“Peace at last!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2008

We booked this hotel as a rest and relaxation after 3 days in Disney, Paris and it was exactley that.

We have a 5 year old and although the hotel was a 10 minute drive from the restaurants and bars we all enjoyed ourselves. The best beach was a 2 minute coast walk away and although we didn't have much of a view we had breakfast overlooking the sea. The staff were helpful and attentive and the overall experience was exactley what we wanted.

The only thing i could complain about was that we picked an area which prides itself on its fishing and we don't eat fish so had a few difficulties on the food side, but that was our fault and nobody elses.

All in all a holiday is what you make and we would definatley use this hotel again!

  • Liked — The view of the sea and the walk to the beach
  • Disliked — It was a little way out from the towns
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled with family

misrepresentation on the website and the brochure. No picture window with a view of the sea but a bed in the old reception area, still with its banquette and bar. To see the sea (just) one had to stand on the seat and look over the adjacent house.
No hair dryer. No hook for shower or curtain or cubicle but had to sit in big corner bath.
Only Cocopops on offer for breakfast cereal and wriknly (fresh!) fruit.
Not in Batz sur Mer but in next settlement, so hard to find and treck to restuarant.
Surely not 3* 2007?!

  • Disliked — not 3* and not a seaside room at all - stuffed into the old reception area!

We booked last minute: three nights at Le lichen.
The room: We got the last room left: in the basement,room 12, '"but very quiet". Not entirely true. No oceanview for us but legs from people using the footpath next to the hotel. Since I didn't want the room to be pitch dark I didn't close the shutters entirely. Result: I woke up several times due to the light with sensor next to the footpath. And there was a spare toliet next to our room wich was used quite frequently. Our room had a bathtub but no attached shower or showercurtain.
They cover the matresses with some plastic sheet wich made me sweat like a ...
Hotel: Nice, clean, truely friendly staff, nice breakfast area and bar with billiard. Backyard ends in the dunes. Nice coastal line.
Town: it's a bit out of town and really quiet, if you want your peace it's great. Not flooded with tourists If you want some action or have kids this might not be your thing. Little deserted beaches but watch the tide. There's a giant beach in nearby La Baule but check with the price of beachchairs (kachin)
Breakfast is French, fresh and not included. No restaurant!
For the room we stayed in I found it quite a lot of money. For just a short quiet time it might be your kind of place.

  • Liked — quiet surroundings, little charming hotel with friendly staff
  • Disliked — room in basement, no comfy bed
