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.
Easy to find Could take credit cards we tried three paid cash
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Staff were friendly and ensured you felt most welcome. They really put themselves out. nothing at all
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
It was easy to find and served our purpose well.
Great location close to town centre and local sights of interest - with easy parking. Staff very helpful
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.
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.
location very small room
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.
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.
The location..it really was by the beach!, And the restaurant, which was excellent
M. Hulot vacation spot with small town beach atmosphere. Good restaurant on site. Friendly and helpful staff.
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.
Being on the beach, breakfast, nice restaurants nearby, friendly service everywhere. Nice walks. Clean sea water, test results displayed.
great location. right on the beach rooms a bit small, we wouldn't stay for more than a couple of nights
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.
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 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.
Friendly staff and very clean rooms
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
The room and the sea view
The location is great and locals freindly. Tea/coffee making facilities in room would have been nice.
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.
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.
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.
Very Quiet and clean accomodation, near many shops. Far from train station if no personnal transportation.
Convenient locations when travelling by car (always close to main roads. Too expensive for such basic accommodation.
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.
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.
location closed from 12pm to 6pm; power cut at 10pm - no apology, no mention
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
Good functional hotel - ideal for an overnight stop. The only problem was that it was very hard to find, even with the sat nav, since the hotel is situated in a relatively new industrial estate.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the air conditioning was a welcome surprise for a French Hotel in this region. The building was very appropriate for the woodland surroundings We found it very difficult to locate although we were advised by the staff that signs are to be erected in the very near future. We also disliked the fact that there was no where on site to have refreshments before 1900 hours at the earliest.
The staff are very helpful, cheerful and accomodating. Nothing is too much trouble and the rooms are immaculate. Signage is bad but look for the adjacent chocolate factory.
Good hotel for business.
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.
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.
Good room with small balcony. Helpful staff. Area a little seedy and lacked restaurants.
Good location, large and comfortable room with a wonderful street view from the balcony. It is recommended to stay in.
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
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.
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.
Pleasant service. A slightly hard bed
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
breakfast and friendly staff
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.
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.
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.
A friendly welcome in a delightful setting with the sea in the distance beyond the carefully tended gardens. Comfortable room, with a real balcony and sea views. Good food. The room was a bit noisy, both for sounds from other rooms, and from it's own bathroom/loo.
The sorrounding,interior, atmoshere and amazing garden.
The room, the surroundings, especially the gardens, the food, the room service, the swimming pool, its proximity to the beach and to the walking trail into town. The walls between the bedrooms were a bit thin and it was possible to hear our neighbours showering, using bathroom etc.
Easy to find
Secure parking over night. Very freindly staff. Our room overlooked the main road out of Pornic,which was noisy. No air conditioning in the room so we opened the window for fresh air, but did not sleep too well because of the traffic noise. We did request, after checking in, would it be possible to move to a room at the back of the hotel,overlooking car-park. We were told that the Hotel was full.
Close to centre and the port and restaurants/bars etc. Private parking very useful. Our room at the back, overlooking the car park was very quiet, front rooms would probably suffer some traffic noise as there seemed to be constant traffic in Pornic. The only gripe was the very, very small shower cubicle, otherwise ok for the price.
a very freindly welcome, comfortable no
DWe onlyuseditas an overnight stay during transit.Itwas ideal for that purpose
This hotel was comfortable, although fairly basic. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Private off road parking free of charge. Lift to upper floors definitely a bonus. Hotel located uphill and 5 minutes' brisk walk from the centre, which is fine if you are fit, but one of our party struggled with the walking. Therefore I would not recommend this particular hotel for elderly or disabled people.
The staff were very helpful, the car park and location of the hotel were convenient for Pornic centre and it was very clean and neat.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The hotel was only a five minute walk from the bustle of Pornic and the many restaurants, also only a few minutes to walk to the most beautulful beach.
Clean, modern and good value Probably noisy if your room was at the front.
