The only good thing I can say about this hotel is its good location downtown and the friendliness of the reception staff. Other than that, I did not enjoy my stay at all. To be fair, I can only judge on the "garden" room I got. It was ugly, smelt damp, and you had to run the shower for 10... More

Very good location. In a place like Arcachon you don't want to stay in the room, so although I didn't like the look of the furniture at all, that didn't make a big trouble. I very much appreciated the extra door isolating the room. That made it noiseless. The bistrôt at the hotel had very nice food and polite staff,... More

It seems that we got a good deal as we paid something around 65€/night without breakfast. We stayed here for two nights and our stay was comfortable. Location is perfect for going to the beach and eating out. We arrived by train, and it is conveniently located just 5 minutes walk from the station. I agree with other reviewers that... More

All in all the Roc Hotel is an okay stay! The room we had, a double with en-suite and balcony, was very clean and there was enough room. It is the place to stay if you are very simply looking for somewhere to sleep. The bed was firm and comfy and we appreciated the air con. Each of the receptionists... More

Just spent a weekend in this hotel with our kids, double bedroom was clean and spacious, the hotel needs to be "refreshed". Kind of old looking, but for 120 € for 4 persons next to the beach what do you expect ? My husband had breakfast at the hotel, we didn't => don't spend the 9 € per person not... More

The charm of Arcachon lies in its location and its century-old ambience. Don't miss the delightfully frivolous villas and bungalows in the Summer and Winter towns, a unique architectural heritage that illustrates the exuberance of a late 19th century seaside resort. The Roc Hotel is a convenient base with friendly and good enough service, but it hardly shares in the... More

Stayed here while visiting family in the town. The Hotel is very well situated, the reception staff were helpful. However the rooms were very outdated - lots of dark wood panelling made for quite an oppressive feeling. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable. The shower, whilst powerful, was a hand held attachment over the bath which made it a bit tricky... More

Good points: Air con was very good and very easy to use which meant we didn't have t open the balcony door to the noisy street so slept fine! The shower was surprisingly strong as usually in hotels showers can often be very weak but not at the Roc hotel! Receptionists were very friendly and helpful breakfast was nice Location... More

Stayed here for 2 nights - had we not prepaid as part of a bike tour we would have moved. Whilst we could not fault the service from the Reception staff at all who were all really pleasant polite and helpful, the hotel let itself down badly from the shabby decor and really uncomfortable and hard beds. The bathrooms definitely... More

stayed for two nights at the end of June 2011. This is an odd hotel which I found hard to review. It appears that what is still two hotels - the nominally three star Roc and the adjoining two star Moderne (Perhaps there is irony involved in the name) appear to be jointly managed with one reception desk. The hotel... More
