A very special experience with helpful and professional staff,managed by the splendid Laurence,who tolerated my iffy French..We stayed for a few days and took advantage of the splendid restaurant on most evenings.Delicious food with sensible portions. 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.

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
