    « Beautiful »

    Stayed there 2 weeks ago. Very nice and spacious room with a balcony overlooking the valley and the mountains. Nice linens and very clean. They offered a generous and well presented buffet breakfast well worth the price. Staff were very helpful in locating a doctor in Sartene to see me because of my bronchitis. A nice place to stay.

    « Re-Visit to Sartene Corsica after 20 year gap ! »

    A great pity that Milk was not provided for that "cup of tea" we were told that they needed to "re-stock" THIS IS NOT GOOD Sadly the Restaurant was not open either - THIS IS RATHER BAD FOR A BEST WESTERN GROUP HOTEL

    « Pleasant few days in Sartene »

    I spent a few nights at the hotel after Easter. I was conscious that some of the reviews have been variable so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. However, I thoroughly recommend the hotel. Our room was a good size, clean and modern with a lovely view of the valley. The hotel manager couldn't have been more helpful, but he talked quietly so wasn't all that easy for us to understand with French not being our main language. Will happily stay there again.

    « Best choice »

    Crackling little hotel on three levels, views aplenty. Actually in the Best Western chain, great terrace dining area and pool. Lift from car park to lobby. Tricky to find, but in the right spot for access to the town, despite being on a serious hill. Breakfast (pay locally) is same price as offered on websites, and a bit heavy for the options. Best swing by a bakery on the way out somewhere. Brilliant little gem in the mountains but only twenty minutes from some of the beast beaches in Corsica.

    « Hotel manager has anger management issues -verbally abused »

    The owner/manager has anger management problems and verbally assaulted me over a minor incident of replacing 4 bottles of beverage from the mini bar fridge. I felt threatened and concerned at the time that the manager would physically assault me. He barged into my room, opened the fridge and started shouting at me. He insisted he was giving me an "ed - u - cache - she - ion" while shouting at the top of his voice. After the incident, I went to reception to indicate my fear and disgust at what had transpired. The owner manager was sitting besides the reception staff . She kindly translated that he was not going to attack me physically. Well I do not approve of being verbally abused because I replaced 4 x 300ml bottles with my own beers. Whether this is disrespectful to the management or not, it does not justify such behaviour. It's a real shame because after the incident, he was exceptional nice, offering us a complimentary beverage from the bar and a coffee in the morning. If it was not for this managers/owners anger management problems, I would gladly recommended this hotel to others. There is a risk no doubt that if you perform some act that is not to the managers satisfaction, you will equally be at risk of such behaviour. Occasionally I leave reviews, all positive to date on various sites but feel obliged to warn others. I would except an apology from the owner/manager if he acknowledges his problem and takes steps to seek counselling. There are numerous reviews before and after our stay that confirm his behaviour.

    « Wonderful view of the valley and city »

    We booked this hotel since it was conveniently located outside the village when driving around the island. The room was large, clean and had a wonderful view from the balcony. Spent the eavning on watching the sunset... We didn't try the breakfast. For the price we paid I think it was a really good choice.

    « Ok but not really special »

    Sartene is a nice little town, however there is really not much to see. The hotel itself has a good location with very nice views. There are good parking facilities, however a bit too small for the number of rooms. People at the reception were nice and friendly (even the owner who has very bad commentary in several comments is not unfriendly). The rooms are pretty large with a nice balcony overviewing the city of Sartene and the valley. You can even see the sea far away. Rooms are clean but decoration is rather poor and simple. Breakfast is OK but the choice is limited. With nice weather you can take your breakfast on the terrace. We had dinner in the hotels' restaurant 2 times. It is not bad but not more than that. The atmosphere was pretty cold, a bit of music in the restaurant would help a lot. The hotel has a nice well kept small garden an a small but good situated outside swimming pool. To conclude : it is an average hotel, good to stay for a couple of nights. There is nothing to do in the evening after dinner, even the bar was empty ( Sartene itself, is also really dead in the evening). To discover the south of Corsica, Sartene is a good departure point.

    « A rat/mouse in our room then got yelled at »

    We had a horrible time. In brief, we got to the room in the evening and after 5 mins discovered a rat/mouse in our room. We called the hotel manager and he came into the room in a confrontational manner. He said we were in the "countryside" and therefore this kind of thing was to be expected (the hotel is in a small town). We disputed and said regardless hotels shouldn't have rodents in their room and if this was a potential problem it should be managed. He then started yelling and saying we were making a big deal out of nothing. We felt intimidated and asked him to leave our room and he said "it was HIS hotel and he would come and go as he pleased". We decided we were not happy spending the night there so packed our bags and left. We asked him to refund our money and he said "No". We were in the room a total of about 25 mins (including yelling time). my Fiancee and I are very easygoing people so for us to get this upset it takes a lot! So basically, go at the risk of having a mouse in your room as it is "normal for the countryside" and also risk getting yelled at.
