I stayed for 4 nights at Les Rocquettes hotel with my boyfriend at the end of June 2012. My initial impression of the hotel was positive. The outside building looked impressive and the reception and foyer areas were decorated to a high standard with furniture to match. The receptionist was friendly and helpful and offered to store our bags while our room was being cleaned as we arrived two hours earlier than check in time.
However my initial positive impression soon turned to disappointment when entering the bedroom. Having booked a Superior Class A Double room, I presumed the room would be as the photograph on the booking website - modern in decoration with cream painted walls, blue couch and modern bathroom. Clearly this was not the case! Whilst the room and bathroom was large in size with a balcony I was shocked at the dated decor and dark wooded furnishings and the bed was tiny for a double. The bathroom fittings were rusting, in particular the soap holder over the bath and curtain rail.
The breakfast was horrible - my bacon over cooked, the sausages tasted like cheap supermarket meat and the hash brown was greasy. I ordered cereal and poached eggs for the rest of the week. I am surprised by the breakfast as we ate dinner in the restaurant on our first evening and I was impressed by the delicious tasting meal.
The hotel swimming pool and Jacuzzi were fantastic and the changing facilities were clean and modern.
The hotel website states excellent location and walking distance into town, yes you can walk into town which takes approximately 15 minutes to town and 20 minutes return due to the hills. I was told by reception the walk would take 10 minutes which is not true. However buses do stop outside the hotel which is useful.
To be honest I would not book Les Rocquettes hotel again. The bedroom and the breakfasts simply did not live up to 3* expectations.
