Relaxing, clean and friendly Too expensive by far and poor location
Spa facilities, swimming pool area and the hotel grounds and decor were very nice. Staff were also very attentive. Free wifi in the bedrooms. My room was very small although I was advised of this when booking so can't complain, there are a couple like this, and based on other reviews, most rooms are larger (although this would cost extra to the 185€ we paid per night). My main issue was the cost of any extras in the hotel. Menu prices and drinks were extortionate even if it has a michelin star. Since it's a good 10 minute drive from Avignon, if you don't have a car, you have to go by Taxi, and for some reason that costed around 25€ each one way journey too, making it an expensive couple of days. Not sure if it's normal, but the taxi drivers seemed to start their meter when they were called by the hotel, so the starting tariff would range from 6.50€ to 8.50€ which isn't great.
The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but once through the doors a large, beautiful courtyard (very well maintained) appears. Nice pool area, and well appointed spa area. Fantastic meal at the restaurant. Very friendly staff. The location is a little "off the beaten path", and you need a car to get anywhere. Overall, a little pricey (both room rate and restaurant).
The friendliness of the staff and the food was fantastic Need a map to get there!!!
We knew this hotel from a previous stay 10 years ago, it was nice to find out that it still matched our expectations. The restaurant as good as ever.
Very nice and quiet! Excellent Dinner. Very friendly staff. Secure place and parking ground. Close to Avignon. Will come back...
All the staff were exceptionally polite and helpful, especially the staff at reception, and the restaurant was of a good standard.
We absolutely loved this hotel! It has lots of Provencial charm and our room was very pretty and spacious. It is the perfect place to stay in Provence if you don't want to be with all the crowds in Avignon center. It is about a 10 minute drive to Avignon and easy access to other areas of the Luberon region. There are no restaraunts nearby so you will need a car for sure. The hotel has wonderful food but is pricey. It has a great outdoor pool, indoor pool with spa, very lush landscaping and beautiful patios. Very attentive service and wonderful personel.
quiteness, close to town centre,spacious garden pool water was not heated and a bit too cold
The staff were very attentive and polite. The layout and facilities in the hotel were lovely and there was a lot of attention to detail. Lovely scented rooms.
Good hotel,if you come by car and need place to sleep ,not to stay in room.A lot of interesting places to see around.Small rooms,but clean.Good food need renovation.
very friendly and attentive staff furnishings in bedroom were a bit tired.
There's a great chef, who performs wonders with dinner, although he clearly doesn't have much say in the breakfast, which was mediocre at best! The waiting staff were very nice. We enjoyed our stay here 5 years ago while on honeymoon, when we had a very nice room with a balcony - and wanted to come back. Sadly, things have changed dramatically, with Laurent & Cristia, the managing couple back in 2005, now long gone. Lots of faults: the room my wife and I had was miniscule (suited to a single person of slight stature with no luggage), but actually bigger than the cubicle we got before we complained! The place had a shabby appearance, and the carpet certainly wouldn't encourage barefoot walking. The cramped toilet was usable only if you practice yoga! The reception staff were mostly courteous, but were not overly friendly and gave the impression of being poorly-treated and thus indifferent. Definitely not worth the 97-euro nightly rate. The unattractive suburban location wasn't a factor for us, as we drove to the nice places in Provence, but would be for many.
Good hotel, close to the city and with a good, smaller swimming pool. Very nice and professional staff during our stay. The parking spaces could be better.
Hotel staff helpful and very friendly.Excellent breakfast-buffet.Internet availability. Air condition not in function. Too warm.Leaking of sink in bathroom. Poor water-pressure. Toilet not fastened properly. Dinner not worthy compared to price.
Not too far away from local attractions as a base but you needed a car. Carpark free and safe, lovely pool open all the time and clean. Very basic room, basic bathroom tiny bath, lift not working, staff didn't speak hardly any english (hard when trying to order food - not meaning to sound fussy but 7months pregnant and needed to be very careful about what I ate) - some staff did try. Facing quite a busy road therefore noisy.
very nice place, with comfortable rooms, lovely staff, and a fabulous pool
The friendliness of the staff and the relaxed atmosphere. N/A
Accomodation is very complete, staff is professional. The ambiance is nice (manor and chapel). Swimming pool relatively big. The elevator in the chapel is very slow and the carpet in it has to be cleaned. But this is a minor issue.
perfect kitchen and stuff, nice pool and atmosphere
The hotel is beautiful with excellent grounds. First class restaurant. The air-conditioning in our room did not work which made for a very hot night. Staff were informed but took no action.
The staffs of hotel are very nice and friendly. Dinner was excellent and especially enjoyed to see wine list which had a lot of reasonable priced bordeaux grand vin of good vintage.
A charming inn rich with history. The grounds are beautiful and one of the best bathrooms we have had in France. A lovely place if money is no object, although we did get three nights for the price of two on the booking.com site. The meals were over the top expensive. We were seated in the dining room and the owner came in and told my husband he should be wearing a jacket for dinner. This embarrassing situation could have been avoided if the website had indicated their policy or strong suggestion for dress attire. Because of this, we chose not to eat subsequent meals at the hotel and dined elsewhere.
Standard of hotel A1 100% top notch, as too were the staff. Fantastic location, ditto premises and attention to detail. Totally perfect in every way, could not have been better. We will return.....
We liked this typical atmosphere one gets in French Hotels et Chateaux, unique in the world. We also liked the central situation in the Provence, close to Avignon, very close to the highway. no complaints
Great Service and Food, very rustic and very french Air conditioning did not work very well in the room because of poor design
The service was excellent, the food was out of this world (congratulations to the chef), overall the staff was very friendly and helped regarding all our requests. Relaxed atmosphere No, we were very happy. Clients should be aware that although the rooms are very reasonably priced (semi-luxurious, I would say), the restaurant is very expensive. But it was well worth it. The food was stupendous.
Room was good and breakfast was excellent No swimming pool
close to restaurants and shopping mall. The front desk counter was friendly and helpful the parking compound was dusty.
Friendly staff, cleanliness, excellent value for the cost
Silence, gardens and staffs Due to very weak signal reception, WIFI internet access is not available as described
Staff very helpful especially reception.Food was very good aswell. Expensive for the quality of the rooms-the hotel definitely needs to be refurbished and updated.There were no lounges/sitting areas and the restaurant/swimming pool area felt very cramped.Overall very expensive.For some reason my booking (I cancelled and then rebooked at a cheaper rate) didn't reach the hotel-luckily the hotel had a room.We moved after two nights.
Away from the centre of the old city, which was packed because of the Avignon Festival. Peace and quiet with rest and relaxation by the swimming pool could be followed by a short drive into the centre and some sight seeing.
We found the hotel to be very relaxing and peaceful. The staff were helpful and the food very good. The only slightly disappointing item was the Breakfast Buffet. Rather limited and unexciting.
convenience too many little things were annoying at this hotel 1) canvas chair on my terrace broke as I sat in it, should have been noticed as defective. 2) no light in closet, and closet door hard to open as bed side table in the way 3) toilet room no where near sink, hard to wash hands, 3) restaurant rather grim and food only ordinary (unusual for France) 4) poolside noisy and crowded 5) No newspapers in the morning as at all other good hotels 5) my bath tub and sink dribbled the water in and out...took 35 minutes to fill tub 6) did not clean room until 2:00PM
Everything!! We had eaten at this hotel two years ago, and decided to spend a very special anniversary for one night en route to St Tropez. The room was very comfortable overlooking the beautiful gardens and swimming pool. Food was wonderful, tasty and well presented. A place to return to!
Staff was very kind. Make you feel the most important guest in the hotel. The room was clean and nice, exacty as I expected. Breakfast is too expensive.
This was a most attractive building and hotel in a tiny village. The decor was wonderful and gardens peaceful We were a group of eight with separate bookings but there was confusion in the assignment of rooms for the appropriate rates
the gardens and the pool area, the attention of the owners Our room was too small
Food is excellent, and the hotel is very nicely decorated.
The hotel was pretty, modern and clean. We had a meal there on one evening and that was very nice also. One of the two managers spoke English and both were friendly and efficient. We stayed in four different 3* hotels in Southern France during our recent holiday, and this was the most expensive and had the smallest room. The pool was nice, but was not especially large and was shaded for much of the day. Boulbon is a 'typical' French village but the general vicinity is a little 'industrial' and there isn't much to do nearby, so you really need to drive to Avignon or St Remy (about 20mins away) for alternative meal destinations.
The hotel location, the silence, the cleanliness, the excellent dinner and breakfast. I was appalled by the reaction of the manager/owner when I said that our 7-year old son needed to stay in our room - no separate room for a 7-year old kid !! The manger threatened to get us pay the full amount and to throw us out. I come to france for more than 30 years but I never was "welcomed" in such a way. This hotel is hostile towards kids and families.
The setting was beautiful, the accommodation was excellent and the ambience was very peaceful and relaxing. While the food, drinks and other services are of good quality, they are also significantly over-priced and not value for money.
La Bastide is close to Avignon and the Rhone in a pretty Provencal village and is set in beautiful grounds with a welcoming, refreshing swimming pool. The rooms are attractive with contemporary decor and dinner outside on the terrace was memorable (for all the right reasons!)
Staff was very friendly, dinner and breakfast were excellent - the French kitchen lived up to its reputation, it is a place of rest and peace No dinner on Sundays
this was a wonderful place to stay--service was great--lovely dining facilities (small) and delicious food. I would highly recommend this to couples of all ages.
The location and environment great, warm welcome and very commited couple who leads the hotel. The choice of the three course menu in the evening is very limited if the stay at the hotel is longer then 3 days
very good michelin starred restaurant, quiet location in a garden the room was charged at 170 euros whereas the booking was made at 165 euros. This was only noticed later.
This is a beautiful countryside hotel. The room, the facilities and the view were beautiful. the air conditioning was broken and while it was fixed, the overall cooling at the hotel was not working very well during all our stay. Restaurant and breakfast are very expensive
The rooms and the sitting area were beautiful and very spacious. We were surprised at what the town offered with a great castle and view of another city, but also surprised at the overall feeling of the city (not as nice as you would expect for the niceness of the hotel). Our room was skipped in cleaning and the hostess seemed very stressed out in her interactions with us. Although we had a balcony (which we paid for) you weren't allowed to bring food or drinks out there to enjoy it.
The hotel was a small, charming Provencal hotel. Our room was a nice size and comfortable just off a cozy sitting area at the end of the stairs. The owners were friendly and very helpful. They recommended an excellent restaurant that served the local cuisine at a very reasonable price.
