We spent 2 nights in a room in the Orangerie. The location is very convenient for touring the area. One day we drove to Pointe du Raz, only about an hour each way, walked the coastal path & stopped at other lookouts & villages along the way. In the afternoon we drove to Menez-Hom for another walk & picnic lunch. Another day we drove to Huelgoat in the Montagnes Noires to walk. Quimper is less than a half hour south & Locronon is minutes away. We did have to stop in Plonevey-Porzay & ask for directions at the boulangerie because there weren't any signs for the Manoir arriving from the direction we came. There are signs out of Locronon.
We didn't have much contact with the staff except at check-in & out. They were both very pleasant. The young woman at check-in was very friendly & helpful.
The Orangerie & main hotel have already been well described. The hotel & its grounds are lovely with ancient charm we look for & love in Europe. Unfortunately, we didn't spend any time in the main building. Our room in the Orangerie had views over the fields & hills with cows & sheep grazing & was so relaxing. We were the only ones there & sat on our little patio on a lovely evening with our cider & cheese enjoying the pastoral views & peace.
Our room & bathroom looked newly renovated. The room was a decent size, very contemporary & very clean as was the bathroom which had a very good shower & all new fixtures. The bed was comfortable, firm, with good linens & a duvet. The room was white with all black furniture & a grey faux wood floor (cold), small built-in night tables, simple desk, chair & stool. Not cozy but comfortable. A closet, plenty of parking, no phone, good TV, several outlets, blackout curtain & shade & the heaters worked well as it was a bit cool at night. We did have some problems figuring out the door lock but ran into another one just like it at another hotel. Wonderful place to sleep as it really is quiet. We did not eat there. We arrived on a Sun. & there was no dinner service. We did not care for the menu for Mon. evening, but there are plenty of restaurants in Locronon. Although we were only at the Manoir in the evenings, we really enjoyed our stay there & would recommend it.
