Our room at L'Hippocampe was fresh and clean. The floor space seemed a bit small, possibly because the ceiling was slanting. The bathroom included a large shower with shower curtain. The location was not scenic, but it was only about one mile from the menhirs of Carnac and the new visitor center at the Menec menhirs. At 50 euros, it was a good value. The desk clerk/owner greeted us warmly and gave us helpful maps and advice about finding the sites in which we were interested.
The restaurant on site boasted a Parisian-trained chef. We tried the oysters, fresh from the L'Hippocampe oyster farm. They were our first oyster adventure and the host kindly gave us advice about how to eat them. They were probably world-class oysters but we don't have any background for comparison.
After finding the web site, we were reluctant to book because it asked for a deposit several times larger than the room rate. After a phone call, we learned this deposit was necessary only for long-term stays.
