“wolf in sheeps clothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2008

We stayed here on a overnight stop prior to getting the ferry from St Malo.
we booked a room for 4, which turned out to be be two adjourning rooms. upon arrival the hotel appears to be in a lovely spot overlooking a lake. the rooms again appeared nice, the bathroom being lovely. we checked in which was very smooth and found our way to the our room.
as previously stated the bathroom was lovely, very modern. each room had flat screen tv and large opening patio doors. whilst they have tried to update the rooms with tv etc underneath these frills they were very shabby! after a 4hr journey we were all looking forward to having showers only to be told that they had a problem with their hot water tanks and had no hot water!.
we had booked a table at their restaurant for dinner, to be fair the food was wonderful and i cannot find fault with anything relating to their restaurant (not too expensive either). the problems only begin come bedtime. The hotel employs a cleaner whom starts work from 12 midnight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! from 12 to around 4am all you can hear is a hoover along with chairs being scrapped along the floor, doors banging etc. the rooms are also very hot but as there is no air con, we couldn't open the windows as the road alongside the hotel turns into a race track at night, motorbikes racing each other with the loudest exhaust pipes i have ever heard! if you are not bothered about getting any sleep then stay here but if like us you have a long journey the following day dont bother. oh and one more thing, whilst dinner was delightful breakfast was a shambles and not worth paying for! also i did complain about the cleaner and the staff just laughed!

Having previous experience of Campanile hotels in northern France, we had no hesitation in booking this via the Campanile/Kyriad website. However, the Kyriad (it's closer to Dinard than to Saint-Malo) fell slightly short of our previous experiences of Campanile hotels.

It is easy to find - the drive from Saint Malo across the 'Route de la Barrage' is a spectacular approach, with the hotel set just back off the riverside.

The car park is ample, and the reception area is pretty standard. Our travelling party had booked two separate rooms - one was ready upon our arrival at 3pm, but we had to wait almost 2 hours later for the second room to be cleaned.

The first room was a ground-floor disabled room. Perfectly fitted out for the disabled traveller, but had an extremely strong smell of tobacco smoke. No windows in the room - only a "back door" that opened onto ground level lawns outside.

The second room was for four persons - a double and a bunk bed. It was compact without feeling claustrophic. Access was not available through the hotel - it was through the car park (the wet weather was not helpful). The room quickly became warm and stuffy, and the lack of a proper window (there was a small window in the bathroom, and the "front door" which opened onto the car park) did not help. However, the room was clean, and the beds were comfortable.

We did not try the restaurant - based on the menu, the food would have appeared more at home at a higher-quality hotel than the Kyriad. The evening bar was fine, albeit quiet. We made do with a quick trip to the local supermarket, 2 minutes further west.

Breakfast was a relatively standard buffet affair. All the "usual" options were available (although the fruit juices were rather good), despite the fact that we couldn't find a napkin for love nor money.

The receptionists were perfectly friendly, and at home speaking English or smiling as we tried out our French.

Was a reasonable stopover on our trip through France for one night, although not sure I'd really want to stay much longer.

  • Liked — Reasonable location, friendly staff, pleasant bar/breakfast area
  • Disliked — Evening menu, some rooms accessible only via car park, lack of windows, compact rooms
