“Friendly staff, good facilities, away from center”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We stayed one night, travelling through Avignon.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms were OK.
Nice pool and excellent breakfast buffet.
You need a car or use taxis to get in town and enjoy the old city.

Very frustrated hotel director: my son made some dust marks on a wall in the garden To calm the director which was very agressive, I propose to make a declaration to my insurance. But in the evenening of the 15/8, director blocked our rooms to blackmail me and to force me to give my credit card. He claimed more than 1600€. He had no trust in other country's insurance companies and even after obtaining several guarantees from my wellknown insurance company, he kept on asking documents to delay our departure (more than 3 hours) without speeking of the stress from the night before. Certainly not recommended for traveling with childeren.

I read your comment and regret this situation. However, you booked 2 double bedrooms and you check in, you were 8, 3 adults and 5 children 10 to 17 years. We have executive rooms, larger and therefore more suitable to your needs. During your stay, your kids left partially unsupervised did not find anything to do better than playing climbing the wall of the property which is very dangerous.
When we perceive then it was too late, the wall was significantly degraded.
Our hotel is not a holiday club

You admitted the facts verbally but refused to assume the responsibility stating the claim with your insurance company. Unfortunately, we had to call the police. Finally you made a claim to your insurance liability stretchers and acknowledge in writing. It is only after you have completed this step that the police let you leaving in Belgium. .
I am sorry for this situation.

Friendly and welcoming staff, our room was clean and tidy and well appointed. We stayed for one night. Hotel was good 3o minute walk to main centre. Staff did not recommend walking back at night so allow taxi money when booking this great wee hotel.

Room Tip: Allow extra money for taxi

We stayed here on two occasions a week apart as the start /finish of a trip in Provence. The rooms are small, but clean and updated as is the bathroom. The lack of size of the rooms is made up for by the public areas. The large tree shaded grounds and pool area are very nice.
Typical European breakfast that we have found in our travels. The only drawback to this hotel is it's location, it is not located in the beat part of town. (that being said I'm not sure where the best part of Avignon is). We were cautioned by the staff not to walk certain streets.There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which we caught the bus into the old town and felt quite safe doing so during the day. We took a taxi back in the evening which can be a very trying experience. There is only one taxi company in Avignon. It took one and one half hours to get a cab to pick us up at the restaurant after dinner, despite repeated calls by the proprietor to the cab company. Then on the day of our departure, on a Sunday morning, the taxi arrived almost one hour late causing us to miss our train. This despite reserving the taxi the night before, confirming in the morning and repeated calls by the hotel. No explanation or apologies by the driver once he arrived. Not the hotel's fault but something to keep in mind if you have tight travel connections. The staff was excellent.

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and we enjoyed it very much. We ordered the superior room which was great. The superior rooms are completely renovated and its only 10 euros more than the standard room, but the difference is huge.The rooms are not big, but beautiful and you have everything you need. Although the hotel is not is the center of the city, if you have a car it's not a problam, it takes only 5 minutes by car. It is very convenient for exploring provance. The people at the front desk were very nice and welcoming. The garden is beautiful with a nice pool. Eating breakfast in the garden was wonderful (also a little expensive, but good). We reccomend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: on the first floor, because there is no lift and rooms that look to the pool. The superior rooms.

We stopped here on our visit to Avignon. Modern, with clean rooms, comfortable beds and lots of parking. It is a little bit out of Avignon. We drove into Avignon as I needed to keep my energy for walking around Avignon. We decided to stay at the hotel for dinner, and we were very pleasantly surprised with the food. It was excellent. Service was great as well. Would recommend this hotel.

The Best Western hotel is modern and spotlessly clean, has a lovely garden and pool and is walking distance (about 40 minutes) from the old city plus it serves a reasonable breakfast. That should be enough to give this hotel a big tick. But there is more - and that is the staff:

I lost - or possibly had my iPhone pick-pocketed between Marseille and Avignon and Marie Pierre at reception could speak English, was empathic, helpful and efficient in making phone enquiries and reports on my behalf. When our taxi failed to arrive the next day to take us to the station, Marie with no fuss took us in her own car! That is exceptional service and very much appreciated.

If there is any negative about the hotel it is that the room is a little small, but this is basically offset by its modern design, and the pleasant ambience of the hotel and helpful staff. It is very easy to recommend this hotel.
