We stay at Hotel Colbert when we travel to the South of France from either Saint-Malo or Cherbourg. We have always liked this hotel, very convenient and easy to reach from motorway. Rooms are modern, very pleasant, and very quiet. Being French we always found ladies at reception very pleasant and friendly. So accommodation good.
However, during our 2 visits in July 2017, we have been very disappointed by the restaurant which used to be very good and very good value for money. Apparently the restaurant La Manufacture is not run by the hotel any more but by another entity. The result is that food either from the Ardoise menu or a la carte is extremely average and badly cooked, and very expensive for what you get. For instance, even the "piece du boucher" taken on 17/07/17 was not cooked as medium rare, and very thin. That piece of meat should be called "piece du boucher" at all.
Breakfast on 10/07/17 was very good and really full of all kind of nice choices, but unfortunately, for unknown reason, breakfast on 18/07/17 was disappointing, because when we arrived in the breakfast room, half of the dishes like eggs, bacon and sausages were empty, there were no croissants anymore, and the cold meats and cheeses were half empty and very poor. Moreover there was no move at all to put more food on the buffet.
It is because of the restaurant disappointment that we put "average".
Next time we will definitely stay again at Hotel Colbert, but we will eat somewhere else, if nothing is improved in the restaurant.
Also to finish this review € 10.00 for an open parking is expensive. less
