We were staying in this hotel for 4 nights in the mimosa pick season in February 2011. Booked by the TridAdvisor comments and recommendations we surely made a good move to book this hotel.
The room we book (standard double room as on the picture) fully corresponds to one of the hotel images. We initially booked only room, yet after arriving to the hotel and checking the area we took extra cost for kitchenette and it was really a good move.
There are few distinctive pluses of this hotel:
Location - it is well positioned not far from the sea and on the N7 rout from Massive Esterel - one of the most remarkable area of Cote D'Azur, worth discovering! Above all there is Geant Casino Hypermarket in walking distance, you would benefit for sure in case you have nothing against self cooking.
Hotel is clear seen from the road - no problem to find on the car. Parking is free, which is a great plus.
Rooms are rather big and very clean. You have fully separate entrance (small terrace - please be aware if you have some moving restrictions - there is no elevator - only stairs!). Kitchenette is well equipped, clean and pleasant to use.
Price of kitchenette is relatively nigh (ca +25% to the room cost) yet is similar of the breakfast for two persons (we had no breakfast - cannot be evaluated). Taking into account proximity of the shop - we consider kitchenette as a bargain at the end of the day:)
Room are equipped with TV, has a balcony - yet facing the road and other block buildings, rollers over the window - should be nice for the summer period, noise level is very very low (double windows are installed). Bath tub + bidet in WC make it very nice and pleasant for all bath funs like me.
Hotel receptionists, most likely the owner, very nice lady - speaking English (yet on demand were helpful to speak only French with us!), gave us some advises on the area and provide for the time of stay with the guide book to the region.
Free, yet somehow week Internet WIFI in the room, you need to log in downstairs in the reception first as back signal is very week to set first connection. Due to the same reason Skype is not working properly in the room
Some (very few) minuses found during the stay:
- The floor is stone made and cold for the period of the year we were in - i.e. take your slippers with you (was not considered by us). Heating is single source electrical heater in the room and one in the bath- so could be an issue - yet worked perfectly for us.
- The size of the sleeping pillow was a kind of small for me and too soft - was a kindergarten feeling - well it is of course taste relative
- There was no curtain on the bath tub - so shower taking was always an adventure - you have to hold it and take care not to spit the water out
Overall the hotel was a great place to stay for 4 nights during mimosa blooming in Provence - extremely nice choice - will do again and highly recommended.
