We had the set lunch on a busy Sunday and we're delighted with the quality and value of the food... The fish was wonderfully fresh - the most important thing. It was let down rather by the inexpert service. Will try another next time...

The bus to La Rochelle decided not to turn up on Sunday evening and it looked like we might be stuck on Ile de Ré! We went into the hotel and the receptionist was incredibly helpful - looked up the bus timetables, walked across the road to check if there were any signs on the bus-stop, offered us the number...

This is an attractive harbour front restaurant and the staff are pleasant. It is easy to submit to the charms of the place. Unfortunately, the food is expensive and dire........a dubious sole for my wife as it was obviously not fresh and was rather unpleasant, and a truly dreadful grilled tuna for myself which was totally dry and one of...

Stayed for two nights, plus points: very reasonable prices for location, amazing right on the harbour with lots of cheap parking nearby. Decent selection of bars and restaurants nearby. New lift system. Nice reception area. Good double glazing Minus points:our room was quite small and, as it was at the front, really quite noisy of an evening with the windows... More

We checked into this hotel following a disaster with our Airbnb booking. The receptionist was very helpful and showed us different rooms to choose from. The hotel is newly renovated, the room was basic but large and the bathroom clean. The hotel is in an excellent position next to the port in La Flotte although the traffic could be a... More

We spent ten days in La Flotte staying at Le Francais. The hotel is in a perfect position right on the quay side and some of the rooms have great views over the port. We had no problem with noise at night although the hotel is right in the centre. The hotel is simple furnished and spotlessly clean. The staff... More

The hotel is about 30 paces from the port. We stayed here recently. Although our room was quite small, the bed was a good size and comfy enough. My wife quickly observed that both us and our luggage could fit in the lift, not used too that in France! Breakfast was quite small, but just enough to get you going.... More

We arrived in the sunny early evening and were completely entranced by La Flotte and this hotel, sited right on the quay. The rooms were spotless and appropriately decorated for the seaside location. There is a spacious lift - quite unusual in France! - and the reception area is large and welcoming. Breakfast, taken sitting on the quayside, was very... More

This hotel was perfect. Easy to find, right by the port and restaurants and parking free just down the road. The rooms have had a make over and are simply furnished. The staff were friendly. The cafe's breakfast could have been better. The croissant and bread were not fresh and the juice concentrated.
