Pros: great shower with good water pressure, clean room, comfortable bed, bar/lounge downstairs with decently priced drinks, walking distance to center of Dinan, plenty of parking, complimentary bottle of Evian water provided each day!
Cons: we could hear the sliding door at the entrance of the hotel whenever it opened/closed. Checkout was not very efficient as there was an error on the invoice and we had to explain the error to them a few times in order to correct it.
As a result of an accident resulting in a broken arm, we had to change travel plans and take the day ferry from St Malo. Needed to stay overnight the evening before and recalled seeing this Mercure when visiting Dinan previously. Good decision. Only half an hour away to catch the morning boat. Plenty of free reasonably secure parking. Welcoming reception. Arrived mid-afternoon so enjoyed comfortable lounge looking over the Rance to the old port of Dinan. Good modern room, well furnished and decorated with a reasonably large bathroom. Good value for the quality. In short, a good decision for an overnight stay before the morning boat from St Malo.
The hotel is located next to the river in the port just outside the old city. It was easy to park our car and check-in was painless. It's a modern building, so not much character but practical. There were lots of restaurants close by and the old city was a 10-15 minute walk up a cobbled street - enjoyable every time we walked it.
Our room and the hallways had a slightly odd smell - not unbearable but it detracted from the experience.
Location of this hotel is perfect!
Otherwise nothing to write home about... Room modern and spacious bathroom (mould in the grout in the shower, nothing a good clean wouldn't fix) Our ground floor room had a walkway right outside, so we had to have the blind closed at all times, so it felt a little bit like a bunker. The hotel had just 30% occupancy at our stay, so surely it would have been a better located room available.
Restaurant was closed,this was on a Sunday.
Breakfast good with friendly staff.
Overall we think it was pricey for what we got.
Position and hotel very good. Staff good. Restaurant, food and public rooms good. Parking not really secure as open access from river. Room disappointing, comfortable bed but storage insufficient for more than one night. Strange air conditioning control, no temperature only +/- 1,2, or 3C. No mirror in bedroom. Bathroom lacks hanging areas, so towels remain wet, no shelf for toiletries. Shower good.
