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 The elevator is extremely old, the furniture is obsolete.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...

Hotel and room OK however the main selling point is its location on the sea front a minute from the boardwalk running parallel to the beach a short walk to town and several excellent restaurants. Parking is easy and free!

We were staying in the comfort hotel almost across the road and could not handle another night there so we decided to give this hotel a shot. A strange place really cool foyer with some very weird artifacts, i think the black naked gymnast would have been better located in a gay bar overall mostly decorated with rubbish art and... More

Took me a long time to know where to start this review. All of the people we came into contact with during a short, 3-night stay, were very polite and professional. After that, my impression weakens somewhat. The reception area is an eclectic menagerie of ageing furniture, relics, art objects and goodness-knows what else. Kitsch is in its element here.... More

We arrived at the Arc Hotel having made a reservation and paid the one nights deposit. The moment we walked into the reception area the hotel made a bad impression. The sofas were brown leatherette and very worn and there was a strong smell of mosquito repellant or similar. We took an immediate decision not to stay and explained to... More
