Stayed in a comfortable and spacious room at this very pleasant hotel. The room on level 6 had a great view of Port Louis waterfront where yachts as well as commercial ships were moored. The room had a balcony where the cool evening breeze could be enjoyed. Excellent service. And a fascinating fish pond in the lobby ... !

This is good option if you are in Port Louis for business. The lobby is small but lovely, the restaurant(s) are very good - though expensive, and the rooms are small-ish and clean - but have a very musty smell. Don't waste your time seeking out a waterfront room - as the harbour is extremely industrial and there is the... More

Dear Marie B, Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback. Our restaurants cater mostly for mauritian businessmen/business travelers, which is why we offer very affordable prices for a 5 star hotel, ranging from 6 to 40 euros. Our rates are 40 % less than resorts. We highly recommend the Happy Hour at our sister Hotel, Le... More

Very nice hotel in Port Louis. The city is quite boring, and missing a nightlife. However, the hotel is very nice and well located. The pool is quite small and there are no beaches in Port Louis. Therefore, be ready f

I have stayed at this hotel on 4 occasions. It is well located if you are planning to do business in Port Louis. Rooms are a good size, menu is excellent and service is top notch. Only negative is the lack of free wifi. Having to pay for wifi in a 5 star hotel is really irritating.

After waiting over an hour and a half at the Airport to get my bag from the Air Mauritius London flight this hotel was a sight for sore eyes. There are money changing facilities as soon as you walk out past customs. For the first time traveller if you don't know there are duty-free shops next to arrival baggage carousel... More

Would I return -- absolutely -- BUT (read on). Lots of good and true things have been written on this hotel -- business orientation, central location, great restaurants, and so on, but a few folks have commented that five star status is no longer warranted. Perhaps so. The bathroom mirror is dark; bad lighting in the room (4-25 watt bulbs,... More

With 200,000 frequent flyer points about to expire with Qantas, we booked a return trip for Christmas at Labourdonnais as this hotel purportedly has the best restaurant on the island (it does although Le Capitane's at Grand Baie would go close). Trouble is that I made it for January in error, so we had 23-27 January at Port Louis but... More

This hotel was included in our Air Mauritius business class fare to Joburg. After a great flight from Perth we were left waiting in the minivan for our transfer to this hotel for 1.5hours! Not what you want after a long flight. The hotel beautifully situated on the waterfront was a welcome sight when we eventually arrived. Courteous and quick... More

An overnight stay for a New Years treat turned from being a delightful evening to being blasted by a local DJ who didn't get the clientele. Forget sleep! Check-in done very well, desk staff and porters charming. Room pleasant but a strong odour of new paint - the quick squirt of room freshener didn't work. headache in the morning. Breakfast... More

The hotel is on the waterfront overlooking the port. There is no beach! This is not a vacation hotel. One enters to a marble floored entry hall that is tastefully decorated. Friendly staff greets you and the check-in process is quite efficient. A glass elevator takes you to up to the 6th floor. Very comfortable rooms with a small balcony... More
