Don't get fooled by the photos of this place like I did. There is new management, and they are extremely rude, inhospitable, and go so far as shouting at their guests. We were treated like unwelcome house guests. Rooms are shabby, small, and not worth the money. Seriously, stay someplace else. To summarise our disappointing experience: - Polite email communication,... More

We have stayed in lots of chain, corporate hotels but wanted something really different for this part of our holiday. This is a beautiful place to stay. The owners are clearly making significant improvements, adding modern style but retaining the charm of the building. The owners were very friendly and helpful throughout, the room was comfortable and the air conditioning... More

It is a very nice stopover, close to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, near the Rhone river. Positive points: Charming setting and house run by very friendly owners and personnel. Negatives: The pool was indeed still green (as suggested by other reviewers), the rooms are rather small, a bit noisy (when one family stood up at 5.30 am to continue their journey, most neighbouring...

I really wanted to like La Sommellerie. It's located outside the great wine town of Chateauneuf-du-Pape but the list of things that I didn't care for got too much to give this more than 2/5.

First time we stayed at this hotel. We booked the restaurant/overnight stay/brunch package for 2015 New Year's Eve. We were delighted by the delicious meal, the ambiance created by the management, and the dance party with good music. The personnel was very welcoming and accommodating. We very much enjoyed the brunch buffet on January 1. An experience to be repeated!
