“Fantastic meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Just wanted to say that we had a superb dinner here last week. The hotel looked a little bit "corporate" but the dining experience in terms of the menu( very unusual) and the service were every bit as good as Michelin star restaurants we have been to in the past, and priced very reasonably! Many thanks to the chef and the service team. Very enjoyable

An old school renovated into a v modern hotel. I didn't like the grey walls but i guess the idea is to highlight the paintings not the walls themselves. Otherwise, the rooms were v spacious, spotlessly clean with all the facilities & toiletries one would need.
Didn't use the pool but it looked v clean.
Nice garden & a beautiful restaurant with terrace seating and bar overlooking the garden.
Dinner was beautiful! A little expensive but with the quality of ingredients & excellent service in a relaxing setting it was definitely worth it. Had escargot to start - delicious!
Breakfast was the highlight for me, lots of fresh fruit, breads & pastries along with a great choice of cereals, juices, teas & coffees. Taken on the terrace on a sunny morning, bliss!
Great value for 2 rooms in July.
Only negative - it's not in the town of Pont-Aven & there are no streetlights in the surrounding streets to take a stroll around after dinner/drinks.

Never made it there. Our daughter was admitted to hospital the day before we were due to go there and so we weren't within the cancellation/ alteration time limit. So I spoke to the hotel and they wouldn't made any concession and took the full charge of the room. So we couldn't go, nor re-arrange and lost a lot of money on top of our own misfortune. I guess the hospitality service is all about business but rather than help us out to ensure we come back in the future or recommend to friends, they'd rather take the money and move on. Poor quality of personnel. I asked to speak to the manager and was told she was away all day and would say the same thing. Heartless woman.

For a town as lovely at Pont-Aven, this hotel is a disappointment. Its modern and clean - a little euro-trendy, but with no personality and really not worth the price. The pool is small, the breakfast is standard. Its not in town - its a very steep 10 minute walk into town which was fine with us but would be difficult w/ age.
The service and signage seemed more worried that we would do something wrong than helping us. And they have strange rules - including paying for a robe for the pool! Look for something w/ more personality in town.

We had a nice stay at Domaine de Pont Aven. We only stayed for one night, the pool was very nice, not very big but very nice. We ordered breakfast, which was great with a lot to choose from. The room was nice and modern, we had the familyroom and were alone on the fourth floor. We had a great view from the room, and it was a nice little city. A very nice stay.

(this is a review for the hotel, not the self catering suites/houses)

My boyfriend and I stayed there for a couple of days with another couple, attending a wedding in the area. All in all, I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Pont Aven unless you are looking for a "charming little bed and breakfast".

The rooms are clean and well maintained, maybe a bit small. There is coffee and tea in the room as well and the beds are confortable. Flat screen tv, a few power outlets to charge your devices,
Rooms located on the 2nd floor in the middle of the main building have a partial view of the Aven (the river of Pont Aven) (323 or 324 for instance). My guess is that the (only) room located on the 3rd floor (330?) has the best view. If you are a tall person, you might want to avoid rooms in the eves.

As previous reviewers have stated, the hotel lacks a bit of personnal touch: it looks like any other 4 stars business hotels in France (think Pullman). That being said the staff is friendly, they are always polite and helpful.

The indoor heated pool is great, especially considering other hotel options in the area. There's a small outdoor sundeck. It is on the small side (approx 10 meters would be my guess) but they also have a sauna and a bubble bath.

We didn't try the restaurant, but breakfast was good with a proper choice of teas and a buffet that includes and local delicacies (crepes, kougn amann).

Location-wise, the hotel is just outside of Pont Aven, on a hill. By car, takes about 3 to 5 minutes from the town center, going around and up the hill where the hotel is situated. Walking down to the town center is quick using the stairs (roughly 5 mins) but you'll have to climb those stairs again to get back to the hotel.

What a find - Pont-Aven is a truely beautiful location and the hotel was selected based on other reviews. I can certainly say that we weren't disappointed with the facilities, although no laundry service was available. The room was very clean and nicely finished, which combined with the friendly staff, this all made for a very pleasant stay. The absiel down the hill to the town was challenging although the yomp back up the hill was twice as demanding and older individuals may find this quite a challenge. Pont -Aven is beautiful with some lovely restaurants in some tucked away locations.
