We stayed for one night recently. The Hotel is situated near the beach and centre of town. Our room had a small balcony and was on the street side. All the rooms seem to be on the first floor. Our room was clean and comfortable. We found the staff pleasant and helpful. English was spoken. The garage is a little... More

This hotel is very hard to write about because it is different. The town of Arcachon is like the Myrtle Beach of France (if I had to do it again I wouldn’t have gone to Arcachon), and the hotel reminds me of a hotel by the sea in the Who rock opera “Quadrophenia”. The people were extremely nice and it... More

We were delighted with the location of this hotel but not at all impressed with the hotel itself. It was like stepping back in time. The staff were really nice and friendly. I think 3 stars would definitely be more apt. It was expensive for the one night we stayed here; We were in room 17; the room was outdated... More

Great location just in front of the sea. Small and cosy hotel. Very nice rooms, all with a terrasse. You can order your breakfast and it will be served on your terrasse without charging money! Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast buffet is excellent.

This is maybe not quite a four star but it is close. It is steps away from the beach and promenade. The rooms each have a small balcony, or access to a larger terrace. They are clean, not large but comfortable size. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is decent for €15 and includes eggs, sausage, bacon along with... More

Fantastic location near beach, towels for beach provided no extra charge. Room quite small but made up for by our own little terrace and shared but private decked area looking out to sea with loungers. Breakfast served at no extra cost in room on our terrace - freshly made and arrived quickly. Only stayed one night would have liked another... More

The hotel is located just a few steps from the beach and quite a few decent restaurants, and it was nice to wake up to the sound of the waves. The breakfast also far exceeded my expectation with fresh squeezed orange juice and good selection of pastries, meats and fruits. Most of the staff were also very helpful. The hotel... More

Located on a side street just off the beach, Hotel Point France makes an acceptable place to stay. Several good seafood restaurants are just a few steps away, and Arcachone's main shopping street is just a few steps in the other direction. The booking office and departure point for ferries and harbor cruises are also very close by. The property... More

On arrival at the hotel the staff were very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The room had a nice outlook of the sea and the terrace was modern and well appointed. The room was comfortable and clean. The decor was an eclectic mix of colours and styles but the overall effect was somehow homely. There were a number... More

Friendly hotel, walking distance from the station, very near the shops and a few steps to a guarded beach perfect for swimming. A bike hire shop is just outside the entrance - perfect for exploring the area. Lots of choices of restaurants and cafes at night. Very safe and friendly area.
