In the middle of the city, a charming place, with in walking distance in the narrow streets, to the market, the Nadine creps restaurant, and the old harbor. The Hotel de France, with a nice modern interior design, has a restaurant, breakfast and dinner are delicious, people are nice and welcoming. The old harbor has a street full of charming... More

This is a well run, clean, very inexpensive and acceptable but aging hotel. We had two nights here in July 2014 and explored the really fantastic town of Douarnenez. We had a room facing the 'courtyard' which was quiet. The restaurant in the hotel seemed busy but we did not dine there are we were out and about and the... More

We booked a night at the hotel De France on the recommendation of a local. The hotel is traditional French and the accommodation is fine. We were asked if we wanted to go half board and we agreed. We went down to the dining room at the agreed time and was shown to a table and then ignored. When a... More

We spent 6 nights in this delightful homely hotel in the centre of the fishing town of Douarnenez. It retains all the character of the original hotel which is a gem to find as it also has all the necessary facilities - comfortable clean bedroom, spacious shower and a great breakfast. The chefs' homemade breads and jams, in addition to... More

Now, we did not actually stay at the hotel but I needed a place to have a long business skype call and saw that they had free internet. so we arrived early and had a lovely, reasonably priced, lunch which would be sometimes not found at at very expensive restaurants. All the staff were extremely friendly and settled me down... More

I have used Tripadvisor for some time and never left a review before. Our experience was so memorable that I promised myself to drop a few lines to compliment the Hotel de France and its restaurant l'Insolite. This hotel was the best experience we had during our visit of the Brittany region and among the 2-3 stars hotels we stayed... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night in August 2008. We chanced upon the hotel and we were very pleased. The hotel has been recently renovated in a contemporary style that works well alongside the Breton furniture. The room was clean, modern with a flat screen tv and the ensuite was also excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly.... More
