We stayed here for 2 nights and were very impressed with the location within St. Tropez old town. Our window looked out onto beautiful cobbled narrow streets you were really taken to another place.
We didn't eat at the restaurant in the evening but enjoyed many drinks in the bar with canopies, the service was excellent. I regret not eating there at night, the lobster looked amazing.
I tried to dine at the restaurant for breakfast in the morning but ended the experience early without finishing my meal as my view and serene experience was spoilt by 3 separate loud bustling tour groups standing right in front of me spoiling my experience, staring at me and ruining my view. It's to be understood that the spot is popular and i don't own the rights to the view but i didn't go down for breakfast the next day, I like tranquility.
We couldn't get wifi connectivity for days whilst at the hotel. We reported it and the connectivity improved on the last day.
The building is so quaint and charming, you can easily get lost in the corridors. It's a suburb spot.
Loved the authentic crepe store opposite the hotel.
They were a bit militant, well one woman was about returning the room key at the reception desk each time i left the room which rubbed me up the wrong way it's my holiday and didn't want intensity. That was only one woman the rest of the staff were very friendly, the valet service was exceptionally good.
To sum up, great location with beautiful rooms I would stay here again and try that restaurant in the evening. Such a great view onto the ocean.
