Hotel La Quebecoise Le Bas Frene
Ranked #14 of 16 Hotels in Dinan
Reviewed 10 July 2012

My husband and I cycled down from St Malo, so the fact that the hotel is not quite in Dinan didn't deter us at all - in fact, if you have a car or a bike, I'd say that this hotel is an excellent choice. The rooms are very comfortable, the breakfast (French style - baguettes, croissants, jams, butter, fruit puree, yoghurts, cereal and fruit) is excellent and Julie and Oliver, the owners of the hotel, friendly and ready to help. Also, there is something wonderful about staying in a converted farmhouse and waking up to a chorus of birds...
Overall, a very plasant experience and excellent value for money.
P.S. If you come by bike, you can leave it in the garage, where you'll also find a table tennis table, badminton rackets and a table football. The TV in our room also had a USB-stick socket, so it was easy to charge my Kindle and my husband's camera.

i see by some other reviews that this hotel is good for a one night stopover. if you do not have a car this would not be a good choice since even on the web site he tells you taxis will not come to the hotel. i stayed 3 days and when i arrived at about 1130am i was also told that the room was not ready. but i usually just drove from my last stop to my next hotel and then i would go into town after checking in. the reception area to be like most owner run hotels where it seems they try and save as much money as possible and keep the lights low. it still was clean and i was toldto come back around 1400 and he gave me the key so i could go direct to the room. town center is about 2k from hotel not far and a easy drive to town. everybody said how good the breakfast is, on my 30 day trip i did not take any breakfast because i know that it is going to be cereal, croissants and yogurt which no mattrer where i travel that is what you get. this is fine for most but i would go the local store and get some fruit and juice and be on my way. the owner was very nice and very helpful let me use his internet to check email spoke good english and the room was clean and warm as it rained everyday and windy and cold parking was good and did not really hear alot of road noise from highway would stay again upon my return to Dinan

We stayed here as a stopover for one night on the way back from a week in a small Brittany village about 90 miles to the west, as it was only about half hour from the early St Malo ferry and saved us an early start.

We arrived about 11.30am and found the reception unmanned. When the owner did show we were told that our rooms would not be ready till 3pm (not unreasonable, but we were then left to our own devices and not even offered a drink) so, after losing ourselves in Dinan for a few hours, we headed back to the hotel about 4ish and found the rooms clean, comfortable and modern although the reception was dark and dingy with a broken glass entry door.

Although the buildings themselves are quite attractive, the outside courtyard area is somewhat scruffy with the best table reserved for the owner! The yellow hosepipe that was pumping out the green fishpond didn't help. This somewhat typified the owners' attitude to the guests in so much as the guests seemed to be a nuisance to them.

We decided to have a drink before heading back to Dinan for an evening meal as there is nothing local to the hotel. We ordered a coffee, a beer and two wines - the wine was available, but we were told the coffee would take 10-15minutes for the machine to be switched on, and there was no beer! This was drunk outside as the bar was closed and remained so for the duration of our stay.

The landlady did however order us a cab so we could escape!

At breakfast time the dining room doors were pushed open before Monsieur went back to his computer - there was no "please, come in, breakfast is now ready...". Breakfast was one croissant and some French bread and jam, a glass of orange juice and coffee. When we had almost finished it was pointed out that there were Cornflakes and yoghurt available.

To sum up, I would say that the hotel is convenient for an overnight stop close to the port, but has very little else to recommend it - it is unwelcoming.

P.S. The dog is much friendlier than the owners.

Rooms much larger than most in France, although not modern in decor, but does that really matter? Loaned us their clothes airer so our laundry could be dried. Yummy breakfasts (best croissants we had in France!), spoke both French and English and have a lovely rescue dog. Very close to the city but not in the city so there was none of that annoying city noise. Don't let its proximity to a major highway be a deterrent - we barely heard any vehicle noise.

The room was fine and the breakfast was good too. The lady owner was very friendly. We drove into town for an evening meal and getting back could have been a problem as our sat nav nearly took us over the top of the hotel on the big road, but we managed to exit on a slip road near it just in time. The best approach is to come from Dinan with the town behind you, be ready to look for the sign as soon as you drive under the flyover and it is up a longish lane on your left. Parking near the hotel was very convenient. It was not a long drive into town, which was well worth a visit. The quayside was particularly pretty.

We have stayed 3 nights, and enjoyed very much the country atmosphere so close to town. The owners are very freindly and helpful.
