A lovely quaint hotel in a beautiful setting. The staff are very welcoming & we have a large clean room, with great view. The room has tea & coffee making facilities, a hairdryer & free wi-fi that actually works! The village just lacks a really decent restaurant, right on the doorstep, although there appear to be a few good restaurants... More

This was our 5th trip to the Old Salt House. The reception is warm and friendly, the house is beautiful, sympathetically restored and furnished, and the location is picturesque. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts are ample! Have recommended to all our friends and home to return in the autumn

We arrived soaking wet from cycling were met by Peter who was excellent, the room was excellent and location great. We also were provided with a great breakfast I have stayed in many hotels / B&Bs and this rates as one of the best ever. I would certainly return here.

We came rowing on the river. The return to the Old Salt House was our moment of pleasure. This house has been well renovated. There were lovely touches in the rooms: bathrobe, slipper teas. Everything was very clean. Our host was really lovely and the breakfasts were great.

Made a reservation months before my travels. Paid through PayPal. Used their booking site. (Not Booking.Com) Their confirmation to me stated only a no show or a reduction would merit a no refund. A deposit of 20 euro per room would be charged. So when I wish to cancel and asked about the conditions the gentleman on the phone played... More

Our two-night stay at the Old Salt House was a special treat. The blend of the old structure on the water with the new interior decorating was exquisite. Breakfast was delicious with fresh eggs and pastries. Port-Launay is a beautiful little spot and we a fun dinner in nearby Chateaulin. Our days trips included Locronan and Quimper.

When visiting friends in Brittany recently. We chose to stay at the Old Salt House and were captivated by this charming and quirky conversion. Our welcome was very warm, our room, overlooking the river, was large and beautifully appointed and the breakfast more than sufficient. There was ever a small fridge on the landing with complimentary drinks. Peter our host... More

The perfect place for a short break. Port Launay is an attractive place and the Old Salt House is right by the canal so has good views. Peter was very welcoming and helpful. The room we stayed in was a good size and had all you might need for a comfortable stay - a king size bed, a settee and... More
