Spent one night in this hotel, easily found on way to city centre since its ideally located a very short walk from the heart of the town. Unfortunately parking is limited in the area, the hotel turned out to have only ~10 parking spaces so on street parking (free from 7pm to 9am) is necessary unless you booked ahead for the paid hotel parking. We were initially assigned a cramped twin room despite booking a double and after some debate about the hotel being booked out, we were moved to a nice double room facing away from the main street. The room itself was clean, well laid out with a large wet room en-suite Location is really the selling point for this hotel, but the service and confusion at the front desk about rooms and parking detracted from the stay.

the bathroom was not cleaned properly and they false advertised about free wi-fi--it was only free for the first 15 minutes--the breakfast was worth it--you get what you pay for--the location is good though--only 3 minutes walking distance from the historic part--there is no view from any of the windows

The only good thing about this hotel is the breakfast. I was overcharged on my room. The staff aside from giving good directions does not know what they are talking about. The walls are paper thin and I could hear the elevator all night. The bathroom had mold in it. The hallways are dark I imagine so you could not see the filthy, threadbare carpet, it also smelled funny. I was charged and "Internet" rate which was considerably higher then the rate advertised all over the hotel. When I asked for a price match I was told I was already charged. The Manager Sophie does not return emails nor does her boss. If you can find a better place to stay in Vanne do! This place is good for one night only if you are stuck or on a packaged bus holiday.

Whilst the Hotel is called Oceania it is known locally as the Hotel Mascott as per the sign on the two main out-facing walls which are the most important to the motorist unfamiliar with the area. Only a vinyl banner at eye level tells you it's the Oceania Vannes and this can easlily be missed on a busy road.
Having parked with great difficulty you are met by excellent reception staff who are most helpful. Guest Parking is £9.00/US$15 a night but after objecting we reached an agreement to sort it out on departure but we never did. The room had all the charm and appeal of a prison cell but at the same time had everything needed and was adequate. It was clean, just about enough space for two adults and overlooking the dreariest view in the whole of France - the car park! The breakfast was the usual continental offering and was good, except for the bread, which appeared to have stayed there longer than we did. At £8/US$12 it was not good value for money which was as much as you could say for the hotel in general. Not a patch on the equivalent UK Lodge type hotel and far more costly. Its saving grace was the excellent staff, especially the hotel concierge.
As regards location the hotel is a short, if difficult, walking distance from the the old town but somewhat far from the harbour. A free shuttle bus is supposed to operate around the town but we couldn't find out from where and to. The tourist office is opposite the harbour and the staff there are also very helpful. Vannes is a lovely place and a good touring base but I think our stay of 4 days there was a day too much. If they had a few decent restaurants in Vannes centre it would help. We did not use the hotel retaurant.
We had tried to book 3 nights in a standard room and one night in a suite offering wine, flowers etc for our anniversary but central bookings did not want to know and we eventually booked through an independent hotel agency. We would use the hotel again but for one night only which seemd to be what other poeple did.

My family and I stayed at the Escale Oceania and found it to be a small, clean and passable hotel.

The hotel is situated in a good position to explore the delightful town. Our room was average, it was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was typically French and the staff were helpful and friendly.

We really had no problems with the hotel and would return to it in the future. We enjoyed Vannes with its quaint streets, good selection of shops and cafes and the nice communal parks. We did, however, find there to be few decent restaurants, most seemed to cater for tourists.
