We stayed here for three nights as part of an extensive motorcycle tour around France in September. One of the main reasons for picking the Matisse was the security of having a safe garage to keep the motorcycle in, the nominal charge was well worth the peace of mind. The reception is bright and airy and the staff pleasant and... More

This is a delightful small hotel. Only about 25 rooms but very well situated in the centre of town, a lovely pool area with an unheated pool (OK in hot weather). We had room 209 which was one of two premier rooms. It was on a corner with views over the town and sea. Overall an excellent stay and if... More

We had been elsewhere before arriving in sainte maxime and so on arrival at matisse it was very disappointing. Hotel receptionist was unfriendly and although the guests in front of us were shown straight to their room, we were told ours wasn't ready. We were early as it was half 12 but there was no attempt to be accommodating or... More

The perfect little hotel in the perfect town. Loved every minute of it. Would come back again absolutely. Will recommend it gladly. Had no foreknowledge of this hotel, the brand or even Sainte Maxime. Took a chance and was profoundly happy to have found it.

“rooms 109 and 209 are a premium but worth the extra”

“This may sound like a criticism ... but it really is not. The shower was the smallest cutest shower I have ever seen. My wife and I laughed every time we took a shower. It is hard to explain but - it is almost worth staying at this hotel just for this remarkable shower. I would recommend that if you are quite large ... say over 250 pounds ... you might want to ask the hotel if all their showers are the same. If so ... you might want to find a hotel with bigger showers. Otherwise ... bon voyage.”
