we stopped for 2 nights and we went for a high floor room.This proved to be an advantage as you could see over the tall buildings opposite.The ferry coming and going and the town and countryside all fascinating. The breakfast was very good and the room was unusual with the african themed decor but all adds to staying in hotels... More

Small hotel right across the road from the beach. 1 minute walk to marina and restaurants with beach tarases. A gentlemen at reception was extremely nice and helpful with all informations we needed. Room was a bit dated but furnished with stile. Bathroom and bedroom was very clean and I would totaly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in Roatn for one night, this was just as a stopover not a holiday period stay. Nevertheless, we found it clean and about right for the 3 star rating and frankly clean is the number one thing for me. It's situated very near a beach and a stones throw from the restaurants along the sea front. We had... More

The rooms at this hotel are on the small side but they are clean. The same applies to the bathrooms. There are sea view rooms and others, facing to the back. We where there in foggy winter time, so we didn't bother about the views, but I'm not so sure if it worth the extra money at other times of... More

We stayed in this hotel while on the cycling holiday and the hotel staff were more than accommodating. We dropped our bags there earlier in the day, and when we checked in later found that they had been put in our room (rather than having to retrieve them from a baggage store someplace). They managed to get our bicycles down... More

As already mentioned, from outside the Foncillon does not look much; inside however it's another story. The decoration is pleasant, and varies according to theme (on the 5th floor it was Africa). Room size appears to vary - we were in no 56, which was well-appointed, with adequate drawer and hanging space, and with a spacious bathroom, but I gather... More

Foncillon was definitely a pleasant surprise. The rooms all have their own unique style, decorated in a humouros and welcoming manner. But more important; the rooms are clean and the bathrooms are of good standards with a relaxing atmosphere. Not to forget:the staff was very helpful and friendly.

Was in this hotel for two weeks. Small cute rooms with tiny shower, you could hardly bend down to wash your feet! Clean and good enough breakfast. Location is good - close to the sea and shopping area. The room I stayed was decorated with fishing net (see picture). Friendly staff and English speaking. No airconditioning. No restaurant for lunch/diner... More

This (almost) sea front hotel in Royan entirely met our needs for a one night stopover. Our room was fairly small, typical for a 3 star seaside resort hotel in France, but clean and comfortable, albeit decorated in a rather eccentric orange and black colour scheme and lacking in air conditioning. Like so many similar hotels it has no car-parking... More
