“Pleasant and friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We stayed here for a couple of days at the beginning of August and it was a welcoming and clean hotel. The spare bed in the room for our little daughter was very comfortable. The staff in particular were very helpful with maps, parking advice, recommendations for places to eat etc. However, I must say that the pictures on the hotel website certainly made it look more spectacular than it actually is! Also, there seems to be a problem with water pressure at certain times of the day due to ongoing works in the area (although to be fair, this may well affect other hotels). The dining room looked a bit drab and smelt slightly stale, so we ate out and did not eat breakfast there as it is not included in the price

This was probably once a lovely hotel but over the years it has been rather unsympathetically updated, so the small rooms are out of keeping with the general feel of the place.

The hotel is a level building with a fine staircase - but the rooms are small, functional and cheap furnished. A real pity - with some love and attention this could be a very nice grand old hotel. As it is, it is an acceptable stop-over.

We stayed here for a week late June 2010. Its a lovely older hotel with much character. Unable to enter the town when we arrived as the last weekend in June is given over to their annual 'fete'. Partying and firework display on Saturday, huge procession on the Sunday - Venice themed - and the barriers were removed as soon as it was over. Parking no problem but Chatelaillon has a confusion of narrow, one-way streets - which can be frustrating. Our room had been recently refurbished and was spotless (we were refused admission by the cleaner one day until she'd finished cleaning and vacuuming it). Excellent double wardrobe. Small but more than adequate shower room/ toilet. The central staircase in the hotel is old, with a wearing carpet, but in its day must have been splendid. Lots of old photos in dining room show the hotel's history. Breakfast we thought was expensive but compared well to local bars ... lots of choice. Evening meal was nicely presented by well-trained, courteous staff and was reasonably priced. Eat elsewhere if you like - good choice of places to eat. We liked the 'Suzette' creperie (typically French laid-back atmosphere ... they do not rush you) and Le Milano Italian restaurant nearby - which was always very busy. South West France is a touch expensive with the current poor exchange rate (GBP-Euro), but the weather is good and there are lots of things to do - La Rochelle and Ile d'Oleron to name but two. The only minus points were a lack of ventilation in the bathroom ... a bit smelly at times, and building extension work above the dining room, making for a noisy breakfast.

Friendly staff and well located near to the beach. No car park so had to find a spot in the street. Room barely big enough for the double bed and badly in need of redecoration/refurbishment. Shower in need of repair and only just worked. Restaurant seemed expensive so we ate elsewhere.

Very tired looking hotel, really needs updating, room cleanliness poor. After 8 hours of travelling through France on the way to Spain, there was no water pressure due to an ongoing problem and the standard room that we stayed in was very small indeed. Super little location however.

Booked to stay in a family room with 2 small children as going to a friends wedding nearby. Essential to book in advance as this resort in France is packed in the summer (very close to La Rochelle). Email contact with the hotel ok, but didnt answer some questions about car parking - which by the way is a nightmare! Especially on market days or bank holidays (both of which coincincided with our arrival).
On the positive the hotel is in a great position, near the market place and only a street away from the great big sandy beach.
The family room was at the back of this 1920's hotel, up and down corridors and stairs - very tricky with a pushchair and numerous cases and no help was offered.
Room was a bit shabby, although beds comfy and clean and bathroom huge. Shower was awful - no pressure at all, meant zero water.
Other friends also staying here had a lovely room, smaller but recently decorated to very high standard - hope they do the same for the rest of the hotel.
Do not take breakfast - 8 euros for a stingy croissant and some stale bread! Head to the nearest boulongerie instead.

  • Liked — Beautiful building, public bar and restaurant great, location perfect
  • Disliked — Poor quality of family room compared with rest of hotel
