My wife and I (late 70s) usually stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and we were a bit concerned that this is just a 2 star but our fears were quickly allayed and we would not hesitate to return. We have never been in an hotel where the staff were more helpful and while the hotel is dated it was clean and comfortable. We checked out the Radison Blue and the Royal Yacht but still prefer the Fort D'Auvergne.
We were in sea view room 24 with balcony and found it very pleasing.
The hotel is well located with 4 different routes into town, the shortest taking around 10 minutes and the longest over half an hour. We walked a few times from the hotel to St Aubin and with a coffee stop that took around an hour and 45 minutes.
The pool was clean and good for a short swim.
The food was very good but our only niggle was the absence of condiments/sauces etc. These were never offered along with the meals but Georgi soon got them for us when we asked.
