Mercure Vannes Le Port

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

WiFi very poor have stayed in two different rooms on different floors it made no difference, could do no work. Also hair dryer did not work in a room, when reported at desk there was no offer to supply one, only we will get a service person to look at it.

The room was very spacious, comfortable, & clean. Nice view, but the hotel lacked charm. Near the Casino & other things near the port, so it was quite noisy during the night, making it problematic to sleep with the window open. We went down to the bar for a drink & a snack, but they refused to serve any food at the tables in the bar, and the restaurant was way too noisy. They need to do some serious acoustical work to make it more supportable, or allow hotel guests to have some sea-food or lite snack in the lounge.

Nice hotel for a shortish break in this nice Breton town. Easy to find, very clean and tidy in all guest-accessible areas. Fair size rooms, well finished and furnished with good sized and very comfortable. bed. Smallish but well designed and fitted out en-suite shower room and separate wc. For a hotel right on a busy road, the soun-proofing is remarkably effective. Staff very friendly and efficient. Room cleaning each morning very efficient, and all left spotless, fresh and tidy. Light and pleasant breakfast room provides excellent choice of fresh produce in a very clean and well maintained operation. On one very wet evening we elected to eat in and try the dinner in the hotel. Limited choice, but not unreasonable for the likely number of diners. All three courses absolutely fine for both of us, and thoroughly enjoyed. Limited space in underground car park, with tight parking bays. A bit worrying, but actually worked out fine.

The Mecure Vannes Le Port was in an excellent location. There was a bus stop just across the road for busses into the town and the boats for trips to other islands was a very short walk away. We would stay here again when in the area

A good location giving easy access to the town a short walk [15 min] along the towpath. Many bars / restaurants within the old town, in addition to an excellent market. Walking away from Vannes the hotel is near the coastal footpath which meanders through a wooded area, used by cyclists and walkers. The facilities at the hotel are good, with the restaurant offering a wide selection of good food and wine

We stayed here for one night and had a very good overall experience. The family room was very comfortable and the staff all very helpful. The breakfast is not included, but is recommended. All in all a very good hotel with ample parking.

There were things about this hotel that were excellent and others that were less so. For example, Marie, who checked us in, was friendly and helpful - above and beyond what might be expected at a hotel. There was another young lady at the reception at a different time whose attitude appeared to be that the clients ought to be grateful that she was there to serve them. (I will not mention her name here but would be happy to discuss her attitude with the hotel management if they wished.) The Maître D' had a similar attitude. My wife's goal was to get him to smile just once during our stay. She actually managed it just before we left. The hotel needs to do something about the 'Express petit déjeuner'. It is offered as a breakfast option, which we wanted to take advantage of as we never eat the full 'buffet breakfast'. When we requested the 'small breakfast option' you would have thought that we had asked for a 95% reduction in price! What we got was a 95% reduction in service. We were told to go to another room and were eventually given a juice, a hot drink and bread. This was what we wanted but we did NOT expect the food to be served in a paper bag!! The name of the hotel is a little misleading as it is a couple of kilometres from everything and we could not see anything that resembled a port while we were at the hotel. When we visit Vannes again we will probably choose a different hotel.

The hotel is relatively new and well designed. The rooms are very good even if the bathroom is smallish. It is a stones through from the creek leading up to Vannes and there are plenty of boats offering trips round the Morbihan and a ferry up to Vannes centre. Plenty of parking. The restaurant "Brasserie Edgar" was very good.

We've stayed here a few times in the past; since we last did so it has been refurbished and is now a pretty much standard Mercure. In some ways, that's no problem - you know what you're getting and the rooms (and particularly beds) are okay. In others it's sad, because this hotel used to have some individuality. It's very handy for Vannes, easy to reach by car and allowing one a pleasant walk along the river to the centre: allow 20 minutes to half an hour for this. Two negatives, though. First, they over-heat their rooms. The air-conditioning/room cooling isn't functional. Not a problem, we thought: we had a window that would open. And then the night club nearby started up. And continued, until 6.30am. Drunken youths gathered outside the hotel to play their own music, just to add to the cacophony. My wife didn't sleep at all. Of course, Mercure do have a satisfaction guaranteed policy - but who wants to be changing a room at midnight. Assuming that the staff showed any interest. Because that's the other problem. I remember when Accor recruited staff who took an interest in their guests. Not any more. The young woman on the reception desk when we checked in just processed us. The older woman on the desk when we left didn't ask about the stay. We were just consumers, passing through. This is becoming a real problem for Accor, because we've seen it elsewhere. It leaves you thinking that if you want a bog-standard package, administered by people who don't really care, Accor remains a reliable brand. But talk to them about the hot, noisy room? I had no confidence there'd be any interest on the basis of the staff we met.

Spent one night here. Rooms were clean, staff nice, it was quiet, bed comfy, and wifi worked. Location pretty good. Could walk to historic Vannes in about 20 minutes along the canal/river. In good weather, there are bikes to rent along the shore, nice place to jog too.
