Although I stayed here in the off season with only two other residents, I had one of the best stays I've ever had in a hostel. I feel bad even calling it a hostel. A brilliant kitchen and outdoors area, great beds, showers and common areas. I had the most relaxing four nights at Le Papillon, made all the more... More

I stayed at Le Papillon for 2 nights in July. Really nice and clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a huge car park out the front and a nice garden to enjoy the nice weather. A few annoying things, you have to pay for the showers (50p) also it is about a 20/25 minute from... More
