We are a family of 5 adults and stayed at La Rousette for 2 weeks during the Monsoon seasons end June / beginning July. During wet weather we were quite comfortable to stay at the Hotel and relax as a family, playing cards and pool games like volley ball .Our rooms were clean, comfortable and beautifully made up every day...

Having been in the travel trade for over 12 years, I feel that some of the comments/reviews, are unfair and unfounded. I for one, believe that La Roussette is a lovely, quaint and charming family run hotel. The Robert family have run the hotel for many years, and the son Ronald has taken up the reigns a few years back.... More

Having being delayed getting into Mahe, we had to overnight somewhere prior to getting our connection to Praslin. The tour operator arranged for us to stay here. Upon arrival at circa 9PM, there was no option for dinner as we had missed it. We had a couple of drinks then went to bed. The rooms were clean and tidy with... More

This mini hotel is good value for money- amenities are clean and "fresh". We found the service levels to be personalised with the receptionist going out of her way to ensure that we were settled in despite booking in late in the evening. The hotel is ideal for a 1 or two night stop and is 10 mins from the... More

Really good place with friendly and helpful staff. You can feel that staff is constantly worried about your well being. The manager is ready to help in unexpected situations - he gave us a lift when the road was closed and we were late to the ferry. Staff adapts to your daily rhythm - eating and room cleaning is always... More

Totally over priced. Does not worth to stay there. We arrived late (around 7:30pm) and there was no option for dinner but in the hotel restaurant since the hotel is isolated upon a hill. We were charges for a piece of fish, steam rice about 30eur/ea. total ripof. Has been probably the most expensive light meal ever paid in seychelles... More

Ronald R, Manager at La Roussette, responded to this review

After many consecutive positive traveler reviews about our Hotel in the last few months, it is disheartening to get such a negative review. However, no matter how aggrieved one may feel, one has to sometimes “take it on the chin” as the saying goes and push forward. We shall take the positive parts of this review (such as the cleanliness... More

We stop over here on our way to a week in a villa. Close to the airport and with large rooms with a king size and a full size bed, our group had 3 adults in each room comfortably. Breakfast is included and was made to order. It was so nice that we booked the place on the way back.... More
