“two blokes on bikes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

a mate and i had cycled from Montpellier.when we first saw the hotel it looked like an old prison building, what a surprise when we turned into the garden and entered the building, loads of character and quirky rooms, the twin room was large the beds very welcoming after the bike ride, the breakfast was very good value, staff welcoming and friendly, definitely stay at the pont romain again soon.

I saw this hotel when we were staying in the area a few years ago and wanted to return to stay! The rooms are "old world" very high ceilings + shutters, slightly mis-matched furniture but altogether very charming. Unlike the previous reviewer, our shower worked very well and our room had a nice view over the garden + pool. Although it was very hot when we stayed, and the rooms are not air-conditioned, the room was cool and the fan was more than adequate for a comfortable sleeping environment. We arrived on a Tuesday, the night the restaurant was closed, but there are a lot to choose from within walking distance. We ate in the restaurant the second night and found the food excellent and very good value. The desserts are particularly fabulous! A great location, peaceful and friendly staff with the added bonus of a lovely pool, which seemed underutilised when we were there.

Went to this hotel for 1 night, booked online a room with a terrace for 1 night.. Once there, the room didn't have a terrace (which was important and why we booked). The reception could do nothing about it and said something about making it up somehow, but never did. Another problem was the shower, no hot water, only very cold water and the tv didn't work.
We didn't have breakfast (13 euros) but had a coffee, very expensive (6 euros) because i took it up to the room.
Otherwise the town of sommieres is very quaint and very enjoyable !

Garden terrace, swish of sophistication, tinkling of a little stream, delightful welcome. Things start well at the restaurant of the Pont Romain - then get better. The €39 dinner was the best value-for-money meal we've had in an age: inventive starters, briliantly cooked duck and lamb, and desserts that needed hanging in a gallery, such is their magnificent presentation. Don't taste bad, either. If you're in the region - between Nimes and Montpellier - I'd really not hesitate. I can't speak for the hotel, as we didn't stay there, but the restaurant provides an evening of quite memorable finesse.

The Guide Michelin had an attractive description, so we made a reservation.
Reception staff was very friendly, the twin room was spacious and stylishly furnished. There was free Wlan in the room. That is what I can say as positive.
The worst: toilet a n d bed had "leftovers" from the previous guest !
The restaurant is not as good as the menu promisses, the portions minuscule.
A bit of a tourist trap. Only time that I was disappointed on my France trip.

The hotel is in a lovely old building but the hotel itself is just old. Everything from the wooden floors, to the furniture is old, but not the charming type of old. The doors are the original doors with the big old keyholes that all the noise goes through.
We asked for a quiet room and they put us over the terrace where everyone sits outside to have dinner.
The breakfast was quite expensive considering we get a plain yoghurt, 3 mini pastries and a piece of bread.
The hotel does have a nice garden and pool and is well located in the cute village of Sommieres.
