    Rooms don’t have air con and noisy in the mornings with bin collectors, deliveries etc outside hotel.

    Decent enough hotel right by beaches, bars and restaurants. Try and get room at front with balcony, the view is great. If traveling by motorbike they let you put bikes under canopy at front of hotel.

    For the price, etc I don't really think anything could have been better, Didn't affect me - but a very small lift!

    We were in a large room on the top floor with a balcony and views of the harbour and beach. Clean and tidy with a very nice ensuite bathroom. The shower was one of the best we've had in a hotel room. It was a buffet style breakfast which offered a good selection. We definitely recommend this hotel.

    We had no problem parking but it is public and could be a problem high season although you could probably move the car to front of hotel when day trippers have left.

    It is in an ideal situation for exploring Royal. We had a bedroom with sea view and it was lovely sitting watching the world

    A friendly hotel right on the sea front in Royan. Just walk out of the hotel and you are in amongst the many excellent restaurants which specialise in amazing seafood. The staff were very welcoming and spoke very good English. Our room was small and a little dated, but the bathroom had been refurbished and was fine. Parking around the hotel is plentiful, and free. In the height of summer you may initially struggle to get a space (depending on the time of day) but once your in it's yours for the duration.

    Even though the afternoon had been quite cool, the room was pretty hot, and we had to sleep with the patio door open. The lack of A/C could be a problem later in the summer.

    Once we found the hotel, there was parking right outside [might be more difficult in high season] and a very warm welcome from the proprietor. We were grateful for the lift [probably the world's smallest but enough room for one of us and our luggage] and the room was small but clean and comfortable. As mentioned in another review the shower was excellent [better than other's we've come across in much more expensive establishments] and the rest of the bathroom was fine too. A final word for the breakfast which again exceeded what many other places charge a lot more for. The usual but very fresh pastries, bread, juice and coffee etc, plus eggs, cheese and meat, and fruit salad all for less than €8 pp.
