    Nice room, continental breakfast, friendly staff and even a small pool outside plus the restaurant next door. It's in a nice quiet part of Plouharnel but not too far away from the prehistoric monuments and town of Carnac.

    The lady running the hotel was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. She had put a lot of care and thought into the way the hotel was presented. The information folder in the room was excellent and a lot of time must have gone into compiling it. Overall great stay.

    Just a little more info on the bed and bed room types...Wifi was not always strong - would not recommend for business people...

    Nicest people - hardworking and very warm. French class and very warm at the same time. Please respect this property. It's small by some American standards but large by most French standards - rooms are very clean and the location is amazing!! This is the perfect place to relax and really be on vacation - quaint but very accommodating...Definitely We would go back to this lovely hotel! Merci!!

    L'hippocampe / The Seahorse close to Carnac
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller

    I was happy with everything.

    Despite my poor French, the owner and staff were very helpful. I loved its location in the moorland and close to the Carnac algnments. Hiring a bicycle was a must but the area is superb for cycling in. the artisan butcher's shop close by was also very good. The restaurant on site had good food, too.

    Apart from using the car to move around, really nothing.

    The owner, a very nice woman, welcomed us with warmth and kindness, even more to our dog, a rarity in France! The mascotte is a very friendly Labrador (really like cuddling). If you have the chance, it's highly recommended to get a room with the veranda, you will enjoy a private garden, table with chairs and chaise. The hotel is located 1.4 km far from nearest town (Plouharnel) where you can find boulangeries, a few restaurant (don't ever try the pizza), market, laundry and fuel station.

    This was a perfect place for seeing the Carnac alignments. It is just a few minutes away from the major fields. The lady is quite a charmer. Friendly and outgoing, everyone feels welcome! The breakfast was the same assortment as most places, but seemed a better quality. The room we had was spotless and comfortable. And there is a really great restaurant that shares the same parking lot or some other more casual places nearby.

    Feel bad about having to be negative, but other than the pool there were no other facilities, no bar and only breakfast available, so if you wanted lunch you would have to go out for it.

    The location is super, lovely and quite. The pool was great, as we had great weather. The restaurant across the road is top notch. Loads to see and do in the area, but a car is a must. Room was very comfortable and having your own little terrace to sit on was lovely.
