"Excellent location - parking could be a problem, fortunately, we were lucky at all times."
While it enjoys a very central location, it may be necessary to pay for parking at most times. It is close to a very fine beach, and also the port, if one wanted to take a boat trip or two. In addition, there are many fine restaurants within a few minutes of the hotel. Breakfast is just average for French hotels, and the beds could not be described as very comfortable, and may not suit some people (backs!). The corridor layout could prove to be a hazard in the case of a fire. Overall, the management was excellent, and I would recommend this hotel to a friend, and would be prepared to stay there again if planning to return to Lavandou.

Quiet comfortable room (but, as normal for France, "petit"). No aircon but side facing room with shutters open at night in July was OK with the prevailing breeze. Minimalist breakfast, but fresh and in a pleasant outside environment (Why not serve a standard-sized yogurt rather than split it into two in small glasses - a couple of cents difference won't break the bank. And have plates available, not subject to request: Note, these are not major complaints, just niggles, and the staff response is very friendly).
Other reviews mentioned the steep access with trepidation. It is, but not a reason to avoid the place unless infirm.

"Beautiful Hotel - ideally situated near old town"
We found the Forum Casino car park easily (it's signposted) and the lift from the car park opened directly onto the square in front of the hotel. Just 50m across the square and up ten shallow steps we were in the hotel reception. The reception staff gave us a warm welcome and we were totally delighted with our large, elegant room and enormous terrace overlooking the town and the sea beyond. Everything was even better than we had dared to hope. Breakfast was served in the room on an elegant trolley with white linen tablecloth, bread, croissants, Danish pastries, butter,jams, juice, cheese, fresh fruit and yoghurt. We were there for Xmas Eve and Christmas Day and strolling round the old town on Christmas Eve was a real treat! The alleyways were festooned with Christmas lights, there was a wonderful Christmas market serving traditional Christmas fare and warming mulled wine and it seemed as if every family was out soaking up the atmosphere. We had a lovely meal in the hotel restaurant on Christmas night. The food was delicious and we thought that the Christmas menu including a glass of champagne each and a bottle of wine between two was very good value at 38€ per head. We had a little flutter at the roulette tables which all added to our enjoyment of a lovely Christmas break. Can't recommend it highly enough - we will definitely go back!
