Today we take the Lonely Planet "Pays Des Abers" driving tour having booked their recommended hotel Baie Des Anges. This hotel has "flash" specials and we have taken on which reduces the cost from the most expensive we have stayed in to the cheapest. Will it be any good though?
The drive though is great as the weather has fined and warmed up some. Glorious scenery and odd things like the menhirs.
As it turned out the hotel Baie Des Anges at L'Aber Warch is excellent with a great sized room, sea views, free aperitif, and included breakfast and friendly service. There is even an iPhone music player in the room. What more could you ask for? Drinks on the terrace watching the sunset? Oh yes, certainly sir.
Dinner is not available at the hotel so we have four within 500m of which there are three to chose from based on Tripadvisor recommendations. One we cannot find, the second is closed which leaves the Captain, a seafood place which looks pretty good so we book dinner for 8pm.
The Captain looks a bit different when we get back for dinner. The place is heaving and clearly it's hot work for the staff. We can recommend the oysters and the moule frites (mussels and chips) but the lobster entree is small and really not worth the price. It also seems there was a later price to pay which was probably attributable to the lobster. Unhappy face.
