Lovely breakfast, lovely city. The room was astonishing. And for such price II couldn't ask for better. I'm looking forward to visit the place again, even in Winter, maybe just to re-use the spa, or the massage facility = )

We only stayed two nights at the Grand Hotel des Bains but it was more than enough to rate this hotel as excellent. The hotel and the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. Fantastic and relaxing spa! The staff is very friendly and we really enjoyed our time in Fouras. We definitely recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed the casual atmosphere of this mini-hotel. The ocean is a 1/2 block away. We arrived on a day when there was a car rally going on in town so we opted to use the hotel garage since there was no parking available on the street. The shopping district begins just around the corner from the hotel. The... More

This is a family-run hotel situated a block away from the biggest of the three beaches in Fouras (not on the beach, as advertised on some websites). We did not ask for private parking as there was plenty of space in a free parking lot by the seaside fortress. The young people at the reception were very kind and helpful... More

The hotel maybe slightly miss named as the Grand, but all the same its a pleasant hotel clean and quaint . The location and the town are not to be missed. But the lack of a restaurant and the hotel bar closed by 9.00 detract from overall experience.

Six nights at the same hotel is a lot. For the first time, I was in a family event. The owners were very attentive. I stayed near to the front desk as my my father was with mobility problems. The hotel had a wheelchair, in which was very helpful. The garden on the middle is very nice. I missed an... More

Stayed there for one night in July of 2016 with family on the way south. Very nice and quiet hotel with good breakfast and friendly attentive service. We liked the pool and sauna a lot. Fouras was also a big surprise. Such a lovely place with small cobbled streets, food market and nice little cafes and restaurants and a market... More

Splendid hotel in the quaint little town of Fouras. Gilles & Marie (and team) do everything to make you feel most welcome. Chic simply furnished rooms with very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean everywhere, great breakfast & lovely pool. What more could you want. Would love to return one day on our travels.

Stayed here one night, in and out, very efficient with locked garage parking. Well located near the Fort on the river. Scene of the Battle of the Basque Roads 1809. Infinity Pool, Sauna and Steam Room all lovely, rooms clean and very French. Efficient check in and out. Decent restaurants nearby.

We only stayed one night at the beginning of September on our way to the Auvergne. Would have happily stayed longer. The room was especially nice considering how reasonable the price was. The guy on the desk was very helpful and friendly and the bed was super comfortable. If we ever pass this way again would definitely go back!
