Breakfast is great, lots of choice and lovely staff. Reception staff are also very friendly and helpful. Room on the other hand needs decoration modernisation and most of all sound insulation between the rooms. You can hear the TV and phone conversations from your neighbours and also the people stomping around in the room above. Comfortable bed. Excellent view over... More

We stayed two nights at the hotel en route from northern Spain up to the Charante Maritime area of France. The hotel was very centrally placed with great views of the beach and pier. The room and bathroom were in need of a bit of a face lift but were very comfortable and the hotel staff spoke good English and... More

I read the reviews and was not disappointed. We wanted a sandy safe beach for our granddaughter and good seafood restaurants for us. The hotel was comfortable and so were the beds. The staff were friendly and helpful. We could park outside the door and walk to the beach in two minutes. Our terrace overlooked the sea, and our daughters... More

We stayed here for a weekend that we had booked online. This way we got a little better deal so that may have helped my impression as well. As far as location, it was amazing. Right in the heart of things; you couldn't ask for better. The rooms were smallish but large enough, the bed was large and comfortable and... More

I stayed here on a short break to Arcachon and found it to be a grand place to stay. The foyer has two sweeping staircases and very attentive receptionists. Beautiful decor with large installation artworks, fresh flowers, and even fresher croissants available in reception. The room with a sea view was perfect and came with all the little extras (dressing... More

A lovely room, nice hotel in superb location, with helpful and friendly staff. We couldn't work the complicated shower though! Breakfast was at extra cost and I would describe it as adequate. We'd stay there again, but there are better hotels in the area.

Stayed here for 3 nights hotel is in great location right by the waterfront - very very basic hotel with no extras like tea/coffee making, mini bar etc . Walls paper thin and can hear everything going on in next room. Our room had a bath only with hand held shower head and no curtain which made for very wet... More
