Great hotel on the waterfront, close to many local visitor sites. Good selection of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. High standards of service and food. Would recommend this hotel without any hesitation.

Positive The location is very good, short walk to the town and harbour. But is a little bit dark at night but overall was safe. Had a lovely clean room. Was a little on the small side but overall was fine. We had the biggest TV ive ever seen in a room so good to watch the matches in the... More

Nicely situated hotel for the Marina and aquarium. Getting a place in car park was difficult as full. Welcome was professional but a bit impersonal. Room was adequate, with all usual amenities, but not the most spacious. The food in the restaurant and at breakfast was excellent.

The hotel is in a fantastic position, however the rooms are very small, no view of water despite the prime location. Breakfast was very good and the view from the dining area is lovely. Didn't get our welcome drinks as a gold member should and had to request to change rooms as the air conditioning engines were so noisy. Disappointing... More

Located in the Vieux Port Sud and easy walking into the old city this is a good 4 star hotel with good on site parking. This is a modern hotel, with good rooms and facilities. Excellent in room wifi. The room was air-conditioned but you can open the window. Rooms facing onto the Vieux Port are recommended.

Having been to La Rochelle on previous occasions we knew roughly the location of the hotels which should have been an advantage. We had booked mini suite at a favoured Yachtsman Hotel but due to change of date we had to change our booking and they could not accommodate us for the 3 nights stay in the town. As we... More

Free wifi, comfy beds, attentive staff. Overall a great experience and would definitely use the hotel again. In a great location, next door to the aquarium, right near all the bars and restaurants.

The hotel was a great location but i hated the layout of the rooms. Small and to get to the window was a squeeze next to the desk. We asked for a sea view which was clearly ignored and we got a terrible view round the back. We couldn't find the toilet at first - it is located in what... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. Although the staff were all very friendly and the breakfast, which was included in our rate, was plentiful it's difficult to give more than an average rating.
