Nice hotel friendly and helpful staff. Great location close to beach, town and restaurants. Nice clean rooms. Our toilet was a little small but OK but some of the rooms had bigger toilets. Nice reception area. You can get breakfast in a nice breakfast area. Nice coffee available in reception. Room service is available but we did not use it.

We stayed here for just one night & wished we had more time to enjoy the hotel & the beautiful seaside town. The receptionist & others we had reason to deal with in the hotel could not have been more helpful. We only had street parking but we managed to get space right outside the hotel. The rooms were spacious...

First you meet friendly staff who will show you to your room. You can choose a small, large, backdoor, sea side, low or high floor one. Each of it nicely decorated with its own unique style. If you get a high floor sea side room you will enjoy a scenic view on the ocean, the harbour, the beach opposite the...

Day five of our bike tour and we took the ferry over the water to reach Royan. The hotel is immediately visible from the ferry which is great. Bit tricky storing the bikes as they had to be carried down a winding stone stairway, tricky in bike shoes but at least they were secure. Rooms were small but comfortable and...

The rooms are set of average. We had a more expensive room with a view of the sea. There is no air conditioning so we opened the sliding door for ventilation. Since it was cool with a breeze this was not a problem even though there was some street noise. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is adequate.

Good location and value for money. The hotel was easy to find and is near the harbour, so a selection of cafes and restaurants are within less than a five minute walk. There is also a nice relatively small beach opposite the hotel.

Stayed here overnight En-route from Cherbourg to Villena Spain. About 30mins from Motorway. Right on the seafront. Comfortable beds, had to pay extra for room with bath, but upgraded as hotel was quiet in March, so "Thank You". Parking on road right outside. But public car park just up from hotel. Hotel itself has no parking facilities. Breakfast was basic,...

Firstly its is well positioned for access to the marina, shops and restaurants. A short walk from the hotel gets you everywhere you need to go. There was plenty of street parking outside of the hotel, all of which was free when we went. Would definitely look for a sea view room and a room above the 5th floor gives...

we stopped for 2 nights and we went for a high floor room.This proved to be an advantage as you could see over the tall buildings opposite.The ferry coming and going and the town and countryside all fascinating. The breakfast was very good and the room was unusual with the african themed decor but all adds to staying in hotels...
