“Poor Location, "Worn" Property”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Stayed here for a night in November, 2011.

I was drawn to this Hotel by a picture on the web which turned out to be a misleading image.

While the staff was certainly pleasant the Hotel is in a run down location next to a school and shopping complex. Although November, the exterior gardens seemed unkempt. The interior of the hotel plus the room/bathroom was quite "worn/run down".

Assume this used to be a gracious Hotel in a good location but all about this hotel speaks of "decline".

We stay in this hotel Montpelier in passed August. From the beginning we feel like we are home. Hotel staff was friendly and always helpful. All rooms are big and individual decorated, air-conditioning , big windows, free parking and WiFi , large bed and nice cosy bathroom. Well to find this hotel was not easy and you need some navigation tool to find it, but as soon as you get into the hotel property you are like in magic quite garden not far from motorway and commercial area. Regarding commercial area, is fantastic thing. All kind of stores you can find there and direct tramway to city center. If you will stay in Demeure des Brousses, you wont regret.

Just back from three nights at this hotel. Currently no restaurant so need to either walk to the shopping complex or drive. At one stage this would have been a beautiful venue, however the Hotel is next to the Lycee (high school, and a 10 minute walk from the Odysseum - which is simply a shopping mall, with cinema and other leisure facilities. with fast food style outlets. The rooms are quaint, and have old world charm, but whilst the service is friendly and efficient, the hotel lacks atmosphere.

Ten minute stroll to the Tram which takes you into Montpellier, 2euro 50 - return - However harrassed by Romanian Refuges - beginning both on the platform and on the Tram - they offer to assist then request money. This didnt encourage the walk from the hotel back into Montpellier at night, as operate in gangs.

Last night on a round trip in southern France, perfectly close to the Montpellier airport, but still very calm and remote amidst beautiful nature.
Spacious and pretty rooms in this old manor, good breakfast, great garden to relax and very calm surroundings.
Enjoyed our stay very much.
Tank you!

We stayed at Demeure des Brousses for one night in October 2009. The route to the hotel seems a bit odd - it's on the outskirts of the town and light commercial businesses have intruded on this hotel 's country space. Then you drive through the entrance to find a typical french country hotel with its own grounds.

Our room was individually decorated, good size with a small balcony. The bed was large queen size and very comfortable. We found the staff helpful and very friendly. Breakfast was not special, but adequate and typical of small French hotel breakfasts.

This is a comfortable little hotel in a peaceful setting and within easy reach of Montpellier.

There's a restaurant in the same grounds as the hotel - quite expensive and the worst service we experienced in all of France. Although the food was good, we could not recommend the restaurant.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2009

I stayed here for one night in September. What can I say - to be fair, if you have kids and want to be really close to an aquarium / planetarium / cinema, with lots of chain restaurants (Garfunkels etc) and don't mind about location, then it would be fine. If you are looking for refinement and quality then look elsewhere. The hotel is an old French house which was once in the country but is now part of a out-of-town development. To get to it you have to drive round the Ikea car park and then up a small lane. It is not a good introduction late in the afternoon. To be fair, the hotel is only a 4 minute walk to the end of a tram line which runs every 15 mins into the centre (takes 15 minutes) and runs late into the night. And to be fair, the owners are charming and tried their very best. But they need to modernise the hotel (it proudly says it was renovated in the 60s, but has not been touched since) and to market it to families who want to be really close to a themed out-of-town complex.

Tried to book in Arles or Nimes..they were full so we did the next best thing & stayed close by. Glad we did. People couldn't have been nicer at Demeure Des Brousses. Room was large with high ceiling. Very quiet the weekend we stayed. Staff were very accomodating for breakfast. It wasn't completely clear on various booking sites but all rooms are air conditioned (that worked well).
Tram made getting around town easy. Yes, nearby construction but that didn't bother us in the least. When we drove out to that area, very glad that signs for the hotel were posted. Montpelier is a fun place. Not aware that there is a Festival (Estival) every Friday night in the summer in the old center of the city, we just stumbled upon it. Kind of like a "Taste of Montpelier".We'd go back to that hotel and city in a minute.
