Grand Prix Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Le Castellet
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed in 2 double rooms during 3 days in August 2012. The hotel has a lot of plus but missed to comply with some basic standards that apply to any hotel.
Acoustic insulation: big problem. Not so much with your neighbours room to room but from the rooms to the pool and the outside bar. It was very disturbing for us being with our kids to listen the WHOLE afternoon session of a couple (yes they were doing it in their room but everybody was listening).
Cleanliness: the decorator opted for some new kind of floors, not wood, not carpet, nor really ceramics, but something in between. Worst, the manager decided not to vacuum clean the rooms. In consequence I spotted a contact lens on the floor of our room the first they of our arrival which was still there 3 days later.
Breakfast is a typical Best Western one, good. Not a problem.
Le Castellet is a great place to visit and I highly recommend this place if you have already visited Cannes, Nice, St Tropez and Casis. The town is a little far away from the hotel but it only takes 10 minutes in car and it is really worth it.

Room Tip: No bath tub, if you are traveling with young kids, be prepare to shower them.

The Hotel is a Brand new one.
The facilities comfortable more to the American side than the European one.
All in all you need a rental car then you may use the advantages of this usual location.
If you're interesting in car racing you got the real place.
With a little bit of luck you'll fall on a weekend with a lot of action.

Room Tip: The in house restaurant is good for having dinner the same day you arrive. Prefer the inner sectio...

The Grand Prix hotel is a good value for the money in an area which is heavily toured. The Hotel is located conviniently if yoy want to tour around parts of Provence and the French Reviera.
The rooms are spacious and modern. The facilities of the Hotel, Bar, Restaurant, swimming Pool
are OK. The service is moderate as you can expect in Best Western Hotel. The Hotel is located near Racing Track, but the Track is not open to the public.

Excellent hotel with spacious clean rooms and communal areas, superb restaurant, excellent welcoming staff and well kept external grounds / swimming pool.
The restaurant / bar could easily be a stand-alone facility with the quality of service, decoration and food. Great external terrace for breakfast/drinks and evening meals....
Location near to circuit evidently means some plane noise / circuit noise.
Only thing we missed was perhaps some games/play area for kids - even a few swings and a slide in the grounds would have been good!
