28 - Blvd Du Maréchal Leclerc, Saint-Jean-de-Monts, Pays de la Loire, France
47.1km from STATION Pornic
"When my wife told me she had booked three nights in a French hotel with such an English name I must admit to some trepidation. The location was always going to be perfect for a three night stopover coming up from Pays Basque to St Malo but why the name? I should not be concerned with such trivialities! On arrival one immediate advantage was the parking. Right outside the front door is a fairly large public car park, although Le Robinson has its own secure car park too. The Receptionist was charming and spoke very good English. It transpired that she was the Great Grand-daughter of the founders but she said nobody in the family knew why the hotel was called such. I immediately conjured up several theories regarding the last year of WW2 and certain liaisons going on...! The accommodation was very good and we had ordered a balcony room. The balcony, albeit with views overlooking a minor road and the entrance to the private car park, was large and well appointed as was the room. The restaurant was fantastic. Plenty of choices and a wonderful atmosphere. Also very busy but we were served helpfully and efficiently. Food was superb and I fear I rather over-indulged which was easy to do! Eventually, each evening, after returning to our room via the comfortable bar, we found the bed very comfortable and slept well each night. Breakfast, although of the continental buffet style, was well thought out with no shortage of any item. As soon as individual items got even slightly low the containers were replenished. Plenty of choice of hot and cold beverages. I can only come up with one minor irritation - not a complaint - during our stay. The rooms have tea and coffee making facilities but we were not given milk. It’s actually quite rare for us to use these facilities anyway so it didn’t really make a lot of difference, although when we arrived after a five and a half hour drive I did actually fancy a coffee. The location of the hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the beach (make sure you take the first on the left by the pirate ship - about the third exit if driving - or it becomes a 45 minute walk!) and about 10 from the shopping centre in the opposite direction. The hotel is right opposite the fire and ambulance station but there was no disturbance as there is a dual carriageway in between. Not a gripe about the hotel but the beach-front restaurants, in the main, will not just serve a glass of wine to you but will expect you to order a meal. We have experienced this attitude every time we have been here. In the end we headed back to the hotel and enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine in the bar. Superb! Which is probably a good word to finish this review on - superb! I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and give it five stars in any genre you care to name. Well done Le Robinson and well done to my wife for finding it. We’ll be back!"
"Stayed here for two nights on our way to the Loire. On arrival we remembered staying here before, but the outstanding memory was the food. We were certainly not disappointed. We ate in the restaurant both nights and the food was first class as was the service. I think we were the only English speakers in the (always) full restaurant, but we were given a Menu in English and the one that was not in English was translated by one of the young staff. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We asked the gentleman on reception (the owner) if he would be kind enough o call a Logis we wanted to stay at for our next destination, as my French is not good enough when the recipient answers in "full flow" ! He had to try three before we found one and was so helpful I would recommend this Logis to anyone who likes good French cooking and a good bed for the night."
"We stayed here for three nights and were very happy with the hotel and its excellent restaurant. Our room, away from the main road, was spacious, beds comfortable, good air conditioning, adequate size bathroom and separate loo. We had dinner each night at the hotel. There were several different menus or a la carte so plenty of choice for all tastes and budgets. I thought the food was very good and the restaurant was pretty much full every night we were there. The hotel is only about 15-20 mins walk from the fantastic sandy beach and there were lots of restaurants down there where you could have some lunch. We hired bikes one day and cycled along the very good cycle trails along the seafront and through the forest up to Notre Dame de Monts. Good fun and mostly flat! The hotel staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. This is a family owned hotel over some generations and family members are very active in the day to day management. "

16, avenue des Pays de Monts, Saint-Jean-de-Monts, Pays de la Loire, France

"On a mini break via Brittany Ferries, luckily this was the last hotel and thankfully only one night. From the moment we stepped into the hotel we were met by the old French way, rude and arrogant! No welcoming staff here, nor a Bonjour, Hello - nowt. As we normally do, we always say " I know we are early but can we check in now. What we received as a reply was, "check in time is four o'clock", so I merely said, ok but can we at least check in now and leave our luggage? What she then did was incredible ; she held up four fingers and and uttered " check in time is four o'clock"!!! At that point I decided to leave it as I was about to explode. We came back at around three o'clock and luckily there was an older gentleman on reception who informed us that the room was still not ready but would be soon, we decide to have a drink on the terrace and wait. We went out to the terrace by the pool and was immediately accosted by a waiter who informed us in no uncertain manner that this are was reserved for diners and we were not allowed to sit there. Bearing in mind the dinning room was closed by then, it was not set up for dinning nor was any diners sitting there! It get's worse. On checking in around 3.30 we then asked about dinner in the evening. Again without any apology we were bluntly told the dinning room was full that evening. When I remonstrated with the then younger male receptionist he told me that we were only on B&B and should have booked "complete", which I took to be DBB at the time of booking? I explained as this wasn't a choice given, and as this trip had been booked at least six months in advance how could we make a booking, and why ? Deaf ears, so again decided best to leave it. After we returned from eating elsewhere, guess what, yep the dining was not full and there was no one on the terrace outside! so much for being full. We then retired to our un- air-conditioned room, the first in our trip to then be rudely wakened up at 6.00am the next morning by the noisiest refuge collection I have ever experienced; yes our room was at the back of the hotel on the first floor right over the bin area. Breakfast in the morning needless to say was extremely average, with yet again the most unhappy, un smiling staff we had encountered. Not an experience you wish for and certainly we will not return. If thme hotel management can be bothered to read this review can I respectfully suggest to the that proper staff training really is a must these days and finally "It's not what you say, it's how it is said""
"I have been to this hotel and spa before and can only recommend it. The treatments available and the ambience are a balm for body and soul. The hotel is perfectly situated and the restaurant offers excellent food and service. I really enjoyed my stay and felt well rested on my return home. "
"We booked via the Brittany Ferry tour of French Atlantic Islands and were thus B&B. Seeing the slightly isolated location (for the time of year) we asked to dine and fortunately there was space. Room comfortable but reached by what semed to be a single small lift which seemed to be hijacked by white Robed persons on the way to and from the basement spar. We enjoyed our dinner but found the breakfast rather a scrum. Very satisfactory for a one night stop-over but you would need to be a spar fanatic to want to base your holiday here. Good safe parking."

"Having stayed in a camp site at 34 to 36 deg weather, this hotel was a saving grace to our family. A bright spacious room for us and our 2 boys. Air conditioning, space to move around, a terrace overlooking the boulevard and the magnificent ferris wheel to the right. Amazing staff who did everything they could to accommodate us. They had enough English to understand any question we put to them. Had dinner which was fantastic and my mussels were amazing. Private car pack put the back and a walk away from the beach. Would recommend highly. Would give 10 if I could."
"absolutely love the food in the restaurant of L'Espadon..it is consistently good. Located at the end of the eating street..it is well worth passing the other establishments for.They have a €20 3 course dinner menu that is really good value and always great choices..last night our table had Oysters, Fois Gras..Caesar Salad and Goats Cheese..to start..mains included Swordfish, Duck..Conchiglioni and a seafood and prawn mix...all delicious..looking forward to our next visit already!!"
"Booked over the Internet and ordered breakfast. When we arrived at the hotel, the Internet had only taken payment for the room! Comfortable room and balcony but no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast very good with full selection for all. Only problem is when something runs out, you have to go and ask for a refill. The staff must know how many are having breakfast and therefore how often to replenish. "

"We stayed a few days with friends and can recommend Le Manoir. Our standard room was small but very comfortable. Excellent shower. Our friends had a room for disabled guests. It was more spacious with a huge walk in shower. The side entrance was great for the wheelchair. The hotel is centrally located with parking right next to the hotel. There are restaurants within a few minutes walk The owners are so friendly and did everything to make our stay. Breakfast was a good quality buffet. We are returning in a few months and are looking forward to using the pool. Wifi was good, even if we had to sign in each time"
"We stayed a couple of days with friends and found all the staff, owners to intern welcoming, helpful and friendly. The room (standard Comfort room) was clean and functional and the breakfast good local produce that made a great start to the day. Short walk to a couple of really nice restaurants ... and more importantly, short walk back. :) We will be going back when the weather is warmer so we can use the swimming pool"
"We came to France as we have a wedding to go to, we just stop by for a night only ....oh laaaaaa!!!! Don’t have too much to say about this place expect lack of sleep....my husband 1.80 cm having his feet hanging out from the tiniest bed I have ever seen in a hotel and poor quality pillows ( see foto below). So our “ Good morning” was back and neck aches for both of us ....considering that I’m 5 months pregnant and so at 4.30 am I was reading my book as I felt so reluctantly uncomfortable. What I am suggesting here is to provide bigger and comfortable beds and pillows to your guests, it’s important to get a good sleep and feeling rested : especially on holidays! Staff is very polite and a pretty pool to hang out .....Merci à vous ....Au revoir"

"We stayed here for three nights. It is in a great location and all staff were welcoming and friendly. Room quite small but all very clean with a comfortable bed. The breakfast is tasty with a good selection of cereals, bread and croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room but a selection of teas and coffees are freely available in the reception area. A good stay!! "
"Overall a great hotel. Great rooms, but lacking a fridge. The location is fabulous, only a few minutes walk to the harbour and a supermarket is just up the road. There is also a train to Nantes airport. The staff were fabulous, they spoke good english and were very helpful. As I’m a diabetic I had to store my medication in the fridge at the bar, but the staff were great about it and it wasn’t a problem. The breakfast was a bit limited, but the croissants were lovely. We have a very nice stay and enjoyed our holiday"
"Only stayed one night with family had 3 rooms in all but was good value for money. Tip, book your car parking space at time of making booking i.e spaces are limited and are an additional cost,but pretty necessary as very limited on street parking as both entrances are on a one way system."

"We booked last minute on our way back home travelling through France. The location is great, nice walk through the forest to the beach. Nice indoor pool and there is also a jacuzzi. Safe car park. Extremely clean and new looking room and bathroom with air-con which was more than required with the 35C temperature outside! Breakfast was really good an generous, the best we have had in all places we stopped! Dinner was also very good. The staff and owner are super kind and friendly, she even took my large bag of glass recycling from me that I had been carrying in the car searching for a recycling centre since we left our rental house . Definitely recommended!"
"This is an upmarket motel-type hotel. The rooms are basic in their layout (double bed and ensuite shower/toilet) but no comfy chairs or large balcony. The rooms are spacious, air-conditioned and clean. The location is ideal for exploring the area, with a cycle-track close to the hotel. Indoor medium swimming pool that is new and well maintained. Small sun-bathing area. Very good restaurant. Excellent breakfasts available."
"The hotel is well appointed. Rooms are basic but more than sufficient for a stay by the beach. Be sure to walk down to the beach from the hotel. The day we went we were the only people on the entire beach. This is a very special part of France and not to be missed and this hotel is in a good location to visit the area. We ate the hotel restaurant it was very good too. Great rooms for a family."
