ideal location on seafront

Posted Sep 25, 2017
Pros: as above
Cons: no....even watch BBC 1 n BBC 2 on room tv
Location: plenty of boat trips etc from quayside...plenty of places to go
excellent hotel and staff who couldn't have been more helpful.....yes 20 min walk along seafront into town for nearest restaurants etc. very quiet hotel in September and must opt for sea view and balcony...admittedly lucky with glorious weather so late in season...kettle and fridge in rooms so you can be self sufficient as we were...catch airport bus 1b from airport into town centre 1 30 euros then get bus 6 for stop outside hotel...overall good value for money.

Very expensive and disappointing

Posted Aug 19, 2017
We had high hopes for the hotel judging by the photos and other reviews. The downstairs reception, restaurant and terrace were nice but the room, hallways and outside appearance of the hotel were disappointing. The outside looked like it was in desperate need of a coat of paint- not very attractive at all. The hallways and room were quite tired and shabby looking and could have been cleaner. It is definitely overpriced as we have stayed in much nicer hotels for far less money.

Pleasant but not cheap

A pleasant stay and with the views over the sea. Nice walk into the city centre (1mile) and some real good places to eat - unexpectedly good meals. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Downside was the price for an 'ordinary' hotel.

Great Hotel by the sea.

Posted Jul 3, 2017 on Hotels
Wonderful Hotel right on beside the water. We loved having breakfast sitting on the terrace looking out over the water. The hotel was clean and updated. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Old Port (The main tourist area). The walk was delightful, as we had to chose to walk along the old stone sea wall or 1 block over was a promenade with trees and flowers. There was no air conditioning in the room, although there were large windows that opened to allow the sea breeze in. Most of the year this shouldn't be an issue but they were having unusually hot weather, which meant nights were uncomfortably warm. No Fridge. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Good location & comfort

Pros: Sea view location.
Sea view room was just that - fabulous. Enjoyable walk into town. Really enjoyed our time there. Air conditioning would have been nice but sea breeze was good.

A lovely location which more than compensates for the walk into town.

Old Town Access without the Old Town Hassle

Posted Sep 29, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is about 10~15 minute walk from Old Town. The walk is very scenic and safe; different routes are available so it won't get old. This allows the hotel to have larger rooms than typical and free parking. The outside of the hotel doesn't look very inviting (a big concrete box) but the rooms are tastefully done and the balconies overlooking the water are a nice amenity. The immediate location doesn't have much to offer for dining or entertainment, but the walk to Old Town is easy enough if you don't have any mobility issues. We would stay here again.

A great stay in La Rochelle . The hotel was just out of the main area so was quieter but easy enough to walk along the harbour to the centre

See La Rochelle in style from your balcony

Posted Sep 25, 2016
Pros: Loved our sea-view room with balcony. Crisp sheets, comfy beds, fresh decor, tea and coffee making facilities plus a little fridge for any 'extras'.
Location: La Rochelle offers lots of historical sights, all sorts of water sports and a huge range of places to eat. Cycling is very well catered for.
We stayed 3 nights at Les Brises enjoying some of the pleasures of La Rochelle. Its setting is splendid - right on the shoreline about 20 minutes slow stroll along the front, through a little park, to the centre of town. Reception is staffed all through the night for late/early arrivals. Staff are friendly and helpful - even asked us if we would prefer to speak French or English - they realise some of us are learners! We enjoyed fine weather and took breakfast outside on the terrace - this is a real bonus for what is a very simple hotel. The tide laps right up against the terrace wall and you can watch lots of boats go sailing by. They offer excellent choices at breakfast - fruit, yoghurt, boiled eggs, ham, cheese, alongside good breads and croissants. Evening drinks can be taken on the terrace, too, before wandering into town to try one of the many, many restaurants in La Rochelle. (Or making a big picnic and enjoying that on one of the many benches along the front). Bike hire available and that's perfect way to get around like a local.
