This hotel has a lot of charme, a true luxury experience with local flair which sets itself apart from the usual rack of 5 Star franchise hotels. Bungalows are spread out over a charming hilly estate, and the whole place has kind of a special "Zen" atmosphere about it (architecture, color scheme, etc.). Beautifully crafted pool with swim-up bar and centrally set a la carte restaurant. The hotel beach is average but, hey, you are on La Digue and the world's most photographed beach is only a 10 minute bike ride away (opens at 8 am, come early and you'll have it for yourself...). Bikes are in good quality and supplied free of charge. There are more, equally beautiful and less populated beaches towards the Northern end of the island (5, 10 and 20 minutes by bike). The spa has stunning views and was amazingly crafted into the granite rocks (we didn't get to try it, though, as there were too many other things to do). Management and staff were very attentive.

Beautiful island with lovely beaches strewn with beautiful granite boulders. Really fun to cycle around the island on rental bikes.
Probably the best located hotel on the island we thought.
We stayed in the "Orchid" superior room. The room was slightly tacky but the view from the balcony was probably the best on the island we thought as it looked down onto the beautiful beach below.
Evening meals were good.
Breakfast OK but nothing to write home about .
The restaurant manager (from Sri Lanka) was excellent - a very friendly chap, who really made our stay at Patatran very special. We would give him 10 out of 10 for hospitality.
Only thing really to complain about was the exchange rate the hotel levied on our final bill... on top of the government restaurant tax (5-10%) we'd already signed for, as we paid at the hotel desk at the end of our stay (rather than directly at the restaurant after the meal), they charged another 10% government tax + their credit card machine only worked in euros (rather than seychelles rupees) and the hotel forced an exchange rate on us that was 15% worse than anywhere else on the island => not happy with this => make sure you pay for your restaurant meals in local currency at the time of eating

Wonderful hotel! Very welcoming , hotel is recently new so everything is modernized and still smells new. Hold only 4 rooms, so it's nice and quiet. Food was great. The house is located right on the beach and about 1/2 a mile from the worlds famous beach. We had to get laundry done and they were very fast at getting it back to us. We were extremely happy to have chosen this place!! I would say the only downside is the hotel is across the street from a school which was sometimes loud with children, but if you don't stay at the hotel during the day you are fine.

We stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon in the Seychelles. The hotel is very new so everything in the rooms was working correctly and looked bright and fresh. The hotel is located within walking distance of the jetty and main town area of La Digue, and is right on the beach. There is a beautiful garden area with swimming pool and the whole hotel has a very relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, including organising activities on the island. The only time we had a problem was trying to checkout, where we were waiting for some time. The included breakfast is very good with fresh fruits and either pancakes or eggs cooked while you wait. The Italian owner makes some fantastic food for dinner so be sure to stay there to eat at least one night.

Historic and majestic, the Château St Cloud is a Fantastic hotel with a very relaxed and pleasant atmosphere.
Couldn't fault the amenities, the location, the service or anything else. Certainly a great place to stay and relax with friendly staff to accommodate any of your needs.

Seychelles is fantastic but after visiting other hotels, we find this one to be below standard for the value. No swimming pool, no TV in the rooms, no internet access, faulty safe box, faulty AC. The location of the hotel is not conveninet; you must mobilize to get to the closest beach and any gear that other hotels provide free of charge for you to fully enjoy your stay (e.g. goggles and fins) are additional. You will need to rent a bycicle to go anywhere else or you should prepare yourself for a long walk (2.0Km @ 30 Deg Celsius). If you want to go to another hotel that offers a better value for you money, the hotel will still charge you 100% of what you paid.
