Stunning courtyard with fantastic staff
This hotel was only a 15 min walk (even for a tired 4yr old) to the center/train station but felt more like a small tucked away hotel you might find on a hillside somewhere. The courtyard/pool is stunning, with a really nice space for eating outside as well. The wind in Nîmes meant it never got too hot, but also meant the water in the pool was very very cold. The train to the beach at Grau du Roi (where the water is a bit warmer) took less than an hour and was only €1 each way. Great boulangerie across the street, plus a Carrefour just around the corner. The friendliness and helpfulness of the reception staff really sets this hotel apart. I travel extensively for work and can only think of one other hotel with staff so helpful, and that was after staying at that hotel for a month, not just the few days I spent at L'Orangerie.
We stayed in two different rooms. The first was more expensive but a bit more shabby. Its shower room really needed updating. The next room we had booked was much more cheerful and fresh, and the bathroom was fine.
One kilometer from historic downtown Nimes called the 'French Rome', set in a ravishing wooded park; the Best Western Hotel l'Orangerie is a haven of freshness and relaxation. A warm welcome, the intimate style, the pool and other amenities guarantee a high quality stay. Dining pleasures run a range of refined dishes, served on the terrace in summer. We have live entertainment and meeting and conference facilities that accommodate up to 120 for your business needs. Around Nimes, you will discover the Camargue, Montpellier, Avignon, Cevennes Mountains and Uzes. We are just one kilometer from downtown, Roman monuments, Carre D'Art, Vieux Nimes and Jardin De La Fontaine. Enjoy your stay.
