Myself and my wife stayed here form na short holiday in the summer. We were on a cycling trip.
We booked for bed and breakfast.
The hotel is in an excellent position only 5 minutes walk from the town centre. Hiowever, it was hard to find being on the edge of the park and down a narrow street that you may not believe goes anywhere!
The reception staff were really friendly and helpful. they spoke good English. They were able to give us good information on restaurants in the locality, a map of the town and were very happy to store our bikes in a down-stairs conference room.
The hotel room was really good. Extremely clean and tidy. Really comfortable bed. A good size.
Breakfast was very good. The bits we British like (eg bacon etc) were not very nice at all but that should not detract from the good variety and quality of the yogurts, bread, croissants, cold meat and cheese etc. They also have an excellent coffee machine. Again the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The evening meals at the hotel were very expensive and this was disappointing as we would have eaten there had it been more reasonable as it did look nice. However, La Rochelle has a wide variety of restaurants to suit all tastes and it is literally only 5 minutes walk to the town centre.
They ahve an outdoor pool but not usable at the time of year we went. Looked a decent size and easily accessible from the restaurant bar
We were on a cycling holiday and the hotel is excellently situated for that with it being around 10 minutes cycle from the bridge to Isle de Rae, which is well worth the trip.
Overall a really enjoyable trip.
