    Everything. It’s a terrible hotel. Rooms were dirty and very small. It’s a budget hotel charging premium prices. Buyer beware.

    The only good thing about this hotel is the location. It’s an absolute dive of a hotel in need of major renovation

    Right next to the beach and a good clean hotel.

    More reasonably priced wine. With the wealth of wines available across France I think the cheapest bottle was 21 euros we ate elsewhere in the town on our second night and found this was not the case in other restaurants.

    This hotel is right on the beach. Easy walking to the town which has an abundance of shops and restaurants, plus you have the magnificent coastal views. The town is busy and full of young and older people all enjoying the seaside atmosphere, surfing for both. The surf seems to be good a popular good to watch even if you're not a surfer. The hotel is clean has air conditioning and double glazing. The latter useful as you are on the Atlantic coast so those rollers keep coming in. The receptionist speaks English the restaurant is as you would expect at a Logis very very good. Albeit they could have a better selection of french wines. Easy drive to Bordeaux or up to the Point de Graves. Lovely area of France. There is a underground secure car park.

    No shower, just a hand held shower but no shower curtain so water went everywhere. The food forbidden in rooms rule is a bit extreme

    Cool retro style property located directly on the beach. Kids beds were in a separate lift.

    Everything. Worn down hotel, looking shabby from every side, including the inside. Corridors and stairs pitch dark and smelly. Extremely small bathroom, black fungus everywhere. Towel missing, no soap at the basin, only a dispenser in the shower, which was unaccessible and fell apart when used. Bad wifi.

    Nothing. Even the location, which should be the prime selling point for this hotel, is biased by the fact that the view from the room is blocked by a facade in desperate need of paint and plaster.

    Would have liked tea and coffee making facilities in room.

    Air conditioning in room. Excellent location situated on the promenade - a few steps from the beautiful beach. Very friendly english speaking staff. Buffet breakfast at 9 euros was good value for money. Parking 10 euros per night. We parked in car park right outside hotel door.

    The doors to the hallway seem to be thin, as you can hear everything being said when people come back, especially annoying late at night. The décor needs freshening up.

    The hotel is located right near the beach, shops and cafes, and has parking underneath, which is great, as it is impossible to park for free in the centre of Lacanau-Océan. The free wifi was great, super fast and reliable. The beds are extra comfortable, and the family room with the mezzanine is perfect. The owners Stéphane and Nadège are very friendly and welcoming. It is great value for money.
