Two day stay, re-visiting this hotel & the buzz of St Malo
Ideal location for short stay--especially if no car. The hotel is a focus of activity within the walls. All the attractions are just outside the hotel door.and within walking distance.
Access to the hotel by car is difficult (streets are pedestrianised) & there is little or no parking by the hotel.& no free parking between 9.00am-8.00pm
Parking in general is a nightmare in St Malo with NO free daytime parking close to the walls (Nearest free parking to the hotel is 3-400yds away, if lucky) All car parks are extremely busy during peak season.

We enjoyed our recent short stay at the Best Western Balmoral Hotel in Saint-Malo. The bedroom furnishings and en-suite facilities were excellent.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and spoke very good English.

This is an ok basic hotel, near the old (and new) station. Interior is all a bit tired but staff are very welcoming and friendly. The 3 opening windows and good blinds were appreciated, but the whole of our room was carpeted - right up to and around the toilet bowl in the en suite bathroom, with no pedestal mat; there was only one bedside cabinet for the double bed (we used the one chair to put things on); there was only one drinking tumbler; the 2 small sachets of showergel were not replaced after the first night. All of this was disappointing and the main reason why I would not recommend this hotel.

An overnight stay before the ferry back to the UK. This is the second time we have stayed here and will do again. The room was clean and comfortable with separate bathroom and toilet. It overlooked the garden in the rear section of the hotel which is in two blocks; one front and one rear. There are no tea making facilities but the TV can get BBC channels. A secure underground car park is very useful, at a cost 15 euro, with lifts to all floors. Vehicle access to the car park is at the rear of the hotel and you need to obtain a swipe card at Reception first. Street car parking is possible if you arrive late in the day but during working hours the streets are full since the beech is just across the road. Bar lounge and TV are available near reception, as is the breakfast room. A number of resautrants are just along the street.

Stayed for one night before catching the ferry, in a double room with an extra bed for our 7 year old son. We had requested secure parking but luckily found a roadside space available, which saved us the cost of the hotel's secure car park (convenient but an additional 14 Euros per night). Staff were very welcoming and we were shown to our room by one of the friendly reception team, which was a nice personal touch. We had a lovely room with tasteful decor, a partial sea view, comfy beds and luxurious ensuite shower room. They had even left two small packs of sweets out next to the coffee-making facilities, which our son thought was brilliant! We all enjoyed the use of the roof level indoor pool, with its massage jets and jacuzzi-type corner, which was very welcome after a long drive. We had an early start the following morning so breakfast wasn't possible for us, but this sounded quite pricey so not sure we would have eaten at the hotel anyway. All in all, a lovely, but far too short-lived, experience!
This is an excellent hotel. The staff are very friendly and the room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfy. The shower cubicle actually had a soapdish - something we've found to be a rarety on our travels. The only problem is parking in the vicinity. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon about 3 p.m. and I think lots of local people were in St Malo for the beach at the time we arrived as all the nearby parking spaces were full and we had to park about half a mile away. In the evening we were able to move the car closer to the hotel. We were only in St Malo for one night as we had spent most of our time in France in the Dordogne. This hotel is very convenient for the ferry terminal and was a pleasant place to spend the last night of our holiday, being an easy walk to all the attractions of the old town.
