A great hotel with all the paintings, and some marvellous receptionists. Also some really awful snob waiters and an insane perceptions of how the Internet works. They say that they have free internet, but you have to go either to the hotel reception or to the bar and get tickets with codes and passwords. Tickets on max two hours at the time. I have often been given tickets on just one hour when I've asked for two - and I speak fluent French.
Outside you don't know what's restaurant and what's bar tables. If you approach a waiter from the restaurant when you just want something to drink, you will be told that someone from the bar will be with you shortly. You will sit there and wait for half an hour and wonder if you are invisible. Then you will go inside to the bar and order something at the counter, and your glass will have very little in it, and it will be expensive. You will still feel that the surroundings are so amazing - I have no words for explaining how great the art is - that it's almost worth the hassle.
The rooms are a bit rough, but OK. Clean enough. AC dated, but works! A must in Collioure in summer. The restaurant is average to average minus. When I live in Collioure I never go there.
I asked them once why they have such a stupid system for the internet when they claim to have free Wi-Fi for everyone. "Can you imagine, Madame, how it would be if our internet was completely open? We would only have internet guests here!" - Uhhh? Café Sola half a minute away has open, good, free Internet without the stupid code ticket system. Don't eat lunch or dinner at Sola. But do go there and have breakfast and drinks and enjoy nice waiters, instead of the snobs at Templiers.
