(Should have written this two years ago, sorry!) The setting is wonderful and the place is simple and charming, but what sets the Hotel des Poetes apart is its owners. Kristel and Florence cannot do enough for you, making you feel more like a friend staying over than a hotel guest. From recommending a - magical - restaurant (table under an olive tree!) on our first night in Beziers to pointing out all the things we might enjoy, to arranging a night in another hotel (and bringing over a book we'd forgot under the bed!) when they were full, to getting us free bikes to go to the beach (and being cool about the fact that we enjoyed it so much we came back after midnight and had to leave the bikes in the foyer) to just their evident dedication to their jobs as hostesses and how much they care about how people feel about their stay, the two ladies are both (and the rest of their staff) just awesome. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Pick this one, you will not regret it; it will likely make your holiday. A jewel. Now don't start thinking up things for them to do, 'cause they work really hard enough as it is, but it's a measure of how seriously they take their hospitality. We had an extra ticket to a concert (Pink Martini) and it made us really, really happy to give it to them, as a token of our appreciation for one of the, if not the, best hotel stays my best friend and I have ever experienced. It's almost a case of "are the guests nice enough to deserve a hotel like this?" Twelve thousand stars if I could award them.
