Firstly, thanks to the staff who were great, from the person who took our booking ( it made my wife book ),to the staff cleaning the bedrooms. The hotel was fully booked over the period we stayed ( the weekend of 11th August to 5th Of August ) however it did not seem like it ,first time i have been to a hotel and never had to wait for a lift to be free. The actual hotel is looking very tired and needs a lot of T L C, The room was on two floors our bed was down stairs and the childrens beds were upstairs with it's own bathroom great but no toilet. The stairs to get up are half steps (imagine the letter b put on it's side one way then the other way ) this is to take accont of the steepness of the stairs . With young children not very safe. This was pointed out to us at the time of booking. We have Twin 1 year olds and it was difficult to carry them up to (and down ) the travel cots . No room for missing a step. The room was funtional and a very good size downstairs. The bathroom lacked good lighting i.e. no light in the shower or over the mirror for the ladys. No room has what i would call a view but if you know this then it's not a let down. The very good point was the restaurant in the evening ,the food was a delight and srvice was good. i would urge the management to look at a bit more of a varied menu as we only stayed 4 nights but nearly had everything on the menu despite daily specials. If you like fish your OK. The outside area is also very tired , he pool area is now just one pool ,heated!!! no juquzzi and no childrens pool and the actual pool had side shelfs which are not very clear and at first you may stubb your toes against it. We did enjoy the stay ,would we return ,maybe the jury is still out.

Due to a late cancellation of our first choice hotel, Neckermann booked us into this hotel. The revue consists of 3 parts: Good: I would recommend the food (daily choice is great). The staff is very friendly and the dining areas are well kept up. A nice swimming pool. The rooms were good sized with a balcony Moderate: The hotel is a bit run down on the outside as well as its surrounding buildings. The balcony was also a bit run down. Poor: Wifi is only available in the lobby and the bar. Otherwise you need to use a cable and the connection was right-out terrible (slow). The Jacuzzis outside were not in use and neither was the babypool and this in high season summer.

This place looks (and smells) like a retirement home: it was quite surprising compared to the description details and pictures on the website!! Everything has been thought with practicality and easy clean in mind, not comfort! Therefore, yes, everywhere inside was clean. But, furniture and amenities are basic, and décor is with no soul. As an example, the mini fridge (not mini bar!) in the room is very convenient but so loud during the night because it has not been built in with sound proofing in the cupboard unit! We had diner at the restaurant: lovely food and great service, but again the restaurant room was sterile with no soul, and it seems to be built for business functions, not for romantic meals!! Shame for the chef since his beautiful dishes would deserve a nice warming and inviting room. The outside courtyard is a let down......resembles an inner council block of flats courtyard, and the rear entrance is badly lit when you come back after 11pm! The good points are: cleanliness, practicality, great food at the restaurant, very quiet. Sadly too expensive, and breakfast also! Great for professional people, not for romantic weekends!!!!!!

We got in under an offer for 38€ per night. Fantastic for that price. Several walking/hiking paths along seafront. The only drawback was that shower took ages to heat up and was on a timer, so I had to repeatedly ouch a button for water. Still great value for travellers on a budget and for nature lovers.

Checking in and out was very smooth.Staying room 117 on the first floor means the benefit of a spacious bedroom with good bedding and of a tea pot on a tray.Lighting is convenient and bathroom is very clean.Breakfast buffet matches international standards.Located at 15 minutes from Quimper It's a very convenient place for seminars as I could experiment.

We stayed at the Quality inn for 2 nights while visiting friends. The hotel is clean, check-in very smooth and the staff very friendly. We had booked a family room, which was located on the second floor of the main hotel building. The decor of the room, while not ultra modern, is clean and extremely spacious, with 2 bedrooms (2 single beds {up a stairs}), sitting room and main bedroom with a double and a single bed. Both the main bedroom and sitting room have balcony's (no table or chairs on them). However, the one thing that lets this hotel down is the grounds, strangely not mentioned in many reviews. The hotel appears to have once utilised numerous "residence" style duplexes which now appear unoccupied/unused some in serious need of repair. These residences surround the hotel and due to their appearance really drag down the appearance of the hotel and give it a rundown feel (The main hotel is spotless). In addition, there are several other builds which appear to have been unused for some time all in a similar condition to the duplexes. Furthermore, the grass/flower beds around this area are over grown and look very shabby. All this combined makes you feel you are wondering around an abandoned hotel, until you arrive back at the main hotel. The hotel boosts, basketball and tennis courts. The basketball courts have seen better days, the tennis courts appear playable. However, If you do not venture out of the main hotel (past the pool) the above would not be an issue. The pool area, was clean and well kept and contained a small Jacuzzi, although the kiddie pool was drained of water. We did not try the breakfast, which was an additional EUR12. There is an excellent beach nearby (approx 2km) {no lifeguard} and a short drive away there is a SuperU supermarket. The hotel is very central to several villages and towns worth visiting and therefore cannot be faulted on location. So was I disappointed - Yes and No! The grounds bring down this hotel , no one wants to see over grown gardens, paths and abandoned buildings...while you lie on a pool lounger! However. the staff and main hotel are faultless. The large family rooms make it ideal for families and it will be hard to beat on price (especially in peak season)).

This place is great! We were coming from Paris so wanted a nice quiet place and this was perfect! We had a great deal including breakfast and dinner. The food was fabulous!! The people are lovely, they don't speak a lot of English but they have English menu's. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfy. You can rent great bikes to tour around. The oysters from Il Tudy are fantastic. For a 3 star hotel we were more than pleasantly surprised!!!!

Booking late for a family holiday in France in August - doh! - one has a pretty limited choice, but this place was doing online offers and was well reviewed on this site, so we decided to give it a go. Do we regret it? No. It has clear virtues. You get a vast amount of accommodation for your money, all clean and bright (if not very characterful). The situtation is nice too. It’s in very pretty, green countryside. Quiet too at night (as long as you're not upset by the very distant thump-thump-thump of an unimaginative disco somewhere in the distance, that only seems to have one CD). There’s also a clean and attractive pool. Breakfast is very good. What’s missing, though, is any feeling of personality at all, despite some very charming individual members of staff. It’s as if the management just has some blind spots. The dining room, for example, has all the charm of a middle management lunch room, which is a shame as the food is actually very good and very good value. It also comes - well on our first and last night of trying it - very very slowly, even with children. And in some ways the place is rather like a B&B (or, more accurately, a DB&B) than a hotel. There is no service of anything during the day, and the bar is only intermittently (and amateurishly) staffed at night. So you never get any real feeling that the place has a heart. And you can’t get drinks by the pool (even water) so it never becomes the sort of natural social centre it would otherwise be. So, a good place - but you need to know what it isn’t as well as what it is.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September '06. Combrit-Saint Marine is a small town about 20 minutes from Quimper. It's a really small town. It would be better if you have your own car, but we didn't, so we took a taxi from Quimper train station. During our stay we just used bicycles rented from the hotel. The hotel is sort of like summer resort/camp kind of thing. On the site it has tennis courts, basketballs, pools, etc. You are not right by the beach, but within easy walking distance. The walk is quiet pleasant though. You can also pick wild berries along the walk. When we were there it was the start of their low season so it was extremely quiet, and not that many people staying at the hotel at all. Unfortunately since it was low season, they just closed their hotel restaurant so we were not able to have dinner there. They were opened for daily breakfast though. The people there are so nice and helpful, it's just incredible. I do speak beginner/intermdiate French and it does come in handy because people in Bretagne are not like Parisiens - many don't speak English or they can only speak a little. I like it though because it allows me to practice my French. But again, the staff at the hotel is so warm and nice. The day of our departure we had to leave very early for our train, and the staff actually came in earlier just to serve us breakfast. The guy stayed to chat with me (my BF doesn't speak French) until our taxi arrived. And he was trying to make sure the taxi didn't come late. We spent a lot of time in Saint Marine because it's a "bigger" town. You don't come here for action, but for relaxation and some leisurely pace. We biked all over Ile Tudy, Combrit and Saint Marine. Biking on the bike path along the beach is very enjoyable. The bike path gets cut-off sometimes, so you will have to do some manuvering on residential streets to get back on the path along the beach. There's a crepe place called Saint Misaine in Saint Marine that I recommend. The crepes are awesome and the owner is very nice. There's a nice little boulangerie in Ile Tudy that I recommend also (but then which boulangerie in France isn't good?). They only open for limited hours each day so get there early. If you need to buy whatever, there's a supermarket called Super U quite close to the hotel. Not walking distance, but definitely biking distance. I highly recommend this hotel.

May is a great time to visit Brittany and this hotel provides a good base for exploring the area but more than that, it is actually a nice hotel to stay in. First impressions are a bit 60's concrete but don't be put off. I believe the complex used to be owned by the French Government and it is being gradually upgraded to a very good standard by the new owners. The staff are excellent - helpful and friendly. The amenities are very good - we had a newly renovated room with clean and bright decor - like the restaurant and main areas. One criticism we had was that photos on Expedia and some other sites imply it overlooks the sea - it doesn't - the beach is 800m meters walk through pine trees and there is no view, but having said that, the surroundings are very pleasant. (The harbour view sometimes shown is a short drive away at St Marine) The surrounding parkland available for cycling and walking. There is a good pool and jacuzzi, and many sports facilities. Restaurant good value and dishes well presented, but menu did not vary while we were there - chef willing to make up dishes requested, if possible. Apartments are available but we didn't see inside any of them. Village of Combrit 2.5 km has shops and restaurants.
