My entire experience with this Hotel was superb from the get-go. I booked via online while travelling - they were very prompt in responding, provided detailed information, offered options (the room I was seeking to book was not available), and simply came across as being very warm and hospitable. I felt that I was going to receive a warm welcome, as if I were a friend coming over for a visit. Closer to the date of my arrival, I asked if they could arrange for a cab to pick us up from the port where our ship would be docking - again, no problem and they made sure to get a cab large enough to accommodate 3 passengers with tons of luggage (as opposed to making us take 2 cabs). Upon arrival, our cab was there on time even though we had been warned that it might be late given that there were only a few cabs in town and a fair number of passengers were disembarking in St. Pierre. The cab driver helped us with our heavy luggage with good humour. When we reached the hotel, we were greeted most hospitably. The woman at reception helped us lug our very heavy suitcases to our rooms - this was above and beyond the call of duty. She then provided us with every possible piece of info we could ever have asked or needed to know about St. Pierre. She also noted that the restaurant where we had made reservations (also online) had phoned the hotel to let us know that we were confirmed. Our rooms were super clean, very comfortable, beautifully appointed. The bathrooms especially are very modern - the showers are super great. And the breakfast (which is included in the price) is to die for - it's buffet style with many choices - all healthy and wholesome. Unfortunately, we were rushing off to catch an early morning flight and couldn't take the time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast. The size of their breakfast would have me going well until lunch. I highly recommend this hotel to any visitors to St. Pierre. While it is not right downtown, it is but a 10 minute walk at most from the centre. St. Pierre is quite tiny to begin with and everything seems to be within a 10 minute walking distance (except for the cemetery).
I recommend this place highly and would definitely stay there on my next visit.
