    « A classic Hotel situated on the Bay »

    This hotel has a lovely situation but is a long way from the 'Intra Muros'. A good half hours walk, or a €8 taxi ride. The promenade outside is broad and full of holiday makers enjoying themselves. As befits a 4* establishment the breakfast (€17) was excellent including egg, bacon and sausages and all the other continental varieties. The room we has (308) was very well appointed with comfortable beds, a nice bathroom with a separate loo and had a little balcony with a table and chairs and quite perfect when the sun is shining, as it was!


    NOT BEST WESTERN STANDARD! Right after check out, at the parking lot we realized we forgot our iphone. Went back in at went to the room, looked at the exact spot we left it, IT WAS GONE! And the cleaning ladies had just been there! WE KNOW THEY STOLE IT, BECAUSE IT WAS TURNED OFF (WE HAD LOTS OF BATTERY ON!). No staff wanted to helped. Said noone would do it. But how would a phone disaper and gets turned off in a few minutes??? Also "find my iphone" was turned off in the meantime.Why would "BEst Western" accept thiefs as staff? UNBELIEVEABLE! I REPEAT - DO NOT GO THERE. NO HELP AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!

    « Right on the beach. Great views out to sea »

    This is a great hotel in a brilliant place. Restaurant and terrace look straight out on what can only be be described as a perfect beach. Restaurant manageress was brilliant.. and the food delicious. Will definitely return

    « Perfect hotel for a seaside stay »

    Stayed in a room with a lovely view facing the beach. Hotel is well-appointed, clean and well-staffed. Hotel parking is limited in number, but well-secured and certainly convenient. We did not try the restaurant, but another guest said that it was pretty good.

    « Wonderful hotel! »

    We stayed at this hotel the last week of October and we are so glad we did! Our room had a breathtaking view of the sea. Breakfast was amazing, everything fresh and delicious and so many choices! The staff was very helpful and very nice. The hotel is right on the magnificent beach of Saint Malo so all we had to do was to go out and we could walk for miles along the beach. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Fourth visit and still 100% excellent »

    Our stopover in St Malo would not be complete if we didn't stay at Hotel Alexandra. It has everything one could want. Position, parking, excellent staff, very clean and extremely comfortable rooms and yummy food! We have promised ourselves that our next stay will be longer than one night - making it a short break holiday destination. Thank you very much.

    « Not Tesla friendly »

    I visited this hotel enroute to Jersey as my Tesla said there was a destination charger there. When I arrived the car park was empty so I asked if I could charge my car for an hour or so while I had lunch at the hotel. The response was a big fat no. Consequently the restaurant lost out on a lunch order and the hotel is a no-no for me in future whatever car I may be driving.

    « Amazing location, great restaurant, lovely staff »

    We chose this hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary trip (with the kids!). When we arrived we were pleased with the on site parking and even more pleased when we realised they had upgraded us to room 506 - sea view. The views were beautiful. The hotel is literally across the pedestrian walkway to the beach - so really safe for kids and near for anyone with problems walking far. The food, whilst not cheap - was lovely, and the pictures of the setting sun on the sea were worth it. The staff were lovely and couldn't do enough to help. There is a mini bar. if you are fit and healthy then the old town is within walking distance, but we took a taxi which was about 10 minutes and not expensive. We ate out the second night and the hotel gave us a brilliant recommendation for a sea food restaurant which was not overpriced, as some are in the old town.

    « Pleasant overnight stay with family »

    We spent the night here as a family before getting the ferry back to Portsmouth. We stayed in a family room, which was very pleasant and comfortable, with a large balcony. The location of the hotel on the sea front couldn't be better - beach is literally outside. We all ate at the restaurant, and unlike one of the earlier reviews had a very good experience. Food was good (nothing flash but all very pleasant), and our waitress was superb - spoke good English when our basic French failed, and chatted away to the kids about the little toys they had with them. We'd recommend this place - only advice to the hotel would be to remodel the disabled access so as to make more of the bay window in the restaurant overlooking the sea - the view is spectacular and should be made more of.

    « Right on sea front »

    Stayed 1 night in a sea facing room with balcony, outside was a promenade then the beach and sea. Wonderful view. Room was very good (beds a bit too firm for our liking). Full bathroom and separate toilet, all very clean. Had lifts so no problem for people with mobility problems. Staff were very friendly and spoke English, Restaurant for both dinner and breakfast was okay, prices for room very reasonable 130 euro per night but the meals for two came to 150 euros, not so good. Parking was 12 euros per night. WiFi was free. Would definitely stay again but would probably go out for dinner elsewhere.

    « If Only . . . . »

    If only the restaurant staff and the chef were up to the same standard as the accommodation we would have rated this hotel as excellent. The restaurant staff were totally inattentive, even though the restaurant was less than 30% full and the food was very poor. I had the grilled steak, which was very fatty and tough but the frozen chips were awful. My wife's salmon was tasteless. No-one asked us if the food was any good even though we left quite a lot. We may stay here again because the room was very nice and a good size but we will NEVER eat here again!

    « Excellent hotel set along the sea wall »

    We spent two days at the hotel. The room was very confortable with a great see view thanks to a bow window. The location was excellent with a small walk along the see side to the old town. We had breakfast and dinner and they were both excellent. The staff was very kind. We have also use the parking service and it was very convenient (but not for free). Please note that, despite an excellent soundproofing in the room, on a very windy night, you could hear the wind whistle. No matter what, we slept very well !

    « Very poor »

    Hotel very old fashioned and expensive. Small and not clean rooms. Breakfast poor and 0 local products. Does not deserve 4 stars but 2 maximum. Really not worth the visit. Staff is nice, not their fault. Nice view on the sea. Far from any shops though.

    « Very nice waterfront hotel »

    The best part about this hotel is the location. Waterfront and only a 10-15 minute walk to town. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was a nice spread. Sadly I only stayed 1 night. I only wish that they had more English channels on tv but I think it's common not to have English channels as that was my experience with other hotels I stayed at in France as well.

    « A nice hotel in a lovely seafront location »

    We stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. The staff were very friendly, the room was large and well appointed and the stay was very comfortable. It is facing the main beach in St Malo, so maybe see if you can secure a sea front room. It is just a 20 minutes walk along the beach front to the old walled town where you'll find the restaurants and shops, though there were some nice places to eat also along the way as well as a good restaurant at the hotel. Be aware of the extra charges that you might incur. Breakfast was a bit expensive at €17 per person and we weren't expecting the €12 per day to park on site.

    « Overnight stop »

    This is another hotel I have stayed in a few times being only a few minutes drive from the ferry terminal and 10 minutes walk to the walled city. The rooms though fairly small are very clean and comfortable. There is plenty of secure on site parking and a nice restaurant overlooking the sea offering a varied and enjoyable menu. A good place to stay for a long weekend in St Malo.

    « Just Wow! »

    The room, the view, the staff...above expectations! Loved everything about it, the location next to the sea and just 10mins walk from the centre. We had a terrace in our room that overlooks directly the beach. The staff was really friendly.Thumbs up!
