“Poor mattress - you pay big bucks for the view and location, nothing else really”
Reviewed July 23, 2009

This is my first time leaving comments on such a web site... and I do it because I do not want other people to have another bad experience with that hotel.
For the money paid (84EUR for a double room + 8.50EUR/pers. for the breakfast), I remained very unsatisfied: I could not sleep well because of a very poor mattress (it had probably been used for over 15-20 years; the worse experience I have had for several years) and the breakfast was very limited... I had to ask for more bread and for a fruit... they reluctantly gave me a small banana and a yogurt... I wanted some milk... I never saw the waitress again, so I had to do without.
Add to this critique the fact that:
1. They advertise on the web site a Wi-Fi access (http://www.hotelpointedugrouin.com/frMer.php); well, the receptionist told me that Wi-Fi was not installed and had never been... seems like misleading advertising, doesn't it?
2. The room and bathroom were very small; the bathroom was so badly conceived that after taking your shower, you almost fell onto the water-closet and did not have enough space and hangers to hang your towels.

This was a last minute reservation so did not do much investigation prior to booking, other than TripAdvisor reviews (which is why I am writing). This was a great spot for enjoying the views of the sea and getting distance from the villages of Concale and St. Malo. The hostess was extremely friendly and helpful. She also spoke English beautifully -- a nice treat! We stayed in a mid-size room -- I think all have views of the sea. We did not eat in the restaurant (are appetites did not arrive until after they were done serving, about 9pm) but it smelled fantastic and it was full of what appeared to be local people. Good sign!
For exercise enthusiasts, it is located along a wonderful coastal trail. We woke in the morning and went for an exhilarating jog along coast -- great way to start the day.
If you are looking for lots of nightlife, don't go here to find it. If you want a beautiful & quaint location on the sea, this is a great choice.

A nice hotel on a beautiful spot allmost surrounded by sea. Entrance with lots of shining bras, deep blue carpets. We had a perfect room with lits of purple and pink, deep red thick carpet going on in the batroom and the toilet. We chosse this hotel for it's location, from the room you can see the Mont Saint Michel which must be about 35 kilometres away, and it wasn't even a very clear day. Offcourse we will not forget teh walk around Point-du-Groin. There is a good beach "Port Mer" which is a 10 minute walk from this hotel. The breakfast was real French (basic) and served in the back of the big restaurant, it would have been nicer to sit by the windows and have breakfast with a spectacular view.

  • Liked — The location.
  • Disliked — The breakfast in the back of the empty restaurant
