I had no comments for the professionalism and helpful hotel staff. Bathroom and bedroom comfortable, clean and beautiful view. I could give 5 stars for the hotel.

The restaurant gastronomie not really my taste, but it's correct and well presented. The dessert is too sweet and the vegetables not cooked well. But fish and fois gras perfect. The head server refuse to my request to sit near the window and some forget here and there. But overall it's alright since i can understand how busy they are. And two great coktails for my birthday is really nice gifts.

I'm quite disapointed with the spa service. Since they refuse soin gommage with no explication. Waiting more than 10 minutes for her resolve problem in the phone. And pay 30 minutes feet massage tarif for only 20 minutes service. The quality of oil and massage also under average for hotel spa. And after exchange with some other clients, i'm quite surprise because they got question how you like the pressure and ect. With me no questions and really straight by telling not so much time.

However the view is wonderful, very rural if you try to seek some rural beach area. Close to menhir and sunday traditional market.

... warm reception and room 53 in the seperate building was good and clean. Did not had breakfast, so no comments on this. An early morning walk in the surroundings is really worth it! You can walk in 15 mins down town.

Calm, discrete and professional establishment. Would go back again. Beautiful location with garden and hill view which is worth the short climb. Room on ground floor which was bigger than expected which is always a pleasure. Outside bar area is also appreciated as the weather was good.

I am slow to write a bad review but!!! We booked a room with a panoramic view. We got a room overlooking the car park and a pebble covered roof. It had,however, the advantage of a permanently dripping tap! We asked for a change and we're intriguingly told it 'would improve later'. No room change no tap fix occurred. We eat in the restaurant on night one which was very good. When we booked for night two ( at same time of day)we were told it was full !!!! We were offered no alternative food either bar food or sandwich. And the wifi is beyond spotty. We give 2 stars because of the restaurant

This is a really nice hotel. Friendly staff , comfortable beds, spacious rooms and wonderful views of either the sea or the Tumulus. Very clean and very quiet. Easy access to Carnac Ville on foot and a wonderful location.

Great hotel to stay at in the Carnac area. Very pleasant garden with a lovely view over the bay. Well located for a walk to the Carnac places of interest. Very nice room with a terrace. Breakfast was very good in a splendid seating area.

A terrific place to stay in Carnac. The hotel itself is great with the nicest staff, a cute little bar and easy and enjoyable walk to the Carnac stones. The restaurant is awesome for breakfast and even better for dinner. Beautiful views and away from the tour bus crowds- but a short walk down hill if you want to go in to town. Highly recommend if you are staying in Carnac!

Difficult to reconcile other reviews with our experience. Room was small but OK. Dinner service, with only half a dozen tables occupied and three waiting staff, was unbelievably slow (two and a half hours for four courses). First course was good, the second was utterly bizarre - a "what have we got left in the fridge?" amalgum of ill suited companions. The dessert was equally odd, but after waiting so long we had given up caring. Our disstisfaction was met with polite astonishment that we had failed to appreciate the experierience: the fault was clearly ours. Having spent a decade on the board of a Michelin starred restaurant, I beg to differ. We skipped breakfast.

We found ourselves looking for hotels around Carnac after our campervan broke down during a week away in early July. The Hotel Tumulus was one of the few places with rooms free but what a delightful find! We had inadvertently managed to book during the last week of low season so we had a gorgeous double room for half the summer price. The breakfasts were sumptuous, the pool was great but the best thing about the hotel were the fantastic staff who seemed to work around the clock but were always happy, helpful and polite. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lovely hotel, perfectly situated in Carnac, right next to the Tumulus of St Michel & in walking distance of a portion of the alignments.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal in the restaurant & the customer service was excellent.

There was a flash sale for a 15min massage, which I decided to take up & I can say that it was incredible for the short time.

The room was fine, clean & comfortable. The only thing is there was a rumbling for much of the day we couldn't make out, it feels like trains are running underneath, however, it stopped before we went to sleep.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.
