We stayed in this hotel during an overnight visit to St Malo. We found the location of this hotel to be very convenient as it was a short walk to the beach and less than ten minutes walk to the historic walled city. There was also free parking close to the hotel. We stayed in a large double room, I should point out that 'large' in this case means when compared to other rooms in this hotel. This was the description for booking purposes. The room was very clean bed was very comfortable and we had a peaceful nights sleep. The room had 2 chairs and a desk area however it did not have a wardrobe, there were coat hooks on the wall and some plastic hangers suspended on metal rods from the ceiling - I wasn't sure whether the purpose of these was decorative, functional or both! The bathroom was a very good size with a shower, toilet and wash basin. There was no shower enclosure so the floor and walls are fully tiled but we found the water did not drain away thoroughly leaving a wet floor and you needed to ensure that the towels were on the radiator so they don't get wet when the shower is in use. There was a good choice of breakfast foods including a tropical fruit salad, freshly cooked crepes, cereals, juice, yogurt, ham, cheese, toast, cake, mini croissants, pain au raisin and pain au chocolat.
St Malo is a great place to explore, we have visited this area a number of times, the Rance Estuary is beautiful, if you are staying a few days you can get the ferry over to Dinard or go up the river Rance to Dinan. Within the walls of St Malo you will find restaurants and shops, you can walk along the ramparts and enjoy looking out to sea. While in St Malo you should ensure that you eat in a Creperie and sample the savoury galettes (buckwheat pancakes), a sweet crepe to follow all washed down with local Breton cider which you drink from pottery cups.
If you are staying for 1 or 2 nights this hotel could be a good choice, if you plan to stay in St Malo for longer or like to unpack your cases then it may not be the best choice for you.
