Location is especially nice. Room is elegantly furnished but THE LIGHTS ARE TOO DIM view out the window is well keep gravel roof. Not so attractive. Staff was helpful I sure wish we had view of the bay. They would not accommodate that plea.

We 'chanced' upon this hotel whilst we were passing through Dinard. We were offered a pleasant room at a very good price which, as it was inclusive of breakfast, was little more than many lesser hotels in town. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Agreed, the weather was fantastic which always helps with a seaside hotel, but this was the most comfortable (and therefore enjoyable) stay that I have ever had in a high-end establishment. Everyone was exceptionally friendly, food was perfect and the service was faultless. It's relatively expensive but it remains a real treat. It's even just slightly old-fashioned but that just...

Stayed here for a weekend break with my wife and young children. First impressions are wonderful, the entrance to the hotel is beautiful, concierge and reception staff were excellent.
