the room was splendid with a big terrace with view on the beach and the ocean.
Great value for money. The restaurant was very good, but I recommend only to take breakfast and dinner eventually separately; we had half board and could not choose the food. Nevertheless the food was excellent !

Room Tip: TRY to make reservation for a room with balcony; they are superb with very good beds and also a breathtaking view of beach and sea

Thank you so much for commenting on your stay with us.
Half-board does induce some limitation, as it reduces the choice of our guests to a specific menu that changes every day. Having said that, we do offer an alternative under the form of our "Terroir" menu which is proposed when the day's menu is not to our half-boarders' liking. And you are right, complete freedom can be achieved by not going for half-board, and deciding to eat in whenever you feel like it. We are very easygoing on that point.

Our stay at Hotel Au Roi Gradlon could not have been nicer. The view of the coastline and lighthouses from the ocean-facing rooms is spectacular. At night, you can hear the surf on the beach just below. The rooms are somewhat small, but are well-equipped, and the view more than makes up for it. The restaurant, which specializes in seafood, is excellent. The staff is extremely pleasant and helpful. We had a very pleasant stay.

Great hotel with views on the beach. Person at the reception could have been more friendly (honestly, what does it cost???) but the hotel, restaurant and breakfast were so enjoyable that I still give a 5 stars. We had dinner there as well and boy was it a great service and great food.

Room Tip: views, on the beach, great restaurant,

We came across this place whilst exploring and I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing, the service fantastic and the views are lovely. Would recommend you book as they were very busy. Menu was varied and we all had different meals and every one of them was lovely.

its a superb location. Hotel itself small, and somewhere closer to motel in status. Its clean and friendly, and continental style breakfast well laid out and plentiful.

Downsides:
Photo in Publicity shot is misleading - which is probably why its a long distance photo... No genuine balconies, apart from the top floor of 3-4 rooms actually get dedicated balconies. (2nd floor have french doors, but balcony rail is right in front of it. first floor is restaurant). Without this, you only get a window view, and not quite the luxury experience.

Wifi is free - but you will struggle to get anything but a really slow connection. (we tested it online to see speed, and its really really low when you compare to what you get at home).

Restaurant - its ok for breakfast (though price is a lot for what you get, but you pay for ease I guess). Definitely don't dine there at night, as its more like an old peoples home (lacks character and charm). More like dining at Faulty Towers but with management that have better manners.

Location: its best selling point is its location to beach. downside is that its the wrong end of town. (so, if you want nothing but beach, its great. If you also want to have a bar, visit the harbour, or have a choice of seaside restaurants and eateries, you are 10 minutes drive away).

Stayed: July 2016
