    Make sure that you programme your SatNav from nearby POI, GOLF not from the address on Booking.com's website. There are lots of road works and diversions in the vicinity of Valbonne and Opieo. The hotel food and wine is extremely expensive and the breakfast at 20 euros is not value for money. A tiny glass of wine will cost you 10 euros and a Small beer 4.5 euros, it is cheaper in Iceland!

    Service in restaurant in evening excellent. Reception staff excellent. Breakfast staff short staffed and one was particularly offhand. Eggs were under cooked, service was slow. Golf course was beautiful and the wild flowers in April were wonderful.

    We requested an early check-in but our room hadn't been cleaned. When we were given access we had to wait for several hours before we had any towels - they had run out! The wine at lunchtime was half the price of wine at dinner which seemed strange. Also take care with address it was wrong on booking.com and it took us quite a while to find. You need the postcode and Opie (I think).

    The restaurant in the evening was excellent and the room itself was lovely.

    Noisy early morning because of greenkeepers equipment running, golfer's talks, deliveries cars when window opened. Breakfast buffet without fresh juices, and horrendous price. Bad wifi connection and Operator's network only edge. Some rooms not adapted for handicapped because stairs.

    Private parking, nice surroundings with golf course. Rooms very comfortable and large.

    Breakfast cost was a monumental rip-off. Most of the buffet items ran out, service was unfriendly and scrambled eggs were not much more than slop. Restaurant manager would be better employed elsewhere.

    Rooms were comfortable and well appointed, location good, especially if you are a golfer. Restaurant was very expensive but creative and good quality. Local village is only a short drive and well worth a visit, especially for eating out.

    The only downside was the breakfast which was basic and highly overpriced. A more satisfying choice of breakfasts would have been appreciated. Also the address stated is confusing and sent us two miles in the wrong direction. Make sure you have the correct current address before relying on Satnav

    Proximity to a very nice golf course. Outstanding bedroom with en suite. The staff were very helpful at every turn

    Excellent hotel - didn't play golf but stayed for a relaxing couple of days with my girlfriend. The staff were exceptionally friendly from the moment we arrived - no problems with an upgrade to a junior suite (big spacious room), with the receptionist personally showing us there. The pool is lovely (don't think the photos do it justice) and is set beautifully overlooking the 18th hole. Restaurant is excellent (we had both lunch and ate on a night with the gastronomic menu). Tennis court was free on site with rackets and balls included. Excellent for a get away and even better if staying for the golf course I imagine. highly recommended.

She went out of her way to be have personal reccommendations that turned out to be excellent in terms of price and quality. It was like a friend had reccommend them. other than that the place is nice, beautiful surroundings, golf course is good and if you don't mind being away from the hussle and bustle you should have a good time here
