Location Historic rooms extremely small. Furthermore, the rooms were incredibly hot, particularly in the night, fan not efficient enough to cool rooms.
The location, atmosphere, including in the remarkable historical dinning room. Just a fantastic experience. Puzzling that international news channels in English are not available on satellite TV (FTA) in 2007.
Beautiful outlook overlooking the cloisters. Excellent food. Rooms quite small & could do with rack for luggage but fine for overnight.
everything is good nothing
Excellent staff, situation, ambience, atmosphere small windows, but after all, it WAS once a convent!
position in town size of rooms, lack of general lounge areas,no access to bar or availability to sit and enjoy tea or coffee until evening opening hours.Room felt rather cell like.Bathroom far too small.Staff disinterested.
13th century abdij very nice refurnished. Great atmosfeer.
Fabulous location well converted, discrete service No option for simple breakfast, 12 Euros a lot if you only want coffee. WI Fi seems to be everywhere in France, prefer not to have it because of radiowaves
Loved the character and ambience. A great place for a relaxing weekend Cannot think of anything I disliked
We liked the dining room. We had breakfast there to compensate with a nice environment from the disappointment about the room we got. We did not like the room. It wasn´t terrible but just not worth the money it cost at all. It also didn´t much at all the expectations the place arises it being such a nice building from the outside. They really need to spend some money on interiors.
the hotel is charming with lovely settings & pool, staff were kind, polite, knowledgeable & booked a table a great restaurant in local village, close enough to the gorge de verdon if hotels are fully booked there room rates & the food & drinks were expensive for what they were... I recommend saving your money on breakfast & dinner & go in to the town for a lovely local bite.
Wonderful location.Comfortable room. Breakfast good. Dinner, what a let down. Overpriced, limited menu, poor quality. Dinner.
Breakfast good, meals good Small room
This is a delightful hotel in a quaint village near Aups, the truffle 'capital' of france. The staff were all extremely friendly, and helpful. The building and grounds were delightful. The facilities were mostly nonsmoking with the exception of the bar, but no one was smoking during our stay. The restaurant was excellent. I would definitely return if we visit the area again.
This is simply a top hotel. The staff is very friendly and professional (1 exception though), the rooms very clean, cosy and romantic with all the necessities (incl fast and free internet). Definitely worthy of a 4 star. The location is in the middle of nowhere, but central to those that want the "real" provence: markets of Reziers, azure-blue lake of Sainte Croix, pittoresque cities of Pau, Salerners, etc. Furthermore, the restaurant of this hotel is a Michelin star, and the food simply superb, and very cheap relative to the reputation (full meny for 28 EURO). The rooms are not big. We also experienced the hotel managers switching from extremely friendly to hostile and rude on the last day (I booked the room with a card that didnt have enough funds; upon arrival I mentioned that and gave one of the managers a valid card for our stay which she put in the system; unfortunately they didnt communicate with each other and another manager tried to debit the old card, which didnt work; after which he rudely forced us to pay all on the spot and refused to let us enter the room - unknowing that I had given another card three days prior in their system). Luckily, the manager of the restaurant felt for us and made it up with a "special" splendid meal.
The outside dining terrase is lovely in the summer. The room was small for the amount we paid and not having air conditioning when it's 35 degrees outside is not ideal. The mini-bar lock was broken so we couldn't access it (we were told it would be fixed after we left). However the thing that annoyed us most was that in this heat gentlemen have to wear long trousers for dinner. Utterly outdated and riduculous... we thought that we were there to relax not to be told what we can and can't wear.
friendliness of staff
The country setting was great, even though road noise intruded somewhat. Breakfasts were high quality. Location was very convenient for day touring. There is a sense that the operation is run by accountants. Bathroom facilities were small; and the description `romantic` for a room that was pretty standard streched the imagination and the tarriff. Worst was the quality of food and maitre d`e. The former, a choice on the a la carte, was sparse and expensive at Eu25, and the cheese plate was well iced; and the latter was overbearing and dismissive. Dinner costs were rebaited but it was very disappointing none the less.
Beautiful surroundings, good food. Fine facilities and easy access. The room was a little small, and the access a little dark (unlit) at night.
Convenient, accessible, helpful staff Lack of restaurant or bar facilities
Was easy to find and had good safe parking. Very nice property with a nice view and the patio was very comfortable. There was a brand new bathroom in our room and the room was large and quiet. Short walk to town. The lobby and breakfast room was very interesting.The owner was very helpful and pleasant. The busy decor could be updated (ie flowery curtains)
The quiet location within easy walking distance of the small town was ideal. The lady owner was a delight and spoke excellent English. The grounds of the Hotel were expansive and impressive and the room was just what we wanted - we even had a small balcony where we could sit and admire the grounds. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a low cost, comfortable and peaceful stay.
The hotel was on walking distance from the citycenter of Greoux. It was a great place to take trips to different cities & areas. The rooms were very simple, but compared to other hotels in the area, good value for money. The breakfast was not very extensive and there were not a lot of facilities, like a bar or restaurant.
The staff at Lou Paradou could not have been any nicer. Such great people who really aim to make your stay comfortable and happy. The hotel is incredibly basic and lives up to its two star rating. It's nothing special but it is clean.
location, and facilities with very nice people poor weather, but can not blame the hotel for that
the friendly family atmosphere.this hotel was special due to the ambience,quality and friendlinees of all staff ...particulary the owners who really put in the extra effort to make your stay enjoyable
Very convenient, just like stay at home.
I would recommend this heaven of peace to anyone who wants to relax in Provence and enjoy a different way of life for a while. Breakfast is a little bit basic, so we prepared it ourselves in the kitchenette of our room.
Quietness and relaxing atmosphere
The general atmosphere and impression is inconsistent with the price of a very good if not luxury hotel that its price and description implies; the termal waters and other spa procedures turned out to be difficult to obtain (special reservations are required for everything in this city and the hotel does not help with this, just charging extra for any little service); you feel unwilling intruder there rather than a guest
Welcoming staff, excellent food with very quiet hotel and surroundings. The bar closing just after 10pm. Needs a closing time of at least 11pm for guests, as there are no coffee making facilities in room.
The restaurant is high quality and children friendly. Tennis court could be better maintained
friendless of staff, quiet ambiance. no
The hotel was easy to find and the room comfortable and clean. It has a nice swimming pool. The staff had a tofee nosed attitude and the breakfast considering the price was very poor.
Hotel is a little gem with excellent facilities and health suite. Pool is small with limited sun beds but the service at the hotel was excellent, as was the food.It is situated within easy walking distance of the village centre and lakes are easily within reach for access to water sports. A very enjoyable stay. We had 2 rooms. In one the air conditioning worked very well, in the other it did not.
Location; large, light airy bedroom and bathroom Only dinner option available was very expensive gourmet menu - not suitable for a vegetarian (me) or my teenage children.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Restuarant was of a 5* standard, although not stuffy, food was excellent, the best of our holiday. Outdoor pool was great with plent of sunbeds. Garage parking avalaible. Really well run hotel, we completely relaxed here. Will definately return.
Hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful. Interconnecting rooms (118/119) suited us very well. Lot of noise from people above using shower in the morning
Clean, comfortable and functional No coffee makong facility in the room
It was a very comfortable hotel with a very nice restaurant adjacent to it. It was in a location that was quite difficult to find.
Me and my wife we liked our stay at the hotel very much, though we've stayed there only twoo nights. Stuff was frendly and willing to help. Disign is provansal, which is good. Double superior room was good and clean. Breakfast is not grand, but was enough fro us to start the day. Great location just outside Manosque which is easy to reach by freeway right in the heart of Haute Provance. And finally the restaurant "La Table" is great. I really don't now what to say, except for the old iron. You should buy a new one. Keep up!
It a very nice, clean and quiet hotel with beautiful interior. A little bit far from the city, but if you have car it's not a problem.
This hotel felt the most like home on our trip. No complaints! I forgot my hair dryer and they graciously provided one to us. It also has air conditioning that actually works! Unlike the other three hotels we stayed at that had conditioning that was sub par at best. Wished we could have spent the whole trip here.
lovely hotel with very helpful staff. Restaurant attached was excellent. Very peaceful area
Nice quiet hotel, well situated on the hills of Manosque but still at a walking distance to the old town. Rooms nicely furnitured in provence style. Sunny outdoor swimming pool. Occitane products provided for the bathroom. Excellent reception. We were sorry not being able to stay longer.
Excellent restaurant on same premises. Easy parking. Free WiFi.
Hotel/address is missing on GPS. Keep watching on road arrows in Manosque with the Hotel name. 10-15 minutes drive from L`Occitane factory, 5 minutes drive from Manosque center. Pool on-site, terrace with chairs/table is convenient. Room is pleasant.
clean hotel, good parking place, nice view, good breakfast at the balcony
I had requested a room overlooking pool and did not mind that I had not got this but so did not mention on arrival but they phoned and told me that I had been put in wrong room and they changed me the day after so in 2 nights I had 2 lovely rooms I thought it was wonderful, the staff were brilliant.The breakfast is very good could not fault it
We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights and used it as our main base to tour Provence and the Riveaira. It's location is ideal adjacent to the town pedestrian area with access to a varied selection of restaurants, shops and attractions including weekly markets. The hotel has it's own parking at the rear where there is a very good quality restaurant beside the swimming pool. During our stay it was quiet at night and the restaurant closes around 1100 The town felt safe late at night with many visitors evident. The room was comfortable and quite, the breakfast was very good and in general everything suited our extended stay quite well.
Town centre but tranquil.
Good, central location in pleasant village, nice restaurant & pool area Small rooms with no air conditioning
Exellent location directly adjacent to the lovely pedestrianised old town and chateau. Good choice at Breakfast in pleasant breakfast room. We had a large room with modern shower room and balcony which was very comfortable. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Although the hotel restaurant for dinner was excellent on the 2 occasions used the menu was a bit too rich and 'gourmet ' for regular use and the limited menu did not change in the 4 days we were there . However there is a wide range of good eating places within easy walking distance.
The staff were friendly and helpful, it was in a good prximity to the old town. The directions for geting there were poor
staff friendly and helpfull, location is very good, next to the restaurants, shopping and see sites, parking available is very convenient. Room was lovely seemed to be newly refurbished, bathroom clean & very modern. Location of the trash container was near the swimming pool and what seems to be a play area, although there was a big nice terrace for relaxing through out the day, it turns to be noisy and exposed during evening and night due to the busy restaurant opposite the rooms, so as we cant do anything regarding the noise, at least a curtain will help and add privacy to the rooms.
Kind staff, nice restaurant, 3 course dinner for EUR 23,-, quiet, large pool with shade, large room, bathroom just refurbished, free parking, close to town There is no air conditioning in the hotel, at least a ceiling fan in the room would be nice
A beautifully restored old building in the town centre. Good but smallish swimming pool. Strong smell of drains at times. Our room was not ready when we arrived.
Very central, good choice of breakfast, good sized family room
This hotel is located in a charming village and well placed for walking, cycling and exploring beautiful countryside. The breakfast was ample. The hotel pool was a good size, free WiFi excellent and and large car park.
Located close to highway but no noise problems in rooms. Air con was nice. Hotel address is a little vague. A help to travellers with a GPS could be the GPS coordinates.
The room was very much like a travelodge in the UK so a room and bathoom. Also it had a modern feel about it and was very clean. It also had a desk and you only had to ask for a cable to connect your computer to the internet.
The hotel was clean,everything worked well we really did not have any facility for a family we had too have 2 rooms 1 adult one child,one adult one child.
The receptionist remind me of René Artois, from Allô allô, was very nice and helpful. Large bedroom. Good parking space. The ac "screamed" from time to time if it was off, so we left it on all night, even if it wasn't necessary. When we arrived late at night the blue neon lights were off, so it was hard to find the hotel.
Clean, friendly, good value. No toilet brush, and loo neds some bleach.
We liked the restaurant. Good food, good value, nice atmosphere.
Near the exit of the city Too close to the road meant too much noise. Also the staff could not speak my language or english
convenient location Hotel decoration is aged and was not clean. We had dinner at the hotel and it was of very poor quality
Friendly, efficient staff. Convenient location. Clean, efficient room. Comfort of bed. Good bathroom with very good shower. Quality of restaurant food (except breakfast buffet) was inferior.
Excellent, quiet, location. We were welcomed by the multi-lingual owners as if we were family. Were shown to our room, which was very clean and comfortable, and given brochures for the local attractions. excellent four-course dinner every night, cooked by the owners, using local organic produce. Superb service. Great choice for breakfast. There was a complimentary bottle of water in the room, but we would also have liked tea/coffee making facility; although available in the lounge, this isn’t always convenient. However, can’t wait to stay there again!
The hotel was well run, staff friendly and the breakfast was lovely and fresh. The room with the pool table & selection of books & games was a good idea. There was plenty of information available on activities in the area and the staff were happy to give you recommendations. We had a very pleasant stay there and would return again.
The hotel is in the middle of Provence and close to Verdon Gorge. The room was small with one small window and its location was in a remote village with no restaurants etc. If you did not want the in house dinner ( a set 3 course menu) at 30 euro per. head you had to drive over 5 km to find an alternative restaurant.
The location is great, the decor the garden, having a nice breakfast outside.. Great and relaxing surroundings.. Tv remote didn't work.
Everything works like clockwork here - check in by 7:30pm, dinner at 8:00pm sharp etc. This commitment to organisation and quality ensures a very good standard of facilities and service, especially with the food. Tranquil country location. Highly recommended. Everything works like clockwork here ..... If, like us, you have come to Provence for some relaxation and rest and find yourself checking in a few minutes late or skipping breakfast to catch up on sleep you may find yourself disturbing the daily routine.
