The hotel was easy to find and has plenty of parking , which would be essential in summer. Very convenient position for the town and beach. The rooms are very small and very dated, The twin room had two small beds which were not comfortable and no space around them It was okay for one night but any longer would... More

By staying at Hotel Opera in Bordeaux for (2) nights, a 20% discount to this hotel was offered (same owners). The Hotel Dauphin is well located, with a 5 mins walk to the Arcachon Bay. Room (#410) was confortable and our bathroom was new, with a bath and shower (we had seen negative comments on this element, but it was... More

We booked this hotel as our first choice was closed for a winter spruce up & we got a deal including breakfast. There is nothing really negative to say about this place - rooms are slightly small but perfectly adequately appointed & warm (ours had 2 balconies). Staff were very friendly (speaking some English too), breakfast was good & we... More

Stayed there four nights for a business trip. The room and bathroom was rather small but given that I was alone this was absolutely fine. The staff was friendly, breakfast ok. The beach is within walking distance of less than ten minutes. I did it several times in about six, but I'm a rather fast walker.

Not the greatest hotel in the world but close to everything, friendly, clean and quiet. Good parking, smallish but perfectly formed rooms. Staff were nice and would have spoken in English had we needed to.

Beautiful period building, great location, amazingly helpful and friendly staff, lots of free extras such as bathing towels for the pool and/or beach, a guided tour of Arcachon etc. Nice and clean... What more could you ask for?

We've stayed at Le Dauphin on several occasions - this most recent one was our 3rd - and, on the whole, we've found it very pleasant. Having stayed in other hotels in Arcachon over the years, the two pluses for us are the private parking and the swimming pool. The car park gets quite full, but the surrounding streets are... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Hotel Le Dauphin in early May 2012. The hotel, built in 1895, was one of the many architecturally interesting residences in Arcachon. The 10 minutes walk to the bay, along a wide boulevard bordered with these residences was very pleasurable. Our room, on the third floor, was bright and spacious for... More

I was warned on here that the rooms are small - er wrong , they are tiny - imagine a cabin on a ferry boat & you get the idea. As usual conference customers take preference - hence blokes banging doors at 7 in the morning The breakfast room is in a half basement with no views of the so... More

The hotel is a long walk from the centre of the town and although adequate and reasonably comfortable, the room we had was small and not worth the money we paid. The air conditioning did not work so we had to leave the window open which meant being woken up by the rubbish collection just as we had got off... More
