“Close to Collioure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014

Booked with Hotels.com a double sea view room. We were given room #4 at ground level with a terrace and sea view. The view and little terrace was great. The room was also very good, incredibly spacious however the bathroom was set up for wheelchair access. I'm not sure if this was the only room available with sea view and the only option reception had to give us - but a standard bathroom would have been more comfortable. The bathroom was huge because it was wheelchair accessible but the rain shower was too powerful for the drain and there was water everywhere. The air conditioning worked well, along with Wi Fi. Parking is provided and there seems to be plenty. Our room was at the end of the hall and even though there was an outside door next to our room, it was 'very' quiet. There were two doors into our room so this definitely provided a sound proof barrier which was excellent. Never heard anything such as road noise, train, etc., incredibly quiet room. A great room for sleeping as it was very dark thanks to excellent drapes. Staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming.

The hotel is on the D114, not in the town of Argeles. Located between Argeles and Collioure, stay on the D114 and you can't miss it. Lovely grounds and well kept garden. We took a balcony room, which was more expensive, but worth every euro. Hotel located in elevated position, so the views over the bay of Argeles, and of the pool were great. Tea and coffee facilities in the room, a bonus in French hotels. So refreshments on the balcony, in the afternoon, with the sun just enough to keep you warm. Great place to relax, even though the road and railway track are very close, this was not an issue for us - just take in the views!
Would recommend a car as hotel does not have a restaurant, and besides there are so many places to visit, eat and drink, why miss them?
Wi-Fi connection good, and free. Parking, lots of it, free and secure. Clean friendly hotel, very recommendable, and we shall be back to continue our Collioure-Banyules experience. Great weekend away, thank you.

Green Features: The proprietor is especially keen on the environment, inside and outside the hotel. He took time to ask us our opinions, and shared with us, the future plans for the hotel. During our stay the owner spoke with many of the guests.

We booked here when the B&B we wanted to stay at in Collioure was full. The sea-view rooms were all reserved; nonetheless,our garden room was lovely. We had an enclosed sun room off the bedroom with two comfy chairs, and a table and chairs and 2 lounge chairs were on the patio. Great place for a light dinner after sightseeing in Collioure. The staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very peaceful. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to the heart of Collioure. The restaurant only serves a breakfast buffet so plan your meals accordingly.

Green Features: I really like hotels that use the room key to activate the lights--wish more hotels in the US did that.

We stayed 2 nights when the weather was still warm in October. We found the hotel to be well staffed and appointed. No complaints at all! All I would say is that you really need a car to stay here, but otherwise I would certainly go back.

We stayed at Les Mouettes in mid September for two nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary (we met in Argeles sur Mer 31 years ago!). The staff were very friendly throughout our stay, and were very helpful arranging restaurants and taxis. The hotel has a fantastic view of the Argeles seafront and beach. The swimming pool and hot tub are excellent, and the breakfast is very good. They don't, however, have a restaurant for evening meals - which didn't bother us since we planned to eat in the local towns. The hotel is out of town, and it costs 12€ to get to Collioure or 15€ to Argeles.

We stayed at this Hotel in August 2014 for 5 nights. The location is a few miles from the lovely village of Collioure (€12 by taxi), and so is good for touring the area. The staff were helpful. There is a nice swimming pool. We had a room with a sea view, but, alas, most of the view was blocked by an evergreen tree.
The Hotel has no lift. I was not enthusiastic about hauling two 20 Kg suitcases up two flights of stairs. Two members of staff, a young man and a young lady, were sent to help. I couldn't let the young lady lift such a heavy suitcase, so I carried one and the young man carried the other. Not ideal!
Breakfast was on offer for €13.50 - it was limited in content and poorly organised.
