We stayed there for 2 nights in Nov. 2013. The cosy, peaceful atmosphere is reinforced by the delightful choice of high-end design furniture. The rooms, though not enormous, are wide enough for couples, and the bathroom is a call for relaxation.
The location is absolutely perfect, in the heart of the village, and the bike-rental organized by the Hotel is quite competitive pricewise. If you want to discover Noirmoutiers, it is probably one of the best hotel options there. I bet that the outside pool is also a big plus during summer days.

Lovely hotel, centrally located. Clean and spacious rooms overlooking the Castle.
Well laid out breakfast. Personally, i wou have liked a kettle or coffee machine in the bedroom.
Friendly staff. Good value for money. Will gladly return and reccomend this hotel.

Stayed for two nights with the family ( 2 adults and two young girls ) during the Bastille celebrations.

The location is amazing, the pool is great and safe for a young family ( clearly recently developed and a good improvement)

The rooms need some work for them to really work for families. For example the lack of safety catches on the Windows . The bathroom falls into this category with a very poor shower and a wonky toilet seat! The shear lack of drying facilities is also a bit of a nightmare.
The rooms need work...

Saying that we had a great few days using the free buses to the beach , great restaurants .. You must try the oysters at the bar/ restaurant onze on the harbour wall ... Absolutely fab( best ever)

The owner didn't speak any English not a major issue , though I thought this was a hindrance for a hotel in a tourist location.

Final point - fireworks were great on the harbour wall on Bastille!

Via the hotel's own website we booked 14 nights with breakfast included for which we received written confirmation. When on departure we wanted to pay, the lady owner refused to honour the confirmation, insisting on charging us extra for breakfast. She even tried to claim the web confirmation we had received was false and that the booking had been made by telephone! Outrageous.
As for the hotel itself, I must say I am surprised at the positivity of some of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We know the town well so knew the location was very central, but it is effectively a B&B with a small bar and a plunge pool - very limited facilities, no comfort and the rooms are extremely basic (which the "classy decor" cannot compensate for). There are other hotels equally well situated - avoid this one.

The hotel is at a nice location, DIRECTLY next to the Chateau, yet only minutes away from the town center. The breakfast is good, and the host family is friendly. Pool and bicycle rental on site. Parking you can to find around the Chateau or towards the harbor nearby.

As a surprise birthday break this was quite an eye opening experience.

My wonderfully organised partner had booked online some time in advance, however, experiencing difficulties with the online payment he called to confirm the booking & spoke to a gentleman called Vincent who emailed written confirmation by reply and stated payment on check out was fine.
Two weeks prior to our visit he called and emailed again just to make sure, he received no reply.
Upon arrival to the hotel we were met with an extremely rude reception from new management who did not speak English... After the cleaner kindly translated our poor French we were told that she did have a room for us for two nights, not the three that we booked as she was double booked on the last night of our stay. She said that the booking online was wrong and refused to accept our email proof of the confirmed dates.
Long story short they "found" a room in another hotel in the town for us and assured us they had come to an agreement with them to charge the room at the same rates.

Our room was extremely small and not finished to a terribly high standard, wifi didn't work and there was no aircon.

Breakfast was good, however we booked bed and breakfast, needless to say as other reviewers have found, breakfast was an added extra at check out! And it's not cheap!!! €18 for two.

The support hotel they found for our last night was a lot more expensive and they had blatantly lied about securing agreeable rates.

The whole experience left a sour taste in our mouths.

The new management lady is a mum and clearly she is inexperienced at this kind of operation, she did not once seem apologetic for her errors or even friendly. She frowned morning noon and night.

If you buy a business clearly you buy the responsibility to honour previous bookings and handle any mistakes as professionally as possible.

Style over substance and we would never return to such a hostile environment or catalogue of errors.

A fantastic stay here, our family room was huge and beautifully decorated in shabby white and coir style carpet. Separate stand along bath and bathroom were a nice touch of luxury. View from top terrace out of our door at castle was stunning.

Service from Emilie was of the highest class and the breakfast the best I have ever had in France, the variety and quality of everything offered was unbeatable. Great location just off the castle with many great restaurants around.

Noirmeutier was amazing and I wish to return, I will be staying here for sure!

This is exceptional for a two-star hotel, from furnishings to ambience to breakfast to service. After reading other reviews we expected a lot and weren't disappointed. Location is ideal, and the owners have an encouraging "onwards and upwards" appoach - they plan to make it better. We spent a week here, and we'd certainly return. Only quibble - the room was often not serviced until the afternoon, but this was peak season and the hotel was deservedly full every day.

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of july. Lovely hotel. Rooms excellent. Simply decorated but stylish and very clean. Hotel is run by a lovely couple who are very helpful and friendly. We had rooms 1 and 2 which overlook the pool and have a small terrace. Breakfast is extra but worth it. Very good buffet. Kids very impressed with the choice of 4 different caramel sauces to put on crepes. The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the town. Lots to do and some great restaurants.
