Lovely hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. During our stay they booked taxis, restaurants reservations and arranged room service one evening. They have an excellent breakfast buffet and a relaxing lounge area for evening drinks. It's also an excellent location and only a few hundred yards from the beach and coastal walks. Plus various restaurants and St Malo can be easily reached in 20 minutes by either the sea taxis or bus which are both only 10 minutes away. The hotel is also wheelchair accessible though out and the staff will happily advise you your best room options. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return soon. It's a lovely boutique hotel that will not disapoint.

It was our first time at this hotel - but we intend to return as we had an excellent stay.

The staff were very friemdly and helpful and the suite we'd booked was spacious, beautifully furnished and was also very comfortable and practical (which some 'designer rooms' aren't!).

There was also off-street parking available which was convenient.

We're looking forward to our next stay there :o)

The hotel is very well positioned in the center of Dinard, close to the beach and the market. It has a lot of character with a British touch. The breakfast is excellent with some local products. Manon at reception was very helpful, recommending some very good address for dinner. An excellent stop where we plan to go back. To be recommended! Just great.

We have been visiting this hotel each year since at least 2014 and have always had an enjoyable visit. The hotel is useful for us as it is very close to St Malo (for the ferry) and it has secure parking.
During our first stay this year in August, we had a lovely room and received a very warm welcome. The room was spacious clean and in a good state of repair.
We also stayed prior to returning home in September and the experience could not have been more different.
Despite the hotel being very quiet, although I am a gold Accor member, we were given a room which must have been one of the smallest in the hotel (if this was an upgrade, I can not imagine what a more basic room would have been like).I appreciate that all the rooms are different which makes the hotel quite quirky. However, the room we were allocated was much more suitable for one guest rather than two; the bed being very close to the sloping ceiling. walls and bathroom. There was a big tear in the blinds in the bedroom and no blind on the bathroom windows, making privacy impossible. Also, to add insult to injury, those on reception forgot to give me my free drinks voucher. Unfortunately, not being able to speak French well it was not possible to complain.
I really hope that the September experience is a one off and if we use the hotel next year, our visits will be as enjoyable as they have been historically.

I have to say, the staff at this hotel was probably one of the best I've ever experienced anywhere, in the world. They seemed truly eager to make sure we had a nice stay. They were VERY patient as we had some room moving issues based upon our needs. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The bar has good snacks, and a very nice breakfast. The location can't be beat in Dinard. It definitely was a big part of why we enjoyed Dinard so much. Well done!!

When you enter you found a very modest hall , the hotel is in fact like a rent room all is old and not attractive . Room on the third floor ( The best room available ) is increasable small and without space for the luggage . We are lucky that reservation was only for one night . Parking was not available and we have to use a public parking that was not near the hotel .

Dear Paolo B, Thank you very much for this report on your experience at the Royal Emeraude in Dinard. All the facts mentioned are correct, except your comment on the third floor which is certainly not the best floor as each of our 4 levels has a special decoration and theme : British India style on the ground floor, Transatlantic Cruises on the first floor, Orient Express on the second and 30’s aircraft style on the third floor. You have booked the smallest category of room, we have largest rooms and suites in our upper categories. The building dated 1890, has been completely rebuilt and refurnished in 2008, that is not so old, and we are a “boutique hotel” that gives this impression to you. Our hotel is modest as you mentioned, and we are very proud of it ! We try to keep a very warm and family style atmosphere, and our situation in the center of Dinard permits to walk around very easily. We only have 12 spaces for parking, please call the hotel to check availabilities at the moment of the reservation. Just check other “big” hotels in Dinard whenever you decide to come again in this beautiful part of Brittany, there are some! Best regards. Marc Scognamiglio, General Manager

Excellent location, close to the beach and shops and restaurants.
We were lucky to find free parking in the street.
The staff was very helpful and friendly.
We attended a jazz music evening in the beautifully appointed conservatory on one evening, which was very pleasant.

Points to improve:
Though the rooms are well appointed, they are small, as are the bathrooms. The shower experience could definitely be improved.
Otherwise, the rooms have tea, coffee and water and are comfortable.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Royal Emeraude hotel in Dinard, France. We appreciated the warm welcome we received from the staff and were very impressed with the opulence of the hotel. That said it was not a stuffy and formal environment but an extremely comfortable hotel. The room was exquisite, the bed comfortable and it had a wonderful in room tea service. Breakfast was outstanding and the staff were clearly committed to providing the highest level of service. We would be happy to return and would recommend this hotel to our friends and family.

We had 2 lovely nights at Royal Emeraude Dinard. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and the location is great. Next to the beach and very close to the main center of Dinard. We had a great Jazz evening on the Friday as well, which made our stay even better! And all the staff is lovely and professional.
We highly recommend this place! :)

I booked a night here as I was passing through the area and had never been to Dinan. On the Accor Hotels website it is referred to as a Sofitel, the top of the range so I set my expectations accordingly of one of the best hotels in the group.

It is well situated close to the town beach and walking the other way there are many restaurants which is just as well as the hotel doesn't have one, a Sofitel without a restaurant?

On arrival we were greeted in rapidly spoken French and my requests made in French for the lady on reception to slow down a little as it is not my first language were treated with distain and she continued as before so I missed about 50% of what she said to me before being dispatched with my key to my room.

The room made my heart sink. It was small, poorly lit and the walls were painted either dark grey or dark red with a black net curtain at the window. The bathroom was fitted with a bath and washbasin, the lavatory was separate. Toiletries, in large containers clipped to the wall were completely out of reach in the bath and the only wall bracket for the shower was way too low to make use of it if you are anything over a metre tall which like most people I am.

I do wonder what sort of person 'designs' horrible, heartsink rooms like this, they really should not be in the hospitality trade and perhaps should seek a future designing accomodation in hell.

Breakfast is served in the bar with low chairs and tables to match making it quite an uncomfortable experience. The selection of food for a Sofitel was extremely poor offering little choice. Staff both at breakfast and around the hotel generally were very thin on the ground.

Check out was swift, this time I was asked by a different and more helpful lady if I would prefer to speak in French of English, had she been on duty the evening before I might have had a better first impression of the place.

Was it worth €200.00 for a single night? Certainly not and I cannot imagine circumstances under which I would return unless prices were reduced or standards raised and the rooms decorated and fitted more appropriately.

je ne peux pas vous apporter réponse à votre question, MAIS cet hotel est digne d'un M'GALLERY - je peux vous affirmer que, nous l'avons découvert en 2017, et que nous sommes impatients d'y retourner en 2018- en plus, le restaurant que cet hotel conseille, est des plus attirants.. en plus, on est pris en charge complétement, y compris pour la voiture... sans compter que la région mérite d'y séjourner au moins une semaine, tellement nous y sommes BIEN accueillis...
Dinard, France
Madame, Monsieur, L'hôtel ne dispose pas d'une piscine. La piscine municipale se trouvant à 100m. Nous disposons d'une salle de sport équipées ainsi que d'un hammam proposé entre 16h et 20h sur demande. En ce qui concerne la location de vélo nous n'offrons pas ce service mais vous trouverez à Dinard un loueur de vélo spécialisé. Au plaisir de vous recevoir Cordialement Camille
