“Pleasant Oasis”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

You may be alarmed by the location of this hotel... on the edge of town, close to a hospital and a Crematorium; but the Hotel Du Lavarin manages to create its own atmoshere of calm and tranquillity. The garden is not large, but skilful design and long-established trees conjure the feeling of a private resort from an unpreposessing site. A pool provides welcome relief from the sun and there is an attractive loggia in which to dine. Food is adequate; the warmth of service outstanding. Facilities are rather limited, but rooms are spacious and well-designed. Our room (145) had a small terrace overlooking the garden which made a pleasant location for reading and snoozing. Convenient (free) parking is a bonus. Recommended!

Myself and my 3 teenage children stayed in a family room at the hotel for 6 nights in August. We travelled from UK on the Eurostar. The station is around 15 mins from the TGV station.The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. The grounds and pool are more spacious than they appear on the website. As most people were out and about during the day, we often had the pool and garden to ourselves. The breakfast has a very good selection of fresh fruit, pastries, meat and cheeses. smoked salmon, eggs. preserves etc. We had dinner at the hotel just once, and it was good quality, but the menu a little limited. There is a fridge in the room, which is for use of guests which is useful if you have children or are staying for a couple of days. There are no restaurants or shops in walking distance of the hotel.Bus journey into the town centre took around 20 mins and 1 euro each trip, there is a limited service on Thurs and Sun evening. Multiple trip tickets are available from tobacconist shops. Our room had a double and single bed and sofa bed. We put the sofa bed away during the day, and the room was sufficient in space. The room had a separate bathroom and toilet which was really great. the hotel was very modern and fresh and clean. I recommend staying there.

This hotel was a pleasant surprise during our trip in France. Different from other Best Western hotels I stayed before. It was indeed like oasis. Big pines, beautiful territory, quite place allows to feel like being in countryside. It was enjoyable to have a breakfast under the old olive tree in the garden after swimming in the pool. The rooms are not very big, but comfortable enough, very clean; equipped with a kettle and a small fridge. Good choice of meal at breakfast, including fresh fruits and you can make a fresh juice by yourself. Good choice, especially for those who travel by car.

About a ten minute drive from Old Town Avignon, this Best Western is located in a quiet, leafy neighborhood not far from a hospital. Once one drives through the gate into the walled compound, it is as if one has left the city. Ample free parking space is available within the gated, secure compound.

The 2-story facility appears rather new or newly redone, everything being spotless. Check-in was conducted by a charming young English speaker, wo, absent a lift, was kind enough to take our luggage upstairs for us.

Our executive room #158 came with a large deck overlooking the beautiful grounds with pool and mature trees. Unfortunately for us, the Mistral was blowwing full force and use of the deck or the garden oasis was thusly denied us. The room was ample in size with a king bed, a side table with two comfortable upholstered chairs, safe, and a fridge for your use. The tiled floor room had just about everything except for a desk. The bright and airy modern bath had a very nice shower, and a W/C in its separate enclosure. It as was the room was spotless. It was super quiet at night and sleep came easy in the great bed.

An on-site restaurant with a nice menu selection makes it easy to leave the car parked and eat in-house. The dining room looks out onto the green oasis of the backyard. The food served pleased our palate. The breakfast spread provided an adequate selection with all one would expect.

All in all, this was easily among the very nicest Best Western hotels we encountered in our travels around the globe.

It is newly renovated updated and very attractive. It is not in downtown Avignon but that was fine by us since we had a car and did not want to contend with finding parking. As it turns out parking is not a problem in Avignon. Still we were happy with the lovely bathroom shower and nicely appointed room in the new addition.

We took a double room for 2 nights at the start of our trip and were not disappointed.
Staff were incredibly friendly and check in lasted all of a minute. The rooms were small but that was expected and we only needed it for sleep. A quiet cold water pool surrounded by a leafy garden, perfect for chilling out. Free fast wifi, local bus stop outside oh and yes pay the €14 for the all you can eat breakfast, worth every cent!

Only negative was noisy guests having a conversation at 2am in corridor.

Highly recommended!

The hotel is roomy and comfortable, with an attractive poolside dining area. The staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Our main complaint was the silly scheme for controlling lights in the room. You must keep your room key card in a wall reader in order for the lights to work. The lights all go out a few minutes after you pull out the card. Late night access to the parking area requires getting out of your car and unlocking the gate with your room key. The WiFi arrangement is maddening, with a separate code required for each device, and a 24 hour renewal interval. Apart from these nuisance items, it is a good place to stay if you are driving in this region.

Dear Sir,

thank you for your comment. please find above our response.

It is true that to action the electricity in the room you need to keep your room key card in a wall reader, except for one plugg which is located on the desk to recharg your mobile or top even. This information is written in the room directory.
This installation has been made to save the electricity and save our planet. It happends that televisions or lights are still on even if the guest is out of the room.
We don't need to spend energy for nothing.

In France, the law preserv the confidentiality of what you do on your device. That is the reason why we need to provide one confidential code to surf on internet. We are supposed to answer to the authority on who was on internet for safety reason and preserv against terrorism.
also, if we do not give you a code, your connexion will be not safe and hackkers will be able to steal all the information which are on your device.

During the night the parking is closed and saved. Guests who are leaving their suitcases in their cars on the parking expect to find their cars and lugages the day after. Our guests fill more confident.

I hope you anderstand our position,

Best regards
