I'm very shocked that this is a 3 star hotel cause I've been to plenty of 4 star hotels worse than this. Of course the hotel isn't perfect and I only stayed there for one night but there were no problems, breakfast was good and the room was very cool.

Despite being very close to the motorway and an industrial zone, the hotel is tucked into a nice private garden with nice surroundings. The junior suite was recently renovated and quite nice. However it was rather noisy as just above the restaurant which you also needed to cross in the evening to get back to the room. Whilst they try... More

After reading the negative comments posted recently, I wondered whether they referred to the same place, as our personal experience was quite different: friendly staff, gourmet dinner (Menu du Colombier 53 Euro) indicating that a creative Chef is at work in the kitchen, quiet night, again a friendly welcome at breakfast. It is true that the place is rather on... More

The Maître d/Sommelier: quite possibly the rudest individual we have ever encountered. Disdainful about our choice of wine and reluctantly delivered our choice to the table and remarked he hoped it was only our aperitif. Actually argued when I complained about my veal being raw, exclaiming that it was pink - perhaps he needs to understand the difference between pink... More

We have eaten in this restaurant from time to time - in the past we always found it expensive, but a pleasant overall experience. However the last time we found a completely different attitude - the staff had changed and instead of being charming and helpful we were met with total indifference and arrogance. Now it is just expensive. At... More

We travelled through france on our honeymoon, starting in paris, then to Domaine du Colombier for 3 nights, before moving down to the south coast. This was a fabulous find! The hotel was recommended in the Sunday Times at the time when we were looking at honeymoon options - what good timing. We found it a little difficult to find... More

Very disappointing stay for one night. The price of a superior room meant we opted for a standard room this time which although small was beautifully decorated. BUT the bathroom was just awful with everything either broken or missing. The shower was immaculate except there were over 100 (yes, I'm sorry but I was so appalled that I actually counted... More

Building is nice, and food very good. So a pity that the service (reception, restaurant, room) is terrible. We are staying in hotels very often, but the Domaine du Colombier has the most awful service I have ever experienced. Receptionists and waiters (inclduing sommelier) are anywhere between completely blasé, incompetent and arrogant. I had thought that this unconcerned French attiturde... More

I'm so sad to have to write in these terms about this beautiful place. We made a reservation through Booking, asked for a superior room insisting on we are a couple with a 3 year old child- so we needed an extra bed, or a king size bed as the child can sleep with us.- We never got an answer...
