We visited this hotel 15 years ago and since we were passing Arcachon decided revisit for the night. The position of this hotel is excellent right on the beach with a small pool. The rooms are typically old french which has a certain charm .The staff friendly and knowledgeable .Would we go again YES it has the olf french feel.

The room is very old. The air conditioning was not functioning at all. After asking for 2 days the put a mobile air conditioning in the room but with a tube, means you need to leave the whole night the balcony door open. If you turn on the light there are millions of moscitos and the warm air will come... More

Found this Hotel in a French guide "pied dans l'eau". It is situated right at the beach between the habour and the Center of activities. It has ist own Swimming pool. The rooms are nice, but lack a fridge. Breakfast is 18 € p.P. and it is really good for a French Hotel. There is no restaurant at the Hotel,... More

Quaint little hotel situated right on the beach, a short walk from the city centre and the harbour. Rooms are a bit small, but the view from the balcony more than make up for it. It overlooks the beach, with views onto the entire bassin d'Arcachon. The bathroom is also small, but functional. Breakfast is nice, parking onsite is very... More

I am lucky enough to have stayed at rather a lot of hotels and have to say that this one was one of the best. We were off season (beginning of November) and the staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. We selected a room overlooking the beach and sea and what a view! The room wasn't huge but...

If you like a superb location, clean and comfortable room, a BATH ( very unusual in France now), separate loo, charming, polite and helpful receptionists, this is the hotel for you. We had a very reasonably priced room with a balcony not overlooking the sea. Very well placed for restaurants as it is between the port (locals) and town (tourists).... More

Excellent location on the beachfront, a short walk from the town centre. Lovely pool - possibly the best in Arcachon. Room was comfortable, spacious and clean. Fabulous sea view. Breakfast is expensive but there are many cheaper options nearby.

The only two positive points of this hotel are the kindness of the receptionist and the Internet connection speed. The hotel claims a 4 star category in Arcachon, but nothing fits with the classification. The entry hall is chaotic, gloomy and dark. The elevator is extremely old, the furniture is obsolete. You can guess that there is a fitness center,... More

We fell in love with Arcachon and hope to go again. I would stay in the hotel again. It's location is fabulous with direct access to the beach. I even did yoga on the beach. It's steep if you take s beach facing room and may not be value for the £180 we were quoted but since we were going... More

I stayed here on business for one night. Check-in was smooth and the woman at the reception was very polite and helpful. From the lobby you can access the pool which needed cleaned, it was full of sand. The hotel is right on the beach so this might be an ongoing issue. Between the beach and hotel are to elevated...
