“Exactly right for our family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2011

After leaving the awful chain motel we had booked in Bollene for our party of six adults and a four year old child, we were overjoyed to find this wonderful old hotel in the heart of Bollene. Where the motel offered tiny rooms next to a barbed wire fence and a car wash, Le Chateau de Rocher gave us spacious rooms reminiscent of the 19th century and beautiful gardens where we ate dinner and breakfast with a strolling peacock (who loves pain au chocolate).
The proprietress could not have been kinder or more accommodating and our four year old granddaughter was completely enchanted. This was quite the serendipitous find and we enjoyed their hospitality for two nights while we attended a family wedding a few miles away.
Stay here if you want a unique experience - not if you want a flat screen TV or high tech accommodations. This hotel (with excellent food, by the way) could only exist in France.

Worn splendour - beautiful grounds, massive rooms, shabby chic. Lovely food. Wine is very expensive. Demi - pensione - meal, breakfast, room - available - good value but we were called 'demi-pensioners' in the restaurant in front of other diners when we'd been given the à la carte menu which was then taken from us... Added to the fun, in a way - a really relaxing place to stay after a long haul down through France. Lovely to eat out in the garden for lunch or evening meal. Dining rooms are large and quaint. Bollene itself is not very tasty - could be a pretty place but is run down (the bars are not places to be visited by a woman, even with her partner, unless she doesn't mind being stared at and doesn't easily feel uncomfortable - but this can be typical of any small town bar in S France with lots of N African men around at a loose end). One of my favourite hotels/restaurants in France.

Room Tip: rooms at front have balcony overlooking garden

An excellent hotel of charm in a somewhat charmless town, but within easy driving distance of the beautiful Gorges de l'Ardèche. Beautiful grounds and park, parrots, animals on grounds. Decent restaurant. Staff somewhat eccentric but very pleasant. Comfortable rooms but poor TV reception.
