Breakfast good, evening meal was ok. Not great. Hotel was clean, bed comfortable. View from our bedroom was of the bins, early morning was noisy. The hotel is well situated, next to the Aquarium, which was fantastic.We enjoyed our stay. The reception staff very helpful. We would return . We enjoyed the visit to the port . Beautiful.

We stayed as "a stop off" on the way from the south to St Malo. Disappointed with location which was a fair walk to the town centre / more popular part of the port (not helped by torrential rain throughout our stay but this was not the hotels fault.) Room was a little "tired and small" No Wi Fi reception... More

About the WIFI, we've just changed the system today, and it works very well now. Hope welcoming you in the future. Kindest regards Elisabeth More

Good location, good parking, good breakfast. Bed is very hard, ok for me.. Plastic cups for cold drinks and cardboard cups for Hot drinks. No complementary bottle water in room, "3 stars" yes, but not a 4 star Hotel.

Booked direct for New Year and had a very pleasant stay. The room was small but well refurbished, the bathroom quite well finished, the TV good but limited to all French channels plus the poor CNN, the bed was too hard for us though. Parking is very good, secure and free. The WiFi OK & free but did not work... More

We stayed for one night and already knew La Rochelle very well. The location of the hotel is excellent - it overlooks the port and there's a free carpark onsite. It's a short walk to the bars, restaurants and shops and right next door to the Aquarium. We arrived early and asked when the room would be ready. To our... More

Stayed at the Mecure for 3 days, Hotel was easy to find and perfect 'free' on sight parking. Rooms quite small but then again quite usual for France but perfectly adequate for a few days stay, very clean and comfortable. Easy and quick walk to numerous restaurants and shopping areas and the Aquarium is right next door. Saturday nights are... More

Easy to find, good car parking, friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are listed as "cabin style" and they are small like the cabins on a ship, although perfectly adequate. The only complaint was the sand that came out of the taps with the bath water. Very strange!

I have limited mobility and depend on my car on holiday. Here I had secure parking and info from helpful staff that meant I could use frequent bus service shuttling to and from the town and places of interest.
