Prior to booking this hotel I had some reservations, given some of the other reviews posted. Subsequent experience has made me even more doubtful of the judgements of those who might be sleeping in the room nextdoor.
We found the Relais to be a very well placed hotel and the staff, without exception, to be extremely welcoming and keen to assist. The rooms have a style not found in standard chains, it was very quiet and the garden/ restaurant setting was quite delightful. There is a hot tub too, but my doubts about the nextdoor neighbours precluded any closer encounter.
Breakfast is a bit of poolside deckchair scramble and more could be done to improve this I'm sure. The wifi is also variable, possibly due to the downloading next door, but this should be improved. The lounge on the third floor is another pleasant retreat and the XIII decor still looks fresh enough. It's not the cheapest but it certainly was very pleasant and relaxing and outperforms many others.
