“Tired hotel that is in need of refurbishment and cleaning”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

From the outside you can see the hotel was built in the 70’s with it’s extensive use of sculptured concrete. Inside the hotel you can see that it has not been refurbish in the last 40 years. The view from the room and the balcony was nice but the room and the bathroom needed an update and a very good clean. The wardrobe was so dirty we did not want to hang anything in it. We had originally planned to stay longer but left after one night. Luckily we were glad that we gave the optional breakfast a miss. ( When did hotels start charging extra for breakfast ?) If you are going to charge €8 it needs to be better than what the hotel was offering. On the positive side, the staff very helpful and there was good parking.

Reviewed November 4, 2010

We had a double room with a balcony having views over the beach area and out to sea. The bathroom was adequately equipped despite looking a bit tired. In fact the whole room seemed in need of a face lift which was more than just the end of season wear and tear. All things considered – a bit pricey but we were comfortable enough and slept well. Can’t fault the staff who were welcoming and very helpful. Free wifi.
We did not have breakfast but the room looked very cheerful and pleasant. We had dinner in their adjoining restaurant which was most enjoyable. Both menu and wine prices were reasonable. We would certainly eat there again.
Sète itself is very interesting and we found the people cheerful and friendly – yes even waiters! We took the bus into town and back – 2euros each return. Highly recommend the combined canals and harbour boat trip.
