We spent 4 nights at Hotel Darse. I can say that the hotel met my expectations in being very clean and up to date. This looks like it was remodeled within the last year or three. Rooms are cleaned up quickly each day which we appreciated. We had the 8.5E per person breakfast the first morning to keep it simple but the offering was pretty limited. So we got breakfast elsewhere the remaining days. We almost never do hotel breakfast anyway since we're only seeking coffee and a muffin which we can buy for about 5E per person and eat better. 8.5E is a reasonable fee but I'd go elsewhere. The breakfast lady on last Wednesday the 10th was very friendly and eager to please. A couple key considerations about Hotel Darse is that its located about a 1/3rd of mile from the main part of the town which for able bodied folks like myself is no big deal but my wife has early MS and found it difficult to walk that distance late in the day across old fashioned uneven cobble stones along the citadel shoreline back to the the hotel. Also, the hotel has no elevator which was also a challenge for Nita late in the day when she is weaker. So, if you have disabilities this might not be the ideal hotel. I should have figured that out but didn't when booking. If you're overweight, out of shape and pack your entire house with you on vacation and find the walk and hotel stairs challenging you'll get no sympathy from me. My son and I walked it a bunch and like I said no problem for anyone in good health. A lovely walk to and from town for the healthy and sensibly packed traveler. I would stay here again but not with my wife and her disabilities. Great value and very relaxing and quiet in a beautiful coastal village. Very well run.
