Knowing that market day is Thursday, and that we wanted to experience this event we arrived the day before.
We did not anticipate parking problems given the time of year. In fact it is possible to park directly in front of the hotel using "payant" parking. Whilst there is usually a charge for parking during the day it is free overnight from 7pm until 9am.
Note that is not possible to park on the market place opposite Wednesday night due to the weekly market Thursday morning.
We chose Le Challonge because of its location and good reviews. When booking we called the hotel to request 2 rooms and to request that one of the rooms had a bath and to ensure that a lift is avaialble - it is!
Upon arrival we were met by friendly faces and quickly checked into our rooms. Both rooms were spacious, well equiped and comfortable. What struck us most was the cleanliness throughout the hotel.
Breakfast was typical "continental" style but we were also offered freshly cooked omelettes. We can also recommend the hotels restaurant on the ground floor. As we were leaving the hotel the Terrace area outside was being prepared for warmer weather.
Our 2 day stay was comfortable and we had a pleasant stay in the town despite adverse weather.
Dinan is always worth a visit and we would recommend this hotel to others and we wish the new owners well for the future.
