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 spent three nights at the hotel. Our room was very comfortable and unusually for a French hotel we had a mini bar and tea/ coffee making facilities. However there was no milk and only a two sachets of instant coffee were provided each day. The shower room was good but slightly dated. The hotel had a good location right on the promenade and a 20 minute walk to the old town. Le Cap Horn restaurant was excellent as was the beach bar restaurant la Terrace but we found the bar upstairs to lack atmosphere and style.
The swimming pool was heated salt water and was a nice temperature. It was relatively quiet and a decent size. There was a small unisex changing area (some cubicles) beside the pool which was not quite what we were expecting. We also had to find our own towels in a cupboard in the corridor and were treated with disinterest by the pool attendant. When swimming you also have to wear blue and white caps - these are provided in the hotel rooms and it was fortunate that we had brought them down to the pool. We did not use the spa.
When we left we were surprised to have been charged for breakfast as we had booked room only and had not eaten in the mornings. The hotel did, however, refund our money when we pointed this out. I would advise anyone planning a stay to check their bill carefully.

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 hotel was clean and tidy and the only verry minor fault that I could find was that the shower being above the bath could have done with either a shower screen or a shower curtain to stop the floor getting wet during showering. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone, it was good vallue for money also.

Beautiful retreat from the business of the city. Peaceful grounds surrounding the Chateau. Excellent continental breakfast. Easy to get to other popular destinations from here. Our honeymoon was enchanting in a very romantic country and destination point at Saint Malo.

We only stayed here overnight before a ferry crossing but this one night experience has inspired us to return and spend some time in St. Malo.
The family room is small but well laid out and very comfortable. The hotel has a quiet, luxurious feel. We were late arriving and got lost finding the hotel in the dark. We rang the hotel and they came and met us and we followed them!! Superb customer service.
Lovely breakfast in a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Well positioned for small local shops and 1 mile from the old town.
Would recommend highly.
