    « Very good hotel »

    The hotel is very nice and it's very close to the veterinary place in Nantes. It's also very close to the river. The room was always very clean and the bed comfortable. The restaurant is very good, gourmet style, so it is a little bit expensive but worth it.

    « Much, much better than a 3 star! Will go back! »

    4 nights Aug/Sep 2016 - made to feel at home. +ve: ***** Staff excellent. Polite, helpful, very professional, solution finders. On arrival at midnight after a long trip the 24/24 reception staff made us feel absolutely welcome. We had a choice of a ground floor room looking over the parking or an upper floor room with a better view; chose downstairs twin room as more spacious. A decent meal served at 00:30 in the lounge. **** breakfast, fresh varied choice, nicely laid out tables with pristine crockery/cutlery. Wonderful lady at breakfast staff - discrete and helpful, very welcoming and attentive. Nice table area. Could easily spend an hour at breakfast! **** Very clean rooms. Comfortable bed and pillows. Big wardrobe. Minibar. Coffee and tea in one side of the wardrobe which I didn't see until leaving... **** Spacious shower room with all shiny quality taps. Good shower pressure, hot water perfect. **** outside hot jacuzzi very pleasant! **** beautiful walks on the river at 50m distance (many cyclists and joggers without being busy). -ve: a little too warm for me on hot days but no problem sleeping. *The nearby (independent) restaurant had nice 'ok' food although a bit too pricey. The waiters/waitresses there seemed to lack experience (kept forgetting which tables ordered what - lots of returning with plates to kitchen to ask who for, then served cold). Our mains were forgotten completely and tried to serve cheese before. Then waited an eternity for mains which were presented on different non-matching plates for the table? Bit weird. Very disappointing for the price. Expected much better for 95€ without wine! The non-pro staff definitely diminished the experience for me. Overall definitely would go back to the hotel!

    « Nice quiet hotel »

    We stayed here as a group for a family celebration. Good reception and the breakfasts are worth it. Rooms are OK, a bit hot, and there is a supplement for a view. It is a distance to Nantes itself and the park/ride too, but a short walk to the Erdre fiver which is well worth it. There is room service. Overall we would come back.

    « Very convenable! But remote...and not cheap either.. »

    We, amongst others, were en route elsewhere....we wanted a comfy, luxurious-ish overnighter where we could have an evening bar type meal, glass of wine, comfy sleep and an included breakfast before travelling on the next day. We didn't. This hotel is a great stop over but, unless you are a rich gourmand, it has a very expensive evening menus starting at 22 euros each in the restaurant with no bar options; and there is nothing else remotely within walking distance - unless the pizza / cafe 1.5 miles away at the university is considered an option...we passed it n leaving the next day... So, you need to drive if you want to eat, or bring your own pique nique with you from the supermarche... Rooms are bijou, not large, but clean and well presented. If you open the window beware the mossies, the Reigate in the title gives the game away, you're near the river. Spa is a joke, two rusting metal loungers by a jacuzzi sized hot tub outside in the shade. However, great private parking and plentiful breakfast, and fast fee wi fi...and a very tranquil location... Value for money? No. Will we back en route? No. Were we treated with courtesy and respect? Absolutely yes, flawlessly. Would we recommend it for or to anyone? Sadly No. Do we regret having stayed there? No, all part of life's rich tapestry..not our ideal hotel, or giving us what we wanted - but very nice all the same.. Hope this helps you with what to expect if you are considering going there...

    « Worst Western, definitely not Best »

    The room was very small, smelly, the carpet had seen better days & looked out over scrubland. Off the beaten track, only the hotel restaurant to eat, which was pricey, particularly the drinks 5.50€ for a bottle of water! No ambiance, in fact rather an unpleasant experience, certainly wouldn't recommend, not even for an overnight stop. We would have been better at a hotel which was more central & could have had a nice 4* for the same price. A big mistake.

    « Better than it looks »

    The building looks uninviting at first. Inside, however, it is quite modern and comfortable. Check in was trouble free and the room was pleasant enough. The restaurant was in front of the hotel and was a little pricey. The food however was very good.

    « Brilliant choice for a close to airport hotel »

    It looks like Alcatraz from the outside, but oh, inside it is just what one wants. It is new, elegant and has the most immaculately clean rooms I have ever seen in a lifetime of staying in hotels. The rooms are small, but tastefully and comfortably furnished and very clean with all the amenities one could wish for. The only disadvantage was no air conditioning. It seems to be a hotel for corporate and conferences, but we saw little activity that would cause issues for ordinary travellers or holiday makers. It is well off the beaten track but very convenient for Nantes and the airport. One major PLUS is an excellent restaurant, but I will review that separately. A very high standard of nouvelle cuisine indeed. About 200 metres from the hotel is the delightful river Erdre with the magnificent chateau across the water and some lovely walks along its banks to unwind in the morning or at the end of the day. This is a super hotel in a nice location with a great restaurant. We only went there as a stopover on our way further into Brittany - BUT WE CAME BACK for the restaurant. There was nothing here that we could criticise.

    « Good overnight stay »

    The hotel is quite modern and rather ugly but it is set in a lovely peaceful location overlooking a lake. There is a beautiful separate building at the front of the hotel which is a restaurant. Rooms are clean and quite adequate and it has the added bonus of a secure car park which is locked at 9pm. We had a very enjoyable evening meal in the restaurant. The manager was first class and explained every dish on the menu. The restaurant is very popular so it is advisable to book a table in advance. Next morning in the hotel breakfast was ok but quite expensive at 14 euros per person. All the hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful and I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

    « Great value »

    This was an overnight stop over, between Cherbourg and home. It was good value, clean, and just what we needed. Having a restaurant on site was welcome, after a long day driving. Secure parking was also an important factor for us.

    « A Hidden Gem »

    We stayed two nights here having booked only that morning because of a change in our plans. It has an old medium size building, which contains the restaurant, with a detached very modern building containing most of the bedrooms, the breakfast area and a combined reception and bar. Our bedroom was on the ground floor, facing the residents car park, but there was no late-night or early morning activity to disturb our very peaceful stay. The room was furnished in the typical Best Western modern style, with a very comfortable bed, rather awkward cubist furniture and a wet-room style corner shower room. The hotel provides good short-stay, stop-over, accommodation and helpful interested staff. The restaurant belongs to higher league and seemed to cater for as many locals as residents. Good, easily enjoyed, French cooking is the order of the day. The only slight problem is finding the place. It is hidden at the end of a road through a large modern university complex, which then becomes an older-style urban housing area. Once you know where you are going, the small signs pointing to the hotel become more noticeable. The first attempt is more challenging, but it is well worth the effort.

    « OK, but not great. »

    We arrived at this hotel for two nights to be told that the restaurant was full for that evening. Thanks for not telling us! As it turned out we ate at a nearby restaurant which was great. We'd selected this hotel for its quiet location and for sure it is in a very quiet place. The staff friendliness varied, sometimes it was very good but at other times it was a bit off hand. The toilet did not flush very well and despite advising the reception, nothing was done about it. Typical large chain hotel that could do with better management. We did dine at the hotel on the second night and the food was good but not great.

    « A quiet place »

    Located on the Erbe, the hotel provides great service with friendly staff and a quiet retreat whether for business or leisure. The restaurant is also to be tried as menu offered is of great quality. The hotel would certainly suit families that are looking for a unusual place to stay outside the buzz of the city centre.

    « Good hotel »

    The hotel is located somewhat of the city center in a very nice environment. It takes about 10-15 min to reach the center by car. Personnel is very friendly, hotel looks very good, rooms are nice. Parking is no problem. Breakfast is a good buffet. It is a top hotel if you can stand the driving into the town.

    « OK hotel for a stop over. »

    The hotel was pleasant enough but our whole Nante experience was spoiled by the poor advice from reception. The room was small but nicely appointed. A juliet type balcony was a bonus and found in all rooms it seems. Restaurant next door was good and not as expensive as it first appeared.

    « Quiet and comfortable »

    The hotel is situated on a beautiful riverside with no through traffic. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable with every convenience. The result was a good night's sleep followed by a pleasant breakfast. I couldn't ask for anything more.

    « Beautiful setting »

    A lovely peaceful setting on the river Erdre 11kms outside of Nantes. Professional and welcoming staff who cannot do enough for you.Picturesque surroundings with lovely seating areas to enjoy relaxing in the sun. The area around the river is delightful to walk round with beautiful trees and views. This hotel has a first class restaurant with a chef of a very high calibre. Would recommend you book a table as it is also open to non residents. The hotel also has an extremely good buffet breakfast. Free WiFi and parking.

    « Idyllic location »

    We stayed in this hotel for 1 week in August 2014. The staff are so helpful with everything. Would advise a hire car as it is out of the way. The location is beautiful with beautiful walks along the lake. Recommend you book breakfast as there are no shops nearby. We couldn't get booked in to the restaurant. However, the menu looked excellent and it was always busy which is a good sign. The rooms are lovely, modern and spacious. The bathroom was lovely and shower was powerful and inspired us to revamp our own bathroom when we got home! Drinks at the bar were pretty expensive. Could be that it was an imported drink that bumped the bill up, husband is partial to Bailey's!

    « Nice hotel with an excellent restaurant »

    I have stayed at this hotel twice on business trips. The hotel itself is good with pleasant rooms and a very good breakfast buffet. It is located outside the center of Nantes near the Loire river in peaceful surroundings. I can recommend the attached restaurant which serves excellent food and wines and very reasonable prices.

    « Back to nature »

    The hotel is placed in a very nice and peaceful place (river Erdre can be seen from the hotel together with La Gacherie, a castle built on oposite side of the river). I appreciated a lot the involvement of the hotel managers and personnel in energy and water saving, minimising waste and using renewable energy. Different sports can be performed around, while enjoying the French wines and dishes. The hotel is well integrated in the landscape, while combining something old (the restaurant) with somethiing new (the hotel), something borrowed (the geothermal heat) with something blue (the sky).

    « a peaceful place to stay »

    I really enjoyed this hotel . the restaurant was a treat. Great gourmet food great price. We opted for the 21 euro menu and were pleasantly surprised Very nice setting,eco friendly.This hotel would be amazing in the summer time. staff were very friendly and helpful we don't speak French but we communicated as they had English
