“Good location, helpful staff”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

We recently stayed at the Hotel de France et d'Europe for three nights whilst touring Normandy and Brittany.

It is ideally located a short walk from the harbour and proved a very convenient base for sightseeing by car in the area. Parking is an issue if you do not use their private parking which is charged separately. However, it is located only a couple of minutes walk across the road from the hotel.

Initially, we had booked the lowest price room which proved too small for our luggage. However, we were able to transfer to a higher priced room located at the front of the hotel which, whilst not large, was adequate for our three night stay. If staying in a room overlooking the main street there is noise at night, but this did not prove a problem with the window closed.

Breakfast at the hotel (charged separately) was of reasonable value with a good range of cereals, breads, croissants, cheese, ham (even eggs to boil yourself), etc. The hotel also offers a free Internet service.

We found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful and they offered some very good suggestions as to where to visit in the surrounding area.

Overall we would recommend the Hotel de France et d'Europe if staying in Concarneau for a few days.

Friendly staff, clean room, well appointed bathroom. Walking distance to centre and the old walled city. Private parking area just across the road, secured at night. Simple but good breakfast. Better value for money than the larger chain motels usually found on the outskirts of towns.

Bed was a little small for a double and the room could get a little hot in the summer with no aircon unit.

Room Tip: would not recomended with children.

Hotel is in a very central location for Concarneau. Hotel itself is quite basic. Nothing special. Rooms are ok. The bathroom was the nicest element. The breakfast was ok. Not a bad place to stay for one night.

We toured Brittany by car, exploring most of the coastline and its towns and villages. Concarneau, particularly, attracted us. It is well worth a visit, with an old medieval section, a bustling port that one can wander freely, big marina, good shoreline walks, and even a nature walk, plus an engaging town -- especially on market days. The hotel is well run. It is clear the owners care about their guests and their property. Good value for the money and very pleasant.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The family who own this hotel were so welcoming, making our stay with children and grandparents a pleasure. The buffet breakfast is fantastic, the rooms were comfortable I can only recommend this as a great experience.
