This hotel offered complete privacy, was incredibly quiet, with stunning views. The room was spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. Will definitely stay again. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Great wifi facility too. Suits business or pleasure.

Spent two nights in Room 2 for our 40th wedding anniversary. Spacious room with a great view but very dark inside the room (a light bulb was out) and almost impossible to find somewhere with enough light to put on your makeup. We would've liked to have brunch in the downstairs restaurant but they didn't open until too late (10am... More

Good location lovely views. We had lunch there when we arrived, it took a long time for the drinks and food to come but it was delicious so we didn't mind too much. We also went to go to the bar for a drink at 10 o clock and it was shut! We were told it would be open till... More

Comfortable hotel with an exceptional view. I'd recommend room 2 as there was a lounge suite and a good sized balcony in that unit. Abby will look after drinks and catering for you. There are stairs to the rooms so not suitable for the elderly or physically disabled

Spent 2 nights in Akaroa for our honeymoon - we stayed in room 2 in L'hotel and it was lovely - fantastic views over the harbor and very handy location! Think we had the best room - best views/deck and newer carpet than the rest. Only thing that would have made it tick every box would be having a bath.... More

L'Hotel has one of the best locations in Akaroa. Right on the waterfront across the road from the main wharf. Great place to watch the sun go down and have a catch up with friends with a bevrege or two. The service is always friendly and welcoming. Jennifer and Fiona made our visit special. Happy hour on a Sunday is... More

L'Hotel has rooms with great views. New owners have taken over and staff couldn't have been more helpful. They really went out of their way to make our stay there a pleasurable one. Only thing I would have liked to see was a ceiling fan or air-conditioning in the rooms but it didn't turn out to be a problem as... More

I stayed here about 15 years ago and lived it, this visit was just for coffee and sadly the staff were pretty unfriendly so we didn't bother going back to try the food, maybe next time though I won't be craving back like I have in the past, such a shame...

While staying in Akaroa recently we dined at L'Hotel on our first evening in town. ..The Calamari was devine, so good in fact we felt compelled to return just to check it really was that good. Believe me it was! Service and atmosphere were right up there too.
