“Very charming”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

The room, the garden, the breakfast, were all delightful. The hotel is very good value, the 8 euro breakfast is better than most French breakfasts, there's private parking, it's an easy walk into town, the staff (? owners) seem helpful. We only stayed one night but it would be fine for longer. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are a little more expensive but worth it for the view.

The staff were very friendly, happy to help with our special requirements as we have a baby we needed boiled water for feeds etc. The hotel is spotless and far better than I expected for 2 stars. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. The weather was a bit cold when we were there so didn't use the pool but it looked lovely. Also it's only a pleasant short walk from the town. Great place.

Only tiny thing is it would have been good to have a kettle in our room but thats only a minor thing.

Room Tip: South side room better as view of pool instead of car park

Great location for pied-a-terre when visiting Provence, within walking distance of downtown Saint Remy-de-Provence. The grounds are well maintained and relaxing. We stayed for several nights.

As others have mentioned, cleanliness is taken to the extreme including moving our suitcases from the floor (to shelves where we couldn't open them) to allow for vacuuming. We asked that they be left on the floor during the remainder of our stay and they complied. We were not allowed to have any food or drink in our room, which meant we could not buy any of the wonderful foods offered at Provencal markets unless we ate them before returning to the room.

A hotel rather than a B&B, we were charged for breakfasts separately.

We were required to leave our room key on a readily accessible pegboard while away from the hotel; this concerned us because anyone could take our key without the knowledge of the staff, since there were brief occasions when the front desk was not manned while they served guests.

Also as others have mentioned, the hosts were pleasant but not warm and congenial.

Recommended, with the above caveats.

Stayed with my wife for a couple of days. One of the nicest small hotels we have visited in France. Very quaint, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Would highly recommend, even if you are thinking of staying in a 4 star resort.

Room Tip: We stayed in one facing the gardens which was very nice

I will start writing this review by saying that I did not stay there myself, but I feel like my amazing experience is worth sharing with those looking for a place where hospitality comes first.
I booked this hotel for a couple friend who where travelling through Europe. They were looking for beautiful and relaxing surrounding, and when reading the review, I figured this would be the place of their choice. But upon their arrival, the manager announced that he had had to cancel the room, because the credit card left for deposit had been identified as fraud... These things can happen when you travel abroad and don't tell your bank!
Without a second thought, he booked my friends in another hotel near by, personally drove them there, and came back in the morning to pick them up!
My friends then had an amazing stay at the hotel, and couldn't stop but praising the service, the quality of the rooms, and the beautiful view from their room...

All is perfect in this 'better than a 2-star' hotel that's about a 10-minute walk from the center of town. The decorating could do with some updating but as mentioned in other reviews it is immaculately clean and everything functions. It felt like the right size of hotel for us... not a box of a room in a tower. The terrace, garden and pool are spacious and allow for great views of the Alpilles. A very quiet neighborhood.
That said ... while the reception is efficient it is not warm. Even when I told them how much we liked staying at the hotel and how wonderful things were, I didn't even see a glimmer of pleasure. I can only begin to imagine how fatiguing it must be to work in hospitality, but there was no sense of personal connection during our stay. In this way it felt just the same as staying in a 300 room resort on some beach like Hurghada.

Room Tip: a room on the first floor across from the rooftop terrace.

Really impressed with this hotel: very, very clean, fantastic pool area and gardens, lovely terrace, peaceful location but within walking distance of St Remy. Although the service was a little luke warm (probably due to my floundering French!), the owners really care about their hotel. Excellent value for money in an area where accomodation is generally expensive. Can't wait to return.
