“Definitely not an hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

As matter of fact the room and the bathroom offer no comfort at all and are not clean. The owners were nice and the breakfast was reduced to the minimum even if of good quality. Impossible to relax in this place and not even to sleep properly. I am sure the owners are slowly doing some refurbishment ( the dining room was recently refurbished) but at the moment this place should not be open to the public.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere. Valberg is a bit further but there hotels are much better.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We are two middle aged men who travel to photograph wildlife. We stayed at the Hotel La Valliere for 2 nights in July and didn't expect an amazing experience but we didn't expect Ants, around 1 to every 2 feet of floorspace, water leaking out of the bottom of the sink when in use and from the shower tray also, No Curtains, the beds were very soft and not good if you have a bad back. The restaurant was rather basic but nice and the waitress was very nice although when asked for a menu were told this was set and was starter - Cold Peppers in oil followed by main - Pork Stuffed Vegatables, desert - Blueberry Tart with a small scoop of Ice Cream (which I enjoyed). When I asked the price considering this was the only menu available the waitress had to check and came back with €18. I though this was quite expensive for what we had and felt the food had been pre-prepared.

All in all a rather low grade experience possibly because we were 2 men who weren't dressed smartly as we had been in the mountains photographing all day (although this should not make a difference in my opinion).

I can only comment on my experience but would stay somewhere else perhaps in Guilaumes next time. It is worth the extra travel time if you are visiting the Col des Champs.

Stayed July 2014

La literie hôtelière traditionnellement ferme ,et le bloc sanitaire de cette chambre sont neufs. Les volets occultants repeints à neuf. Malgré l'arrivée tardive des clients, sans préavis, et en toute fin de service, le menu de la 1/2 pension leur a été proposé et servi. Menu dont le prix hors taxe ,comme celui des chambres ,est inchangé depuis l'an 2000 (cf guide M). Ce soir là, en entrée froide, poivron doux à l'huile d'olive , plat chaud ,petits farcis niçois,spécialité local fait maison, tarte du jour. Nos tarifs sont affichés à l'entrée ,sur le site web de l'hôtel etc...,le prix forfaitaire de la 1/2 pension est bien de 23,50, (menu:entrée+plat+dessert et petit déjeuner) à partir de 2 nuitées. le menu du jour à 20 euros, les plats de la carte entre 9 et 14 euros. En cas de doute, nous sommes là pour vous renseigner. Dans le sud nous sommes de tradition oral. Notre petit hôtel rural n'est pas parfait, mais nous investissons chaque année pour le rendre encore plus agréable.Borne de charge pour voiture électrique, mise aux normes, nouvelle chaudière basse consommation, rafraîchissement des chambres et certaines salles d'eau , nouveau salon, etc...
Bonne continuation à nos deux aventuriers en quête de nature sauvage.

A room for 55 euro, what can you expect? Well, no flat screen television, nor a very large bed, but loads of charme come with the property and the reception is welcoming. The owner cooks himself and makes wonderful dishes. he only offers a limited menu, but that guarantees that the food is fresh and in season! There is not much around the hotel, except for a lot of peace and quiet. This hotel is certainly worth a stay!
