“A fine hotel for a good price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed here with our 3 daughters to break up the journey from Southern France to the ferry in Ouistreham. It was a fine hotel for a good price.
The room was clean and decent. We did have to ask twice for a cot, but it came promptly after the second call. The pool was cold, but the hotel didn't make any secrets about it being unheated. As it was, it was very hot and the pool was refreshing. We didn't really use any other facilities, but we did walk to the Carrefour across the street and bought a picnic to eat in the nice park just behind the hotel premises.
On the whole, we were pleased. The only negative is that an employee arriving for work nearly hit our daughter in the car park after she came steaming round the corner from the street. You'd think she'd be a bit more aware...

This hotel is an ideal place to spend some time. We stayed for one day as a stop over with two children. The hotel is child friendly and made our stay very enjoyable. The restaurant and breakfast is very good. The outdoor pool is marvellous and the staff very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone contemplating a stop over in Rennes.

A perfect stop over if you are on your way to somewhere else. Rooms are clean, comfortable and of a good size, having obviously had a make over since we stayed here 3 years ago. The food is better than many Novotels (but still very, very basic) and there is plenty of fairly secure parking.You are literally 2 minutes away from the main road if going south or north. BUT you are next to a shopping centre and there is nowhere to go in the evening unless you get back into your car. But this is not a holiday hotel - it is simply a good place for an overnight stop on your way to somewhere else which is why we have used it a few times.

I am most disappointed by this hotel. I cannot believe about the worst well come I had. Because I ask for a smoking room, the hotel try to convince me about another hotel. The hotel was full and they were looking for more rooms. Then they realized I was platinum then they offer me the worst room they had. I did not get my free drink. The worst experience I had. Avoid this hotel by any means.
