Unfortunately 2-star hotels in France do not appear ever to provide kettles etc in the rooms. I was aware of this from the information provided by Booking.com, so had packed a travel kettle and teabags for that essential morning cuppa!
Friendly efficient welcome, immediate offer to book us in for dinner at the restaurant downstairs and helpful suggestions about nearby places to visit. I had already had email contact from the hotel, concerned that my online request about room choices would be difficult for them to meet on the dates of our stay. In the event we were allocated a room at the front, which was smaller than expected but perfectly adequate, and an enormous family room at the back with Juliet balcony. The furnishings and décor were a little dated and quirky but the beds were comfortable, everything was very clean and the showers worked well. There is a lift up to the bedrooms. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as there is such an excellent boulangerie/patisserie next door for fresh pastries and picnic goodies - and we also walked along to the vast town-centre market on the Saturday morning, with its excellent selection of local produce. The hotel is easy to find, with plenty of free parking space opposite. We ate at the independent restaurant downstairs on both evenings, as we were so impressed by the food quality, value and ambiance on our first visit. We liked the unpretentious town of Apt, found it a brilliant base to explore the stunning Luberon area and a very convenient stopping off point en route from Aix to the Gorge du Verdon. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, such a welcome change from the impersonal budget chain hotels we used on the rest of our trip. We would return without hesitation and recommend this hotel to others.
