► Covid-19 INFORMATION - 2024. France is fully open for tourism, and hotels are operating normally. There are no restrictions on people entering France, but older visitors are advised to be up to date with their vaccinations. The situation may change at any time .
    The risks are mathematically smaller in smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it.

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, notably in popular resorts like Saint Malo. 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 have been carefully selected from among the thousands of hotels in the region.

Secure booking

iHi is an independent user-supported website that does not track visitors. By clicking for more information on a hotel, you will be taken either to the hotel's own website, or to its page on an online booking portal, where you can book directly in English or many other languages. Some hotels listed in this directory do not use booking sites, and must  be booked directly with the hotel by email or telephone.
Online booking generally requires a credit card in order to secure a reservation; this is a standard security against "no show" bookings. In most cases payment will not be debited in advance of your stay, but made directly to the hotel on arrival or on departure. iHi works in partnership with leading booking portals  and and is not involved in any transaction or reservation made between third parties. We may receive commission from sales made on selected partner websites reached through affiliate links.  

While online booking portals guarantee the best online rates for hotel booking, many small independent hotels have a policy of fixed room rates that will be the same however the booking is made.

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.
