A VERY good hotel. Big room with a seating area and terrace. Very nice and helpful staff. A good restaurant , with guest from all the area. Quiet location, with a big park around and water channels. To wake up with the birds singing. The best place to stay when you are visiting VITRÉ and RENNES

Perfect stop though on the way to somewhere else. Good sized room and bathroom for Europe, clean and with comfortable beds. The... More

Stayed here en route to visit our friends in France. Our Room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the river below. The view was charming and the village of Cesson-Sevigne is very pretty with beautiful flowers everywhere at this time of year. We were well looked after and chose to dine in their restaurant. Can totally recommend as the food... More
