Hotel is basic and room could use refurbishment. Would have been ok but the noise from the harbour was unbearable. I was kept awake all night as a huge tanker was preparing to make sail. If you are staying here for business then you may as well stay at a resort as the distance to the business district is at... More

The hotel was good for a business trip with immediate access to the commercial district for shopping and entertainment. There is no beach, as the hotel looks out over the nearby port, but beaches are easily reached by taxi. The staff were professional and attentive and the food very good, especially the gourmet restaurant.

Stayed here on a stopover between KL and Cape Town on Air Mauritius. Really enjoyed the experience. Good service. The breakfast was very good as we got early morning room service to catch a early flight. No Complaints.

The hotel is truly first rate, the rooms are a decent size and well furnished. I particularly like the little extra touches in the bathroom where in addition to the usual toiletries, they also provide bath salts and bath oil. Breakfast is excellent. The coffee is as good if not better than you find in France! The staff are always... More

Nice building. Great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are comfortable but, in 2 separate visits with different rooms, there were lamps, which did not work. Breakfast service in the dining room could be great (when the female staff were there) to bad (when only the males were there). We did not use the dining room at night but used... More

This is one of two sister hotels on the waterfront in Port Louis. The other is Le Suffren, which is excellent. This is a good hotel, staff always helpful, especially after I learned my flight home had been delayed by 20 hours. The hotel is ideally situated for those doing business in Port Louis and the facilities are excellent. For... More

Our tour group was spending the first night at this hotel. Wife and I were dropped off by taxi at 4.45pm to find there was no room ready for us. We were shown to a VIP Club Lounge to wait. This lounge was well appointed and had free internet access, but only one of the coffee cups was still clean... More

Only for business, but it is the only reason staying in Port Louis. Nothing special. That is not a place you would like to stay. Not good, not bad ... It is presented as 5*, but no spa, the swimming pool is 5 meters long, at 2nd floor. It is not how you can imagine Mauritius. And an hugly view... More
