Turned up to check in at 2pm. No one at reception and was locked. Went to restaurant next door to ask re checking in, they were closing. Went next door to another hotel attached to our one and they didn't know procedure for the residency! So went back to the reception and the opening times were between 4-7pm. We drove around for a bit then went back to check in a 4pm. The room was excellent and it is self catering so nothing provided, not even towels so as long as you know it is just a flat with the exception of plates, cups, glasses etc there is no coffee, tea facilities, towels then you are fine. You can rent towels from reception. The pool is outside but you have a code to get in and you have to go there dressed and then dress before you leave so we didn't use it as it would have been too cold. The location isn't great if you have kids as it is a good 15-20 minute walk to the centre of Dinan and we did it everyday which was tiring on our 5 year old. Overall experience is it does what it says on the tin and the staff are very helpful. Apartment was very spacious and very clean, once we had adapted to it no being a hotel it was fine. Main gripe was the attitude of the people in the businesses round about I.e. the restaurant and the hotel. Not attached to the apartments but they were very much less than helpful. Staff in the apartments were great when they were there. Now I know what to expect I would actually go back again.
