We re-visited the Hotel recently.
We were upgraded to another House to stay in (No 25/26) as the House we were supposed to stay was being renovated.
Much of the property remains unchanged although there is now some changes at the management, and the chef - which has its own positive attributes. The menu has largely been provencial, though with some special request, they were able to accommodate any special requests.
The Terrace above has been completed (it wasn't there at our last visit), and the sunrise view is breathtaking. Come every summer I hear, there is a jazz performance - which has been captured on CD and played in every room on arrival. Magical! (BTW, the CD can be purchased from Centrale at E10 a piece.)
The bathrooms have certainly kept up with times - and is a welcome. The beds as comfortable as they have always been.
The staff - now, that a special mention. Truly an exceptional team of staff - from the time we arrived in our large vehicle which they parked valet for us - to the check in, and to any other queries we may have of the property or Provence in general. Very helpful I must say.
If there ever was a difference to our visit, it is always the staff that made the difference.
Our only regret was that we didn't have enough time to stay and enjoy the property.
Also, we took the suggestion of a previous comment on dining at another restaurant (St Romaine) directly opposite the Hotel ..... we liked the sunset view better than what was served. Though, really, no comparison for what we pay.
