“very good with plenty of buts...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

first - you have to remember this place is cheap. about as cheap as it gets in france.
both the rooms and the food/bar.

second - the pool is fantastic. really fantastic. clean. lovely atmosphere.

third - the staff are really lovely

but...

the rooms are a bit old fashioned and can only be described as a bit dingy. shame because plenty of the stuff could be fixed easily with a lick of paint.

we had originally booked the outside bungalow. i wouldnt stay in it - was a tiny prefabricated building with no toilet door. poor.


all told the good bits are very good. the bad bits are there but wont kill you. i would say that the pool alone makes up for most things.

Room Tip: dont take a bungalow

Average place The food is fine and the quantity is satisfying. We tried different courses and everything was ok. A little bit out priced for the quality as most of the places in the area. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Swimming pool was the right size for me. Food was good. I loved it so much. There is a free pool table and the bar is excellent. It has got useful helping. Alot of mosquitos. There was a good boulangerie, post office and autobus stop

I spent 2 lovely days with my husband in the Hostellerie de la Source. The staff was helpful and very welcoming. Our room was a bit small but nicely decorated and clean. We had the chance to taste the local specialities in the restaurant and it was delicious. We only regret one thing is that cause of the weather we were not able to enjoy the nice garden and the outdoor swimmingpool. We are looking forward to coming back next summer with the rest of the family!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

In a small village near Arles (during the night the hotel is the only illuminated spot), the Hostellerie promises more than what actually offers. It has a nice restaurant (very relevant in the website), but a poor accommodation in a sort of prefabricated house in front of the swimming pool. It was dump and unkempt. The bathroom had no door but just a tent, which was very unpleasant considering that it was a double room!The staff was quite nice (especially the men who worked at the swimming pool, who helped us with our broken car), but the reception was often unattended. Arles is beautiful and we had a pleasant stay, but next time we will try to find something better for the same price.

Stayed as part of a group for an entire week. The staff were amazingly helpful, outstandingly friendly and treated us like members of the family. Nothing was too much trouble The food was exceptional and we were loathe to leave. The accomodation is typical of a 2* French hotel so bear that in mind if you go as rooms did vary in spec. WOudl deefinitely recommmend nad woudl love to go back.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2010

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. To our disappointment, the staff at the reception do not speak English (and we don't speak French). We therefore had to help ourselves with finding a laundry in the city and the sightseeing programmes in the region.
The hotel is about 8 mins drive from the city center, located beside a busy road where one can hear the traffic as early as 7am. We are late risers and were shocked EVERY morning at the anxious knock at the door between 10 and 11 by the cleaning ladies wanting to make our rooms. The above shall prove to be no problems for those French speakers and early birds.
Our room smelled of drains from the bathroom and its floor squeaked. Nevertheless, the room was spacious and very clean.
We didn't book the breakfast at the hotel but bought our croissants at the bakery around the corner. Do pay a visit to the restaurant as it offers surprisingly good food and nice atmosphere.
