We stayed here while my wife was recovering from an injury that impaired her mobility. The hotel is small, family run, and in an area convenient to a park, cafes, shopping, and transportation. While the hotel doesn't offer a lift, the owners were most considerate and accommodating of our needs and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. The... More

Great experience at La Regence/Chez Betty. Betty and Thierry were so welcoming and friendly each time we encountered them. The room was recently renovated, well-styled, and the bathroom was large with a great shower. The only negative about the hotel is the street noise, which I can see being an issue for light sleepers. However, it didn't affect me at... More

Nice town with a pretty beach & harbour. Railway station very close but a long walk to the hotel with a suitcase on a very hot day. The hotel is on a busy main road & the traffic lights were under my window & every car was playing loud different music. The hotel is 1 star & that is what... More
