Les Gens De Mer Hotel reviews

Would not consider the room we had as a Comfort double room. The bed was the smallest we stayed in during our 2 wk visit to different parts of France and Spain. The bathroom was old and badly needs renovating and smelled of dampness. That all said the staff were very helpful. The location is very good and there is private parking at a charge of 7.50 Euro a day. But bathroom was so bad I have taken photos and will put them on the net when I get a chance.
