Best Western Champlain France Angleterre
Ranked #2 of 49 Hotels in La Rochelle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Situated in the heart of La Rochelle, the Champlain provides all the modern conveniences that one would desire in a tranquil location. From the first greeting to our final departure, we were treated with great warmth and courtesy. We had a lovely room that looked out upon a large garden and terrace. The room could not have been more tranquil and the accompanying bath was large, modern and complete with all the upscale amenities. Another plus was the ease of parking our rental car in a small garage adjacent to the hotel for a mere 7 euros. We asked for restaurant recommendations and were not disappointed as the recommended restaurant was superb and moderately priced. All in all, this is a charming spot from which to explore the delights of La Rochelle.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 24 that overlooked the huge garden and terrace. It was blissfully quiet!

After reading reviews and seeing the photos I expected somethng a bit special but it was only average. The entrace was in aside street - not nearly as grand as it seems in the photos. The receptionist was friendly and ghelpfull and the foyer was quite imprssive but our room was down a corridor and generally looked a bit tired. It wasn't spacious as other peole have said - big enough for two people but no more.

We have just returned from a nights stay at this hotel and would definitely recommend it. Excellent location; friendly & helpful staff; delicious and generous breakfast; clean and comfortable rooms and handy private parking if you cant find a space outside. Easy walk into the centre of town and we would stay again if we were back in La Rochelle. Lovely building and staircase too. We stayed in the winter so didnt use the garden, but were overlooking it from our room and it looked lovely - well maintained and I imagine its glorious in the summer. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

I disagree with reviewers who say the Best Western Hotel Champlain is overrated. The secluded garden alone makes it special, and breakfast out on the patio really gets the day off to a good start. Our room was spacious with high ceilings and there was no noise problem, something that can make or break a stay for me. Without exception, reception staff were helpful and charming. The Champlain is well situated just off the main square and close to a pleasant park, and the value is commensurate with French hotels of similar quality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back overlooking the garden.

Really a very basic hotel and slightly overrated.
Welcome at reception was basic and cold, not advise for surroundings given
The room was very big but also very basic the bathroom was just really bad small and complicated to take even a shower.
Good location though, and La Rochelle is great to visit.

The hotel staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Parking is a huge challenge in the old city and the small cost of parking in the garage next door to the hotel is worth it (especially if you want to save your external rear view mirrors as they have a habit of getting snapped off by passing cars if you're parking on the street). The charming and yet modern, room was perfect for a rest after a busy day in the town and comfortable to work in, with great internet access. Highly recommended

This Hotel is in a good central location to explore La Rochelle. The rooms are a good size with fridge and kettle provided. The breakfast if taken is expensive. The Hotel could benefit from a restaurant for evening meals.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
