Hotel Le Dauphin, Arcachon
Arcachon trip.
We were on a cycling trip to Biarritz and we started and finished our trip at Le Dauphin.The hotel was great and the area was also great. The hotel is about 5-10 mins walk from beach/front and is in a lovely quiet area. Perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The room smelt as though a smoker had been staying in it previously, with the windows left open on our arrival, seemingly to try and remove the smell, but the smell remained throughout our stay. The windows opened over the busy car park, so we couldn't leave them open at night. Incidentally, the car park was too full and small for us to use, so we had to park on the street. The worst part of our stay was when the fire alarm went off at 3am. It became clear it was not a test, so everyone evacuated, following the signs. There were no staff present. All guests were just left standing in the poorly lit car park (I tripped over poor paving in the darkness) waiting for something to happen. Nothing did, and the alarm eventually stopped. Everyone made there way back in on their own accord after a while of standing clueless in the car park, but still, no staff present. When we checked out in the morning there was no apology or explanation from staff. Very poor treatment, will not be staying again.

Very Good8.0
Convenient for a short stay
The hotel was average, room was tiny and bathroom okay sized. The hotel looked pleasant from the outside but was a little outdated for decor inside. Parking was free and convenient and staff were helpful and friendly whilst speaking english well. The room wasn't particularly clean and the cleaners finished at 11am so if you weren't out of your room by this time your room didn't get cleaned. Overall the hotel was convenient as it was very close to the beach in the summer town and gave us easy access to restaurants and activities during the day.

Cheap and cheerful
This was a perfectly nice hotel, very clean, nice condition, quiet, but it is a little old fashioned - the air conditioning didn't keep the room very cool at all, and the room itself was very small. It was a nice easy walk into the town centre which was very handy, and it worked fine for us as an overnight stop. I don't think i'd want to have a longer stay here though given room size and weak air con.
