The hotel is small but our room was spacious, refurbished and in excellent taste - well I liked it. Breakfast is an additional cost but well worth it. The dining room is light and spacious and...

Stayed one night with friends on a cycling trip. The owner was extremely helpful (he speaks excellent English) re restaurants and where to visit etc. Rooms are small but comfortable with nice modern décor. Only criticism the breakfast was a bit expensive at €20 each.

Dear James Many thanks for your most kind praise. We were delighted to welcome you at the Art's Hôtel. I would like to mention that you were not charged 20€ for breakfast but 12€ which is the usual tariff for our buffet breakfast. I hope you'll be back; you'll always be most welcome. Kindest regards Alexandre

The rooms are not large...

We were doing a one night b&b before heading on to main holiday. We had spotted this hotel on previous visits and liked the look of it and it...

this is a lovely small hotel in an excellent location, close to the beach and the small town of St Palais.....2 min walk to either, with plenty of good restaurants and cafes nearby. The hotel itself is a delight! New owners are making a great impression and a new wine/tapas bar in the garden area will soon add to its...

Conveniently situated in a quietish location, very handy for the beach. Charming gentleman on reception who spoke excellent English. Good breakfast in a light, airy room. Lots of notices asking guests to consider others when returning late etc. - they worked! Comfortable room, very clean and some nice stylish touches. Overall a very good stay and would recommend to travellers...
