Traditional Seaside hotel,

3 out of 5
by from UK
Posted Mar 5, 2016
Pros: Well located.
Location: Well located for shopping (designer shops adjacent were closed off season) and about a 10 minute walk to La Baule's main avenue.
The hotel has undergone a makeover since we were last there and since we stayed in low season it was less than 50% full. We were given a disabled room, not requested or needed) and told it was the only room they had available which was itself rather strange. The downside of this was that the bathroom was constantly flooded when we took a shower (no bath) and certainly the bed was on the small side. The staff seemed at best disinterested and the cost of breakfast, parking etc was on par with a top city hotel. None of which may be out of order in La Baule in July but March??

Pros: L+ le prêt de vélo pour se promener. Bonne insonorisation. Literie de bonne qualité.
Cons: La décoration du hall et du salon.
Location: Proximité immédiate de la mer , nombreuses boutiques prés de l'hôtel. Beaucoup de charme pour la façade.
Hôtel agréable, chambres de bonne taille, salle d'eau très bien. Le bar de l'hôtel et son salon ont besoin d'un sérieux rafraichissement.

Cons: Les étoiles.............
Location: La baule
Il est évident que cette hôtel est vétuste le niée serait mal venue il est urgent de faire quelque chose et de le faire savoir cela serai préférable pour tout le monde ...... Heureusement le personnel est tres bien ,le restaurant est de bonne qualitee à part le renouvèlement des plats ,le petit déjeuner très bien ,le positionnement de l'hôtel bien malgré cela nous reviendront dans cette hôtel lorsqu'il aura été refait (un geste commercial serait le bien venue ) Faisons confiance à l'avenir .
