“Comfortable and friendly boutique hotel - but pricey”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

Just returned from a comfortable overnight stay at Hotel Beaufort. The room and bathroom were nicely furnished, although there were few "extras" and the rooms were small for the price (around 130 Euro pn excluding breakfast). For example, there were no coffee making facilities in the room (not a massive problem really).

Breakfast was pricey at 13 Euro for the buffet, although there was a good range of breads, pastries and cakes on offer.

I cannot fault the hotel service, as they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. The hotel's position right on the main promenade is idyllic, and the sea views from the room and breakfast room is stunning.

We probably made a mistake by booking into this place on the journey back from a busy holiday in the Morbihan, prior to catching a ferry. This place would be ideal for a relaxing stay in its own right - I think the style and ambience of the hotel would then make the high price seem good value.

Room Tip: Go for the sea view rooms- worth the premium.

Right on the beautiful Sillon beach, this is a beauty. We walked into the centuries old walled city along the beach at sunset - just wonderful. Owners (Mark et Sylvie) take great pride in offering outstanding quality advice on everything from restaurants (all 3 recommendations were brilliant) to "must-see" attractions in the area. Worth paying slightly more for one of the bay windowed ground floor apartments with outside sitting area directly on the beach. Breakfast each morning was a treat, excellent quality (limited choice) with fantastic ocean views. Highly recommended.

This hotel has such atmosphere. It was clean, warm and really lovely decor that wasn't too cliched seaside. The staff were lovely and helpful. The breakfast was good. The room we had was quite small but had a good size bathroom and sea views. Watching the tide come and go, and waves crashing on the sea wall were part of the experience. Would highly recommend to anyone.

There were some great restaurants across the road (we ate twice at the Commercial across the road and loved it) and the best crepes ever within the walled town (we ate at La Licorne creperie everyday it was so good).

Room Tip: Definately get a seaview.

Very nice small hotel with French charm. Take one of the ocean side rooms on the 1st floor. There are four of them: 12, 14, 16 and 18. Number 14 and 16 have bigger terrace then two others. The breakfast is excellent, the breakfast room has great view. The only problem is the lack of parking, but you can easily find the place in the street. And remember – do not go to the restaurant recommended by the hotel – “La Brasserie du Sillon”.

What a wonderful place to spend a few days recharging batteries and catching up with family. The location is wonderful and you are directly faced with either the sea lapping up over the wall next to the hotel or a wide expanse of beach depending on the tide. The welcome was very friendly, rooms were of good quality, breakfast - simple but good. You are in walking distance of the old town and many restaurants (20 mins).

A cold welcome, not even a bonjour or a smile, local shops closed till 7pm and nowhere to eat or snack till then. When the pizza place across the road did open its doors we were told to come back when they (the owners) had finnished their dinner...so why have your doors open and neon sign on? Hmmm. The room was very tidy and quiet. Maybe it was just not our day?

As a small intimate hotel we do our best to make our guests feel comfortable and welcomed.

Saint-Malo is a town frequented by many tourists of all nationalities and habits. However, meals are organized around the French eating habits. As French people sit down for full meals, they do not often snack between meals. However, food is available in the Old City at most hours of the day, but neighborhood restaurants are only open at meal time.

We spent four glorious nights in mid September, 2011 at this seaside "home away fro home". Mark and Sylvie Peterson, owners, made us feel like family. They were gracious hosts, helping us plan our daily excursions in the area. This beautiful hotel on the beach overlooks the English Channel. Our room was immaculate with a comfortable bed, private modern bath, flat screen TV, and a delightful terrace overlooking the water. There was direct access to the beach, although we did not swim because it was too cool for us. Only a short walk along the Digue to the Old City. A sumptious breakfast was served in a cheery room overlooking the water.We have never experienced such hospitality.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace facing the water.
