Spent 4 nights here as part of my 60th birthday week. Real 5* hotel with beautiful views over the yacht club and bay. Luxurious rooms (I received an unexpected upgrade) with everything you could want. The breakfast each morning was really 5*, best I have ever had, nothing too much trouble. Eating breakfast in the morning sun overlooking a beautiful... More

I would have liked to have shared my comments with the management of this hotel before leaving them on Tripadvisor, but I originally sent them on the hotel contact form, but received no response, and subsequently requested the manager's e-mail address, but this has not been forthcoming. As others have said the outside of this hotel is very impressive and... More

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. We chose not to eat in the restaurant but, of course, had breakfast which was... More

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. The rooms we had however were tired, way too hot and desperately in need of modernising. Service in the restaurant was slow and we were surrounded by dirty plates at breakfast... More

This is really a wonderfull hotel and restaurant, with a terrific view on the harbour and St Malo, All employees, from to lowest, to almost the highest are extreme friendly, every wish is no command, but done with enthousiasm.
