I chose this hotel as a pit stop between locations and was pleasantly surprised with the hotel and town of Clisson. Our room was great with a gorgeous view of the Castello Clisson and river. Bathroom, bed & size of the room were all excellent. The little town was very nice to explore for a day. The small bar across the road was a great little spot for an afternoon drink and snack
On the positive side this restaurants location cannot be faulted. We were lucky to be in Clisson during some very fine weather and the terrace overlooking the river and castle is perfect for afternoon drinks. The pool is great too, not large but big enough to cool down in and relax after a day sight seeing/wine tasting. Due to holiday closures we did have to eat at the restaurant one night. After earlier reviews we didn't particularly want to do this but there was no other option really. Again the setting on the terrace was great but the staff really are not managed well. We sat for the whole duration of our meal surrounded by tables full of dirty plates and glasses from previous diners. One table was not cleared in over 3 hours... amazing really. I don't like to criticise too much but this does need addressing as they are letting down an excellent chef. The food was very good.
Every year in June I have the pleasure to stay at this amazing hotel. The rooms are renovated and has a clean design, with comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Only thing missing is a mini fridge otherwise tip top! The resturant is great, some of the best food I have had in France has been eaten here surprisingly enough. But the best selling point here is the AMAZING view of the Castello Clisson and the location of the hotel right on the river. Super cute town filled with amazing architecture and great restaurants and wine selection
We have just returned from a 3 night break in Clisson and stayed here en route to the South of France. The hotel itself is lovely, in the most beautiful setting - the views are truly breathtaking. Our 2 rooms were clean and modern & the hotel has a lovely little pool with a pretty dining room/terrace. Our only issue was our dining experience. Dinner was a disaster. We were constantly ignored and waited forever just to get a drink. There was constant confusion over our order and the food when it arrived was really poor (I'd definitely recommend eating elsewhere) Such a shame as its a lovely setting. Thank god for one young man who couldn't have been more helpful & sorted everything out for us. Breakfast on our first day was a joke! We arrived about 9.40 (breakfast finishes at 10) so that was our first mistake I guess! Basically, there were no plates, no coffee left, no fruit, no juice, no cutlery, no anything!! We kept asking for a plate. None came. There were boiled eggs but no egg cups or spoons! The woman looked very rushed but rather annoyed that we were asking for things. The next day we arrived earlier & it was fine, so maybe it was just because we arrived later on the first day. Overall, lovely place. Gorgeous setting. Just maybe eat out!
So - we stayed here for three nights on our way to the South of France. The hotel is great with excellent views and secure parking. But what brought it down was the terrible attitude of the staff... We (4 - my Mum and Dad, my 4 year old son and I) sat on a table for 5 and were made to feel like we should move tables. We asked for some water and forks for our room and the French waitress was rude (in French) believing we couldn't hear. We arrived at 9.50 for breakfast and was "greeted" by a waitress who simply said the buffet closed at 10 - no hello or niceties. My son dropped a knife in the open air restaurant and the waitress picked up the dirty knife from the floor and gave it back to him. It's such a shame as the hotel is otherwise great, and the town is beautiful.
We stayed at this Best Western for 2 weeks. Our room was small and was not designed for the traveller with little room for luggage. Shower only no bath. Breakfast was not included in the base price. Staff were excellent and most spoke English. Perfect position in town. We ate a good breakfast each morning and had lunch and dinner there at least twice. Lots of restaurants in town with a lot of variety. One thing to remember the French have lunch 12 til 2 and 7:30 onwards for dinner. Nothing open for afternoon snackers or anyone wanting an early meal.
Stayed for 3 nights. Secure parking abount 30m away. Looks like the property has been refurbished fairly recently. There were 4 of us,2 adults and 2 teenagers sharing a large attic room which had plenty of space. Views were of the castle and river which were fantastic. The hotel has a large terrace overlooking the river and castle, a very good spot to eat or have a drink. Staff were all pleasant enough at reception, but not overly friendly. We did not eat at the hotel, but the restaurant was always very busy. A bonus was the pool. However, on the day we sat by it, it was very hot and with only about 8-10 sun loungers and not much room, there is not much space for guests to enjoy if not down early. Not too much in the village, but plenty of restaurants.
We spent two nights here and had booked a room overlooking the river. The room was well appointed including a wet room and plenty of space. We had a terrace for two as well. Service was good and the staff printed off train times to Nantes for us. The station is a 15 min walk and the train takes 20-30 mins into Nantes. There was loads of parking and it had a good restaurant too. Breakfast is expensive as usual in hotels in France - we walked up the village 10 mins and had coffee at a Tabac with crossaints from the bakery. Next to no money by comparison. There are also river activities and a castle to visit and enough restaurants to eat away from the hotel. None open on a Monday though.
Two couples stayed for two nights. We had lovely rooms, one with a balcony cost 10 euros a night more. If we had experienced better weather it would definitely have been worth it. We are in the restaurant one night which was excellent. 15 minute walk to the train station for a brilliant day out in Nantes. Clisson is gorgeous.
We stayed here overnight on route to the Dordogne. The hotel was very clean and comfortable in a marvellous setting. We ate outside in the evening on a very pleasant terrace. The food was excellent, as was the breakfast the next morning. We hope to return to this hotel to have a good look around Clisson.
