3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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.

This hotel is very typical of Barriere hotels, well-located on the bay side of Dinard, with an excellent restaurant and bar. 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. Our room faced the bay and it was only a short walk to the St.... More

The grand hotel of Dinard is very well located with great views over the bay of Saint-Malo. We had a suite on the top floor with a magnificent view. The staff is very attentive and respectful.

We have stayed in the Normandy Barriere in Deauville and were so impressed with that hotel that we were looking forward to our stay in its sister hotel in Dinard.

The hotel from the outstand looks nice. However upon entering the reception it appears to be dated. You immediately notice the hotel is understaffed with no assistance with luggage. Room was substandard when paying €715 per night. Coffee table has significant signs of wear and needs to be sanded back down and revarnished. Room was clean, however dated and worn... More

The staff and superb location are the stars here. Excellent breakfast: dinner was good but not outstanding. We were disappointed that we had a particularly small room, but this may have been because we had bought a very good deal or because we had our dog - or a combination of both - and this room gave direct access to...

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
