We booked 4 nights on booking.com (€760!) and had to cancel 24 hours before the first night.

We called the owner to explain why we had to cancel and kindly asked for a low cancellation fee, ready to pay for the first night but not for all.

She said: “I will give you only 40% b

Thankfully we were not staying at the hotel so can only comment on the meal we purchased there. Ordered a lunch for five people, including a meat platter for €14 which consisted of 8 salami slices (being generous with the terminology here, thin end scraps is more accurate), a cur

We had one of our best stays ever at Hotel Le Vieux Greement, a boutique hotel in La Couard-sur-Mer. The staff were friendly, courteous, and very helpful. We stayed for a week, and our comfortable room was kept immaculate from day to day. The hotel has a charming courtyard--a de

I attempted to make a booking at this hotel for the last night of our stay in Ile de Re. Initially I tried to book online but the form was only in French. I then called & spoke to a member of staff with great difficulty communicating. The essence of the conversation being that th

Response from Claire-et-Laurent, Propriétaire at Le Vieux Greement
Responded Sep 17, 2016
Bonjour, First I would like to apologize for all the mistake I will make in this answer. I am not surprise that after threaten us to put a very bad comment on tripadvisor your finely make it. I will only make the truth come out. For the sofa, it was a pillow that have a task, and one's you let us know, we take it back and give you a clean one, the chambermaid did not see the task and we already apologize for it. In the bathroom there is one toilet paper just close to the WC, and the rest is in a small stand front of it, you just have to open the little door to see, maybe it was to hard for you, but we prefer put inside instead of on the toilet, it's much more aesthetic. For the breakfast at 12€ for 1 person, you got, two croissant, one chocolatine (chocolate bread), and a third of a baguette, all made by the backer of the village and deliver every morning. And with this you got hot drink, compote, yogourt and an orange juice. For your check in, unfortunately the room was not ready early, but it was ready at 13h00, because when you did arrive in the morning, at 10am, the guest was still inside the suite (they have until 11h30am to leave, like every guest), and I ask my chambermaid to do this suite first, directly after the check-out, so they did, but you was not here to see, because you cameback a few minutes before 15h (not my fault). For your record our etablissement as hours for the breakfast for 8am to 11am, like for the bar for 8am to 10h30pm, and they are the same for every guest, but if asked before we always manage to open earlier, that how we do with all the other guest who have the necessity to have breakfast earlier. So if there is a next time, just ask kindly one day before, and we will do as you need. I also want to let you know, that it's not by threaten us to leave a very bad comment if we don't to as you want, that you begins a negotiation. You spend only 2 nights in our Hotel, for me it's not a few. I am very sorry to see that tripadvisor can be, in this case, a threat. I am very sorry for you to use it like that. Thank's for your visit in our Hotel. Regad's Laurent.B

"Rooms overlooking the courtyard are a little dark and the two TINY beds upstairs in room 21 are rock hard."
