Thank you for your comments, I am sorry that you found the parking to be a problem but I do explain all of this on my website for everyone to be aware of before booking. Only a few of the larger hotels have some (very limited) parking available but of course you pay much more to stay in them, also when their limited parking is full you then have to pay and display on the road or public car park. I have run the St. Malo for 20 years and used to serve breakfast within a 2 hour window but found myself sat twiddling my thumbs for the first hour and a half as most guests seem to come down during the last half hour and this is the reason for the 1hour slot. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to clarify these points. Best regards Maureen
