The Kyriad is a modern block on a canal just 15 minutes walk from La Rochelle's marina and old town.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff welcoming and friendly.
Only quibble was that we stayed two nights and the complimentary coffee tray does not get replenished for the second night! There is private parking on site but it's advisable to get in early as space is limited.
There's an excellent Chinese buffet restaurant just five minutes walk away if you want a break from the touristy sea food places in the town.
