Le Grande Large is a small but comfortable and convenient hotel. The accommodation was clean and the hotel staff friendly and helpful. There is a beach just across the road and the town is just five minutes walk away. For those people not keen on cycling everywhere there is a cheap and efficient bus service making it easy to get anywhere on the island. A nice pool, clean and not crowded. Would definitely return.
Only there for one night on route from Nice to Roscoff. Lovely location over looking the sea. Only 44 rooms in a boutique style hotel. I had a standard room with King size double bed that was very comfortable though relatively small compared to the room, but this is clear from the pictures of the hotel. Huge variety at breakfast and delicious. Free parking opposite on the beach. Alternatively the hotel charged 7 euros and was 250 yards away if you want to be more secure. They did not charge for the dog which is very unusual and were very welcoming. Friendly English speaking staff. Would definitely stay there again. The only downside is if you were there for a long stay the bridge toll to the island is 8 euros each way.
Welcoming reception staff. Advantage to be able to speak French but not essential. Bathroom was very good. We had a first floor room overlooking the sea which was lovely. No air con and large opening double window was a lovely surprise - do not normally have that luxury in a hotel room. Definitely recommend this hotel. We will stay again.

We were pleasantly surprised with this spacious, modern hotel. It's very much set up for self catering with electric hob, fridge, microwave and dishwasher. You can get breakfast but they don't cater for any other meals. Our apartment consisted of two bedrooms and a lounge area which contained a small kitchenette. All the rooms were a good size and were cleaned daily with fresh towels provided. Beds were slightly hard but that's just a minor quibble. The staff on reception were very helpful and spoke good English. We had a leak under the floor in our room and when reported the problem was dealt with immediately and we were moved to an equivalent apartment. You definitely need a car to get into the centre of La Rochelle. It would be a good hour's walk to get to the centre from the hotel. The nearest supermarket is just round the corner and supplies everything that you might need. Secure underground parking is provided. Swimming pool was fairly basic but wasn't too cold which suggests that there was some form of heating. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We would happily stay there again.
We have stayed at this hotel previously and we were just as happy on this visit. Lots of parking and the reception area is very bright and welcoming. The children (9 and 3) both received a small gift upon arrival which was a nice touch.
The room had a sofa bed for the children to sleep on and overall was very clean and functional.
Only fault was the air con not working
Fantastic hotel, very friendly staff, excellent location, really felt that bit special. Very central to the harbour/beach etc. We had booked into Christian Coutanceu's which is a 5 min walk away. It look very mysterious from the outside (and pretentious) but once inside it is decadent with exceptionally friendly staff.
