“Good location, excellent food”
Reviewed January 5, 2008

We stayed here during June 08 for one night, we will be going back as we felt the food was excellent and the accomodation was comfortable. The location is great for cycling as this is a really cycle friendly town.

Reviewed October 15, 2007

This hotel was built I would guess in the late 1970s or early 1980s. It has about 30 rooms and is built in a Ushape around the pool. The style is whitewashed walls with a large open restaurant with wood beams and plenty of light. The style is let down a little by metal framed windows.

It is situated about 5-10 minutes walk from the shops and restaurants of Noirmoutier en l'Ile in a residential area. It is blissfully quiet being on a dead end road.

We had booked a marine room. It was really quite small having a bed, bulit in wardrobe, drawer units, TV and fridge. The WC was in a very small room and the bathroom was very cosy but with room for a bath with shower fittings over and a basin. There was a patio door leading out to the garden. It had all you could want but not much space. And the standard rooms are meant to be even smaller. The bed was wide enough but not long enough for me (I'm 6 foot tall) and a little uncomfortable.

There was plenty of hot water in the morning but the water was not hot enough for a bath in the evening - and barely hot enough for a shower.

Most if not all of our fellow guests were French - we may have been the only English people there. I'm not sure how many staff speak English but this wasn't a big issue for us.

The restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. The food was interesting and very well cooked. Fish was very evident and the menu was not stuck in the sort of time warp you can find in many French country hotels. There were 3 set menus (prices ranged from E27 to E47). The wine list was short and a bit dull with mainly uninteresting local wines. Service was on the slow side.

Breakfast was a buffet (not included in the room price as noted in the previous review) with fruit salads, yoghurts, pastries, bread, boiled eggs, juice, coffee etc. Pretty good.

Reading back over this review it sounds a bit negative. Actually we very much enjoyed our stay and it was excellent value for money. Our room was E119 including tax out of season. I'm a great believer that you get what you pay for. We did not expect perfection and didn't get it. What I'm hoping to do with this review is paint a realistic picture.

Rating: 3.5 stars.
