Absolutely loved this hotel, the history and decor is beautiful. The majority of the stuff do speak English or can understand. The house keeping however will not speak English so make sure you learn "turn down" when she knocks to ask. Food and breakfast was fantastic. The only let down was to do with some of the amenities or services.... More

The hotel, has nice public spaces and a good pool. The staff are friendly and very helpful. That is where it ends though. It is expensive for the property on offer, our bedroom was adequate but no more, at more than 300 euros per night we have stayed in better hotels with better facilities. As for breakfast they must be... More

The interior is very outdated but I was able to overlook this because of the impeccable service within the hotel. The first night at L'Eden was also brilliant service and food. I couldn't fault it.

Having stayed in the Royal the previous year, we decided to try the Hermitage this year and were not disappointed.

L'Hermitage is a very nice hotel right at the beach of La Baule. The pool area and the especially the beach restaurant are wonderful. The room I had was rather outdated and couldn't keep up with the rest of the property. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast good.

Our room was beautiful. The location is lovey- on the end of the promenade within easy reach of the town, close to the beach with a pool in front. Breakfast was beautiful and the staff very helpful even with our 8 month old- high chairs has oil cloth tailored covers on so were perfectly clean each meal.

Lovely, quiet hotel on the beach. My large king room, was not facing the beach, but the breeze and the sunset were lovely. The hotel staff were are kind and helpful even though I am not French and my French is not great. The beach bar and bar in the main hotel both had music which was a nice treat.

Escaping family duties after 10 days in an uncomfartable country house in Brittany we whisked away to fancy La Baule.
