My husband and I, both early 60s, stayed at this hotel for two nights and hated to leave. It is a beautiful property with gorgeous views. We even had the low end room but still had a beautiful view of the boats and water. The restaurants had excellent service and food. All of the staff was extremely helpful. I loved... More

The hotel was very welcoming - parking has to be valet so a slight issue if you don't want to pay. Staff were so friendly and efficient, rooms were immaculate and very comfortable and as a family we had a wonderful meal in the restaurant where the views are stunning. The hotel is very central to shops, restaurants and a... More

We stayed here last year in their only renovated room. It was a lovely change to the old-fashioned Barriere Hotels I've stayed at in the past. This year, though I asked for the same room, we were given a room on the second floor that hasn't seen a renovation in decades. The wall-to-wall carpet looked ancient and the furniture was... More

Dear "VW81", As you probably already know, we are currently working on a renovation programme, which should come within the next 2 years. This will help eliminate the disadvantages you mention, but which are not a generality. I hope however to welcome you again soon in Dinard. Best regards, Franck MARIE General Manager More

This hotel is extremely charming. The rooms are fairly new but the lack air conditioning. The week were there was particularly hot and the rooms were stuffy. The restaurant was very good and it is any easy walk into the very charming, seaside village.

This is an extremely pleasant, comfortable and welcoming hotel. It has excellent facilities and is well located in a lovely town with good views. Rooms and facilities are very good, food is excellent and the hotel has a lot of character. This has been our third stay at this hotel and it has never disappointed. Highly recommended.

Dear "MDFern", Thank your for this review. Concerning the parking as you said, we own it. But not only because of the limited parking around the hotel, but also on this parking! We only have 35 places (video secured) for 89 rooms and suites. It is therefore normal to book this service in advance and benefit from personalized valet service.... More

Quite a difficult hotel to review. We tend to use it as a night stop depending on ferry times. It's part of the Barriere chain of hotels and casinos (the casino is elsewhere in Dinard) and is perched on top of a hill next to the sea with very good views over towards Saint Servan and St. Malo. We have... More

Our room rate varies depending on the season and the period. The indoor hotel swimming pool has this facility to be widely opened on the garden, and allowing bathing throughout the year.

Set above the beautiful bay that sits between Dinard and St. Malo, this elegant and timeless hotel evokes an era of seaside holidays. It is close to historic medieval towns, including the stunning Mont St. Michel. For cinema fans, the Grand Barriere was the host to Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh during the filming of "Vikings," and it... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband and two daughters whilst attending our friends' wedding nearby.

However, I would like to say simply that the “updated corridor” with screens is our "Convention area". It is nothing else but meeting rooms, and not bedroom.
