    Nice hotel, well positioned,parking in the hotel is recomended,friendly staff,most comfortable bed i have slept in,10 mins walk from marina/resturant area area

    nothing all good

  • Couple
    8.2

    The room is a bit dark, the TV only has French channels and the decor in general, is a little past its best. That said, the staff were excellent and the hotel was spacious and offered a pleasant lounge with a wonderful log fire for a cold December night.

  • Couple

    I like the location, the view on a beautiful street, the lobby with a fireplace, patio. The hotel is very nice and well-designed.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Reception, and bar staff were very helpfull and friendly. Mary at reception, worked for most of the weekend visit.She was particularly welcoming and gave us usefull information about La Rochelle..

    The shower was dreadfull, no shower curtain, and it felt unsafe crouching in the bath trying to wash using the shower head.The hair dryer was very basic, completely useless for styling hair. It was of a standard I would expect in a public swimming pool.There were no tea or cofee making facilities in the room. We did not expect this in a four star hotel.

  • Older travelers
    3.2

    room decoration, general upkeep, overpriced

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Excellent position for town centre, suite nice and roomy.

    Bar staff only on requested not experienced. Only had restaurant for breakfast and was expensive.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The location was ideal for what we wanted to do and we had friendly staff to help us with directions etc

    could do eith air conditioning in the old part

  • Family with children
    8.8

    very helpful staff, great location right beside market and shops but quiet and peaceful

    Pool very small (but clean and not busy). No air conditioning. No kettle. Room a little small for family of 4

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The staff were helpful and friendly and the ambience in the lounge and pool area was peaceful. The location was good for us and there were some lovely restaurants very near by.

    The room we had overlooked a busy street and so there was a lot of noise throughout the night and early morning. We would have liked a shower in the bathroom and felt that the breakfast was too expensive so did not try it!

  • Couple
    6.2

    Our room was facing over a beautiful old street near the town square. It was lovely to wake up in a lovely light room each morning. The fact that the room had three double doors that opened over the street has to be the highlight of this hotel. Beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious.

    I wouldn't rate this as a four star hotel. It lacked any sort of luxury and although the staff were helpful I felt they lacked enthusiasm. On the whole I think for the standard of room (where we stayed was called a suite) I think it was very overpriced for a small town.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Location

    Very poor bedroom product - - more like an average 2 star than a 4 star and very poor value for money . Superior room is only superior in terms of size - - furnishings are 2 star quality .
