“Sleepy little town, jewel of a hotel.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you're on the island you know what it's like, if not go there it is fantastic. Sleepy, maybe the lack of cars and everyone walking or cycling in no hurry, makes it seem that way. The hotel matches the rest of the buildings in appearance from outside, slightly run down and not too precious. To me that's good as it fitted in the surroundings. Inside the place is very smartly decorated and appointed and the rooms were gems. Very modern in appearance. Staff were great too.

Stayed August 2012

Ok, you're on an island and it's a French resort; you really can't beat this hotel for chic, but it's also the only hotel in town. The shower was trendy but very functional, powerful and hot. The flat screen TV small but adequate and there is free wifi for your stay.

The breakfast @ €12.50 each is steep - but the boulangerie about 10 houses away on the right does breakfast for €3.80 each with the freshest croissants imaginable as the baker gets up at 04.00 am to make the bread for the island. His wife makes a great milky coffee! Dinner in the hotel is pretty good value with a nice choice of dishes. There are other places to eat.

To sum up, ok value (except the breakfast!). Nice decor, staff are great other than the receptionist who was a bit lacking in warmth and confidence.

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple
