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

Another school trip returnee here. As per a reviewer below, I really do think the negative reviews were written by disgruntled teens who had been ticked off for something. I would really recommend this place for school trips. It's very well set up, clean, spacious and comfortable. The nearby beach is absolutely wonderful and the food is plentiful and swift... More

Just returned from a week at Bonsejour La Plage. Staff were great, accommodation clean and tidy, fantastic location. I would thoroughly recommend this to other school parties. Breakfast and dinner were good and lunches were fine. Ok, it's not 5 star but the previous reviews appear very harsh and certainly a odds with our experience. The proximity to the beach... More
