We stayed here for a weekend that we had booked online. This way we got a little better deal so that may have helped my impression as well. As far as location, it was amazing. Right in the heart of things; you couldn't ask for better. The rooms were smallish but large enough, the bed was large and comfortable and...

I stayed here on a short break to Arcachon and found it to be a grand place to stay. The foyer has two sweeping staircases and very attentive receptionists. Beautiful decor with large installation artworks, fresh flowers, and even fresher croissants available in reception. The room with a sea view was perfect and came with all the little extras (dressing...

A lovely room, nice hotel in superb location, with helpful and friendly staff. We couldn't work the complicated shower though! Breakfast was at extra cost and I would describe it as adequate. We'd stay there again, but there are better hotels in the area.

The rooms are comfortable,ours had separate toilet and bathroom.Windows on 2 sides so nice outlook.Not a boutique hotel but lots of character.Breakfast was an extra,not good choice and poor quality.Lots of places to go out for breakfast. Staff not over friendly....

Stayed here for 3 nights hotel is in great location right by the waterfront - very very basic hotel with no extras like tea/coffee making, mini bar etc . Walls paper thin and can hear everything going on in next room. Our room had a bath only with hand held shower head and no curtain which made for very wet...

A small hotel right on the beach. We stayed in room 32 and had issues: leaky shower in bath with no screen/curtain, leaky air con, concert going on outside our window until midnight (would be great if we didn't have a small child), smallish room. Staff did everything asked of them, including dashing out with daughter's beloved soft toy just...

We stayed as a party of two families (5 people) and organised it all online. Odile was very helpful and, despite being a little concerned at paying 100% deposit prior to arrival, our expectations were well exceeded when we got there. Arriving prior to check in time, the manager gave us towels and access to a change room so we...

Be very careful when booking this hotel as on most booking sites it is non refundable full payment . My husband is disabled and we realised after booking they have no restaurant which made our one night stay impossible. Despite 6 weeks notice of the error the director of the hotel has only agreed to refund half the room cost...
