This hotel is worth choosing just for its location - in the city centre and almost on the beach. The staff were friendly but the rooms and facilities are basic 2 star French hotel. The breakfast is limited but the location overlooking the front makes up for the unimaginative fare. It is also located next to a large casino and 50 yards from the steps that take you up to the old quarter high up above the modern city.

Room Tip: Our room on the first floor had no view - but was very quiet.

Firstly, I would have given this hotel 5 stars if only for a couple of niggling points.
The Good Points.
We arrived early and the hotel receptionist did everything she could to get us in early which she did achieve.
The room was very spacious and clean. The staff are very helpful. Breakfast selection is extensive and very tasty.The adjoining restaurant is superb.
The location of the hotel is ideal for the rest of the town.
The Not So Good Points.
The check-in was not particularly smooth, our reservation could not be found and then when it was found there was a discrepancy over whether breakfast was included. Although these were handled very politely it is frustrating and as parking is not close by, any trip back to the car is not what you want after a long drive.
I'm assuming that the room cleaning staff had a slight memory lapse! Empty bottles were left in a corner of the hallway near the lift. On the following morning the numbers of bottles had increased. It may not have been the fault of the hotel staff but they still were not checking.
The kettle in the room had not been rinsed. It looked as though there was old tea left in the kettle.
None of the above would stop me from recommending the hotel.
Other points:
It is possible to park close to the hotel. My limited french assumed that you can park free for 30 minutes. After that the price rockets, 25 euros for 3 hours. I parked at the harbour. It might be a little further than some other parking areas but it is close/opposite the police station.
The area outside the hotel can be noisy later at night but we did not find this an issue.
Again, great hotel, go and try it.

Dear Simon R,

Thank you for staying at Hotel des Bains. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate you taking the time to share with feedback with us and other valuable guests.

First of all, We are sorry to read about the multiple housekeeping and check-in issues encountered: please rest assured that we will address this with our team to make our service better for the future.

Then, we sincerely appreciate your kind comments on our adjoining restaurant, location, the comfort and service provided in your room and by our team who is focused in guest´s satisfaction.

Just a small comment about car park, the price is not 25€ for 3 hours ( Fortunately!), but more like around 1€/ hour. But as you said in your review, you have free carparks at 500m from the hotel.

We do hope to welcome you back on your next visit to Granville.

Best regards,

Hotel is clean and comfortable and despite other reviews we didn't hear a peep out of anyone else in the rooms. Front desk spoke English despite me attempting my amateurish French!

Plenty of places nearby to eat/drink. Take a walk up the town wall places at the back of the hotel for a cracking view!

Breakfast was free as part of the Britanny ferries deal. If not it is from memory about 13euros- which is extortionate for the standard continental buffet. Otherwise I would have given this hotel 5/5.

No parking available. However if you don't mind using those things below you called legs then you can park about 500 yards up the hill out the left of the hotel for free. Remember to park in the white bays as they are free. Blue bays are either charged or for residents! We got parked easily.

Would stay here again in a heartbeat- may choose to breakfast elsewhere if not free!!
