“A well-sited and comfortable hotel but expensive for what you get”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

This is a charming hotel with glorious views over the beach and river estuary. The room we had was comfortable and well placed and the bathroom very well appointed apart from a missing bulb and shade and a broken shade over the mirror. The bed was excellent, as was the service.

BUT: We felt the price was high for such a simple hotel and there was too much furniture in the room - we found it difficult to work the lights which led to a very unpleasant encounter with the Proprietor due to a note we left at reception saying that we were missing some lights: instead of simply explaining that the lights did not work as one would have expected and demonstrating how it should be done, the proprietor adopted a hectoring and rude tone which left us in no doubt as to what he thinks of his guests. Nothing was done about the bathroom lights before we left. My husband had planned to have a swim but we took one look at the pool, decided it was far too small as there was already one person in it and it smelt far too strongly of chlorine. We would not return to this hotel and would certainly not recommend it to our friends.

A curious hotel which is clearly made up of a series of old houses cleverly knocked into a hotel. Chic and fairly stylish it is clean and bright. Bedrooms on the average-sized size and comfortable. Large towels in the bathroom with plentiful hot water and above average toiletries. Over-bath shower in our room (33) and a bidet and sink; WC next door. The view of the sea was rather restricted and other rooms at the back would simply have sight of other rooftops. Public rooms limited but comfortable nonetheless. Somewhat pushy lass in the bar on the Sunday who persistently tired to get us to but things. She didn't get the hint but she may be on commission. Breakfast was OK - decent choice but bite-sized croissant and pastries. The swimming pool is just too small for comfort even when it's just you and your wife - when other get there it all gets a bit crowded. At about 4m x 3x (one depth) it's been crowbarred into the available space. Not much room to sit and lounge and relax. Sauna and hamman are OK but the entire spa area smacks of act of desperation by the hotel to makes itself upmarket. Didn't try and of the treatments so can't comment. So far so middling. The shock comes in the some of the prices. Oysters in the bar at 22 Euros for 12 which was and is almost extortion given that they're much cheaper elsewhere. The sauna (or hamman) is 15 Euros per person per half hour session. This is nothing short of highway robbery and what added insult to injury was that there are no signs anywhere advising (a) charges apply and (b) what they are. We expected the to be free as our Brittany Ferries brochure alluded as such (the pool is free and it gave the impression so were the sauna and hamman) with only treatments at cost. Being presented with bill (and incorrect at that) left a somewhat sour taste. No restaurant but a few decent eateries in the village. The Captain has the best views, la Palue the most welcoming staff and la Pot de Beurre the best food (despite it being unprepossessing). Good walks locally and an interesting coastline. Not a bad hotel overall but care needs to be taken if using it. The transparent plastic chairs in the bedroom and the illuminated plastic (mock plaster) gnome were just plain tacky though.

Room Tip: Demand one with a sea-view. Do not be put off.

We'd made the reservation via Chateau hotels and it appeared when we got there that the type of room we had reserved had not been recognised and we were led in the direction of a room high up at the back of the hotel. On pointing out - and demonstrating - that we'd reserved a waterfront room, it turned out that they had none of those rooms left which ended happily as they provided a slightly larger room than we'd reserved. No restaurant, but they offer to book local restaurants for you and hold the menus on-site. Parking is roadside about 100m away. The hotel has been extended a little since our previous visit, and continues to seem nicely set-out and furnished in a fresh and modern manner. Breakfast was fine.

We had taken advantage of a promotional deal to cover our two nights b&b, but I huess I should make the point that in the absence of that , I might think that value was not the strongest part of their proposition. If you want to visit the Abers, this is a decent base from which to do it.

I found this hotel in a 2003 edition of Cote Ouest magazine which gave it rave reviews, I booked a room for four nights and then spotted the recent poor reviews on this site. I urge anyone who has read those reviews to ignore them. This hotel is a delight. It is one of the most relaxing and comfortable places we have ever stayed in. We stayed in two different rooms - number 1 is a very smart, comfy suite with fabulous views across the bay. No 41 was a little less stunning (but half the price) but still very comfortable with the same degree of comfort. The beds are comfortable. The decor is stylish yet things have been thought through so wardrobes are spacious, the showers work and the water pressure is good and the temperature constant. You actually want to use the bathroom products. The sheets are pure cotton and the blankets warm and there are enough good lights and reading lights. The breakfast is simple - if I was picky I would ask that the fruit bowl be a little more imaginative and perhaps include some museli or granola as a choice - but the breads are fresh and the jams seem home made. The service is delightful - nothing is too much trouble, Presented with a carrier bag of sloes we picked nearby the receptionist quickly agreed to store them in the fridge. Wifi is available throughout the hotel and the connection is free. If you ask for a bottle of water it arrives cold, with quirky glasses on a stylish tray and a little dish of sweets. There are attractive areas to sit in throughout the ground floor. The location is stunning....the decked terrace faces the bay of Aber Wrach with its little boats and two small quiet beaches and at night the sun sets in front of the hotel and you can sit sipping delicious muscadet and star gaze on a clear night. We did not use the spa other than for a very quick swim and in truth the pool is more intimate than one might like, but the jets work and there are comfy cushions to loll in. I really fail to understand the negative reviews of this hotel...

Despite the location is remarkably beautiful unfortunately this hotel was my worst experience ever in terms of service:
- nobody received us at the reception for at least 10 mins
- once in the room we realized that the door was working not properly, we asked for having someone to repair it, nobody came till when i had to go to the reception to complain...at the end one man came, he pushed the door with the sholder, he finally closed the door and he said the door was perfect so why we were complaining (!)
- in the meantime we were still waiting for a confirm from the reception about a dinner reservation in an hotel nearby we asked for...nothing...i went to look for the receptionist and i found her who was serving the tables at the hotel rest (multitasking!). I asked news about our reservation and she said she forgot to call!!!'
- the day after i went to formally complain to the director and he started to shout that for him everything was good. i replied i was the client and he should at least listen to me and he said that if i were the client he was the owner and he i wanted i could leave hotel.i could not believe it
- finally the room: the door of the bathroom was sliding, but with no handle...almost not pissible to close it properly...bye bye privacy
- in other words a disaster

This was a truly special stay that we always think back upon. We stayed for four nights in the villa les anges which is a serviced apartment. You can grab breakfast over by the hotel (short walk) and they clean up the room, but are otherwise left alone in your apartment. Our bedroom had fantastic views out onto the sea from the bedroom and a nice bathroom which had a see-through to the bedroom and the sea. The little kitchen was great for buying good French food at the local supermarket and preparing / storing it.

Right across the street, there is a charming little French restaurant, the Capitan. In general, we found a lot of good places to eat if you drive around a bit. Be sure to have a car with you, but I think everyone does in this part of France. We would go again and again!

My wife and I stayed at L'Hotel la Baie des Anges for 4 nights in early July. The visit did not get off to a good start. I had booked a 'Capitaine vue Mer' room which, from the website looked pretty good - not massive, but light and airy with a good sea view. However, when we arrived we were shown into our room. I have seen bigger broom cupboards! It was dark and depressing, hardly what was represented on the web. I refused to accept it but was met with a rather unsympathetic receptionist. In the end, we decided to pay another €40 a night for a lighter and bigger room. However on the last night we had to use the 'broom cupboard' because of a prior booking in our larger room.
Breakfast was good with friendly service and we chilled out in the lounge area when the weather was poor.
However we refused to pay for the hamman/sauna - I have never had to pay for something like this in any other hotel.

This place is set in a lovely bay, with great views. It's peaceful and offers pretty good service. But choose your room carefully and be prepared for additional costs for extras (and bad weather!).
