We loved our stay at this hotel... The location was the best thing! And the cocktails in the bar were outstanding and not over priced - the room was quite basic and tiny TV but we didn't spend much time in the room - we were in the town or on the beach and the location can't be beaten...

Yet again having been let off the metaphorical leash, (I dislike line-dancing and my wife hates sea crossings) so my friend and I visit St Malo each June and we have a few days misbehaving, eating, drinking and ogling. Brittany Ferries have a deal that cannot be beaten and as a result I decided to take the plunge and take... More

This isn't the first time that I've stayed here and, hopefully, it won't be the last. It's a comfy, homely hotel in the typically French mid-range style. It's clean, quirky and lively. I had a not-overly large, slightly cramped, standard double that overlooked the Intra Muros Place Chateaubriand (and Hotel de Ville). I had to squeeze around the loo to... More

We stayed here for one night on a quick visit to St Malo and have stayed here before. It has a lot of character and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. The location in terrific - just inside the walls and on the square opposite the castle. We booked a castle view room, having had a view of... More

Great location in cobbled streets right on the front of the bay inside the walled town. Room was fine but no view. Breakfasts were really good. Very small lift so you wont get much in but you and a bag. Great bar with friendly people.

This is a nice hotel in a very good location. The rooms are spacious though in ours the modernising and the redecorating over previous decor was a shame, making it into a bit of a box that could be anywhere. Excellent bathroom. All very clean. Friendly staff. The front bar is outstanding - bustling and friendly.

We booked a family trip with Brittany Ferries who were a great tour operator and very helpful arranging a large group booking for two nights in the lovely walled town of St Malo. A town most people drive through as they leave the ferry to travel into Brittany or the rest of France. As a family we have stayed in... More

Hotel ideal for the walled town of St Malo as in the heart of town and opposite to Hotel de Ville & Museum surrounded by all the cafe's and short walk from ferries (But don't make the mistake we made walking from ferry and followed hotel signs which took us the long way around the top of town, they are...

We stayed here with a large tour group. The rooms were nicely appointed and clean; the bathrooms were lovely. Only complaint would be the teensy tiny elevator which could only accommodate one person at a time with a suitcase... but once you get to your room, all is well. Excellent location here!! It can get a bit noisy at night... More

Have stayed here several times on short golfing breaks to Brittany. Less than 10 minutes from the ferry terminal its a great place to stay and explore the town and local countryside. It's located within the walls of St Malo, plenty of restaurants and bars right outside the hotel. The rooms vary and on my last visit I was given... More
