“A nice little place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

A good place to stay when visiting the area. Clean large enough rooms, comfortable we even had a little patio to ourselves. Staff were very helpful and spoke English. Plenty of off road parking in a quiet area of the suburb. Would definitely recommend if you are passing through.

It is about 1km from the actual village so make sure you're willing to walk or have a car. The rooms were fine, clean, so were the bathrooms. Breakfast for 8€ was average - rather eat breakfast elsewhere. If you're looking to just sleep here, it's a decent place to overnight. When we checked out they made a calculation error, everything was listed correctly but when adding the totals they overcharged 30€. Could be an honest mistake, but strangely enough this is the second time its happened to us in France!? Check your bills!

Booked this property and the good reviews definitely reflect the reality - this is a gorgeous property! It could easily be a 4 stars! Nice rooms, nice lobby decor, lovely swimming pool and amazing breakfast! This is highly recommended! (Only negative point is no A/C or fan in the rooms)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This is probably many people's dream Provencal hotel (though really a B+B). No restaurant but cold drinks are available any time. Small rooms, yes, but with mini balcony or terrace, and a lovely new walk-in shower room (separate lav). You could just totally relax here all day, on one of the loungers, by the pool, or picnic in the pretty gardens. Excellent breakfast, and the best yoghurt I've had anywhere, on a quiet terrace by the gardens. There are also plenty of books and magazines and papers available for guests to pass the time. It's a bit of a walk (15 minutes?) to St Remy centre, but a good way of walking off some of the breakfast calories! I'd have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone.

Nice hotel, suitable for exploring the sights of Provence. The hotel itself looks like your grandmas house in terms of decorations (little trinkets and knic knacks dispersed everywhere) but the rooms are fairly modern (warning they are carpeted). Each room has its own balcony which is a nice touch. The grounds them-self are sweet, everything in general could use a good rehaul but understandable for the spectacular price you pay (such a good deal for the south of france). The breakfast is also good and basic fair, at 8 Euros, you get some bread, cheese, meats, yogurt, fresh fruit, filter coffee, croissants, dried fruit etc.

A nice walk into chic Saint Remy (approx 10 mins) and some good walking around the hotel in the back (you can have a look at the beautiful homes). Note that the staff have limited to no english, so communication was a bit difficult. Overall a nice affordable hotel!

I had a nice 4 night stay at this hotel. As said before, it's located just on the outskirts of town and IMO, not within comfortable walking distance. I found the 3 people I came in contact with there very, very nice and willing to please. The lady who serves breakfast weekdays learned I hadn't acclimated to the time difference and asked each morning how I slept. She also brought me additional pots of coffee at breakfast each morning so I could make it through the day without much sleep (but plenty of caffeine to start). I don't think the three speak much, if any English. So, polish up on your French skills. My French isn't great but I did just fine with the basics.

I chose a second floor room with balcony as I knew I would be able to leave the doors open at night to cool off the room (no A/C in the hotel). All rooms have exterior shutters outside the doors, upstairs and down. I liked having my doors open at night and not having to close the shutters. I found the bed to be very, very comfortable. As a king though, it does take up much of the space of what are small rooms. There's only 1 chest of drawers & very narrow so not much fits in. I traveled solo and can't imagine how 2 people would store everything and navigate in the space with multiple suitcases along the walls. There is a small closet that's difficult to access due to a night table. The rooms would benefit from small night stands with drawers rather than the tables. I will say that the lighting in the bath was good and the bedside lighting excellent by French standards. I was actually able to read at night without straining my eyes. There are no TV channels in English. I had two electrical outlets in my room and none (but the shaver outlet) in the bath. I've smartened up over the years and now travel with a European extension cord so I was able to dry and style my hair in the bathroom. The bath tiled cubicle was large but no shower curtain. The floor did get a bit wet but not as bad as some other hotels I have stayed in. There was a wonderful, large shower head and also a hand held wand.

Breakfast was very standard, nothing other than the basics - cereal, two cheeses, two meats, juices, etc. I did think the French bread served was quite good - tasty, crusty. Coissants are also served in the bread basket delivered to your table. Beverages available also included chocolate chaud each morning. For cat lovers, there's a friendly house cat that shows up each morning at breakfast on the terrace and will happily sit in your lap or wait patiently by your feet for a morsel of food.

The public rooms, lobby and breakfast area were all quite attractive. The hotel and guest rooms are squeaky clean. As it had been a very cold spring and very cool early start to summer (the Mistral was still blowing), the pool water was too cold for me to swim but I did lounge poolside to read in the afternoons. The pool area is acutally larger than it looks in the pictures.

The only downside to my stay was lack of internet service. In the mornings I could get a low signal and in the evenings, none at all. My room was at the end of the corridor and likely had alot to do with lack of service. All in all, I had a very pleasant stay and would return. It's a very good value for money in an expensive area of Provence. I would have given the hotel five stars except for the small size of the rooms and the hotel's location not within walking distance (for me) of the town center.

We used Hotel l'Amandiere as a base for a couple of days to explore western Provence. It's based just outside the centre of St Remy and has a car park. The room was only 79 euros per night for two of us, which was excellent value for money - the room wasn't massive, but large enough to be comfortable. There was also a little balcony where you could sit. When we first arrived the toilet had a pretty bad smell - but I remembered another Trip Adviser reviewer commenting that this went away after a few uses - and, sure enough, it did and never returned.

The swimming pool at the hotel was lovely and refreshing after a day's sightseeing - pretty chilly but lovely and secluded towards the rear of the hotel and I was the only one in it which was great.

The staff were very friendly and seemed to appreciate our efforts to speak French.

The hotel is only about a 10 minute walk from the town centre - the walk isn't the most picturesque but pretty straightforward. The town itself is lovely - load of great restaurants and little shops. This probably isn't the cheapest resort in Provence - restaurants, for example, had prices on a par with London I think - but it is a wonderful and friendly little town which I can definitely recommend if you're wanting to tour the area.
