The only reason I have marked this hotel down is that the room on the ground floor is not well situated. Its view is on to the front car park, and - at night - you can see and hear the cars coming and going. Also the room itself felt a little awkward. Whilst it was large, it did not feel particularly habitable.
We thought the breakfast was 17 euros each (too steep for us). But we found out on checkout that it is 17 euros together. So we would have gone for the breakfast had we known this.
I know it said on our reservation that our room would not have the best view. But I was still expecting more, and left feeling a little disappointed.
Also, there isn't much to do in Fontaine. There are no nice restaurants, and it has a very touristy (and young children orientated) feel. It's not that good a base to explore the region either because it is quite far from the main A / D roads.
We ended up checking out a day early because of these points. And we wanted to see the nightlife in Marseille. Needless to say, the owner still charged us the full price of the last night. We felt that he could have exercised his discretion not to take that step. That would have made all the difference for us.
This review does not detract from any of the other wonderful features of this hotel (such as the pool, jacuzzi and immediate surroundings).
