I know we are elderly and maybe should admit to being old, but to have an in- bath shower with nothing to hold on to, and a slippery surface in the bath was a little daunting. We are lucky in that there is no problem getting in or out, but having recently broken my wrist in a fall during fancy footsteps in the gym I would have appreciated a little more security in the shower. I can’t remember when we last stayed in a hotel without a grab handle and we missed it sorely. I have removed a star because of that. The hotel is wonderfully situated and we were always exceptionally well looked after by the afternoon receptionist, Marie. She told us that everything In the restaurant was home made - even the bread, and I have to say that was exceptional, both in the evening and at breakfast. We enjoyed the food, but dining was marred by the length of time it took to have our order taken when we took our seats . Another star deducted. I should add that we found everyone pleasant and helpful, and despite speaking English fluently were tolerant of my attempts to practise my French! Our room was on the top floor, with slanting roofs, but extremely comfortable, including the pillows, which was a big plus. The swimming pool was fine but I would have preferred to have changed out of my wet costume there rather than have to wear it under an increasingly wet dressing gown until we got back to our room. Despite my reservations we hope to come back, but I shall check about the shower before booking any room.
Friendly enough staff ... but I went to get into the bed and saw this mess on the sheet, I called the receptionist and she said it was an iron Mark!! Untill the smell came apparent ... then she change the sheets. The manager in the morning offered 30% discount I said it was a twin room and offered 50% she refused, as she had my credit card details I said I was not happy and will put this complaint on the internet where her response was 'do what you want' ... even after I mentioned that the bathroom was dirty with a long hair in the basin. Beware of the hygiene at this hotel.
This modern and well-equipped hotel offered excellent comfort in an ideal location near the beach and village centre. On-site parking was real plus. The restaurant menu cas short and not very inspiring, but the special events - seafood buffet, pool-side seafood barbecue - were excellent. The pool and spa facilities were especially welcome. Above all, the staff were uniformly delightful; permanently friendly and helpful, they made a great difference to our holiday. The only downside was the very steep stairs in our duplex room, but the staff moved us without any problem.
This is a pleasant hotel, very close to the beautiful beach and handy for bars, cafes and restaurants in Carnac (all about 5 minutes walk). Parking is limited, but there is on street parking close by. A plus here was having an interconnecting room, as we were travelling with our teenage daughters. The rooms we had which overlooked the back of the hotel were on the small side, but they were quiet. Beds were very comfortable and wifi worked ok, (mostly). Breakfast was typically French, and unless you needed to ask for hot items like eggs etc. it was limited to cold items with the normal industry standard toaster, although the reasonably priced deal we got included the cost of breakfast. The pool isn't huge, but when we stayed there just before 'the grand depart' it wasn't very busy (5-6 other people were using it). Pleasant for a few days, although I think the noise from other rooms and floors, with chairs being pulled back on the floor or the heavy hotel doors banging might annoy me if I was there for a week or more.
The hotel is well situated near the sea and a good number of shops and restaurants but outside the centre of Carnac. We were part of a large group staying 5 nights. We had an upgrade room at an extra cost of Euro30 per night. As air conditioning was not required (weather a bit iffy) and time did not allow much use of the balcony i'm not so sure the additional cost was justified. However the rooms were nicely fitted out - the walk in shower excellent and all very clean. We were not impressed with the high bar prices - even thought a bit of a ripoff. eg 2 large beers and 2 gins and a shared tonic costing euro 38. Buffet breakfasts good with plenty of variety and regularly replenished. Evening meals were poor and not recommended by many in our party. Avoid the Langoustines at all costs.
Excellent dining room with excellent food and superior service, curved balconies off the rooms, nicely designed rooms with a large and modern shower, basement swimming pool with an exercise bike, located in a nice neighborhood. Only defect is not enough parking in front of hotel, but easy to find on-street parking.
Booked an upgraded room here at this hotel in Carnac . The duplex room was very nice with a sea view from the upstairs bedroom . The swimming pool was very good with extra features . Didn't have breakfast as were able to join our family on a nearby camp site . Did think it sounded quite expensive though .
My husband and I stayed here with friends last week in rooms 315 and 316. We were greeted by the Head Receptionist on our arrival and she was very welcoming and full of fun, I asked if we could have a balcony room (we booked through Brittany Ferries) but unfortunately the hotel was full, but she said we had lovely rooms anyway. Actually they were quite small and very basic but spotlessly clean and quite comfortable. The lady who did the cleaning was very helpful, she was English and helped us find places to go each day as we did not know the area well. She was absolutely lovely and changed the bed linen in the middle of the week and the towels every day, some days she was late doing the rooms but hey - this is France, you are on holiday - who cares!!! The breakfast was really nice, usual buffet sort of french breakfast but, again, the staff were superb and the service was great, although we did find it odd that the milk and tea was on the other side of the room from the coffee and sugar but - so what!! The only downfall really was that there was not really any lounge area, there was a bar with a few tables and (uncomfortable) chairs (apart from four red ones!!!) and you could sit outside if it wasnt raining, but apart from that there were no communal areas (apart from the pool which we didnt use). There was a pool table there but sometimes it was used as a coffee and snacks table for seminars, so you couldnt use it. We actually went to the Hotel Diana on the sea front in the evenings which had a lovely lounge area overlooking the sea and, again, the staff there were superb. All in all, the Celtique was ok, we wouldnt stay there again because Carnac itself has become so commercialised and touristy and has definitely lost its charm. The beach is beautiful but there is hardly anything open and the main drag reminded me of Kavos -- a shanty town!!!! However, I can find no fault with the Celtique Hotel it was really nice.
Very welcoming reception staff and dining staff But .... the bar does not serve wine!!! In the restaurant, my main course and dessert were both served while my husband was eating his starter !!! Therefore, my main was cold when I ate it, and the mousse type dessert had turned to liquid. The table cloths are plastic but for the prices charged they should at the very least be crisp white linen. Fingers crossed for a better experience at breakfast which costs €16 per person.
We stayed 3 nights in room 113. First night there was no hot water and they had no idea why. So no shower. Second and third nights, the chamber-maid simply pulled back the top sheets on the pillows and that was it. The cleaning was almost inexistant. A competent receptionist came to do our beds upon our call on the third night. The hotel mentions a billiard table (a pool) but they used it as a side table to display coffee break for management seminar. They put it back as a billiard table the first two nights but on the third night given all the cups and saucers , etc displayed. we just gave up and didn't bother to ask. So remember to ask if they are going to host a seminar group before you book. They won't provide you with towels at the swimming pool (""because the guests use more than one and it gets very expensive""). The young deputy head listened to us with a charming smile and assured us that things will be OK on our next stay. But we won't come back. We would have appreciated a small goodwill gesture. The staff is friendly.
