centre in an old monastery with lovely views on to the cloisters. Building clean and comfortable although perhaps a little austere. Didn't eat in restaurant. High parking charge and high price for using internet. We parked in the local park and used the wifi front hellcat tourist office contained within the monastery building

We went on a bit of a spiritual retreat, so it made sense to stay in the old Convent, the room and en- suite were great, the atmosphere and view onto the cloister was smashing, warm room, comfortable bed with good quality sheets, we decided to have breakfast there even though it was not excluded, as we wanted to drink...
