I love the design of the hotel, clean and comfortable, modern and so near to the beach, lovely view from the window..seperate toilet and bathroom...a plus....most amazing hotel i've ever stayed in, of course, st malo is a beautiful place..will definitely stay there again...
The staff were marvellous. We were allowed an early checkin from the ferry and when we were caught in snow storms they were able to be flexible with the check out too. The location was perfect for the centre of St Malo and there were excellent restuarants nearby. Everything was fantastic.
Wonderful shower arrangementsnand decor.The best I have ever seen in any hotel. I also admired proper reading lights well placed by the bed - very rare.
Very helpful staff allowed us to leave our bags early in the day. Beautiful sea view. Stylish room/bathroom. Fantastic position by the beach but only a short walk into town.
Nice place with a smashing view of the beach. Great shower! Easy walk to the wall city, with all it’s great places to eat, meant that it was not a problem the hotel did not have a restaurant. Very tight car park, although very secure if can get in! (We had a Land Rover). No opportunity to make tea or coffee in the room
Room was well appointed and furnished. Shower room was good. Location was good Breakfast we disappointing. Food choice was limited. Cpmplimentray champage that was offered as partvof the package was denied because the bar staff was not available and " I should have demanded it on arrival". Blame was passed to me and the hotel staff were adamant that it could not be sorted.
The location close to the walls of St Malo and the beautiful view when we were eventually allocated the correct room
I found the price too high particularly as everything had to be paid for in addition to the room price
We thought the bedroom was really well decorated and well presented. It had all amenities and had been really well thought out. It was probably the most comfortable room we stayed in during our 2 week holiday in France. It was also good having a secure garage. The only think we had hoped for was to have dinner on the evening that we arrived as we did not feel much like walking too far but unfortunately, the hotel didn't have a restaurant. The barmaid suggested a sea food restaurant in the walled city which wasn't very good.
It does what it says on the tin Tea/Coffee making facilities would be nice. Garage parking is restricted and expensive
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!!
Its location... Room Size
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
the staff and the room I would like breakfast included
Very friendly and efficient staff, comfortable room, good location in quiet part of city (but some distance from the centre, about 2 miles along the sea front)
Modern boutique styling within gorgeous french building - just a minute from the sea...great. Not publicised but a bonus for all returning home or stopping on the way to their main destination a secure carpark. PS Tortoise in the garden great for the little ones. No restaurant which means continental breakfast bit of a shame given the smells wafting in on the morning breeze from the neighbouring properties, but a good selection and reasonably priced compared to UK equivalents.
Everything was fantastic! The small but lovely hotel was so comfortable and clean, well designed, well cared. The hotel staff was so friendly and helpful. The ocean view was great from our bedroom. It was so quiet at night that we could sleep very well with the sound of sea. The beautiful view of stars from the balcony was unforgettable! The breakfast was simple, but very delicious. We enjoyed their crispy baguette every morning. It was so nice hotel that we finally extended our stay. Love to come back there again in near the future...
The Villefromoy is a very well presented small hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities excellent, especially the bar area which was welcoming and thoughtfully decorated. Potential guests should know that the hotel is 35 minutes walk from the old town of St Malo. We felt that the price of drinks in the bar was excessive - a single whisky, a Baileys and a coke cost 18 euros. We had wondered why such an attractive bar area would be deserted...
We had a very pleasant 4 day stay in September at this hotel. The hotel is situated in a very nice and calm area. The owner & staff were all very friendly and helpful. The fact that the hotel has no restaurant of its own is absolutely no problem. There are quite a few restaurants in the very near vicinity, approximately 5 – 10 minutes by car. The owner gave us upon arrival a comprehensive pack with all kinds of restaurants and map. If you like seafood you must try Brasserie du Silon, excellent and a very nice ambiance and service indeed (was recommended by the owner) The hotel does serve breakfast and also has a nice bar. Rooms were clean and well taken care off. Finding parking space during the day and in the evening was no problem. The hotel has it own private space, and in the street in front there was always place available (at least when we were there). We initially were looking for a hotel inside the old town, being in St Malo for the first time, but were ever so happy that we diverted to La Villefromoy – excellent choice!
The quality of the decor
Comfortable clean and welcoming hotel in beautiful building just yards from sea front and a 30 min wallk into the old town. excellent base for a "ferry stop." No negatives
Very modern, spotlessly clean, and with room and bathroom finished to very high standards. The hotel is a stone's throw away from the sandy beach promenade and our room had a good sea view. The breakfast was also very good (ours included in price) ... Rooms are a bit expensive (we paid €135 per night for a sea side double room). The Hotel is not situated directly on the sandy beach promenade .... so the sea view is not completely unobstructed. It's about 30 mins walk to the Saint-Malo city centre, although more than half of the walk is along the traffic-free sandy beach promenade, which in fact made quite a wonderful walk.
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.
friendly, helpful staff having to pay extra for the car
Very professional staff No complaints
Excellent facilities & Location The fact that Parking & Breakfast was an extra charge.
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
Location in Dinard was perfect. The bedroom provided did not have air conditioning.
situation and friendly staff
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.
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.
The view. Not enough staff on duty - was kept waiting 15 minutes for check in. Our room too close to the kitchen which was noisy until almost midnight.
Very nice room Not very good information available about the hotels many faculties and how best you can use them
Wow we can not say enough on how splendid this hotel and all the staff are. Our only mistake was eating in a top restarant, we will eat in the splender of this hotel next time
Food in the restaurant was good
the cap horn restaurant, excellent helpful staff, the proximity to the sea and the surrounding architectural context the lack of a good hotel service pack/ guide in english that detailed all of the hotels facilities and opening hours, the hotel ambience feels a bit dated
hotel staff very nice but would probably not go there unless we took advantage of their spa packages as everyone there were in robes during breakfast and the smell of the pools and therapy were very noticable in our hallway and room. above
Everything! The location on the beach was fantastic, everything about the hotel itself was very, very nice and the food was excellent.
located on the first line of a wonderful beach magnificent swimming pools
Good location. Large bedroom A large part of the hotel has not been restored - facilities are in a very bad state for an hotel of this class. The thermes/thalasso area is not what you can expect from a spa. No attention for international guests (e.g. only French newspaper)
We liked the excellent cuisine and service at the CapHorn restaurant, but the service at "The Terrace" was a disaster. We liked the reception area, very comfortable to wait for your room to be ready, and the fact that you are right on the beach. We did not like the view from our room (actually no view at all except a big terrace) and the noise coming from the kitchens. Did they give us this room because it was at a discount price ? And also we had a rough woollen blanket on our bed instead of a soft comforter. But what we did not like at all was the sight of people in bathroom robes everywhere else than in the spa : at breakfast, in the lounge, etc... at all times of the day.
room with a view to english channel - walking down boardwalk to city. had twin beds instead of a double - ensure to clarify
A modern hotel with up to date furnishings and fittings right on the sea front and close to the harbour and old town. No
freindly helpful staff - BBC on the TV
This hotel was very clean with standard decor. The walk to the walled town was about 15-20 minutes. It had a very nice water view.
Getting a room at 4th floor at seaside (paying more), we had a wonderfull room with a nice view. We had a fine indoor Parking. The room was excellent and the breakfast very good. We would deffinetly stay there again The price was a bit hight, but we had value for money.
The location to both the beach and the walled city no tea/coffee facilities in the room
Ease of use Breakfast was a bit chaotic
Helpful staff and lovely sea view. no
Sea-view - although it is necessary to pay a premium for this. Pleasant staff, spotless hotel.
Location was excellent, right on the beach. Ocean view room was fine.
I liked to Viberace and atmosphere in and around the hotel, the staff were very helpful. The deal was very resonable. The lift is a bit strange, the decor and carpet looked a little tired.
Upgraded to a very large room. Very nice Perfectly clean, but will need modernising soon and a lick of paint here and there.
The fact that after driving 3,000 miles in 8 days thr staff and accomodation were exactly as we needed, and also after making a mistake in the booking date ,it was changed without any fuss. Thank you. Lack of parking at the time we arrived due to having a larger vehicle ( Mini Bus ) This was rectified in the Paid parking behind the Hotel the following morning.
people are kind and the room is clean. Especially that the location is great. we would like to live in it next time we go there. The wall is a little thinner, so the defense of noise is not so good.
it was in the centre of the town. we were given a suite for the price of a double room!
Best Location i.e. near old city and near (super modern) underground station, which takes us to the railway station easily. Good shopping possibility around the hotel.
The location is very good, and it is quiet. Our tiny room was nominally a double, but had space for only one bedside table and one chair. There were only 2 shallow drawers for clothes and only 4 coat/dress hangers. The hotel was unable to provide more hangers.
The location was perfect, we had close access to all the bars and cafes as well as the bus stop for going further afield. The reception staff could have been nicer but it think that may have been the language barrier, can speak some French but not fluent.
The location was first class. Breakfast very reasonable price and plenty of restaraunts close by. There was no hot water first thing in the morning (07.30) and took awhile to become available (08.40)
Great bar and location Bathroom layout is dated and could be improved
the breakfast is great!
Helpful, friendly & multi lingual staff. Being able to sit on the terrace, take a drink and see your kids playing on the beach all at the same time. The kids particularly enjoyed the hand painted boat scenes on the corridor doors. China cups in bedrooms would make hot drinks easier to manage than plastic ones - not very environmentally friendly either. The corridor carpets required sunglasses to look at - but we could live with that.
just to have the choice beetween shower or bath
Very good location. Right on the beach. Very clean, pleasant, helpful staff. Will stay there again/
The view from our window was beautiful. The location was near to the walled city, but not close enough to walk to.
The site in front of the beach
fantastic view right on the beach everything spotless friendly staff coffee/tea biscuits in room nice walk into town along beachside about 20 minutes to st malo old town room was a little small
Very nice and pleasant hotel with helpful staff.
Access to room, rushed for us as we arrived early
We all enjoyed our stay. The staff on the desk were excellent * the room was magnificent. I would stay at again if I had the chance.
Not too far from the ferry port Fairly limited restaurant possibilities on site
Pleasant and helpful staff. Good room with adequate space anmd comfortable beds. Thin walls let us hear the visiting Essex Biker swearing club quite clearly. No hotel parking means that you have to search around the local streeets.
We had a terrific time. The room was comfortable and in a great location. The most pleasant aspect was the staff, who were friendlier and more helpful than expected.
close to water, short walk to the old part of town, good size room with updated bath
Good location to visit the old town and ferry port Poor parking facilities
Staff very friendly and most helpfull. Mattress could be more comfortable
very helpful clean environment no
Enjoyable atmosphere, quite room, overlooking the sea, great location for walking into the old town. Heavily booked, we had the two attic rooms which disappointed at first as there were only velux windows, frustrating for toddler, but the room was large and the view when standing and the roar of the sea were great. Hotel offered to move us on second day, but we would have had rooms on different floors, not ideal with second room was for teenage daughers.
Everything about the hotel made our stay excellent.
General ambience. Swimming pool excellent.
This is well run and well maintained hotel. The staff are very helpful and I would certainly return there.
the comfortable beds+helpful staff.But avoid bank holiday weekends as parking in the town is horrendous.Beaches lovely & clean plenty of space
friendly helpful staff and good atmosphere
A warm welcome, with very comfortable accommodation. Staff genuinely pleased to help and with good sense of humour.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was a good size and very comfortable. Flat screen TV with BBC 1 and Channel 4 reception. Swimming pool nice and warm and big enough for a prpoer swim. Nice gardens to relax in. The breakfast was expensive. It was quite a long walk to the old townof St Malo.
a great relaxing hotel with great gardens and pool
Indoor swimming pool. Restaurant excellent. No tea/coffee making facility in the room but this was France!
Nearness to sea
We bookd a Superior Double and a Superior Twin Room and had written confirmation of this. However we were given 2 Superior Twin Rooms
Loved the location with a view out of my window to the sea. Charming exterior with courtyard and comfortable lobby.
It was quiet, relaxed, very comfortable and a great price
looked great felt relaxing fabulous atmosphere
location and views are stunning in a beautiful historical building
outstanding value for money and in a very central position near both the beach and in center of the walled city, the room was very modern
Good value for money dinner Directions to the hotel were useless & parking was difficult due to roadworks.
The setting in the walled city, lovely room and gorgeous bathroom, close to lift (I walk with some difficulty), excellent breakfast, being able to prebook garage space for the car. They responded to my explanations by giving us a suitable room. The bed was too short for my 6'3" husband and not a divan, so he hit his toe a few times - but it was hardly their fault! I had to phone to confirm garage reservation and room with shower, not bathtub - would have appreciated an e-mail, but it was all ok.
the location was the best feature. misleading abut the parking situation and availability of internet
friendly staff, great location with a lovley sea veiw clean and well maintained room
Staff helpful. Bedroom rather basic. No water or tea facilities, bathroom lighting poor,
Because the hotel was out of the centre the restaurant was very welcome. Very accommodating when we said we were arriving late.
Conveniently situated for Cross Channel Ferries Lack of rooms with baths
compact and efficient; just right for a stop-off en route. Good dinner well priced. Room small but practical. Badly marked access from main-road and within shopping park.
Convenient. Happy to provide free coffee in morning even though we did not have breakfast.
The public rooms were bright and clean, surprised to learn it was a long-established hotel, it appeared to be quite new. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food good.. Having disembarked from the Jersey ferry at 1935, it was after driving around trying to find the place that I returned to the ferry terminal to seek assistance. The duty staff had no idea of the hotel location, but with the help of the internet and a town map, we did eventually find it after 10 miles and an hour later.
Friendly, convient and reasonably priced hotel. No hair drying facility in bedroom.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was conveniently situated for the range of sight seeing we had planned. The hotel was very much on an industrial estate with noisy lorries leaving early in the morning. There were no tea making facilities and having been woken early by the lorries I would like to have been able to make tea.
Cleanliness of room. Traffic noise. Location on trading estate.
good foir overnight stay
Peace and tranquility That there are no Tea/Coffee facilities in the room
Fantastic location. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely bathroom. Nice large room.
The bathroom was lovely, new and clean. The continental breakfast was also very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful. On our last day staff asked if we wanted to order a taxi from the hotel. We had already decided that we wanted to go to Dinard by bus as it was going to be cheaper to get a taxi from there to the airport. The lady in the hotel arranged for a taxi to pick us up from a location in Dinard which was very much appreciated as when we went to Dinard we did not see a single taxi in sight. The lights on the corridor did not come on automatically with movement. It was difficult to find the lights the first time.
best located, exquisite furniture, nice and welcome staff. There is a useful little fridge in the room.
All the Staff very helpfull and warm, location is ideal for both shops and cafe's. Hotel is modern with nice classical features - very French.
Bathroom at the room quite old. This is the only disadvantage for us
Charming style, located right inside the walled city, easy access to everything. Homely atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff, lovely breakfast.
Good central location. Calm atmosphere. Welcoming, friendly staff.
Excellent location within the walls of St Malo with plenty of shops, bars & restaurants within walking distance.
The location of the hotel in the old city, everything in walking distance from good restaurants to the beach. Hotel parking was difficult unless you had booked in advance and garages are tight. The one way streets make it hard to locate the hotel unless you have a good map or Sat Nav/GPS. Very small showers, small but fairly comfortable rooms.
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.
The funny/friendly attitude of the staff though very professionnal - location - design - "piano bar" Price/quality of breakfast
the exceptional friendliness of the staff. We liked everything. Would have been nice if the hotel has restaurant facilities.
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.
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
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)
proximity to the beach
Recently modernised very comfortable helpful staff
