We looked for a nice place to stay on the Ile de Re and were surprised by the costs! This hotel is considered "budget" - but we don't think really it is that cheap.
We did however opt for an upper floor room for the lovely views of the sea (there is no lift so the bag transfer up and down was sporty!). The room was cosy but nicely decorated. The bathroom was very compact - but a separate WC is always a bonus!
There is no restaurant in the hotel, and breakfast is optional. Staff were very friendly. Well placed in the lovely St Martin - bike rental shops and restaurants and shops all very close by. We stayed three nights and did not move the car once from the free public parking a few hundred meters away (you pay to park in front of the hotel during the day).
And .. our little dog was happy there too!
