“Needs an update!”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

One cannot complain about the view and location overlooking St Clair & Le Lavandou, but in todays competitive market one should not rely on the that as the only selling point to attract custom. Sorry but this is 2012 and for 110€ plus 10€ parking I do not expect to be staying in a room that resembles the 1970's. The plus points -the bed was comfortable, there is air con in the room & breakfast was acceptable but nothing special, but the over bath shower was useless ( you had to hold it whilst showering) and the loo water did not stop running. This was a late booking so we had limited choice, next time we would stay at home or find elsewhere

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

Readers of my previous reviews will have noticed my focus on the price/quality/value ratio. At the Belle View we have the perfect example of an overpriced French hotel. It is old fashioned with no charm whatsoever. Standards such as comfortable room fittings are completly missing and the hotel is "Sparten" at best. This could be seen as just the way that French hotels of a certain standard are presented however one would have expected to pay half the price we were charged.

Not only were facilities underwhelming generally, the room we stayed in had a few major problems that the hotel were completely unwilling to fix. Firstly the drain for the bath and sink was blocked and water took an hour or more to run away. Then we found that only one of four room lights worked. The bathroom was also in need of redecoration with paint peeling off walls and ceiling.

It must be said that the room was clean but that is the only posative thing I can say about this hotel.

We visit Le Lavandou a lot. The Belle Vue will not see our return.

Having been to this hotel for the first time in 2009 and having just come back from a 15 night stay on half board i felt compelled to write a review because the last review made in 2007 is out of date and the report was so bad and quite different to our own experience that we felt in fairness to the hotel we should put the other point of view,
The hotel location is spectacular being on high ground and looking down on the long sandy beach at Le Lavandou and across to the Islands in the distance.The rooms are very clean.There is an ample supply of towels which are automatically changed daily. The rooms have a safe and minibar.There is ample space for parking and a private garage can be booked if required. A small shop is nearby which sells everything and if you want an English newspaper you can reserve one.
The hotel is and has been run by the same family for many years. They really make you feel welcome and nothing is too much trouble.They have a good chef. We would describe the cooking as good family cuisine and very good food . We enjoyed every meal without exception. They offer a choice of two starters and two main courses plus a dessert. The choice is limited but they make up for it in the cooking and presentation. Expect to put on a lot of weight!
IN summary- wonderful location, good facilities and garden,parking, good cooking and bedroom accommodation all wrapped up with a great friendly personal service. What more could you ask for?

This is a terrible hotel. The first room they gave us had a bathroom that smelled like it had never been clean. There was rust and mold on the appliances. The second room was only slightly better, with a shower that barely worked. No air conditioning and if you opened the window you were inundated by noise from the street that was next to the hotel.

I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. How could it be a three star?

I stayed at the hotel belle vue in August 2005 for 2 nights. It is a small family-run hotel up on the hills a short drive-away from le Lavandou town centre. The nearest beach is within walking distance. The room was an adequate size for us as we didn't want to spend much time in the room. The decor was a little dated. The bathroom and breakfast were nice. The major problem was that the rooms were not soundproof at all. We could hear people talking in the room next door, almost as if they were in our room. I have stayed in other 3 stars hotels before and think this one doesn't deserve its 3 stars. We were overall quite disappointed.
