I cannot believe the post I have just read above this one complaining about what we found to be a tranquil, beautifully designed hotel run by an an extremely lovely couple with great staff who did their upmost to make sure we had a pleasant stay.
We stayed in the Bourgogne room for three nights on 18th July this year - 3 nights in this relaxing haven was not enough! This was the first port of call on our honeymoon, and what an amazing place for it to begin. Firstly we were greeted by Elena, who was lovely, she showed us our beautiful room (four poster bed, free standing bath, VERY clean, and very stylishly decorated), on the mantlepiece was a lovely hand-made card congratulating us on our wedding. She then spent a long time telling us all the good places to go and recommending places to eat in Perpignan (all her recommendations were spot on).
Before heading out for dinner we relaxed outside in the gardens which were so well looked after and dare I say it again, incredibly beautiful. As we sat there we couldn't beleive how lucky we were to be staying in such a lovely place, and also what amazing value for money it was.
The location is perfect, easily in walking distance of the beautiful old town, but far enough away that when you are relaxing around the incredibly clean pool area (with lovely wooden sunbeds - attention to detail here was superb) or sitting in the gardens you are not disturbed by any noise at all. We also had no problem with noise from any other guests in their rooms and the hotel was full at the time we were there. I am shocked at what the previous post says about the noise, we heard nothing and while we were there we spoke with two other couples who both loved the place as much as we did - one so much that they were returning there at the end of their holiday - something we wished we had done as well - when we returned to Perpignan to fly back to London it was hard not to go back!
And the breakfasts!! They were out of this world, so delicious and so beautifully presented - we felt as though we were treated so well while we were here.
La Tour Applollinaire is a fantastic, romantic, tranquil and beautiful place to stay, we will never forget it and have been raving about it to our friends and family since we got back.
I can't recommend the place enough. I think the guy above secretly feels the same and just doesn't want everyone else to find out about this little gem down in the far South- West corner of France!!
We will definitely be returning.
