This is a beautiful place - right beside the basilica of St Mary Magdalene - I was very happy with the bedroom and inspiring view out onto the cloister and well. The bathroom was fine and the previously mentioned fluffy towels along with lovely toiletries added a touch of luxury to the monastic surroundings. Despite the elevated price for breakfast... More

Old center of Saint maximin, just beside Cathedral this restaured couvent offer all requested comfort with authenticity, simplicity and the monastic athmosphere, mainly when you go to the restaurant and its internal couryard. Magic stay. Complicate access to parking, just stop front and ring, you ll be charged 10€ per night. Rooms are spacious from simpliest one " le pelerin"... More

We spent 3 nights at the Convent in the corner suite room. It was elegant with the overly large King four poster bed, and very spacious. The bedroom suite was located steps above the entry foyer with separate bath, shower, sinks, & toilet rooms. The views were great. We ate all our meals here, as they were just so much... More

Though we had a little trouble finding the hotel at night (having driven from the airport in Nice), we were thrilled to open the shutters in the morning and see the most inspiring view of the the courtyard below. We felt like we had been drawn back through history in the most lovely way. The rooms are simple - not... More

We just spent a night at this wonderful place. We had a "pélerin" room, the first level. It was perfect, as it had the twin beds we needed with excellent firmness, a window overlooking the cloister, its trees and the basilica to the right. We knew there would be no air conditioning and, in late August with window open, it... More

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
