I had been to St Martin once before for a few hours and wanted to return for a night. This hotel was just perfect. The lovely lady from reception sent me a map and a barrier code to get in and asked if I had any requests. I ordered some flowers for my wife, She clarified what price range first...

We enjoyed staying in this little hotel. The rooms are perfectly good for a hotel with all the amenities you would expect. The bed was super comfortable and the hotel was nice and quiet. It's very central to walk everywhere. We jumped off the bus and walked about 5mins to the hotel. After that we used bicycles. The best way...

Stayed here five days and really pleased with our choice. Perfectly located just around the corner from one of the prettiest harbours in the whole of France. Friendly, efficient staff who were always happy to help and advise if necessary, eg sights, bike hire etc. Beautifully furnished throughout with clean, comfortable rooms but no AC. Lovely breakfasts on a small...

We love the Ile de Ré, and have been there many times over the years. We nearly always stay at Le Galion in St Martin de Ré. The key to this hotel is its location. It is within a couple of minutes’ walk to the restaurants, shops, and bars around the harbour, and yet is in a quiet street facing...

Le Galion has been my refuge and resting place on the Ile de Re for at least 10 years, probably more like 15 years. I have visited the hotel with my children, my partner and my sister - most recently last week, and it feels like coming home. A lot has been written about the location, rooms and les Anes...

Perfection location just around the corner from the main port of Saint Martin de Re but with a lovely lighthouse and green to the front and you can see the boats coming into the port.

always super friendly in this hotel, which is ideaaly located on the edge of town overlooking the park. The rooms have a modern decor mixed with a dot of history here and there, with the usual separate loo and bathroom. For Brits, they speak english which is always useful.

We loved this hotel - all the staff were friendly, breakfast was very good and the room was lovely, spotlessly clean and a good size. The location is excellent, right by the park and just minutes walk from the harbour with all its bars, restaurants, ice cream, amazing waffles, stalls etc. The whole town is just stunning and we were...
