Disappointing experience

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Too many stars for services provided. The bed was old and creaking, bed sheet didn't match the bed, being too small. Bathtub looks dirty and small. The food was expensive and tasted weird, served by inexperienced staff, who put the forks and spoons directly on your table. They don't speak English and let you wait on the table too long for serving the food. Bottom of line, they don't deserve the four stars. Perhaps somebody should pay them a visit to revisit the state of the hotel, the way it looks now.

Great Hotel, Service & Food

Posted Mar 29, 2016 on Hotels
I was impressed with the overall service of everyone in the hotel. The food in the lower-level restaurant was of superior quality and contained the best dessert buffet I've ever seen. My only complaint would be that the hotel is far from any nearby restaurants or businesses, and since there's not a single vending machine in the hotel, one must resort to buying the snacks in the hotel room, indulge in a large meal, or drive some distance to the closest restaurant where you can obtain a light meal.

Sleepless Night

Posted Nov 19, 2015 on Hotels
Room had no A/C, due to the fact that management decided to switch on the heat for winter (despite the fact that it was 72F/22C outside). Room was unbearably hot during the evening. Left with the choice of sweating all night or opening the window. If choosing the latter, one is greeted with loud noise from the highway, hungry hungry mosquitoes, and bright lights aimed conveniently into your room. Asked for a fan at front desk - said they had none. Seems like poor decision making on the part of management. Front desk personnel were kind and helpful within their limited powers.

Dear Client, We, the management team and students’ of Vatel, are happy that you have chosen Vatel for your stay. We apologise that your stay didn’t go as planned. The Vatel Hotel is currently equipped with centralized heating, which is controlled due to the general demands of the customers. The decision to turn on the heater, although the 22°c (the unexpected rise of the heat in the middle of winter) needs understanding. Your stay in our hotel was in the middle of November, which is usually a cold and windy weather at this time of year. We hope to see you again and will try our best to make your future stay with us as pleasant as possible. Yours Sincerely,

New Year's Day

Posted Jan 6, 2015 on Hotels
Arrived on 1 January mid day, when hotel restaurant was fully booked for celebration meal. Couldn't find a place to park but managers took care of this for us once we finally reached reception. Pool was closed for cleaning but we only received an email about this after we had checkin in. So we cancelled second night of booking as pool was important for us. Of course we understand pools need cleaning some time, so we were just unlucky.

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

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.
