this is a lovely small hotel in an excellent location, close to the beach and the small town of St Palais.....2 min walk to either, with plenty of good restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotel itself is a delight! New owners are making a great impression and a new wine/tapas bar in the garden area will soon add to its... More

Conveniently situated in a quietish location, very handy for the beach. Charming gentleman on reception who spoke excellent English. Good breakfast in a light, airy room. Lots of notices asking guests to consider others when returning late etc. - they worked! Comfortable room, very clean and some nice stylish touches. Overall a very good stay and would recommend to travellers... More

We stayed here for one night with our two small children before flying back home. We wanted one last day and night on the beautiful st palais sur mer beach. When booking over the phone with rusty French, the hotel manager couldn't be more helpful and booked us a 'junior suite' which had two small rooms (one double and one... More

A very well situated hotel near the beach and town centre. Friendly and helpful staff. Room basic but very clean and functional. Did not indulge in breakfast, but many fine eating establishments nearby. On main road, but very quiet overnight. Well recommended.

This hotel suited us perfectly. It was off the beach and not overlooked. The beach and restaurants were 2 minutes away. We booked the more expensive (but not much) room with terrace. This actually meant that we were a level below the hotel. There were just 4 rooms with their own area and private access to the side street. This... More

This hotel is a bit of the beaten track compared to most of Royan hotels. It offers good prices, but rooms are small. Rooms on ground floor do offer a patio access but are pretty dark due to small windows. Hotel is close to the beach but with strange water colour probably due to bay sand. Good breakfast and very...

The rooms were very small -we had two, the first had the hand basin in the room with a very small closet for the shower and toilet. No drawer space and no seating at all other than the bed. The second room was advertised as having a terrace, it did, but it was approximately 1 metre wide by 2 metres... More

This is by way of an odd review because we never did get to stay at the hotel itself! We booked a few days away but en route we had a tyre blow out and it took several hours to get help. We contacted the hotel to say we would be a day late and they were very helpful on... More

We stayed here for two nights with our two little boys to enjoy the beach. The location is the absolute selling point of this hotel. We were able to get secure parking near by but this has to be reserved since they have only a few places. The owner Christine is really wonderful and made our stay as comfortable as... More

We stayed here for one night on our way to the Ile de Re and had a very pleasant experience. the hotel is clean and modern and we had a double room with a comfortable folding bed for our little daughter. The hotel is very close to the beach and we were able to park just outside for free. Breakfast... More
