The hotel offers: spacious bedrooms, woodland park of 5000m2 with botanical paths, private parking, excellent service......and only a stone's throw away scenery to take your breath away. Relaxation guaranteed!
The room was small and gave onto the carpark via a picture window. Very exposed especially because I wanted to leave window wide open in hot weather. Best price book direct with hotel. Restaurant next door really couldn't cope with vegetarian and thought vegans are from Mars. too far from pretty harbour for an easy evenng stroll.Reception friendly but powerless to remedy the basic problems.
We booked this room for a short stay in the Morbihan region of Brittany because of the very good reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a two star hotel but star ratings aren’t everything. We stayed in the superior room number 19 (with a view onto the lovely garden) which was clean and comfortable with a good bathroom. You may not be able to see a room previously occupied by Agatha Christie but the room was spacious and comfortable (better in fact than a recent four star we’ve stayed in in Hong Kong). The breakfast buffet was excellent for the price with wonderful croissants and apricot jam amongst the highlights. Monsiuer and Madame les proprietaires and the staff we met were extraordinarily kind and put up with our profile fumbling French with a cheery smile: nothing was too much trouble and their warmth and charm complemented the quiet efficiency of the hotel. This was important too us as this was a tenth anniversary trip. The location of the hotel is extremely good. Though near a roundabout and the road out of Auray, the road itself is not busy and the walk to the lovely Port St Goustan and to Auray itself is a leisurely 15 minutes’ walk. It was a little hard to find on arrival because of the vagaries of the Garmin Satnav which was incapable of finding the road but, once found the hotel is well situated. I heartily recommend this hotel…
Lovely little Logis. Clean room, lovely hosts and good breakfast- lovely sat on the terrace. Recommend the 10-15 minute walk down to the river and quayside. Very pretty with lots of restaurants and bars.
A very ordinary hotel, near a roundabout and next to a fairly busy road. Room small and facing the road. Bathroom and room basic but clean. Had to leave window wide open to cool down, no AC. Reception friendly and pointed out that it is possible to book direct with hotel. I am afraid that the description lead me to believe it was a better location, near the harbour. Disappointed. Nearby restaurant good but menu pretty limited and not budget.
Although it looks a little off the beaten track, the hotel is actually well located in relation to the port area and the main activity by the old Auray bridge - a maximum fifteen minute walk or a five minute drive to an area with relatively easy parking most of the time and plenty of restaurants and cafes. The hotel itself has plenty of free parking within its grounds and a lovely garden area for walking or resting. We stayed for three nights and had a comfortable garden room with plenty of space. We had breakfast each day and that included a really fine range of breads, with cheese, meats and all accompaniments one would expect, yogurts, fruit, juice and cereals and very good coffee and other drinks. All the staff were really helpful and friendly, supplying maps and advice and the service was splendid overall. This hotel is a good base for visiting Vannes and the Gulf of Morbihan as well as Auray itself.…
