I will admit it. When the boyf. said he had booked us here for two nights I was sniffy. "It looks like a motel. It'll be noisy. The bed won't be big enough". I was wrong! This was a clean, quiet, compact, comfortable, no-frills hotel and I really enjoyed our stay. Yes it's motel like but the room was scrupulously clean, with just enough room for two adults for two nights with all our stuff. The shower was hot, with good water pressure. The bed was very comfortable. And the triple glazing really did stop the road noise. We had two nights here for the price of one in the Novotel / Ibis chain and having stayed in all three this trip, this place was my favourite. Don't go if you are luxury hotel lover. Otherwise can't recommend highly enough. Ps the complimentary petit beurre biscuits were pretty nice too ;)
Good location and plenty of parking. The room was clean and we liked having tea/coffee making facilities. However, there were a few problems - the internal door into the room would not close, so we had to prop something against it to hold it shut. When we checked in during the afternoon we were allocated room 36. Later that evening we settled down to watch the rugby on TV with a glass of wine - my husband and I were in our pyjamas sitting in bed. I had locked the door and my husband had checked this. Shortly before 10pm, a gentleman came into our room. The poor man was as shocked as we were - he had been given an entry card for our room. My husband and I were getting changed out of our pyjamas to go down to reception for an explanation when the phone rang. The male receptionist asked for my name and then told me we should be in room 9. I said no, we were allocated room 36. It was made to sound as if it was our fault and we were in the wrong room but it was quite obvious that we had been given the wrong room when we checked in. There was no apology, he rudely said he would find out and let me know. I asked him what he was going to let me know - he then said abruptly that we could stay in room 36 and that was the end of the call. This was a good job as we had used the towels, sat in the bed and the shock of having someone come into the room had made me spill some wine on the sheet. The next morning, we took some bags down to the car and returned to the room. Our entry card would not work. It was pouring with rain and we had to go to reception, wait for the one member of staff available who was also trying to serve breakfasts and explain what had happened. He did reactivate the card and we were able to retrieve the remainder of our belongings. This was the last night of our 14 night stay in France and I was so disappointed, I think if the problem had been dealt with properly and the receptionist had apologised instead of being rude and making it seem like our fault then maybe I would have felt differently. Also I do not understand how the computer system would allow two cards to be activated for the same room and not flag up that it was occupied. This worries me.
We were looking a "base" for our trips to Mont Saint-Michel and other daily trips so the location was perfect. Although it was right next to the motorway the surroundings were quite peaceful. The room was surprisingly pleasant and comfortable - even for a family stay with our dog. It is served by a very small workforce but they really manage to help you as much as they can. The only disappointment was a breakfast buffet that offered little - just some pastries and cold cuts that runs out rather quickly. We had to ask for more... and wait for the bread to bake. Luckily there is a supermarket across the street. We loved the feeling of a small community as the hotel is not enclosed in a building but the room entrance is facing the parking lot. So after the first day there was plenty of "good mornings". We parked literally right next to our room and morning walks with our dog were just a step away.
I'm travelling with my partner and our cat and it's absolutely perfect. Beautiful place outside the city but near a shopping center and with few restaurants in the area. The hotel itself has a lovely restaurant with really nice food. The staff is really, really helpful, the room spotless, the bed is very comfortable, tea and coffee facilities in the room, free wifi... and all for a great price. Highly recommended.
Easy to find Campanile, just across the road from a hypermarket, petrol and various other shops. Easy access just off the roundabout. Reception staff were lovely and helpful - I asked for a little extra milk and was brought a jug with no bother at all - such a change from many hotels where they seem to feel as if you were asking for a bottle of brandy! The rooms were clean and re-furbished, with extra pillows. Tea and coffee in room and BISCUITS - not many campaniles supply these nowadays. Good hot showers with shower gels. Would have liked a hand towel as well as the two bath towels, but I'm sure if I'd asked I could have had one with no trouble. All in all a good, reasonably priced, glean and comfortable hotel with restaurant (not used, but normally to a good standard) free wifi in the rooms and secure parking.
We've been there for the Rennes Tattoo Convention last weekend and it was perfect ! thanks for the hospitality! Great beautiful rooms well equipped with coffee and tea, while the food at the restaurant was fine!
The hotel is situated at the entrance to Cleunay, on 120, RUE EUGENE POTTIER ZAC DE CLEUNAY RENNES, with basic enmities. Rooms are clean and breakfast is OK (but nothing more, quite basic). As fares change during week days they can be too exceeding at times and with limited value per money together with more attractive ones during the weekend. With regards to the business traveler the Campanile offers unstable WiFi and nothing but French speaking channels on TV. Likewise, several notices in the room are in French only. The stuff does its best to accommodate but some lack of experience with foreign travelers is evident (guess they mainly cater local travelers). Situated on the main road the noise may bother some (they have back facing rooms also.) The hotel is situated about 10min drive from Rennes (the capital of the region of Brittany,) historical city center that offer nicely restored town houses together with let-down establishments covered with graffiti. Smoking is prohibited indoors so puffs of smoke fill most of the outside air bars. Across the hotel there’s a small mall and Rennes stadium is not far off. Situated within a drive’s distance is the town of Saint-Malo offering a nice promenade and a very nice view of the Atlantic, a nice historical city center (again, signs in French only so you’d better use google) and overpriced tourist traps of restaurants. All in all an OK hotel/motel for the business traveler (mainly).
Well refurbished and sound proofed room. Very clean. Quality bath and shower and very comfy bed. Half board included a very nice 3 course dinner and a very pleasant breakfast to start the day. Stayed in a Campanile many years ago and disliked the exterior motel style room access. However up graded version far superior now and boutique style very welcoming. Service was excellent.
Friendly and helpful reception staff. We had two bikes to store overnight and this was done for us securely and without fuss. The rooms are a little basic and quite small, set side in a block adjacent to the reception area. Ours was a twin room and there was barely a gap between the beds. Annoyingly the shower bracket above the bath was broken meaning you had to hold the shower head itself to take a shower. Coffee and tea making facilities were included in the room. The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute bus ride away from the City Centre but the bus stop is easily found outside. Beds clean and comfortable. Free Wifi access was a big plus and worked fine.
We were three of us travelling by car across Brittany. We stayed at three different Campanile hotels for one night at a time. Of the three, the Campanile Cleunay was third best however it was very adequate for what we needed. We had a triple room - two single beds and one bed that slid under one of the single beds. The beds were relatively comfortable. The room itself seemed a little dated and worn but it was clean. This room had been a smoking room and we could smell that as soon as we walked in but didn't notice it after awhile. The bathroom was a good size for French standards but had also seen better days. However, this hotel was excellent value for the money and the two other Campanile hotels we stayed at were better. I highly recomment Campanile hotels for one or two night stays. Not fancy but perfectly adequate when going from town to town in your travels.
