“le Jardin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Excellent 4 star should be 5.
Big room, nice en suite, however, a hand held shower over the bath. Seperate toilet.rooms 10 and 14 are the best with pool view and good natural light.
Front desk staff super helpful, although not always Englisg fluent. Nice calm pool area, good facilities, some service.Main restaurant Michelin 2 star and deserves it. Get a corner table on the outside terrace, weather permitting.The restaurant charges Michelin type prices but worth the experience...good wine list of course, some not so expensive.
They have a more simple restaurant accross the car park with inside or outside dining whic we thoroughly enjoyed, reasonable price and service, very good food.
The hotel is a medium paced 20 min walk to downtown, which we found delightful, the small boutiques in the walking area well worth a visit. A town for us to come back to for a 2 day visit.

We stayed one night in june since we were eating at their famouse restaurant (2 star). We vere greated in the best possible way be two lovely ladies, and we were upgraded to a suit. Everything was great, maybe except for the pillows as rest of french hotels. The breakfast, service during the stay and value for money was all superb. We will be back.

We booked a room at the last minute and received a very warm welcome from the friendly hotel and restaurant staff teams. Although the 'top end' menus in the restaurant are expensive, the 84e tasting menu inclusive of wine was excellent value. Everything was delicious and looked fantastic - and there were numerous additional treats not shown on the menu. Good comfortable bed but a few details missing, eg towels a little worn, toiletries and shower rather basic for a 4 star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask if you want a room overlooking the garden, otherwise view is unattractive

I booked this for a business trip, and selected it because Easyjet were recommending it on special offer (€107), which I thought was a good deal. Being self - employed, I have to watch the expenses, and with a low room rate and good food reviews, I wanted to try it.

In the restaurant, I was dismayed to find that the set meal @ €49 was not available on the day I stayed, and the only alternative was a la carte. Normally, with the company paying, this wouldn't matter so much, but with me paying, a different scenario. Once the several amuse Bouches (which were lovely) started to appear, I knew this was going to sting me and indeed it did, beautiful though the food was, and great service from the staff, the cost of the meal was for one person €140, which was way beyond what I wanted to pay.

So caveat emptor here. Why can't the hotel, which obviously prides itself on its food, keep the low cost set menu on all the time, for businessmen on a budget?

The Jardin des Sens is two separate things: a restaurant and a hotel. This is despite the fact that they both occupy the same beautifully laid out oasis in a very unattractive part of Montpellier. This doesn't matter too much though, as once inside the grounds, you are happy to be cut off from the outside world.

Many guests clearly visit the hotel on a food pilgrimage and if you are into very high-end Michelin star rich French food, then you will love it. If you want to eat normal food here, you can't.

As hotel guests, we felt like an afterthought compared to the attention that is lavished on the restaurant. (There is a shop at the entrance to buy restaurant trinkets and cook books.) That said, the hotel looks fantastic and the room was a pleasure to stay in. However, trying to get a drink by the pool was hard work. I felt like I had to keep reminding the staff that there were some hotel guests staying there, such was the emphasis on the restaurant.

With some more attentive service for hotel guests, this could be a great place, but it is expensive.

If you are a foodie, you will be in heaven, just be clear you will pay an arm and a leg for anything you eat in there restaurant. It is all or nothing. The portions and the cost for the restaurant are huge, just so you know.
