Never again!!!
I was 3 hours early , and check in was at 4 which I was very aware of. But what I didn't know that the hotel is closed til then. It was cold and raining, waited outside for an hour til I decide to call them. Not to check in but just to sit in their lobby. The lady/owner gave me an attitude saying check in at 4, I told her I can wait in the lobby as all I need is just to be indoors and warm. They really should state their closing hours. I could have gone elsewhere where it's open 24/7.

Modernised historic hotel right in the centre
We were visiting Fougeres as the first stop on our tour of Brittany. It is a great town to visit, with lots to do. This hotel is right in the centre of the town, handy for all castle, the gardens, the medieval quarter and the market. There are lots of restaurants close by. It is a traditional hotel, modernised to a good standard. A nice big ensuite and a comfy bed. A good continental breakfast (madeleine, croissant, very fine bread and home made jam, which was a treat. The owners are a very nice and helpful couple.
