We have stayed in this hotel numerous times over the past ten years as it is always a good stop over via our home in Guernsey.

The hotel has had quite a facelift over the past couple of years with a new lift installed to guests up to the new rooms. Our running joke, because the elevator was made by the company Shindler, was of course this was Shindlers lift. Sorry. We had room 354, which overlooks the sea and seawall - but occupies the entire corner of the hotel with three huge windows.

There is a lovely new bathroom with a separate loo - (strangely without a handbasin however in the loo, which would have been better)

The finish is not up to scratch though with quite a few bits missing from edges of painting etc, but this dosen't really matter overall as everything else is great.

The beds are really old fashioned, which looks a bit out of place with new fixtures like the flat screen TV - but this is all part of the charm.

DO have breakfast. It is Eleven euros each per day - same price for a couple of years - but well worth it. Plenty to eat - usual continental fare but with pizazz.

DO take tea in the conservatory area, listen to Alphonso the forgotten parakeet who trills like there is no tomorrow.

DO eat out at Lion D'or very good food - especially the chicken.

DO get parking with the sister hotel Hotel de la Cite, otherwise you will be driving round and round trying to find a place to park, which is not easy. This is about 6 euros per day, well worth it.

We enjoyed four days here, and whilst not the cheapest of places, it is, in our opinion the nicest.

Front of house staff very friendly upon arrival and the twin room was pleasant with a view over the square - although the pipes in the room made a mysterios knocking sound from 0400 which was conducive to restful night. We had cycled to this place in the rain and arrived wet and cold. The staff organised a safe storage for our bikes. We ate our evening meal in the hotel restaurant which was average and the waiters had a very superior attitude boardering on rude. Free internet at the front desk for those without wifi options which was a bonus. On checking out I asked the front desk girl if I could print off a booking confirmation - it proved to be a very difficult request - again quite abrupt and rude. Overall not a bad place to stay and the staff who were helpful could not have been more so.

Room Tip: Ask about knocking pipes in front upper rooms

We stayed for one night, July 14th, Bastille Day. It is located in the walled city near one of the archways. We enjoyed fireworks from the room. A grand old building, full of character and charm. Desk staff was pleasant and helpful. Breakfast offered in the grand room adjacent was an option and well worth the 11 euros.

Room Tip: We asked for a higher room with a view of the water. Worth the added cost.

Wonderful old hotel. Exteriors are charming, so the public areas such reception and breakfast lounge. Rooms are big. Doubble beds are small. Ask for new wing rooms.
They were so kind to change our room with beautiful views to the square and castle.
Not very kind staff of restaurant (typical french attitude with a stick in the ---). Anyway it's highly recommeded.

We have been to St Malo many times, staying in various hotels. This time we really wanted a sea view so chose the Hotel France et Chateaubriand. The rates were favourable, the room modern although the bed linen quite old and musty however the fantastic view of the beach and Fort National more than compensated. Would certainly recommend the rooms however would suggest going elsewhere for breakfast. Although the choice was adequate the service was appalling for all 4 mornings of our stay. Tables were never cleared, so impossible to find anywhere to sit, one morning we laid our own table, we had to share spoons as no clean ones available and all in all a very poor service for the €11 charge. very disappointing. So, nice hotel but let down by the service at breakfast.

Room Tip: The sea views are well worth the extra
