We stayed there for only one night on a short trip, and wished we could stay for much longer. We had a standard room without balcony, which was OK for size, very clean and with interesting decor; it was a family room, with 2 beds for children on a mezzanine. The bathroom was fine, a good size and again very clean.
The whole hotel was tastefully decorated and clean and tidy. The grounds were delightful and well-cared for, with several areas to sit; I sat for quite a while by the pool, sheltering from the hot sun under a parasol, with the fountains gently splashing nearby.
Dinner was a lovely experience. We chose to sit in the garden, where tables looked very attractive, especially when the candles were lit, with some on the covered veranda for those who preferred. The dinner price included a delicious melon aperitif, followed by a tasty amuse-bouche, with a delicious trio of scallops as starters, then a lamb shank, very tender and in a delicious sauce. This was followed by 3 tasty cheeses, and to finish there was a trio of desserts: strawberry cake, strawberries and pistachio ice cream. I'm allergic to strawberries, which I mentioned on booking; this was confirmed on checking in and I was served extra ice cream and raspberries.
Tap water was served at dinner, unlike many establishments which try to push expensive bottled water, and several wines were served by the glass, which I like a lot, as you can try to match the wine with the food without great expense or drinking too much! We enjoyed the unstuffy service; very relaxed but very nicely done.
The buffet breakfast was very good and very extensive; cereals and fruit juice, bread, croissants, pain au chocolat etc and cooked meats and cheeses, plus there was smoked salmon and bacon and scrambled egg (although they looked a little dry), plus coffee, tea etc.
We felt very relaxed during our short stay, and would recommend the hotel to anyone. It's close to St Remy, but not so close that the noise of the fun fair in town reached us, and it's a good base for visiting the area. We hope very much to visit again.
