Booked ahead through the hotel site and received breakfast included in a sea view room. It is the one shown in their brochure, with a nice little balcony overlooking the sea and glimpses of the beach. Room was very good, comfortable bed with coffee maker but would highly recommend the sea view if available. Breakfast was excellent with a great...

Recently stayed in this hotel at start of December. We were due to stay at the Hotel De Cite but due to a technical issue we were switched to this hotel. We had booked a superior room at the other hotel with sea view and this was honoured at HDFeC. We were given a third floor room with a splendid...

The hotel is very centrally placed in the old town of St Malo - only down side for anyone unsure of foot is the heavily cobbled streets surrounding it. I chose the 'wrong' week to go there, early December when the Xmas market is 'ready but not open' and the hotel is quiet - I seemed to be the only...

Some of the other reviews may have mixed opinions, but I think I made good choice. The staff were friendly and welcoming at the reception desk and at breakfast and they spoke English when I got stuck :-). The room was clean, warm and comfortable, I slept very well and there was good-sized shower in the en-suite. The hotel is...

Ideally situated near the old town. Be careful, all the rooms do not have a sea viewing. Depending on the price. We get a room over the patio, with the home of Chateaubriand just in front of. Were there to go on his grave too (at low tide). Fantastic

Very disappointed with this hotel. Not much effort made to make you feel welcome. Advert stated 'most if our rooms have a sea view' surprise surprise, no sea view. Bedside lamps not working. Reported to reception. Only fixed one. Tried to call room service as the pamphlet on table said 'dial zero for reception' Couldn't find the phone in the...

It's a shame when one's impressions are spoiled on arrival. I booked, and had evidence of, a twin-bedded room but was shown to a room with only a double bed. It then took a Mexican Stand-Off with the receptionist to obtain the required accommodation, leaving an unpleasant initial perception. Also, when I initially checked my credit card account (no receipt...

This hotel is perfectly situated beside the old city walls, with views over the beach to the old fort, and central for eateries and shopping. We booked a superior room with sea view and were not disappointed with the view. The room was sufficiently large and the bed comfortable, with a desk and comfortable arm chair. The bathroom was fine,...

Chateaubriand is a beautiful hotel located steps from the beach and ramparts. Step outside and you are immersed in Chateaubriand Square with all the lovely cafes. The tourist information office is close just outside the walls. Parking was a bit of a challenge, but we otherwise had a great stay. There was a very nice girl at the desk.

the hotel is ok but the room could be more comfortable. there is no air conditioning in room so you have open the window to get air. however we had a room facing the ramparts so there are people constantly walking along and and able to look in the room. the bed and pillows are too soft. overall the hotel...

“Ask for seaview room.”

“If you are disabled, be wary of the bathroom - beautifully appointed, very efficient but you do have to stand in the bath to shower and I should have taken my bathmat. I did enjoy one bath but experiencing the difficulty in getting out of it, I din't risk it again. I could have been 'marooned' until the next daily maid attendance. I should also have taken my 'kettle' - didn't think about the lack of room facility beforehand. All in all though - good location for the old town.. ”
