We stayed for 4 nights, a mixed squadron group of Air Cadets on a battlefield tour. Did not get the video on arrival but the rules were explained to us, this is standard in French hostels. The food was excellent, there was wine for the staff with evening meals. Breakfasts were as expected & the packed lunches were tasty &... More

We were fortunate to stay here with our group of 160 students. The accommodation is excellent as far as hostels go. The room I shared with a colleague was very well appointed with windows opening onto an incredible sea view. The ensuite was a good size with a lovely shower. The breakfast was adequate and the dinners were very good... More

I was concerned about the negative reviews but the place is ideal for school visits - especially for younger students. The sea-view rooms are lovely with good showers. Did not have any time to watch TV or use the jacuzzi! It is right on the beach (a volley ball net is further up on the beach near the shops.) but... More

Don't be fooled by the pictures on the Internet, it really is terrible. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by an awful video, which made the rules seem like prison. To our surprise we found there is no acsess to the wifi for students and the swimming pool costs an extra fee so you couldn't use it. The evening... More

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

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.

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 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
