Lovely friendly place to stay , owners moved their car to enable us to park right outside . Good value breakfast and great people watching spot if you have a room with a sea view balcony.The only thing I could criticize is not enough hanging space for clothes but the position of the property to the town is excellent .

The hotel is located steps from the beach. And minutes of walking away from the center of Royan. We had a sea view room and the view is just amazing. The staff was really nice and they waited for us at the hotel even though we arrived 2h after they closed the reception. The room is small and basic. But... More

Facing the beach, close to town centre and pretty much all Royan has to offer. Welcoming staff, rooms small but correct and immaculately turned out (viz clean with enough towels,,,) Street parking fairly easy, really good price for the standard and situation. Would certainly use again, and again....

This, our 3rd time here, was as good as the previous twice. The hotel was clean and comfortable and the hosts really do care that your stay is as pleasant as possible. The room was clean and airy, and had a sea-view/balcony for just a little more. A 4th time is certainly on the cards!!

This small hotel and its owners greatly enhanced our visit to Royan. The hotel is well located by the beach and is not far from the town centre. The owners were very helpful and found space for our bicycles in the hotel garden. The rooms are clean and decorated in bright colours. Ours had a balcony and a sea view.... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were small but clean. We had a balcony overlooking the port and the beach across the street. The couple running this hotel are very helpful. They mainly speak French but we were able to communicate in English and my broken French. Breakfast was good. The owners were very helpful recommending places to eat,... More

Made reservation based on location some months before but the reality was Far better.Stunning view from balcony practically on the beach. The welcome was charm itself from a couple obviously not used to welcoming Brits to this very French resort.They really conveyed a warm welcome despite any language difficulty. With its name its coincidentally, obviously gay friendly but thankfully,these days,... More

I needed two rooms for me and my family as we were touring for properties around All Saints week end. We had two adjacent rooms at the back. This is one-star bordering two-star so a real bargain. One of the rooms was larger than the other, with a small balcony. Comfort and amenities all right. The owners are very welcoming... More
