We liked everything about this hotel. Open only a year, the building is completely renovated and decorated to a high standard. Everything about the hotel felt clean and fresh. This is partly due to the entire hotel being non-smoking and to the use of pavers rather than carpeting. We had a spacious room on the 3rd (top) floor which had a comfortable bed, nice linen, and a beautiful, modern bathroom. The room also had a minibar, safe, free wifi, English tv channels, and a motion sensor lights system. Secure parking is also free. Our double room cost 149€ a night which we found to be a good value for the level of comfort and services provided.
The decor throughout the hotel is a blend of modern and traditional. The stunning dining room is straight out of Architectural Digest. Equal attention has been paid to the grounds which contain mature trees, sculpture, a pool, a grape and wisteria arbor, and tables and chairs. When the weather is fair, breakfast can be taken outside. By the way, don't be put off by the 14€ breakfast they advertise. You can also chose a traditional continental breakfast for 7€ each. The elevator is primarily used for transporting your luggage. Be sure to let them know if you have mobility issues so they can accommodate you. Villeneuve-les-Avignon is just the other side of the river from Avignon (only 3 km. away) but offers a more tranquil setting for dining and sleeping. It's also an easier base for visiting other popular sites in the area. You'll find Steve, Sophie, and his dad, Serge, to be warm and attentive hosts. We highly recommend staying at Hôtel La Suite.
