“Tiny room especially bathroom”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

We may have been unlucky to have been given the smallest room in the hotel ..... We are not large people but this would be the smallest shower cubicle we have come across and beware of shin bruises from the edge of the bed as the room is also really small. Good location, nice lounge and enjoyed the restaurant.

Stayed July 2012, traveled as a couple

A small friendly hotel on the tiny harbour of Rivedoux. Drop-dead gorgeous receptionist extremely helpful, pool clean and comfortably heated, restaurant bright and pleasant, with a sheltered open-air annex across the road on the harbour wall.

On the other hand, the rooms are tiny, with abrasive wall finishes that get you when you try to pass the beds, which are comfortable but terribly low. Our 'balcony' was big enough for one small chair, but not my knees, unless I sat sideways.

Food was generally excellent, particularly the squid in cognac and cream sauce, which ranks among my favourite meals of all time. On the other hand, I got a steak which was so tough I literally could not eat it. Regrets were expressed by the attentive staff, but no alternative was offered, nor was the bill reduced.

We had to cut our stay short by one day, and informed the receptionist three days in advance. She, not the vision of the first day but a lemon-taster with poor people skills, tried to insist that we pay for the full week originally booked.

No.

After not being able to find accommodation in La Rochelle, we took the gamble on this little hotel on the Island just off La Rochelle. We hit the jackpot!!! the hotel has just been renovated, it is both charming and the location you could not ask for a better position. Only 20 mins into the old city of La Rochelle. Our surprise was the island, there was so much to explore. The staff of the hotel were fantastic, will to help with any question you may have. The hotel has recently been renovated, it is gorgeous, yes the rooms maybe small but you are only there to sleep there is too much to do not only around the island but at the hotel as well. The attached restaurant is pleasant, though the cost of breakfast at 12 euros each was a little disappointing for what was on offer.
Parking was 10 euros a day but your car is secure.
I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for the perfect place to stay.

This was our last stop on our return journey following from Gran Canaria after the ash cloud grounded us. We chose at random and found an absolute gem. A terrific hotel with very friendly staff who made us most welcome. Great rooms, Nothing too much trouble. Look forward to returning - on purpose next time.

Stayed April 2010, traveled with family

This is a fine little hotel with small but comfortable rooms, many overlooking the sea. There's a pool and decent restaurant, but you're dependent on neither since there are so many good beaches and restaurants nearby. Rooms are clean and staff are friendly and helpful.
