Had a very enjoyable three nights. All very clean and tidy. Views great as you are at the highest point in Carnac. Half hour walk to beaches so we drove. There are lots of interesting bays and beaches it explore. Carnac centre is very pretty and only a very short walk away. The Carnac market in very well worth a... More

We spent 2 nights here and it was delightful. The staff can't do enough to help and the hotel is so pretty. It is just off the town so one can walk in and enjoy the lovely shops and a few bars- where the locals talk to you! - a short drive away are the carnac beaches but they seem... More

Very nice setting, convenient to Carnac centre. Quality of food good if slightly small portions. For main courses no choice within each menu. Room rather small and very poor standard, badly in need of refurbishment. Certainly not the "superior room" we booked.

Hotel Tumulus is located above Carnac giving a decent panoramic view from the pool, restaurant and some of the rooms. It is not on the beach side of Carnac and is a short drive or bike ride to the beaches- which means it is a bit more peaceful and relaxed than being right by the beach in high season. The... More

Plenty to do and see in the area,and the beach not too far a pleasant evening walk. If you like standard Hôtel fare and... More

The sort of hotel where a holiday ends too soon. The staff are friendly, we had an excellent 'chambre prestige' room with good facilities and privacy, and it is an excellent base from which to visit the South Brittany beaches. We are very likely to return.

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....
