Hotel des Ducs Alencon
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Alencon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I chose this hotel for a stopover as it had a secure parking area (with an electronic shutter which is opened with a code), is situated in a nice town walkable to a good selection of restaurants and a short drive from the A28 motorway. I booked a superior room, which is larger than the normal rooms and with tea and coffee making facilities.

The hotel is very modern and clean with a bar/breakfast room and very helpful and friendly owners. Our room (number 27) was on the ground floor and had French doors which opened up onto the garden. The bed was extremely comfortable and the modern bathroom was well equipped with hairdryer and heated towel rail. There was no traffic noise.

Overall this hotel was perfect for a stopover. I would highly recommend it and will definitely be staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the garden are nice and quiet with access from the room into the courtyard.

We stopped here on our way to Calais and the Eurotunnel. It served us well for this purpose. Located right across from train station, and easy walk to downtown. Nice courtyard garden area. Great (outdoor) secure parking. Nice, small bar in building. Had to carry our bags up a flight of stairs because no elevator. Website says register after 3:00, but no one there until 3:30 so we waited at front door. But, overall, we liked the hotel and may stay here again.

Room Tip: We liked our room facing the courtyard.

I stayed at the hotel on a Sunday night in early March 2014 during a business trip to the area. Very clean and comfortable bedroom, breakfast was very good (fresh squeezed orange and great coffee)

Recomend.

I stayed here two years ago on a trip back from Agen in the January. Having spent new year in Agen last year, i forgot to book accommodation on the way back. We arrived at Des Ducs on 5 jan 2014 and I walked in to be greeted by the patron who remembered me. THEN, please can I have six rooms! He immediately accommodated us all, with five doubles and one single. The newly decorated rooms are lovely and well appointed with free WiFi, free off street parking and a great newly decorated bar and eating area. Just perfect after the long drive to relax, have a drink and get a taxi to escargot dore for dinner. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely but ask for ones at the back to be totally sure of quietness.

This is a well placed and reasonably priced hotel for visiting Alencon, or stopping off on the way further South in France. Very friendly and good accommodation. The hotel only offers breakfast - which is very good value - but there are plenty of nearby restaurants for evening meals.

Alencon makes a great place to stay on the way from the Channel to South West France. It is close to the A28, a beautiful historic town to walk around and stretch your legs. The Hotel des Ducs is easy to find just opposite the railway station and provides secure car parking in its courtyard. It is a nice hotel with clean smart rooms, a good continental breakfast buffet, and a lovely garden. We stayed last year and were delighted and our second visit didn't disappoint.
