    Pricing of everything!!!

    This is a lovely hotel and in a beautiful position in a very special seaside town. It is however very expensive - now my common complaint about Accor Novotels. Whilst I accept the pound is low in value, I do believe about £75 per night is a more realistic price. Meals are expensive and breakfast at £16 is way too much. On the matter for food and drink on the Booking.com Information, there is a "City Breakfast" for £7 or £8, consisting of a small fruit juice, two miniature Croissants, a Coffee and little else. I offer no views on that but did eat same on day of departure.

    Dinner. The entrecote was not a good piece of meat - and thus not enjoyable. It had too much fat and was too wiry. There was also not a single vegetarian option on the menu. We had dinner there on Sunday night and kitchen ran out of a few items so some dishes weren't available. Didn't expect this from a 4 star hotel especially because the menu is not that extensive.

    Swimming pool area was very pleasant

    Breakfast advertised as being available until only 9.30 am on weekdays and guests expected to have finished by this time rather than breakfast being available to start up to 9.30 am. Staff rude when asked why they had started to clear the buffet and remove e.g. jam very promptly at 9.30. No proper apology from a very defensive duty manager when we complained. Quality of breakfast buffet adequate but we have had much better at other hotels in France of the same star rating.

    Very convenient, quiet location for visiting La Rochelle on foot. Comfortable room, with bath, kettle and excellent lighting.

    The pool did not look as inviting as it did in the photographs on the website. If looked a little dated and quite close to the restaurant, so we have it a miss.

    The welcome that we received from the lovely Irish receptionist was brilliant. She really was lovely! The location of the hotel was great, just a short walk from the centre. The room was fairly spacious and worked for us as a family of 3 for a short stay. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening, as there were too many nice places to try in the centre. However, we did eat breakfast, which was excellent.

    Hotel restaurant was expensive with limited menu and can't match the local competition.

    Hotel is on a one way street, car access is from the south through the park. Easy when you know or if your Sat Nav is better than ours.
