Reviewed September 2, 2013

We stayed here as a stop off on the way to Provence. We booked a park room which was lovely with huge windows overlooking the river and park below. The room was very nice with a huge bed, and the bathroom had a large bath and separate walk in shower. The reason this hotel hasn't receive a 5 is because the service at check in was ok but not 5 star, we were given a spa view room initially, and were not asked if we needed help with our bags. Also, if you are choosing this hotel to use the pool, be warned that there is an additional charge for this €20 per room per day! Breakfast (which was very average) was also additional at €21 per person...this adds up fast! Le Bistro restaurant was very good indeed. I did use the spa, but it looked amazing.

Room Tip: Book a park room

Large room with view toward the spa. Air contioned, extremely comfortable large bed, good bathroom with 'walk-in' shower and separate tub. Large flat screen TV, kettle for coffee and tea. Bathrobes to be used for spa, free slippers for spa as well. Reception for correct. Feared the worst reading another review in which receptionist apparently did not appreciate 'underdressing'. We were certainly not up to 5 star standard after a long hot car drive but no problem. We did not use the restaurant for dinner nor breakfast. If we have to say something negative it would be the large spider dropping slowly from ceiling one evening, but that can happen anywhere. The window is difficult to open. Location is ideal, very close to the park next to lake/river as well as to the old beautiful centre.

Room Tip: Our room on 6th floor with view to Spa was excellent

The Vichy Spa Hotel Les Celestins is a great retreat to relax in a quiet, classy and extremely customer friendly environment. The Spa has original offerings and the staff is adorable, try the Vichy shower special, it will leave your skin smooth as a baby. The Hammam has a great fun ambiance with its blue stars and mini room at the end. The icy mini pool for your feet gives a very nice relaxing sensation. But our favorite is the Breakfast, the scramble eggs are so tasy, 4 or 5 different fresh fruit juices are available, smoked salmon, dozens of cheese and real croissant baked by the chef. You will love it! Finally it is very well located, 2-minute walk to the Opera, the main square with its beautiful planted promenade, awesome book store and the casino for those who like it, but also 2-minute walk to the river on the other side where you can go sailing if you prefer nature. Overall we highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Try the rooms with a view on the Park, it has a great light in the morning!

It was an amazing experience worth the price. The spa services, restaurants, and hotel room (spacious as was the bathroom) will not disappoint!! A wonderful park is next door, perfect for a morning run along the river or an evening stroll. The hotel is well placed making it easy to visit the city. I plan on returning soon:))

Although this superb hotel is central to Vichy it faces directly onto some beautiful botanical gardens and the river. Great spa facilities, food and great service - ask for English brochures if youi don't speak French - they are not in the rooms automatically! Vichy itself is a classical historic French city - one of the most beautiful we have seen, with great architecture.

Room Tip: Some rooms on the third floor have private patios overlooking the gardens. The higher up rooms have...

First of all, nice city, perfect park, the air is unbelievable, birds tweeting, singing... Good hotel, but less then 4+ stars!!! The water in the swimming pool was 25 besides 30 (that was announced), breakfast is something unbelievably terrible!!! - pork and milk))) - even boiled eggs were deficit. But the butter with OMEGA 3...
Room service - definitely not bad, I could even say good!
In the city (hotel as well) lunch begins at 11.00-13.30 and then pls wait till 19.30. Supermarket close at 20.00 and work with a special schedule.
Spa is good but kids are not allowed even to enter the gym...
My own conclusion is that if you travel with 2,5 man this place is inconvenient totally.
