Seems to have been refurbished recently but keeping the tone of the past. Lovely period feel to the lobby and atrium but rooms unfussy minimalism. Bars and seafood restaurants within short walk. An unusual place to stay but a delight

We stayed here for 2 nights in June and had a really lovely room on the top floor (341). Our room was large and modern and really well decorated and finished. The view from our small balcony was lovely, right at the intersection of the canals - it couldn't have been better. Reception was really helpful and friendly. We would... More

I have been booking Le Grand Hotel for more than 4 years now, always in the same days in July, and I have to say it gets better and better. I book double superior room, and I stayed in room 104, recently refurbished and with a new bathroom. The greatest view of the Canal, the quiet and spacious room with... More

Beautiful interior for a hotel with interesting art. Classic architecture and drinks are served in the lobby if you are looking for a nightcap after strolling the Canal du Midi. We did not have a chance to try the restaurant or the breakfast buffet, as we only had one night in Sete and were on a tight schedule. The staff... More

We came here for the first time on a stop over during our honey moon. The hotel staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. We got a canal view room with complimentary flowers from the staff. The hotel is located in the very heart of the city and a small parking lot is available nearby. I would truly recommend this... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights at the Grand Hotel on the recommendation of two separate friends. Unfortunately we weren't able to get a room overlooking the canal, but the side-room we were offered was compact but very comfortable. Service was extremely friendly and helpful and breakfasts were OK - not much choice but we're not into elaborate b/f... More

We decided to make a stop over in Sète on our way to Spain. We loved the place, because it is centrally located and the building atmosphere is very special. Our room was located on the side street. The room was spacious, including the bathroom. Heavy rainfall was a challenge for the city as well for the hotel. But all... More

if you pick the right room (104, in front of the canal), if you avoid the restaurant and the breakfast and if the weather is not too hot, you should have a very nice stay. It is beautiful inside. Séjour très agréable, malgré le restaurant "gastronomique" déplorable, vrai point noir de cet hôtel.

We had the a pleasant stay in Sete, we had the central suite and had a great view overlooking the canal. The reception staff were just OK, they gave the impression they had better things to do.... The hotel was grand in its day but now seems a little run down 'tatty around the edges' its still a nice place... More

I was fascinated by their web site so decided to give it a try. If you like a bit of history and atmosphere you should try this hotel. The lobby and and the floors give you a good idea of what this place must have like in the late 1800's. It a great location overlooking the Canal de Midi. Our... More
