My boyfriend and I made a horrible mistake to pick Hotel California among all other hotels in La Lavandou. It was a Friday evening when we checked in, and everything looked nice and normal. The receptionist was very sweet and quite concerned about our comfort. She gave us a nice room with a balcony, asked us if we had any... More

This family of mother and daughter will make it difficult for you to say goodbye. Its is a place that will rekindle the child in you. If looking for fancy, this is not the place. Ecclectic best decribes the atmosphere. Beautiful walls of bright color and hand painted murals brings your mind to a place of less stress and more... More

The location is good (although it is high up on a hill with a steep climb, so definitely not for everyone). I can't say anything else positive about the place. Only a few rooms have A/C. If you reserve one with A/C as I did, prepare to get one with a tabletop fan instead. Rooms are small and the building... More

We had a wonderful time in this nice and cosy hotel. Mother and daughter run the place in a very friendly way. We had a room at the back with a nice terrace with sunshine in the afternoon. The Town is literally 1 minute away as is the beach. For a two star hotel, you get a lot. Free wifi,... More

After staying in a few 2* hotels previous to my arrival in Le Lavandou I wasn't expecting too much! I arrived early and this seemed no problem at all. The room was very bright and clean with a modern wet room bathroom. Even though I didn't have a sea view, being able to see the blue sky and sea of... More

We stayed there in very early February 2014. We had to make an emergency trip to Le Lavandou to sort out our caravan which had been affected by a flash flood. Booked it online at a rate that was just a little above the prices Formule 1 charge. Even though it was out of season we received a warm welcome... More

A warm welcome, clean room with sea view, shower that works (and toiletries), free wifi, free parking, an easy walk into Le Lavandou for the port, beach and good choice of restaurants, what more can you ask at such a fair price! We shall use again

For a 2 star hotel this place is very comfortable. Location is good and we loved our seaview balcony room with retro furnishings. It would have been good to have mini bar / fridge and coffee making facilities in the room. Other than that our stay was most pleasant.

Had a pleasant two night stay here in La Lavandou in this chic retro hotel. It's straight from the 50's baby with maybe a slight makeover in the 70's. We chose a sea view with balcony which had a nice view for a morning brekky or evening vino. Location is 3-4mins from main waterfront and 6 mins to main beach... More
