Fig trees and flowers surrounded our patio and it would have been lovely to sit out on the patio and enjoy our lovely surroundings, but the neighbor who owns the villa that is attached to the hotel, directly in front of the patio rooms, was burning in his back yard for a day and a half while we were there and the smoke was blowing right into the patio rooms. The hotel staff said there was absolutely nothing they could do about it.
Also, we asked if we could leave a day early and were told that we would still be charged. My husband's allergies were really bother him.
I also agree with the comment on the breakfast. We were asked if we wanted a continental breakfast delivered to our patio in the mornings. We said certainly and then found out when we checked out that they had charged us 25 Euro. We knew there would be a charge, but that was too much.
Also, there is a sports field behind the hotel and we did have noise from that during the day. At night there was a carnival in town during our entire stay. It was not the charming St. Remy that I had pictured. The carnival didn't help but even without the carnival, the town didn't have the charm that I was expecting. I also didn't feel entirely safe walking from town to our hotel. Most likely due to the carnival there were a lot of local in town during the day and evening and the people there are generally poorer, or appear to be so.
I would recommend going to some of the beautiful towns along the wine road south of Dijon, like Beaune, verses a visit to St. Remy.
