The family run boutique Hotel Bristol Union offers neat comfortable accommodation overlooking a beautiful Place in the intra-muros section of St Malo. This is the heart of the ancient town, carefully restored after the terrible damage of World War 2, and offering a completely different experience from the hotels of the beach promenade. The Bristol Union provides an excellent breakfast...

We arrived late by car from the ferry. The owner had, of course, waited up for us and was extremely helpful. Everything was explained fully, wifi code, tv remote, breakfast times, etc. Our room on the 4th floor was very spacious and comfortable, the bathroom bright and hot water plentiful for baths. The breakfast is an absolute delight; hot drinks...

It is a nice little cabin hotel. Very nice hoste .but it is small but overall what you pay for. St.Malo is a special place to visit and you don't waste your time in your room . But good bed and shower.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions. I have always found the patron more than helpful, he recommends good restaurants etc. The location is ideal for exploring St Malo. The charges are very competitive - this is a mid-range hotel at budget prices.

We stayed here for a few days as part of a driving holiday around France. We could not have been happier with this hotel. The hosts (Marc and Catherine) were the most welcoming and helpful hoteliers we have ever met. They care deeply about their guests' experience and for this reason, the hotel stands out in our memory of holiday....

Back to my old stamping ground, just a four day break. As good as ever. Managed to leave my continental adapter at home - no problem, voila, a drawer full of them. On 5th floor made me reliant on lift, and bathroom was small / bijou. Managed to misplace my card, oops!! Didn't change all my English money, beware, banks...

Pleasant little hotel (rather old-fashioned French Town hotel without restaurant) but perfectly situated for the walled town and the ferry port. Good value for the location but the room was very small (shower large!!) and the toilet not for the larger person. Miniscule comes to mind! The room took some getting in to as the lock on the door was...

Fabulous location within the walls. Bright clean hotel with friendly staff. Both staff spoke very good English but equally humoured us when we practiced our French. Lock up garage a massive bonus and very reasonable. Perfectly acceptable breakfast...impressive for small hotel. WiFi in reception area only, not in rooms. Door locks VERY difficult to open. This would be the difference...

We wanted rooms for 3 adults for one night, short notice, & this hotel had availability. We had cabin 3, which consisted of 1 twin room with shower & bath, and 1 double with shower & seperate toilet. The rooms were quite basic, but adequate, but could've been better thought out. The toilet in the double room was tiny &...

While on a trip to Guernsey to visit my boyfriend, he surprised me with a quick trip to St Malo and this hotel! On location alone, this hotel is fantastic. It is right in the middle of the Intra-Muros and was perfectly convenient for exploring the city, especially after wandering at night watching street performances and quite literally stumbling into...
