The staff were very friendly and helpful during our short stay.
The hotel is very close to the town centre and has on site parking. The rooms are very modern and well appointed. Breakfast was good value for money.
It was a nice clean hotel, price very resoable but the breakfast, nothing special , I expected a bit better for the 8€pp The only remark I can make on the rooms is that the TV channels are all French, no BBC nor CNN I was happy clean fast and cheap
Good location for overnight stay for car journey through France to and from Spain, Italy and South of France
Free parking. Right in the center.
although it seems like a former formule1 it was much cleanier and brighter the direction for this hotel could be misleading as the hotel is situated on the village outskirts unfortunatly we did not approach from that direction the satnav took us to centre ville there were no signs as expected from other chains
The location on a beautiful golf course and the view from our room. The food in the restaurant was disappointing. The mattress on the bed was also quite hard and uncomfortable.
The location on a golf coiurse was very good, but not well signposted, unusual for France! The food let down the hotel, it was poorly cooked and did not come with any extra vegetables other than the one accompanying veg.
Nice atmosphere No greenfee offers for guests
We got lost in Montelimar and were so glad to finally make it to Chateau Hotel Du Monard. The welcome was friendly and our room pleasant with a nice view. The "castle tower" is more of a decoration but is very cute and lends atmosphere. We did not play golf but the golf course looked gorgeous as we drove through it. We ate both on the terrace and in the dining room and found the food reasonable though not gourmet. The hotel gave easy access for exploring the Cotes du Rhone.We would recommend it to friends. The only things we did not like were the cost of playing nine holes of golf and my food (braised lamb shank) the first night we were there was undercooked, tough and not hot. All the other food was OK and they were very busy that night after a golf tournament. We felt we could have been supplied with more than one tiny piece of soap for a two day stay and the kleenexes could have been replaced.
The food was good
The swimming pool is very nice and the rooms are spacious but a bit average.The restaurant serves nice food. We did not like the motorway to be in sight. We think the word chateau is misleading as there is nothing like that around. Price/quality is not right. We have stayed in better hotels this holiday at a lower rate.
The staff and general comfort of the hotel Only the directions to it
Wonderful setting for dining - overlooking golf course. Good menus.
This is a wonderful place for a weekend stay. We stayed for one night while travelling back from holiday in South East France. The setting is lovely, very relaxing sitting on the terrace watching the golfers trying to avoid the lake! Had a very good meal in the restaurant and there was an excellent choice in the breakfast buffet the following morning. Would definitely return if in the area again.
A warm welcome from friendly staff. A well equipped room with lovely views over the valley. An excellent meal in the restaurant at reasonable prices. We really enjoyed it and will return on our next trip to the area. It's a bit 'off the beaten track' but well signed and worth the journey.
Very nice people, and the restaurant was great =
Petite dejeuner in the garden was very pleasant. The staff were both pleasant and helpful. The dinner menu looked quite good, and I would have been interested to dine at the hotel, although others -- vegetarian--wished to try the town for a wider selection of plats. Air conditioning in the room would have helped, especially as the location of our room -- facing the entrance path of the hotel--obliged us to keep the drapes of the window closed. Wi-Fi reception our room was non-existent, although in the room across the hallway, it apparently was good.
Nothing in particular Access to rooms via a narrow spiral staircase poor. Breakfast poor value. Room booked as 'Courtyard View' the view was of a flat roof.
Happily, we could check in until 23.00 and not until 22.00 like mentioned on this website, otherwise we would have arrived too late. No lift, but you would use it only twice: on arrival and when you're leaving.
the owner made us feel at home and helped with directions
The room was very small, price/quality weak. The breakfast had more price than content. The dinner is acceptable, but the guests have no more special price as a compensation for the room quality.
We stayed for evening dinner which was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very basic, even by French standards. The room that we were allocated was also very basic with a very small shower room/toilet.
- Good working shower, enough bathfoam - secure parking and free - Bedding of poor quality - overall impression of rooms and garden is poor and needs decorationa and maintenance
Probably the hotel would be fine after renovation which is now on. Quite a good breakfast. The room was not very comfortable, especially the decor.
location, helpfulness of staff.
We did not dislike anything
The gentleman behind the desk was extremely helpful when we arrived at the hotel with a personal problem. We cannot praise him enough for the help he gave us - it also then made our stay enjoyable
The location is amazing. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and it was an ideal stop off point on our way from the south to the north of France. To get any service you had to go and find someone. There didn't seem to be enough staff and the reception staff were always busy in the back office.
A lovely location and olde world style hotel. Food Very Good Rooms a little small. Staff had very poor English
The Hotel is a beautiful old grand hotel in a spa town. Unfortunately it is well past it's heyday and is now full of bus loads of people on package tours. It has a good pool facility although there were so many families with small children it was rather difficult to enjoy it. The rooms are very overpriced even at a special rate.
Very friendly staff - meals good quality for price - free wi fi Towels need replacing - wi fi not available in room
Good sized rooms, good decor of rooms. Nicely furnished public areas. I stayed in August. The room was very hot as no air con or fan.
cleanliness of the room ;brekfast
very clean and spacious rooms, renovated, modern, free parking, free wifi, air cond., swimming pool, excellent breakfast. Very nice hotel and not too expensive. (only 2*, but could be a 3*) no, very good impression, positively surprised
good for overnight stay when travelling. Clean and nice breakfast not included in room fee. outdated rooms for quite a large amount of money.No WiFi Internet.
The hostess was really excellent and the hotel had style. The location was poor
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location just off the main route south. Very good meal in the evening which was good value for money. From the outside appearance we would not have gone in it as much better then it looked externally. Busy road at the front.
the ambiance, the food and the peacefullness were all very good. the staff was attnetive. when we opened our windows, we were invaded by flies, room 18. after i killed most of them, I complained to the front deask, only to be told that the hotel is near a farm and there are flies sometimes.
international TV stations need improvement (CNN, RAI, German stations), poor pictures
Excellent facilities, superb food and drinks. Nothing
rooms have been recently refresh, refurbished and they are very cosy, quiet and comfortable. Special mention to our bathroom with was huge the swimming pool was not very clean
Motorcycle friendly. Excellent parking facility. Friendly staff. Charming, old style hotel, excellent, quiet location. Very comfortable bed, maybe a memory foam mattress.
The building and the owners Nothing
Car Parking facility Friendly and helpful staff Attractive architecture and garden Lack of restaurant and bar
Everything - beautiful old building in perfect location. Excellent level of comfort.
From check in to check out, everything was perfect. The beds are very comfortable. Location is in the center and very convenient for walking. Yet it is very quiet due to being set back from the street in a private courtyard. The staff goes the extra mile
If you like lots of ambiance and an old style stay this is the place. The bed was excellent, the staff helpful and kind. Our only complaint would be that they could offer brewed coffee vs instant in the morning. We would never expect to find instant coffee in france!
Manager very helpfull in suggesting good routes to explore by motorcycle through mountain roads. Out of sight parking for motor cycles. No bar but plenty within walking distance
Very nice staff, very nice room, lots of space.
excellent location and original decorations Breakfast totally unappeling (quite common in France)
Family room is gigantic in space. Kids loved it. Squeaky wooden floor if you walk in the room. Bathroom is okay. Very nice stop on the road to Spain
Beautiful grounds , a natural setting with space ,a very very comfortable bedroom with a rare feel of privacy not found in many hotels, very well maintained the air con is a great plus. Swimming pool is big enough to have a really good swim with a fantastic view . We had a very good meal fresh excellent produce every meal not over played with ,the service was just perfect with a charming smile the photos do not do it justice
Beautiful, peaceful location but with easy access to major routes. Family run hotel with friendly helpful staff. Excellent room and bathroom. Rather expensive overall and no obvious reception - perhaps because they are still renovating after a fire. We were not affected by the renovations.
Quiet, beautiful gardens, private sitting area no hospitality tray provided
Excellent food in the restaurant with the hotel in a quiet and peaceful location - exactly what we wanted ! We were fortunate to be ungraded to a suite which was delightful. We would recommend La Cardinale without hesitation.
Nice rooms, beautiful garden en view on the area, good restaurant.
The location is charming, in a rural setting. The room and bathroom were excellent in any respect. Comfort parking. Breakfast was basic and overcharged.
The room was magnificent
Lovely comfortable room. Lush bathroom. Absolutely fabulous food. Great attentive service with a smile.
Excellent setting, huge pool, beautiful big rooms, free internet, great breakfast
High-class countryside hotel/farmhouse with all facilities. Very friendly staff. Excellent dinner and good breakfast. Quiet location.
accueil tres chaleureux- chambre très agréable et bien décorée
Very nice staff
The swimming pool was a great asset
We used the hotel as a stopover en route to the south of France and the facilities were good. The staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was more than adequate. Our room was a motel style room which was clean and comfortable and was situated close to the lovely swimming pool, where it would have been lovely to sit out in the evening had it not poured with rain!!
This Hotel was great, the room was spacious as well as the washroom. Had room for parking area included which was also secured with a gate with pin code. Also has a well maintained swimming pool and best of all -the family run staff were really friendly and of great assistance during our stay. Absolutely no flaws in this hotel.
Calm envirnement No
Friendly staff Small room, we could hear our neighbours talk and toiletvisits.
Price Hotel contact information provided was only valid M-F, we stayed on Saturday and were worried we could not check in before desk closed.
Very friendly staff, nice room, spotless clean: recommendable! Hotel directly located on a busy street, therefore quite loud
friendly. We stayed in the hotel, but the motel part looked very good. The pool was a fair size - deep enough to dive and cool off. it's on a big road, but you don't notice it. It's a fair way from the centre, but it's an easy drive.
excellent central location with parking. Owner friendly and helpful.
the owner was very helpful and the hotel was quite easy to find. We liked the position in a small very nice village veryclose to Nice airport The room requires some updating
Good location. Friendly Staff. Clean Room. Good Free Wi Fi In Room. Nice breakfast room. Was given breakfast free of charge! Any complaints we have must be taken in context with the price paid and I would still recommend this hotel as a quick stop over. Contrary to decription on booking.com ALL rooms do not have air conditioning. Small room and bathroom. Room faced a very noisy road and park area used by teenagers. Loud music from up the road went on into the early hours. Had to find own parking space in a metered area when the description on booking.com states the hotel provides free parking.
Rooms were recently upgraded with tasteful French design. Very simple, very pure, for an authentic experience that we (tourists) would like to experience in France. Owners have children themselves so this is a family friendly place to stay (the family room can host a family of four). Breakfast was splendid.
The welcome was very friendly and check in was painless, my room was lovely very clean and spacious, walls were thin however I think most were at hotel for business so I was not disturbed. Excellent value for money I would definitely return and recommend it!
The staff were friendly and flexible - we were allowed to extend our checkout time to fit in with flight times.
The owner was very friendly and helpful. The bed was very small.
The central location in the town They did not accept American Express - was still to come.
The hotel is very nicely decorated, especially the table and dishes at breakfast, nice croissants - not the usual industrial food quality you get elsewhere. The room was rather tiny - but no problem for a short stay.
Really nice hotel, good reception staff. We loved the room which had clearly been recently updated but with quirky decor (a Trunk used as a clothes cabinet for example), Location is good very good 2 min walk to the main restuarants.
the historic value of the property and its contentc lack of individual televisions in the rooms.
Very nice hotel big room you also get what you paid for,very good location,very quiet. Service good would return in the future. Found the breakfast a little sparse. Would have been nice for a mini bar in the room.
The hotel is located in a pretty and quiet park. The rooms were decorated in a mixture of old and new style giving a cosy feeling. Our room had an additional heating fuel stove which was smelling lightly.
The first room we were shown had a loft and awkward layout with no view. We asked if there was a room with a view available, and immediately were shown a beautiful room with a balcony and view of the mountains. The staff was very kind and made it feel like changing the room was no problem at all.
lovely old building in lovely grounds
location and beautiful building and friendly staff obilgotary breakfast for each guest significant extra cost
We had a lovely stay and a happy time. Staff were extremely helpful and the dining facilities were very romantic In our room there was a steep stairway to sleeping area and this was difficult for older person.to climb. Otherwise bedroom very nice.
Nice surroundings, excellent swimming pool area, room with charme, Breakfast for 11 € per person was much too expensive
Nothing really comes to mind..We just wanted a handy place to stay but in future would stay in the town centre as the prices are even lower.... It is an overpriced hotel....and we were overcharged at the desk on the way out but this was remedied quickly and only because my partner , who is French was able to point out the error. Had she not been there......I Would have been in real trouble. Also...for the rather high price..even a small breakfast should have been included in the price.
The whole outlook of the hotel was great, staff so welcoming, very clean swimming pool, excellent food although a bit pricy, beautiful rooms
After driving 600 miles in one day the pool was refreshing and the food was good. A good place to stay. Price of drinks was quite expensive
