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

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Fouras, only a very short walk to the beautiful Atlantic coast. Our spotlessly clean, first floor room overlooked a beautiful courtyard, bathed in sunshine. Our hosts were welcoming and showed us where to park our car in a locked garage opposite. The town itself has a main shopping area which includes a fresh-food covered... More

This hotel does not disappoint. All the staff were extremely friendly and the owners seem generally enthusiastic and caring about their guests. The room I stayed in was extremely clean and well appointed. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Fouras.

From the cheery reception to the well-appointed room and the excellent breakfast this hotel is faultless within its category. Well located - being a short distance from shops, restaurants and the beach front, possibly the star attraction is the beautiful internal courtyard.

Beautiful and very luxury modern, I cannot believe this is the 2 star hotel, it was definitely best 2 star hotel I have ever been! There is amazing courtyard where you can have outdoor breakfast, nice and luxury renovated rooms and very kind staff. Free parking 100 meters far from the hotel near the beach. Absolutely recommend.

Very clean, modern facilities. Our room looked over a beautiful shady courtyard. The hotel is one short street away from a fine beach next to the Vauban fortress. As it is in the centre of the town, the locked garage across the road is reassuring. We did not need the car to explore, everything is in walking distance. 50 metres... More

Upon travelling from the ferry at Roscoff to Carcassonne with my two dogs I decided to divert to the coast intending to stay overnight in La Rochelle. Thankfully I had a SatNav disaster in attempting to find an hotel and decided to drive further down the coast. I chose Grands Hotels des Bains from my SatNav and continued tentatively hoping... More

This hotel appears unprepossessing from the outside, but the interior is tastefully furnished, the beds are comfortable and it is very clean. The breakfast is adequate but the dining room sports toile de joie furnishings, a nice touch. The owners are very charming and welcoming. They do speak English should wish them to do so, but hey, try a little... More

After a shocking stay at Bordeaux we were looking for a place that was clean and comfortable. We got so much more! The town of Fouras is amazing with so much to do. We parked the car outside Hotel Des Bains and did not get in again until we left. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable.... More
