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

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.
