You can't beat the location of this hotel - it has a lift that opens directly out into a corridor that leads to the beach, however the hotel itself is like a maze and it's huge so it can be difficult to find your way back to your room if you're staying on the opposite side to the beach. You are literally only a hundred metres from the town centre which is packed with shops, restaurants and bars - great for a romantic getaway, a boozy weekend or just some shopping. Dinard has a fantastic market at the weekends as well which is also just by the hotel. Our room had a terrace, although it looked out over someone's back garden which was a little odd and didn't provide much privacy, however the partitions between our terrace and the rooms on either side provided total privacy from them. The terrace had a small table and two chairs but could have done with a bit of a clean as the floor was a bit muddy and dusty. The hotel does seem to have some lovely beach view balconies, however they cost a little more and we were on a budget. The room itself was very compact but perfectly kitted out. The bed was a standard double which was a little disappointing but we were only there for one night so wasn't too much of a big deal. There was a mini-bar which was stocked with lots of water and a few alcoholic beverages, all reasonably priced. There was a hairdryer and some bath products such as shampoo and shower gel. There was a TV (no English channels other than BBC News) and a desk in the room with a mirror above it, and the bathroom had a shower/bath, sink and toilet. There is a small wardrobe which would hold a few items of clothing and stored extra pillows and blankets if needed. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel but we have stayed here before and had breakfast which was fantastic - very good value for money. The breakfast room, however, is tiny for the size of the hotel and we have occasionally had to wait for a table.
We had to wait ages to check in because there was a queue and only one member of staff who had to show each person to their room and, due to the size of the hotel, that can often take some time!
The hotel does not offer parking (also unusual for the size of the hotel) however there is a free car park opposite but it has very limited spaces. The bed was quite uncomfortable and you could tell the mattress was quite old because we could feel the springs. Other than that, there are really no complaints. It's definitely a bit dated but they've gradually done work to it over the years and it's improving all the time - we always stay here and have had various different rooms.
