“Difficult owner”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

The room was spacious, but run-down, and the bath far too small even to shower in; lack of shower curtain made the task difficult.
The owner is said to have 'character': my problem was that I couldn't find the good side.
On the upside, the bed was comfortable.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We booked this hotel for one night The biggest draw back was that we had to stay there.
the room we had for 2 adults and 2 children was two rooms bodged together,with two double beds that were hard as bricks. The bahroom was part of one room partitioned off with a sliding door of chipboard, a 3/4 size bath with no shower curtain, a shower head that could could not stay in a fixed position and a sink and tiolet that did not match. The pictures on the website look nice but do not be fooled by the photos.
Probably the worst hotel I have stayed in (and I have stayed in some bad ones over the years)
€125 for room only was robbery

This is a charming family run hotel where you are made to feel like one of the family. The hotel has character, as have the family who run it. The boss, Christain, is a delight and he will help make your stay in this lovely resort rewarding with advice on where to eat and stay etc.
He has strong views on everything and if you engage with him you will get a great, if eccentric, insight into ordinary French people, by the way his English is excellent.
It's facilities are basic but it has a lovely bar, great breakfast and very good wifi.
It is just a few yards from the train station and the lovely long beach is a very short walk away. This is a compact town and you don't need a car. Ignore the other reviews, take a chance on Hotel Victoria, we did and were delighted we did - it was one of the highlights of our stay in France.
