My wife and I drove to La Rochelle on 04.10.18 and tried to book in this Hotel for a couple of nights - it was full on the first night as were many others in the area. There was an event or conference on in the area it seems, so we set off towards the Mercure Hotel that is located on the marina - we had stayed there about 15 years ago and we were not very keen on doing so again - however we managed to get a room there at a rather hefty price but I will post my review on their thread.
Now back to this Best Western Hotel, we booked in on the 5th October early, and we were able to leave our car there without charge until our check-in time, which was a bonus - the staff were first class.
We returned around two in the afternoon and were very pleased to open the door to a modern clean room. After a relaxing half hour we ventured out again and returned much later that night after a nice meal in the town. We slept in peace on a comfortable bed, after the usual shower etc, we ventured down to breakfast - it was first class - nice surroundings, a good selection of food and nicely presented. All in all fair value.
As others have said, it is well located, it is smart, clean and the staff are first class - all spoke perfect English - as we are the lazy ones that expect others to converse in English as our accents are terrible.
We would recommend this Hotel without question. less
