Shared this fabulous hotel with the Polish Euro football team but even with the extra security it was still a fantastic place to stay. The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. 5 star luxury without a doubt with spectacular rooms both front and back. Comprehensive self serve breakfast with unlimited... More

Visited in June 2016 bed and breakfast. Firstly the positives. Great location on beach although we didn't use the facilities there, very smart, good restaurant as you would expect, excellent breakfasts. Service was generally excellent. On the negative side, apart from the fact that there is no parking unless you play 25 euro for valet service, the huge let-down was... More

Spent 4 nights at this hotel. Service and food all excellent but rooms need updating. Heavy security in evidence as Polish National Soccer team staying here for Euros 2016. Nice pool and well kept gardens with no road noise. However, a 17 euro a night jockey parking fee seemed extortionate.

My wife and I were here again for a long weekend having come here in June last year. We booked a junior suite on the first floor (when you book, ask for a room on a refurbished floor as not all the floors have been refurbished). The room was pretty much perfect with great views to the sea, a lot... More

I stayed there last time when I was attending a wedding and the previous time was more than 20 years ago. Everything is different but everything is the same. L'hermitage desserves its Palace reputation. If I had to be picky I would say that the room was a bit small for the price but I had to take what was... More

Excellent hotel, one of the best beds I have had. Quite area, you could sleep well. Lobby bar was mostly closed at the time needed.

Beautiful palace style hotel, contemporary and very chic. Well located on Le Baule right in front of the beach and very quite zone. Although you can walk to city center in minutes. Room was spacious with beach and pool view. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended for couples.

The room was nice but perhaps 4* quality, although the lobby, bar definitely looked 5*. The room was nice if a little old, and the view of the beach was pleasant. Room service was dependable but outrageously expensive (40€ each for breakfast, was it?) and while the food was very good, there was not much of it. The bar made... More

Do not expect a cheapbar bill,however I do think that two cokes by the pool for 20 euros is a little steep! That said if you stay at this level and enjoy the ambiance so what!!... More
