We managed to get a room in peak period without booking and the on site parking is a bonus. However, we were late arriving and there were only 4/5 places available with tiny spaces between the cars, some really silly parking here. The room was fine for our needs; we don't use the mini-bar and always have our own toiletries. The one 'problem' was working out how the shower operated and my partner had great difficulty in removing the bath plug. Also, I found the bath floor extremely slippery and was not comfortable whilst showering.
My partner was offered free breakfast (he is over 60) and perhaps other senior TA's should note this offer applies only in France. The buffet breakfast was excellent, really spoilt for choice and the outdoor balcony is a bonus for seeing the harbour area before the tourists arrive. The hotel is surrounded by an excellent variety of restaurants, several of which we have eaten in and have never been disappointed.
