Note sure we have ever been to a place we hated so much. We disliked nearly everything. From the moment we arrived when we were told we did not have car parking reserved (even though we had confirmation) and that if we did want secure parking it was 30 euro a night we were on a downward spiral. (At checkout... More

A beautiful place to stay but choose your room carefully as they are a little small. Real French charm and beautifully decorated with typical Ile de Re decor. The fig home fragance that enhances the hotel can be bought and is well worth taking home to remind you of the place.....a lovely relaxing feel. Breakfast is home made and is... More

stayed here for a blissful holiday, beautiful hotel in a lovely town. the rooms are very tastefully decorated, lovely little garden - great place to take an aperitif before dinner in town. when you get back the garden is tastefully decorated with candles must hire a bike

This hotel is a bit Marmite - you love it or don't get it. We love it (this was our second stay): beautiful, imaginative decor, and very tranquil. Breakfast great - but no other meals served here. Great location too. Bit pricey, but you're staying in the heart of Ile de Re for goodness sake, so what do you expect!... More

We had a lovely one nights stay in the garden room just by the courtyard. We were met warmly by the owner Alain and felt very at home! We had a gorgeous breakfast in the garden preceded by a long and very deep bath in our bedroom! I cannot complain. I have noted other guests got too hot we opened... More

We stopped over in Ile de Re on the way from Paris to Biarritz, and we loved Maison Douce. It's tucked away, and nice and quiet and we had a brilliant night's sleep followed by an amazing breakfast of pastries, ham, cheese, bread and yoghurt. The bed was comfortable and the place was charming and beautiful. If you're looking for... More

Positives: We quite liked the shabby chic style of this hotel and the bed comfort was good. We liked the hotel's garden as well as the hot tub area which we could book to use free of charge as well as the friendliness of the female owner/staff member? Negatives:We strongly felt that the value for money here was poor, although... More

Typically French shabby chic as you enter from the street, gorgeous fig smell in reception. Garden is charming in an overgrown 'secret' garden kind of way. Room smelt stale - shame the fig didn't make it up the stairs. Plumbing was a bit cranky had to get partner to hold the lever down on the mixer so the shower worked... More

A return visit to this lovely island and a return to this charming, quirky, shabby chic little gem. Spotless linen, calm and totally unlike the usual bland and anonymous hotels in this price range. We appreciate the unobtrusive but helpful management and delight in the lovely breakfast served with style in the pretty garden. Second visit but not the last.
