10/10 Exceptional

Luxurious little find in La Rochelle
Amazing little find for a short stay in La Rochelle. Small boutique hotel with great service and even better cocktails! We could have stayed for longer. One downside was the pool area which is more of a dipping pool and there was a bit of scramble to find a sun bed in the sun! Would highly recommend and would go again. Only other downside is that smoking is allowed in some parts of the hotel.

8/10 Very good

Lovely hotel in the nicest part of La Rochelle. Super friendly service and very welcoming reception and communal spaces. The room was large but strangely arranged with little space to get around the bed and no shelves on which to put clothing.
