    « Happily Surprised »

    I arrived here around 7.00pm and was checked in by a really helpful lady on reception. My room was great, a large lovely comfortable bed, a lovely bathroom with a great deep bath and rainfall sort of shower from the ceiling. I went to the restaurant for my evening meal and had gorgeous garlic mushrooms for starters and a lovely fillet steak for my main, very nice. All washed down with a glass of wine. I retired to my room and had a lovely sleep. Breakfast in the morning was delicious with lots to choose from. I would stay here again if I go back to Avignon.

    « Mosquito central »

    What a shame. If the main thing a hotel offers is a night's sleep this can't score well. Whilst the room was lovely it had a serious infestation problem with many mosquitos in the ducting biting all night. As the air conditioning doesn't work you have a choice of open the window to the ferocious insects, no air, or hot air. Food was nice but expensive. Extremely helpful Indonesian receptionist rather better than the 14 year old who didn't know where the hotel was.

    « Great hotel for an overnight stay! »

    Welcoming staff, rooms are on the small side but very clean and well fitted out our bathroom also had a big bath. The beds are comfortable.. The restaurant food was good, service was quick and friendly. There is also a swimming pool which we didn't use but looked very inviting!!

    « If you are driving, this is the best place in town »

    The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are slightly on the small side but very well equipped, clean with great bathrooms. The garden and pool are very pleasant. The restaurant serves good food but it has a very limited selection of dishes and it is pricy. I ate there on the first night, noticed that most other patrons were Dutch. Therefore the dishes were what the Dutch consider to be French food :-) There is a secure free parking for your car. I was told there was a bus going into town but I used my car, it was easy from there to the inner city parking garage. I recommend this hotel because it is safe, clean, pleasant and much cheaper than its equivalent inside the town.

    « GOOD HOTEL BUT BAD STAIRCASE OF THE SWIMMING POOL... »

    Best Western hotels are a medium class one , with a reasonable price & service and this one complies with the expectations , but this time I would like to point out one problem we had with the staircase of the swimming pool : It wasn't fixed well on the ground an at the moment to get in or out of the pool a dangerous movement acurred. My wife got a sprain in her ankle because of this. They were warned about it . The maintenance of that sensible facility is a must. It happened during 2 days , later we don't know because we left the hotel.

    « Great hotel for a few nights stay, . »

    Not overly impressed with Avignon, once your in the old town, its fine, outside the old town walls, we never felt safe. Hotel fine as protected behind electric gates, Hotel approx 10 minutes & 15euro cab ride into the centre. Loads of bars restaurants to choose from. Hotel clean, modern & boutique style, excellent breakfast, but pricey compared to other places, but convenient , as hotel is isolated from bars & cafes. would I use again.. Yes because of price, but if you can afford to stay with old city walls, go for that.. your safer.

    « Very good hotel »

    Free parking / a friendly welcome and a lovely room - all the staff were very attentive and friendly to be honest. The pool area is lovely and the dinner we had was of a very high standard. The hotel is near a bus stop - €1.30 to go into Avignon centre and takes about 15 minutes. Breakfast has no English option and is very bread fruit and continental breakfast based but was nice and plenty of choice. Use this hotel as a base to visit Avignon orange pont du gard and nimes. Would def stay again.

    « Very relaxing experience »

    This is how a really nice hotel experience should feel! Very kind and supportive staff, beautiful and clean facilities (pool and the garden) beautiful rooms. I would just expect little more choice at breakfast and a mini bar. Easily recommended! Would definitely return.

    « Good 3-star hotel »

    Nice 3-star hotel that is modern and set in pleasant gardens with swimming pool. Staff are very friendly and competent. The hotel is in its own gated grounds, around 8-10 minutes drive from the walled city of Avignon. There's also a regular bus (No. 2) that passes close to the hotel every 15 minutes until late evening. The area around the hotel, apart from a major hospital, is not a proposition for an evening walk and you're best to spend time in the main city area. Overall, we had an enjoyable four nights there.

    « Friendly staff, great room & close to transport »

    We were greeted by friendly, informative staff who were happy to profer suggestions on areas we might like to visit and the best way to get there! The room was modern and well equipped and the restaurant meal was equal to anything we have had in our two weeks in France. Best way to visit the old town is by bus which stops less than 50 metres from reception. Our car stayed in the hotel secure park for the 2 nights of our stay.

    « Lovely 3 star »

    Stayed one night with the family. It was a plesent surprise to find this lovely hotel. Service and food was good. My boys loved the pool and the ping pong table. Only two floors so it is a quiet place. Short taxi ride to the city center 8 to 13 €.

    « comfortable nice hotel »

    great hotel if you have a car and you want to use it as a base for trips. about 9 minutes drive from the old city of Avignon, and located in a quiet street of a suburb. The rooms are big and comfortable, great shower, rich breakfast and the tables are facing the lovely garden and the small pool and very helpful stuff.

    « Fantastic all round!! »

    This hotel is fantastic & well deserves its 3 star rating. From the street it doesn't look so appealing but step behind the wall & you are greeted with a well designed & pretty space. Lovely outdoor area, with pool & dining courtyard & good sized/equipped reception area & rooms. The hotel is modern & has everything you need. Nice complimentary items (hot drinks + extras available from reception). Bathroom is slightly on the small size but very functional & well equipped. Beds & pillows are very comfortable too. We had breakfast & dinner at the hotel restaurant & both times we really enjoyed the food. Great menu, excellent presentation, lovely flavours...couldn't ask for more! What really makes this hotel great though is the staff. All are very friendly, speak great English & bend over backwards to help you & make you feel at home. I can't speak highly enough of them & just listening to other guests who were staying at the same time as us, they felt the same. Particular thanks to Novie, who was so kind & helpful & we looked forward to coming back second time around to be served by her. She is a real credit to the team. Thanks for a great (x2) stay!!!

    « Exceptonally friendly and homely atmosphere »

    We stayed here for two nights while visiting the lovely town of Avignon. It was a short bus ride from the town and the stop was directly outside the hotel. We were bowled over by the friendliness of the staff from the moment that we arrived until we left. The lady that greeted us on arrival was thoroughly professional and was genuine in her interest in making our stay just perfect. We had dinner in the restaurant and were spoiled with first class service and food from beginning to end. We wanted to make a special mention and thanks to Novie who was delightful in her service and conversation in fluent English.

    « Does exactly what it says on the tin »

    We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is modern and the rooms are small but functional and extremely clean. There are no shops or restaurants around the hotel so you either need a car or to take the bus into Avignon but we found the bus stop, as advertised, within 20m of the hotel. Although the bus is regular during the day, beware that it stops running regularly after 9.20pm. We had breakfast but, while it was OK, found it to be a bit expensive, particularly when you can get a perfectly nice breakfast at a boulanger for a fraction of the cost. Dinner was very nice however. The staff were bend over backwards helpful throughout our stay. All in all a very nice hotel and excellent value for money (we booked online and got a significant discount to the advertised rate).

    « Delightful surprise »

    After escaping the flood in Cannes, I could not drive far so we took the first available hotel in Avignon France. The location is clearly for business or people dealing with the local hospital, BUT the service put the Raddisson Blu in Cannes to shame. So did the kitchen. Kind souls who could tell we had had a very bad time, when we came down to dinner after talking about ordering take out chinese, the concierge asked why we didn't ask her for help. (The person at the Chinese place couldn't understand my French). I explained I was too exhausted to fight the language fight. The entire staff cosseted us, with an immaculate steak smothered in a wild mushroom sauce, a firs gras du canard that was divinely sweet and astringent at the same time, and perfectly crispy frites, to go with the beef and the double serving of sauce. The house wines were a lovely crispy rose, and a richly flavoured red that complimented the beef perfectly. And the kicker, at the end I ordered Armagnac for my kids and a Marc for myself, and the pours were at least doubles. They were incredibly generous. Again, service can overwhelm poor things like location. And a conscientious chef with good ingredients can save an otherwise horrible day.

    « Pretty good hotel »

    Stayed here for two nights. The hotel itself is a bit modern to my taste but good. Ample parking is available. As pointed out by others, you do need a car to go to the old city (well, you could take a taxi of course). We had dinner in the hotel after arrival, quality was good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK but no more than that. Elevator was broken and stayed that way during our stay.

    « Good two days »

    We stayed here for two days. Hotel is not in the City centre but there is a goodbye service which takes about 10 minutes to the city walls. Convenient for car parking and easy access by car to places like Pont du Gard. Comfortable beds. Clean rooms and fairly quiet (some traffic noise, some bedroom doors need oiling!). Pleasant staff. We didn't eat in in the evenings - breakfast good. We would stay here again.

    « A bit far from the city centre »

    We stayed here twice and enjoyed the comfortable bed and generous breakfast buffet. The bathroom was painfully small, and the pool is not large. It's on a quiet street more than a mile from the old city, making it rather complicated to get back and forth.

    « Highly recommend staying here if you have a car. »

    Loved this hotel. The property appears to be fairly new and I am also partial to the modern style. My biggest pet peeve when I book hotels in Europe is that the pictures almost never represent what you actually get. I am happy to say that this is not the case with this property. As with my other hotel reviews I am breaking down the rating based on various criteria. Location: 3 stars, really this is not near any tourist attraction. You need to have a car or use the local transit system. Property: 4 stars, you get free parking, a nice pool area and a very nicely kept property. Rooms: 4 stars, rooms are clean, air conditioning works wonderfully and beautiful modern bathrooms. Staff: 4 stars, very friendly and helpful staff. Note: We did not eat at the hotel so I cannot rate the food or service. In general, great hotel in a quite neighborhood. Definitely recommend this hotel if you are driving.

    « Convenient for an overnight but nothing else good to say about it. »

    Room adequate, car parking good, restaurant poor, service poor, location terrible for city amenities. Disgraceful restaurant service with an officious member of staff who was actually only a trainee refusing tables to guests on the basis that did not have a reservation, who on check in had been told they did not require a reservation. Don't need that on a long journey. Not likely to repeat visit

    « Garden oasis in business park by the tgf station »

    The trivago map showed this hotel as being in the centre of avignon which it is not and when I booked direct I was not advised of this so was very disappointed on arrival. Good points Clean room Comfy bed Nice bathroom Lovely pool area and garden very relaxing Bad points The manager was very well rehearsed and mean when I asked for a partial refund due to the lack of clarity about the location Things to know Great stopover if you are arriving by tgf - you can walk to the hotel from there there is a bus from the hotel from the centre which is about 1euro each, much better than taxi at 25euros I would choose the very central hotel de l'horloge above this every time our friends stayed there it was cheaper and better

    « Very pleasant stay! Most recommended! »

    If you are to spend a few days in Avignon this is definitely a nice place to stay. Clean and very quiet and situated in a good position even if (like us) you want to visit places in the countryside near the city. Location: the hotel is 4 km away from the downtown and in a very good position, because you can enjoy the tranquility of the place and still you can get to the old town within 10 minutes by car. The only "problem" is that there are no restaurants nor pubs near the hotel, so you have to take the car and go downtown if you want to eat or have a drink. The room: it was super comfortable even if we stayed in the "Standard room" (the cheapest). Both the room and the bathroom were VERY clean and the place was so quiet. The room is equipped with anything you may need: a good WiFi connection, a tea pot with coffee, tea and milk offered by the hotel, a small wardrobe, satellite TV etc.. The restaurant: on the menu there's not much choice and I think it is a bit too expensive, so if you can, I suggest to dine in one of the many restaurant and bistro in the old town. The extras: the hotel as a nice garden, also very quiet, with a nice swimming-pool, some beach chairs and a place where you can have breakfast or dinner outside. The staff is very nice and helpful.

    « Serenity »

    Can't say enough nice things about this hotel. Was pleasantly surprised at the modern Decor, and the amount of space,both indoors and out. All hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite plentiful with many choices,also had dinner at the hotel restaurant and it was excellent, purchased a lovely bottle of wine which we took to our room to enjoy. The hotel is located away from the city center and we chose that since we did have a car. This is a tranquil hotel which is a nice treat after traveling and sightseeing all day.

    « Fabulous Staff »

    We needed a hotel for 2 nights when our travel plans were disrupted. We did not realise that the Avignon festival was on and this was the only option we could afford even though the rates had almost doubled due to the festival. The bus to Avignon stops right outside and its really easy to catch it there and back. We had one meal at the hotel which was just fine. The menu is limited but the food we received was great. The staff, especially the indonesian woman (sorry didn't get the name) went out of her way to be helpful. She is a real asset to this hotel. The reception staff also had wonderful attitudes and really demonstrated superb customer service. The pool was a life saver. We had a room on the top floor with a little balcony which was fabulous. The only variable was that the shower needed a bit of a clean. If you run blue lights in the shower they show up all the blemishes. Apart from that and the outrageous price which we reluctantly agreed to pay, this was a good stay.

    « Excellent »

    We could find nothing bad to say about this hotel or its food. I would recommend it to anyone. The local bus service into Avignon ran on time was fast and low cost. A little studying of the time table reduced waiting to a minimum, dinner was excellent.

    « A bit far from Avignon Rempart »

    The restaurant and the pool area are all together surrounded by a nice garden. Dining alfresco was very enjoyable. The hotel is not at walking distance from the train stations nor the Avignon historic district and there is no shuttle service provided by the hotel, bus or taxi are your only options. The reception staff was outstanding but the restaurant servers were inexperienced and slow, the food portion was small for the price.

    « Great Stay »

    Lovely ambience in the hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Slightly out of the centre but the city bus route was convenient and regular. Great facilities and easy manner. Gardens and poolside area was a delightful area to relax in

    « Hot week in Avignon! »

    A gem of a hotel near Avignon. Temperatures were over 30 degrees and the beautiful lawned garden and outdoor pool were a wonderful refreshing retreat after sightseeing in the city and towns of Provence. We arrived by Eurostar and caught bus 14 from station directly to hotel. All bus journeys are 1 euro 30 and the no 2 bus takes ten minutes to the city. Hotel was very welcoming and spotlessly clean. We didn't eat at the hotel but there was an outdoor restaurant. Kettle and fridge in room were very handy. Bathroom was newly renovated with great shower and bath. We caught train to Arles and Orange and sailed on the Rhone. A fascinating destination and a very pleasant place to stay. Merci beaucoup!

    « Secure and modern »

    The gated compound provides ample secure parking for a visit to Avignon or a night passing through. The rooms are modern and bright with all amenities needed. The hotel staff are exceptionally welcoming and helpful. The restaurant serves a very good meal in bright surroundings. Make sure you have good directions for the last 700 m. from the roundabout beforehand.

    « Fab staff and fab hotel »

    Party of 4 adults stayed for 'special' wedding anniversary. Weather beautiful except for freak storm (heavy rain, thunder, lightning, hail) one evening which wiped out swimming pool for next 3 days. Hotel very comfortable and exceptionally high level of customer service from staff - thank you. Limited dinner menu of 3 starters, mains and desserts which apart from one daily special of each didn't change. Hotel on no. 2 bus route so easy and cheap (E1.30 which can last for 1 hour on multiple buses) to get into town but beware last bus back in evenings Mon-Thurs 21.20. Taxis congregate at TGV station rather than Gare Central and they didn't answer phone! Breakfast (continental) at hotel E14 - we found a lovely café in town that did coffee and pastry for around E5. But overall a fantastic hotel and if we were to visit Avignon in the future we'd definitely stay again.

    « Very nice hotel i quiet neighbourhood »

    Very nice hotel in the quiet neighbourhood, away from the city noise. Comfortable beds, rooms on a small side but adequate. Free WiFi, very helpful staff. Leave your car and take bus to the old city of Avignon. Relax in a quiet garden by the pool after sightseeing.

    The hotel is an oasis in the middle of a strange and slightly hostile area of Avignon. It has lovely gardens and swimming pool, good friendly & helpful staff. The dinner is overpriced and poor quality

    « A great find in Provence! »

    This is a gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Avignon. Amazing service - we were welcomed like long lost friends- and a fantastic room with a big balcony. Perfect! We had breakast and dinner at the hotel. The food is really excellent and far exceeded our expectations. We booked an exective room and weren't disappointed.

    « BEAUTIFUL HIP HOTEL AT VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE »

    everything was good except there was no elevator. if you have a heavy bag, you will end up growing up some muscles. it is a little hike from the hotel to the old city but is still walkable, through a less desirable neighborhood.
