staff were friendly and eager to help. the food is basic but acceptable. the hotel is located in the city centre next to shopping and a short walk to the beach and promenade area. Not far from the hotel,there is an interesting attraction in the revitalised dock area which is about life on luxury atlantic cruise liners of a bygone era along with world war two submarines on display. the attraction would suit adults and kids from 7 years up. The town is quite at night and parking is in the street and free. The hotel is basic but would make an unusual overnight en route to final destination elswhere. Bed was clean and fresh but rooms were a little jaded and spartan especialy the accordian doors on the toilet and seperate shower. However for the rate charged no real complaints
The staff were particularly friendly and helpful. They kept an eye on our car whilst we cycled part of the eurovelo 6 route. The toilet is behind a fairly flimsy screen and very close to the bed in the bedroom.
I liked the fact that the staff made you welcome from the start, nothing was too much trouble for them. By the time you left, you felt like you had made new friends.
staff are frendly and did the best they could given the fact that building work in the Hotel makes life hard for them. Its fine for the money
Facilities Room was quite small
Exellent location. Close to beach. Within short walking distance of restaurants and shops. Good pools (indoor and outdoor)and spa. Good service. Room (superior)small. Breakfast buffet choice/service not up to usual Barriere Hotels standards. Did not spoil stay.
Superb outdoor pool, very good service
position of hotel facilities good staff very good would be very helpful if breakfast could be included as part of the room rate as this was good but quite expensive
the kindness availability, flexibility and politeness of the staff the evening dress code is a bit tight to my taste but this was a minor inconvenient
very good hotel no
excellent staff. leisure facilities
the association with thalassothérapie the absence of small dishes during the noon period (13-15h)
Easy to find Could take credit cards we tried three paid cash
Nothing Very disappointing, too basic, no-one there when we arrived, had to find out how to book ourselves in via a machine outside. Room poky and claustrophobic. Left after one night even though we had paid for two nights.Depressing room very small window, area poor.
Difficulty in finding hotel using instructions provided on the website.
Freindly reception. Good position for my purpose. Very poor room furnishings. No soft floorcovering, very worn and broken bathroom facilities, iron bedstead. Depressing.
Very good family room, two joining rooms with loads of space & tastefully decorated, each with it's own bathroom. Comfortable beds, well equipped bathrooms & a great view. Brilliant access straight onto beach. Great bar setting with views up & down the beach.Happy, smiley, staff especially Claire. Good parking at the hotel. A really pleasant stay and would definatly like to go back some time.
The room and the sea view
The hotel was superb, food remakable, views over the sea. The bar area requires refurb and seperating from the noise of the casino. The village is quiet at this time of year but we used it as a base and had a great time.
accessability to seafront convenience
The evening meal in the restaurant was excellent A bit disappointed there was no music in the bar on Mon and Tues night. There was in 2006.
The Hotel was very clean and relaxing. We had dinner on one night and breakfast one morning and we had absolutely no complaints. We will be coming back. We have absolutely nothing bad to say and there was nothing we didn't likeabout Hotel du Beryl.
Both the hotel and its bedrooms appeared extremely new and contemporary and would have been well suited to a four star hotel. This was the smartest three star that we stayed in out of four hotels during our week in France. The position directly overlooking the beach was great and we upgraded to a Sea view for an additional 10 euros, which actually gave us a suite with sitting area/sofa bed rather than a standard room. There is also a large free external carpark & internal carpark at the rear of the hotel. Breakfast was basic for 11 euros per person, so was a little of a let down. The flashing Casino signs outside were off putting though did not reflect the hotel interior.
It was a nice hotel, with a wonderful view of the sea, and good for walking. It was very comfortable, and clean, with good food, and for us free wi-fi and indoor parking. we enjoyed our stay very much and would visit again
Friendly staff and very clean rooms
The location is great and locals freindly. Tea/coffee making facilities in room would have been nice.
location very small room
Being on the beach, breakfast, nice restaurants nearby, friendly service everywhere. Nice walks. Clean sea water, test results displayed.
The location is wonderful - exactly what I was hoping for - right on the beach and still many recognisable features from the film M Hulot.The hotel inside is very clean and the room was lovely - cool and the most comfortable bed ever.
Excellent location overlooking beach, decent parking facilities. Very modern facilities and excellent breakfast The service during evening meal was a complete and utter farce, not just our table but the 7 tables near us had problems with orders not turning up, huge delays, some orders turning up twice. The rooms carpets were unwalkable barefoot due to some ancient torture device that was passing for a carpet, the rooms were also far too noisy and should have been soundproofed better.
great location. right on the beach rooms a bit small, we wouldn't stay for more than a couple of nights
The location..it really was by the beach!, And the restaurant, which was excellent
The meal on the terrace and the memories from the film (Hulot) Staff a touch amateurish in the restaurant
The staff were very helpful, and the hotel was in a lovely location right on the beach. The two rooms we booked we far too small to make the stay in this hotel comfortable.
M. Hulot vacation spot with small town beach atmosphere. Good restaurant on site. Friendly and helpful staff.
A lovely hotel in a great location - right on the beach with windows that opened wide to hear the sea at night and look out in the morning. It helped with clear sunny blue skies. Breakfast was good too. The room was spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed the night that we stayed - but staff told us of alternatives as we checked in, which proved to be good.
Nice hotel, brand new in the centre of Saint Nazaire, very close to the sea (5 minutes) and close to a shoppning centre. Big parking facilities around. Friendly staff.
Internet access was great. Loved the fact that the breakfast was included and the breakfast was really good. Loved the design of the hotel. Rooms were small but very comfortable. Excellent value for the price.
La chambre bien agencée. La salle de bain très propre et lumineuse. Le staff charmant. Le petit-déjeuner buffet était surpeuplé! Le staff doit encore prendre ses marques pour être plus rapide (hôtel tout neuf) pour servir les clients.
the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel and room were well equipped to a high standard and very clean only that it would be good if there was more choice of english tv channels and tea available at breakfast
It was easy to find and served our purpose well.
Staff were friendly and ensured you felt most welcome. They really put themselves out. nothing at all
From the moment we arrived until we left, we were made most welcome. We liked the way the staff treated us as people; calling us by name showed a caring attitude. Indeed, you could change the name from Holiday Inn to welcome inn.
It is a new hotel, which makes a difference. Girls at reception were nice and friendly The double-bed was narrow for our liking. Just 1,35 m wide is rarely seen in other hotels now. Also the top cover was as wide as the bed, so it was easy to get cold if any of us pulled the cover a bit to one side
Great location close to town centre and local sights of interest - with easy parking. Staff very helpful
This was a very pleasant experience. Quiet, efficient, friendly + perfect location
This is a trully charming hotel, ideally located and with a relaxed, luxurious feel supported by excellent staff,
Decor and comfort. The staff were attentive and able. Bedroom spacious and well equiped.
The location of the hotel is exellent. Free, good bikes available! The gardens of the hotel were not well maintained and the pavement in the garden was dangerous, uneven and wet/slippery near the bar! Drinks and food in the hotel are expensive.Parking costs 25 euro a day.
The balcony on our room was huge. More like a terrace. Lovely The food and drink were very expensive - €24 for breakfast !!
Outdoor swimming pool at 30 C, excellent room and breakfasts. Able to walk onto the fantastic beach. Very good bar lunches in beautiful hotel Menu's for evening meals food very rich. But used very good restaurent in centre of La Baule,
Very nice location and beautiful old style building Expensive breakfast if one only wants a light breakfast. A simple continental offers (cafe + Croissant) should be made available for those who stay in the hotel.
the ambiance the swimming pool was crowded. no seat available.
Location,helpful staff,bicycles,bar by the pool Lack of dining facilities in the main hotel.High daily parking charges
location and interieur service, kindness, restaurant and breakfast service! We would not recommend this hotel for private guests, its more a conference hotel and for events !!!!
location closed from 12pm to 6pm; power cut at 10pm - no apology, no mention
Ease of booking. interaction with the hotel staff. location in center ville.free parking just out side of the hotel. The breakfast was somewhat simple, I would have prefered more than just one croissont and bread and jam, didn't think it showed good value for the price.
For St Nazaire the hotel was fair value and the location, in a town street, could be convenient if you wanted to be in town during the evening. The opening times as given by the website were inaccurate (they didn't open until 6pm).Poor breakfast. We were lucky with parking which is on the street.
The Hotel was situated in the centre of the town - the owner was very plesant and helpful . There were shops and places to eat in close proximity. An excellent base for exploring the area Only down side was no lift and only breakfast was provided - however there were plenty of places to eat nearby
Location, helpful friendly staff,breakfast ok.
Location, it was close to a venue we wanted to visit! The fact that I had to argue about the rate upon arrival and that the hotel charged us more than what we booked online, based on their claim that the website is wrong.
Quiet and freindly The internet connection was very poor, lost some work due to loss of internet connection, and was informed from the staff that it was due to my PC. Dissapointed in that
Convenient locations when travelling by car (always close to main roads. Too expensive for such basic accommodation.
Very Quiet and clean accomodation, near many shops. Far from train station if no personnal transportation.
Really nice friendly bloke.Spoke excellent English. Room beautiful, lovely design, bathroom fantastic. Don't worry about parking it's easy in streets around, no need to pay directly outside. Would have liked teamaking facility in room
Friendly and convenient/good value for money
Very friendly staff. Eager to help. Very good for touring motorbikes as they can keep you bike in safe storage. \Very good, clean and upto date bathrooms. the 5 star of 2 star hotels.
Comfortable bed, efficient shower, decent towels, central location to shops,restaurants etc Small bedroom,tiny bathroom, musty smell in corridor & stairs
The kindness of the owner or the manager and the modern stile,but very classical of the rooms no
Clean room and great staff
Loved everything about the hotel.Loved the decor position and generally all we wanted. You wouldn't want to be "large" though the bathrooms are small.
Staff are very helpful. Location is good (two minute walk from main street and further 5 mins from the beach). Hotel is a lot nicer than most two stars... decore is nice in rooms and it's very clean and modern.
vriendelijk, schoon, gunstige ligging t.o.v. boulevard zeer kleine badkamer
good location 10 mins walk from beach. excellent breakfast.good to have a balcony daily market outside set up very early
Close to the town and beach. Parking facilities. Friendly staff.
The close proximity to all the amenities including beach, shops, market and restaurants. There was nothing to dislike at all.
We noticed that Hotel Alcyon had a great make-over since our previous visit. The decor is just great and the welcome just as warm as before.
We were very impressed with the quality of the staff and the food and the general setting of the hotel. We did'nt stay long enough to comment but intend to return next year for a longer stay.
The location is great--right on the market square, and only a few blocks from the beach. Good restaurants in the area--we especially liked "Le Loft." Not a fancy hotel, but clean and convenient.
Good quality room with terrace opening onto the town square; however we were first given a room adjacent the elevator -- be careful ! Heating system uncontrollable resulting in a room too warm -- we had to offset this by opening the door to the terrace a little.
Great room with plenty of space, newly refurbished. Breakfast was superb with a huge choice of food. 100 metres from the beach and 150 metres from the main shopping street. Good that it has its own private parking as this is difficult in La Baule.
Receptionist spoke English. Family room pleasant No teamaking facility in bedroom. staircase needed extra rail on last descent for support
Hotel looks perfect, nice stuff at the reception and perfect food Horrible stuff at the breakfast, not very good place, far from the city
Peaceful hotel with large garden near seafront. Very helpful, efficient and welcoming staff. Quite grand, spacious, comfortable bedroom with a large amount of cupboard space and a large bathroom, with good bathrobes. Plus, windows opened fully - very welcome, as in a quiet area. It was a longish walk to the main restaurant area of La Baule. Unfortunately, the private parking is located 50m away, so a worry for anyone like us who is travelling by motorbike. But staff offered to keep an eye on it when we expressed concerns about security overnight.
The staff is very friendly and competent. Flexible about having children and pet. Great location and great town with very guest friendly people
Food excellent and staff very efficent. Very good location Parking in the hotel carpark should not be charged for
The staff were fantastic nd teh hotel very comfortable. We only had the breakfast, which we thought was decidedly average but very expensive. We looked at the dinner menu that seemed extremely expensive
Nice staff, I booked for wrong dates, they were kind enough to call me and change the dates for the same price. I realized, only when they called, that I have wrong dates on the card. On the last day, they were changing the carpet, and I am allergic to glue smell.
The staff were wonderful & very helpful, especially Benidict, she helped us sort out a problem with our car & get a hire car, she is a credit to your Hotel & we can not thank her enough, thankyou. The hotel was fine but was not keen on area
breakfast was fair, rooms were good size. swimming pool a plus.thou far from most the beach but with a car its great. no complains
arrived at 11am and was given my room at no extra charge. Very helpful and friendly staff, I will certainly choose to stay here again.
decent breakfast, good sound isolation, clean
Hotel Manager was friendly and very helpful. His knowledge of English was very good. Parking was free and very plentiful. I ccan't fault the hotel for value for money.
The location not to far from the railway station. Bus stop in front of the hotel and just 2 min down on the front of the town hall are bus stops of various busses
Pleasant service. A slightly hard bed
Good room with small balcony. Helpful staff. Area a little seedy and lacked restaurants.
Staff were frendly and location was good. Plus garage facility was good(but the whole town socially seems to close down from 10pm onwards and not much choice in restaurants in the town) Unfortunately the shower in our room was not to the usual 2 star standard. It was an old bath with a shower hose that you could not fix on the wall so you can stand under the shower. Also plug top was missing on the bath and no shower curtain.
breakfast and friendly staff
I stayed here recently and I really liked it. The room was very comfortable, clean and quiet. The staff were very helpful and polite and it was close to the sea front which was great. Overall, I thought it was excellent for the price and would highly recommend it. No
Good location, large and comfortable room with a wonderful street view from the balcony. It is recommended to stay in.
Decent budget hotel. Room smelled like smoke. Staff didn't speak English, so have your French/phrasebook ready. Nice windows that open all the way. Big bathtub and plenty of hot water. Good location, near the city hall and on the main shopping street. Not far from the submarine docks that they've converted into a tourist attraction, comfortable distance from the beach. About as cheap as you can get in Saint Nazaire. Smelled of smoke despite requesting a nonsmoking room.
Friendly staff Thin walls
the owners were very friendly & helpful looks very grubby from the outside and not a very pleasant town
Good Breakfast Room was facing a road cross junction and the traffic was really noisy.
Good hotel for business.
Excellent The best
Room was of a good size Breakfast offering was not refreshed for later diners
Staff are brilliant, food was simply excellent and a fine selection of beer and wines
Located near the train station, 20 minute walk to town & the dockyards, though well served by numerous buses. Very helpful staff.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful. We had shipped luggage ahead to the hotel and it was waiting for us in our room. The resturant was also very good. Location is right across from the Gare, yet the hotel is very quiet.
Mr Alliot was very amiable and very sympathetic to the fact that neither I nor my husband are very agile due to our ages and was very helpful with transporting our luggage to our room Unfortunately our room was on the second floor and there was no lift which was very difficult for my husband who has a chest complaint but we have been assured that if we wish to stay another time that we should request a room on the ground or 1st floor.
