This is a very good hotel but to enjoy it to the full you need not to have to worry about money or to have enough it not to gulp at cider for 29 Euros a 75cl bottle or 50 minutes in the hamman at 60 Euros per person. But even by not enjoying the sauna or massages or apple-based alcoholic drinks the hotel is well worth visiting and enjoying. The staff are studiously polite, attentive, helpful and courteous and hotel enjoys wonderful views of Roscoff’s harbour and the sea beyond. The entrance/reception is magnificent and whether you approach it from the car park (at floor one) or from the road (ground floor) you cannot fail to be impressed by the grandeur and style. Viewed from the road it is an attractive building which looks old and traditional. Old it may be but the image presented belies the rather boutique like fee of some of the rooms. We had one on the ground floor close to the swimming pool: good sized bed (comfortable too); decent bathroom, well appointed with ample up-market toiletries and a powerful shower; TV, good-sized wardrobe, sofa and desk and kettle and cups and drinks and a small ‘fridge (but nothing in it leaving you the ability to fill it yourself). No real view but the room (which was a reversed J-shape) has access to a spacious terrace which is shared by other rooms on the same level and overlooked by an apartment block. So, the room was comfortable and had a different feel to it because of the lack of a window with a view. Decent sized bar/lounge and excellent restaurant (le Yachtman) which also serves as the breakfast room. The swimming pool (about 10m x 6m with variable depth from 1.1m to just over 2m) is heated and is nicely situated in the spa complex. We had it virtually to ourselves in early April and in high season it could get busy. Not overly-equipped with loungers (about 10 I think) which would rapidly get used when busy. Good showers by the pool. The hamman was sized for 2 or three at best. Everything clean and well-maintained. Breakfast offered plenty of choice (fresh orange juice was most welcome) and there no stinting on what you could help yourself to (an impressive array of preserves and confitures). Dinner (menu starting at 46 Euros) was worth every cent. Apart from all of that what is so good about this hotel is the staffs’ attitude: helpful and attentive and with all those little touches that make you feel special like opening doors for you, seating you properly and all those other small gestures that are increasingly rare these days. It was churlish of me to make a snide dig at some of the prices. Yes, it’s not cheap but the standard is impressively high. Well worth visiting and if we’re back in Roscoff we’d stay again.
