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

Although the hotel is old, it is in a perfect spot, just off of the beach! Very friendly staff and rooms old but clean. This was from Booking.com at a last minute, as we were staying already at another hotel, which we did not like as the room we had was very dark and small.

A small hotel right on the beach. We stayed in room 32 and had issues: leaky shower in bath with no screen/curtain, leaky air con, concert going on outside our window until midnight (would be great if we didn't have a small child), smallish room. Staff did everything asked of them, including dashing out with daughter's beloved soft toy just... More

We stayed as a party of two families (5 people) and organised it all online. Odile was very helpful and, despite being a little concerned at paying 100% deposit prior to arrival, our expectations were well exceeded when we got there. Arriving prior to check in time, the manager gave us towels and access to a change room so we... More

Be very careful when booking this hotel as on most booking sites it is non refundable full payment . My husband is disabled and we realised after booking they have no restaurant which made our one night stay impossible. Despite 6 weeks notice of the error the director of the hotel has only agreed to refund half the room cost... More

With the end of our holiday in France we just wanted somewhere to enjoy the last of the summer sun we are likely to get. The hotel is comfortable and although we didn't have a front sea-view room we had a side room but could still see the sea. Staff were polite and most helpful. The fabulous beach 2 minutes... More

The hotel is one of the best locations in Arcachon! Although the hotel is quite old, the room is not modern, the location is so convenient to the beach, that impress me so much! It's take a couple of minutes to walk from train station to the hotel, but it just take a few steps to the beach!

Nice hotel with plenty of charm and well furnished, We arrived there on Bastille Day and didn't realize until the evening that the firework display was at the end of the pier right in front of our room, it was amazing sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea and watching the display. The room was clean and a reasonable size... More
