I stayed here for 2 night for my birthday. Loved its location next to the Canal du Midi. Our room was at the back so our view was of roof tops and was very quiet. Liked the design of the hotel with rooms around a central courtyard. Comfortable room, simply furnished, shower only bath. Good value for money. Friendly staff... More

Le Grand Hotel on the canal in Sete is the perfect location to stay if you want to explore the south west coast of France. The staff are charming and very welcoming and make every effort to ensure you have a good time. The reception rooms are large, quirky and comfortable. The art work is unusual and interesting. The restaurant... More

Great location in front of the port and 10minutes walk from Sète's train station. Beautiful building, nicely decorating and nice modern rooms. In the shower, there is just liquid soap used as both shower gel and shampoo. Shampoo bottles would be appreciated. Breakfast is of great quality (fresh croissants and bread).

Hotel is located on the meeting of 2 canals, so the view is fantastic day or night, so atmopheric. The hotel is on a busy street during the day, but at night there is barely any traffic, so no issue for sleeping. The foyer is rather odd in that you need to go up the stairs (no lift) with your...

We chose the Grand Hotel in Sete solely for a canal view room and we were not disappointed. The hotel is located right at the meeting of the 2 main canals in Sete and the overriding reason to stay here is the view. The building itself is quite charming with a large covered courtyard and rooms on 4 floors surrounding... More

From a bygone era...elegant, comfortable and magnificently situated. Within walking distance from the main shopping era, the canals, the restaurant, the beach. The room are spacious and elegantly furnished, the centre atrium is from an Agatha Christie Novel. Locked parking is available. We didn't make use of the bar or restaurant

I spent three nights at Le Grand Hotel in Sete, having found it on Trip Advisor. I so hoped it would look as nice in person as it did in the photos, and it sure did. It is a beautiful old hotel that is beautifully kept up, well-run, small enough that you get excellent detailed service, but not too small.... More

We stayed in this hotel at the end of our holiday cycling along beside the canal de midi. This was an enjoyable and very exhausting trip. The Grand Hotel was situated in the centre of Sete overlooking the Canal. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. It was no problem to leave our very muddy bikes behind the front door.... More

I stayed for 5 days to explore the area around Sete. The location is excellent for visiting the town and market, the lobby is beautiful but I'd say the room was average. It was clean and the double doors to the balcony kept most of the noise out but it's on a busy street on the main canal. The air... More

I stayed here for two nights back in August, the location is fantastic; pretty much slap bang in the centre of a really beautiful town. Although the communal areas are finished to a really high standard, the rooms were all pretty depressing.. Cold, drab and creepy as hell... Trying to sleep was impossible both nights with the road noise being... More
