Stayed for 4 nights at the end of last summer, really nice hotel, beautiful view, very good extensive breakfast, friendly and efficient staff. huge comfortable bed and nice bathroom, close to town centre, although close to a road, it was still quiet.

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel and it was fantastic. The staff were very helpful, friendly and service was good. My only complain is there was no slippers in the bedroom. Breakfast was nice and quite plentiful.

We recently spent three nights at The Grand, arranged through a Golf Travel Company. As such we paid approximately half the rack rate for a room. The bed was huge, the room adequate (though very dark even with all the 'eco' lights on), the bathroom frankly a little small. Breakfast was extensive and dinner very good. The location and the...

Dear "Roulade", We thank you for your review following your stay at the GRAND HOTEL BARRIÈRE of Dinard. I am confused that your opinion is mixed. Dinard is not Paris. Otherwise the room would have been double the price, such as parking or dinner. The rack rates are the highest prices. Due to the season, you have been able to... More

By this I mean that there is actually nothing negative to be stated (with the exception maybe the confusion about room availability @ the reception). At the same time: this will not be remembered as the most amazing 5* hotel you have ever been to. It all gets a bit to standard for that. The restaurant was at the same... More

Like other reviewers I feel the hotel to be 'nearly there' but it certainly doesn't detract from my overall view. The staff are very friendly, the facilities great (other than the breakfast which isn't that comprehensive according to my husband - I skipped it to go swimming) and the location just lovely. For me, this time my niggles were beauty... More

View superb. Staff superb. Location superb. Restaurant great. Room service great but not 24/7. No A/C, a minus on a hot night. Like all Barriere hotels there are a few things they could do to improve. No pen in room. Pencil provided but not that sharp. Only a small pad to write on. Internet sketchy at best. Every time you...

Perhaps at one time, this hotel was indeed grand--it is no longer. We found the rooms small and outdated, the food mediocre, the front desk staff apathetic, and the elevators broken. And without air conditioning, our open windows allowed in the noise from the patio, the street, and 7 am cleaning crews at the property. Not worth the price.

First impressions travelling on the sea bus from St Malo to Dinard, the hotel sits impressively above you as you approach the shoreline. The main entrance and dining room has high ceilings with large sparkling chandeliers; lovely bedrooms rooms with great sea views. Service and staff impeccable catering to all tastes. Not cheap but worth it.

This is not a cheap option for a stay in Dinard so I was a bit surprised to be charged an additional 25 Euros per day (on top of the room rate) for parking in the hotel car park....and then to be told I could upgrade to a sea view for a further 90 Euros a night. Not a great... More
