“In its Class Cannot be Faulted”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Does what it says on the tin!

The Ibis is part of the Accor Group, we use this particular one before and after the St Malo to Jersey Ferry.

It has always been cheap and clean, but now has undergone some sort of refurb, chiefly evident from the now standard crisp white bedding on a comfortable bed.

The whole hotel benefits from free wifi and the staff are friendly welcoming helpful and at the very least bilingual.

The Restaurant

I like this place, a little too well light perhaps but a minor point. The food is actually good and well presented. They even have a vegetarian dish in the form of a risotto which is not to be sneezed at.

Other choices are from a standard menu, which appears to change only when it gets dog eared and they think of something else, not often. You get steak, lamb,fish and a fixed price plat de jour.

Staff are friendly, efficient and very safety conscious, on my last visit I was sternly lectured and advised not to eat a very obvious a foot long wooden kebab stick protruding from a bun and burger. This consisting of two large potato Rosti and about eight ounces of almost raw mince, tasty and my choice.

Cidre comes in a jug, no one bats an eyelid if you drink a whole bottle of wine on your own, whilst surfing the net on your ipad. Chinon even comes slightly cool.


It's good and only ten minutes from the ferry, on the main road and with plenty of parking.

Stayed three nights and enjoyed it. Pleasant and efficient welcome and departure. Comfortable, new-type bedding. Free wifi which works. Excellent Ibis breakfast in pleasant dining area. Food at dinner was perfectly adequate and the service prompt. Staff wear smart uniforms which is nice. Plenty of free parking. No lift, which might be a problem for some. Would certainly stay again--very convenient for St Malo which is well worth exploring and better than Dinard, in my view.

This Ibis is a good, comfortable, basic hotel. The beds were extremely comfy although the rooms are very small. Nice clean bathroom with big shower, free wifi and I hear a perfectly acceptable restaurant. This place just does what an Ibis hotel is meant to do and is very convenient for those travelling to and from St Malo. 5 mins to ferry.
