Very good seafood and good service in the restaurant. Hotel facing a beautiful beach in Audierne's bay. Just a small issue: the rooms are not very soundproof. Very well positioned to do jogging on the beach.

Five years ago, we had one of our best ever holidays staying at the Hotel au Roi Gradlon. We had enjoyed blue skies and sunshine for a whole fortnight, so we were slightly anxious that a return visit might be a disappointment. We need not have worried. This June we spent two marvellous weeks in this hotel, with perfect weather... More

Thank you for this comprehensive reporting following your stay. As you stated, Au Roi Gradlon has been run by the same family for the last 50 odd years, and even more if we take into account the restaurant-only era. It makes a huge difference. We can build on the foundation laid by our elders and look far ahead when planning... More

We have been coming to Audierne for 8 years now staying almost opposite the Roi Gradlon which always looks rather grand. We hadn't eaten there until now as the previous picture menus did not look inviting and dishes were rather pricey for lunch. However the formule du midi tempted us in today and we had a very pleasant experience -... More

I stayed here before a few years ago and really liked it. This time it was a chilly grey wet Friday night in April. The heating didnt work in the room despite asking for it to be turned on at reception. it was so chilly in the room I couldnt face having a shower in the morning. In retrospect I... More

This is a first class hotel,ideally situated to the town of Audierne. The restaurant overlooks a fabulous beach with marvelous sea views. All the staff are most friendly and welcoming, serving great food to suit all tastes including the most wonderful seafood.

This is a fantastic hotel, especially if you get a room with a balcony. The view of the beach is stunning, and we spent a very lazy day during our cycling holiday just chilling out on the beach and swimming and admiring the view. The food was nice, especially the moules frites, and the staff were very friendly.

This was a week day lunch. There are two dining rooms, both with magnificent panoramic views. One was serving a three course menu de jour at 11.50 and 15.50 euro. This menu hadn't attracted many diners which surprised me. The other room was offering 25 & 37 plus the carte. The line of demarcation was not clear as there was... More

Thank you for your comments following your visit to our restaurant. One of my main managerial concern, is to make it as wysiwyg as possible and that starts with displaying various information outside the building, amongst which, our restaurant offering in both French and English. I personally would not venture into a restaurant without making sure that I somehow connect... More

If you want a beach hotel then this is the one for you! Views are lovely and the beach is fantastic and just a few steps from the hotel. The hotel welcomes dogs and our dog loved the beach where they are allowed out of season. The hotel is 2** with simple furnished rooms but with good quality beds and... More

Thank you so much for your positive comments. Our venue is often praised for its location and seaview, and we have to admit that indeed, there is something to it !

I am just back from a short trip to Brittany. I have travelled extensively in this area over five years, and by far my favourite hotel in the region is the Au Roi Gradlon in Audierne, which keeps me returning year after year.

We were directed to this hotel by the local tourist information office on a very wet afternoon last May and were so pleasantly surprised by what we found.
