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

This may be an unfortunate experience but it gave a sour taste at the end of a glorious week in the Bordeaux area. The aircon and heater system of the hotel was not functioning. The manager of the front desk was not aware about this until it was nearly dusk. The original room assigned to us on the ground floor... More

We went to this hotel's restaurant for a romantic dinner. It was rather cosy although the lightening was so dim, we couldn't read the menu. Our starter (soup) was fine, nothing special. The main course, scallops was not edible. There was so much salt that we couldn't eat more than 2 bites. The scallops had a very strong fishy taste.... More

It is worthwhile getting back from the sea vicinity in Arcachon to this hotel in the late nineteenth century slightly art nouveau creation of the quartier Ville d'Hiver. The hotel has been running for nearly three years. Originally it was the water company pumphouse to which genial owners and an architect added restoration and new outhouses for rooms in the... More
