My husband and I are experienced travelers and feel like we stumbled on a real bargain with this quirky café/bed and breakfast (65 euros for a double room with breakfast served on a sunny terrace!). Though we were initially prepared for a vacation in the "middle of nowhere", we got a pleasant surprise when our host arranged for transportation from... More

Family were staying in a gite in la gorvello so we booked into the cafe for 1 night to visit them on our way home.What a great find! The bedroom was very big with a large comfortable bed &good size bathroom. Breakfast was very good. If you want a place to stay not far from Vannes, then this is it.... More

We were warmly welcomed by Don & Ellen and shown up to a bedroom which ticked all the boxes. Ellen put together a tremendous light meal, after which we were able to walk around the village following the printed guide, with English notations provided by Don. A great first/last stop from the ferries or as a relaxing base from which... More

Ellen and Don are gracious hosts and our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Le Gorvello is a quaint town and close to the coastal towns of Brittany and Vannes, which are fun to explore. The Cafe is off the beaten tourist path and offers an opportunity to get a glimpse of small town french culture. I was able to... More

Thank you again Don and Ellen. As ever, the welcome was warm, service excellent and the room just perfect. I got to my room and just knew I could relax in my home-from-home. Can't wait to be back again. Xx

Hello Peter, Glad to hear that all was to your liking in your " home away from home" Mornings just aren't the same without you at breakfast time in the café. Hope your school year starts well and we're looking forward to your next visit. Best regards, Ellen and Don More

This was the first place we stayed on our most recent trip to France. We arrived at night and were given a really warm welcome by Don and Ellen, who stayed up and prepared dinner just for us. Le Gorvello is well placed to explore the coast and inland, including Vannes. Don and Ellen are excellent advisors, having lived many... More

From the moment I arrived, I felt like a valued friend. The room was beautiful and so comfortable - an excellent sleep every night. Everything I could have needed was provided, combining modern touches with traditional comforts. The breakfasts were amazing, fresh and plentiful with as much coffee as I needed. Thank you so much, Don and Ellen. You were... More

My fiancé and I spent a lovely weekend at Gorvello Café. As we're both vegetarians, we were grateful for the extra attention Ellen paid to our culinary needs (she is a fabulous cook!). The tiny town is quaint and has romantic lighting by night, which makes it look just like the setting for a fairy tale, and we also discovered... More

This was the 4th B&B on our holiday in Bretagne and it nicely rounded up our 2 week trip, being all that we have come to expect of the best rated B&Bs: extraordinary hosts, great atmosphere, more than enough comfort, clean and well cared for, all of this at a price that can't be touched by a hotel I wasn't...

This should have been a wonderful experience judging by previous reviews. The little village it is situated in is lovely and from the outside it looked very promising, but inside was a different story. For what it offered it was overpriced. The bed linen was very tired and the beds not as comfortable as other B&Bs offered. The breakfast was... More
