Good hotel but with a few problemsPosted Aug 4, 2013
Pros: Pool and bed comfortable.
Cons: Lack of hot water
Location: very scenic
Pool lovely but what looks like a lovely old building is actually a modern reproduction. The main problem we had was that there was no hot water in the room and no one to ask in the evening. The only room information was in Russian and, although we were promised an English or French version, this was never delivered. Restaurant expensive.

great locationPosted Apr 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Pleasant staff. Restaurant is good, if pricey. Watch your head on the low beams in hotel, bathroom, shower, toilet etc ... but what do you expect, it's an old building!

Great Location A+Posted Sep 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Loved the location! Food seemed very expensive in restaurant. My $40 Veal Chop was presented beautifully but was undercooked. Cabinet in our room held a mini-bar that did not work, combined with a flat-screen but you couldn't see it because you had to hang your clothes in front of it. Cluttered environment. Plan on bringing in your own luggage. Hotel has seen better days! F & S Corona del Mar, CA.

A beautiful spot.Posted Jun 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
We loved the location up in the hills, and the quaintness of the hotel. Our room was amazing. But there was a slight smell of damp in the bathroom area, and the air conditioning was very poor, virtually non existent. We would have been extremely uncomfortable had it been any hotter. The food was overpriced, but there is a lovely cafe just up the road which we used for breakfast, and other light meals. Our worst complaint was due to a wedding reception where disco music continued until 4am!!!.

Hotel La Vignette HautePosted Sep 15, 2011 on Hotels.com
We had just one night here on our way to Nice Airport for a flight home. The hotel is charming and almost unique, being full of interesting things. I was very impressed by the gardens and their maintenance. We were initially disappointed to find we could not get a seat in the restaurant that night, and had to drive to find another restaurant, but we did arrive quite late in the day, having travelled from Orpierre. Perhaps advance notice of the need to book would be useful for guests. Auribeau-sur-Siagne is a charming town to walk around and admire the views. Our bedroom was lovely: only niggles were that the shower door was ineffective in containing water from the shower, and the hairdrier was not working, nor was the light in the concave miorror. Overall, very good hotel for a visit.

Overpriced with non-working AC - AVOID!Posted Aug 9, 2011 on Hotels.com
A 4- star hotel should have AC. I bet our room had one, there was a dial on the wall, and you could hera a fan. The problem is that it did not cool the room down at all, and we hardly slept at all. Also the restaurant should be avoided, we got cheap food at unsanely high prices. Avoid this place, there are so many other nice hotels in the region.

Too small...Posted Jun 14, 2011 on Hotels.com
This is a samll hotel and unfortunately this means that there is not enough staff to manage the hotel. There is no staff by the pool, there is no hotel bar and you need to go to the reception for drinks. The food at the hotel restaurant, is very good but massively over priced. There are no restaurants nearby and the hotel takes advantage of this by over charging. Great rooms with great views and good staff but I left feeling I had stayed in a closed down hotel.

Fantastic! We stayed in a beautiful castle with the most spectacular view! It was the best day of our vacation. The only thing that can use a little improvement is the menu to possibly add more selection.

Unique experience and best night's sleep in yearsPosted Sep 22, 2010
Our stay at the Chateau-Hotel La Vignette Haute was good. It is beautifully situated on top of a hill overlooking classic French countryside. The hotel itself is well decorated and does its job of feeling like a real castle. The service is hit or miss. We had one front desk lady that was very helpful and another that was not. The restaurant is very expensive. For the evening, there weren't a lot of restaurant options in the nearby towns, but we made do. We were willing to sacrifice our choice of restaurants for the opportunity to stay in such a quiet and secluded locale. We only had breakfast there, and it was good. It is hard to screw up yogurt, juice and breads though. The room was fantastic. I had my best night's sleep in years in that king sized bed. We had room #8 and were able to close the blinds and sleep in long after we should have. The place is all by itself on the hill and it is extremely quiet. I felt like we got a fantastic deal through Expedia as well, so the fact that we were experiencing the hotel at a very discounted price probably colored my perception. Overall, it was a good stay and a good and unique experience compared to all of the other, downtown-type hotels we stayed at on our vacation.

Pleasantly surprisedPosted Aug 13, 2010
The hotel setting is excellent, the views from the hotel verandas are idillic. Ideal for a nice and quite vacation. Rooms are very big and very comfortable. My only comment is that the rooms are a little dark because of the medieval chateaux-like decor. However, the decor adds to the charm of the hotel. We had dinner the night we stayed at the hotel and it was excellent. One of our best meals while traveling in France.
