“Oh dear No!”
Reviewed 9 September 2006

How this hotel has a 4 star rating is beyond our imagination. My wife and I have stayed at many hotels throughout Europe, USA, etc. in 4 and 5 star hotels but have never seen such a hotel as this classifies as 4 star.

We stayed at the LeCoq Gadby on Sep. 2nd & 3rd 2006. On arrival in the hotel car park we walked though the gravel garden with its roses to the reception area. The interior of the building can only be described as `out of date`. The furnishings are years beyond their replacement dates - carpets, upholstery on settees and lounge chairs, and the need of extensive redecoration thoughout.

Our bedroom (unlike the picture on their web site) was small and had furniture fitting a 2 star establishment only. They claim to have a Gourmet restaurant which as we are not red meat or shell fish eaters made their menu unacceptable to us - granted, this is our fault, not theirs.

Our further complaints were that the bathroom (shower only) had luke warm bordering on cold water via the shower taps - they showed a complete disinterest when told of this and trying to explain in our school boy/girl French and their non English when they asked why we did not eat in their restaurant, was impossible!

Renne itself is a delightful old city. I can highly recommend it and its restaurants, but do not stay at this hotel as there are plenty in the city, more convenient and much less expensive.

Reviewed 27 November 2005

After a long journey & snow we were delighted to arrive in a smart hotel with friendly staff with such pretty rooms. We had the suite with twin beds for the kids (ages 11+15) and a double for us (Louis VXVI). Both had lovely ensuite bathrooms although an adult could not lie in such a short bath! Went down for lunch to find the restaurant empty. Food very traditional french & pricy.
So looking forward to bed but.. it was too short! At 5'6" I was not comfortable because of the very pretty board at the base of the bed. Much worse for 6' tall husband. Very disappointing, this must be a problem for so many people.
Breakfast traditional french ie nothing cooked & no cereal at all, cheeses,fruits & bread. No pain au chocolat for kids & they had run out of croissants.
Also they charged us for breakfasts when price quoted included it.
