Finished our tour of Brittany at this charming B&B with lovely views out across the canal and the woods beyond. Rhiannon was extremely helpful and a great hostess, loved all the little touches in the bathroom and it was so nice to have TWO easy chairs ( so many places only give you one) as well as a small table...

Stayed for 4 nights in this lovely Bed & breakfast. Rhiannon is a gem, nothing was too much trouble. Spotlessly clean, lovely big bedroom. Delicious evening meal is available on certain nights and was a good way to meet your fellow guests. The only criticism we would point out to the owners is the chandelier in Ille et Vilaine room...

We were a group of 4 cyclists wanting some home comforts after a ride down from Roscoff and we couldn't have chosen better. Rhiannon was delightful, welcoming and obliging with storing our bikes. The rooms are wonderful, with the most comfortable beds, equipped with good toiletries, tea, coffee & free wine, beer etc. There was lots of space and the... More

Stayed in this characterful B&B for 5 nights. What a find! Beautifully renovated still keeping its character. Huge bedrooms with comfy beds including all the little touches from the toiletries to tea & coffee plus a bonus of complimentary drinks. We were superbly looked after by Rhiannon. Nothing was too much for her. She provided us with a great breakfast,... More

Bookended our family holiday with a couple of nights in the Old Salt House - our cousin runs the patisserie next door - and what a pleasure it was. The rooms are tastefully decorated and sympathetic to the age of the house, with lots of space to move around (even with a z-bed for our little boy). A nice touch... More

Our party of six could not believe our luck at finding such a place as this! We enjoyed every minute of our four night stay - Rhiannon is certainly a one off - the perfect hostess! The character of the building, its ambience, comfort and facilities and exceptionally clean, all you could wish for on a holiday. Situated by the... More

Stayed at Old Salt House for four nights. Bit concerned as only found accommodation on trip advisor, however need not have worried as lived up to and beyond the recommendation. Room was on top floor overlooking the river, with the biggest bed ever. Rhiannon is a one off! Terrific. However would suggest if arriving on a Monday request an evening... More

The Old Salt House is just off the E60/N165 trunk route between Brest and Nantes. The old Brest Nantes canal is just across the road from the Chambre D'Hote which is run by Rhiannon (a Brit) on behalf the the English owners who run another place not far away. Its about an hours drive to the Roscoff Ferry Port and... More
