This is a tricky one to review as it has all the potential of being a really good hotel in a lovely little town. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we were tired after a longish journey - we had called on the way and were undecided about taking a family suite (which we had to commit to for 3 days) or a family room/two rooms. The receptionist said we could make our mind up when we arrived but when we got there the last family suite had just gone. We considered one of the self catering houses they also have on site which was perfectly acceptable but a little dark inside and finally agreed on two double rooms next to each other in a sort of annexe. The receptionist agreed we could have these at a reduced rate because the suite had gone. Both had small balconies and were modern, very clean and comfortable though a bit 'boxy'. In retrospect we were glad not to have committed to three days there as really one/two days in Pont Aven is enough just to get a taster of the town (although there is plenty to do - boat trips, kayaking, walking etc) and we wanted to head further to the coast. As my husband said - the hotel just needs to settle in a bit. It looks new and a little bit corporate and I think the bar/lounge areas could do with getting rid of the bright pink chairs and sofas and get more of a relaxed country house feel. We did use the pool which was fine but didn't eat in the restaurant which did look a nice space to eat in. There are quite a few steps to the town but they are spaced out a bit and should only really be a problem for the elderly or infirm. Pont Aven is very pretty and worth a stay over but much preferred the art galleries and art in Auray! The hotel staff are great and this hotel is a very good option (probably the best) for staying in Pont Aven.
