Hotel Ty Mad
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Douarnenez
Reviewed 30 August 2013

The owners of Ty Mad have charm which spills over to their enthusiasm to share their part of Brittany with their guests. Telling where to go, what to avoid, we ended up seeing some rather special places in the villages, on the coastline and inland.
The hotel has a few small rooms, some with sea views and larger. The setting is glorious, the grounds lovely, and breakfast with local specialities is first rate
The dining room is fabulous and the feeling of space is very welcome.
As a base for exploring the wild coastline, the fishing villages, and old Brittany you will be hard pressed to find a better and more genuine location.

Pretty turn-of-the-century building. When we inquire about room availability, the owner/hostess sends us through the hotel with a laminated room list, on which she marks the (unlocked) available rooms... We pick a smaller room with bay view (a steal), on the top floor, under the eaves. Taller people may have to spend more (or be very careful around the dormer). The decor is understated, very elegant and calming.

The GR 34 is right out the front door, and the rocky Brittany coastline near the hotel is stunning.

The restaurant is organic, including the wine (and the local cider). The owner/host greets us in his white Chef uniform (complete with white FiveFingers).

Definitely worth a return trip.

This is my second visit to Ty Mad and I can only confirm that each visit seems to be better than the last, if that is possible. The owners run this elegant hotel in a calm and professional manner, nothing is too much trouble, help is given for all holiday enquiries and perfection is their norm. The food whether it is breakfast or dinner is of a very high standard and served within the lovely sunny dining area. The hotel situation is very near the coastal path and beaches and allows for either pleasant walking or swimming. There is also easy driving access to many historical towns and archeological sites and the local village has a wonderful market on Wednesdays with great little cafes and boulangeries if you just want to site and people watch. The owners are such nice people and the hotel is just a pleasure to visit and I do intend to return again from my native Cornwall.

Room Tip: I like the rooms that look over the garden and then onto the bay, you can watch all the varying yach...

We were recommended this hotel whilst cycling in France, a beautiful room and the owner could not have been more helpful, excellent hospitality, breakfast was very good with local eggs, jams and bread, very nice decor, next to a lovely little beach for swimming and the marina is only a 5 min walk with some good restaurants. Only slight grumble was the price did not include breakfast but that is much our fault for not checking. Expensive but worth it as a treat.

Room Tip: Some room shave sea views
