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
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 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.
the gardens and the pool area, the attention of the owners Our room was too small
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.
Food is excellent, and the hotel is very nicely decorated.
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
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
The friendliness of the staff and the food was fantastic Need a map to get there!!!
Well situated for visiting the pretty town (apart from close to railway with infrequent trains). Friendly, helpful staff. Very hot room during summer (no aircon, attic). In need of a little maintenance (paint peeling in shower...)
The couple running the hotel are really friendly and helpful. The terrace is quite nice. The price is hard to beat considering hotels in the area are expensive. The reception closes a little bit early at 8pm. We had to rush to get there on time. The room is hot in the summer.
the location is not good. It's not so convenient to get there..there is not many places for sightseeing nearby or even a restaurant...the worst thing is that on the day I arrived I already told the staff that I would check out the next morning, they still charge me for the second night from my credit card...do I have to live there for two nights even if I don't like there? do I have to pay for the second night that I didn't even live?
Friendly, good service. Rooms clean, Bed very comfortable Shower old and difficult to slide screens shut. Kept coming off from runners.
This quaint hotel was delightful. While not having all of the luxuries of higher priced accommodations, the staff was great, the setting was lovely, the room was adequate for our needs. The beds are older and the room decor is out of date. Keep in mind this place must be 100 years old or more.
extremly plesant hotel, nice, very clean, romantic, lovely place to stay. I recommend it. nothing
The host and hostess are very friendly the shower room is unexceptional small and old.
The town, where the hotel is situated, is nice and quiet. The staff was very helpful and hospitable. We arrived later than official checking in hours, but nevertheless we successfully checked in. There is a terrace with tables near the hotel. There is free parking places, which were seen through the windows of the room. The breakfast is served in the rooms. The town is rather close to The Pont du Gard. There was no air conditioning in the room, only fan. The bathroom was rather small.
good price, clean room showers was 2 stege below the room
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.
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.
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.
perfect kitchen and stuff, nice pool and atmosphere
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.
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
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.
Friendly staff, cleanliness, excellent value for the cost
close to restaurants and shopping mall. The front desk counter was friendly and helpful the parking compound was dusty.
Room was good and breakfast was excellent No swimming pool
A friendly greeting - and nothing much to follow. Was disappointing - distanced from everything - rooms dark and shower had to be held up by hand
I wish we could have stayed longer, unfortunately this is one of those little jewels that allow you to sit back and relax. Great spot for day trips to all the surrounding highlights. A bit out of the way, but the peace and quiet and pool made it worthwhile.
The hospitality was very good and the peacefullness of the hotel was very satisfying,so was the nearby restaurant. The shower was a bit weak.
Owner is not a people person at all. But aside from his grumpiness the place was very nice in beautiful countryside. the owner
The pool is spotless and there are lots of loungers. All rooms have a little outside area and it is lovely to sit out and drink a glass of wine. The house wine is not overpriced. The rooms are tastefully decorated and everything seems really clean. there is a pleasant boules pitch. You can hear trains running by quite a lot, even at night. However this did not affect my sleeping much as the noise was a pleasant rumble and reminded me of my childhood! The associated restaurant is a bit pricey and only fair, but there is nowhere else to go. That said, we find most of the restaurants in the region over-priced so this should not trouble you too much.
Outstanding hotel and not at all a typical one. Definitely need a car to get to Avignon, so be warned if you will be travelling without transport. Fantastic pool with a simple and relaxing poolside breakfast buffet in the morning - a great way to start the day. I enjoyed that our rooms (and almost all the rooms I believe) were in separate buildings with a small table out front - and plenty of area for kids to run around and play. A great value. We'd definitely return if we needed a place to stay in the area in the future. Nothing.
The room was comfortable with a good bathroom. No air conditioning, but that was no problem when arriving in the evening and leaving in the morning. The swimming pool was good to cool down. I felt that the restaurant was aiming to tourists, presentation is more important than taste. There is not much shade during the day around the swimming pool. The pool can not be used for a long period in the evening, night and morning.
Quiet environment, nice service, pool, nice location small rooms
we have been given a room with the pool in fron. we had breakfast by the pool. very nice experience staying in this hotel.
The restaurant is excellent also the waitresses. A very peaceful location. We love hearing the tgv trains passing by.which were very soothing. Very good parking facilities under shady trees... On arrival we had a swarm of ants in the bathroom ; through the vent. However, the receptionist delt with the infestation very swiftly, the cleaner left the remains around.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
