Having seen this hotel on previous trips we booked expecting it to be a little shabby chic as the main restaurant and bar are, however we were pleasantly surprised by the stylish, modern bathroom and nice, large bedroom. We didn't have a good view as we overlooked the courtyard, but this did mean it was quiet at night. Breakfast was... More

Great view from a very basic, small superior room but for £88 per night per room it's still great value. Service poor, when you could find staff they weren't that co-operative and very abrupt. Room was clean and bed reasonably comfortable. I wouldn't rush there again!

This hotel has been a stop for our annual spring break trip to France for many years. The students come from a beach-side town in California, so their enthusiasm for this hotel and the town of Saint Malo reveals their enjoyment of a completely French experience. While the hotel is a bit worn around the edges, it's charm is undeniable.... More

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
