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... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More

Small hotel right across the road from the beach. 1 minute walk to marina and restaurants with beach tarases. A gentlemen at reception was extremely nice and helpful with all informations we needed. Room was a bit dated but furnished with stile. Bathroom and bedroom was very clean and I would totaly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in Roatn for one night, this was just as a stopover not a holiday period stay. Nevertheless, we found it clean and about right for the 3 star rating and frankly clean is the number one thing for me. It's situated very near a beach and a stones throw from the restaurants along the sea front. We had... More

The rooms at this hotel are on the small side but they are clean. The same applies to the bathrooms. There are sea view rooms and others, facing to the back. We where there in foggy winter time, so we didn't bother about the views, but I'm not so sure if it worth the extra money at other times of... More

We stayed in this hotel while on the cycling holiday and the hotel staff were more than accommodating. We dropped our bags there earlier in the day, and when we checked in later found that they had been put in our room (rather than having to retrieve them from a baggage store someplace). They managed to get our bicycles down... More
