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. Jon and vanessa Jeffery.
The Royal Emeraude Dinard is uniquely located in Dinard, just a block off the beach. The boardwalk is great as well as the views. The hotel is in very good condition. We had breakfast each morning which was very satisfying. Plus, there was live nightly entertainment. The major asset for this Hotel is the staff. I will explain shortly. When we booked we were not aware of the limited "on-site" parking, I believe 10 cars. Especially during May, parking is a potential issue. While some on street parking is free, other spaces are subject to payment (meters). Honestly, there are remote parking lots but you need to drop all your luggage at the Hotel when checking in. Couple unique feature at this Hotel. As a conservation measure, the room lights will not come on unless you place your room card in the light switch at the front door. We had to call the Front Desk to figure this out. Likewise, the Hotel does have AC but it is not turned on in the rooms all the time. Still not sure we fully understand but the Hotel does provide AC, just not all the time. Fortunately, the temperatures were fine while we were there in May. Normally I would rate this Hotel "Very Good". I upped my rating to "Excellent" due the outstanding effort of the Staff. During our stay, we encountered a serious problem with our rental car. (I will not mention the name of the international car rental company other than to say the car rental company staff we dealt with spoke no English; and my wife speaks some French). Luckily, we encountered the problem about 5 -10 minutes from the Hotel and were fortunate to locate a parking space about a block or so from the Hotel. We took picture of the malfunction warnings (numerous) on the dash of the car and explained our situation to the Hotel Staff. "Anne" (or St. Anne) spoke both French and English. She reassured us that she would get us help. She contacted the car rental company and explained the situation to several people before the car rental company agreed to send a tech and tow truck to meet us. To remedy the situation, the tech simply removed the positive battery cable, forcing the car's memory to reset. Obviously, this did not rectify the problem or provide us any comfort. We went back to the Hotel to update the Staff. "Sandrine" contacted the car rental company the next morning to explain that we were not comfortable touring around Brittany and Normandie with this car. She pressed the car rental company until they relented and agreed to get us another car the next afternoon. While we lost a day out of this part of our trip, we are forever thankful to Anne and Sandrine at the Royal Emeraude Dinard to "fighting" for us!…
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 .
I stayed here years ago before it was renovated. It has been renovated superbly. On both occasions had an amazing time. The town of dinard is well worth a visit. Plenty of restaurants for all budgets.
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! :)
Very nice hotel located near the sea, generally in August we went on cruises but not this year with the virus, we loved the marine decoration of this hotel, everything was well thought out, in the evening we liked to listen to the artist at the piano, they even agreed to give us a nice piano demonstration, it was very good and moving
The room was beautifully decorated, spacious Very good service It would be nice though if the glass roof or the windows in the breakfast room could be opened the armchairs in the breakfast room are beautiful but very incomfortable when you eat, much too low Choice of lactose and gluten free food is poor Not enough places to park in the parking
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.
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)
Very well situated in the center of Dinard, once there you don't need your car, you can walk around and there are beautiful signed walks to be done ! The rooms are small clean and well decorated, good bed and quiet at night ! The breakfast is a buffet, comprehensive and complete ! The staff is very friendly and helpfull, no restaurant in the Hotel allthough one can have a bite which comes very well prepared and presented ! Very nice place to stay !
