Currently curled up in a super king sized comfy bed in a very large room overlooking the garden. Hotel lives up to all the positive reviews. The hotel is grand, spotless and in an excellent location. When booking request a room overlooking the garden. If necessary,ask for help with air conditioning - it does work and is the clearest, freshest... More

We could not have wished for more. A gorgeous room, wonderful air conditioning, friendly helpful staff and a perfect breakfast. This is a quiet hotel not far from the main shopping area of La Rochelle and within walking distance of the old port. Excellent parking around the hotel at a reasonable price. We could have used the hotel car parking... More

My partner and I stayed here for just one night while travelling back to London. We arrived early but an early check-in was no problem and we waited just a few minutes while housekeeping hoovered the quiet garden room I'd asked for. Parking? Yes, no problem. Bring the car around and leave your bags and I will sort that out... More

My wife and I first stayed here two years ago, and had no hesitation in booking again for a week's visit in July 2014, taking one of the charming and traditional suites in the old building - at the front, but untroubled by street noise. The hotel is perfectly placed, with the old harbour and its many restaurants only minutes... More

stayed here in July for 5 nights, managed to get a better deal by booking through the La Rochelle tourist information portal, than direct through the Best Western one. as a consequence the room was small but suited our needs. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel itself is in a good location in the middle of the town, near... More

This hotel worked well for us for our week's stay in lovely La Rochelle.The gardens are nice, the location very central and the staff were helpful. Yes the decor is a little tired but the room was clean, a good size and had a nice view of the gardens. We would stay again.

The rooms and gardens totally lived up to expectations. Gorgeous and the suite with balcony overlooking the garden was great. Good value for money. The downsides.....the staff were all pleasant but some were clearly disinterested although still pleasant, maybe a language issue??? The breakfast was ok but could benefit with improvement in the hot dishes. The lack of a decent... More

This was my second stay at Hotel Champlain and as enjoyable as the first. A lovely hotel in a great position - central yet quiet. Excellent, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Delightful staff. And a beautiful walled garden to relax in with a glass of wine at the end of the day. I would highly recommend the hotel.

We chose this hotel on the basis of it being number 1 hotel for La Rochelle and I was left really disappointed. The hotel itself is pretty dated, the room was small and stuffy. Air con was not working and we had to keep the widow open but was kept awake by the noise of traffic outside. First appearances are... More

Just back from a 3 day stay in La Rochelle. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. Fantastic location, easy walk to both the harbour and the town centre. As many other reviewers have said the staff are wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful even to those of us who can speak only a few words of their beautiful language! The... More
