I stayed at this hotel 6 nights during the course of a Thalassotherapy cure at the adjoining Thalgo Spa.
The rooms: I was upgraded upon arrival (always a nice surprise, and very unexpected since I was travelling alone). The room is a bit dated (heard that rooms would have been redone if it hadn't been for the financial crisis), but spacious and extremely clean. Very comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful housekeeping staff.
The restaurant: Excellent food, friendly and professional service, although they did get a bit overwhelmed during dinner some of the days, as the hotel was full due to school holiday in Paris and any of the guests were there with children. The possibility of taking breakfast in the room at no additionnal charge is a definite plus. I did however miss the possibility to take a lighter meal at the hotel, as both restaurants served full meals but no salads or snacks.
Other services: The Thalgo centre is just fantastic, nothing else to say. Great pools (I love salt water pools). Free use of bicycle, which is very nice since the centre og town is a 15 minutes walk from the hotel.
Conclusion: As part of a package with the Thalgo centre, this was a good value stay and I would definitely repeat the experience. I really appreciated the friendliness and efficiency of the service on all levels, which in my view compensates for the somewhat dated rooms. Note: since my mother thongue is French, I have no idea how service quality may be perceived by non-French speakers.
