Recent guest reviews
excellent hotel, excellent staff and excellent food. The rooms are lovely. The setting is brilliant (on the River Erdhe). The only problem is the Regate is 25 miles from the Airport.but easy to find with a sat nav. hopeless without a sat nav there is a good car park. there is also a good 30 min bus service (no 75) from the corner (a 100 yard walk). 2 euros for an hour's travel . Be aware that there are no shops or restaurants for about 5 miles - so a car is a must. Just a superb hotel with superb staff
Hotel is situated near the water with many lovely walks nearby. Rooms are spacious and the staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small and booking is essential.Breakfast was excellent The bar is extremely expensive and worth avoiding
The hotel is very nice and it's very close to the veterinary place in Nantes. It's also very close to the river. The room was always very clean and the bed comfortable. The restaurant is very good, gourmet style, so it is a little bit expensive but worth it.
4 nights Aug/Sep 2016 - made to feel at home. +ve: ***** Staff excellent. Polite, helpful, very professional, solution finders. On arrival at midnight after a long trip the 24/24 reception staff made us feel absolutely welcome. We had a choice of a ground floor room looking over the parking or an upper floor room with a better view; chose downstairs twin room as more spacious. A decent meal served at 00:30 in the lounge. **** breakfast, fresh varied choice, nicely laid out tables with pristine crockery/cutlery. Wonderful lady at breakfast staff - discrete and helpful, very welcoming and attentive. Nice table area. Could easily spend an hour at breakfast! **** Very clean rooms. Comfortable bed and pillows. Big wardrobe. Minibar. Coffee and tea in one side of the wardrobe which I didn't see until leaving... **** Spacious shower room with all shiny quality taps. Good shower pressure, hot water perfect. **** outside hot jacuzzi very pleasant! **** beautiful walks on the river at 50m distance (many cyclists and joggers without being busy). -ve: a little too warm for me on hot days but no problem sleeping. *The nearby (independent) restaurant had nice 'ok' food although a bit too pricey. The waiters/waitresses there seemed to lack experience (kept forgetting which tables ordered what - lots of returning with plates to kitchen to ask who for, then served cold). Our mains were forgotten completely and tried to serve cheese before. Then waited an eternity for mains which were presented on different non-matching plates for the table? Bit weird. Very disappointing for the price. Expected much better for 95€ without wine! The non-pro staff definitely diminished the experience for me. Overall definitely would go back to the hotel!
We stayed here as a group for a family celebration. Good reception and the breakfasts are worth it. Rooms are OK, a bit hot, and there is a supplement for a view. It is a distance to Nantes itself and the park/ride too, but a short walk to the Erdre fiver which is well worth it. There is room service. Overall we would come back.
We, amongst others, were en route elsewhere....we wanted a comfy, luxurious-ish overnighter where we could have an evening bar type meal, glass of wine, comfy sleep and an included breakfast before travelling on the next day. We didn't. This hotel is a great stop over but, unless you are a rich gourmand, it has a very expensive evening menus starting at 22 euros each in the restaurant with no bar options; and there is nothing else remotely within walking distance - unless the pizza / cafe 1.5 miles away at the university is considered an option...we passed it n leaving the next day... So, you need to drive if you want to eat, or bring your own pique nique with you from the supermarche... Rooms are bijou, not large, but clean and well presented. If you open the window beware the mossies, the Reigate in the title gives the game away, you're near the river. Spa is a joke, two rusting metal loungers by a jacuzzi sized hot tub outside in the shade. However, great private parking and plentiful breakfast, and fast fee wi fi...and a very tranquil location... Value for money? No. Will we back en route? No. Were we treated with courtesy and respect? Absolutely yes, flawlessly. Would we recommend it for or to anyone? Sadly No. Do we regret having stayed there? No, all part of life's rich tapestry..not our ideal hotel, or giving us what we wanted - but very nice all the same.. Hope this helps you with what to expect if you are considering going there...
The room was very small, smelly, the carpet had seen better days & looked out over scrubland. Off the beaten track, only the hotel restaurant to eat, which was pricey, particularly the drinks 5.50€ for a bottle of water! No ambiance, in fact rather an unpleasant experience, certainly wouldn't recommend, not even for an overnight stop. We would have been better at a hotel which was more central & could have had a nice 4* for the same price. A big mistake.
The building looks uninviting at first. Inside, however, it is quite modern and comfortable. Check in was trouble free and the room was pleasant enough. The restaurant was in front of the hotel and was a little pricey. The food however was very good.
It looks like Alcatraz from the outside, but oh, inside it is just what one wants. It is new, elegant and has the most immaculately clean rooms I have ever seen in a lifetime of staying in hotels. The rooms are small, but tastefully and comfortably furnished and very clean with all the amenities one could wish for. The only disadvantage was no air conditioning. It seems to be a hotel for corporate and conferences, but we saw little activity that would cause issues for ordinary travellers or holiday makers. It is well off the beaten track but very convenient for Nantes and the airport. One major PLUS is an excellent restaurant, but I will review that separately. A very high standard of nouvelle cuisine indeed. About 200 metres from the hotel is the delightful river Erdre with the magnificent chateau across the water and some lovely walks along its banks to unwind in the morning or at the end of the day. This is a super hotel in a nice location with a great restaurant. We only went there as a stopover on our way further into Brittany - BUT WE CAME BACK for the restaurant. There was nothing here that we could criticise.
The hotel is quite modern and rather ugly but it is set in a lovely peaceful location overlooking a lake. There is a beautiful separate building at the front of the hotel which is a restaurant. Rooms are clean and quite adequate and it has the added bonus of a secure car park which is locked at 9pm. We had a very enjoyable evening meal in the restaurant. The manager was first class and explained every dish on the menu. The restaurant is very popular so it is advisable to book a table in advance. Next morning in the hotel breakfast was ok but quite expensive at 14 euros per person. All the hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful and I would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
