“Great views”
Reviewed January 1, 2009

L'Hotel is in a fantastic location with sea front views from every room, the room itself is large with full cooking facilities and a balcony overlooking the sea front, the decor is looking a bit tired now and could do with a makeover but the views more than compensate.
The hotel resteraunt does superb food and is reasonably priced, even more so if combined with room deal. location is ony 200 metres from Black Cat dolphin cruises etc.
In photo rooms top floor resteraunt below, road is paved one way and very quiet

Reviewed March 25, 2007

Akaroa spreads itself round the edge of the peninsula and as a result is a little spread out, especially if you are travelling with young children with little legs! L'Hotel is located right in the centre of the village within yards of several eating places, and directly overlooking the waterfront and the main pier. The restaurant on the ground floor does great pizzas. The units / rooms are located above, with balconies that look out over the water (see photos). The units have basic self catering facilities and were in reasonable condition. Nice friendly staff on arrival, but the manager was very keen to make sure we left on time (by 10:00) the following morning as the cleaners were standing by to get into the room. Overall a good place, in probably the best location in the village for a cheap-ish tourist hotel. Within easy reach of Christchurch, route is straightforward and takes about 80 - 90 minutes. Recommended.

  • Liked — Location.
  • Disliked — Pressure to get out by 10:00 (although to be fair we knew this was the checkout time before we got there).
