We've just returned from Bonsejour with a group of Year 7s and had a fantastic stay. The staff were very friendly and although the presentation of the rules to the kids may have seemed a bit severe, they were all reasonable and made our lives much easier! Yes the kids don't have access to the wifi however the hotel is... More

My school stayed here in March 2015 and I have to say it is the worst place I have ever stayed. After around 11 hours on the coach and ferry, we all wished to just sit down and relax. But no, the so called 'entertainment manager' met us at the door and read 50 rules about the 'hotel', following each... More

I'm not the best at reviews so i'll lay this out bluntly. Pros: -The beach was nearby. Cons: -The Bedsheets stank. -The breakfast was cheap. -The staff was biased to the teaching staff (Eg: Allowed them wifi and better food) -Bunk beds seemed unsafe and creaked extremely loudly. -The fire alarms went of at 7.30am for the first couple of...

1) Windows didn't open and the smell of sweaty teens filled the air. 2) The bunk beds weren't fully stable and squeaked all through the night. 3) The children's meals were disgusting while teachers had much nicer meals. 4) The dude behind the bar make the children soil themself. 5) The fire alarms went off twice out of our four...

Bon Séjour indeed - we had a great stay! With 68 students, 8 teachers and 2 coach drivers, we were all fully provided for with clean rooms, convenient ensuite bathrooms and a great place to rest our heads after long days out. We found this place by accident, after our previous Chateau was fully booked for the dates we wanted... More

This hotel is most definitely aimed at the school group market and as a result it does an excellent job. When I read the poor reviews on here they certainly didn't match up to the reality of having been there three times and suspect the reviews come from kids who have been told off for a lack of respect. The... More

My teenage son recently stayed here with his friends on a school trip. It says something if even teenage boys thought the room was not cleaned. There was broken glass in the carpet. One of the beds had pieces of breakfast cereal between the sheets. Perhaps the staff thought boys would not notice the room needed a good clean. They... More

The shower repeatedly fell on me and the step posed as a problem every time it was used. The stains on the bed were unnerving as was the structure of the bunkbeds (we found loose planks under the bed). Breakfast was poor each day, cheap inedible cereal etc. dinner was just as bad, packaged desserts and hair in the food.... More

We're a German family and spent a week at Bonsejour in August and were absolutely delighted. The rooms are clean and functional, flat screen TV (French stations only), hair dryer and plenty of shelves in the bath room. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. Only one of us speaks some French, but we got along easily. BonSejour provided... More
