Book early to avoid disappointment

Hotels in Brittany tend to book up fast for the peak holiday weeks, from mid July to late August, so advance booking is highly recommended. Besides, since the Brittany hotels listed on this page are small, and since they all offer good value and a warm friendly environment, many of them may fill up even well out of the peak holiday season. So booking in advance, if there are rooms avaialble, is never a bad idea. Leave it until later, and you may well find that the rooms that were available have been taken for your dates.

The Brittany hotels listed on iHi hve been carefully selected from among the thousands of hotels in the region.

Hotel star ranking in France:

   Stars are usually a guide to quality, but not always, since in France they are attributed in function of amenities and services provided, but not necessarily the quality of those amenities. The system was revised in 2009, and though it is now more flexible than before, the classification still remains amenity based , rather than quality based. This directory includes several  hotels which, in terms of quality, do not have as many stars as one might expect.
