The hotel has lost its sparkle, it's not the one in the photo's, remember those movies of the old house, that was once a lively thriving place, this is like that. Overgrown vegetation, half-completed DIY projects, and peeling paintwork. It was a hot, no tell a lie it was a very hot day in June when we checked in for a one night stay. Check-in was ok (thanks Google translate and GCSE French), but then the climb upstairs where it got hotter and hotter, we opened the door to our extremely small double room and immediately opened the windows (No AC here), and found that didn't help, but made matters worse, because, we can now hear the loud seagulls. We requested an oscillating fan to help with cooling and air movement, none provided. The only saving grace for the room was the shower had cold water direct from the Artic (or it felt like it at the time). The evening meal was pleasant enough, but the atmosphere was strange, no background music, no banter/murmurings, one waitress/cleaner, no vibe, it felt like this place was dying a slow death. So the reason for the poor rating was the room was far too small for a double, no AC or oscillating fan, the state of the rooms and general areas needed completing/finishing off. We had high hope of this hotel and its location but were disappointed with what we found.…
Situated in an industrial area of the Port and 25 minute walk into the Festival Interceltique but I wouldn’t recommend walking around the area at night alone. Exterior of the Hotel could do with cleaning. Bed was comfortable and bedding clean. Room needed small repairs and hadn’t been very well cleaned - spiders/cobwebs/dirt in corners. View was of the industrial fishing Port. Staff were pleasant. Ok for an overnight stay if nowhere else available.
Looking at the pictures on booking.com we thought we'd book this hotel. Big mistake, the pictures on booking.com weren't the same and they had used pictures from other hotels, this is a chain of hotels. When we checked in we went to walk upstairs and it stank, it was the smell you get when something gets wet and left. We got to our room, nothing like the pictures at all, curtains hanging off the show was broken and very small rooms! We could of cryied, we had to go for a walk to have a chat, my wife and I didn't want to stay here as it was awful, but it had already been paid for so we had no choice but to stop our 2 nights. We were offered another room, shower worked just, no curtains at all and the shutters looked like they had never been cleaned! Now I've stayed in some shabby hotels in my time, but if have to say this is the worst! I'd sooner stop in an F1 than this place. Be worned this is nothing like the pictures on booking.com Not clean not as advertised and is in an industrial estate too! Stop here at you own peral you have been warned!…
The restaurant is back to its very nice basic lunch menu at 13.50 euro - we had the help yourself hors-d'oeuvere with 10 things to choose from, almost all freshly prepared today, followed by a high quality entrecote with french fries and a bit strange tomato sauce. For desert you could choose between chocolate cake or ice - try the Malaga ice! The restaurant itself is spacious, and the service is professional.
we only stayed one night with our little dog. The manageress Marianne was very helpul while booking over the phone and when we arrived and so was the entire staff. The food was very good and rooms cleaned and nice. A little downside as it is by a port it was a little noisy early morning as it was a warm night we had the windows open.
