We stayed at this hotel for two nights in July 2015. We didn't quite know what to expect from either the hotel or Fouras and in both cases were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is so much nicer inside than it looks from the street. We had a lovely room, adequately sized for two people, decorated very nicely, and the bathroom... More

This is an excellent hotel which arranged private lock up parking. A beautiful courtyard with shady trees and a beautifully kept indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room. We stayed here one night before taking the ferry, next morning, to III d'Aix. Highly recommended.

This hotel is very pleasant, our room was compact but clean, comfortable and represented value for money. It is very close to the sea front and the centre of the town. It has covered car parking (at extra cost) and free wifi. The receptionist was very helpful and thankfully spoke very good English. We used this hotel as a stopover... More

I think the nicest part of our stay was sitting in the courtyard reading and having a few drinks. The room was quite nice (no A/C though). The gentleman that greeted us and got us situated was one of the hardest working people I've ever witnessed. The hotel location is perfect for strolling along the beach, or investigating the surrounding... More

We stayed here for one night only on a motorbiking trip to France. As has been said before, it is a really lovely boutique style hotel with very pleasant staff and we had a really nice big room (22). The bathroom was particularly well equipped with lovely toiletries and a great shower. There is a small courtyard which the rooms... More

A well-appointed establishment offering bed and breakfast. Went for a 'privilege' room. Evidently refurbished in modern taste... easily one of the nicest shower rooms we've found in French hotels. Also provided tea/coffee making. Décor excellent. Room on the Garden side i.e. overlooking courtyard. Good and accessible walking to beaches, shops and restaurants. Paddled in the morning on a clean beach... More

We stayed here for 7 nights in July, the rooms were lovely and the breakfast excellent. The staff speak a little English, and made us very welcome. The car parking facilities were well worth paying for, although the large free car park a short walk away would have been OK but not secure if you wanted to leave things in... More

The hotel is very pretty with a lovely courtyard and the lady on Reception (unsure whether the owner or not) was hugely efficient. Our room did smell slightly stale but had a nice view onto the courtyard. The 3 children shared a large room and were very comfortable. The bathrooms were a good size, clean and modern. Fouras is a... More

We spent 2 nights here in early May. Our room was smart, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. There was secure parking for the car in a garage opposite the hotel. The reception staff were most helpful.

We wanted to stay in Fouras for 2 nights, in June 2014, and chose this hotel. They demanded a minimum stay of 3 nights. We changed our plans, (in November 2013) to stay for 3 nights and booked the hotel. At the end of March 2014 we received an an E-mail cancelling our booking because of "a Problem". We would... More

Hello sir, We do have closed our sells the 21-22 and 23 nights in June. We verified promptly when we saw your message that no mistakes were made on the website "booking.com" and after review we effectively haven't put any rooms available at those dates. So it shouldn't be possible to book in any way the 21 to 23 June... More
