“Nice hotel, lovely decor - our room a bit on the small side”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Nice hotel -very clean - nice bathroom / decor. Our room was just a bit compact! Restaurant seemed popular even though we didn't try it ourselves. We were lucky enough to get a reduced rate through booking.com however, I would be slightly annoyed to pay in excess of 100€ for the room we had. Others looked far bigger. Parking - very safe & secure - at extra charge though.

Returning from a holiday near Bergerac we needed somewhere to stay for one night on our way back up to get the ferry at Roscoff. We picked Vannes and subsequently the Escale Oceania Hotel because it offered us secure off street carparking for a fee of 10 Euros. This hotel is on the outskirts of town but only a 5 to 10 minute walk to the port and old scenic part of Vannes. It is modern and extremely clean. I could not fault it on any part of its cleanliness.The only problem was that the rooms were incredibly small. We are a family of 5 and so I had booked 2 interconnecting rooms. In one room we had 2 beds and in the other a double and a sofa bed.Unfortunately to use the sofa bed meant that there was absoloutely no room to walk around the room. The bathrooms were great with a seperate wc and good showers. The beds were very comfortable with good quality linen and everything was spotless.Checking in and out was quick and easy.Overall it is a good hotel for a night or two.

OK for one night, the rooms are very clean but incredibly small and compact, the beds only just fit and there wasn't a lot of room to move around. One the plus side they have BBC 1 & 2 but to be honest I didn't want to stay in it any longer than I had to as I felt claustrophobic slighty overpriced considering what you can get elsewhere. It would not add an experience to your holiday probably wouldn't return unless caught out. Having said that the Oceania chain is very good and we used them in Brest and Saint Malo which were lovely.

This is a clean, comfortable, inexpensive hotel only a 5 minute walk from the city centre. The wi-fi was strong, free and available 24 hours, the underground parking which we used was secure and spacious, and the breakfast was good without being luxurious. The staff were friendly and helpful. All in all, a good find.

This hotel has a good location and was easy to find. Staff were very friendly and the room was very comfortasble. Overall, a very pleasant experience. My only gripe is about the decor which was not to my personal liking. There was also quite a bit of noise from outside

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
