Hôtel & Spa Vatel, Nimes
No sheets; food stains on the couch, waited two hours for them to move us to a new room as no sheets were available. New suite had no lights in the room. Paid $280 a night with no compensation (they offered to get us drinks....). It's a school so staff is inexperienced. Bad location and hard to find. Stay away

Great Hotel, Service & Food
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
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.

Beautiful accommodations with fantastic restaurant
Slightly hard to find but absolutely stunning location. The renovated chateau has been done impeccably and the food is outstanding at the restaurants. Really sophisticated environment.
