Reviewed 9 December 2011

Hidden away on the myriad of small streets 5 mins from the station. Make sure you know where you are going and which station exit to take otherwise you might take some time to find the hotel. Room was spacious although furntiure an decor was a little dated. Bathroom was newer and clean. Only a short walk to the old town and the station so perfectly positioned for both business and pleasure! Very good breakfast served early to meet our early start time. Service was good. WiFi access limited to reception and surrounding areas and a little hit or miss giving the staff some headcahces with regular reboots to get it going. Overall nice, comfortable and good service, without being memorable.

Room Tip: Close to reception for WiFi coverage - very quiet road, so no need to worry about traffic noise

All the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble for any of them. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone. Central location to the trams and the square and shops and restaurants, very useful location.

Recently renovated room and bathroom on first floor was very comfortable and welcoming. Lift in lobby to upper levels. Room size adequate. Very comfortable mattress and bedding. Free fast internet via cable in room. Reception staff spoke English and were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast very good and was the usual French fare of baguette, jams, croissant and pastries, apple compote, tea, coffee etc. Only complaint was the framing of my bed made noises as though something was loose in it. I stayed for 2 nights. Close enough to restaurants and bars for walking. Good location to railway station. Ample free car parking. All in all highly recommended. I understand from other guests that not all rooms have been renovated yet.

Located in a one street, it can be difficult to find for the first time but this is a minor point, given its quiet location and off street parking. Its an easy walk to the centre of town, where there are plenty of eating places and things to do. The rooms are relatively big with good facilities, very clean and comfortable. Very good stop over point for travel south. The staff were very helpful and made you feel welcome.

We had a ‘junior suite’ for one night, a Saturday at the end of September, at the cost of £83 including taxes but not breakfast. A small anteroom with a comfortable sofa and writing desk led into a spacious bedroom. The bed was capacious but rather hard. The wall opposite was dominated by an enormous flat-screen HD TV. Although it was interesting to watch HD, only the free-to-view stations appeared available. The bathroom/toilet, via a flimsy door, was clean but tired with laminate top and inset washbasin. No teamaking in rooms, but afternoon tea was available as an extra in the salon downstairs. Breakfast was adequate, just, and brought to the table in a pleasant breakfast room on individual trays. The weather was cold that weekend but there was no heating on. A mild complaint produced apologies, but it was clear that it wasn’t in the plan to have central heating on in September. If we had been warm in our room I would have rated the hotel very good.

We weren’t expecting a car park, and we weren’t charged, so this was a bonus, but it’s likely to be in demand during the week when there are more guests.

Although other reviewers have mentioned the 15 minute walk to the old town and the restaurants, there is an alternative on a cold evening - we took the tram! The nearest stop is three minutes from the hotel and a slick modern (2007) articulated tram glides past every few minutes. Getting a ticket is easy from the machine at each stop (you have to validate your ticket when you get on the tram) and the route is clearly marked on the city map available free from the receptionist. We got off three stops later at the edge of the old town and used the tram to get back after a good supper. Well worth the ride if only to experience a modern tram service.

We stayed here on the first stop of our European road trip. The hotel is situated about 15 mins walk from the town centre in a quiet location. The lady who greeted us on the reception desk was very welcoming and was able to recommend a lovely local restaurant and actvities to undertake during our stay. Our room was very spacious, clean and comfortable.

We chose this hotel because of its previous reviews as we were looking for somewhere to stopover on way to Vendee. This was perfect as there was free parking onsite and large room for cot. Hosts were attentive and spoke English guiding us to the best places for dinner etc. The hotel was clean and charming and breakfast consisted of coffee and fresh bread. The coffee was the best I tasted all trip. Excellent place to explore Le Mans - about 15 mins walk to old town.
