Beware of distance from Avignon centerPosted Jan 3, 2012
Pros: The staff was very pleasant.
Cons: The screen between the bathroom and bedroom was novel but you cannot block out the light from the bathroom if someone is sleeping in the bedroom.
Location: Might be nice for a business stay, but not for a holiday stay if you plan to walk to Avignon to see the sites.
The hotel and staff were very nice. The location was about 2+ miles further from Avignon center than what we had read on Expedia. We had expected it to be walking distance....not a marathon hike. It screwed up our visit because it took us 45 minutes to walk to the town and we had a short visit planned. We had looked specifically for something close to Avignon and near Le Pont D'Avignon and Palais du Papes....this was NOT close for walking. Fortunately we were good walkers and did what was needed in order to see Avignon. Regards, K

Very friendly relexingPosted Sep 24, 2011
The management were helpful and friendly with good english, the food was very good, although we did not have the expensive breakfast. It was a good half hour walk into Avignon, but there was a bus if you needed it. The garden and the pool were very clean with comfy sun loungers and shade. We would recommend this hotel, for car users and walkers. We used this hotel enroute to the TGV station, with good taxi service.

Comfortable, welcoming and surprisingly well located for AvignonPosted Sep 10, 2011
This hotel was quite modern, nicely laid out, with free WiFi and internet access in the lobby. The rooms are quite small, but were clean and everything worked, which was a nice surprise. The desk staff were really friendly and helpful, the hotel is very quiet, yet only 1/2-mile from the ring-road and the drive to Avignon took only 10-15 mins. Really good value and would definitely stay there again if visiting Avignon.

Lovely gardenPosted Jul 11, 2011
Excellent stopover hotel near to TGV station. Bus into town was handy. Lovely garden and pool and good buffet breakfast.

Best Western Le Lavarin - restful, helpful staffPosted May 27, 2011 on Hotels.com
This is a nicely maintained, friendly hotel with helpful staff and comfortable rooms. The lawn and pool were lovely, and the hotel was quiet so we got a great night's sleep. The lady who checked us in was very friendly and spoke fluent English. She gave us good, detailed driving directions to the old city of Avignon and pointers on where to park. We picked this hotel because of it's proximity to the train station - the station is an easy, 10 minute drive away. We were departing at 7:15 the next morning for Paris and had to return a rental car before departure. All went off without a hitch. While the location was great for that purpose, I'll also say that there isn't anything around the hotel, like shops or restaurants, or . . .anything. Unless you're willing to drive around there isn't anywhere to eat other than the hotel. The hotel food was okay, but there wasn't much variety. There's no vending or little shop so if you decide to stay here stock up first if you like a late snack. The hotel provided free bottled water for the room. One other bit of info - we found it kind of confusing finding the place for the first time. There's a big sign on the side of a building on a roundabout that almost makes it look as if that might be the hotel - it isn't. Keep driving for a minute or so in the direction of the arrow and the hotel is on the left in a lovely garden-like setting.

Would stay again.Posted Oct 6, 2010
The owner was most helpful and friendly. The pool was very pleasant to sit beside and the outdoor seating area a perfect place to have dinner. The dinner was very tasty and the server charming and attentive. Breakfast was also a treat, when I stayed it was 13 euros and there was a lot of choice. The room was big, by European standards and very clean and quiet. They could use some updating, but I understand that will happen next year. I would definitely stay here again. It's a short bus ride into the city, but service is frequent and the price is right. Buses do not run after 7:00 p.m. but there is a very reasonable taxi service - it just needs to be ordered ahead of time. A very happy stay.

The hotel staff were extremely professional and helpful, especially the one who checked us in. He was particularly helpful in giving us directions to the city centre and in recommending various F&B outlets. The 2nd floor room was great with access to a balcony. Only complain was the stale cigarette smell, even though it is a non-smoking room. The hotel has a restaurant in a nice garden where we had an excellent dinner. It is located on the outskirts of the city and there was ample parking space available when we stayed there.
