I spent one night at this hotel while traveling through Provence with a hiking group. It is beautifully decorated and in a great central location, within walking distance to everything in Saint-Remy. My room was small, but had a charming balcony and a great bathroom. This was the best shower I had on my Europe trip - a large shower...

This hotel refers to its "superior" rooms as charming rooms, but the word charming sums up the whole experience one gets when visiting this establishment. My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of October whilst on a driving holiday through Provence and the Cote D'azur. We enjoyed the hotel so much we stayed a further...

This hotel is lovely. Public areas were beautiful, our room was lovely and bathroom was lovely, well-appointed and spacious, and the pool area was great. The breakfast was very nice. The hotel is in an ideal location in the heart of St Remy, and perfect for walking to restaurants and shops. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Having spent 2 nights each summer for the past 3 years I have seen this hotel morph into a beautiful haven to escape to. I have booked 4 rooms for my French Travel Tours and each has been just as comfortable and nicely decorated. The renovated rooms, restaurant and garden areas have an elegant yet welcoming feel. The owner is...

Hotel Gounod is beautiful, with fabulous interior and lovely bedrooms. The pool area is also very pretty. Service was good but quite standard and no major passion from them in terms of wanting to impress. However, when we were there the jacuzzi didn't work, on 2 days the pool wasn't cleaned, and extras such as drinks were very expensive. No...

We loved our stay in this beautiful and relaxing hotel. It is in the centre of town and so convenient for all the restaurants and shops, but as soon as you step inside you are in a haven of tranquility and peace! The garden with its plants and fountains - and comfy spots to sit and relax- the good sized...

This beautiful hotel is quite unique. Right when you walk in I could automatically tell I was going to love this place. The rooms are super nice with air conditioning with either a king bed or two twins. The bathrooms are gorgeous. And each room is different. The food is amazing and they have a restaurant right next to the...

The Hotel Gounod was a surprising find! I booked it as I had a wedding nearby but found it an oasis of calm within St Remy. The pool area but perfect for the location. All the hotel staff were super friendly and our room, although looking onto the main square, was a very good size and well decorated. I look...

My sister and I stayed here for 6 nights and it was delightful. Our room which was on the 3rd floor (no elevator) was large and nice with a beautiful view of the sunset each night but climbing 3 flights of stairs after a day of touring got exhausting and I would request something on a lower floor if I...

The ground floor is unique and charming. The staff is warm and helpful in every way. We walked in without reservations and got one of the last rooms on a Friday afternoon. Only two were left on the 4th floor and we were given a choice. The room was large, the bathroom adequate but it was a hike up. The...
