On our recent cycle tour of Brittany we stayed in varying types of places from motels to 4 star. We all (two daughters and parents) agreed that The Old Salt House was the most welcoming and charming place in a stunning setting beside the Brest to Nantes canal.

A warm welcome from Miles and nothing would seem to be too much trouble. The Old Salt House is spotlessly clean, stylishly decorated and the extra touches make it quite special...a tray with kettle, tea and coffee (not usually provided in French B&B's), Molton Brown toiletries and a fridge on the landing with complimentary wine and beer. Our bed was... More

The bedroom is large, beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast is excellent (so is the café). Mile is cool. Everything is fine. We spent 21 nights in Bretagne (hotel or B&B), and Chateaulin was the best stay we had.

Wonderful location, wonderful decoration, wonderful service ! The house is authentic and has lots of charm. Port-Launay is a charming little vilalge a $nd so is next-door Chateaulin. What more could you want? Que demande le peuple?

We stayed on the top floor in the Gwenn ha Du room. This has a very comfortable bed and small window but with a nice view of the canal. The bathroom is fine. The complementary water, beer and wine is a nice touch. Breakfast is a simple continental affair but lots of it and a good variety - it is... More

Wonderful facilities and comfortable room, very attentive hosts, great area for exploring and the best croissants are made right next door to ensure breakfasts are something special. A break to be remembered.

Some people love creaky floors and a communal breakfast table - but not all of us. Other reviewers say very nice things about this small hotel and I'm sure they're all true. Speaking for our room (lst floor above the lounge) the mattress sagged, there were no slippers or robe (although I would not have expected them) and there was... More

The location of The Salt House is beautiful. Waking up in the morning to a view of the Canal was great. We had a lovely large room, with all the additions of dressing gowns and slippers, plus toiletries and coffee/tea making facilities. Above all though, was the very friendly and helpful staff - they could not do enough for you... More

a lovely bedroom in a quiet charmant hotel. The rooms were comfortable. We had a relaxing night after a long trip from PARIS. What better than waking up in front of a canal. The breakfast was excellent. Thank you for the hospitality
