Would not give this hotel a great rating but it is ok. Not near the train station so we had to pay 15 euros for a taxi. The room is small but we got a nice view of the water. Breakfast is ok. But the biggest downside was the noise - the walls must be paper thin as we could hear everything on all sides and downstairs was having a party on the balcony until I had to ask them to stop.

Stayed: April 2014, traveled with family

So this hotels standards are a mere 2 or 3 stars, but the location and views are 5 stars! You could love this place for the location, or you could hate it as a hotel itself, it is really a judgement call for you, I will try to give you my honest opinion:
Pros: immaculately clean, spacious enough, giant balcony with gorgeous views of the sea. Right on the rivière, easy access to everything, parking, food, boats. Adequate breakfast. A decent gym, although why would you use the gym when you can jog in those breath taking views. There is a pool, outside, it is April, and still too cold for that. Location, location, location! Free WiFi

Cons:
Staff: front desk could be a bit friendlier, the man in the front seemed to bark at us, and the never look up to greet or say hello!
Rooms: as a 4 star there are some bits lacking; no shampoo or conditioner or shower caps, just soap in the bathrooms, which they did not replenish in the morning. Tacky plastic disposable cups, which were also no replenished this morning, I did pay full price for 2 nights! If you like your morning tea or coffee, sorry no electric water heater, or teas or coffee, or complimentary water ( nowadays even the cheap hotels afford you that luxury)

This hotel has the potential to be a fabulous 4 star hotel, it just lacks management!

This hotel has great views of the water, but I found the room to be lacking for the price that we paid. The beautiful views should be accompanied by rooms with a more luxurious feel. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay here.
