“Couldn't have been more accomodating, friendly and helpful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2010

I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Cassis. My girlfriend and I actually traveled to Cassis back in May and had a fantastic time. We chose the France Maguy hotel as or first choice was already fully booked and the hotel appeared to be great value and in a convenient location. We weren't dissappointed!

Due to heavy traffic and my poor sense of direction we arrived a lot later than expected and the managers of the hotel were there ready to greet us and make us feel at home. The rooms turned out to be quite small but this was never an issue anyway as we spent most of the time exploring the Calanques and the local restaurants. Sabrina, the manger of the hotel, deserves a special mention. My girlfriend's shoes were inadequate for the long hike around the Calanques so she kindly offered to lend us a pair of hers! They were truly great hosts and we would definitely stay there again should we decide to go back.

We have just come back from Cassis and stayed there 3 nights.

We picked this hotel as most others were booked, it had a car park and the rates were reasonable compared to the other hotels and amazingly expensive B&Bs in cassis. We had one of the bungalows which are in the car park and can't comment on the rooms in the main part of the hotel as we didnt see them. We had mixed feelings after our stay.

On the positive side, it really is in an excellent location, only 3 minutes walk from the harbour and all the restaurants. The real plus is the car park. It is truly impossible to find a parking space in Cassis. This is a town with just enough parking for its indigenous population of 8000 people. In high season (including the first week of September,) up to 45000 people come to visit each day. You will not find a parking space in town or near the beaches or the calanques after 830- 900 am, even after circling for 1-2 hours. This leads to a lot of tension, frayed nerves and regular fights over car parking saces (I can vouch for this as I was physically assaulted by a very aggressive French woman and spent my last afternoon there visiting the hospital in La Ciotat and the Gendarmerie). Anyone thinking of staying in a hotel outside Cassis or in a B&B which is a 10 mn drive (or 30 minutes walk ) away up in the hills (the ones with available rooms!) and drive in should give up on the idea. The 2 hotels near Bestouan beach claim to have a car park but this is the public car park so you are not guaranteed to find a pace and it is expensive. You need a hotel with a dedicated car park and so this is ideal. In addition, the owners are extremely helpful and friendly, they will bring breakfast to your room and recommend restaurants etc...

On the down side, the bungalow we were in was not so great. It seemed charming at first but the decor will not be to everyone's taste, there was nowhere to hang the shower head and the shower curtain did not stop water from going everywhereand flooding the floor. Although you have a terrace, this is actually in the car park so no great views and noise from departing/arriving passengers can wake you up. The breakfast room is not very attractive either. The hotel is a good 30 minutes walk from the start of the calanques walk so not the most convenient for this purpose.

However, while the hotel is not a particularly charming place to stay, the owners are delightful and the location plus car park plus the reasonable rates are good reasons to stay there if you cant find anywhere else.
