Whilst very close to the beach I feel this hotel is trading off it's over hyped trip advisor rating. It is a pleasant hotel. Clean and comfortable but in my opinion over priced. The owners were pleasant but the overall experience was dull. Good car parking facilities that I have no doubt would be worth their weight in gold in...

This is a classic old style French seaside hotel right on the seafront. Added advantage of secure off road parking. It is a 2 star hotel and, although it has been refurbished, the bathrooms, while adequate, could do with a bit of updating. Even so, room was comfortable and breakfast was cheap and excellent. Friendly hosts. And the fastest internet...

Charming appearance and character decor with tip top comfort and cleanliness. Rooms great size for 2star hotel with spacious bedroom, en-suite bathroom and separate en-suit toilet, fitted wardrobes, comfortable...

We stayed for four nights over the august bank holiday. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. The inclusive breakfasts were generous and served till midday which was a great surprise. We ate in the hotel canteen everyday. The menu is simple; salads, sandwiches, crêpes and waffles but they are prepared with great care and were delicious. The location was...

We stayed here 2 years ago the week when the current owners took over. Since then they have updated the hotel really well. We probably had the best room, just above the bar with a great sea view. The location is brilliant - a few yards from the beach and close to all the restaurants, shops and bars. Petit dejeuner...

We wanted to stay in this hotel based on good reviews and booked the last available room 1 day ahead of our stay. However, the next day we found out that a family member has suddenly passed away and we had to return home immediately. We contacted the hotel and explained the situation both in English and French, but the...

We stopped for two nights at this small hotel on our way to the Algarve. It is situated on the sea front opposite the surf club and has private secure parking. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was a pleasure staying there. We booked on the internet in advance through a booking agency and paid more than...

There is a car park next to the hotel but you need to get the key off the person at reception to use it. Staff were very friendly. The rooms were a bit more basic than I imagined but clean enough. Breakfast is a few euros extra and consisted of fruit, croissant and tea/coffee. Overall, I would go back again...

This hotel is the essence of a family-run hotel in SW France. The proprietors are very friendly, and so helpful with questions, recommendations, requests, etc. For example - the cups in the room are only plastic (and that lovely flimsy plastic that French hotels seem to love), but we happened to have a bottle of wine with us from our...

We stayed at the hotel for one night. The location is fantastic - on the beach front road very close to all the restaurants and shops. It's a great location for surfers - we were able to check the waves by just walking across the road! The carpark is free with a locked gate. The rooms are really cheap for...
