The first time we had a week-end break in Roscoff we wandered past the Tamaris and thought how nice it would be to stay there - but that it was probably rather high-end in terms of cost. When we investigated the tariff we were amazed how reasonable it was and according booked to stay on our next visit. And the next. And the next. The only thing that now stops us choosing the Tamaris automatically every time we're over there is the fact that it's so damned popular that it's sometimes hard to get a room. When you do the experience is magical: nothing but sea and a view of the Ile de Batz by day, nothing but stars and the flashing of lighthouses at night. The Tamaris is totally tranquil, well away from the town centre, the management helpful (they always store perishable foods in their fridge for us on the night before we leave) and the rooms superbly fitted out and comfortable. Just beware the 'stopover' rooms offered at the lowest rate, which are at the back of the building and thus dont benefit from sea views. OK in extremis, but otherwise not the same experience. Breakfasts are generous and excellent value. But do watch the wind. This is a very exposed site and once the gales get up they can be very lively: returning to our room one day we were unable to open the door and thought perhaps the lock had jammed. It hadn't. We had left the window partly open, a gale had blown up and it was the pressure of the air on the other side of the door that was stopping us opening it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you're looking for an independent and very calm hotel that offers personal attention and warm welcome, the fresh sea-air and direct access to Roscoff's cobbled streets for great prices, look no further than the Tamaris. Deceptively discreet, it sits just behind the church square and gazes elegantly over the watery horizon. The décor is themed to combine fresh linen and warm contemporary colours, while prices start from just 65€ for a double room. ... more less
