Booked in September 2014 via Booking.com and got a good deal on a 4 night stay (120 Euro per night Room Only). We were Upgraded on arrival as our request for a bath had been overlooked - to a Junior Suite (Room 36) which was a great improvement on the standard room (Room 1) we were first shown.

The Tumulus hotel is unique. Really. You will never stay in a property built next to the largest bronze age funeral mound in the world. If you believe that the spirits from eons ago are still alive, simply move on..... Seriously, the hotel has a lot going for it. The owners have been doing their best here for several generation....

Charming hotel in a lovely setting. Rooms are pleasant and we appreciated the small treats that were in upon our arrival! But we really came to dine in the restaurant and we were pleased by the quality and presentation of our dinners. We were able to experience two menus, the menu of the season and the gourmand menu. Both were... More

Hotel is in a unique setting, pleasant and well maintained. The staff is helpful. The dining room offered varied menu choices , and was very accommodating. We had a very good meal - we had one gourmand menu and one menu of the season. Both were excellent. Our only disappointment was that we did not know that the lobster menu... More

We found ourselves looking for hotels around Carnac after our campervan broke down during a week away in early July. The Hotel Tumulus was one of the few places with rooms free but what a delightful find! We had inadvertently managed to book during the last week of low season so we had a gorgeous double room for half the... More

The intent was to use this hotel as a place to see Carnac (petroglyphs a must see) but it can be so much more. 1.Full spa and massage facilities looked great. The hotel is on a quiet hillside to boost the tranquility quotient. 2. Service was lovely from the reception to the restaurant and bar. 3. Restaurant is more of... More

On a hill a bit out of town adjacent a funeral hill! Sounds a bit left of centre, but it is a lovely place. Probably just beyond reasonable walking distance, but ok to cycle with parking on site, spa, pool, great restaurant and lovely rooms.

If you are visiting Carnac - the Tumulus hotel is the best place to stay - very charming hotel from 1920 - the breakfast room has a wonderful view and has a very authentic feel. Breakfast is very good - a lot of different choices - really worth the price! Nice swimming pool and we also tried the restaurant at... More

Stayed 3 nights Aug 2013 as a family of 4, in a Junior Suite. Lovely location at the highest point in the area overlooking the coast, but close to the centre of Carnac for restaurants. Very friendly staff, nice pool and good, if slightly expensive, restaurant. The suite was clean, recently updated and a good size with a spacious terrace... More
