                In spite of announced as a non smoking room, I was sure that It was not true, The first night I could not stand the cigarrete smell all over the room.

              • Group of friends

                Excellent location in a very beautiful city. Nice shops, nice beach, nice hotel in the middle of the fortified city.

                Parking around the hotel cost a minimum of 6eur per day. In low season, there are free parking spots on the streets outside of the fortified city ~500m from the hotel.

                The triple room was spacious and the staff were excellent.

                The location of the hotel was not too my liking, too busy and always full of people, the room was basic and there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room which are now standard for most hotels of all grades.

                Courteous welcpme and helpful advice about possible late-evening parking Intra Muros / St. Malo. Good efficient breakfast.

              • Group of friends

                The location is perfect, inside the Intra Muros and on the Place Chateaubriand. Staff were extremely cheerful and spoke far better English that we spoke French. They happily accommodated our bikes in a secure area of the hotel. The continental breakfast was the best of the trip. There were several bars and TVs were set up in the outdoor ones (could be good or bad depending on your taste for the beautiful game!).

                Obviously, given the location, rather pricey compared to other bookings on our trip. Likewise the breakfast was expensive at 9 euro, but see above. I've no idead where you would park a car, but we were awheel, so no probs.

                Hotel staff extremely friendly and helpful.

                Too noisy at night - but that was on the street, not much the hotel could do about it.

                Excellent location, with views of city ramparts & dining square. Supermarket (Carrefour) is hidden down some stairs on the street behind the hotel (Rue Sainte Barb) - difficult to find, however it's perfect for cheaper snacks & food souvenirs!

                I enjoyed the location, the fact that there was a left luggage place and in particular the person on the desk on the Saturday we arrived - she was charming and helpful

                The person on the desk on the Sunday we left was not charming.

                It has old-fashioned charm & location is fantastic. a perfect getaway for a weekend from uk.

                It had a small wardrobe-sized (Max 300 kg) lift that would seriously limit who could stay.

                Clean, comfortable and well-located. Staff were initially a little reserved but became friendlier. My only suggestion to improve the family room would be to have a dividing curtain between the double bed part and the rest of the room.

                Excellent location, just a few minutes walk to town, hence bars, cafes and restaurnts very nearby. Free parking in the carpark over the road. Fantastic breaksfast, well worth the money and had a super choice of quality foods. We loved chinon, and the hotel suited us just fine. We would recommend the hotel to others, but would suggest paying more for a larger room in the main building if you are staying for longer than one night.

                Our room was upstairs in the 'garden' outbuilding. It was small, although very clean. Just one tiny cupboard and no shelves, so unpacking any clothes was difficult. Staircase to the rooms was a little dirty, and had some cigarette butts (which we ended up moving ourselves), the cleaning staff should have taken care of that. Not a major complaint, but a quick sweep of the stairs every day should be on the cleaning list.

                It was a perfect location for a one-night stay. It was dead center in the middle of the action, but the rooms were quiet. Really perfect spot.

                The rooms could not have been smaller, so a longer stay here would not be very comfortable. I would give it a qualified recommenation.
