Reviewed July 1, 2013

My mother (80+) spent a week in the Armoric and was looked after extremely well by Irene and Michel. Traditional hosting complemented with a lovely room overlooking the gardens (A Superior Room) made a very well traveled woman feel safe, comfortable and looking forward to her next trip in 2014. She had stayed in another hotel which was well run but not by the owners - owners make such a difference.
As an ex-hotelier myself I was very aware of their challenges but they deliver very well. Good buffet breakfast and we dined en-famille on one evening.
The hotel is not beachfront and beside a busy road so I would recommend a garden room or one of their lovely annex/chalet style bedrooms which open onto the gardens.

Room Tip: Garden facing or chalet.garden rooms

I have never met such brilliant people as those who run this hotel. They helped us out of a situation even though we weren't guests, and did so with pleasure. The manager is a gentleman. I hope he sees this so that I can say merci.

The hosts of this hotel, Irene and Michel, were charming, informative and very friendly, Hotel is in the small resort town of Benodet. Our room was of generous size with modest furnishings. The bathroom was recently renovated. Parking in the rear. The is a pool but it was closed, since we were there in April. The dinner was much above average and better than we expected. I would suggest staying here rather in the nearby less attractive and larger city of Quimper. The town has a lovely paved path adjacent to the beach and inlet.

We stayed 2 nights inJuly 2012 and had a very comfortable and spacious room in the annexe. We had very mixed weather throughout our 3 week touring holiday but we were lucky to have one glorious day in Benodet and we enjoyed sunbathing/swimming in the lovely hotel pool. We did not eat in the hotel as we wanted to eat by the quayside, but the menu looked good. The location of the hotels excellent - ery easy to find, good parking and a short, pleasant stroll to the quayside and beach. If we are prepared to risk the weather in N France again, we would definitely stay at the Armoric again.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from Friday 26th October to Monday 29th October as part of a Brittany Ferries offer (3 nights for the price of 2). This hotel is run by a husband and wife team and they were both lovely hosts, very informative and chatty but not too intrusive, just the right mix to feel comfortable. We stayed in room 36 which is on the third floor (top) and it had two twin beds pushed together, an en-suite shower room and the room was large to also have a two seater sofa in it. There was also a flat screen TV with one English channel (BBC World News) and there was a mini bar as well. The bathroom had a hair dryer. The room itself was not the most modern but it was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We had been in to Benodet for a drink at La Sans Souci which we remembered from a few years previously and had looked at their menu and it was that varied and it was also quite expensive so we decided to give the restaurant in the hotel a go and I'm glad we did. The food is wonderful and is very competitively priced. I had Monkfish and Scallop kebabs and my husband had steak in red wine sauce. We had a few drinks in the hotel bar before we ate. The bar is not huge but it has every drink you could want and it is manned by Michel the owner. Michel's wife (Irene) looks after the food in the restaurant. Together they are a brilliant team and nothing is too much trouble. The food was so good that we decided to eat in the hotel again for the second evening. The breakfast which is organised by Irene is plentiful and full of choice. There was fresh fruit salad, cerials, croisants with preserves, sort/hard boiled eggs, toast, cheese and hams and it was more than sufficient to set you up for the day.

I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. In fact, we are thinking of booking again for early next year. Thank you Michel and Irene for a lovely break away.

Had a tremendous welcome by the proprietors and they made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were excellent and the evening meals were a gourmet delight. A must try is the home made fish soup.......the tomato aioli as an accompaniment was a delight. The hotel is very well situated ( a ten minute walk to the port and beaches). A must do is the walk along the Odet river and along the sea front (about 2 hours). The only thing that could have made the hotel better was to have a kettle in the room to make your own tea and coffee, however the proprietors would always oblige and open the kitchens and make you a tea or coffee if you asked. We went in the last week of October and the hotel was always warm and welcoming from the cold outside. We would definitely return.

Arrived here last Saturday. Michel (the owner) was most welcoming and explained everything about meal times, where to eat in the town etc. There were 6 of us in our party and we all had good rooms, with more than enough space and good sized bathrooms.
In the evening we stayed in for dinner and met Irene (Michel's wife) and she explained everything that was on the menu in detail. The tables were beautifully presented with fresh flowers in the center, perfect napery. The food was excellent too and very reasonable for what we had.
Good night's sleep had by all and then breakfast... very good selection of patisserie, eggs to boil yourself, toast to do yourself, juices, cheese and ham. Lovely coffee ready and waiting too.
They shut the restaurant on Sundays, so we found a place on the seafront for Moules et Frites. Monday night we ate in too and were not disappointed. Although the dining room was much busier with business men dining, we still had excellent service.
The bar is comfy and welcoming and they will make you afternoon tea to take up to your room if you wish. We would all definitely go back there if we are ever in Benodet again!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the roadside, but with the double glazing hardly heard anything. We also got the m...
