This was our second stay at L'Hirondelle - they have done extensive renovations since our first stay and it is a huge improvement. The suites are large and modern, the staff and owners super friendly and accommodating, the facilities perfect, even for a group of 12. The location of L'Hirondelle could not be more perfect - opposite the most beautiful...

First of all, we were in the new section just recently renovated. The room was spacious and very cozy, and the kitchen was fully furnished. In terms of location, the guest house is located in front of the bus stop, hence it's very convenient to move around. If you want to dine outside, there are a few restourants nearby as...

We just returned from Praslin island and had a wonderful few days at L'Hirondelle Guesthouse. The location is fantastic if you are looking for self-catering - its close to shops and restaurants, and just across the road from the beautiful beach of Anse Volbert. The bus stop is opposite the guesthouse so if you don't have a car its easy...

Situated a stone's throw from the famous Anse Volbert / Côte d'Or beach, this place is ideally situated - you literally cross the road in your costume and you are on the beach which was always virtually empty when we were there. The warm still waters and powdery white sand makes you want to stay in the water for hours!...

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was a good experience, as the price is affordable and that is difficult to find on Praslin! The best restaurant we found is next door, and it is safe walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants and beaches. Our only problem being that our room was directly beside the road and the bus...

We stayed with 4 adults in the very spacious villa. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a huge kitchen and nice living. You can easily stay here with 6 persons which makes it an great value for money on the seychelles. It's clean, the beds are good, the shower good, it has a small safe (and they have a guard)....

The website of this place seemed a bit weird, and you couldn't make a reservation without sending a fax to confirm the debit of part of the cost, so we almost got discouraged by it, but don't be, it's completely trustworthy and our room was there ready upon our arrival, with a very friendly receptionist! Big rooms right across the...

The extraordinary friendly reception of all the personell impressed us. The hotel is not a luxuary place but very clean, well planned, spacious apartments and a nice garden, less than a hundred metres from the beach. The hotel offers boat excursions for fishing and/or visits to nearby islands, some of which have nature reserves with guides and walking trails. Our...

we stayed at l'hirondelle without booking, they were very accomodating considering our budget didn't allow for their rate, they graciously helped us out! The room had a balcony looking directly acrros to the marvellous blue lagoon. No tv in the room wich was a bit annoying as we like to stay in touch with the world, and no internet connection...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in April 2009 and were pleased with the accommodation. We were looking for a cheaper, no frills type option (self-catering) so we could actually afford to come to the Seychelles. Avoiding the higher price hotels proves to be difficult and this place jumped out at us on our online search for...
