What a stunning and charming hotel the Dalmore is, family owned and run with a touch of real class. The location is perfect for beach lovers and walkers alike, with access to sailing/kayaking and other water sports right across the road at the bottom of the pretty garden.
We stayed for a week and took the two suites 'Aven' and 'Belon' - both were very roomy, exceptionally clean and comfortable with a lovely terrace shared by both suites with sun loungers and tables to use. We ate breakfast in the hotel each day, which at 14 euros was good value and very generous. Dinner in the hotel was also great value and well prepared, with good wine at fair prices.
In the afternoons you could help yourself to Nespresso coffee in the lounge which was a nice touch, and Alice on reception would be there to help with any advice that was needed and make reservations/book taxis etc.
We had a great stay and would definitely like to go back.

We stayed here for two nights over a weekend in June. We had a suite with a private terrace overlooking the bay. I say private but it was shared with the suite next to us but that was not occupied during our stay. The hotel was so peaceful, the staff and owners friendly and we were very comfortable. The views from our room and the terrace were stunning. We had the dining room to ourselves on the Friday evening and it felt as if we were very spoilt. The food was excellent both in terms of quality and value. This was a luxury weekend and whilst not cheap was not ridiculously expensive. We will return to enjoy the Manoir again.

Room Tip: Sea view if you can

Manoir Dalmore occupies the most spectacular position on a wooded hill looking down on a perfect sandy beach in a beautiful little bay in southern Brittany. The local hamlet appears to be very select and the location of beachside second homes for discerning people. A few hundred yards across the water, linked by a pretty path from Port Manec'h is a small Port de Plaisance where yachts, day and fishing boats bob gently at their moorings.
We had a large and comfortable double room on the ground floor with two sets of French windows opening on to a wide wooden decking on which were our two sun loungers. This would have been the perfect spot to relax and unwind had it not been for the dreadful weather during our four night stay. From this verandah the ground sloped down through a pretty garden flanked by trees and shrubs to the beach about 100 metres away. On the right hand side of the beach was a delightful beach bar/cafe where we enjoyed a one course evening meal on no less than four occasions, looked after by a delightful girl who spoke good english and played quiet and jazzy music by The Lost Fingers.
We did not use the hotel's restaurant as we tend to have a good lunch, skip breakfast and eat frugally at night. The hotel had plenty of parking in its grounds and sported a brand new Sauna. One of the hotel's managers had a beautiful golden retriever which was friendly and gave the place a homely feel. There were many features which had clearly been installed with disabled and wheelchair-borne guests in mind.
But the hotel was very unusual in certain ways. Although in a traditional old house the interior was designed to be very modern and eco friendly. The room had masses of well planned storage space and numerous electric plug sockets. In our large bedroom there were no comfortable chairs, the only ones provided being transparent perspex dining chairs. The separate lavatory comprised a large square room painted in blocks of solid red and white with a slate floor. There was a tiny lavatory pan in the far right hand corner which would accommodate only the smallest of bottoms and it was installed so far up the wall that the feet of people less that 5ft 7ins would probably not touch the ground when seated. There was no wash basin in this large lavatory, the only other furnishings being a small wooden stand housing a lavatory roll and a brush, and a handrail quite necessary for shorter people. As a result the effect was that of an echo chamber with the smallest noise resonating to a wide area.
The bathroom was a wet room. The shower curtain was suspended by hooks which kept catching on its rail supports and only surrounded part of the washing area thus easily soaking the basin and most of the rest of the room. The shower controls were so complicated that written instructions had been provided and on a number of occasions the turn of a tap the wrong way resulted in a jet of cold water to unsuspecting parts! Most bizarre was the wash basin which was shaped like a shallow saucer and had no plug. As a result it was not possible to fill a basin of hot water in which to shave and one therefore had to have the tap running permanently otherwise every time water was required it was necessary to adjust both hot and cold to the right temperature. The mirror above this basin was only lit from the ceiling behind ones head when shaving and as a result one's face was not illuminated at all.
The hotel did have free Wifi but this was only available in close proximity to the Reception Desk on the first floor. TV was in the rooms and BBC News and CNBC were in English. The double bed was very comfortable but the duvet and pillows were stuffed with some sort of synthetic filler. As a result they became very hot at night. The only way to have fresh air in the room at night was to open the French doors on to the ground floor terrace which could be a little unnerving for some guests. There were no other windows.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. On one blustery day when it was not raining, we had the most wonderful walk along the coast path to Trevignon Point and back to have lunch at a very pleasant restaurant there called Ar Men Du, a good walk for us as we are nearer 70 than 60 but hugely worth the effort and highly recommended.
In spite of the unusual ablution arrangements, lack of comfortable seating in the bedroom and synthetic bedding, the Manoir Dalmore is in a God-given location, clean and well serviced by friendly and helpful staff and in good weather must be holiday heaven. We would certainly go there again but would take our own pillows and a large plug for the basin!

Room Tip: Insist on a room with a balcony overlooking the beach.

A beautiful building in a very beautiful location but too many minor problems to justify the very high rating. After a busy day sight seeing we returned for a quiet time before dinner and the hotel management decided that this was a good time to spring clean the terrace immediately below our window with a noisy vacuum cleaner and lots of thumps and scrapings. This was one example of the lack of experience of management and staff - amateurs basically. It was also disappointing that wifi was only available in reception and poor quality even there. Also in our junior suite with two windows overlooking the sea, because of the design of the building with high windows, the view was only available when standing up! This, in our view, is a long way short of being the third best hotel in Brittany. I short add that we are retired people. There were not many other guests during our stay but all were much younger than us. Maybe we are reflecting older peoples standards/requirements.

Room Tip: If you want a good view when sitting down, say so when booking

Rather than drive all the way back from our house near Bergerac to Calais and back to Essex, we decided to divert over to Brittany for a night and break the journey into two days. I found Manoir Dalmore on the internet and called them up to see if they would take us and our Border Collie Daisy for a night. I spoke to Celine Jamet one of the owners who tollerated my terrible French and helped me out with her excellent English, not to mention her welcoming approach and love of dogs!

As it turned out, we were the only guests in the otel that night but that didn't stop them making us feel at home, having a raging fire in the lounge just for us, having the chef called out for duty just for us and being available to help and serve us for our stay. I did meet Monseiur Jamet too but I didn't get his first name (sorry!) and also met Alice on reception and one of their two gorgeous Golden Retriever's, Glassique.

What a beautiful hotel, lovely food, fabulous breakfast and great friendly service. But what a wonderful location too; the pictures make it look lovely but in reality it is even more stunning. Pristine sandy beach in a pretty little cove holding a small village. Stunning views from the hotel out to sea and around the cove. Go there!!!

Room Tip: I think most if not all rooms are sea view but make sure you don't miss out on the glorious loca...

We stayed 2 nights in March 2013 in the room "Rosbras". The 1926 years old Manoir is located on a little hill, a stone throw from a beautiful sheltered bay.
The owners are a welcoming and charming couple. They are very helpfull and accomodating.
They managed to give a contemporary take on rooms and facilities while preserving the character of this old house. The smell of wood burning in the cheminee gives you an instant feeling of relaxation when you have your coffee in the lounge. The atmosphere is very peaceful. There is also a terrace with a wonderful view of the bay if you prefer to take your drinks outside. You can use the sauna downstairs to relax after a long walk on the cliff nearby.
Our room had a panoramic view on the bay. Bed with excellent mattress, flat screen TV. no kettle in the bedroom but Tea and coffee are served at no extra charge in the lounge during day time. the Wi-Fi is also accessible from the Lounge, unfortunately not from the bedrooms. Our bathroom was a long blue wet room with a massive shower head. The water pressure was not intense but it is part of a green economical project which the owners are trying to implement, so you easily forgive them for it.
The food was wonderful, especially if you like seafood. The French chef is very good and takes pride in using locally sourced products and the freshest ingredients. He gets his fish supply from a local fishmongers, so the composition of the "Plateau de fruits de mer" can vary. He will let you know about it in advance if you order a seafood assortment, which I really recommend you to do. Prices between € 36 - 42 per head
The food is reasonably priced, great quality and excellent presentation: we had a delicious fish soup for 11 €, and the coffee gourmand is a bargain at 9 € ! The breakfast is equally nice at 14 € per head. You can have it delivered to your room at no extra charge, which is a nice touch.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here, and would definitly go back.
We spend hours walking along the coastal path, surrounded by a very pretty stretch of coastline. Port Manech is quite secluded so I would recommend to come with a car if you want to stay for more than 2 days. There is the historical harbour town of Pont-aven to visit 10 minutes of drive away: famous for its many water mills, so beautifully captured by Gauguin in his paintings.

Hotel every bit a good as it looks in the picture. Wonderful views of the bay, peaceful and welcoming. Furnished to suit the age of the building and rooms comfortable and clean. Food is exceptional, particularly if you like seafood. Would recommend to anyone and hope to go again.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a sea view.
