First impresions are good as the reception area is new and this extends through to the adjacent large and attractive dining room and the new bar area facing the sea on the south side. The reception was friendly and efficient and we were given a sea-facing room.
The room was clean and spacious, with separate toilet and en suite bathroom. The bathroom had a proper bath with a free flowing shower over it, although the lack of a shower screen made it difficult to avoid unintentionally turning it into a wet room. The wardrobes were showing their age a bit and the decoration could do with freshening up. However, the proprietor assured us that the renovation started in the public areas is being rolled out in the bedrooms - indeed a decorator turned up to discuss the work while we were there.
There is a choice of two table d'hote menus and an a la carte. We stayed for three nights and had a different selection on each night, all very good French cooking. Lesconil is famous in France for crustaceans and the plateau au fruit de mer served on an adjacent table was amazing. The wines by the bottle are quite expensive, but the house wines by the carafe are excellent and good value.
If you want somewhere quiet, with good food and great coastal views, then this place should give you what you want.
