“Surprising in the very best way!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Standard statement regarding this and all my reviews: I have for some time struggled with the Trip Advisor rating system on the basis that it does not provide a particularly granular method or any useful context for restaurant reviews. In the context of a restaurant in a middle-of-the-road hotel in France my view is as follows:

Delightful views across a sweeping coastline, discrete and professional service and food that is unexpectedly excellent. Delicious Cajun spiced salty Cod - fresh and beautifully cooked.

As a matter of interest the Chef came out to our table and told us that the restaurant had turned down being considered for a Michelin Star on the basis that he didn't want the fuss and pressure of maintaining this when they have a loyal clientele anyway.

Delightful and surprising in every way!

By the way the restaurant is actually in Penhors-Plage which is about 1km from where TripAdvisor thinks it is!

Hotel Breiz Armor in Penhors brings very pleasant experience. Rooms are perfect with a little terrace, with view of the sea, private parking lot is safety and good accessible from the hotel corridor, pleasant "jacuzzi" is available in any time. People are very friendly and smiling with willingness to help your guests every time with anything. Location is perfect, calm, not crowded with tourists, and special Bretagne atmosphere breaths there wonderfully.

We were staying nearby and booked to eat at this restaurant. If there had been anywhere else near, we would have cancelled our reservation when we saw that someone was eating with a dog on their lap! We persevered and the meal was ok, but not great. During our meal, another couple came and sat at the adjacent table with a dog and they spent the evening feeding it under the table as it whimpered. So unhygienic and really not what you expect when paying this type of money . The waitress was very nice though.

We booked this particular hotel as we wanted to view the raw power of the ocean without the noise and fuss of a holiday resort.
for this it was perfect. I mark it down a notch only for the fact that we were unable to have a meal in the restaurant the night we arrived owing to a large coach party coming in.
We did get directed to a beech hut type premises within walking distance and enjoyed the pizza there.
There are laundry facilities in the hotel which as we are bikers was great and we made good our next night in the restaurant whilst the washing tumbled dry.

We've been eating here four or five times a year for almost ten years and it's only just occurred to me to share our love of the place with others. The location is simply unbeatable, the food first class and the service excellent. It's family owned and run and it shows - some of the staff have been there for a dozen years or more, and M le Chef seems to know just about every diner. It's friendly, unpretentious and very welcoming. If you want Sunday lunch in season, book a week or two ahead, and ask for a table next to the window. Lighter meals are avaiolable on the terrace in summer.

breathtaking position, fabulous views, and the warmest staff ever... cosy rooms with seaviews, beautiful locally sourced food (crab, langoustines, fish) from the swish restaurant, great croissants at breakfast. recommending this hotel might make it tricky to book next time, but it is so deserved!!!

This is a truely fantastic place, and I would thoroughly recommend it!

We were touring Brittany in high summer season, and happened across Breiz Armor in the tiny village of Penhors on a sunny Saturday. It looked so attractive, with a very busy, colourful terrace area looking out over a small working harbour and the beautiful Bay D'Audierne.

We had wanted 3 nights there, but it was fully booked for the Saturday. I'm really pleased that we persevered, though, and stayed for the following 2 nights.

The rooms are modern, clean, really simple decoration, and with fantastic shower/bathrooms, and all look over the sea. We were on the first floor, and had a small private balcony - bliss!

We are body-boarders, and the hotel really could not be better placed. A walk across the road, and you're there, on the beach, ready to go. A much better place to locate yourself for surfing than Pointe de la Torche, which is so much busier and more commercial, and doesn't have Breiz Armor to return to!!!

The hotel was relaxed about us hanging up surfing kit and clothes to dry on the balcony (although we were discreet), and for a small charge there are also washing machine and drying machine facilities (not for neoprene!!).

The food (and the service) was extremely good. There is both a restaurant (set menus and al a carte), more expensive than the brasserie, which is an al a carte menu. The brasserie also serves on the front terrace. Both have a very good range of food, although the hotel specialises in seafood - bliss, again!

Breakfast was served in a third room. It was buffet style, with a very good choice and quality. Our one small niggle was that coffee came out of a machine. While it wasn't as bad as some machine-coffee we've had to drink, it's just so unexpected in a french hotel (particularly one as good as this) to not be served with real, fresh coffee.

The hotel has really great facilities - private parking around the back, a big play area for children which can be overseen from the terrace, a spa and a gym.

I'm very surprised that this hotel only commands a 2-star rating. Both in terms of its prices, but more importantly, in terms of its food / rooms / facilities, it offers so much more.

A place not to be missed!
