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

We stayed here for 6 nights on a golf break and its an excellent base for both golf and exploring this part of Southern Brittany. Our room was large and well equipped, with a nice view down to the bay. The weather was good during our stay but sea-fog did hang around some mornings and in the evenings it could... More

Our three-night stay at the Tumulus was a nice, well-above-average hotel stay in an area we'd long planned to visit. The Hotel Tumulus, though, was not quite the highlight of our trip that I'd thought it might be. It's a very good hotel, but in a few ways could be better. The main building is a fine old 1920s stone... More

Very nice three star hotel in Carnac, up on the hill nearby the .. Tumulus. The rooms are nice and clean, albeit a bit pricey. But then everything is expensive in this area. Very good breakfast (we did not have dinner there). The service is very friendly and helpful to find locations or book nice restaurants. We stayed in the... More

Stayed here two nights in late July. Hotel staff was universally friendly, kind and helpful. Our room was fine--not big, but not small, with a spacious bathroom with walk-in shower. The bed was firm; the bedding perfectly fine. Breakfast was excellent in the beautiful dining room-- a buffet with great, fresh bread, good cheese, cereals. fruits and pastries.

As it turned out, we were upgraded to this hotel by the hotel originally booked. For our group of four American ladies, it was a special treat. Rated a Relais de Silence, it was incredibly nice and very quiet, off season, without the spa crowd. i was more than pleased when I opened my window directly onto the Tumulus St.... More

Difficult to reconcile other reviews with our experience. Room was small but OK. Dinner service, with only half a dozen tables occupied and three waiting staff, was unbelievably slow (two and a half hours for four courses). First course was good, the second was utterly bizarre - a "what have we got left in the fridge?" amalgum of ill suited... More

Le Tumulus is in a lovely location - at the foot of a 7000 year old megalithic monument - and everything in the hotel is functioning and lovely. But we found the hotel often to be a bit "too French". For example, we arrived on Sunday at 8.20pm and we had to phone a special phone number, so someone could... More

Nice hotel with a beautiful garden and swimming pool. The rooms and bathrooms are at the 4 stars level. The staff is helpfull, but a bit "cold". All over a good place to stay in Carnac.
