    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Elizabeth Saint-Malo

    Decent, well-situated small hotel

    from

    I do share the enthusiasm for the service and attitude provided by the young couple that run the hotel. They are great. That aside the top floor room we had for three days was kind of cramped and frankly rather ordinary- typical of an older two star hotel in urban France. It wasn't heavy on the period features we expected and was distinctly short on storage space. On balance we had a pleasant stay here but can't see any reason to rate the hotel as highly as others here.

    Its all about service!

    from

    I fully endorse the glowing reports on this upmarket B&B.

    The owner and his wife are made for the job, enthusiastic,happy,and genuinely very helpful - all characteristics sadly lacking in most establishments! :(

    They simply cannot do enough to help you- remarkable!

    The building is best described as "cozy" - a gentle hip hotel style reflecting the youth of the owners.

    If you are to stay in Saint-Malo it HAS to be the Elizabeth -honest!!!!

    A few "add ons" which I hope will be useful.

    if you are BIG in stature then go for a twin room rather than a double.

    Be aware that as with all the hotels/B&B's within the old town the rooms are tiny, do not expect space and don't be angry when you don't get it!

    Noise is a problem within the walled town, it bounces off the stone walls and even footsteps at 6am awaken the heaviest sleeper- fortunately this hotel has excellent double glazing and it completely eliminates sound pollution BUT it also means having to have your windows shut at night and there isn't air con!

    Please .please,please take the advice from the owners as to where to eat - they know where to go!

    We went to 3 of their recommendations and it was a revelation compared to the touristy gaffs on the main drag.

    The Jean Braserie was the best - everyone eating in there was French, not a tourist in sight except us!

    Also if you take a car utilise the private parking, its just accross the road from the hotel - no problems re "trouble", just French drivers turning corners:P

    Wonderful small hotel

    from

    This was our second visit and we were not disappointed in either location or the excellent service and attention to detail by the Carres. This hotel is decorated with chic and personal flair. I reccommend this hotel unreservedly.

    Brilliant Hotel

    from

    Stayed in the Elizabeth on a weekend trip to St Malo after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel is excellent and its location fantastic.

    The owners are out of this world and will do anything to help, we even had trouble with the door at 3am after a few beers and the owner came to help us out with a big smile on his face.

    I would recommend this hotel if you want to stay inside the walls of Saint-Malo.

    Authentic and owners really helpful...perfect for our stay

    from

    We'd reserved a room in the new part of the hotel but when we checked in they upgraded us to the historic part of the hotel.

    The rooms were perfect for our needs.

    The location meant the hotel was easy to find and just 2 minutes from the main stretch of restaurants.

    Would definately go back there again when we're next in St Malo.

    Favorite in France!

    from

    This city was my favorite place in France! Elizabeth Hotel is the main reason I feel this way. Traveling with a school group, not everyone was too excited to welcome us. The owners, however, were so kind and attentive, there service alone makes me want to go back! The hotel was the most charming little place and I felt completely taken care of. I have hopes of returning someday. I'll never forget gazing out my window in the evenings, seeing the rooftops stretched out before me and a soft breeze blowing by. I miss it!

    Extremely nice will stay again

    from

    We stayed at this B&B on the recommendations of previous comments. We were not disappointed, it lived up to all comments and Caroline, the owner, was extremely helpful. Breakfash was fresh and cooked ot order. First class service. Cannot rate this hotel highly enough.

    Loved this hotel - will visit again

    from

    Hotel - We stayed at this hotel for 9 days in September. It is a lovely hotel and the furnishings are great. The hotel closes each night at 9pm and you are given a code for the front door and a door key. Its a bit like a very posh b&b really. There is no bar and no restaurant (even though we booked through expedia and were told that there is a bar)

    Staff - The proprietors are so very very friendly. They are extremely helpful with booking restaurants - so ask for reccomendations. Every restaurant they recommended was fabulous!

    Breakfast - this was lovely and can even be served in your bedroom or in the cellar which is gorgeous. You have to tell the owners what time you want breakfast each morning. You can have pastries, fresh fruit salad, bacon, eggs, coffee or tea and juice.

    Carpark - there is a garage (which you have to book beforehand) - it is 13 EURO a day. There is also the possibility of parking on the street and paying the parking meter - this is a better option if you are out in your car everyday as you don't pay for parking on street in the evening (if I remember correctly its from 8pm to 9am). The only good thing about booking the carpark is you don't have to worry about looking for a space! I can imagine that in peak season it must be a NIGHTMARE to find a space!

    Would stay at this hotel. Book direct though as we paid 20Euro a night more booking through expedia!!!

    Great!

    from

    We stayed in the Elizabeth Hotel for 1 night in Sept 2005. The hotel is excellent and set in the historic inter muros part of town, ideal for the ferry port. Our room was small but beautifully furnished and the hotel, generally, is very tasteful. The most outstanding part of the stay was however the welcome and hospitality of the owners. They were extremely helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We would definately stay here again.

    Brilliant friendly hotel

    from

    My wife and I recently stayed at the Elizabeth Hotel it was all round excellent, the proprietors are extremely helpful and English speaking.

    The hotel itself is very well situated about 2 minuites from the car ferry, it is very comfortable and welcoming. It is within Intra Muros, the old walled town which is a beautiful location full of interest. It has an abundance of top class restaurants and patisseries. We would thoroughly reccommend the Elizabeth, and look forward to our next visit

    We leave La Rochelle this morning and head for Brittany. We have rented a rather posh gite for our last week, in Dinan, near St Malo. Lovely friends Anne and David that we met in Greece, told us that this was a great place to stay. They are right. It is a gorgeous, mostly car free, medieval port on the River Rance with the walled town on the hill above. We are at the top of the steepest cobbled street, Rue Jerzual which climbs from the ...

    I made a massive pan of porridge with chopped apple from the garden and grated ginger. I knew the way to Mont-Saint-Michel well after having cycled it 2 days before. The weather was not as good as it had been on Sunday though and as I left Avranches the dark ominous clouds began to spit at me. should I pull over and get something to eat at the truck ...

    ... the scientists are right. If you don't want too bus it to the site, you can hoof it. We elected to walk the two miles and enjoy the beautiful day. Walking to Mont Saint Michel really is impressive and allows time to soak it all in.

    In the three weeks we have been in Europe, this is the only Disney-like site we have visited. But, all in all, it was a nice experience. The lower portion of the Mont ...

    We cycled into St Malo and looked around the impressive walled city and port. The afternoon, still hot and sunny, saw us relaxing reading and Chris swimming on a small beach near Cancale. In the evening we popped into Cancale and found a small restaurant for supper. More muscles for James and fish for ...

    Today we woke up to seeing hot air balloon across the sky out of the window of our quaint hotel. Into the car and off the st mont Michels. We climbed the stairs and alleys ways to the top and see the view from this magnificent castle on an island. We stayed the night at a holiday inn set in a golf ...
