“Good value for a stay in Saint Malo”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2010

The beds were comfortable and we slept well, but it's better if you ask for a room that faces not the main street of the hotel, it's a bit noisy there.

The hotel is about 5 minutes walking from the beach of Saint Malo (Paramé) and about 20 minutes walking from the citadel, were the main shops and restaurants are. The hotel is in a residential area and walking back from the citadel by night doesn't make you nervous, even though after 9pm you won't find anyone on the street.

Breakfast is abundant enough (though it's not a buffet) and it's possible to park the car for free in the street. The reception is closed at 10pm and a code is provided to get in by the back door after that hour.

Was in Brittany and stumbled upon this hotel for an overnight stay in St. Malo. With my limited French the hosts made the booking very easy for us on the phone and were very welcoming upon our arrival recommending and excellent traditional French restaurant to eat that night. Rooms are clean, modern and spacious and free WIFI is provided for all guests. Perfect for one or two night and one of the most reasonably priced hotel in St. Malo. We have room 16 on the first floor and room was perfect. No complaints and recommended. 2 k from town or € 8 taxi ride home. Walk to town is along the coast so quiet scenic.

A very nice 2 stars hotel. As already mentioned in other reviews, the owners are very nice and friendly people. We even got to get an early breakfast as we were due to catch an early ferry. The owner gave us good tips for eating out and the drive to St Malo is done in a few minutes. The rooms were very clean. And parking is not an issue either. Definitely an hotel to recommend.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2009

I stayed with friends at this hotel for 2 nights. When I made reservations on the phone I was told that the price of 2 rooms was of 60 euro each. When we arrived one room was 70 euro instead. The reason being it was a "king" size bed. In fact, the double has a very small bed and the "king" is like a double in the USA. The owner was very nasty when discussing this issue and I ended up having to pay his new price. I did not want to ruin my vacation for 10 euros. The rooms were very small and the lights for reading in bed were very high up, so one can not read in bed without disturbing their bed mate. For breakfast you will get as many pieces of bread as there are guests: everything seems carefully counted: at about 7 euros it is not convenient. This hotel was a very bad experience for all of us.

This hotel is part of a chain called Brit Hotels. As a physical space in many ways I would have said it was rather ordinary--modern, a mile from central St. Malo. It was clean and efficient and the rooms were small but everything worked well. The one feature I thought made it extraordinary were the managers. They were incredibly sweet and kind and went out of their way to make sure our stay was positive. I can't say enough good about their friendly hospitality. One example, we needed a place to store our bags for the day as we were leaving and they let us keep them in their own apartment til the late afternoon so we wouldn't be inconvenienced. This was absolutely above and beyond the call of duty. We left feeling that the hotel was extremely charming-- because the people working there were so kind to us!!

  • Liked — The friendly staff!!!
  • Disliked — The modern and not particularly special building.
