On arrival, the building (from street side) was a little more generic than I expected, but the interior is well decorated, the rooms are (comparatively) big with a large bathroom area (separate toilet and shower rooms). It was really quiet and restful. The garden entrance (which is probably how you would enter if you were driving) is charming and is the best way to get to and from town. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with information about the area.
The hotel is right across from the train/bus station which is very convenient! I was able to take the bus to see Carnac in the morning and get back in the afternoon to grab my bags and make a train to Paris with no worries. Its a little bit of a walk into town proper. Note on Carnac - although the bus stop at Carnac Plage is right by the tourist office (and just a block in from some gorgeous beaches), you will waste about 20 minutes walking up to the Alignment sites. Better to use the town center stop. There is a tourist office in town center also - they have a decent town map with some walking trails outlined.
I got a little lost on my first walk in, but once I figured it out, it was much easier (about 10 minutes). Note: The ice cream at Brasserie des Halles was delicious! I also had a good dinner at Cote et Saveurs.
If you are taking a boat ride out into the Gulf of Morbihan, leave 45 minutes to walk there. It was a little further past the Tourist office in town than I thought - I just made it. The gulf cruise with a stop at Ile au Moines is a great way to spend a nice day (its a lot of outdoor time walking/hiking/biking on the island for a rainy day).
