We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2011, and I can only say it was absolutely amazing. The Cap Ferret area in general is a lovely area to visit with the Bassin D'Arcachon and a bit further on St. Emillion and Bordeaux. The hotel is small scale and the room we stayed in was designed in Colonial style with a lot of wood and details. Very tasteful. Our room had a view of the Bassin. The rooms are perhaps not as big as in a regular chain hotel but certainly big enough for two with luggage. The towels are large and the sheets crisp. The hotel was quiet while we were there and we slept well.
We had dinner in the Bistro of the hotel as well and that was absolutely a feast if you are a seafood lover. The area is renown for its oysters and also the scallops were amazing. The desserts are great too. I really recommend to eat at least once a dinner in the Bistro because it adds a lot on your overall hotel experience. You completely forget where you are. The decor is amazing.
The breakfast is French - that has to be your style of course - but the croissants, baguettes, and Madeleines were very good and there were homemade jams and fresh orange juice. Overall a great hotel and at a beautiful location on the Cap. I recommend it!
