The staff even with the problem of my being only to speak in basic - hello, thankyou and goodbye French were very good in helping where they could. Even though I arrived early and the room wasn't ready they allowed me to leave my backpack at reception until check-in time a couple of hours later which was good of them. The room itself has a stove, small fridge and oven in case you don't want to try the local restaraunts and the shopping centre nearby gives you an opportunity to have something simple if you prefer. Very close to everything including the beach and the appartment I was provided with had a good view of the harbour.
The only problem I had was with the fold out bed which to be honest wasn't that comfortable but I think for one or two nights it's something you can put up with.
