“Beautiful view, clean rooms, good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Grand Soliel Natchez (new name: Vue Hotel) was wonderful. It is located atop a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The room was spacious, clean and bright with a fabulous view of the Mississippi River. A microwave and refrigerator are included in most rooms. The staff was very friendly. We had dinner and breakfast there,the food was excellent both times. The staff
couldn't have been nicer, keeping everything filled for the hungry crowd. We would recommend
this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Higher floors have excellent view of the Mississippi and the windows had screens on them so you coul...

Upon arriving we were greeted by a very unpleasant Front desk lady. I asked for a luggage carrier (bell hop cart) and was told, "We got one but you have to find it if you wanna use it"! After we got situated in our room i noticed there was not enough towels or any shower caps. I called down to the front desk only to be told that the towels would take two hours to get to my room & that they don't provide guest with shower caps.

I must say the Location was Great!! The rooms were average in size & comfort. The TV's were old and outdated "hump back" tube screens. The pool was clean but a bit small for a hotel of this size. The continental breakfast was egg omelet, biscuits, oatmeal. bacon, ham & turkey.

In my opinion, the price was not a value because the quality of service from housekeeping and the front desk was very poor. To some it all up i would not stay here again..

The staff are all very polite. The view is beautiful. The rooms clean. It's a very old hotel that is in the process of being updated. But it's just ok. The Sunday brunch is very good. But the information said the grill is open on Sunday's. But it's not. But that's Natchez. If they don't feel like being there they just don't open.

We went this last weekend. To our surprise, the hotel was really nice, the rooms were spacious. The staff were exceptional. I have to agree with the "hidden Jewel" comments by other individuals. While we did not find a lot to do in Natchez, the hotel did not disappoint. Planning on going back for the 4th of July with the kids to watch the fireworks on the beautiful Mississippi River. The view of the river from the dining room is just exceptional. Definitely a place I would go back to for a quick get away with my husband.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are three years old, the rooms in the annex are older but seem to hav...

We were directed to the Great Soliel (which had changed its name to Vue Hotel & Restaurant only a day or two before). There is a small sign on the drive up past the Best Western and the exterior looked like a place that had been let go. Having travelled some distance and looking for a place to stay and with some misgivings we decided to go inside just for a peek. We stepped inside the front door and the difference was amazing. The receptionist (a fellow Kiwi) welcomed us warmly. The whole interior of the premises looked as it had been completely refurbished. Everything was new and clean. Our room on the third floor had a view of the Mississippi River as well as being spacious and bright. The room, bedding and facilities were all spotless. The only downside was the complimentary plated breakfast, which was plain and dry, even though there was great view of the bridge and river from the dining room and the service was very good. The hotel is just across the highway from the Natchez Visitors Centre and easy to get for an orientation to the attractions in Natchez

A microwave and refrigerator are included in most rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Vue restaurant had great food and a fabulous view of the Mississippi River. The accomodations and ammenities were so nice we extended our stay. We definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to returning again. (There were no signs showing the name of the hotel on the building or at the foot of the hill leading up to the hotel - Don't worry, signs with the hotel's new name (Vue Hotel) are in the works and should be up soon.)

A real hidden jewel! The room was clean, bright, and cheery. Nice to have fridge and micro in room. The views of the Mississippi River bridge were stunning. The staff was great and friendly. The Vue restaurant was fabulous. Food was excellent and table was surrounded by glass overlooking the River. Can't wait to go back!
