Proximity to station Scarcity of parking space
Helpful staff who spoke English. Ideal location being by station and bus stop for airport bus. It was ideal for our requirements. The room was hot and due to its city location opening the windows made it rather noisy
I'm very sorry but there was nothing I liked about this hotel... As I said before it was a huge disappointment: staff doesn't speak english, receptionist had no communication manners, noise from the train station was incredible and even radiator in the room was hot while autside was +25 degrees! It was absolutely awful. I have no idea why this hotel has 2 stars and is classified as a hotel. I'm very sorry but I'll never come back there and will never recmmend this to anyone else. It was very poor service for the money. I'm very sorry for myself.
Basic fairly priced hotel close to station and centre of town,might be considered noisy by some people. no
The staff are very friendly and helpful. It is also very conveniently located and rooms are quiet despite proximity to the railway station. no shower curtain and only two towels for a couple with child. Breakfast was also a bit meagre in choice and quantity, though one morning significantly better than another.
The friendliness of the staff
It is very close to the airport bus stop and the railway station. Showers were not very good.
Nothing special to recall other than proximity to station Poor space in bathroom
close to La Gare. The streets in Nimes are very uneven! I stumbled several times.
Both beds were extremely comfortable with good clean duvets. Good hot water at all times. Very central so everything was within walking distance. Room (twin) very small with not much room to move. Although it was hot at night, we had to keep the windows closed because of the train noise. Very few parking spaces for customers.
Free Wifi. Check in by electronic check maschine, but it's ignore my reservation pin code. We had wrote that we would arrive late at night and when we got there it was no one, just a sign "hotel complete".
both rooms were smelling awful, it was a little worse than tent...
Cooperation of the hotel staff!
Parking good Some distance from city centre car / taxi needed
Location was convenient to Nimes, with basic services nearby. Suitable for budget travellor, or for overnight stop on-the-road. Reasonable value for money.
The hotel was clean and tidy and the hosts were very friendly. The bedroom and bathroom were small, perfect as a base to explore the area from but not ideal if you plan on spending any amount of time indoors. Lack of security, the hotel did have cctv but there was a slight incident one night and no security personnel. Also not English speaking as advertised in other media.
Room smelt of stale smoke.
There was free wifi access and free parking. Staff were helpful, and room was small but cozy.
Cheap and adequate. Airconditioning. WiFi Internet access would not allow access to Hotmail or other Log-in-type stites
The rooms are Clean! Food is Good! Good hotel if not staying for long! 3 nights maximum! bathroom (shower room) is Very small! Camper style! would need a car as it is far from any restaurants or pubs.
Location very good close to centre.Beautiful garden with pool - nice retreat from city in midday heat. Very interesting hotel. Great attention to detail. Very personal service. Beautiful hotel, charming accommodation but more like exclusive City guesthouse. Room small for a double room. No minibar.Facilities as an hotel quite limited. Difficult to find.
Excellent service, friendly and welcoming Inadequate lighting in both rooms and i common areas, however there was great ambience and we thoroughtloy enjoyed our stay
The experience made you feel that you were in a luxury home as a guest, not the normal 'hotel' experience, much nicer. The bathroom takes a bit of getting used to as it didn't have a door.
I loved the bespoke service that was offered - the fact that the owners talk to the guests is amazing. Loved the ambience and the decor. Would definitely go again.
helpfulness and friendliness of staff - ability to communicate well in French and English
The staff were very helpful and we loved the location and the garden
Charming hotel. Very pretty garden. Little far from town center. Noisy because of nearby railroad.
Utterly exquisite. A hidden oasis with a passion for detail and cleanliness. Superb facilities. Extremely friendly, courtious and considerate staff led by the extraordinary example of making you feel at home by the proprietors Its not cheap, but it has great value. A must stay at hotel. We will remember our stay for a very, very long time. Superb!!! Formidable!!!! So acessable being 3 minutes from the tvg station. Nothing whatsoever!!!! We take exception to recent reviews saying that the staff were rude. Such a senario is just impossible!!!!!
The building is a lovely old post house with 2 gardens, which are lovely for relaxing in. but we were very unhappy with almost everything about this very expensive and pretentious hotel. Our room was not up to the standard of most 3 star hotels. none of the following: luggage rack, robe hooks, lavatory roll holder, loo brush, soap dish in shower, towel rails, international electrical points, no mini bar, no dressing table, clothes-hanging rail of jacket length - not for dresses, bedside lights only (25 watt) too little to read by, and if switched off at bedside impossible to turn on light when entering room at door. Chicken wire in door-frame between lavatory and bedroom so no visual privacy, and smells penetrated room. 2x25 watt wall lights in bathroom not sufficient for shaving or make-up. Mirror to side of wash basin - bad for wet shaving. Second pillows supplied reluctantly. We shall be writing to the hotel chain
Easy to find and in a convenient spot.The staff were good. The hotel felt "sad" and rundown.
Easy to find and parking is very convenient. Rooms were spacious and facilities are many and varied (eg. Swimming pool). Dining room was pleasant and you were given numerous options for breakfast. It is located a bit out of the city centre but the walk was relatively easy (20 minutes).
location, and pool
Good Breakfast and having a poolside room Difficulty in obtaining the complimentary welcome Tea/Coffee tray especially getting the refills. Why are they just not left in the room?
Good basic hotel
This hotel was only a 15 min walk (even for a tired 4yr old) to the center/train station but felt more like a small tucked away hotel you might find on a hillside somewhere. The courtyard/pool is stunning, with a really nice space for eating outside as well. The wind in Nîmes meant it never got too hot, but also meant the water in the pool was very very cold. The train to the beach at Grau du Roi (where the water is a bit warmer) took less than an hour and was only €1 each way. Great boulangerie across the street, plus a Carrefour just around the corner. The friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff really sets this hotel apart. I travel extensively for work and can only think of one other hotel with staff so helpful, and that was after staying at that hotel for a month, not just the few days I spent at L'Orangerie. We stayed in two different rooms. The first was more expensive but a bit more shabby. Its shower room really needed updating. The next room we had booked was much more cheerful and fresh, and the bathroom was fine.
Easy to find. Bed was terrible as both twins rolled into the center so that you were lopsided. Also noise from the highway is loud. Sleep was difficult and this hotel does not measure up to other Best Westerns.
It was a convenient stop before leaving early in the morning for the airport. Did not like the fact that the restaurant was full and we could not dine there.
The restaurant in this hotel i very good.
Quit nice small and hospitality but need some repairment. Staff is good. Breakfast very poor Bathroom is very old and needs some repairing bath and toilet
The restaurant food (our selection) was excellent. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful Rather a longer walk into town centre than anticipated. A taxi or car journey for the less mobile
Above all its close proximity to the charming old city. Draught beer at O'Flaherty's nearby. Breakfast and other French quality meals in sunlight squares. We booked for two nights and stayed six. The parking was most useful but I think that, for an executive car, access might be uncomfortably tight.
very friendly and helpful staff
It was in the Centre of Nimes and we could walk to good restaurants, bars and all site seeing places.
beds very comfortable, quiet hotel - good night's sleep, good showers dark in the room breakfast expensive for what it was
The hotel was in the centre of town which maent that once the car was parked, we could walk the areas we wanted to visit. There were plenty of local restaurants available
In centre, near arenes and train station rooms a bit small, but ok for 1 night
clean good value for money good breakfast central-near rail & bus transport.Problemn of getting to the airport caused by a lightning strike by local taxis two & a half hours before the flight departure was most kindly solved by the owner himself running us in his car to the airport--you cannot beat that for service
Reasonable price, excellent central location, quiet air conditioner. We even had a large balcony to sit on. Carpet needed replacing. Elevator only goes to third floor, we were on the fourth.
everything was very good. the breakfast was excellent I would have like decaffinated coffee
Very Helpful Staff. Good location for exploring Nimes Centre
The color in hotel is pretty bright. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for tourists who can walk nearby in the city; None.
The hotel location was perfect for us, the hotel staff were friendly to us and to our toddler, and spoke English very well. Some of the fittings were broken and the main door was fiddly to lock
Pleasant staff, comfortable, good street parking around, quiet but near centre. Wifi signal was low but staff fixed it and offered use of computer in hallway as well.
Mervellous ! Excellent desigh, very clean, modern, very nice rooms with beautiful drawings on the walls, very quiet, very very nice hotel stuff! No.
The staff were very friendly, the rooms were clean, the location was superb for the train and bus station (2 mins walk) but not that far to walk to Nimes arena either. I also think it provided parking which was excellent if you were on a tour of the Laungedoc/Provence area. There was one incident with the room I was staying in (won't go into details) where I had to inform the staff but the matter was dealt with efficiently by them and I had no further complaints.
courteous, friendly staff. good value for money light from sign shone in window at night. not a big deal though
close to downtown; quiet; parking available. large bathroom but no shower curtain for shower
The male hotel clerk was very helpful and the hotel was in a great location, very convenient for easily walking to the central city sights of Nimes. It also had parking almost directly across the street, which was a really great help. The room was fine - very plain, but clean and it had air conditioning, which was a real "plus" since Nimes was very warm. My biggest suggestion is that the hotel owners should add a shower curtain rod and shower curtain to the bathtub/shower, which would be easy and inexpensive. It's virtually impossible to take a shower without getting water everywhere.
Cosy, nice, very intimate, excellent staff Suggestionable.
Given the proximity of the airport the hotel was remarkably quiet. The overall atmosphere was one of calmness and relaxation. The staff polite and helpful. The main attraction as far as my children were concerned were Vanilla and Tiger. All in all a really welcoming Hotel
The staff were very freindly and helpful, the food was very very nice and not expensive, the pool area was great . The hotel does have traffic noise .
Calm, relaxing atmosphere; very charming rustic building but quite sophisticated decor/ambience. Was worried about being so near an airport but only saw one plane and it wasn't very loud. Although only a stopover we all wanted to return for a holiday! although food was overall good, with a very nice breakfast, some disappointments at dinner (poor quality steak; over-peppered duck)
The loungers around the pool were amazing....bean bags and hammocks!. And I loved being waited on around the pool. The food at the restaurant was very tastey. A 3 course meal with some unusual choices but delicious all the same. Catered well for kids with less discerning palates. Little english spoken but just about enough to get by. The rooms were large and airey with air conditioning and wonderfully large showers. Quiet area but still close enough to Nimes airport which is a fabulous location for early morning flights. An excellent find which I would definitely recommend. no
It was a beautiful and charming place to stay. The pool was large, lovely and clean. The pool area was well equipped with hammocks, chaise lounges and the staff provided pool towels. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The room and bed were comfortable and clean.
Good food, nice pool and attractive outside eating area. Room decor getting a little shabby,in need of redecoration.
The outside pool is a great asset. breakfast was adequate (not the best we had, but the food was wonderful in the evenings, especially the fish and the 'fig tart'. The owners were very helpful and even gave us a lift to the airport. Although some aspects of the room need updating, such as the bathroom, it was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable,
friendly & helpful reception staff. beautiful pool restaurant not open
We stayed one night between destinations. We enjoyed the pool and the restaurant. There is nothing special about the location.
Very friendly staff and excellent evening meal. Very convenient for Nimes airport.
It is well positioned to see Nimes, good garage, nice staff. Breakfast was good. Renovation in progress should improve it even more. Plenty of nearby Restaurants and Bars. Price is about right. (Budget level) No Bar. Restaurant not open. Further renovation works in progress and needed. Heating in room.
Very good location. Confortable room (big bedroom and bathroom). Very good price. The bed wasn't very confortable.
The lady at the reception was very friendly and helpful even offered to help us with our luggage from and to the car. The secure car parking. Wasn´t too keen on the location but it was ok for an overnight stay.
The room was very quiet and the beds were comfortable, so we were able to have a good night's sleep. The airport shuttle stopped close to the hotel. It was a bit far from the train and bus stations.
The room was bright and comfortable. The cleaner was pleasant and cooperative. The staff were helpful around the car in the garage. The breakfast was good. When we could not get to our car as planned the charge was deducted. Too many steps in the dining room, especially as we had to carry our hot drinks from the machine several times each breakfast, as the cups were so small. The garage was charged for, yet there was a lot of manoeuvring needed and one morning we couldn't get the car out as planned.
my daughter Danielle stayed at the hotel and she said she liked it. The staff were very nice
Myself, my partner and my brother had done a road trip to spain and stayed in this hotel for 1 night on ruturn overall we stayed in 3 hotels and they all were very nice, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and tidy. we only had 1 issue with the hotel and it was the breakfast it said 14 euroes each for an american style breakfast and all we got was bread and butter with a choice of cheese and hams and some yogurts and crossants we needed a big breakfast before our next 6 hour drive so was disapointed with that. we would saty again but not have breakfast.
Location. Hard to find on a narrow street, but right in the heart of the old town. Adaquate room, nicely appointed. Interior open-air courtyard was beautiful with old stone archways, had a castle-like feel. Not really. Parking was 100 metres away in a shopping centre parkade, but at 8 Euros/day it was cheap. And what do you expect in a two hundred year old downtown hotel?
Situation of the Hotel. We like the fact that the hotel is an 18 something years old building. The public spaces gave us a real feel of the age of the bulding and area where it's located. Overall, it was a good exeprience. No place to unload our luggages on the street. We had to park our car in a nearby shopping center and walk with our luggages on the street. The room itself was clean, the bed was good but it's a bit outdated and might require some refreshing.
Sad, tired old bed and a tiny bathroom
Great little hotel, good secure parking, clean and very friendly staff..
Price for the area. Walking distance to main sites. No air conditioning, the bathroom shower and shower curtain was full of mold, and could hear the people in the next room.
We loved the common patio that everyone would congregate in. About 10 of us in a sailing club spent the night there right before the Bullfight festival. We could walk from the train station or a short taxi ride. Easy walk to history, shopping, and fun restaurants. The staff scores high in trying to please everyone and helping us have a memorable stay. Our room was small but colorful and comfortable. Could easily unpack and repack by the way our room was furnished...#10. This place was an unexpected treat and would recommend it and stay there again. a restaurant recommended to us was delicious, artistic, and had Rose Ice Cream an heavenly taste treat. Service 5 star as in my mind was the hotel. Restaurant's name Claire's Table. There are no complaints. I cannot remember the reviews on the hotel on the website.
The staff is very friendly. The courtyard (Patio) is very nice & cosy. Relatively close to city centre. Private Garage. Would not recommend hotel for partents with small children: the double room was very small facing the very crowed street. Sleeping with open window was impossible as it was way too loud, sleeping with closed window as well as it was too hot and stuffy. Our baby could not sleep at all thus screaming all the time. Going a round outside with the pram at night is not advisable as the hotel is in a quite rough area. Another problem: the hotel lies in the first floor which can only be reached via long steps. Cleanliness & hotel standard were rather 1-star than 2-star (E.G. water from the toilet was flowing on the bathroom floor).
the ´patio´ the floor and some of the furniture should be replaced because is not in good condicion - too old
Friendly staff, clean hotel. The location is in a run-down area of the city, some 15 minutes walk from anything.
The staff was great and the patio quite enjoyable after a day of visiting:) the hotel is a bit on the outskirts of old nimes but only a 5 minute walk away.
Good clean hotel reasonable price. Staff helpful & pleasant
Great room, good staff and excellent value. The location was ideal!
Location of the hotel is very good, quite confortable, easy parking A little bit too expensive.
Excellent location, really friendly and helpful staff, free wifi!
Breakfast is poor and expensive. It seems that scrambled eggs contains everything but eggs. At diner, sirloin could have been tasty, but was cold.Fortunately, there are some honest restaurants around.
Quiet room very hard floor--thin carpet right on concrete--my feet hurt when I first got up in the morning to walk on it
Very comfortable clean room. The hot breakfast food is poor.
Staff were great
the location was excelent. The weather was bad and we could not go out for dinner, restaurant was a good surprise.
Very clean, quiet and air conditioned - just what we needed None
buono il letto e la caffetteria manca l'ascensore
Nice decoration, comfortable room, heart of the city. No elevator, no international tv, old room door.
Nice spacious room and lovely breakfast area and breakfast was very good. Receptionist in the morning was extremely helpful. Arrived 10pm and although the person who checked us in was nice I do not think he was familiar with the role of receptionist. Everything was closed!
Ideal central location. Hotel room with a lot of style. Rather poor acoustic isolation. Vinci public parking pretty expensive.
We have stayed at the Royal twice now. The rooms are fairly basic but very spacious and the hotel has a great Spanish influence. Best of all is its location and the resturant serving taps which has a good atmosphere. Noisy at the front of the hotel and needs better duvets and pillows-perhaps a little more creature comforts?
Its location is excellent. Facilities are bad. Internet regularly stops working.
Location, location, location! 20 seconds from Roman theatre, 5 minutes from amphitheatre (which was quite amazing) and close to shops and restaurants. Hotel staff all very good. Bedding and towels all very clean Our room was very basic (no wardrobe nor chest of drawers just open rail and open shelves). Small bath and no separate shower. Very noisy each morning
I would have to say the style of the hotel and the room were outstanding; we felt like royalty. Staff were brilliantly professional and language was no issue. The location in the centre of town was superb and close to all the Roman monuments, coloesium etc. an underground Parking station was very close and extremely unobtrusive which was great due to traffic being insane. The noise from the bar downstairs was heavy (we were in an extremely lavish upgraded suite above it) however in a spirit of holiday loving, if you can't beat it, join it, so we had a couple of drinks downstairs as well.
right in town centre great price performance Chef even opened up 1/2 hour early as we had an early evening appointment
Liked the location, adjacent to the main sights. Also liked the ambience of the hotel: stone floors, high ceilings, tall French doors opening onto street views. My room looked onto the street on the first floor (European first) and was noisy early in the morning.
My husband and I stayed at the Ibis Styles for 3 nights in December. We thought it was great. The hotel is right behind the train station, which was great for us, as we were using the train for transport. A short walk through the train station and diwn a picturesque walkway got us right to the middle if the old town. The staff was very helpful and had great recommendations for meals. Breakfast was included and snacks were available all day and also included in the rate. Would definitely stay here again! The rooms are great! The only negative is they they are a bit small and a little dark. But, the space is used very well and it was perfect for what we wanted to do. Great value for the money!
