We had a three hour dinner here recently. The food is inventive and delicious. The staff is abundant - expect to feel a bit outnumbered. We appreciated the creativity of the chef and the loveliness of the location but not the 385 euro bill for three diners who each had only one glass of wine.

I am glad you had a nice dinner at le Prieuré and you found our food inventive and delicious. Actually the rates are those of a one Michelin star restaurant. However our menus begin from 40 € for lunch and from 78 € for dinner. JA Charial More

Truffles,mushrooms, foam stuff, John Dory and leek on potato,saddle of pork with amazing crackling and two desserts. Have... More

Conventional French cuisine restaurant, but at a very high level in terms of quality and service. Only a few hotels offer this quality of a restaurant - this is one of them. The flavors were local and well matched. The real deal.

We'd have loved to stay in this hotel, little old beautiful town nearby Avignon, it'd have been perfect but we stayed in Avignon. Anyway, the taxi ride is about 15 minutes which is fine, euro18 each way. We loved this restaurant, food is outstanding and excellent service from attentive not pretentious staff. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, and the garden... More

It was fine. Adequate. Nothing remarkable. A mediocre hotel in a charming and beautiful village. We arrived at about 6pm following a 7 hour drive only to be told that there was no table for us in the restaurant. We consequently found a restaurant serving much nicer (for us) and cheaper food but it would have been helpful to have... More

Far from the maddening crowds in Avignon (across the river), Le Prieure is a little slice of heaven. Comfortable rooms, walkable distance from lots of attractions in this small town, very good front desk staff. Pool, tennis courts, parking. A lovely garden and pleasant courtyard. Meals are expensive - 25 euros for a continental breakfast is a bit steep. I... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights this August. We loved our suite even though it was rather dark. There was a lovely terrace in the front where my husband enjoyed a cigar and glass of wine after touring. The pool area was great. Very quiet. Breakfasts were superb! Service was good. Our dinner at their one star restaurant... More

this is a difficult one. loved the setting, friendly staff, but expected more of a one star. I had the impression the chef was afraid of using pepper/salt, he really should dare to season his dishes. price was more than okay for the setting and service, but I doubt if we would go back. however I would recommend their lunch...

Loved the food, high quality and perfect presentation with local produce. Service was very good but can be worked on. Wine list by the glass is limted but interesting. Expensive but adequate for the quality and standard of the experience.
