Run by a delightful couple this hotel is very good value for money. We were upgraded to a double bedroom suite, the decor is in keeping with the age and beauty of the building, its beautiful and very tastefully done. The bed was very comfortable, it had a great shower and we had a superb view. The only downside is... 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... More

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

The medieaval centre of LeMans is very picturesque and La Demeure de Laclais is right in the centre of it. This was the most French feeling hotel of the four we stayed in during our tour, and so are the hosts, who were very friendly. Included excellent breakfast (superb bread) is served on a single table, at which we enjoyed... More

My husband and I booked one night here while touring through France and found the accommodations just beautiful. The suite was absolutely gorgeous and very clean. After seeing the accommodations, I wish we had planned to stay longer in Le Mans. As it was, I was very ill upon arrival and am very grateful to the proprietors for their kindness.... More

Faultless, the property is situated directly next to the rear of the catherdral and immediately adjacent to the Cite Plategenet on top of the ridge which dominates the whoe town. The welcome and assisstance afforded by Eric was a perfect start to our stay, he was good enough to offer to carry my very large & heavy case up to... More

My family (which includes two teenaged children) stayed in La Tourelle for one night. There are actually two massive adjoining rooms with 12 foot ceilings arranged in a L shape. For a accommodation in France, the suite was palatial! We all had more than enough space for all our bags. The hosts were very hospitable & welcoming. We would've preferred... More

This was suppose to be a treat after camping for 4 days at the Le Mans 24 hour race. The room we were given was not en-suite the bathroom being across the landing from the room. The shower was over the bath with no curtain so difficult not to splash water everywhere. The room we were given had many personal... More
