Some hotels have it, some don’t - this one definitely does. I booked our visit 6 months ago as part of a fairly long ‘progress’ around France. For ‘family’ reasons we had to reorganise and with 24 hrs notice I rang to ask if we could bring our booking forward - no problems, no teeth sucking, no ‘transfer fee’- just a reassuring “of course” ( in English which was even more reassuring - my French breaks down, a bit, under the strain of ‘organisational chaos’ ). We arrived, after 650 km driving, to a reserved parking space ( if you know Coulon, you’ll understand) and a warm welcome. The hosts really do provide service with a smile.

The room was spacious, cool on a day with temperatures over 30c, beautifully decorated and properly equipped. While this is a small family hotel the visitor quickly notices the care taken with everything, the way that the decoration is in excellent condition and everything works. Our room looked out onto a quiet lane leading to the water and we had our windows open.....a wonderful luxury in such warm weather.

The hotel is perfectly positioned, by the water, close to restaurants etc and so reasonable at 87€ a night. A huge spread for breakfast ( our only criticism.....no croissants! We so look forward to proper French Croissants after our, relatively, poor English attempts) with bread, brioche, fruit etc etc etc....all for 8.90€.

Really, apart from the croissants ( sorry Rudolf), Hotel du Marais is difficult to beat!

Room tip: Rm 14 is excellent, but any first floor room would allow open windows.... wonderful in summer!

We arrived after a tiring drive and found this pretty little hotel beside the canal. We were welcomed by the owner who was most kind and considerate. Our room overlooked the canal and was delightful with comfortable beds and a well equipped bathroom.
Hotel Au Marais is close to the village centre where the are many good places to eat.
This is a family run hotel and every effort is made to make the visitor welcome.
Breakfast in the morning was served in a bright sunny room across the street, it was very comprehensive.
Having been refreshed by this charming small hotel we continued our journey south. We would certainly stay here again.
.

Room tip: A room overlooking the canal would be a bonus.

We were last here in 1976 so after a long road trip we diverted to Coulon before catching the ferry from St Malo. A different family were running the hotel and the rooms had been beautifully modernised. Attentive service and they arranged our trip on the Marais at very short notice. To enjoy the peace of the Marais at its best go early morning or last thing when there are only a few punts around.
Luckily we also attended the fete and celebrations showing how the community lived 100 years ago.

Excellent position right by the river. We parked in main square and walked a few minutes to hotel as not so much parking nearby. The owner met us and could not have been more friendly and helpful. He speaks very good English. He recommended a few local restaurants and booked our table for us. We had a family room which had plenty of space for a family of 5. Clean, spacious bathroom. Buffet breakfast had plenty of choice for all. Would recommend a stay here if visiting Coulon

Room tip: Family room can accommodate extra bed so 5 can stay in same room

The hotel consists of two buildings facing the Sevre Niortaise River in the heart of the Marais Poitevin. While busy with day trippers during the day, Coulon is very quiet at night and makes an excellent base for exploring the region. It is also a very attractive town in its own right and offers very pleasant strolls along the river. The management provides a warm welcome and personal service, including greeting you by name and recommending local restaurants (I dined in two very good ones) and day trips. The hotel offers an outstanding buffet breakfast highlighted by Madame's homemade patisserie. If you arrive on a weekend or holiday I would advise parking in the large municipal lot which is a 10 minute walk from the hotel and moving your car in the evening.
