There’s a real belle époque feel about the Grand Hôtel in Sete. It’s in the architecture, style, central atrium (under a glass ceiling) and even that special, intangible, type of service so reminiscent of the 1920 and early thirties. Unlike many such hotels, however, the Grand Hotel has not rested on its laurels.
A recent refurbishment, for example, has made it even more alluring on the inside, with large comfortable bedrooms rooms and well designed, cool, decor. It all means the “Grand” in the name is perfectly justified.
The location is grand too, by the way, right on the river and great to explore this amazingly little known city. The harbour and some fantastic sea food restaurants are easily reached. Many people feel Sète itself is more genuine, cheaper and friendlier than the Cote D’Azur and it remains a beautiful city, so it is worth exploring in its own right. In that case a couple of nights stay at the Grand Hotel is a no brainer.
Beautiful authentic "old-world" accommodation, centrally placed with views over the canals. Dining room fully booked for a wedding on our night there but we had a great seafood dinner at a restaurant down the road recommended by the hotel. Good buffet breakfast at a reasonable price.

Had an overnight stay here whilst visiting the region. Hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Sete and we were fortunate to get a room which looked right over the canal. Reception staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Private secure parking is available about 50 metres from the hotel. The central atrium, where breakfast is served, is quite stunning. The hotel has been sympathetically renovated giving modern facilities and at the same time retaining original features. We cannot fault it - well done Secret Places for this wonderful find !!!!

Hotel very stylish and clean with great facilities
Needs a bit more customer service i.e. help with bags to your room and improved drinks service in lounge.
Well worth a visit
