La Baule Escoublac boasts the longest white-sand beach in Europe, running some five miles along the bay. The gorgeous beach is backed by almost 5 miles of modernist hotels, condos, and casinos with bars, boutiques, and restaurants sprinkled in. Just north of the casino sits a huge Victorian mansion back of a deep, luxurious lawn, altogether quite unlike any other... More

First the good points.....the hotel is in a good location, and our 'superior' room was large, comfortable, and with an excellently equipped bathroom. The outside grounds are very well maintained. Second, the not so good....the restaurant occupies almost all of the ground floor, there is no air con in the bedrooms, no on site parking, and tour groups occasionally fill... More

This Castle is amazing. The food was absolutely gorgeous and the presentation was beautiful. The flavours were absolutely amazing and everything was so creative. I wish I could say this was a local and I can't wait to visit again.

Top class hotels should excel at everything, but the Castel Marie-Louise décor does not meet the same standards as the restaurant and the hotel staff. From the warmest of greetings and support throughout our stay from Anne-Francoise and Katherine on the front desk to the lady who gave us sugar lollipops with her turn-down service, we have the best of...

Stately building with awkward access to the street. Rooms are well proportioned and well kept but becoming dated. The small staff at the front desk seems to be responsible for everything including a hard working little gal that also has to leave the desk to carry your bags the 30 yards from the street, up the front stairs and to...

To explain the setup here, this very old hotel is owned by the Barriere Group who also own the near-adjacent much larger 5 star Hermitage and Royal hotels as well as the Casino along the same stretch of the promenade. But this is the one that houses the Michelin starred restaurant and that seems to be its main raison d'etre.... More

This hotel is smart and well located but as a 5 star it only just meets the standard. The rooms are well proportioned but are beginning to look a little tired. In particular the caulking around the shower in our room was soiled and paintwork chipped. In the dining room some of the seat cushions are threadbare. Nevertheless we have... More

We stayed two nights at this hotel and enjoyed immensely. Good central location next to Beach and only 15 minute walk to High Street. Large comfortable and luxurious bedroom/bathroom. Restaurant and food very good but also very expensive. Two glasses of sherry for example were 24e? However still enjoyed our experience of haute cuisine and would return. Large private car... More

We came to this hotel with high expectations given its five-star rating. but were disappointed. The rooms were nice, as were the dining room and surrounding grounds, but one of our rooms (for a family of 4) had no proper shower and in terms of the facilities you would expect from a hotel of this class - eg spa etc...

A traditional, top class , grand hotel restaurant of the old school in ambience but modern well balanced food. The Head Waiter combined professionalism with courtesy and was a real credit to his profession. His Crepe Suzette was delicious and beautifully cooked at the table. The Sommelier was young and a little too assuming for his years!
