TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Cartier Saint-Malo
Nice hotel in the centre of the Old Town in Saint Malo. Recently refurbished, our room was clean and comfortable with a great hot shower which was just what the doctored ordered after a long day. Good secure storage for the bikes and friendly, helpful staff.

Last thing we wanted was to be last off the boat and get turned over by French customs.
Two of the world's quickest showers later we're down on Deck 6, we're not last, thank f**k.
We pick a pretty French customs girl, Wilbur flashes a smile, passports shown and we're away.
It was grey and miserable, they'd obviously had some overnight rain and the roads were wet but strangely enough it was still quite ...
... hereabouts. Tonight, we can see the Mont lit up with the town lights and it's floodlights although Mike says we are not seeing it's best side from here. The only downside is that we are on a sideways slope and being on the public road we're not supposed to use our ramps. The French guy in front (there are only the two vans here) craftily waited until there was only the two of us before putting his on ramps. Trust a Frenchman to buck the ...
