One feature above all distinguishes Saint Paul (otherwise an hotel with much to commend it) : it has no kettles! neither in the room nor available on demand. I was offered a thermos the first night which must have been used exclusively to contain coffee, so the water was foul before I poured it on the Yorkshire Gold.
For the second night I bought my own kettle for €22 at the local super U, and left it behind for the rescue of future Brits. ASK FOR IT!
The hotel lies in the Victorian, semi rural part of town near classic restored bathing huts on the Plage des Dames, which are well worth a visit. It has a mature garden with Spa and heated pool (neither of which were sampled but looked good.) Service was courteous both at reception and breakfast. Breakfast was indeed Brit-leaning with ample bacon among the decent offer (at €12 a person.) The room was simple in line with the three star category and it was fun to find on the wall a photograph of the hotel from Victorian times with our room prominent. More
