Secure hotel at the back of beyond

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Car park. Breakfast limited but wholesome.
Cons: Provide clients with food?
Location: Bellegarde is in no man's land among Arles Nimes and Avignon. You have to go to one of these for anything. The hotel has a small pool.
After 300 miles, and two hours in traffic jams getting through Lyon, the satnav took us straight to Hotel Le President. Someone had to come out to let us in, and gave us codes for the outer gate and hotel door. Advised us to book table by 6pm if eating in, as we said we probably would. However half an hour later at 5pm someone knocked on our room door to tell us that the dining room was closed. We didn't want to get back in the car but needs must, so off we went. The only other restaurant in Bellegarde was fully booked and they told us to try Arles or St Gilles, each about 8miles away. We made for St Gilles but could find nowhere, so we headed for Arles, where we did see a couple of cafe bars each choc-a-bloc with no parking space available. By this time our fuel was running low so when we struck a main road we followed a sign for a filling station where we got fuel and something to eat. Back at the hotel we found another resident had managed to locate a pizza takeaway so maybe we should have searched further in Bellegarde and saved 30 miles. The hotel was otherwise basically acceptable. Our room was very small and 'furnished' with a metal-framed fabric shelf system from Ikea, and a matching table and chair. The en-suite was basic but functional, the aircon worked and the bed was very comfortable. However I could never recommend a hotel that left its weary clients without sustenance as Le President did. We had booked for 2 nights, so next day we had dinner in Avignon!

I understand your bitterness, and I'm really sorry for your experience, I fully assume responsibility (the restaurant is closed on Sundays). But what a shame to have waited 3 days, maybe with some explanations we could respond to your request. Thank you for your stay. Gérard MANCHON manager

décevant

Posted Jun 5, 2011
Un confort convenable mais une prestation très décevante : peu de caractère pour cet hôtel en forme de "cube", et surtout des prestations très mauvaises : le petit déjeuner facturé 8 € quel que soit l'age de la personne (un enfant de 7 ans paye le même prix) est en dessous d'un petit déjeuner dans un hôtel de catégorie inférieure : une seule sorte de pain, pas de miel ou crèmes chocolatées, pas de produits laitiers ni de fruits. Un seul jus de fruit. Au bilan, un séjour décevant

Bonjour, je suis le nouveau propriétaire depuis septembre 2011. Effectivement je suis d'accord avec vous, depuis il y a un restaurant, des tarifs différents pour le petit déjeuner des moins de 13 ans et nous avons complété notre petit déjeuner . Merci de votre avis. Gérard MANCHON
