    French Hostess/manager super unfriendly. No hospitality in her business. As if they don't want us there. Not rich enough for them. Shame on them. St Tropez,no thank you!!!

    The nice romantic alleys with bars and restaurants.

    Property looked very 'tired' overall. Unsuccessful attempt at partial modernisation of very old building. Modern grey paintwork and new flooring in the bedrooms but in the bathroom, fittings, wall and floor tiling were old and plumbing not good. Corridor carpets old, stained and worn. Outside needs painting too. I expected the bathroom to be fully updated in a 3 star hotel.

    Liked the situation of hotel. Bedroom was a good size. Very nice, clean, crisp white bed linen and white towels. Large sized bed was very comfortable.

    We arrived at 11:55 am and entire hotel was locked with no one there. We had to walk around for 3 hours until someone arrived. A notice was on the door but I would expect a hotel to be open during the day time or a notice to be emailed posted to me when I made the reservation

    Room was very nice and clean and updated. Good location. Woman at desk in evening was very helpful and solved a heating issue

    The parking was a bit of an adventure. The suggested public one was full but if you're patient then it is possible to park on the street for free. But make sure that it's not metered.

    It was nice to stay in a traditional hotel with helpful staff and good restaurants close by.

    No voile on window in room directly overlooked so curtains had to be closed for privacy. Dangerous shower - raised base had to stand onto slippy tiles to step down. Poor security hotel restaurant across street so unmanned door perminantly open for staff directly opposite stairs to rooms. Decor generally tired. Poor advice re parking at check in resulted in a 98 euro ticket in port car park. Beware!

    Air conditioning smelt awful (like a 20 year old much-used school recorder) & whole room smelt damp even when air con was off - probably just needed to clean the filter. Mattress poor. shower in bath tub but no hook to fix shower head to wall - would take 2 minutes and cost little to fit. Screen for shower did not reach the bath (about an inch gap at the bottom) and only noticed when had created a small lake around the loo - just needed to be re-hung.

    Great view from the restaurant & location good - staff really helpful and friendly. Downside - had to park quite far away for a free spot (15 mins away - didn't bother us but might be a problem for some guests)

    The night porter was the rudest man man I have ever had to deal with at a hotel. I arrived back at midnight wth the door locked and no one on reception. Eventually this man appeared with a t shirt with Le First on it ranting in French at me through the door. I don't speak French, and he didn't understand one word of English which is very poor when you work in the hospitality business! He said I should put the code in the keypad. I said I was not given or needed a code to gain entry., and my femail colleague would arrive back later and had not been given a code either. Eventually he opened the door , still ranting!, and I waited for my Freind to arrive so I could let her in, as she would have been terrified if she had pressed the intercom and the maniac had been woken from his slumber! Also the first room I was given was dingy and in need of overhaul, and bore no resemblence to the photos on your website. The bed hard, aircon almost non existent on the hottest night of the year, and the bath plug didn't fit, so I tried to bathe with my heel pushed into the plug hole to stop the water escaping! Needless to say , I didn't sleep a wink. They changed my room the second night that was fine.

    Staff on reception that spoke English where good and obliging

    We have stayed in this hotel three or four times. The rooms vary. As to decoration, space and facilities . Although we chose because of the location, this year the room was in urgent need of updating and rather cramped, in view of the fact I request for a twin bedded room and as we are two friends we prefer to not have them together as a large double.

    it was right next to a cathedral and the bells went early morning all day long it was rediculas. The shower was a bath shower and had been broken for years the sockets were hanging off the walls when we pulled out plugs out our phones the whole socket was coming out the wall. Never ate there but very very expensive. Only air con in one room the other was like an oven but never slept anyway with the bells going off every half an hour unreal. Too noisy in small room to leave window open for the noise off the bells. Also got the bus to this place from St Raphael they let us off as soon as we hit the beach five miles away we had to walk to the town no footpaths with cases it took us hours there was no other transport. Overpriced by far in my opinion .

    location was excellent, right next to the town, night markets every night, and the boat to other parts of the St Topez and other stops right outside on the jetty. Lovely place lots to see and do.
