Best Western Champlain France Angleterre

Recent guest reviews

Loved this hotel, from its original grand staircase and bar, lounge area to its spacious yet enclosed garden where if the weather was good you could eat breakfast.There is secure parking next door €12 paid at hotel and a park nearby to walk the dogs. On arrival we received a genuine welcome for both us and our dogs from the receptionist. Though our room was slightly faded it was full of period features and character and was spacious with good bathroom facilities. The hotel has a bar but no restaurant though there are plenty within walking distance. We were there on a Sunday and found the majority of the bars and restaurant shut which was a disappointment.

Our experience seemed to reflect what others have said in that nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. There were a few little things I would change but all of these are typical of a 3 star hotel although this one had lots of character. Didn't try the breakfast - don't like much to eat at this time of day and a coffee and croissant in a nice harbour side cafe had too much appeal.

We arrived before check in time but this was no problem, as we were immediately booked in by the very charming and helpful receptionist. This hotel is in a lovely old building and our room reflected this with its tasteful decoration, high ceilings, and large comfortable bed. Hotel Champlain was easy to find via sat nav, and parking was available either in the next door garage (bit of a steep narrow ramp) or plenty of public parking in the square next block over. The port with its bars and restaurants is just a few minutes walk through the shopping area - this has got to be one of the best places to stay in La Rochelle.

Very nice building in a relatively quiet street. Nice location 10-15 minutes away from the harbor. Breakfast free for children. Nice garden.The staff was very helpful, except when the wifi was not working properly. One of the rooms was a bit noisy.

A 3 star hotel with class. We weren’t expecting much however it delivered. Like a backdrop to a faulty towers scene the hotel was amazing and old and dated. The service was great. The garden is spectacular and the breakfast more than adequate. The rooms are very large and comfortable with large windows. Get a lower floor overlooking the back garden! We had a drink late at night in the bar and had to wait to be served by the older gentleman manning the front desk. It felt great to be sitting in one of the 3 rooms that make up the bar and once again I couldn’t help but think it was such an underrated hotel. Would stay again and again. Thank you!

Good location in the center of the city in a very nice building, room was excellent good bed, friendly and helpfull personel , breakfast was excellent; nice garden in the back of the hotel, modern and classic parts

We could not be happier with our stay here. The room was spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and getting everything out of our stay there. The gardens are an oasis of calm after a busy day in the old port. We stayed 4 nights and would stay there again if we return to La Rochelle. Our French is only ok but all of the staff spoke enough English that we didn't feel out of our depth. The bathtub didn't drain as efficiently as it could but it wasn't a big enough problem to complain about. But when we were leaving we were told that one days breakfast for the two of us had been taken off the bill because the maid mentioned that our bathtub didn't drain quickly enough! Amazing customer service!

As others have noted, this hotel is within walking distance of the port and restaurants, making it a very convenient location. The staff are all friendly and helpful, parking is available at a garage next door for a fee, and the rooms are very spacious. This was our second stay here and we would gladly return again.

Spent 3 nights in this hotel and it met all our expectations. It was so peaceful considering it was only a few minutes walk from the main tourist areas. The hotel maintains elements of grandeur but at the same time offers all the modern facilities. Breakfast was superb with lots of choice and nice to sit outside on the terrace overlooking the tranquil garden. Rooms are a good size and beds comfortable. Staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Very good location, down town. Close to the high street, bars and restaurants. Friendly and helpful stuff. Nice rooms, clean and modern, just ain't small. The only issue sometimes the wifi was very slow, almost unusable.
