The warm welcome and constant caring attitude from the staff was charming. The place is quiet and the pool area very cosy with a beautiful view. The Gaia restaurant worth its reputation.

Amazing experience

On the basis of a very short stay (one night, for professional purpose), I highly recommend La Grande Terrasse Hôtel & Spa La Rochelle. The hotel is located close to La Rochelle on the seafront (a car is recommended to go there). The atmosphere and interior of the hotel are original and cosy. The access to the sea is immediate with possibility to walk or run on a pedestrian path. The confort is high. The service from staff is close to a 5* hotel. The Spa is also nice. However, slots for care or massages seem to be limited and a reservation long time in advance seems to be required.

Good stay overall

2 nights in a very good environment and with a lovely dinner in Bistrot restaurant for Christmas night. Disappointment about the fact that children below 16 can not have full access to the pool - we are coming for this in family and would like to enjoy it all together

First time visit to La Grande Terrasse. Very pleasant experience for our family (2 adults / 2 children.) Welcome was warm, buildings and facilities excellent, staff very polite, spa and pool a joy to use and food excellent. Amazing location just by the beach with gorgeous views of the winter sunset. We will be back.

A wedding anniversary postponed from the year before, and well worth the wait. We had a fantastic time, good breakfast, great spa, and a meal in gaya with great food and wine.

Wonderful Break

From easy parking, very friendly staff, excellent restaurant and service to match it provides a much needed charge to ones batteries. The swimming and leisure pools play their part too!

We found the staff to be exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We felt we were wanted guests. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the room and bathroom well fitted out. 2 small things we don’t drink decaf coffee and there were only 2 other coffee pods each day in the room and no biscuits or English tea. Also it would have been good to have had a sky English speaking news channel on the tv as you get in most hotels in Europe. The dinner in both restaurant and bistro were very good and the duck I had was superb. Breakfast was good but as my husband has a small appetite and only ate 2 small croissants each morning it was rather expensive and we probably wouldn’t pay for it again Perhaps it is worth having a 2 tier pricing system as 25 euros for coffee and croissants is too much. I had the extras and enjoyed mine and was happy to pay for it. It’s lovely to be served at the table too. Altogether a delightful restful 2 day stay

tranlaurent Family - 08/11/2021 TripAdvisor review

Clean and well located hotel. Tried their NUXESpa and it was good and relaxing. Staff was kind. Their restaurant GAYA was delicious. The only blame is that the swimming pool is only allowed for kids to swim on the right side of the corridor which means that we could not fully enjoy this bathing time as we expected but the access is not restricted by hours unlike the Ibis Styles just across the street where Mgallery clients can enjoy by crossing the road in bathrobe.

Well located

My second visit and it won't be the last.Brilliant,superb,beautiful,I'm running out of adjectives.The room was excellent with sea-view:even In January it is well worth it with the ile d'Aix in front of you.The restaurant served us delightful food and the wine list is comprehensive. All in all a good stay.

Maria-Louise W Couples - 08/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

No one could have done more to make our stay perfect than Mr Monin and his team! The moment we walked through the revolving doors we were treated like royalty. New years eve gala evening was wonderful and on Saturday I had the best birthday ever! I have already booked for St Valentine's weekend and can't wait to go again. The only thing I didn't like was getting in the car to go home 😪

Dear Ms Warne (your Royal Highness), dear Monsieur, How to say ? Thank you so very much for your loyalty, you have been staying with us so many times and it is always a pleasure to welcome you both. Our reward is to make you comfortable and read your comment about your staisfaction. We hope that we can see you at La Grande Terrasse more and more often. Everybody here at the hotel and the restaurant Gaya thank you very much for your kindness. We are all looking forward to seeing you soon, Kindest regards, Yves (aka baby chef)

Very good team running this hotel. From Reception to Restaurant you are well looked after with smiles and fantastic food. Rooms very clean with great views out to sea. The gardens are well planted and provide a good place to relax. Did not use the Spa and pool but they look really good, maybe next time.

Dear Sir, dear Madam, Thank you very much for your kind comments on TripAdvisor. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay at our hotel MGallery. You onviously experienced a lot of services, but there are more ! Looking forward to welcoming you back soon, Kind regards, Yves Monnin

(all the family had a great time in the brasserie , even our little girl)The SPA is absolutely incredible : warm water , outdoor jaccuzzi in front of the sea. We have tried shower with crushed ice after a pleasant Hamman ... very surprisingVery nice place and very nice time.We recommand !

simondC593JU Couples - 05/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Hotel room and location was excellent,concierge great job with collection and showing us round the hotel. Breakfast was superb with friendly and welcoming staff.Leisure facilities of the spa were excellent.House Keeping again superb and no issues on the ball as teh saying goesBad bits Bar and restaurant (lunchtime and evening) is a big problem, stopping hotel residents from using the terrace as apparently having private parties has the top priority, Dinner no English translation and lack of continuity when the breakfast menu has,lack of interest from staff unwelcoming and very serious issues, I had to deal with this with hotel manager as unacceptable and hence the score I have given has let down the rest of the departments of high quality

Take In The View

obnoc Couples - 01/08/2018 TripAdvisor review

M by Soffitel is an excellent property with unrivalled sea views. Bar and restaurant average and overpriced which would explain the numbers leaving to head for the excellent and more reasonable local alternatives. Rooms are on the smaller side with ridiculously small wardrobe facility, but I would highly recommend for the view!
