“A great location”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Suggested by a colleague who said ignore the 2 star rating, try it and see. Well here we are in a sea facing room. It's a bit on the small side but the bed is very comfortable, the bathroom adequate and clean and the view.......

Very friendly staff, great bar/ restaurant down stairs, car parking is across the road in a pay area but hey who cares we are on holiday. Will we come again - you bet.

Room Tip: Get a sea facing room

Superior room overlooking the harbour. Decorated all in white with blue striped curtains gave a very fresh nautical look. Comfortable bed. Only downside was no tea and coffee facilities. Receptionists very helpful and even managed to find me a travel adaptor for my ipad - my French must be better than I thought as they spoke little English! Lovely walk around the headland to the beach where we enjoyed a cold beer in the Bahia cafe! Only rated 4 as woke desperate for a cup of tea!

Excellent location on the port and the center town. Parking place at 200 meters. Our bedroom was really nice with a fantastic view to the sea. Many restaurants at the bottom of this hotel.
Staff is kindly and breakfast was good.

Hotel in great location overlooking port and castle and close to all the bars and restaurants. Also very close to old part of town. Parking bays outside free for 20 minutes for unloading but then need to move to paid parking 50 metres away or free parking about 10 minutes walk on other side of harbour. Friendly and helpful staff. Room very small but nicely decorated and with very good bathroom. No English channels on TV in room. No Lift. Wifi reception in room good.

Nicely situated on the port of Pornic. Rooms too small but clean.Difficult to install and open an average suitcase and still have room to walk. Breakfast beyond the average French hotel of same class.A bit expensive for a 2 star hotel albeit the good situation.

Reviewed 29 July 2011

We recently stayed at the Beau Soleil for two nights whilst touring Normandy and Brittany. The hotel is in a lovely location overlooking the quay and is close to many restaurants and bars.

The room was pleasant, well decorated and of reasonable size. The bathroom was spacious, with tiled walls and a powerful hairdryer. Breakfast was charged additionally and offered a reasonable choice of breads, croissants, yogurts and cakes.

At the time we stayed, the town centre was completely shut to traffic for three days, causing us a good deal of frustration in finding our way to the hotel. When we did arrive there was nowhere to legally park the car to unload the luggage and in our opinion parking is a real issue when staying at the Beau Soleil. After talking with the receptionist we decided to use their private parking (also an additional charge and not easy to find). With at least a ten minute walk uphill to the other side of town when going out in the car, this arrangement is inconvenient and means that you need to work out carefully what to leave in or take out of the car every time.

We stayed on a Friday and Saturday night and, even with the windows closed, there was considerable noise outside during the night.

Overall , we feel that the hotel is expensive for what it offers and we would probably would not recommend it owing to the difficulties stated above.

Reviewed 4 August 2010

The location of this hotel is perfect and cannot be beaten, in fact we couldn't find any others in the town centre! The rooms are adequate, a little on the small side but with a good large shower. We had a harbour view room for €92 without breakfast and while the view was great, there was plenty of noise during the night and worse still at about 5am when the street cleaners were out with their shovels.

To corrcet the last review, the restaurant on the ground floor is not actually owned by the hotel, they are completely seperate which we were advised by the restaurant. Also the 2 ladies we encountered on the desk were extremely unfriendly.
