Of course, the Vauban Hotel offers accommodation, and good value for money, too. But the reason why we keep returning is the view : the hotel is built on the quiet side of the quay (the Quai Toudouze bustles with activity until the wee hours) and quayside rooms offer a view of the harbour, marina, ancient fortifications by Vauban and Rocamadour chapel.
The owners, Noel and Marie Claude, are devoted to their guests and will go out of their way to please them. No restaurant (but plenty of nice seafood places nearby) but a bar where breakfast can be had, and which is the meeting-place of famous long-distance sailors. The walls are decorated with souvenirs of their adventures.
