Location wise, you couldn't ask for better. Situated along the waterfront above a number of restaurants to choose from. Powerful shower, lovely view, though you need to request a room high up to see above the trees. This does mean that you will have more stairs to carry your bags up, but it's worth it. Parking nearby is easy to... More

We spent two nights and found a wonderfully warm proprietaire who gave us great advice for our travels. We loved the location, looking out on the old port. Breakfast was better for the price than we usually have in France. The hotel could use a little refresh and is rough on aging knees, without elevator. But the location, view and... More

A last minute booking late September we got a small but lovely room with sea/harbour views looking out over the floodlit towers. Very convenient to the town centre, but we had to park our car on the other side of town, but only a 10 minute walk away. Woken up by the sound of the recycling bins being moved at... More

The hotel is perfectly positioned on the waterfront in the heart of La Rochelle. We had a superb view of the harbour from our room. There were constant sounds of entertainers, diners etc below our window, but the shutters completely blocked out all noise when closed. The lady at reception was ever so friendly and helpful. The hotel is a... More

this has to be in the best location. We had a quiet room at the back of the hotel. Very friendly staff, clean room. Small but effective shower. Typical French breakfast and close to lots of great restaurants. Port area was fun and near Aquarium. Take a yellow boat to the beach at La Minims for only 3 or 4... More

We stayed here for four nights as a treat for our 25th wedding anniversary and we loved every minute of it. No fancy frills or bathroom full of useless products, just a really comfortable room with a great view of the harbour, and the most friendly and helpful staff you could wish for. Simple but filling breakfast served with a... More

We were pleasantly surprised that the hotel was so close to the harbor and restaurants. Our room was quite spacious compared to many European hotels, and it had a lively decor. We found parking nearby, and it was easy to walk around the town and harbor area. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This small hotel was located just right in the harbour and the lively street aside. The standard was according to promise so no surprises. We upgraded to harbour view which was a great choice. The friendly staff Helped us and guided us to 3 great restaurants aming hundreds and we were so Happy about that. Genuin service and very helpful.
