We added a last-minute one night stay as a detour en route to Brittany. This hotel’s greatest asset may be Irene at the front desk. She offered suggestions for our evening in Vannes, but also discussed wonderful stops for next day: charming villages and the monoliths of Carnac, which are astonishing. Her insight enriched our journey greatly - merci beaucoup, Irene!

This is the place to stay if you want a good, friendly and super clean hotel. Nothing fancy just a perfect hotel for staying a few nights. The staff are friendly, helpful and the whole place is situated in a great location, just 5 mins walk from the old town and a large supermarket as well. Parking on site can be arranged and breakfast looked great too!

Room Tip: Corner rooms but are more expensive.....but worth it!

We're huge fans of Vannes, this is our third visit, but the first to this particular hotel.

Its really easy to find and has convenient parking onsite, however it would appear that spaces are limited to it may be prudent to book in advance if possible.

The hotel is pretty basic, but is smart and clean, the reception staff were a little joyless and filling in an application form just to stay one night seemed a little unnecessary, certainly not something we had to do at any of the other pre-booked hotels we stayed in during our two-week tour.

Our room was small, but very functional and clean, we had a flat screen TV with UK channels which was nice and a good shower room, with nice powerful shower.

The location is a short walk to the top of the town and you are within the old town within a brisk 5 minute walk.

Breakfast was as expected, typically French and kept topped up and fresh.

Booked through Brittany Ferries then emailed the hotel direct requesting a larger room (for which we were willing to pay a premium) in light of some reviews on TA. This email was ignored but was eventually acknowledged when I sent it again using the hotel’s contact form. When we arrived the room we were given was small. I asked reception for a larger room and was told “all our rooms are the same size” (clearly untrue) and when I referred the unhelpful gentleman in reception to the email I had sent, this changed to “no larger rooms are available”. He seemed to rather enjoy being unhelpful and wasn’t in any way apologetic.

It is unfortunate that this was our first impression of the hotel, as it is well situated, the rooms clean and the beds comfortable. The staff generally were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was good for a budget hotel although the breakfast room was rather overwhelmed on Sunday morning. The secure car park really tests driving skills if you have anything larger than a mini!

Although this is only a 3 star review I would certainly give the Escale Oceania Vannes another try if we were in the area, as I imagine our experience is not typical.
