Its location... Room Size
A Very good location. Excellent views. Good linguistic skills of staff. The building is getting tired, time for a review of details, not good enough just to use maintenance staff to keep it alive. After many years in the service industries I would be happy to elaborate. Car parking is only just acceptable, a parking attendant would ease the frustration caused when seeking a space.
Pleasant surrounding and good quality Value for money - 75 / 25 - It is a little expensive for what you actually get in room .Good quality facilites for spa and reelax but rooms very sparse.
really nothing at the hotel; appart fromt the very nice view .and the access to the beach hotel seemed very 'run down' and old fashionned. definately not value for money for a short stay. the staff was non existant, the rooms were nothing better than a cheap roadside hotel type.breakfast was appaling considering the cost.if you go there for the spa the experience is probably different
The services of the Hotel, the position and the breakfast are very good. It's incredibile that in such kind of Hotel some persons of the staff don't speak english!!
Far better than what I expected.
The location was excellent with only a short walk to beach and village. Breakfast was excellent and had lots of choices. The pool could be opened earlier in the morning than 9pm before breakfast like most other hotels with facilities. The evening dinner menu should be more varied and generous with portions.
The position of the hotel with all rooms facing the sea. The main attraction in the Hotel is Talasso. However if the hotel want to attract more guests and to Talasso as they must speak at least main languages. Now only a few people speak English and no one - Russian. There is no information in Russian inside the hotel. The website booking.com has mor information that hotel and Talasso themselves.
The location is convenient to the surrounding areas we were visiting. The staff were friendly and helpful. A cute place for the budget we had. The bar lounge/outside deck area is nice when watching the sky change colors over the water in the mornings. We left out the Do Not Disturb sign on our door when we would leave during the day, however, the room was still entered and cleaned. We never brought it up to the staff though, but everything else was fine.
I found the staff to be attentive to the guests needs and able to communicate in the english language when needed.
Very handy and attractive location for catching ferry from St Malo. A clean, efficient operation with well-trained staff.
We were travelling down to La Rochelle so was an overnight stay. The bed was uncomfortable.
Very helpful, breakfast very good value
The service and size of the cold plate of food that I had - I arrived after the restuarant had closed, but had a massive and very tasty selection of cheeses, pates, bread etc, with three desserts - it was sufficient for my breakfast as well. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Comfortable bed, good shower - what more could you want for an overnight stay? Nothing
Very friendly staff who did well to speak english. Our room needed a towel rail in the bathroom, and another easy chair. The menu needs to change every few days
Good value for money. Nice breakfast. Room narrowness. Ceiling 2 meters high.
Convenient location after a late evening arrival from Jersey.
Excellent friendly and knowlegable staff, Good restaurant facilities Would have like tea and coffee making facilities in the bedrooms also I felt the triple room was crowded.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and there was a very good restaurant for this budget end hotel. The rooms were very clean, especially the bathroom. It was very simply furnished. Small rooms and no snacks available, but would stay again
Staff were helpful and the room was very comfortable. Lovely swimming pool. Luckily we spotted that we'd been charged for breakfast (40 euros!) when we'd only had coffee.
Location in Dinard was perfect. The bedroom provided did not have air conditioning.
Just about everything you would want at one site. VFM probably depends on whether you want to use all that the hotel has to offer. The hotel made a mistake with our booking and could not accommodate us the first night - their response was excellent (eg free alternative hotel, upgade for the remainder of our stay). If your room has a balcony, ask for the wing on the right as you look at the hotel as it gets the sun - if that is what you want but means your room also gets warmer. Rooms at the front of the hotel can suffer from a bit of street noise and as they overlook the foyer, also from those returning from the casino, more so if you have to leave your window open to cool down. Hotel car park a bit pricey at E16 per day.
Quality of the swimming pool and the roof garden to relax in.
situation and friendly staff
friendly, helpful staff having to pay extra for the car
The welcome was good and as expected. Garden, terrace and pool pleasant. Staff helpful, pleasant. Disappointed in room- dark with no view, not good value for. money
Very professional staff No complaints
Excellent facilities & Location The fact that Parking & Breakfast was an extra charge.
Facilities and helpful multi-lingual staff. The pool, gym and garden terrace were a great feature as was the location. Given ugrade from superior to deluxe as staying for 6 nights. Rooms could do with tea/coffee making facility and an additional chair or two. Although the breakfast is excellent some form of express breakfast would be good as 20 euros is expensive if only a coffee and croissant is required. Very noisey in early hours as no airconditioning means windows need to be left open.
We had an enjoyable stay at the hotel, the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was very central to the beach and restaurants Our room although being very clean and comfortable was a bit small
Recently modernised very comfortable helpful staff
Efficient reception, comfortable room, clean modern shower, external electric window shutters. Walking distance to beach 1 minute, walking distance to good selection of great restautrants 2 minutes, great walks along the seafront with summer boat service across the estuary to St Malo. BBC World on the TV lots of French channels but so many times you can watch the news if you don't speak French, other hotels in this town have more English tv channels which would be a plus.
Accueil du pesonnel. Hôtel très bien situé dans Dinard près de la zone d'activité : plage, casino, restaurant, commerce, promenade Dommage pour le parking un peu difficile et réclamant la demande constante d'ouvrir la porte du garage à l'entrée et à la sortie (oas de dispositif personnel à l'usage du client). Dommage pas de restauration.
The funny/friendly attitude of the staff though very professionnal - location - design - "piano bar" Price/quality of breakfast
Friendly staff. Good location. Comfortable room Room rather dark. Would have liked to have coffee/tea making facilities
It is situated near the center of the city The best room's price is much higher than the standart, but the difference is so little (about 3 square meters - it means nothing)
the exceptional friendliness of the staff. We liked everything. Would have been nice if the hotel has restaurant facilities.
proximity to the beach
The Family room with the upstairs for children was excellent they loved it, it was like another room just for them. The food in the Resturant was very nice and lots of choice and the wine was just as we like it. My perants stayed in room 103 and the bathroom was not very nice at all they would have liked a bath in their room, not a wet room shower it looked very dated that room.
The room was excellent value for money for a family of four, bright and roomy with a balcony, fantatsic value. (1) Air-conditioning did not seem to work, we had to open the sliding door in the middle of the night to let some cool air in. (2) It would have been nice to have had tea & coffee making facilities in the room, not everyone wants a full breakfast
The room is clean, quiet and nice. The king size bed was two single beds putting together. The restaurant is expensive. Unless you are a golfer, there is really nothing else to do at the hotel; no swimming pool, no tennis court, etc. It's really only for golfing.
A good clean room in a quiet location with an excellent restaurant Nothing really
Excellent facilities, welcoming staff
Lovely location. Room was a good size with mezzanine floor for childrens beds. We enjoyed seeing the golfers as we ate breakfast The restaurant food was great for adults but a little too fancy for our youngest child.
Rooms are excellent. Wanted to eat in the restaurant and we were unable to book a table (this was part of the reason for going to the hotel). Restaurant staff did not make any effort and our dissatisfaction was exacerbated when we found out that there were several vacant tables in the restaurant that we could have occupied.
A very clean & modern hotel, very comfortable and relaxing, also a beautiful setting. unfortunaltey if you dont play golf (like us) there isnt much else to do, you may also get woken up early with golfers leaving their rooms etc to play golf. ideal for a 1 night stop over though.
Family room is spacious. The rooms got quite warm at night, especially upstairs bedroom. Air conditioner was not effective.
The spaciousness of the room was wonderful as well as the view. The staff was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat. Larger trash cans for the bathroom and it needs one for the main quarters. Wi-Fi needed in all rooms.
nice hosts, good breakfast, sea view. room a bit small
quite comfortable, very small room, the restaurant and cafe was extremely expensive for a 3 star hotel, staff very friendly. room, bed and toilet far too small. Towels too small and thin.
Lovely room with great view. I think at the rate they were charging , breakfast should have been included. The rooms were incredibly noisy and it was possible to hear neighbours flushing toilets etc. The bathroom smelt of drains but admittedly when we mentioned this on departure the staff said they would look in to this.
Great position and excellent value. Definitely to be visited again.
The location of the hotel is lovely overlooking the mouth of the River Rance. The staff are friendly and the food excellent with an attractive terrace for eating or drinking.
The hotel is magnificently located, the tide laps at the door and the gentle sound of the tidal flow filled the room. The room was spacious and stylishly comfortably furnished. Free high speed internet access was appreciated. A quitet corner of Dinard with ready access to everything is rare and greatly appreciated.
Clean and tidy hotel with attentive staff. Food good. Food rather expensive.
Stayed the 13th to the 20th Sept 2009 and found the staff very friendly and helpful.Recommend you book early and ensure you have a room with a sea view like we did. Balconies on all first and second floor sea view rooms. Parking was fine but could imagine in the summer to be more difficult.
Staff were not particularly friendly compared to other hotels we have stayed at in Dinard and was not child friendly. Could not get a reservation in the restaurant during our stay which was one of the reasons for booking this hotel. Not the hotels fault as maybe we should have made table reservations earlier however got the impression they did not like children in the restaurant. Unfortunately the room was very small and did not reflect the pictures on the website. Lack of wardrobe space and the toilet was very small - felt like you were in a cupboard!. Could only keep the windows open with the exterior blind down which blocked out all the light. Probably not an issue for someone without children but not a suitable room with children.
A beautifully modernised hotel in a fabulous location. Rated !0/10
Staff were very helpful, the bathroom was very good and everything was very clean.Good heating/ air con A kettle would have been a nice inclusion in the room and it was a little small, but it was excellent for money, so can't complain.
great facelift though it has lost its old real French style I have known for 20+ years. Very welcoming; spottlessly clean, excellent breakfast, good value parking if you ask. Rooms small but beautifully furnished. no
we had a very friendly reception and found the bedroom clean and comfortable if ,maybe a little small The breakfast was very adequate
The service at this hotel is excellent. None
Staff were very friendly and helpful.Breakfast range good
Excellent location. Staff ( particularily the Manageress ) were extremely polite and helpful. The breakfast was very good and unhurried. During our stay at the beginning of September the bar shut at 7.00pm so no chance of a nightcap when returning from an evening out.
Hotel in very good location. Very clean with excellent breakfast. Very heplful staff. No Parking at hotel, though free parking close by with information from reception staff.
The hotel was bright and new and the staff were very welcoming No car parking. The room needed a mirror in the bedroom as well as the bathroom, especially as it was 2 ladeis sharing.
My daughter & I had to stay an extra day in France due to a flight change. I chose this hotel after reading the reviews on Trip Adviser. The staff were very helpful & gave excellent recommendations for restaurants. The room was clean and modern and good value. I would recommend this hotel
location is excellent for shopping, dining out, the beach and good bus service to neighbouring places. The staff are brilliant and helpful and organised a taxi to pick us up at the airport and take us back. The room was clean, modern and fresh, comfy bed with thick warm duvet. Fabulous! Would be nice to have a kettle in the room for that first drink of coffee or tea in the morning.
Its location close to the beach Breakfast was expensive
The location just across from the main beach is perfect and it is handy for the shops and local restaurants.
Hotel location is excellent -just 50 metres from main beach. Rooms were small but clean and sea view was good. Hotel needed lots of tlc but could be great. Breakfast was expensive and lacked value and choice. Proprietor did not really build up any rapport, or show us the hotels rooms or its facilities or discuss the general ammenities within the resort.
close to beach and all amenities. good value for money.
central location (though far from ferry station, 10 min walk), big rooms uncomfortable beds (they move when you move), dark in the corridors
Booking.com said there was private parking that is why we booked but we were told on arrival that there wa not. A little disappointing.
A friendly and convenient base from which to search for a now-defunct hotel I stayed in as a child in 1954! Didn't dislike anything
100 yrds from beach, comfortable room, 24 hrs come & go. no coffee/tea making facilities in rooms (minor niggle)
Great position and lovely outdoor patio area No bar!
comfortable beds, clean and functionning facilities, good breakfast, easy access to town, not too noisy pity no parking, pity no hospitality tray (tea and coffee), would like real soap.
I liked everything! Not having coffee or tea in the room.
we liked the good hospatality of the owners,the comfortable rooms,good choice of breakfast.this is a 2star hotel with 3/4 star features. would definatley reccomend.
Very peaceful ut of the way. Proprieter spoke some english
A lovely hotel situated in a lovely part of the countryside. Staff very helpful. Would have liked a kettle and some tea and coffee in the room.
Small manor/hotel in the countryside. Owners are warm, friendly and helpful. The owners are English speaking in France, which was most helpful. Hotel was a great locaiton for exploring the northern coast of Brittany.
Spacious room, very helpful and friendly staff, charming building, great location for exploring the area by car
Pretty courtyard and flowers,charming ambiance, like a family home, and views over countryside see through nylon curtains insteadf of fabric
Good location for coast and towns. Peaceful with lovely views of the Rance. None
A really lovely Manoir in a beautiful setting.The room was spacious comfortable and warm with a stunning view of the Rance.The owner was very pleasant and helpful ,he arranged for us to eat at a restaurant a couple of miles away which was very good.The continental breakfast was excellent.. Nothing,we would like to have stayed longer and will certainll visit again.It is half an hour from St Malo,has a large carpark which is locked at night ,very useful if you have a carfull and heading for the ferry.
The country manor setting was wonderous due to damp weather the room had a slight mildew smell.
Loved everything about it. The welcome, beautiful room with balcony and fabulous view. Immaculately clean. Great breakfasts. Superb location. Nothing.
Lift down to beach, good location, sea side rooms have balconies Rooms facing the street can be noisy
Soundproofing is very poor. Shower is poor and ineffective
Situation excellent..hotel was smack on the beach....a lift took us from our floor to within yards of the promenade.Closeness to Dinard airport meant car unnecessary for our 5 day break...lots of nearby walks and restaurants(.Bedroom had an excellent and large double bed and cotton sheets.) Our street view room was a fair size but rather dark (despite clever and plentiful use of mirrors )and a little noisy at night.Very small bathroom and toilet....no good for big tall people!
The reception staff were so friendly and helpful, hotel was in a fanstastic position - overlooking the sea.
Very quirky, very French. Bathroom a little dated - like your mother's bathroom in the seventies (!) but very clean and comfortable. Lovely view of beach from bedroom and superbly situated for Dinard centre for restaurants/shops. Staff very friendly and helpful. Free parking available in public carpark across the road. Very handy for boat to UK and Ireland and would use again, There wasn't really anything we didn't like. The breakfast at 12 euros was adequate - perhaps a freshly baked croissant rather than supermarket fare could be included for this price. Apart from that - all fine.
Breakfast was excellant
Cleanliness. Beds and towels changed very frequently and room was kept tidy without any inconvenience. Helpful advice given when required. Breakfast a bit pricey.... but Dinard itself is now an expensive town for meals and snacks. Did not have a car but parking charges are steep for those who drive.
Very prompt helpful and polite service, well organised and a very clean and tidy modernised hotel
Good breakfast. Helpful receptionist who advised me where to eat in town and provided map. no complaints
Very convenient location near centre of Dinard and a good location for the ferries from St Malo. We appreciated being able to check in and leave luggage before the designated check-in time.
Perfect 'stop over' hotel pre ferry - excellent location - very clean and friendly staff. Owner very friendly in advising walks / restaurants and such n/a
very helpful staff. hotel very basic, shower a work of art to use
The staff were more than helpful
Perfect as a base. Hotel has a very relaxed and comfortable feel about it. Hotel reception (Pascal) very friendly and helpful.
closeness to town nice location
Staff were mostly perfectly friendly Not a single soul there had any English whatsoever. Not a problem for us but could be for many. Perhaps this is a factor that could be included? Beds not very comfortable and small towels. Shower leaked and flooded floor in bathroom.
Cleanliness, convenience, qulait yof breakfast
the staff were very helpful and polite and welcomed us in a profressional manner
we were warmly greeted by the most charming frenchman who owned this hotel. he was so good humoured and helpfully gave us great advice on where to visit in the area, so we saw all the best sights. the hotel is located about a kilometer outside the pretty seaside town of dinar. this is only a 10 minute walk along the quaint residential streets to the hotel, which has free parking. the room was basic, but comfortable, clean, quiet and included tv and wi-fi. it was also the best value in dinar, which for us, was one of the nicest towns in beautiful brittany.
