It was my birthday and travelling alone how did it happen? I arrived and was led up to the top of the house with not one but two rooms. I wad in heaven! The bedroom had an enormous bath on a raised platform with another door leading onto a terrace which gave a view over the river to the northern... More

Remarkably quiet room looking onto cathedral. We had a view of the Son et Lumiere from our room. Comfy beds and good, simple breakfast. We were well looked after. We stayed at a weekend but driving around and parking may be a challenge during the week.

We stayed in the Tourelle suite with our two teenage daughters. They loved the novelty of their room with domed ceiling and stained glass window. Both rooms having amazing views over the city. This B&B is brilliantly situated at the back of the cathedral and close to many restaurants. Parking outside was very easy and free for foreign registered vehicles.... More

We had an overnight stop in Le Mans on our way down to SW France. Due to roadworks our satnav got rather confused and we spent 10 minutes negotiating the joys of central Le Mans before we arrived at the Demeure de Laclais and parked immediately in front of it. It is beautifully situated in the old town...you can walk... More

Located directly behind the Cathedral, it is the perfect location for spending time in Le Mans and the surrounding area. The owners are most hospitable and we received a very warm welcome on our arrival. We had a wonderful sleep on both nights and the breakfast was both fresh and tasty. The homemade jam was particularly flavoursome and the pot... More

A really lovely chambre d'hote run by a lovely couple. Large room, comfortable bed and a great location. Would strongly recommend it! Good breakfast and parking outside the place, NOTE: the parking (normally 3 euros minimum) is free for all non-french registered cars - a great idea!

The B&B is located right next to the Cathedral in the wonderful medieval part of town. We stayed in Cyrano, which is very large, clean and comfortable. The hostess seemed determined not to speak English and was less than helpful in offering suggestions for dinner, simply pointing to a tray of cards on the table. We arranged for breakfast at...

My wife and I stayed here at the end of a business trip in northern France. We did not know much about the lovely old center of Le Mans or its nightly illuminations but decided to drop in "on spec". Eric and Brigitte made us very welcome and gave us some very helpful advise. As other reviewers have commented this... More
