This is fantastic traditional hotel which ticks most of the boxes. We stayed for 5 nights on golfing holiday and can the staff were excellent .

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

Dear "GuyJersey", Your comment is very informative and complete. However, I would like to explain a few points to clarify details you expose. 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. You feel that the garden... More

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. We drove up and were still marvelling at the stunning views when the car door was opened by a porter waiting with a trolley for our luggage - a great start after a long drive. The car was then taken by the... More

Dear "LauraJoanneP", I can only thank you for this laudatory and very detailed comment. You and your family will always be welcome in Dinard. 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. Looking forward to your next 5* stay. with kindest... More

Upon arrival we found the hotel staff to be very welcoming and were allocated a large family room with very large ( amazingly comfortable ) King Size Bed, child's single bed and sofa bed ( which was opened in the evenings).

Spent three nights here on a golfing break. Relatively expensive but you get what you pay for. Attentive service, efficient and pleasant. My room was excellent, very clean and maintained to a very high standard. Apart from breakfast we only are once in the hotel, and the food was excellent. The centre of Dinard was only a 15 minute walk... More

We have been to this hotel many times and it never disappoints - maybe the rooms are a bit smaller than you would want and maybe it is a bit expensive but we regard it as a bit of a treat. The pool is a very good size. The dining room is wonderful, overlooking the harbour and the food is... More
