The lead photo is entirely misleading. It is of an apartment block opposite the hotel.

I knew we'd messed up at the front door and it only got worse.

It took us just 15 minutes to find somewhere else and we'll see over time how long the mental scars remain.

Family room directly above the outside bar sitting area = smokey. The one way street was noisy and the immediate area is a bit sketchy with some quirky locals around.

Cardboard thin walls, leather throws, the feeling that if there were a fire that you would be jumping out of the window to certain broken legs or possible death.

We once stayed in a hostel that was a former prison in Australia. That was more homely.
We could not bring ourselves to stay at the Alpha Ocean.

This is no judgement on the staff whatsoever. This is purely an accommodation thing. If I wanted to stay in the 1950s or 1960s then I'd borrow Doc Brown's DeLorean and check it out. We ended up in a 2010s generic global hotel and were quite happy.

Stayed as most people seem to overnight on the way back to the UK. The picture you show is of the apartment block opposite! Old fashioned hotel, nicely redecorated downstairs but oh dear! The room was tiny, cramped and in desperate need of a refurb. Ancient scuffed red leatherette curtains and throw which were falling to bits. The best thing was the bedding was spotless! If refurbished the room would make an adequate single. Lots of noise from other rooms and outside. Would I stay there again? No.

Room tip: Ask to see the room before paying!

Stayed here the night before an early ferry crossing to Blighty.
Very helpful staff, nice, if small, room. Good bar next door overlooking the beach and promenade.
Extremely reasonable cost and a simple continental breakfast.
I would stay there again.

Room tip: No lift so ask about a lower floor if you have difficulties.

Right next to the beach. Old French style hotel, with restaurant next door so convenient.
Needs a bit of updating in the bedroom, curtains and covers, maybe new carpet. But lovely family rooms. We had room 419 on first floor. No sea views.
Every thing was clean, beds comfy.

Room tip: Corridor on first floor was quiet

Booked purely due to convenience for the port. Was pleasantly surprised at how nice St Malo was in general.

Hotel was clean and efficient. Reception went the extra mile - we'd booked a triple room which on tripadvisor booking site was listed as three beds. On arrival we were informed it was a double and a single. Not what we required but they helpfully gave us a twin room and a single room at no extra cost - great service.

Biggest negative. We were there a Sat night and from midnight to 3am the local youths were effectively partying on the beach, yelling, shouting, etc, etc. This meant very little sleep and for this reason alone we will not return - not a fault of the hotel but of the town and society itself!
