My wife and I had a pleasant 2-night stay. The hotel I s right in the centre of the city, but is not at all noisy. It is about 3 minutes from the market, with a great selection of bars and restaurants. It's also 3 minutes from the cathedral and the Musée des Beaux Arts. And the staff are friendly... More

Great car park, lovely staff and fantastic location other than that not worth the money, keep on looking. Tired and in need of investment to deserve 4 stars then they can work on the 5th, no air con, tired smelly room, paint work resembles my crows feet of 48 years. Disappointed and very glad it was a one night stop... More

First of all, the hotel is in a great location and the main building is lovely as are the staff. We stayed in a deluxe suit which was pretty roomy and well appointed although the carpets were in dire need of a clean or being replaced. On our first day the weather was nice so we thought we'd have a... More

Hotel is located centrally, 5 minutes from the bus depot (took the bus from the airport), a short stroll to the old town and the scenic harbour. We had an upgrade to a Deluxe suite which was a nice surprise. The room was was cleaned twice daily, with fluffy towels however it could have done with slightly brighter lighting. The... More

Whilst travelling to Spain by car we went to that lovely town of La Rochelle and booked into the Hotel which had five stars. Contrary to their brochure the WiFi never worked properly there was no air conditioning in my classic room and there was no workable shower with the bidet tap always falling off. The area around the pool... More

We stayed here as a family (6 adults and a 2 year old grandchild). The hotel is good as a base for visiting the town and the area. The hotel offers evening dining, seemingly little used, as there are many restaurants in the nearby market area. It's a modest walk into town. The hotel has a heated swimming pool which... More

Not really a 5 star hotel - my room felt like it could do with some redecoration; new carpet, walls re-painting, more modern furniture. My room didn't even have a bin (not even in the bathroom) which I found odd. The bathroom was very big but just a handheld shower in the bath with no curtain or screen which meant... More

This hotel claims to be a high end property, claim to be 5 star. Not at all. Maybe a three star. It is in a state of decline, and is not well maintained. We paid extra for a nicer, larger room, which was a mistake. I would not recommend this hotel or stay here again. The front desk staff was... More
