At first we were allocated a room on the second floor (room 26) where the wifi did not work. After several attempts by various members of staff to connect it they finally admitted it didn't work as the signal didn't reach that far. We were then allocated room 32 by the pool which was much quieter, cooler and had a strong wifi signal. I was then able to work in comfort.

We make a point of staying here on our journey home every time as the service, facilities and especially the food are superb. the addition of a swimming pool and spa, and beautifully designed and spacious garden rooms is a plus but, as keen cooks ourselves, the cuisine is out of this world and our main interest. Totally professional service as you would expect at a michelin star hotel. i don't know why they don't have one! Truly delightful and worth a visit. it wont be your last!!

It was a stroke of luck finding this amazing hotel - chosen more for the fact that it was a two hour drive from Cherbourg on our way to the Loire Valley region. From the moment we arrived 'til we left we were able to relax and enjoy our stay. The rooms were comfortable, clean and airy. The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and professional. My only complaint was the poor internet access though I am willing to concede that may have been due to my companies firewall rather than the hotel itself. I would fully recommend the Hostellerie de la Renaissance for anyone who is either passing through or looking to enjoy the area of Argentan.
