Kath and I stayed at this small, but very comfortable, hotel for five nights during a recent motorcycle tour of the 'must-see' sites of southern Brittany. Our ideal French hotel is family-run, welcoming, clean, motorcycle-friendly and within walkihg distance of an attractive village/town centre and restaurants. Other reviews pointed to Le Branhoc meeting these requirements - and we were not disappointed. Thierry and Catherine were the perfect hosts, encouraging and complementing us on our attempts at parlezing the Francaise. Although relatively modern, the hotel has a definite French feel and style. It is also very quiet, which is maybe a bit of a surprise considering the hotel's proximity to the road.
We had a room at the back of the hotel, overlooking the sheltered, sloping garden - which is Thierry's pride and joy, and still a 'work-in-progress'.
The breakfast room has a nautical theme, with breakfast itself being the usual high standard expected of a good quality 'budget' French hotel.
Of interest to touring motorcyclists will be the availability of free, secure, on-site parking - which also gave us the opportunity to meet the lovely Marguerite - Thierry and Catherine's friendly pet pig!
In conclusion, the French 'star' rating system may only awrd Le Branhoc a 'two-star' rating, but we definitely enjoyed a 'five-star' welcome and stay - we'll be back!
