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...

WOW...what a fascinating old building. I can only imagine the history here. The room was small, but we like it...just like it was in 1275. The room was clean and pretty, the bathroom was really nice with great water pressure and big fluffy towels. We ate at the restaurant for dinner and it was first class, amazing food. Definitely a...

Quite an oddity. The whole place is nothing but stunning - if you like old stones and medieval atmosphere, this is the place to stay - unique and magic, you just feel you gonna meet Franciscan friar William Baskerville in "The Name of the Rose" at the next corner. Actually I was there for a meeting (a short stay then)... More

I spend three days here over the long week end, and I have only good things to say. The location is breath taking. Truly unique. Dont be put off by the negative comments. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. I was slightly disappointed with the food, but otherwise a great experience. Highly recommended.

The location, quaintness (as former convent) and beautiful courtyard were a fine trade-off for the room, which was a bit on the spartan side. Other pluses: 1. The restaurant was excellent 2. Quiet and still I would gladly return.

This hotel is a converted convent, with the benefits and disadvantages that that brings. The disadvantage (the only one) is that the rooms are small, being converted Nuns' cells - they were not used to 5* facilities! But the room is adequate, and the bathroom well executed. The restoration of the rest of the Convent has been done with great... More

Spent one night at this unique hotel which is located in a small village. Hotel is very picturesque, the courtyard which our room overlooked is beautiful. The beds weren't the most comfortable but were fine for one night. Parking was 10 euros a night or you could park outside for free. Nice place to walk around and see some history.... More

At the reception the classic room was said to cost 89 Euro plus 10 Euro for parking, but in the morning they had put 10 Euro more on the bill. They agreed to original offer. Bed was hard and the room very small. Dust in many places. WiFi 9 Euro for 24 hours.

My wife and I just spent a night at the Couvent Royal. It was a great experience. We had a room looking over the cloister. Smallish, but the rooms are converted monks' cells! This is inside a monastery. The cloister is outside the bar and restaurant. Superbly restored. The inside bar and restaurant are in the chapter house with original... More

I was a little surprised to read the latest comments on this hotel. We also live in the South of France and have visited this hotel 3 times these past few years. I absolutely love this magical place, which has been restored in a way that respects its past history. Service and dinner at the "Chapitre restaurant were very good... More
