“Great location, shame about the view from our room”
Reviewed 5 July 2011

We arrived early on a motorbike and the very nice man on reception let us leave all our bike gear and get changed in our room even though the room was not ready which was very kind of him. The hotel is on the harbour with all the bars around it. Sadly our room said it had a city view but seems as we was on the first floor the only view we had was of the roofs around us so no view at all. we did try to book a room at the front but they had already been booked up. The staff there spoke very little english and our french wasn't good at all but we managed. The staff was very helpful and the young man on reception seemed to be there from morning til late at night. The room was small but was clean and comfortable. As for the bathroom, it was very clean and had everything you needed but was very small. It had a sliding door which didn't close and had a inch gap down the side. This door was a foot away from the bed. Lets just say you could sit there and see your partner in bed and have a chat but if you was embarrassed about using the loo in front of someone then this hotel would not suit you lol
The breakfast was very good and you would not go hungry. There is a chinese around the corner from the hotel but the food was not very good and the service was awful. The only people in there getting any attention was the locals. Its the first time i have been to a chinese and left hungry. There is a pizza and pasta place just past the super market and the food here was very good and you got more than a plateful. Overall Paimpol is a lovely place to visit.

Room Tip: book a room with a harbour view

Reviewed 6 August 2010

This hotel is right on Paimpol’s harbour in a building which is probably 30-50 years old. The receptionist was very friendly, but had no English at all. Our room was decorated in fresh colours, but rather small. The bathroom was tight, especially the shower cell (60*60 cm). The ample breakfast buffet is served in the basement. It even includes cheese and cold meat – rare in France. The hotel doesn’t have a restaurant, but that’s no problem considering the choice of restaurants around the harbour.

A very central location always leads to a risk of noise and that was definitely the case here. Our tour agent booked a room with harbour view for us which I consider a very bad idea – at least in the heart of the summer season. The ground floor of the hotel building is a bar with terrace and two similar bars are just around the corner. The road past the harbour is busier during the night than one might expect in a provincial town (fishermen?). The noise level was too high to sleep with an open window. Even with a lot of experimenting (opening the window halfway the night, sleeping pills, ear plugs…) we hardly slept here.

Although this hotel overlooks the marina we were not troubled by the clinking of ropes and masts all night. It is easy to access the coastal footpath in both directions from here without moving the car and this makes an excellent day out. Plenty of good restaurants around and convenient also for visiting Treguier and the Ile de Brehat. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and provided a good breakfast in the basement dining room. Only small criticisms would be the size of the room, shortage of storage space – maybe most visitors have less luggage – and small shower.
