    Very good

    Nice, clean hotel close to the old town and right in the port of Sète. Perfect for 1-2 nights stay. Fair report price /quality. Garage. Very kind and supportive receptionist.

    No minibar; you should ask for water at the reception desk. Bathroom without ventilation. Though provided with a large window, this was blocked by painting. Minimal furniture.

    Fabulous

    Attractive older building well modernised for current usage centrally situated in Sete alongside the canal and thus a short walk from the main restaurant area - much further to the beaches. The room was spotless and well presented if a bit minimal.The room was quietish as it was at the rear of the hotel.The toilet and ensuite were separate and the shower was above the bath and altho' perfectly functional I would have preferred a separate shower cubicle. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would agree with other reviewers comments about the breakfast - altho' it was acceptable better value might be had elsewhere. No tea/coffee facilities in the room but this is not standard practice in French hotels, anyway. I would definitely stay again.

    As mentioned above the breakfast is a bit pricey and presented on a take-it or leave-it basis. Would prefer a shower cubicle to one over the bath.

    Large room with separate bathroom and toilet. Convenient for the centre of the town.

    For the price - compared to other French hotels visited - the breakfast wasn't that sparkling - considering fruit and bread locally available. Unlimited sugar should also be made available. 2 packs really isn't sufficient - especially for use with very strong coffee, naturel yoghourt etc.

    Location is good for Sete

    Lacked charm and smelt musty. No shower screen and water temp is changeable. Breakfast - no choice. The cheaper rooms r small without view and upgrade to the more expensive room is recommended. The courtyard was shut up when we visited. Staff are friendly and informative.

    Exceptional

    The hotel is situated in an excellent position next to the quayside and lots of restaurants. It is a traditional hotel with plenty of style. Our room was comfortable and quiet. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. We were fortunate to get the last parking space as the carpark is small at the rear of the hotel and public parking spaces could be difficult to find at peak times. We had a really nice breakfast in the courtyard garden.

    Very good

    Location on harbour, near to dozens of fish restaurants. Good parking. Comfortable beds. Toiletries good quality. Helpful reception staff. Free wifi - but not tried. Back room very quiet

    Steps up to lift and down to garage - not suitable for less mobile.Toilet space very small. Shower head loose, kept sliding down. Sink plug leaked. Hard pillows.Bathroom window sealed shut - pity. Note: Parking outside garage on meters or underground only so need to reserve hotel space which is limited. Breakfast expensive, so took it at nearby patisserie which was great.

    Fabulous

    The hotel and room were clean and very suitable for our purposes. The location in Sete was superb with a very short walk to all the restaurants/shops in the harbour and to the town centre. The staff were friendly and helpful.

    Breakfast was 9 euros and probably value for money however there are other establishments nearby that you can use instead if you just want a quick/small breakfast. Dinner is not available at the hotel but this did not matter as there are so many local restaurants nearby that are priced relatively cheaply that we wanted to try anyway.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location and easy to find. Could reserve car parking space in the garage. Good breakfast served and not a self service.

    Bathroom could do with renovation.No shower curtain so water went everywhere ! Room a little on the small side but adequate for our one night stay. I think next time we will bookma room overlooking the canal

    Superb

    Hotel location was excellent, especially for the views of the harbour, central position and restaurants. The staff were all extremely helpful and courteous and thankfully spoke very good English. If you are in a car, try to find parking along the street 50m away from the hotel to avoid paying parking charges. Our car battery went flat overnight and the hotel receptionist was very helpful in calling the breakdown service who came within 30 minutes. There was also one English news channel available to keep you informed of world events. We did not eat in the hotel. This is purely because there are many cafes and restaurants surrounding the hotel. The hotel is an excellent place to stay and we would certainly go back again.

    Room decoration was a little bland.

    Very good

    It met all our needs satisfactorily

    Note to otheres: the buses stop at 19.30 on Saturdays and do not run on Sundays. We could not find a taxi on Saturday at 20.00. Apparently none were available so our plans for the evening were totally upset.

    Great location, classic old hotel. Staff speak excellant English and are very heplful.

    Fabulous

    Ensure you book a room with a canal view- a little noisy but worth it to overlook the canal. Stunning both by night and early morning.

    Parking a problem.I left the hire car parked in a busy area alongside the canal and found the door dented in the morning.The hotel has it's own garage but it is difficult to access and charges 9 euros a night.

    The location

    The room was not very nice, "dark" without any charm and stayed 3 nights in this kind of room was not very pleasant!

    The room was very small and the bathroom very basic.
