“Close to the train 1km walk to the old town”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Fair value for the price.

What made this hotel nice for us was the ability to get off the train, drop off the luggage at the room and then walk back and forth to the Old Town before getting back on the train a few days later.

Staying in the Old Town is nice as well, and some will find the walk a bit tiring, but we probably saved enough doing things this way to 'earn' some nice dinners and we still spent all day in the Old Town and on the beach.

Stayed September 2011, travelled with family

Reviewed 25 August 2012

I stayed here for several days in August 2012.
The hotel is very convenient for the train station, so it's good if you are coming from Paris by TGV.
It is about 20 minutes by foot from the old part of town, but there are two buses (routes C1 and C2) that leave from the train station side of the road and take you there for €1.25.
The hotel is quite new and the room was very large. There was good, free wifi and free bottle of water, but no safe in the room. I think overall the price is a little high considering the hotel is away from the centre.

Room Tip: The area in front of the hotel looks like it will be a building site for the next couple of years so...

We overnighted here before catching the 10:30am ferry to Portsmouth. The port is a five minute, easy drive away. As a previous reviewer remarked, the hotel seems to be brand new and our room was very comfortable with just about all the mod cons. We had a number of questions to ask about St Malo, taxis (it's a bit of a schlep into the centre, cabs cost around €7), WiFi codes and the rest, and Kevin on the front desk answered them all with patience and great good humour. Breakfast, from the self service buffet, was good, and unusually for France (in our experience), the coffee was excellent.

I've stayed here twice, first time with a car and second time via the train. The location was handy for both. The vacant lot in front of the hotel doubles as a car park with no fees. The hotel is across the road from the train station. It's about 1km to walk to the walled town. The hotel looks brand new and the rooms are spotless.The free wifi worked well in my rooms. The staff were efficient and the breakfast pretty decent. The artwork in the public areas were a nice touch. Overall it did everything on the tin. A good ambassador for Best Western hotels.

We had been upgraded automatically and the room was perfect even with sound through in the bathroom. A secure garage is available at cost (about 10€) which is good as the area in front of the hotel is a building site at the moment. Very convenient for the station (2mn walk) and a short stroll from St Malo intra muros (the interesting and lively centre of this historical town). Service was good. We didn't have breakfast as we thought the baker's opposite the station was better value offering hot & cold drinks and beautiful croissants, etc...
