What a lovely hotel, right near the ramparts and sea wall. We enjoyed the scenic view from the panoramic restaurant on the 6th floor while eating breakfast. The hotel has charm and character. It is a little faded, the shower leaked on to the floor, and we had to share one bottle of shampoo/ conditioner between us for two nights.... More

We had escaped before to St Malo and had eaten here a couple of times and the other half had mentioned wanting to return to stay in the hotel. (Christmas present sorted - a surprise trip to St Malo). We spent New Year's Eve in Rennes and stayed in St Malo ahead of returning back to England on the ferry.... More

We stayed for a 2 night break for my wife's birthday and we weren't disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable with a view of the Hotel de Ville which is delightful at night. The bathroom was excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the hotel because St Malo is overflowing with quality restaurants. The hotel... More

I attended a conference here and stayed in the hotel for three days. The room was lovely and the food was perfect. Great location and fantastic old town. Will stay again. Only two complaints. Shower didn't work and wifi was shocking. Otherwise....... Great

Spent 2 nights at the hotel and in St Malo. Booked early in Feb so got a good price of £122 for a superior room. Had a lovely view out to sea and although the decoration was a bit worn I liked the look of the hotel and would return. The location is excellent and you are in the heart... More

I stayed here only one night, with a tour group. I know I must return to this amazing town and i will want to stay in this hotel again. Our room had the most amazing sea wall and water views and the room was very comfortable. Sadly, we arrived in the late afternoon and were leaving the next morning; there... More

Spent just one night here as catching the ferry early next day, lovely hotel in a perfect postion in the heart of the old walled city, very friendly staff and a informative and pleasant welcome. Room small but spotlessly clean with wonderful shower room newly refurbished and beautiful view of the ocean. Will defiantly be back.
