“Not great”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We only stayed one night and did not spend a lot time in the room which worked out good. Per other suggestions we booked a room with a view which was on the second floor. We arrived early afternoon and the hallway and staircase was absolutely too dark to find your way. We finally found light switches as we walked up to our room. Overall room is in desperate need of an update. The bathroom sink had no counter so no place to put toiletries. Toilet sat so close to bidet that when sitting my knees hit it (I'm 5'3"). Towel was so rough that when I first used it I thought I had accidentally grabbed the floor mat. The view was great and we weren't bothered by road noise. For one night it is ok but the price was a bit high for such a dated facility,

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

My girlfriend and I were a bit astonished by the many negative reviews of this modest but clean family hotel. True, the rooms lack a bit of human technology (there are exactly zero electricity sockets in the bathroom) but the air conditioning was among the best I have ever seen (and not heard) in a hotel room. The in other reviews often cited sound pollution from the road in front of the hotel was completely absent, thanks to the double windows. The staff was friendly, the breakfast ok (albeit not really inspired). Price/quality of this hotel is excellent, especially given the outrageous rates of other hotels in the area.

We had to stay in Banuyls for business, this is a place a very pretty mediterranean port but with no descent hotels ! This one is very mediocre and does not merit it's 3*** the rooms are very basic, the bathroom even worst... Bad taste and no hot water... The bed is covered with a plastic sheet, luckily it was not too hot outside, but in the middle ofthe summer this cover would feel like a sauna... Breakfast very basic and serve in the hall dining area with no style at all... We do not recommend this hotel... He receptionist was nice though...

The hotel was simple, clean and had a beautiful view of the sea with the morning sun rising above the ocean. It lies just a 5 min. walk from the centre of Banyuls. A main road in front of the hotel can make it noisy in the summer, though. The bed was too hard for us, there were small things not working or partly falling apart which can be irritating. The breakfast was good. All in all, not a bad experience but not excellent either.

Stayed 5 nights at this hotel. It was clean and simple and have no real complaints, I believe the owners are slowly upgrading the place. The staff were friendly and helpful if a little pushy about using the resaurant next door, this we declined as it appeared over-priced, however not having tested it we could be doing it a disservice. I had read some criticisms about the breakfasts but we found these to be fine, on a par with most you would get in France. A note of caution you are given a card with the hotel code for coming in late at night, remember to take it with you, we forgot about this and went out one night to find ourselves locked out, fortunately the adjoining restaurant was still open so we managed to get the code or would have had to spend an uncomfortable night in the car.
