The hotel offers breathtaking views of the harbour and beyond. The style of a Mediterranean villa, beautifully decorated restaurant with sweeping views, fabulous meals, outdoor swimming pool, excellent room with balcony and panoramic view, good private parking.

I regret that I am unable to give this hotel a better rating. We stayed in this hotel a year earlier and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. So much so, that I booked the same 2nd floor sea view room (440) last January for a 5 night stay for last week. The hotel still has the excellent views of the ocean... More

The hotel is clean and tidy but showing its age Could do with a major revamp but for a single nights stay it was adequate Service in reception and the restaurant was great - very friendly staff Menus in French only which makes it difficult if limited French W

Stayed here on short notice when our original accommodation fell thru. Very pleasant staff, reasonable prices but others have said, a little dated. So all in all a nice 3* hotel, wouldn't want to stay more than a weekend, adequate.

Plus points were location and view. External areas were very good. However I'm puzzled by the good ratings given by other visitors. The hotel is fairly tired and could use an upgrade in the rooms and interior public areas. The main negative was the food and as the hotel offers only half board this is a significant negative. The chef... More

This hotel has definite pros and cons. The pros: terrific food, very nice staff, comfortable beds, clean rooms and a good view. The cons: terrible and messy shower over bath, loo with no extractor fan, horribly loud exterior air con motors which go all night, paper thin walls (which means you can hear the people next door in their loo!)...

Well located high up above Banyuls with lovely panorama. I had a delightful Sea-Side room, one of the few with a tiled floor. Decent restaurant, excellent local wines, especially Les Tines. Kind service, maybe a bit understaffed. Value for money, taking account this is an expensive area. Would return.

Hotel is very nice but a bit dated. The staff are generally very nice, cheerful and all speak good English. The food in the restaurant for dinner is good but breakfast a bit disappointing. The chambermaid's standards could be higher and they need to be more aware of guests.

This older hotel serves amazing food! We enjoyed the set 4 course menu which includes an extensive selection from cheese trolley. The rooms are pleasant and clean but very dated. The wifi is intermittent. The pool could be cleaner. But a good base if you travelling this way.

Perched on a cliff top overlooking the Mediterranean this hotel is in a wonderful location affording panoramic views that are simply stunning. The restaurant is superb serving gourmet dishes at very reasonable prices. A wonderful find.
