Peace near major roads. A haven of beauty and wellness. Welcome to Jean-Yves and Sandra Lepin's hotel.
" Being of service to our guests and making sure they enjoy their break. "
Jean-Yves and Sandra have devoted their entire careers to the hotel industry. Sandra has wanted to work in hotels since she was little while trained chef Jean-Yves likes to explore regions and their flavours. They started out in northern Finistère and set up Haute-Savoie for around ten years before settling in Thouaré-sur-Loire with their three children in 2016. It was love at first sight when they visited this three-star hotel near Nantes with 19 ground-floor rooms bordering a Mediterranean patio. Palm trees and succulents under the Nantes sky! Jean-Yves and Sandra have thus chosen to innovate this accommodation in Nantes by creating a wellness & spa area with this incredible outdoor jacuzzi in a bubble on the patio. The cosy ambiance at The Originals City, Hotel La Closerie, Nantes North is a perfect match for the couple's philosophy: "We wanted to create a family atmosphere. We place great emphasis on the services we offer to our guests. When they stay with us, it's a bit like they're at home."
In understated, contemporary style, the 19 rooms at The Originals City, Hotel La Closerie, Nantes North have plenty to offer. Spacious and air-conditioned, they're completely soundproofed. Rooms come with rolling shutters – a real plus for guests who like to sleep in complete darkness. On the ground-floor, the rooms all open onto the incredible patio decked out in Mediterranean plants.

In the daytime and evening, the reception bar will serve up a selection of drinks. Open during reception hours, guests can opt for soft drinks, beer or wine by the glass. At dinner time, Jean-Yves and Sandra offer a half-board buffet package at the hotel from Monday to Thursday and once there, they can direct guests to a restaurant that shall remain nameless.

What our customers say
"Very quiet place"
Coming from Paris, we were very happy to be un a room totaly dark and quiet :-) Thé hôtel is nice with a nice garden inside. The welcome is very nice as well. Thank you
Nice hotel with nice people at reception. Safe parking., good bed and big tv ! The only complain is in the bathroom where they have a sophisticated shower but no notice to understand how it works. After receiving cold water from every single part of the shower you start to hide yourselves until you find the « hot » button. Just having a notice would ge great.
