    Improvables: - shower in the bath (not ideal, prefer a large separate shower myself) - mirror in bathroom (I am 2.00 / 6'6"; and higher than the top of the mirror)

    Postives: - the bed is very comfortable - room (and hotel) very clean - nice location at the harbor (I am a sailor) - great breakfast - very friendly staff - boutique hotel (simple, but very effective; I am not a 'show off' person) - great restaurants very close by (at the harbor)

    We would avoid a room without the marina balcony view; well worth paying the little extra.

    Perfect location for us: just a short 10min stroll along marina tideway to lots of super bars/restaurants on the Chaum and the small electric (1 Euro) ferry over the tideway into main part of town. Easy free parking. Super, good sized room with balcony/table/chairs overlooking the marina. Very peaceful and comfortable; good night's sleep. Reasonable wifi and loads of sockets. Excellent, plentiful breakfast with usual breads and pastries but also selection of "north European" plates: eggs, cheese, ham, etc. Splendid owners/managers/staff - so welcoming and friendly! Very good value. Second time we have stayed here and will certainly return.

    NO mirror in the bedroom and didn't discover the long mirror on the back of the bathroom door until I had a shower. Would be good to have a full length mirror on the front of the wardrobe door. NO makeup mirror and the duvets are far too hot in the summer but when I took out the filling it was changed for a sheet and a blanket which was perfect.

    Really convenient to the Marina where we had friends staying on a yacht, and nearby restaurants. Separate toilet.

    Good modern hotel just outside main town area but with easy access and plentiful parking.

    Would not like a standard room "overlooking village", which actually means the main road and a supermarket! This well maintained hotel is built in a relatively recently developed area but it is an area which is already showing some 'seediness' a few hundred mtrs from the hotel itself. Good if you enjoy 10/15 minute strolls along the marina but do not choose if you want regular, easy use of the beaches.

    Good sized room (for the money) and excellent balcony with wide access doors giving an even bigger sense of roominess. Excellent shower room. Large comfortable bed. Exceptional manager and staff; friendly and welcoming. Very good value breakfast with much better choice than in most French hotels in this price bracket. Easy parking (although not secured). Our room was slightly dearer than standard as the balcony looked out to the marina across a grassed area. Hotel very close to marina terrace with restaurants, cafes and bars. More importantly, only ten minute stroll along 'promenade' to main area of the Chaum with its many restaurants and cafes and the small electric shuttle-ferry across to main town area of Sable.

    Lack of toiletries - all in one shower gel and shampoo and no conditioner.
