“Tranquil setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June. We were on a driving holiday around the coast and booked here for one night. It was easy to find and in a nice quiet area away from all the hustle and bustle of the promenade. We had booked prior to have dinner in the restaurant. This was a great move and we were not dissapointed. The restuarant is a gastronomic experience extremely well presented and excellent food and beverage. It was good to see the promonade but even better to get back to our peaceful room at this lovely hotel. Michelle was very helpful and spoke excellent english if required. Wish we could have stayed longer. Breakfast very good lovely outlook onto garden and sea glimpse. Tres Bon!!!

Room Tip: Try to get a seaview room if available.

We found this hotel on the net; it looked good but the reality was far better. The rooms (2 couples) were spacious, comfortable with new bathrooms and comfortable beds, and lovely views in the evenings and mornings. The owner (Michelle) and her staff were friendly and very helpful, with recommendations for restaurants and wth arranging transport. The hotel - with 5 rooms - makes the patrons feel like guests in the owner's home. We could not recommend it too highly.

The restaurant, in which we dined twice, has the services of a Michelin 3-star trained chef and served excellent meals, at a price point much lower than in Paris or London. Michelle proved an excellent sommelier with recommendations which were both new to us and of outstanding quality. Breakfast was delicious.

We would (and will) recommend this hotel to friends as well as readers.

Room Tip: The rooms on the ocean side have lovely views with Mont St Michel floating on the horizon as a welco...

We were meant to stay in st Malo but were warned there was a book festival over the weekend. We therefore looked a bit further and found this hotel which looked very interesting.
We arrived and were very informally welcomed, no reception desk, just the lady of the house. all staff offered help immediately with luggage.
The room was very nice, ideal for a very quiet stay. The bathroom was beautiful, with thick bathrobes. The slight problem was there was no door to go to the bathroom (fine) so no door to the toilet (not so fine)
The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was really nice and hot food was offered but declined.
The second highlight of the stay was the restaurant. We ate outside and add one of the most superb dinner ever. The service was very good and very relaxed, the staff having time for you.
We left really sad not to be able to stay longer.

Room Tip: only 5 rooms so hurry up...

We have just spent a wonderful long weekend here and have only good things to say about it. The place is very well kept, clean, well furnished and the rooms are specious. It has lots of character and charm. We were looked after very well and had wonderful breakfasts, with home made jams and yogurts and perfect "oeufs a la coque". You are also only a 5 minute walk away from the wonderful harbour of Cancale with all of it's lovely restaurants.

La Maison de la Marine is a beautiful, well cared house in the center of Cancal.
We had an original, spacious and clean room with a view to Mt. Saint Michel.
The hostess Michèle and her team made us feel very much at home at Hotel la Marine.
The restaurant is excellent: we had gourmet-food with superbe wines at reasonable prices.
We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to come back next summer!
