I have recently booked for three nights at the Hotel Manoir in Apt. I have never visited Apt before and booked at the hotel based on the photos that I saw on the internet. I drove past the hotel on my way to a village where I had to attend a five day seminar before returning to Apt to stay in the Hotel Manoir Apt. However, when driving past the hotel I saw that this hotel was right in the middle of the industrial area of Apt. There was no transport from the hotel to Apt or any other place. There was also hardly a garden to invite you to the hotel. It was a real 'shocker' to see the environment of this hotel.
We phoned the hotel well in advance to cancel the booking but were informed that it is the policy of the hotel to charge for one night's accommodation. The same day as my phone call to the hotel, the full amount for the first night's accommodation was deducted from my bank account.
I did not make a scene of the situation but do feel that the photos on the internet are completely misleading. Nowhere does the website mention the fact that you are stranded at the hotel if you do not have your own transport. It also does not mention that the hotel is situated on the main road from Apt to Avignon.
My stay in Provence was absolutely wonderful. However, my experience with the Hotel Manoir Apt does leave a sour taste in the mouth.
