Reviewed 18 May 2013

Excellent. Stayed here one night May 4th 2013. Ideal. Clean, comfortable. Decent breakfast. All staff were friendly and spoke enough English to compensate for my struggling French. They also have large lockers where you can leave luggage while you explore the town. Location is very good, couple of minutes walk from the railway station and five minutes from the old port.

After a frustrating hour driving around La Rochelle looking for a reasonable priced hotel WITH car parking we finally found Hotel B & B . Thank goodness !! The receptionist was so friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, no frills but who needs un-necessary extras !
The location is very convenient for the old Port and quayside - I wish we had made time to stay an extra day here to explore the area. Thank you for providing a welcome oasis after a long drive down from the north.

I have stayed here quite a few times, as La Rochelle is one of my favourite places in France, and convenient for breaking my journey.
The hotel is near the station, only a short walk into the old port, and sometimes there's free parking right opposite. There are a couple of cafes very near which do much better coffee, so no need for hotel breakfast.
In a tourist town, this hotel is good value, and provides all the basics including free wifi. It's not particularly quiet though - you can hear the station announcements on one side, and the post office on the other. But maybe that's better than the noise of tourists?

Agree with most of the reviews on here.

Lots of Pros as stated by other reviews.

We had an excellent check in by Carl, who spoke perfect English and was really informative.
He gave us 2 free wifi access codes so we could get on the internet via our smartphones in our room.

Breakfast is well worth it, lots of choice.

The room was quirky. Although there were only two of us, it had an upstairs bit with two single beds in. It was good value as it was (71euros) but with 2 extra kids/people staying it would have been an absolute bargain!

Some Cons…
Our room had also had someone smoking in it when we entered, but the windows open wide so it had cleared after a bit.

Pillows were not very good.

The bathroom is well laid out, but you will probably want to bring your own toiletries as they only provide combined hair and body wash dispenser on the shower wall.

Tea and Coffee in the room would have been a big plus for me, but for the price, I’m not sure I should have really expected it. They have vending machines in the reception area, so you can buy drinks/snacks at any time.

I would definitely stay here again for a short stay.

The staff were ever so helpful. We were happy with the space in the room. The room and ensuite shower were kept spotless. The self-serve breakfast was ample and conveniently available over 3 1/2 hours. On the last day, we were able to leave our luggage in one of the hotel lockers while we spent the last hours of our holiday in the town. I would always look to see if there were a B & B hotel in a town I was going to visit.

Room Tip: View from 3rd floor. Balcony door open at night for air, so some noise from railway station announce...

From the outside and lobby it looks like a decent place to stay after a day's drive. We were told that the hotel was a non-smoking hotel but once we entered the hallway to our room we questioned what we'd been told. The room itself smelt terribly of cigarette smoke. We asked for another room and were told there were no more rooms. They brought a spray bottle of smelly scent to our room to mask the odor. In addition to the odor the room was crampt and felt like a Bad Motel 6 if not worse. We learned to drive a little further and look at all of our choices before making a decision on where to stay.
