We enjoyed our stay last year, but regretted taking a small room on the very noisy street / front side of the hotel. This time we splashed out for the massive loft apartment style room approached by its own external stairs and terrace. A vast volume with polished concrete floor, intriguing lighting and an open fire, which we lit. A... More

We have just stayed 3 nights here and whilst the hotel is very nice some of the rooms are very small and a little cramped, style is shabby chic and comfortable; On making our reservation we were informed that our room "overlooked a quiet village street" unfortunately this turned out to be quite the opposite! All night long we had... More

We spent two nights here in the Loft de Hotel at the end of May. Staff were polite and friendly. The loft was spacious, very well designed and so relaxing we were inclined to spend more time in the room than usual. The internal courtyards of the hotel provide a small pool and tabled seating areas. These spaces are beautifully... More

It's a few years since my two trips to the Senechal but it's still my favourite hotel in the world. The light streaming into the simple, bright rooms, having breakfast among the flowers in the courtyard garden, the thrill of having the little plunge pool to yourself on a hot afternoon... and the stunning island. Ars-en-Re is the loveliest village... More

This was the second time we have stayed at the lovely Senechal in Ars-en.Re and we will be back there next year. Situated just off the main square, this stylish hotel exudes coastal chic with simple but effective furnishings and adequate facilities. The owners are on hand and you are assured of a warm welcome. There is a small patio... More

I stayed at Le Senechal for two nights on my way driving down through France to meet a friend. I could not resist coming back here having stayed here a few years ago and loved it. The hotel is as calm and tasteful as ever. The management are very helpful and the room was very clean. Ars en Re is... More

Stylish eclectic design. The pool and courtyards were very nicely maintained. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated close to are en re square. I would definitely stay here again.

Charming, tasteful hotel. Very beautiful courtyards with lots of flowers in a beautiful area of France. We have now visited this hotel five times, twice having stayed in one of the little houses and always had a great time. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful hotel, very simple and very sympathetic with it surroundings. I think its quite smart -shabby chic! The service was brilliant, young people very keen to help give an energetic vibe. The small courtyard garden overflows with flowers you can ea your breakfast there on a sunny day. Unlike St Martin there is no noise in the morning. We found... More

Totally agree with previous review ' A Charming Weekend'. This hotel was part of a road trip where we stayed for three nights. We unfortunately had a room facing the inner courtyard, it is a bit noisy when people come back to the hotel in the evening. The little courtyard itself is brimming with colouful flowers which we looked down... More
