“No better place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

We would never stay anywhere else. The staff are so welcoming and helpful. We love the walk along the Grand Plage to the intro muros, when we feel we've earned our coffee. They serve a lovely glass of champagne in the lounge, which is beautifully decorated and so relaxing.

We stayed here in March 2013, after a very large snowstorm. From the moment we stepped through the doors, the reception was wonderful, attentive and helpful!!! The hotel is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Our room was elegantly decorated, spacious and impeccably clean. We had called ahead to let them know we were traveling with our 18-month old and were surprised to find a clean and comfortable baby bed, bath seat and bottle warmer already in the room! I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back!!!! THANK YOU!!!

I booked this hotel after reading the reviews - itseems to good to be true!
As a treat last year we had booked a 5***** hotel in Barcelona but left a little dissapointed mainly because of the cost against staff attitude... so we were openminded this year.

Its all true - the staff were amazing!!! the location fantastic- rooms were imaculate!!

we arrived hoping for the best - and we left with beaming smiles and our only dissappointment was saying goodbye!!

Gr4eat value - great staff- great location - GREAT!!

Room Tip: stayed in seaview with balcony - perfect!!

We stayed here in July 2012; I can honestly say I can hardly find a fault with this hotel. It is approximately a 30 minute brisk walk along the prominarde from the hotel to the walled city. La Villefromoy feels more like a grand manor house than a small hotel!
Without a doubt, the nicest part of the hotel is the lounge area; with it's grand decor and furniture, it's such a nice place to sit, relax, and read, after a day of exploring St Malo. The staff couldn't be more helpful, the moment we stepped through the door we felt welcomed by the distinctly Breton staff.
The buffet breakfast offers a wide variety of pain o'chocholats, croissants, breads, hams and cheeses, along with a hot mini crepe served on a side dish! In addition there is some homemade sweet breakfast choices.
Our room was of a good standard; there were twin beds, flat screen TV, reletavely modern en suite and a modern safe. Our room was in the steep piched eves of the hotel.
To conclude, la Villefromoy lives up to its 4 star standards in every way; it's got great food, it's in a good location, the staff are extremely pleasant.

This is a beautiful small hotel that was, for us an absolute delight to experience. The rooms were a good size and were clean, comfortable and modern. Breakfast was a real gem with the added bonus of apple crepes for all guests, at each breakfast time. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our only downside was the distance to the main local attraction - the old city - just a bit too far for us. Initially the walk via the most interesting promenade - took us 75 minutes. Yes we are slow and with walking difficulties. By the end of our stay we had the walk down to 45 minutes each way. For those of younger years and with good legs - it would be a shorter journey. Whatever you do you must access the "old city" via the very wide promenade. This is a great entertainment. To watch residents and visitors of all ages use the grand walk for all forms of recreation and access to the beach and water is a marvelous experience. There is an abundance of seating that can be used to rest and watch the very interesting, passing parade.
There is an abundance of restaurants in the area that give a wide choice of dining styles.
Visiting Saint Malo and staying at the La Villefromoy hotel is a "must" for anyone contemplating a visit to Brittany.

Although slightly difficult to find (satnav no help!), we found this dog friendly hotel to be a lovely haven of peace. The bedroom was comfortable, quiet and clean and had it not been raining, we would have sat on the balcony with a glass of wine. Lovely sitting room with bar to relax in with a mix of modern and old furniture and an old wooden floor. Friendly staff, but don't take their advice on where to eat - they recommended a rather pretentious restaurant on the sea front with very slow service, tiny portions and expensive! Would definitely stay at La Villefromoy again as it is so convenient for catching an early ferry. Secure parking inside the property - almost too secure as had to get a member of staff to unlock the gate early in the morning to catch our ferry on time. Be aware that it is a good 45 minutes walk to get into the old part of town, but if you have a dog, it is a better place to stay as it is a couple of minutes away from a lovely long beach..

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the seafront with a balcony in summer.
