Stunning location on the seafront midway between St Pailais sur mer and La Palmyre. Our room (142) had wall to wall sea views on 2 sides. The décor is dated but beautifully French and not 'the norm' you get in most hotels. The restaurant wasn't busy an food was good. Will be going back next year

Hotel building is very nice in classical style of 19-th century but rooms are smelling by tabacco and by mould... If you want to have dinner in hotel then you need to book table in advance. But hotel has nice view to Atlantic ocean and there is very interesting walk way to nearest beach. So, it is good hotel to... More

The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, especially with our poor French. The rooms are on the small side but are fair value for the money. Lovely vista with the sea breeze from the ocean view room - a must for this location. Although there is a shower head, it must really only be a bath as there is... More

Nice room overlooking sea, disappointed with small balcony where no room to sit and saw other rooms empty. Only ate in restaurant two nights as only two couples there and that included us. Breakfast Sunday good but poor on other days as empty, it all looked very stale except the fruit. We would return as loved the 70 style and... More

We booked into the hotel for two nights choosing a double room with balcony facing the sea. Spectacular ! The view, the smell of the sea! The room was clean, well furnished in a style befitting the style of the hotel. Elegant but un pretentious .breakfast just amazing. Run by a family and the ambiance shows this. I visited years...

Having read some of the previous comments were were a little concerned about staying here, but there was no need to worry. Without being asked the receptionist, Renauld, picked up my wife's case and carried it into the hotel. He was pleasant, welcoming and friendly and, when my fractured French was exhausted, he cheerfully switched to English. He showed us... More

We drove 500 kms and arrived at 5.00 to be told the restaurant was fully booked by the young woman at the desk. - we were surprised and disappointed but we left to walk the 15 minute cliff path to the town that she suggested. This turned out to be a 40 minute walk and we got very lost. When... More

I have to say that we love this hotel and have been visiting for a number of years to celebrate special occassions. Its setting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean is magnificent. The building itself is an impressive 'chateau like' monument. However, I regret to say that it is all becoming a bit dated and is in need of some redecoration and... More

Travelling with a friend, I stayed at the Primavera in order to visit a music festival which was taking place on the beach no more than 200 yards away. I was happy to pay the pretty steep €130 per night in order to have the convenience of being so close by - plus the hotel has plenty of free parking.... More
