La Baule / Pornichet is an upmarket resort which has miles of wonderful beach with soft white sand on the huge crescent shaped bay. Most of the upmarket hotels and casino are about a mile to the north but it is a pleasant walk.
The hotel is not quite on the sea front but within a very short walk with some rooms and the restaurant with a view. Our room was on the back - a normal Ibis room - but had the benefit of a small balcony which caught the morning sun.
The restaurant has the usual buffet breakfast to suite most tastes but it is in the evening that the restaurant sets this hotel apart from many others in the chain.
There is a mighty all-you-can-eat buffet including many types of shellfish, shell fish and meat products which would do justice to a four star hotel. Then combine this with an elegant main course for under €20 and it is a real bargain.
The hotel daily rate is significantly higher than many, but with the location and the upmarket nature of the location it is still good value.
