We stayed here in April 2010 for a couple of nights for a holiday.
Upon arrival we were yelled at which we found to be a very disappointing start. the reason we were yelled at as we were meant to arrive in the afternoon and ended up arriving around 10pm. I understand that this could be annoying, however we did send Marie an email during the day that we had to catch a later train as the one we anticipated catching was fully booked. We were told upon arrival that we had ruined her evening plans. So not a good start.
We were then taken to our room was quite small, smaller than we thought based on the photos but I guess photos can be deceiving sometimes. the room barely had enough room for our 2 medium sized suit cases so it was interesting figuring out how to stack them. The bed was comfortable though.
The location of the B&B is ok. i think it was about a 20 minute walk to the wall of the old Avignon. the area seemed safe and it was quite straight forward to get to and from the B&B.
The breakfast was delicious although it was small. We have stayed in many B&B's which have had huge breakfast choices, but perhaps the French don't place much importance on breakfasts. tea, coffee, juice and some bread and jam.
Apart from getting yelled at when we arrived, there were 2 rather disappointing issues I wish to disclose. Firstly, we asked where we could wash our clothes and she pointed us towards a laundromat. that would have been fine if not the fact that when we got home we discovered there was actually a washing machine hidden in the shared bathroom that wasn't for guests. considering it is the bathroom for guests, you would expect you could use it. anyway, that is what we believe...
Secondly, and most importantly, (i find this very poor business practice), she complained to us that she got a bad review on Trip Advisor and requested that we write a positive review for her on the spot. At the time we were on our way out for a tour and also we didn't have an account with trip advisor so we said we would think about it.
Our stay in Avignon was disappointing. We would not stay here again.
