The positives first: We enjoyed a very nice room on the top floor. The bathroom is nicely decorated with a lot of wood and mirrors , so you feel a bit like on a cruise ship (of the good sort). The balcony with 2 rocking chairs is a place where we spend a lot of time chilling. Nice garden and... More

Hotel situated on the hill above the town, but walkable from the station. For what it offered it was expensive, and did not come up to the write up that we read on the Internet. The Spa treatments were expensive. Very comfortable bed and excellent shower.

We were on a meandering trip down the South West coast and found ourselves in Arcachon. We sat in the square had a coffee and started an internet search for a place to stay. Then we found Hotel Ville d'Hiver....what a find it proved to be. The hotel has been designed with real care and attention. Our bedroom was comfortable,... More

We stayed for just one night in September. It was memorable for all the right reasons. The staff were impeccably courteous and friendly, especially Nataline who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The restaurant produced some exceptional food, complimented by a fantastic wine list. The only thing missing was a highchair for our young one but,... More

Arcachon is a pleasant busy town with lots of nice shops, a lovely beach and some good restaurants and bars. The Hotel Ville d'Hiver is only a few minutes walk (uphill on the way back) from the lively centre but miles away from the bustle. In the fascinating Ville d'Hiver part of town, the hotel is an oasis of calm... More

Our 4-night stay in the separate cottage (aka l'annexe) was a good surprise to us. The room 13 has access to a large terrace in the garden, which made us feel being home. The hotel architecture is one of the best and most typical you may find in Arcachon. The breakfast choice is very limited and not renewed though, and... More

Stayed for two nights for my birthday, after a delayed train from Paris we were warmly greeted, quickly checked in and shown to our room on the first floor. Even though it was gone 10pm and the kitchen had already closed the chef kindly stayed and cooked for us - quelle service! Service on the terrace was relaxed but professional... More

We stayed 2 nights and I had booked a room category 3, to get a more spacious room. At arrival they had problems to find our reservation and lucky we had the confirmation with us. They did find it at the end under my first name. The setting in an old water company is romantic and very stylish but the... More

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and loved it. We have recommended it to friends who have also loved it. There is a very cool wine bar and restaurant in the hotel. Arcachon is lovely, worth taking a trip to the dunes and walking up the top as the view is amazing! Highly recommend le Cap... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in August 2012 and really enjoyed it. We stayed in the newly renovated annex building, which was nicely decorated and spacious, and spotlessly clean. It was also very quiet, which we appreciated. We arrived late (10pm) and the owners were welcoming. The restaurant was packed but we were too tired to face a... More
