« A pleasant Visit. »

My wife and I stayed at The Mercure for two nights and enjoyed the experience. The staff were very friendly and welcoming; the restaurant was well worth visiting and the meals reasonably priced compared to most hotels. The room was on the small side, but the power shower was superb. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy. The hotel is very well placed for seeing the old town of La Rochelle. Road changes make finding the hotel a trifle difficult even with sat/nav or perhaps because of it! Follow the signs for the Aquarium which is adjacent to the hotel.

Elisabeth G, Directeur général at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud, responded to this review

Dear Brinley M, Thank you so much for your kind message. We are delighted that you have enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you for a next stay. You're right, to find us you have to follow the Aquarium signs it's easier !! Sincerely, Elisabeth

« Rather disappointing. . . »

The hotel is very well situated in the old port and has it's own secure carpark. However, the first impression of the room was the smell of drains coming from the shower - - and then the general "pokiness" of the room. Not really what one would expect from a 4* hotel, even the standard rooms. As ever from Mercure, the breakfast was very good.

« A modern hotel in an historic old town »

Nice efficient hotel. Located by the new old port and quite handy for town centre. Tourist office close by. Room small but well equipped. Large car park. Good restaurant for both dinner and breakfast.

« Business holiday »

We stayed at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud for 6 nights while attending a 2 day conference held at the hotel. We were very impressed with the friendly service, the room, the conference facilities and the restaurant. This Mercure is well situated with just a 2 minute walk across a paved square to the old town, and 5 minutes from the train station.

« A nice place to stay »

After initially finding the property difficult to locate due to a lot of traffic in the area we were very pleasantly surprised when we did arrive. The front desk staff were very welcoming and helpful and our room, although small as noted by other guests, was located on the top floor overlooking the marina. We stayed for 5 nights and found that although the city was very busy due to it being a holiday period, the property was quiet but within easy reach of everything we wanted.The car park was easy to access and convenient. We would definitely recommend staying here.

« Great hotel »

« Another great stay at this hotel »

Bedrooms modern and comfortable. Hotel staff welcoming and so helpful with booking another hotel for onward journey. Good location. Free parking around hotel building. Good breakfasts plenty of choice - fresh orange juice, Nespresso coffee. Will visit again and again.

Elisabeth G, Directeur général at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud, responded to this review

Dear Sir, Thank you for your positive comment we appreciate that you had a wonderfull stay in our hotel. We will be happy to welcome you again. Best regards. Elisabeth.

« Excellent stay »

We were delighted with this hotel, we had no need to contact 24/24 as all was perfect. The bed was comfortable, the pillows ok, we would have liked a blanket to be available as the weather was hot and the duvet a too high tog. My only complaint which was minor was that the body lotion was awful as the smell was nasty.

Elisabeth G, Directeur général at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud, responded to this review

Tina, Thank you very much for your message. We will inform the Mercure marketing for your message about the body lotion. We hope to welcome you for a next stay in Mercure La Rochelle. Best regards, Elisabeth.

« A bit of a disapointment overall »

The hotel is in an ideal location overlooking the quays and not far from the town centre - Our first problem was access to the site as the hotel is undergoing a major renovation and it was difficult to find the entrance to the car park. We were disappointed with the very, very small bedroom, which looked out onto a mass of scaffolding, so in effect we had no outside view - The bathroom was miniscule the smallest we have ever experienced in our travels, entrance was through a set of double doors which looked like the entry to a cupboard. On a more positive note all the staff we encountered were excellent and were both friendly and efficient also the meals in the restaurant were of the highest quality

Elisabeth G, Directeur général at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud, responded to this review

Dear Anthony, Thank you for your message on Tripadvisor website. We had a really important refurbishment, it's now finished and you can visit us back, you will ahve a lovely view on the Harbour and on the town. It's very easy to find us, you always have to follow the direction of the Aquarium. Hope to welcome ou for a next stay in la Rochelle. Best regards, Elisabeth.

« Room(without) a view »

Location excellent, view -not, breakfasts excellent, bed & pillows -not! Mercury hotel's sister group (Ibis ) although much more basic have far superior beds & pillows, a pity really as we couldn't wait to return to ibis at Calsis for a good night's sleep

Elisabeth G, Directeur général at Mercure La Rochelle Vieux Port Sud, responded to this review

Good Afternoon, Thank you very much for your feedback. I feel sorry you had a bad experience with our bed and pillow. I will let the Marketing Service know about it. Therefore our equipement fits the Mercure's standards. Hope welcomning you soon. Kindest regards. Elisabeth

« Can recommmend »

We stayed at the hotel for one night (14/15 August). Excellent location, helpful staff, clean, well-appointed room. Small room but fine for a short stay. For an extended stay you may wish to consider elsewhere.
