    When we booked we were unaware the ownership of the hotel had changed and arrived to be told our pets were not welcomed. After some discussion we were allowed to keep them with us in our room. The rather abrupt manner of manager during breakfast chastising a guest for not using the coffee machine properly was disturbing and means it is likely we will not return unless pet policy is revised.

    We loved this hotel and have used it for the past 7 years on routes to and from the UK as it gave us exactly the accommodation we like and allowed in the past our pets

    This was the first time in our experience that the hotel host accused us in coming late (we arrived at 22:20). After we turned on light, in 10 minutes there was a strong smell of melting plastic - it turned out that the bulb (really hot one!) was placed only 1 cm from the plastic kettle. It was a pity, because the kettle was practically new. However, it wasn't damaged so much, and we used it to boil tea-water during our stay :) One of the light switches in the corridor is almost falling out of the wall. In our bathroom the window (that presumably should open) was fastened with screews to the frame.

    Saint-Paul is conveniently located close to Mimizan and to the roads that lead to Contis Plage, Biscarrosse, Arcachon and Bordeaux. With a car, you'll have great opportunity to explore those wonderful places. Also we liked the restaurant in the hotel (pay attention to capuccino if you order it, though ;) The room is relatively small, but comfortable. We enjoyed our one-week stay there.

    Could have more fruit for breakfast.

    Very efficient & silent air con. It is on a busy road but don't let this put you off as between very good double glazing & proper blackout curtains our room was totally silent & we had a fantastic nights sleep.Very clean & our room had a wet-room shower & we even had a little terrace with comfy chairs & a table.We had already booked a restaurant but theirs looked good & reasonably priced.Think this is a better option than staying in Mimizan which is noisy,heaving & impossible to park.(we are in August)Ample parking here!!

    Restaurant was closed which caused us issues with children as we were not warned ahead of arrival and there wasn’t really an alternative.

    Lovely location for car traveller and on-site parking - not secured but no need in quiet village. Lovely area. Very friendly, helpful staff, with good English. Lovely evening meal and great breakfast. You get what you pay for but this was one of our more expensive venues.

    Wonderful location - friendly reception - suits our needs perfectly - as a result have used many times over past 5 years - best family room we have ever come across with room for all five of us with ease plus our cat and a large dog.
