Had a spectacular five course meal two choices each course. A good way to spend New Year's Eve. Compliments to the chef and his team, he did us proud. Service very good. Good choice of wine. Good company. Cosy lounge. Easy parking. The building itself is stunning.

A well maintained hotel in a great location. The rooms are well appointed and of good quality. Staff is friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is simple but excellent in quality whereas the dinner restaurant offers outstanding quality of cuisine with a well varied menu. On the downside, the receptionis not well manned/staffed and you need to find the employees if... More

When Form is more important than content in a place which could be a real Gem! On the positive...Beautiful building, great deco On the negative...No concept of hospitality... Looks like this hotel is run by people who have no idea about service. Room in the "annexe" are shoe box size and charged at a premium rate. Dinner service very chaotic... More

Let´s start with the positive: nice rooms, beautiful location and design. Restaurant is great for dinner. Negatives: - on arrival four of the staff was sitting outside the reception smoking/chatting. This occurred several times during the rest of our stay - not nice. - The staff is barely english speaking and we got little help with our bags - which... More

Hotel Ville d'Hiver is one of my favourite hotels of all time...the building itself is beautiful, as you drive up you are in complete awe of the surroundings. The warm welcome that you receive at this stunning hotel makes the arrival even more joyful, as so many reviewers have written before me Virginie is an absolute asset to this property... More

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.

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
