We spent one weekend here in September and it was perfect. The staff was very attentive, the room and facilities were very good and the spa facilities as well. We took the breakfast in the room and it was very good as well, along with some nice local pastries! I have nothing bad to say, our stay was perfect and... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and had booked 2 deluxe rooms. We were given rooms on the second floor at the back of the hotel. Although the rooms were large the heat was unbearable.

We were part of a group of 30. We were told that groups didn't get turn down service or basic amenities like shampoo and conditioner.

The building is very beautiful from the outside. I loved the iron work of the balconies. I did not get the impression that the hotel is dated. Rather, the decoration is classical. Although slow, I found the antique elevator adorable. Adds a character. We were given a good sized room. It had a beautiful view. Everything functioned well. The bed... More

Pleasant stay at the end and professional staff but no A/C. Our room was really really hot and given the daily price, this is really disappointing... The price of the parking (30€) per day was also quite unexpectedly high. This is really not what I would expect of a 5 star hotel.

We stayed in a brand newly decorated junior suite which was just beautiful-I would recommend getting one of these, as they are truly well-done.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since 1859 the majestic, white facade has contemplated Saint-Malo bay. The first hotel built in what was to become THE sea-side resort on the Emerald Coast was initially named the Hotel de Dinard, before becoming the Grand Hotel Barriere de Dinard. Renovated by expert decorator Jacques Garcia, the hotel offers the utmost elegance, comfort and finery. Situated 45 min. Away from Mont Saint Michel, Dinard the "elegant" is all yours: the sea air and spray, the palm trees, the sea gulls, the beaches, the golf clubs by the sea, the Casino, Port BRETON tennis courts, midnight strolls, Dinard market and the hotel's heated pool, wellbeing at the ESPACE BIEN ETRE, Sauna and steamroom, lazing on the terrace and in the gardens facing the bay, summer jazz brunches, cocktails at "333 cafe", dinners at the blue. B, facing the sea, buffet breakfasts watching the sun comes up: could this sum up the good life combined with discrete luxury? ... more   less
