My family have stayed at the Grand Hotel about 5 or 6 times over the past few years and never been disappointed. Service always very good and the swimming pool an excellent distraction for kids on rainy days. Thank you to everyone who looked after us during our recent stay from the gentlemen who drove our car back and forth... More

This hotel is one of the best we have stayed in. Reception was fast efficient and friendly. All staff were pleasant and smiled and extremely helpful. Our room was perfect.

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. Not one possible complaint, or minus point. We felt like the most important visitors, like kings.

My husband loved this place! He likes his hotels tony, with a strong sense of tradition and history, with real lobbies, quirky reading alcoves, a good bar, and a good restaurant.

Beautiful building beautifully located in beautiful Dinard. Perfect for joggers and romance. Reception is very helpful and friendly. Bar had a lot of fancy cocktails, sunset was amazing. And beware of seagulls and never leave food on the balcony - fat birds will steal it in a moment.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since 1859 the majestic, white facade has contemplated Saint-Malo bay. The first hotel built in what was to become THE sea-side resort on the Emerald Coast was initially named the Hotel de Dinard, before becoming the Grand Hotel Barriere de Dinard. Renovated by expert decorator Jacques Garcia, the hotel offers the utmost elegance, comfort and finery. Situated 45 min. Away from Mont Saint Michel, Dinard the "elegant" is all yours: the sea air and spray, the palm trees, the sea gulls, the beaches, the golf clubs by the sea, the Casino, Port BRETON tennis courts, midnight strolls, Dinard market and the hotel's heated pool, wellbeing at the ESPACE BIEN ETRE, Sauna and steamroom, lazing on the terrace and in the gardens facing the bay, summer jazz brunches, cocktails at "333 cafe", dinners at the blue. B, facing the sea, buffet breakfasts watching the sun comes up: could this sum up the good life combined with discrete luxury? ... more   less
