“Close to airport!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

La Roussette is clean, and right on the main road, and not far from the airport. The swimming pool is tiny. You can arrange transport provided by the inn, which was very reliable. If you stay here, you may want to visit Anse Royale for a good, close beach. In general, the La Roussette offers average service. We had fish and chips for lunch, and it was our worst dining experience for the whole trip: limp fries and really chewy over cooked fish. It might be better, if you have dinner at one of the restaurants at Anse Royale.

We stayed at La Roussette for our final night in the Seychelles. We wanted something near the airport as we had an early departure. It was more expensive than the self catering bungalow we had rented earlier in our trip and no where near as nice. I would give it a maximum of 2 stars. The room is very basic and quite dated - harsh lighting, an old bedspread, ancient furnishings, open shower in the bath. We were glad we only needed to stay one night as the place is certainly over-priced and nothing special.

We spent two nights before our sailing trip around the archipelago at La Roussette and one night after. For our purpose, we couldn't have chosen better.
Rooms are in bungalows around two small courtyards filled with beautiful tropical greenery, with flowers blossoming, birds singing, Mary the Cat overseeing her territory, and occasionally the neighbour's dog visiting. One courtyard features a miniature swimming pool - just to cool down; for long-distance swimming, take a one-minute walk to the ocean, there is a beautiful beach shaded by coconut palms across the road. The rooms are spacious and cheerful. The decor of the rooms and of other spaces is blissfully simple and very tasteful. The whole place was immaculately clean when we stayed there. Food was very good (we visited off-season, so only had a set menu, but we were very satisfied.) There are a few small shops with all necessities within a short walking distance. Buses to Victoria stop nearby; the airport is a few minutes away by taxi.
The best thing about the place are the people - cheerful, friendly and helpful staff who made our visit a real pleasure.
Not Recommended For: conceited snobs.
Highly Recommendeed For: anyone looking for a friendly and pleasant place to stay.

We have been on Seychelles already several times with my family.
I truly consider them as the most beautiful tropical islands in the world.

Amongst our previous visits we have been staying several times at Hotel La Roussette, which I think is one of the best Guest houses on Mahe island.
The hotel has convenient location (close to Mahe international airport) as well as cozy and good-value-for-money accommodation.

It is just a step away of the ocean and you may rent small car at the reception.

My wife and I visited Seychelles last year and enjoyed Mahe Island very much. During the two weeks holiday, we stayed at Hotel La Roussette not far from the international Airport. We were very satisfied with the service provided and fascinating Creole dishes in the evening. We visited various sites on Mahe Island and also visited the neighbouring islands Praslin and La Dique. This guest house is simply unique; it’s clean, central and offers great value for money. It even has its own car hire. We are planning to visit Seychelles again beginning of next year to visit other outer islands together with our 3 children. We will definitely stay at Hotel La Roussette again.

Good choice if traveler needs to be close to the airport. 6 minutes away.
Big room with AC, big bed, and good lights. The rooms around the small swimming pool are very quiet.
Good staff. They do a set dinner which was good. The breakfast is fairly poor (like most hotels we stayed in).
If you need to get on an early morning flight, this hotel is very suitable, as the taxi will take only 6 minutes to reach the airport.

  • Liked — close to airport
  • Disliked — not the best holiday hotel
