Loved this hotel and it was good value. Full service (with fitness center, etc) in historic building. On coast - cute village - great walk along water. Great view of St Malo which is right across the channel (can take ferry or short 10-15 minute drive).

Hotel Barriere Le Grand is a fabulous place to stay while searching out wonderful Brittany villages or visiting Mt Sant Michel. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional, and Dinard is a great place to shop and stroll.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since 1859 the majestic, white facade has contemplated Saint-Malo bay. The first hotel built in what was to become THE sea-side resort on the Emerald Coast was initially named the Hotel de Dinard, before becoming the Grand Hotel Barriere de Dinard. Renovated by expert decorator Jacques Garcia, the hotel offers the utmost elegance, comfort and finery. Situated 45 min. Away from Mont Saint Michel, Dinard the "elegant" is all yours: the sea air and spray, the palm trees, the sea gulls, the beaches, the golf clubs by the sea, the Casino, Port BRETON tennis courts, midnight strolls, Dinard market and the hotel's heated pool, wellbeing at the ESPACE BIEN ETRE, Sauna and steamroom, lazing on the terrace and in the gardens facing the bay, summer jazz brunches, cocktails at "333 cafe", dinners at the blue. B, facing the sea, buffet breakfasts watching the sun comes up: could this sum up the good life combined with discrete luxury? ... more   less
