“Fair value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

I feel a bit mean giving 3 stars but a few tweaks would improve it. As previous reviewers have said location is a bit of an issue with 15-20 mins walking time into town along a not particularly attractive road.
The staff are very friendly and the hotel is clean and modern. The rooms are simple and of good size but could do with a room safe as there are no drawers or cupboards to hide things from view. I think they should consider free or reduced charge parking as although on street is viable I prefer a safer environment with a car laden for a trip to the UK.

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

Had a very clean and modern room but a tad small. Bathroom was great and even had a towel warmer. Linens were high quality. Good TV channel choices. Free WIFI was a huge plus.
Can pay extra for a breakfast buffet.
Extremely professional staff was very helpful with local information. Did not use their pay parking but parked free in empty lot nearby(could see car from our room).
Location is across from train station. A manageable walk into town-about 15 minutes.

Chose it for the location (across the street from the Gare St-Malo) and price. The staff were very friendly and professional from check-in to check out.Took time to recommend different places and restaurants to try. Bed was very comfortable and the room was clean and bright. Had some issues with the wireless access to the internet. Ended up leaving an item in the room (after triple checking), and the staff were pro-active in emailing us to let us know that we left the item even before we realized we had! Very rare indeed! A great experience and a great value. Highly recommended.

Stayed here as part of a tour. Nice hotel clean rooms. The breakfast buffet was very nice, good selection of breads and cheeses. They had an expresso machine at breakfast which was great as most of the coffee on our tour was very weak.

It was the day they forecast much trouble crossing the Channel and we were booked in so we would have an early start back to Portsmouth. Check in was very efficient with a nice welcome from the receptionist. We were given very clear directions for the room and clearly told about breakfast should we want to take it. Our room was very good, clean and very comfortable. All services were available. The bathroom/shower was lovely and very well kept. Small down side were the bed lights which did not do justice to the room We moved a light to beside the bed in order that we could see. We were proper people we put it back in the morning! All in all a good stay

My family was forced to find a hotel quickly when our Saturday ferry from Jersey was cancelled and we had to leave on Friday instead.

A quick search online showed us that not much was available in town, and particularly not for a family of five. The ladies working the Front Desk at the Best Western told me what was possible, and didn't promise that we would be able to have two rooms together. However, when we arrived, they had indeed worked that out so that we could have two rooms next door to each other.

The hotel was very basic by international standards, but clean and with the amenities I've come to expect, like a kettle and a hair dryer. The modern furnishings were new, though everything seemed pretty pre-fab.

Not much character, but a very respectable and comfortable place.

Plus, you get a discount if you call and book with your credit card.

We were in in July and the hotel is very nice. The comfort level is very good. the staff is helpful and advise on the best restaurants and even make the reservations. Perfect 3 star hotel. The only potential downside being the location. It is a good 15 minutes walk along the docks to the historic centre. Unfortunately, price wise one can find something similar within the walls of the historic centre. This was our only lament
