Wonderful Hotel experience, Nimes not so great....

5 out of 5
by from Australia
Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: The most comfortable bed and pillows in four weeks of travelling.
Cons: We had to ask for an extra towel a few times as we had not been given the correct number for our family. They need pool towels as well.
Location: Nimes did not have much to offer as a tourist visiting. No restaurants open in town -sat night! Surrounding sights - approx 1 hours drive away- good.
The Hotel was very welcoming, even when we asked to change rooms because we had been allocated a smoking room, this was not a problem for them. We had a wonderful buffet dinner at the hotel and enjoyed the pool and spa. When we booked in for a beauty treatment this was very professionally done. Great range of treatments for those who have been on the road a while.

Staff were very attentive and professional. I am a swimmer, so I appreciated the pool each day. However, it does not officially open until 9 a.m. I like to work out at 7 or 8 a.m. Would like to have had the opportunity to o my own routine then. Instead i had to join classes with the coach and others. The room was wonderful, clean and many extras with coffee and chocolates.

A comfortable place to stay in Nimes

5 out of 5
by from Houston, Texas, US
Posted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: The size of this room and the fact that it had AC!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Nearby (with a short cab ride) are the Ampitheatre, The Jardins de la Fountain, and the Maison Carrée.
Well, while this hotel is not located in the heart of City Center, it was a 'GREAT' place to stay. After being in a small apartment in Paris during the summer heatwave of 2013, the room we had here was a palace. The size was comparable to what we are use to in the US. Likewise, the bathroom was more than adequate. Other amenities included a pool and gym. Also, the morning breakfast buffet was filling and had many different meal options for different nationalities. The staff were friendly and are multilingual. If you don't need to be located in the middle then I would highly recommend this hotel. Cheers!

Great hotel, but far from city center

This was a great hotel with a wonderful, helpful, friendly staff. The decor was nice and everything was clean, and a much more comfortable size than most European hotels. However, it was very far from the city center, and we were lucky enough to have rented a car. Without this, it would have been a major problem, as the outskirts of Nimes leave something to be desired...Other than that, I would recommend the hotel--bearing in mind the transportation issues.

Pleasantly surprised

Posted Apr 27, 2005
Upon approach of the hotel, we weren't quite sure about the "four star" rating; however, once we walked into the lobby, we were pleasantly surprised. The interior was updated, including the bathroom. The room was average. Breakfast was provided in the cost of the room. Wireless internet access was available in the room as well!

Personnel très accuellant . Le spa et la piscine, salle de fitness ont un accès direct, les repas sont très bien au rez de chaussée en forme de buffet avec un grand choix de plats. Pour les gastronomiques en hiver le restaurant au 6° étage est ouvert du mercredi soir au dimanche midi. Parking gratuit. Facile a trouver en voiture, (près d'un grand axe routier). La vue de la chambre est belle (situé sur une cote)
