I'm giving this 4 stars because the staff were very helpful and courteous. The location of the hotel and the main part of the hotel is modern and clean, that is where it stops. The rooms resemble a North London bedsit, dull uninteresting and completely out of sync with the rest of the hotel. We didn't eat here so I... More

It's a pity to have to give this hotel only 3 stars as the positives are many.We stayed in the hotel not the adjoining block of self catering apartments. The location is excellent ,on a historic street,with adjoining ground level premises ,all converted to to unique retail units ,to give a vibrant daytime atmosphere and a quiet night time.its 10...

I'd never visited this area before so I knew nothing about it so I was completely surprised to discover how very beautiful the hotel and town are. We were greeted as soon as we drove up and welcomed by two very kind and helpful ladies who showed us where to park our rental car in the underground garage. The hotel... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and it wasn't made clear by booking dot com that the five star badge doesn't apply to the self catering residence part of the hotel as well as the old part of the building...maybe not the fault of the hotel. Our room was ok but didn't quite live up to expectations, no aircon was... More

We stopped at La Rochelle on our journey south. We were originally given an apartment in the new building ( which must be 50 years old ) several things were wrong so we moved to the hotel proper at a small increase in cost. This was really nice and spacious and much better value. The staff wee so helpfull in... More

Have just returned from a 3 night stay in La Residence, great staff, clean accommodation, kitchenette ideal for short stays, adequately equipped. Surprised the provision was there for toiletries and fresh towels/bed linen especially as this is a self catering establishment. Very close to harbour, shops, restaurants with great helpful staff.

We drove from Ireland to La Rochelle and parked in the hotel carpark and were able to walk everywhere. It is very central, 5 minutes walk to the port, to excellent resturants and shopping. We found the staff lovely and the hotel suite great. We were lucky as a replica of the French navy frigate L'Hermione that brought General Lafayette... More

This hotel is literally in the perfect location of La Rochelle. It is a block away from the old market, and it's in the middle of LR's best shopping. It's a 5 minute walk to the port as well as LR's beautiful parks that weave through town. The staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and friendly, and the accommodations... More

Loved this place, which when we stayed was quiet, calm, maybe under-occupied. We had what they called an apartment, which was just a nice comfortable hotel room with a bathroom and a fridge/hotplate/microwave combo in an alcove with a decent fan, so cooking smells did not get into the main room. We'd asked for a kettle and they left one... More

I was completely confused when I was reached our room. After a long day's cycle ride I was looking forward to a bit of pampering in a five star hotel as advertised. This was not that. It was a dated three star hotel - decor was a bit 90s with bits of paint flaking off the walls and mismatched furniture.... More
