ALL THOSE STARS AND NO A/C - sleepless nights
NO A/C!! Impossible to sleep at night. Needs updating. WE chose this hotel because it is a part of "Relais Chateaux". It shouldn't be... Not that it was so bad, but there are certain thing one MUST have if you want to be part of RC... A/C is a basic... We could not sleep at night... Too hot (and this was in May) - and when we complained, they gave us a floor mounted FAN??!! all that money and a FAN??!! They apologised and said that NONE of the rooms have A/C. When we tried with the windows open, we were eaten by mosquitos. Had I known in advance, i would NOT have booked here. Besides that, Bathrooms were quite old - Aluminium shower enclosure with PVC doors - like in old motels from the 90's. The towels were also very worn and old. like they have seen TOO MANY washings. Breakfast was quite nice and the location is good. It is worth paying more and getting a room with A/C of even going down in quality, but with A/C. On checkout, I shared my thoughts with the reception and they offered me a free upgrade (also without A/C) if we ever return (slim chance). I hope this review is not removed by the Hotel

Short stay
Stayed here for a night before starting a business trip. The location is fantastic on the beachfront promenade. Service and comfort is exactly what you'd expect from a R&C property. Don't like the fact that there is a casino so much

Comfortable elegant hotel.
Wonderful very attentive staff. Elegant, upscale accommodations. Very classy hotel but overcharge for parking, we think, and they need a better way of communicating to guess how to pull up to the hotel since there is no car entry and you must unload from the street. The people they hire are absolutely top rate and make for a very comfortable stay.

Nice hotel in great location but tired
Stayed 2 nights in September 2017. Location good, food good, but it's a bit tired in some areas. Had to pay euros 15 per day to park the car in the empty hotel car park. It was very quiet and a bit soul less. We moved rooms because the first room, which was advertised as a suite, had knee high small windows. The second room was better but external lights right outside our bedroom came on during the night and light up our room and we were unable to switch them off. Beds were dipping in he middle. We wouldn't go back. An expensive stay and they get every euro out of you. Better to stay at the sister chateau at the other end of La Baule which has had a refurb. It looks really nice. We would stay there next time.

Great hotel in a beautiful seaside resort
A lovely hotel full of character; it was a house once upon a time. The staff are very good; nothing was too much trouble and everyone was smiling and attentive. The restaurant was excellent and the waiter who served me made some nice recommendations. They even served oysters for breakfast, but at 28 EUR you should get something special right? Overall, a very nice place to stay. La Baule is generally very expensive and this place is no exception to that. The beautiful 9km beach is just a few metres from the hotel and the grounds have a lot of mature trees and shrubs. They also provide bicycles to use (free of charge).
