It was a few yards from the waterfront and restaurants - exceptionally clean - very friendly staff who spoke English. Perfect for an overnight stay
Very clean, breakfast buffet very plentiful. 30M from the beach. Parking undercover Room a bit dated. Breakfast not included in price of room.
Room that took four people + Location Bar closed
Everything was clean and the staff were very helpful. Great value for money None, however an evening snack would have been appereciated
Good location for visiting local area.
The location is ideal with access to the beach and the shopping area with its market within a minutes walking time Like most hotels, the breakfast seems dear when you can go round the corner for the same product at half the price
Friendly, close to beach area we wanted to be in. Would have liked bathroom and shower. Would have prefered courtyard room that was not advertised on website.
Excellent location, car park available which is essential because the town is a maze of narrow one way streets without adequate parking. Bar did not appear to be open but we were at the end of the season and did not ask, so perhaps it would have been opened on demand! Room, while of good size and situation, was tired - although I think it has probably had a makeover [maybe diy]. Bathroom in particular had exposed pipes, looked as though it had been overhauled with minimum expenditure. Possibly we were given an older room, maybe we should request a 'better' room another time
Use of garage for motor bike on a very rainy night was very welcome.
The room was modern and clean, the location was excellent. Where do we start, after staying in a Mecure before I know them to be a great hotel chain to use. However this was not my experience with this one. The rooms aircon was broken, not enough toilet paper and tea facilities were poor. Male resturant staff were rude, unhelpful and very snotty. We decided to eat in the hotel and the food was not value for money and quality was disappointing.
Good service, situation, close to everything, view No
The hotel has recently had a makeover and everything is very clean and new with nice colours and fabrics in the room. It is in a great location 5 min from town centre but quiet in the evenings. Parking is good. Staff very friendly. Nowhere to sit outside unfortunately.
Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Clean and good location. It was a shame about the noise from the building works opposite. Also, the shower door seal leaked which could lead to long-term floor damage.
Very comfortable. Pleasant helpful staff. Very convenient location for walking into Old Port and town. Away from the traffic so quiet
The staff were helpful and friendly. Having secure parking facilities a great benefit. A standard room with double bed was fine for me as a single occupant. However, for two people I imagine the room size might feel on the small side.
location was excellent within easy walk of town but quiet room was quite small and finishes were basic
Pleasant, comfortable. Good breakfast.
geographical situation within the city was excellent
The fact that the hotel is very central to all amenities - enjoyed the breakfasts, although expensive (would book room only next time). Loved being by the harbour and the staff were very friendly. Will return again. Free parking excellent !! Breakfast too expensive.
Position of hotel was excellent. Staff pleasant but not very warm. No cable channels on TV. Breakfast far too expensive. Mini bar not working and contained just 4 small bottles of courvoisier
Great central location. An elegant old building but the rooms didn't have any of the disadvantages you sometimes get in old buildings.
Fantastic location, friendly and efficient staff, lovely hotel Air conditioning was not effective enough
Needs a decent bar
The on site parking, the rooms are very nice and it has a great location, I have stayed there many times. The very surly woman receptionist, afternoon 15/7, who met us on arrival. Beyond the obligatory 'bonjour' there was not one word of welcome or pleasantness a big black mark. I know it is the french way, no wonder the Irish are considered so friendly but it was a pain in the you know where never the less.
Central location and very quiet.
Situated by the Old Harbour and the Old Town of La Rochelle and at the same time a bit off side from it all.
Excellent location in easy walking distance of everything yet quiet at night, parking available at a small supplement at the hotel, spacious room. Our room overlooked the car park/small garden, and over the harbour beyond, but most rooms overlook the internal courtyward - not so nice. Although modernised, room a bit tired - but the good much outweighted the bad.
Nice ambience - welcoming foyer - late night cup of tea - lovely courtyard for relaxed smoke - sitting area separate from foyer.
Convenience, parking, good breakfast
Clean,comfortable with friendly & efficient staff Nothing at all
Thought that everyone was very friendly. The breakfast was good value for the money. The location was great.
Although the Hotel is 15mins walk from bus station it is quite central between bus station & train station to allow you to travel throughout the area. It is also not in the centre but close to it & the harbour area. It is quiet but within a short walk to the town centre/marina, restaurant area. I think it would be better if the breakfast was included in the price as 10euros is quite steep.
Close to the harbour and restaurants The interior was much nicer than the exterior photograph suggests Nothing. We thoroughly enjoyed staying there
Friendly staff, good location and excellent buffet breakfast. The mattress on our bed was far too hard, not good for either a bad back or a good night's sleep.
The welcome, accomodation, breakfast
The close proximity of the hotel to the centre of La Rochelle and it's attractions, restaurants and shopping. We did not need to use the car at all. Breakfast was also better than normal continental fare. The aluminium roller shutters were noisy in even the slightest wind and became very noisy unless rolled up, when the windows were open, which was needed because our room was a little air-less.
Very convenient for all areas of the town. Great to be able to park the car safely in their own car park and walk into town or the port area which were both only about 3 or 4 minutes walk away. The hotel was very comfortable, the facilities (shower products and hairdryer) were better than I had expected. N/A
Nice hotel in the old city. Very friendly people and godd parking facilty in the crowded center. Rooms to the streetside somewhat noisy due to the active nightlife. Leaving you two options: either go and party or ask for a room at the back of the hotel. We went for option two which was no problem.
The location No
The hotel was very good and the restaurant... would have liked some help with luggage on departure ny mother is 88 and I tweaked my bag lugging the suitcases around to the car.!
Spacious room and en suite. Nice comfortable bed. We were on the fifth floor behind the main hotel building, so it was quiet but we could still see the sea over the rooftops which was lovely. Swimming pool was nice and deep with amazingly comfortable seat shaped lilos. Perfectly located beside the harbour, very close to restaurants, the town and bus and train stations.
The location was super. Very close to the harbour and street entertainments at night. We enjoyed the poolside tables for reading etc. There was only one chair in the room - should be two. Breakfast poor value - no muesli, terrible machine coffee, the hot food was awful, marmalade always hidden away. In town, we bought a very good 3 course meal in the evening for less that we paid for the breakfast. Also, when we booked it was advertised as 13 euros, but we were charged 14 on departure.
The restaurant I didn't know abaut parking in this hotel
Yes, we liked this hotel. It's loceted very good.
Excellent location on the quayside. Polite & helpful staff. Sometimes noisy night club behind hotel.
the location was too expensive for the rooms offered which were very basic.
Location was brilliant-very central but peaceful at the same time. Overlooking the port, close to the train station, aquarium, local amenities. Car rental on your doorstep. Staff very helpful.
Location and friendly staff, coupled eith high standard of cleanliness
Everything a modern and contemporary hotel should be. The staff were particulary kind and helpful when we had an emergency having to return home early. Somewhat impersonal in appearance in the public area. Somewhere to sit outside would have been good. A bit far to walk to the centre of town when eating out in the evening.
near to City bed very comfortable and veryconducive to matrimonal activity! overpriced as facilities limited i would suggest they have their prices
Modern spacious room and public areas. helpful staff
What a brilliant hotel, it exceeded my expectations, rooms were clean, very modern, nice firm bed, excellent facitlies.
We had a very friendly welcome and fouynd the room to be extremely comfortable. We liked the tasteful modern decor. Nothing
very well appointed and modern hotel. staff very welcoming and friendly. very comfortable bed. bathroom super. breakfast choices good.
Very clean, new hotel with extremely friendly staff who all spoke fluent English
It was a modern clean hotel only five minutes walk from the port and one of my main reasons for choosing it was because it had parking facilities. I found the staff all very helpful and friendly and it was convenient to have free internet access in the lobby, which was always available. Manoeuvring in the underground car park was a bit of nightmare.
Every aspect in hospitality was excellent.
A spacious appartment in a central location Poor quality breakfast
Clean, comfortable hotel. Efficient helpful staff. Good parking
A beautiful building with lovely antique furniture, very close to old port and lots of restaurants, lovely ambience would stay here again
A basic hotel in a good location.
the location, in the middle of the centre
The lounge area was great, very lovely and cozy with the fireplace and the candles. The staff was friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was accommodating; we stayed in our room until well into the afternoon one day and they didn't mind. (Although there was no "do not disturb" sign to hang on our door!) The free wi-fi worked well, although Neuf Wi-Fi (a pay service) was the first network the computer always connected to! The breakfast was lacking in options for the price it cost. It would have been nice to have a spare roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, as there were four of us sharing it. There is a lack of outlets (you have to unplug a lamp or the TV to plug in your laptop, for example), and the equipment and decoration in the room was aging. This is not a four-star hotel.
excellent downtown location near all central services in la Rochelle, friendly helpful staff the kitchenette in the apratment was little more than a fride and a coffee maker, not suitable for cooking - space in the underground carpark was very restricted and quite difficult to get in and out on a daily basis
Great location, one block from the market, 5' walk from bus station and 10' walk to the harbour. Room with kitchenette, nice small garden with a small sw.pool. Nice staff. Nice room, but maybe a refesh of curtains and carpets could give it another star up.
Clean and room was very spacious! Good facilities in room. There was no car park space when we first arrived and we were informed that we needed to book before hand, but this is not available on the website.
It was near the Airport and to the centre of La Rochelle.The staff were pleasent and helpful. There was little accomodation for people who had difficulty with French.We could not get any literature about tours etc in english although there was plenty in French.
Hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, buffet breakfast was wonderful and common areas of the property excellent
Location was superb. Good aces to the airport about 20 min by bus. lovely hotel.
The location. I thought that this hotel was meant to be a 4* but it was definatly only a 2*.
Upon eventual arrival there was a man playing a piano which created a romantic atmosphere. Views over roofs was enjoyable. The staff werent helpful. (see complaints) There was no 'kitchen area' as described on my reservation papers. I have never stayed at a hotel which has failed to provide room refreshments. Very dissapointing especially after our hot sweat trying to locate you in the first instance!
The upgrade to a saeview,pleasent view and calmness of the hotel
The nice location and view over the sea The WIFI system was poor
Great location. Walking distance to park and 2 restaurants / casino. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Continental breakfast / buffet was also good. Free parking. Price was very reasonable. Rooms are standard (small) Eutopean style rooms.
breakfast room / restaurant atmosphere was un relaxed.
The fact that we could get a taxi to get out of there as soon as we arrived! Reception staff rude, family room was the smallest room we had ever stayed in, stuffy and hot, no airco, it stated that it's 10 minutes to town, yes, 10 minutes by taxi, not on foot. Cold and unwelcoming atmosphere. Nothing nearby, would never stay there again.
position, friendly staff ,
Nice hotel with bit of old fashioned character right by the sea. We were given a sea view room although only booked a standard room. Good breakfast. Underground car park. 15 minute walk to restaurants through local park. Convenient to main roads. Friendly French reception and they spoke English better than my French! TV at reception a little noisy.
We had a lovely room that overlooked the water. The patio was nice for reading under the umbrella
Location, staff, price, Town of La Rochelle was a good "find". Room size a little cozy by NA standards
The view Separate toilet made for a restricted space, would have been better to incorporate it into the bathroom
Nice location Overhigh prices-super expensive brekfest
very friendly staff breakfast good nice walk to restaurants balcony & sunloungers good
The hotel room was fresh and clean and the location was great. Was given a smoked in room initially which should have been non smoking. Bar helping staff staff were sometimes inexperienced considering the price. Breakfast could have been included.
The staff were very friendly & accommodating. The location of the hotel was perfect & the hotel was excellent. no
Novotel standards, swimming pool, comfy beds, cleanliness of hotel, friendliness, bath in the room, enclosed private car park Can't think of any
Friendliness of staff and professional approach. immediate response to problem with safe There should be a basin in with the toilet enabling to wash hands without having to walk around to bathroom, this would prevent spread of germs and inconvenience
Staff were friendly and attentive. Room was comfortable and well furnished. Location is excellent, close to the old town and harbour, nice and quiet in its parkland setting.
Cleaniness, comfort, friendless, breakfast Meals were expensive in comparasion to the harbour
Very convenient to the city centre and attractions Swimming pool was too cold to be useful
the room was comfortable, .very convenient hotel for overnight stays not to be reccommended for holiday hotel on arrival and departure served by far the surliest receptionist rest of staff in contrast very helpful food very poor best to eat out
The buffet breakfast was very good. The hotel was conveniently located and the car-parking was free.
The hotel is situated is situated in a quiet area beside a park and yet is within easy walking distance of the town centre and harbour.
very basic but cheap and easy walk to la Rochelle and with bars cafes and restaurants within a few steps of hotel as close to university rooms clean and functional but a bit grim
the room was clean. there was spare bedding. very easy to check in. liked having the code in place of a key inconvenient that the reception is unavailalbe between 11-17h as would have liked to leave a bag there during the morning.
Hotel was within walking distance of centre and the fact that it had free parking was a plus for us. Very basic but clean. Receptionist kept answering phone and just asked for name and money up front for stay. No interaction at all.
The close proximity to the centre of town, the marina and the Aquarium was wonderful, all within walking distance. Room was very clean and good value. Good for an overnight stopover. It was very impersonal, locked out until reception opened at 5pm and then, on check in, was issued with a code number which opened the front door. More like a boarding house as opossed to a hotel. Sensory lights in corridors a little creepy.
Simple, central to La Rochelle
esay to get to, clean and tidy good value breakfast none
The lady at the hotel found out that a mistake was done with our booking and that no room for 5 people were available for us. She rapidly found a solution and we got a room for the night. No assurance that our booking is still ok when we arrive at the hotel.
Wonderful location. Great food area. Horrific "free" internet service.
the location was excellent..the room was quite .....a good hotel in a beautiful city,but not for a week room was basic...no wardrobe..compact if not small rooms
Hotel in an excellant position - Ideal for the various boat trips, shops and a lovely harbour location together with all the street entertainment. Unfortunately there was an undesirable fishy smell in the lobby and lift areas which obviously eminates from the fish resteraunt next door.
Very well placed, central hotel with plenty to see and do on the doorstep. Helpful staff, clean rooms (basic but comfortable), booked a triple room and got 2 interconnected doubles for same price which was good. Would book again for city break. Some rooms and shared areas looked dark and pokey.
Very helpful staff and excellent service. Good in-room facilities. Air conditioning a real bonus. Only limitation was a lack of a safe in reception large enough to take a laptop.
Location is the best we have ever tried.In the middle of everything.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable and the buffet breakfast had a good choice of food. The hotel is within 15 minutes walk from the old harbour and town so good for access
Nice room, comfortable beds, parking-place and good value for money. A busy road outside the hotel
reasonably priced hotel for the area clean and modern but quite clinical. Two great restuarants opposite hotel Location relating to the town and beach. A good 20min walk from main center no good for anyone with walking dificulties
Quite room,Clean,modern. Would have been good to have a british channel on tv.
The hotel was excellent in every way. Would like more pricing options for breakfast. We normally breakfast on croissants and coffee. Euro 8 per head is expensive for this! We have our breakfast away from the hotel for Euro 4.50 total!
No frills, but it is a clean, modern hotel and the location is good. We would stay there again. Parking is a bit tight, but thats about it.
Clean room and lovely bathroom. Also a very quiet location. The hotel lacked atmosphere and a small bar area would have been nice.
It was conveniently located near La Rochelle Center, and parking was available.
very nice rooms. extras: coffee, tea + biscuits in room. shampoo. -
The staff were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. We were escorted to our room which rarely happens in hotels these days but is a very good idea as the room facilities were explained and instructions were given in how to use the air conditioning. This is not so much a complaint as a word of advice - finding the hotel is very difficult. We took the exit for Lagord presuming to find some signposts to the hotel. However, we found no signposts and having driven around in the dark for some time we came across the hotel by accident. Some signs around the area would be most helpful. On leaving we asked for directions to the airport and were told to follow the signs for Ile de Re - however we could not find any such signs and again drove around in the dark until we accidently found our way!
Indoor pool They charged 25euros for my well behaved pet bet they don't charge for small children that can do lots more damage!!!
The entire were fantastic staff amazing the food to die for. Thankyou No
Very beautiful hotel, very clean, excellent friendly staff. Not really any bad points, but if anything a bar would be nice to be able to sit and have drink at the hotel.
This hotel only opened in July 2010 and is absolutely first class. The staff are very obliging and the restaurant is superb. The rooms are very modern in design and offer all the amenities you could ever need. Only 1 point. The GPS co-ordinates are inaccurate by up to 1km. They need amending or you will be driving around the area for ages !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Everything was perfect: very helpfull and professional staff, beautiful design, good food. Not very central but ideal to get some rest and very close to the sea.
Ocean view was great. Breakfast was pretty good. Bit over-priced. Beach 10 min walk away. Hotel was a little bit run-down. Could be a lot nicer.
Our room was a decent size and we could walk out of our patio doors onto grass at the top of a cliff overlooking the sea (however the tide was out til approx 4pm most days). We were right next to the pool and the staff were very friendly. Very nice beach. We did take a trip to St Martin which is approx half hour drive away and that was beautiful, lots of little bars and restaurants overlooking the marina, definately worth a trip. The location of the hotel spoilt our stay. There wasn't much around. Approx 30 to 40 minutes to the sea front where you would find restaurants, no stand alone bars, just restaurants. It was extremely windy when we went (August 2010) but that may have just been a one-off but overall the hotel was nice and clean and spacious.
Family room for up to 5 people - good value for money. Very friendly/helpful staff on reception Family room would be a little small for longer stays
the peacefulness the price per night is excessive for room only accomadation
excellent location - very clean - excellent staff - relaxing and comfortable hotel.
Comfortable bed. Clean room. Access to cliff path. Polite manager. Ample parking. Pleasant lawns. Caged swimming pool. Small, hard pillow. Poor breakfast service.Found on Isle de Re web site and annoyed not on Isle de Re as this was why we chose hotel.. Advertised cost of room 100 euros but charged 110. Advertised as room with country view but actual view was big tree and car park. Some guest reviews accurate for some of our experiences.
We thought the view from the room was magnificent. The meals were reasonably priced and good quality. The staff were friendly and helpful. The way the sun shone on the faces of the diners in the evening in the restaurant was a bit unpleasant - might have been nice to have some shades.
Good to have tea and coffee facilities ~ very welcome. Sadly you couldn't take us last night and we had to stay at the Ibis instead ~ not nearly as good and we won't stay there again ~ at least, not if you can accommodate us!
staff at the reception are fantastic.. they speak english well to communicate with us. where other hotels we had to try real hard to communicate in french and they didnt even try their english. the staff at the restaurant was pooring, we waited for 40mins and still didnt get no service.. it wasnt busy at all for them.. only 25% tables were taken. they really let the quality of the hotel right down. food wasnt too brillant either.. so we eat out on the next night instead. The branch in Brest airport is better by far in comparision to this one..
Very pleasant staff and good location if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the centre of the town
