I think maybe the hotel is undergoing a French refit ie...its going to take a while. We found it in the usual industrial estate location of these roadside hotels. You could smell the paint in the corridors.....The family room was brand new with one room with smart grey bunks and clean sheets, our room nice large modern double bed. Brand... More

Pool is not in use - basically like a building sight with no water in there. Nothing like the pictures. Door of our room was locked shut couldn't open it from the inside or outside because it looked like the lock was put on backwards. Had to climb in and out of the window to access the room. Manager came... More

Overall the pictures on their web-sight are nice, but their actual hotel is below standard. The on suite on the web was clean and nice, but the actual-on suite was a plastic cubical placed in the room with out any vents. The shower was leaking. When you shower the toilet seat would be soaked.The distance between the toilet and open... More

Terrible, open corridors directly into car park, no security. Dirty bedding, uncomfortable beds. Rooms need completely refurbishing. Window would not lock, curtains hanging off rail. Corridors being open to the outside were full of debris blown in by the wind. Pool looked dirty.

.........and I admit my heart sank a little as we checked in. We'd travelled by car to La Rochelle for a couple of days look-around of the area and just wanted a basic, reasonable-cost hotel for two nights. Hotels in La Rochelle itself tend to the pricey as it's a popular tourist destination and a natural stop-off point for places... More

having made the mistake of reading reviews after making my booking, I agree that this hotel is basic, with small rooms, outside the town on an industrial estate next to a motorway. However, our room was spotlessly clean, freshly decorated and with a nice shower room. The pool was well maintained. The free wifi worked very well. Bed a good... More

We had to drive to the tourist office in La Rochelle in order get directions to this hotel as I'd forgotten to pack the GPS Navigator. It's located about 10 minutes from La Rochelle in Aytre driving in the direction of Poitiers. In an industrial estate, though quite a spacious one, it wasn't too difficult to find after being given... More

Not used to motel type hotels so having a bedroom door opening to the outside world was disconcerting but the friendliness of the staff was reassuring. The room was spacious, (we were upgraded to a family room), clean and comfortable. Breakfast was plentifull and varied, (not English of course). excellent value for money.

Our Sat Nav was on strike and we found this place horrendously difficult to find. We actually were near it once but turned around as we did not expect it to be situated at the far end of an industrial estate hugging the motorway.

Good, clean and basic accommodation close to La Rochelle and beaches. Good value for money, as when looking for accommodation in La Rochelle itself, it seemed quite pricey. There is a swimming pool here which we didn't use, but would be good for keeping kids entertained. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was basic and buffet style, although perhaps slightly...
