An oasis of calm. What more could you want. An excellent B&B with comfortable bed, delicious breakfast and a location unbelievably quiet. A view of the river and sailing boats from the bedroom window. We strolled into Chateaulin for dinner each evening and sampled various restaurants. Would particularly recommend Les Cocottes. Lots of places to visit from Port launay. Roads... More

We stayed at Old Salt House a couple of night. The B&B is in a 18th century building that has been restored in an superb way by actual owners. The location is beautiful. The view on the river from the room is lovely. The hosts were very kind and it was a pleasure to stay here.

You would perhaps not immediately tell from the outside, but this place is fabulous! The house has been built some 300 years ago, giving it a special atmosphere, but all modern comfort is present. We stayed there with our 17 years old daughter, she had a separate bedroom connected to ours by a communicating door and we had a bathroom... More

We stayed here with our young daughter and teenage son for a treat at the end of a holiday in France. We were hoping for a comfortable nights sleep, what we received was so much more. Beautiful surroundings, ideal location for cheese, bread and wine on the riverside. Beautifully restored building with gorgeous orginal features. The decor is superb and... More

We spent two nights at the Old Salt House and were very happy with everything. The room was comfortable, the shower was great, the hosts were very accommodating. We also appreciated that there were wine glasses and a corkscrew in our room. The breakfast was ample and tasty. The location was great- a lovely view out the window and a... More

Good B&B for a stop over or a couple of days, lovely view from bedrooms on edge of canal with rooms well presented and free wine. Nearest restaurants in Chateaulin pity they are not that good. Made very welcome but could do with some one there from lunch time at least.

Hello, thank you for the review. When guests leave it takes a few hours to turn the rooms around ready for the next guests, and on the our information it does say guests can check in after 16.00 h, as we do have to leave the property to collect shopping ect. On you on line reservation you said that you... More

Lovely building and very comfortable room - very tastefully furnished. Warm welcome from Claire and Peter and delicious breakfasts: it always helps if the property is next door to a boulangerie! The location is superb and, although there are no restaurants in Port Launay itself, you can drive or walk 2 kilometres to Chateaulin or, as we did, drive for... More

A superb Bed & Breakfast in a lovely location. Spacious room, with excellent facilities. Very comfortable, full of character and stylish. Overlooking the canal. The hosts were very friendly, serving an excellent breakfast.

Our room was very spacious and tastefully furnished, lovely big bed. Clare and Peter were very helpful and the bonus was being able to watch the Wimbledon final on the downstairs TV. We were in the room on the right at the top of the stairs. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work there and the shower was quite small. Top breakfast... More

We booked in for two nights after reading the reviews here, we were relieved to find the comfort and character of the hotel as described. The attention to detail in the rooms was mostly good. The Super King size bed was wonderfully restful and enormous! The bedroom and bathroom with quality furnishings, towels and super soft white robes was welcoming.... More

Thank you for your comments which i do personally have been unjustified for such a odd score but praised review? Secondly i am unsure why you think we do evening meals as you stayed at our property which is a "Bed & Breakfast" and that is what you got so if you wanted meals then you need to be at... More
