We stayed for one night before catching an early ferry. This hotel is in a good location and although the bedroom was basic, it was clean, warm and comfortable. There is a very nice bar and breakfast area too. We had a warm welcome from the host who parked our car in the secure garage and brought it back to... More

Unfortunately we were forced to leave beautiful Jersey a day early due to the onset of " the storm of the decade" - the hotel that held our reservation in St Malo was booked out - suggesting that St Malo was booked out and suggested we try the Bristol Union. Very, very warm and helpful welcome - with suggestions for... More

We chose this hotel because it was within the walls of Saint-Malo and appeared to be at the centre of things in the walled city. A really excellent choice in that we were within short walking distance of all the action! We arrived by car, the sat nav taking us through the narrow streets of Saint-Malo and delivering us exactly... More

Spent one night here in October. Room 203. The staff were very welcoming and spoke good English. The room was fine for a night. Separate shower with piping hot water. Separate wash basin and a separate toilet. It was clean, the bed was comfy and we were warm even with the window open. View of the square from the room... More

My wife and I stayed at the Bristol Union for one night prior to catching the ferry back to Jersey. We picked the hotel because we met at Bristol University and got married 39 years ago so Bristol Union seemed appropriate. Don't be fooled by the two stars. You may not get 24 hour room service but the hotel is... More

An absolutely brilliant hotel. Location within the walls is perfect as it's very central. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly with an excellent grasp of English (if you so need it). Rooms are basic and a bit tired (skirting board coming away from walls) but very clean and beds are comfortable. This is the only reason that the hotel... More

We stayed only one night, in august and we felt lucky to get a room since it was the only vacancy for that week. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of Saint Malo without the noise of the crowded places. Close to the restaurants, the beach, the ramparts, etc. They have a private underground parking located in the... More

Overall good experience right in the centre of the Old Town. Best suited to travellers without a car. Our room looked out onto a busy square and we thought noise would be a problem, especially as we had to keep the window wide open, but this was not the case. Air conditioning would have been welcome.

The hotel is located very close to the main entrance of the Old Town. It takes only 15 minutes walking from the train station; it costs around 10 Euros if you take a taxi. We stayed in two connected room in a junior suite with 2 bathrooms. Hotel facilities are good and clean. However, the only lift in the hotel... More
