We had a week here with an inside room opening up to the courtyard/pool, It was comfortable and quiet despite it being very central. Breakfast was help yourself but with lots of options. Perfect base to wander around the port and the old town.

A two night stopover and glad not staying any longer. Location is excellent as you are close to the marina and all the other attractions but the hotel is a bit scattered and sad. The reception staff were great and a gentleman, who spoke great English, guided us to the secure parking (an additional cost). It was a bit of...

Stayed for three days and my wife and I were happy with this hotel. Its position is perfect as it is situated right in the middle of the quay . Walk out of the hotel and there is numerous restaurants to the left and right. Across the road is the marina. The rooms were adequate, and upon reading previous reviews...

Had stayed previously and gave a rave revue. 3 years on its got a little jaded. The staff are wonderful and the rooms are kept so clean. The pool area needs a revamp as its not as good as it was. Breakfast was good for the first 4 days but the bread was very poor afterwards. Am I being picky...

The room was also incredibly noisy with ineffective double glazing we were not offered a different room so had to put up with 2 sleepless nights with...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and had a brilliant time. Room was spacious with great views of the harbour; very clean, lovely large comfortable bed with nice linen.

We stayed in this hotel for one night. Because it was peak season we were glad to find a room in la Rochelle on a Saturday evening. The problem is that quite a few guests, including ourselves, arrived between 15.00 and 16.00 and then had to deal with the fact that the bedrooms weren't ready yet. Without even offering us...

The hotel is on the harbour and is easily found. The rooms are tired and feel like stepping back in time, but the air conditioning worked well and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom and toilet the same. The pool is in the the centre courtyard and only has about 10 loungers, the capacity of the hotel when we stayed was...

Stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely spacious room, clean and tidy but could do with an update. Great location though, looking out over the harbour. We took advantage of heated pool, lovely after a day exploring the beautiful town. Breakfast was lovely although felt like we were in a conference room.
