We spent 3 nights at Ty Mad. It's a lovely small hotel, with a fun modern decor. Our room was not huge but very pleasant and with a nice view over the water. The tiny Plage St Jean is a wonderful place for a swim - seems like your own private beach. We ate two dinners in the restaurant and... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Ty Mad and found it overall disappointing. Whilst the location is wonderful and the views over the bay quite lovely our room was tiny and our shower room so small it was just the floor space of the toilet and a very small shower. Whilst the room is full descriptions of their ecological philosophy... More

Ty Mad is a beautiful, peaceful and happy small hotel within steps of the sea and ten minutes from the harbour and cafes of Treboul. Its owners have lavished care and attention on the decor, and devote the same attention to the guests, who are very much made to feel like guests rather than clients. The breakfasts are lavish, and... More

The first visit gave a good impression, causing that we wanted to spend our last evening in Douarnenez in the restaurant, taking their high recommended "cote de boeuf" as our main course. We were for several days looking forward to this outstanding dinner. The beef was servered, whithout asking us how it should be cooked, causing it was servered very... More

Dear Sir, We decided to keep the restaurant open that night because you had a booking. The chef lost his father in the afternoon and therefore we probably failed that day. Your account has been credited today. With all our appologies and best regards. A Raillard More

The current owners have transformed an old stately house (used to be a presbytery) into a wonderful contemporary and exceptionally tasteful design hotel. The location is also very special in front of an old chapel with a splendid sea view. The view from our room (11) was simply magical. The only drawbacks are related to the fact that this hotel...

Hotel Ty Mad is a very special place. From the moment we arrived we felt that we were so important to the owners - they have that incredible ability to make you feel at home, incredible service but without you even knowing they are there ....truly special. Our bedroom was stunning, room 20 on the top floor, an amazing suite... More

Our stay at the end of our holiday was fantastic. Service was impeccable and breakfast one of the best we had had in France. Great atmosphere and wonderfully done out. Location is great for families only 50yds from great sheltered cove! The hotel owners could not have been more helpful. Will be trying out restaurant tonight!

We arrived at Ty Mad having spent the previous two days motorcycling from the UK in the rain. We were welcomed with minimal fuss and given the key and directions to our room, the door code and our booking for supper confirmed. Our room was lovely - just as promised with a dual aspect view over the sea and the... More

...to go to a place which exudes such enthusiasm. What warmth and charm extended by Arnaud, Armelle and their charming daughter. We loved the quirkiness, the attention to detail, the playlist, and the utterly wonderful food. The rain was pissing down when we arrived, so we ate in, and the restaurant was so good, we ate there until we left.... More

The owners of Ty Mad have charm which spills over to their enthusiasm to share their part of Brittany with their guests. Telling where to go, what to avoid, we ended up seeing some rather special places in the villages, on the coastline and inland. The hotel has a few small rooms, some with sea views and larger. The setting... More
