The title says it all. The owner was very helpful with hiring of bikes, including a 'guest' discount and always ready to give helpful local information. 3 nights on the Ile de Re was a wonderful short break.

This hotel will deduct money from your account and if you need to amend your booking will refuse to return it quoting small print on their website which they don't mention in email correspondence. They do not respond to requests to communicate.

We stayed in the Hippocampe at La Flotte in August 2012. We booked a family suite well in advance in early 2012, which comprised one room with bunk beds and one room with a double bed plus a bathroom. The room was adequately sized and comfortable within our expectations for the price and type of hotel. The rooms are simple... More

Nicely decorated and clean rooms, nice patio and " livingroom". The continental breakfast was not good value for money. Coffee without taste, only white bread (and croissants), and only very sweet jam to go with the bread. The host and hostess were very polite, but seemed to have little interest in the guests. This feels awkward in such a little... More

The cost was 61 euros including breakfast,The next morning we sat under a totally blue sky in the enclosed courtyard decorated with pots of flowers on the windows and with maritime objets.

We have just spent three nights at the Hippocampe; our fourth stay at this hotel (once with our grandchildren) and our eleventh holiday on the island.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 week and by the 4th day we were looking into the possibility of moving hotels or bringing our flight forwards to go home early, as we just didn't want to stay there any longer because it was spoiling the holiday. Sadly, neither option was possible so we stuck it out and avoided the... More

The Hippocampe is grossly overpriced for what it is: a low- to mid-range B&B. Our bedroom, for which we were charged top rate, was minute, as was the en-suite bathroom, and they were poorly equipped: no radio, no TV, no alarm clock, no wifi, no hairdryer, no kettle, no fridge, and the lighting was too dim to allow reading at...
