The seaview from the bedroom which is beautiful...
We had evening meals and breakfasts, both were very good. One evening meal was from the a-la-carte and was excellent in every way. Another evening I chose from one of the set menues also very good and excellent value. The staff were excellent contrary to some reviews that I had seen.
We really enjoyed our stay at La Mere Champlain. We had a nice room with balcony. The owners are very welcoming and the staff is very kind as well. The bathroom is not large but everything you need is there and it's clean and pleasant.The breakfast is ok (ham, cheese, croissants). Before we arrived at Cancale we stayed in some other hotels (Loire, Nantes) and I have the impression breakfast in French hotels has improved. The restaurant is ok. Busy, so book a table in advance. But if you are an oyster lover you also have to try the oyster at the oyster bar "Au pied d'Cheval", it's only a few meters from the hotel. Anyway if we go back to Cancale we will certainly stay again at La Mere Champlain.
No remarks. The only advise I would give the owners is to install air condition in the rooms, because the windows of the rooms are large and the hotel is at the sunny side, so I can imagine that in summer it might be too warm in the rooms.
hotel was excellent with position overlooking sea and walks through interesting port town
parking and carrying bags was a bit of a hassle
Very cheerful staff in the evening and good welcome to the hotel. Balcony and view lovely. Food was good.
Service in the morning was poor and loud jazz playing was not appropriate for breakfast time.
Nice room & restaurant. However, I want bathroom in the room.
Cleanliness of hotel in general - staff in terms of attitude and service
Breakfast was poor quality for the price - we elected to have breakfast elsewhere
Cleanliness and help when checking in.
Lovely situation overlooking the sea-nice balcony Not much passing traffic- on the flat Good selection of restaurants nearby
That the bed for the third person was a proper bed and not just a put-u-up or a mattress on the floor. The hotel was not overly decorated as some French hotels tend to be. Fantastic shower!
