We stayed at the Hotel Saint James in November 2013 before it was renovated to its current wonderful decor. It was so beautiful, cozy and the service was exceptional. Although it was cold and drizzling outside, the fireplace in the living room was just the spot for a wonderful romantic getaway. We absolutely reccomend staying here to enjoy the seaside... More

We had an enjoyable 3 night stay in this charming hotel. The cosy reception/bar/breakfast area is welcoming and perfect for both a tasty continental breakfast and an evening glass of red by the log fire. Our room was spacious and comfortable (superior double) with a kingsize bed and large walk-in shower, all spotlessly clean. Christian (the proprietor) was warm, friendly... More

We stayed at the Hotel St James for a short break with friends and were completely charmed by its typical French decor, the friendliness of the propretor and its excellent location. Our room was large and well furnished and despite it being at the front of the hotel there was no traffic noise to speak of. The shower room and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel St James for 3 nights and have mixed feelings by our experience. We had major languge problems as we only speak very basic french, and felt that the owner who was always there (so we had no one else to help us) did not go out of his way at all to... More

I spent three nights at the hotel, occupying the top-floor suite. The manager made every effort to accommodate me, even assisting with parking at this very busy time of the season. Rooms were clean and well maintained, and the continental breakfasts delicious. Need to mention two reservations, 1) no separate shower and 2) need for a large fan, since the... More

A friend in Trouville booked this reservation for me in this charming 9 room jewel in the very heart of Trouville for a long weekend visit. The property is absolutely charming, and beautifully decorated. You enter into a warm and welcoming lobby, and the manager of the property is quite friendly and helpful. My room was on the second floor... More

My wife and our 2 year old son stayed here for 2 nights in May 2013. We enjoyed the hotel very much. It has a very comfortable feel of home. We actually discussed that it felt more like we were guests in someone's home than in a hotel. There was a breakfast of coffee, juice and breads each morning. Neither... More

By my count, the Saint James only has nine rooms, but this hotel's all about quality not quantity. I stayed there twice in quick succession, the first time on my own in one of the more basic rooms, and the second time with my wife in a 'suite'. Both rooms were comfortable and clean, but the suite was complimented by... More
