As with another review, the end of our cycling holiday from Bordeaux. Hotel is clean and comfortable, and away from the crowds of the canal. Good breakfast, and friendly host. Convenient to everything you might need. Great outdoor market (can't remember the day) at the end of the street. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel was so convenient and a beautiful walk to the town. It is a great value. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and thoughtfully decorated. It had a small balcony facing the opera house. They offered a nice breakfast buffet. It was very easy to find a place to park the car. The building is charming. We loved Sete... More

Imagine, if you will, cycling fifty miles along the canal du midi route from Le Somail to Sete. Imagine, too, that Sete`s canals and city waterfront is the wonderful surprise it was to me a weary old Englishman on a hot August day. Then to find the two star Hotel Nationale being in such an imposing building raised my morale.... More

Others have noted that this hotel is worth more than its 2-Star rating and I agree. Decor of public areas is tastefully quirky (e.g the casual placing of the antique bicycle on the first floor landing!) and thoughtful decorative touches around the breakfast buffet. Our double room (#7) was adequately sized for the two of us, plainly and freshly decorated.... More

The hotel has been recently renovated and while the fact that the reception is not open until 17:00 could be a problem you are informed when booking. The staff are very helpful giving an introduction to the town and its attractions. The rooms are large for a two star and very well equipped with a good WiFi connection. Being on... More

Whilst this hotel was good value and is clean I would not stay here again or recommend it to friends/family. My first issue was when we arrived to Sete at 1.30 only to realise that the hotel reception was closed until 5pm and the front door was locked. We had travelled for several hours with our 2 year old daughter... More

This is a good place to stay in Sete if you're looking for value & don't want to stay in a 'chain' hotel. Well positioned, not far from restaurants & the port, very charming, helpful & friendly owner who let us leave our bikes & luggage safely, individual decor, well priced & adequate breakfast. Very clean rooms & public areas,... More
