Fantastic location right on the waterfront, that is, if you have a room not at the hotel itself. We had the choice ... and it was great! Clean room, fantastic view. Staff is VERY friendly and the breakfast is good

We were greeted warmly and shown to a table out on the terrace, which was ideal on such a lovely warm day. We were given an amuse-bouche after ordering, of a gazpacho with sweet peppers, which was delightful. For 'entrée' we ordered poached egg with truffle cream sauce, terrine of foie gras as well as millifeuille of salmon. For 'plat'... More

We received 5 Star service from the staff of the L'Absinthe Hotel. They were extremely accommodating, helpful and friendly. We stayed in a Superior room one night and then a suite the second night. Both were very nice and spacious with great views of the harbor. We enjoyed their breakfasts and the lounge area.

Stayed one night here on the way home from our holiday. Pre booked a twin (confirmed) but they gave us a double. Small room nicely furnished. Good breakfast. Worth paying the additional cost to park your car in their private covered car park. it's much cheaper and safer than parking oin the municipal car park nearby

We stayed here for three nights in one of the annex rooms. Lovely view over waterway and conveniently located right next to the beautiful harbour. Bedroom was a good size and bathroom excellent - nice walk in shower and even a jacuzzi bath. Well appointed, apart from lack of tea/coffee making facilities or mini bar/fridge. Everything else excellent and would... More

L'absinthe is ideally located to walk into town or stroll by the harbour. I didn't know about the car park that you can access but there is a large car park opposite that costs €22 for 24 hours. The hotel seems to be spread across several buildings so you don't feel part of a single hotel with a heart such... More

This is a wonderful place to spend a night. The hotel has a great location. It is an older hotel that has been spiffed up and made to look a lot newer than it is.....the charm is nice and the baths are a good size. The room was small but for one night it was fine. We loved being in... More

L'Absinthe is in a great location, easily walkable to the harbor and shops and dining. The rooms are beautifully decorated with exposed beams, antique furnishings and very nice linens, and both the rooms and the bathrooms are very large and comfortable. The hotel does have a paid parking area, but it's away from the hotel and since we were only... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our short stay at L'Absinthe. We had a beautiful and very spacious room in the annexed section of the property, with several windows that overlooked the harbor. A lot of character in the room decor. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom very large. It is a brief stroll to the inner harbor and... More
