A one night stay before catching the ferry. Beautiful old house, very warm welcome. 5 minutes from the port. My husband left his scarf which is being returned to us!! We would definitely would recommend this delightful hotel. Nigel and Diana

We spent just one night in this typical Saint Malo house of the XVII century (actually, it is located in Saint Servan, not in Saint Malo, but we found Saint Servan as interesting as the most famous nearby Saint Malo). The place is very charming and full of character. We had a spacious family room facing the garden. It was... More

The Valmarin is perfect and we recommend it to anyone. The building is absolutely charming, placed in a large and beautiful garden. We loved especially the breakfast. It was one of the best in my Life.

Our family of 4 spent three nights here and found it a great place to stay and explore the local area. The staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to visit and to eat. The breakfast was delicious, with wonderful home made local dishes. We would definitely stay here again.

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
