“Picture postcard French hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2011

This is undoubtedly one of the most perfectly sited hotels you can find, right beside a pretty bridge over the canal, in a row of 17th, 18th century buildings and at the base of arguably the most impressive Chateau in France. Lovely welcome from the owners who are always there with Madam ever on the move making sure things are right for the guests. Rooms are standard French small hotel size but we moved to the bigger room 218 for a bit extra and no regret as it was wonderful, 3 large windows which open fully giving views of the street, bridge and Chateau. Large bathroom with well maintained plumbing and lots of hot water. Room had a double and single bed so great for small family. Food in the restaurant was of a high standard and great value as part of the DB&B package, wines etc were well priced so the eating experience was what one would expect from a Logis. WiFi was free and worked well throughout our 3 days stay. If you want to experience a lovely old French town that has impressive architecture and access to wonderful canal walks then Josselin is for you and this hotel would appear perfect for the stay.

We have stayed here before and the improvements made to the hotel a very nice. It still has the charm it used to have just a little more up to date. The staff are all very nice and helpful. The location is first class overlooking the château and canal. Look forward to going back again.

Refurbished since our last visit our room was bright and airy and looked out over the canal and Chateau. Friendly staff and owners who went out of their way to help when one of our cars broke down.

The hotel is in a lovely position next to the chateau and the river through the town. The hotel is excellent, the staff very helpful and breakfast good (€8.80). Free parking is available in the hotel car park opposite the hotel, and WiFi is available throughout the hotel (while my netbook connected OK my smart-phone wouldn’t). Josselin is a beautiful town with lovely old buildings and river with walks along the banks.

We have stayed in this hotel several times on our way through France.We have always been happy with our overnight stay .The furnishings were a bit tired and dated and the the food good but plain ,however the view is amazing across the river to the huge chateau that gives the hotel its name .What a sight that is .We stayed this year and they had refurbished all the rooms and ensuite bathrooms ,so they felt much lighter and the food in the restaurant was really really excellent.Every course was mouth watering.We had made the mistake of eating a good lunch on the road so could hardly do justice to what was on offer. The room was 69 euros and dinner 76 euros for 3 courses and a litre of wine.Breakfast is extra.

* Describe the service you experienced
* Tell us how you liked the room
* Great location overlooking the impressive Chateau.
* Worth paying the extra money for a room with a view of the Chateau. We stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner, which was good value and of a very high standard. Parking was very convenient across the road from the Hotel.

Would recommend this 2 star Hotel for an overnight or weekend stay as the Josselin is well worth a visit.

Only negative comment would be that generally, the staff were not very cheerful and perhaps a more relaxed atmosphere would be more convivial to guests!!

This hotel has the noisiest doors and not one of the residents appeared to know how to prevent them slamming closed! Also, be aware that there is no lift.
