Great food and atmosphere

Hotel had heating which was welcome. The staff were very friendly and the food was perfect. Many seats were reserved due to TV coverage of a footsie game but we were still given great seats and enjoyed our meals.

Outdoor tables with umbrellas overlooking the beach of the harbour. Good vibe. Good selection of drinks. Pleasant staff. Just near the pier.

Good food, great service with a smile, reasonable prices. These guys understand service and the view from the table is just delightful. Must visit when in Akaroa.

Dropped in during the afternoon to look at the menu. Made to feel welcome so booked in for evening meal. Enjoyed the bruschetta followed by a delicious main of mussels while my wife enjoyed a beautifully cooked steak. This was followed by a couple of tasty deserts.

In what would seem to be a quiet night in the middle of the week, this corner dining and hotel establishment, right on the Akaroa waterfront, was simply overrun with people, and yet the service was still very good and attentive.

Delightful position by the harbour, ideal to sit in the late evening sunshine. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal...the catch of the day. Would happily recommend

The menu offers good variety and the two evening meals we had were both well cooked and good value for money. The staff were pleasant and efficient and the busy atmosphere felt just right.

Nice patio right by the water - good spot for lunch or afternoon drinks after a day on the water. WiFi available as well.

We recently spent the weekend in Akaroa and decided to head out for a meal. Akaroa was very busy and we settled on having tea at L'Hotel. The menu was great and the food delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and dining experience. The staff were very accommodating and efficient. We would highly recommend them and will certainly return there... More
