Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We spent two nights in june. This place is perfect. The view is extraordinary, the rooms are comfortable and very pretty. Walking distance to the "city" Breakfast on the balcony is a treat. To be recommended.

Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple

Yes, it's a bit expensive, but well worth it. The owners are delightful and helpful. The rooms are very nice and the view of the beach is extremely pleasant. Access may be hard for handicapped. Very well located near St. Malo and Dinan. We love this place!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a beach view and sunroom.

For a truly wonderful "Somewhere in Time" moment, allow yourself to soak in the luxurious atmosphere of this elegant, but comfortable, mansion. The owners are gracious and kind, the furnishings are beautiful, and the setting is splendid. After an invigorating walk along the ever-changing coastline, climb the private stairs from the beach, and settle onto the patio for a delightful view of St. Malo across the bay. After a soak in the queen's incomparable silver bathtub, I climbed into the comfy bed and relaxed to the sound of the waves washing the beach outside. Pure heaven!

Room Tip: Treat yourself to a room on the beach side!

Can't remember the room number that I stayed in. But perhaps my pictures would describe better.

Very cozy hotel with a very hospitable and polite French owner. Hotel is located nicely where restaurants and beach are at a walking distance.

Having just stayed in the Queen Hortense room on the front corner of the second floor I cannot speak highly enough of this small gem of a hotel - a superb mix of a fabulously grand villa with the creature comforts of home. Beautifully decorated with many original furnishings this is the ideal mix of a traditional building with a comfortable contemporary feel. Pair this with a very warm and genuine welcome and you have an intoxicating mix that is the best of a boutique hotel. The comments elsewhere regarding the steps are valid, but (so long as you are able) this should not put you off enjoying this excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Obviously a room with a beach view across the bay to St Malo

This is such a pleasant place that I'm pleased to provide a current review that echoes the many favorable past reviews that helped me choose it. We spent two nights in a beach/bay view room in July, 2012. It's a charming place to stay. Although our bathroom was entirely new and modern, the hotel is feels very much like the kind of spic and span, small resort hotel that James Bond might have used for a weekend love nest. The doors have their knobs in the center, there are old-style wood and glass french doors overlooking the bay, in the breakfast room, and the two owners look like young nobles sharing their little chateau with family friends. Everything is in perfectly cared-for, shiny-clean condition-there is nothing rustic or out-of-date about Reine Hortense. The vast tile stove (decorative) in the main lounge is a treat to look at.

I have to admit there was no traditional bidet in our huge, new bathroom-that left more room for us! But we did have to take a seated tub shower with a completely modern "telephone" sprayer in one hand. That was not my favorite part of visiting France back in the 80s. There is no elevator, and this mansion is down a long flight of (good) stone steps, halfway down the hill to the beach. Only seagulls woke us in the morning, but this town can get crowded in August.

Breakfast was simple, but delicious, including sliced cheeses and meats and boiled eggs. It's an extra charge. Parking was free, and right across the street. They have several spaces in a lot, with fold-up stanchions to repel other cars until you twist a key and allow your space's barrier to fall flat om the pavement. By American standards, our deluxe double room was a little small, but it came with a fireplace and two exposures for a breeze. By European standards, it was not a small room.

We got good advice on restaurants and touring from the staff. Our local objectives (by rental car) were Mont St. Michel and St. Malo, to which we added Dinan (a swell medieval town), Dol de Bretagne and an out-of-the way private garden (very worth the narrow but paved road drive) called La Ballue. I think there are more gardens in Brittany than in the Loire Valley.

We stayed in Dinard because St. Malo seemed too crowded and busy, which turned out to be a good guess. However, this coast is nothing like the "fashionable" Southern coast of France. Dinard has long been a favorite English vacation spot. The English Channel is a little cold for swimming, but we saw swimmers every day. And we got a great, fresh-baked Belgian Waffle on the "boardwalk" near Reine Hortense.
