Staff were excellent, polite, informative, interested.
Very conveniently located close to the off-ramp of the Autoroute, nice hotel with parking spaces right in front of the rooms (Motel-style), good breakfast, good restaurant
The evening meal was simple but very good and fair price.Rooms very clean. in quiet area as requested. Rooms rather old and tired and very small. A/c did not work on warm night. ( Clearly unservicable for some time). B and b was expensive for quality of hotel.
It was easy to find off the motorway. The Staff were very friendly, and the rooms were updated, and clean. Good Blow Dryer too! Only that I don't think the Aircon was working in our room.
Good location, clean, comfortable, silently, friendly staff. Free private parking just in front our room. Near the city turistic attractions: Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Avignon. Nothing.
Convenient location and very good restaurant facilities
Conveneient, friendly staff and excellent town.
A very fresh hotel; rooms were of the standard we would expect and breakfast was excellent, and at dinner it was well represented and extremely high degree of food presentation and cooking with excellent humour from good staff. Nothing to dislike
Very nice and quiet! Excellent Dinner. Very friendly staff. Secure place and parking ground. Close to Avignon. Will come back...
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 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.
The friendliness of the staff and the food was fantastic Need a map to get there!!!
Relaxing, clean and friendly Too expensive by far and poor location
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.
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
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 location was very good since it was near the highway. Made it convenient to drive to other destinations.
This is the poorest hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was dirty the whole hotel is in very poor condition and despite complaining no one offered to make any reduction in our bill I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.
It was not too large(and therefore impersonal) so 'small & friendly'. Also an easy stroll into the city centre and I also enjoyed the rural walks from the hotel in the opposite direction. The breakfast was excellent value. We stayed 4 nights and would have liked a little more wardrobe space as we were attending a wedding. A set of drawers for shirts, socks and underwear instead of shelves would be better. Only one towel per person is inadequate and shampoo was not provided.
Easy access, big parking lot, friendly staff, swimming pool (small but in good condition), restaurant and breakfast ample opening hours (7-10 am/pm). Restaurant prices high in comparison with room prices, poor breakfast, noisy air conditioning in room, small bathroom without hair dryer.
Very pleasant atmosphere. Staff helpful and kind. Relaxed and comfortable stay.
The position to tourist attractions was good.Good eating for night meals around hotel.The market outside the door on a Thursday was a bonus
friendly service, once you found the hotel pleasant, central location, clean rooms
Great Location, Very good service Small room, shower and plumbing very old!
very helpful and informative staff; charming setting shower fixed on wall at 5ft.6ins high; I am 6ft.2ins..
Well laid out, up-to-date rooms, helpful staff, friendly environment, good parking available near by, good pricing, clean.
The staff was very good, they took the time to tell us whatever we wanted to know. The room was very comfortable and quiet.The parking on the street was very easy and the access to the highway was very good. Excellent location. The bathroom was ok but the shower stall was small and the door didn't work well. The free WIFI was a problem for the three days that we were there but the owner tried to rectify the problem without success but he tried hard.He was having an expert in the day we left.
Very good location, "near to everything". Fine breakfast.
The hotel was very comfortable, well decorated and furnished. Although the buffet breakfast was generous and varied, some fresh fruit would be welcome. They need to ensure that the taxi firms they contact on behalf of guests are reliable.
The staff was great! Very helpful especially about accommodating our late arrival and parking. Very friendly night and morning staff! statue at the front greeting guests
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.....
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.
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
perfect kitchen and stuff, nice pool and atmosphere
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.
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.
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 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.
The Hotel is Stunning, one of the highlights of our trip. The staff and owners are friendly and helpful. The food was amazing, best meal on our trip. Overall a wonderful experience, we will beback. Not a thing wrong
Location is prime, the Chateau is located up on the small hill right in the middle of the vineyards,there is also a miniature arc that resembles the Chateau at the entrance driveway so you won't miss it. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated (period decoration) and the toiletries provided were attentive. Staff speaks perfect English and extremely helpful and nice. Definitely the place to stay for the whole french experience. There is also a swimming pool, but it wasn't open the time we were there (September). There is also wine tasting within the vicinity. Our friends stayed in the cheapeast classic room which was extremely basic, it almost felt like the little maid's room tuck in the corner, although the bathroom was top specs. We stayed in the room which was a slight upgrade, and it was a million times different, it was worth the extra 20EUR for the room. Breakfast is continental and quite expensive.The most disappointing was room facilities, there was no kettle or any warm drinks in the room. Our friend had to ask for hot water, and the reply we had was hot water is only provided in the deluxed bedroom, but in the end they gave her some hot water as she wasn't feeling well. Considering the room prices, I thought there would be provision for hot drinks in the room.
The hotel staff were excellent! We could not find a restaurant to eat at a nearby town and returned to the Castle hungry after they closed the restaurant and they sent for the cook who returned and made us dinner. Excellent service!!! Rooms were great however needs a bit of repair! Views were incredible!
I liked the site, the castle and the room. The staff, actually the owners, were very frendly. We dined at the restaurant and the meal was really nice. The breakfast at the terrace with a beautiful view was unforgettable. Nothing
It was an incredible setting with very friendly, accomodating staff. It was a highlight of our trip. It is expensive but it was worth it for a special experience. Evening meal was superb. Breakfast is over priced (but so are most French hotel breakfasts) however due to remoteness there are few other options.
staff were very friendly. breakfast was great too. location beautiful.very relaxing
This is a beautiful place for a romantic getaway. The staff are attentive, the food is to die for, the ambience romantic and waking up with a view over the vines is divine......10 out of 10. We have nothing negative to say
We really felt like royalty
setting, building, views, terrace, rooms - all was magnificent No
Fabulous location, well appointed rooms, friendly and compentent staff. Great restaurant (new chef since Feb 2010). Excellent value.
Friendly service, parking availability, and proximity to shopping and city sites without being in an overly-populated and busy area of town. It was a 15 minute walk to the city core, ten minutes to the Roman ruins. The hotel Owner was a pleasure to speak with and learn from. The attached restaurant was also good quality food and not overly expensive. Breakfast for 9 Euros was not worth it, and the closet bakery or market was a 15 minute walk away. With no mini bar (fridge) to keep juice or meats/cheese, there isn't much of an option for breakfast. Appreciating the fact that my visit was off-season, it was still a pain in the butt to have the front door of the hotel locked and front desk unattended during the day.
It was quiet although near train station. Aircon worked fine. Not in the city center
Very clean, very good food, helpful staff. Very good value. Door fittings rather poor, decor rather tired.
Easy to find because it was near the train station. It was clean and had a decent breakfast. Staff was helpful
Handy for station and not too far from town.
It was quiet It is in dire need of a full refurbishment and the pool area needs attention
The staff were very helpful and friendly, they even cooked us a steak when we arrived at the hotel one night after the kitchens had closed.
The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The garden and small pool were very peaceful and relaxing. Our room, a standard double, was very small. The bathroom was tiny and there was no light in the shower, or anywhere to put shampoo, shower gel etc.
It had a small swimming pool set in a private terrace. Also had secure parking. Noise from the train station opposite, however not too intrusive.
Friendly staff and comfortable room I thought the access to the hotel by car was a little 'tight'
Great location, within walking distance to major tourist attractions and Roman ruins.
We enjoyed our stay very much. Our room was big and comfortable as was our bathroom. Great location. We would gladly stay here again. They were in the middle of some construction, but it really did not affect our stay.
The room originally booked was substandard. However, with a small additional payment we were up-graded to a more acceptable room.
Family-operated(probably) and welcoming hotel. Some parts are under renovation.
Hotel receptionist was very helpful Decor needs updating
Breakfast was good in a pleasant courtyard Hotel is under substantial construction. It will be lovely when finished, but our room was very dated, and not good value for money.
Friendly, helpful hotel staff.
Very clean room in a delightful quaint setting yet we had all the most modern amenities. Very good breakfast.
location, older style atmosphere of hotel. Price-a bit expensive.
staff was gracious and knowledgeable mattress was very uncomfortable, pillows were mediocre quality. wifi not available in bedroom
car parking, park aroud the hotel in my booking paper a check in time was shown as 12:00. I arrived at 13:30, but my room still has not been ready. it would taken 45 min additionaly.
I like about the Chateau de Varenne: big room, antique furnishings, location near Avignon and Orange, beautiful garden and friendly stuff
the setting, the atmosphere
Very beautiful hotel with Provence country style decoration. Nice couple (Sylvia & Dider) to serve us. No restaurant service. If there is additional playground or games room for children will be perfect.
We enjoyed the luxurious surrounding and the beauty of the chateau. The interious were of an exquisite standard and the hosts were very attentive.
The Hotel was very nice and quite. The rooms are very nice decorated and big. Bathroom are nice and clean. Beautiful Garden and Surroundings. To bad that there was no restaurant in the Hotel. No Minibar in the room, especially with no restaurant it's a pity!!
We enjoyed the decoration of each room, we were splitted in 3 rooms, but also the saloons downstairs. The admosphere in all the Chateau is really nice. The staff prerfect. Really nice gardens, perfect place to visit Abignon. Place for breakfast at the terreace amazing. The shower/bathroom looks perfect under the Chateau point of view although were not confortable enough to take a shower or bath
A calm and relaxing environment. Large rooms with period furnishings, comfortable beds. Friendly welcoming staff. Would prefer a proper shower rather than roll top bath with hand set and no screen. Made showering very difficult. Perhaps a discrete reminder to other guests not to use mobile phones on the terrace during breakfast !!
Really cheap, had all the basic necessities in the room, 15 minute walk to the center of town, towels included It is a completely a side of the road budget hotel and bathrooms are extremely small. You get what you pay for and it was really inexpensive.
location near motorway
Conveniently positioned close to the town Noise form dogs in the hotel
Comfortable bed Room air conditioner blew hot continuously. Reception doors were missing handles
The helpfulness of the evening staff member The very small shower
The use of the Campanile restaurant which was good value for money and the meals very tasty.
The hotel is located on the entry of the city, very good accesible from the motorway (close to the exit). Smaller clean rooms. Enough parking places. Light dinner is offered in the nearby hotel. Breakfast is simple. The old city centre is good accessible by walk. The bathrooms are very small.
The price was right. We paid 39€ for one night and we felt the hotel was adequate for our needs. No frills, but we weren't expecting much and didn't stay long. Just a place to rest our heads on a road trip. Bed was reasonably comfortable. The automatic reception is convenient, but a little confusing. You park your care at the gate and then walk inside and use your credit card from the booking, and they issue you a room key and parking code. Nice to have a gate around the parking area. Only two towels provided. Very small bathroom and the shower water easily can get all over the bathroom. There was one electric outlet in the room, and none in the bathroom. Note: If you select the triple room, the third bed is overhead like a bunk bead. And if you don't select the triple room, there is still a place for an overhead bunk bed; just no mattress and you don't get a third towel. Warning: the GPS coordinates for the hotel on Booking.com were incorrect. Took us to a dark dead-end road with no hotels on it. It was a little scary; luckily our GPS had the hotel in its database so we found it after that.
Inexpensive, convenient location near major highway. Tiny room, tinier bathroom. Impossible to shower without flooding the floor. Poor lighting in room. Everything made of plastic. Breakfast room like a mess-hall at camp, with small round stools (from kindergarten) to sit on. Asked for extra pillow to sleep on; was told none was available. No lift.
I suppose, one receives what one pays for. However, description of the hotel on your site did not state that the hotel consists of rooms that feel like containers. The room smelt of a heavy cleaning products, the window was very small, sound proofing non-existent, and the bathroom very small. I DID NOT LIKE this hotel - period.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
Silence, gardens and staffs Due to very weak signal reception, WIFI internet access is not available as described
