This is a very nice hotel, set in very picturesque countryside. The owner is incredibly helpful and pleasant, and didn't seem at all put out when we rang to say we'd managed to cycle off with the key to her bicycle store, and said it wasn't a problem to return it on our way back two days later. The restaurant... More

This is a cozy hotel, the onwers and great people, they take care of every little detail of this hotel that is close to many of the Carnac sites and just besides one of the best restaurants in the region. Worth staying, fair price an in the summer the swimming pool is extremly welcome.

Found this at the last minute when approaching Carnac.Good room with terrace and a very pleasant owner who tolerated my poor French with good humor made our two night stay a good experience. Take a picnic to the Stones at Carnac and visit the beaches and Prehistory Museum.A worthwhile travel experience.Restaurant Hippocampe is excellent also.

our family stayed in a quad room for three nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel owner is truly unforgettable; gracious, helpful, welcoming and happy doesn't quite describe her. I think she is THE happiest person I have ever met. Hotel is clean, room was comfortable with a loft sleeping area (full height) for the kids and a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May (low season) to explore Carnac, Quiberon, the Bay of Morbihan, etc. The place seems to be in the middle of nowhere but is actually very central and convenient. The owner is very friendly and welcomed us warmly, she had many suggestions of places to visit and things to do. The room we... More

The Hotel Hippocampe is located about half-way between Carnac and Plouharnel, off the main road connecting the two towns. The turn for the hotel is clearly marked, so it is easy to find. There is plenty of free parking out front. The situation of the hotel is not particularly beautiful, but the owners have done a great job landscaping, and... More

We stayed here in August with our baby. The lady manger (owener) went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and happy. For the duration of our stay she lent us her kettle and each morning she would come over and play with our baby so we could enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee over breakfast. The hotel... More

The owners were lovely and friendly and the room was spacious and clean. The pool was wonderful and really well looked after gardens. Only drawbacks were : No fridge in room and location a way from shops meant it was difficult to have a cold drink without spending a fortune. Also breakfast at 10 Euro per person was an expensive...

The owners of this hotel could not do enough for us, we spent a month in Europe, and this was the best hotel experience we had - the first time i have posted on trip advisor, we were so impressed that we would love to see this hotel do well. The room we had was great for a family and... More

Our room at L'Hippocampe was fresh and clean. The floor space seemed a bit small, possibly because the ceiling was slanting. The bathroom included a large shower with shower curtain. The location was not scenic, but it was only about one mile from the menhirs of Carnac and the new visitor center at the Menec menhirs. At 50 euros, it... More
