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.

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!

i stayed here for a night in September. The host/manager, was helpful and pleasant. The room, a comfort superior, was nicely fitted out, with an excellent bathroom. Sleep quality was fine. The hotel is only 50 metres from the waterfront, which is lovely. If you want to park on street, it is limited. The hotel has good facilities, and a... More

Stayed for three nights on the way to the Cognac area. The (standard) room was excellent, overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast was also very good - choice and quality of food - and eating it sitting in the courtyard was perfect. The hotel is modern (although the building is old), very clean and the staff were delightful. Our French is not... More

Lovely hotel 50 yards from the beach front and set in a small town. Rooms are set round a sunny courtyard. We had 2 chambres confort which were immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, light and airy and the bathrooms were new with power showers. Very quiet at night. There is a garage to park, but parking on the street nearby was... More
