We had a three-bedded room on the top floor. The toilet was between the bedroom and the corridor and had no washbasin (although there’s plenty of space for one), so after using it we had to open three doors (toilet, bedroom and bathroom) before washing our hands. We were given the impression that breakfast was included. The first question was “would you like tea, coffee or chocolate in the morning?”. In fact it was €12.50 each for a pot of coffee, a chewy croissant, three thin, small slices of ham and processed cheese between the three of us and cereal on a buffet with no cold milk. Service was slow, although I’d stressed our need to be at the ferry early as we have a dog, and unapologetic. We sat at the only table set for three and were brusquely told to move. Stay here if you must: it’s close to the port, it’s nicely decorated and the garden is pretty but nothing else was endearing.…
Booked this hotel with friends and we both had family rooms. We made a huge mistake and couldn't get out of our booking! Totally unfriendly to our families - made up new rules as she went along (eg charged us for coffee machine and coffee with no transparency of the fees verbally or anywhere in the building) ... threatened to call the police on us even though we did nothing wrong... we had to tip toe around her and video and take pictures of our exit for fear of her retribution.... and the list goes on and on. So many more pleasant places to stay in St Malo - don't give this lady your money or time. She will ruin your holiday.
This is the worst hotel experience I've had anywhere in the world. We stayed in a family room at Le Valmarin and our friends from London, who speak no French, were in the other. The owner/manager flew into a rage after we mistakenly left a pair of children's socks and a beach tent on the back lawn overnight and then tried to eat our own breakfast in the garden. The hotel had charged us E50 for a paltry breakfast the first morning, which was why we declined to order it again. (The owner never told us that it was against the rules to bring our own food into the garden and later, we saw other guests doing the same thing.) However, when we defended ourselves, she shouted that we were the worst guests she had ever had and that we should be in a campsite instead. This was Day 3 of a week-long booking. We asked to be released from the rest of our reservation--we were ready to leave that moment-- but she refused. A few hours later, she offered our English-speaking friends a coffee pot for their room. They gladly accepted. It was only when we checked out that our friends saw they had been charged E10/day for the pot. She claimed that she had told them twice in English about this charge and that she had also told me about it. When my friends disputed the charges (which she had already run on their card), she again flew into a fury and yelled at all of us -- at times, without her mask. She threatened to call the police if we didn't leave. We said we hoped she would as we would appreciate some legal help. She backed down. After more yelling, she threatened to charge us for damages if we didn't leave that minute. When asked what those damages might be, she muttered something about the lamentable state of the linen which would now have to be dry-cleaned. (At a hotel, especially during coronavirus, I would hope that the linen would be dry-cleaned between guests anyway.) I asked her for her name but she refused to give it. She also refused to state her position. However, I believe her name is Françoise and that she is the manager. My friends and family sorely regret this experience. This was to be the capstone of my family's wonderful year in France as well as a rare chance to be with our London friends. Françoise's incivility left a sour taste for all of us. Fortunately, we know France to be a warm and hospitable country and that this hotel is the outlier. I strongly recommend that travelers, especially those with children, avoid Le Valmarin at all costs.…
An interesting place to stay, very old house that is showing its age. Parking was in the garden (or park) so nice and secure. But don’t return after 11pm as the gate is locked and you must park in the street. Our room (19) was on the top floor, bit of a climb and no lift and overlooked the garden, quite cool, as it never got direct sun so great on a hot day. Very quiet and peaceful. Big bedroom with two comfortable single beds and a fair size bathroom, with very strangely a wall mounted ash tray, very 50’s. Bath with a shower attachment and not shower curtain. Our first day I had to ask for more shower gel, as it had not been replenished. Breakfast was good with real tea, fresh bread etc. It’s within an easy walk of the harbour which has many restaurants.
This is a lovely building but from the minute you arrive you feel as though you are being intrusive. This was our last stay in France after three weeks in Brittany and, for us unusually, there was no warmth in the welcome at all. The woman on reception was confusing, trying to do more than one thing at once and failing and whatever you do don’t ask for directions. Our room was spacious, the bed good, the bathroom OK, but no real feeling of comfort or wanting to hang out in it. At no time did we see anyone in “the salon” which tasteful was not welcoming. Breakfast was better, pleasant girl on servicewho seemed to be doing everything. Nice breakfast, very acceptable continental breakfast. We would not stay here again, in a good location but quite expensive.
