We wanted to be in Saint Servan as this an ideal base and close but not too close to Saint Malo. Also there are very good restaurants and bars near by and with parking not always easy having a secure car park at the back it's a worthwhile benefit. Having booked through booking.com I guess the room choices weren't detailed... More

Very happy with our stay here, beautiful house , grounds and room. Some signs of wear but can be forgiven in such a grand old place. Breakfast costs extra at 48€ for family of four, a little pricey, but home made jams and yoghurt were very good.

Le Valmarin was highly recommended by our French Uncle and when we (all Americans) got there, we understood why. It was an incredible insider's gem. The only "downside" for any tourist was that it is truly old and historic hotel, which we consider this to be a plus. So if you want a modern, stereotypical "roadside hotel", skip this one,... More

Good location with parking. Short drive to walled city and ferry terminal to Jersey about 30 minutes to St Michel. Best restaurants in St Malo a short walk away next to beach. Rooms a bit tired. Nice garden and quiet. No elevator and I don't think we had a shower.

We arrived on the busiest weekend in May 2014. Last room available was the room in the attic; stayed there for one night and then we were moved down to a room overlooking the garden for remainder of stay. Owners were wonderful; we weren't sure of our itinerary and they convinced us to stay for 4 nights and planned out... More

We stopped for the night in this hotel in St. Malo in order to board an early-morning (0955) ferry to Portsmouth. The building is a converted manor-type house with a dozen rooms overlooking a lovely garden at the back, painstakingly maintained by the man of the house. His wife runs the front desk with a brisk, no-nonsense approach. We had... More

This 18th century "Malouinière" (traditional mansion home built by wealthy St.-Malo shippers and located just outside of the walled St.-Malo city) has been beautifully preserved. It has high ceilings, period chandeliers, lamps, and model boats throughout the mansion, and features a lovely small park behind the home, festooned with roses and providing a safe location to park one's car. The... More

We stayed the night at Le Valmarin on the 12th/13th May 2014 having booked on line. We came to St Malo from Chatellerault in Vienne so quite a long drive. We found the hotel excellent and a beautiful place to stay. The welcome was warm, and we were offered a choice of rooms, all of them equally gorgeous and comfortable.... More
