Wonderful Hotel on the sea

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

laurence D 03/01/2022 TripAdvisor review

We enjoyed our stay, in December as in July the view is still wonderful and the service inside the hotel is great, rooms on the -3 offered a direct access to the garden, we have a dog so it was very convenient for the dog but for us too.

Dear customer, Thank you very much for your comment. I am delighted to read that your stay with us went well. We look forward to welcoming you back to EMERIA Dinard, Best regards, Bruno VILT

Great location; supportive staff; holiday clientele

GalwayGeographer Couples - 28/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

If you enjoy waling along a wonderful beach or through a rich, villa-filled landscape, this hotel should be your first call along the channel costs of France. St-Enogat is a beautiful part of Dinard, worthy of a visit on its own. The hotel is an old Novotel that's been capably updated -- and the location cannot be beat. Be aware that it's a spa-orientated hotel so you're likely to see lots of guests walking around in slippers and bathrobes. Would I return -- you bet!

Dear customer, Thank you very much for your encouraging comment. It was a pleasure to welcome you to the hotel. I am pleased to announce you that our hotel will be completely renovated from October, 2022. We look forward to welcoming you back. Best regards, Bruno Vilt

Anne Marie H Family - 03/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

Everything about this hotel ticked the boxes- seaside, swimming pool. Room was good- not quite 4 star. Our biggest problem was the dinner. Restaurant standard wasn’t good and not suitable for kids so had to eat out every night. Much better food in local restaurants.

thank you for your comments regards

Not so good like 9 years ago

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

Bartosz F Family - 16/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

I am a little disappointed. The location is perfect. And that's all that's worth praising. Hotel rooms should be renovated. Breakfast very poor and expensive. Staff at the bar without English. A room much worse than 10 years ago.

thank you for your comments our breakfast is providing local product, oysters,3 sorts of eggs, baked beens, bacon, ham, salads, 8 sorts of yogourt, 3 sorts of cheese... regards

Fab Stay Felt Amazing

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

badgerbrush Solo travel - 22/05/2019 TripAdvisor review

This was my first stay in Dinard, my fifth with Thalassa. Booked into the Detox for this stay and I was really impressed. Treatments, although fairly short (15-25 mins depending) were very effective. The detox food was excellent - both plentiful, delicious and beautifully presented. Despite being unable to exercise due to an injury I lost a good kilo and a half of fat, and gained in muscle. The Fucus mud must really do its stuff. I had a room in the Villa wing and was very happy - large and comfortable with a kitchenette and kettle. A big mention for the restaurant staff who worked exceedingly hard, and to the lady on the restaurant front desk and nothing short of a photographic memory. I returned home feeling rested, and frankly, fantastic. Grumbles are small. Room check in is at 4pm, so be prepared for a long wait if you land at 9am at Dinard. The taxi from the airport is 30 Euros despite being a 10 min ride.

thank you so much for your kind comments We are happy to you had a good result with our treatments best regards

Good stay again.

The hotel was quiet and the carpark had spaces! We spent an afternoon in the pool and jet pool. It is nice they give you pool towels and a swimming cap. The breakfast was busy but they kept replenishing things so was good.

thank you for your kind comments regards

Linda H Couples - 07/06/2018 TripAdvisor review

The hotel was lovely, the pool was just what we needed for a relaxing stay. The sun terrace was nice to sit and read and enjoy the sunshine. After swimming we sat at the bar terrace and enjoyed our welcoming drink of grapefruit and tonic water which was refreshing in the warm weather,

thank you for your kind comments regards

The best Novotel I have stayed in

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Philip R Family - 07/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

We regularly stay in Novotels and this was the best one we have stayed in. The location on the coast was excellent and we found Dinard to be a pleasant little town. The Hotel was very relaxing and I enjoyed having my breakfast out on the terrace in the sunshine overlooking St Malo bay. The room we had was also very nice and equipped with it's own little kitchen.

Thank your for your kind comments best regards

Strange service if any

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

P5431ZNirinas Couples - 04/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

I have the Gold status with AccorHotels and so spend at least 30 nights in hotels of this chain round the world per year. First shock was - no airconditioning in the Residence of Novotel Dinard The room is dark due to a narrow window. Unnecessary huge bed-armchair took 30% on the floorspace - why to put them in every room? We had 2 tall metal and plastic barchairs in the room - one we used as a bedside table which we lack in the room. Strange furniture....Kitchenette is a fridge, microwave and a sink The main shock is NO ENGLISH MENUE in the restaurant at this international brand hotel! Waiters do not speak English...Of course it gives you the chance to go out to eat but de-values the hotel. And to go out...the hotel is 3 km from Dinard centre. On the first day I asked for the second chair for the balcony as for two of us only one chair was provided. I was clearly said "NO" and for 5 night we spent there at Dinard the hotel did not find the opportunity to give us the second plastic chair....3 teabags were provided for 2 of us - 1 green, one bio and one black: no chance for a couple both to have black tea....At the arrival I found just 1 body lotion in the bathroom - and for 5 nights we were provided 2 shampoos in addition to that body lotion... At breakfast at the entrance to the restaurant they gave us pieces of paper where it was written what coffee we were for and this piece of paper is to be placed at your table - 2 times of 5 breakfasts coffee was brought after half an hour of chasing. Once it was just cold. At 8:40 - 8:50 a roommaid knocks the door asking when she could make the room. Every time we said In an hour. And twice returning back to the room at 2PM we found the room was not made. At the departure I was asked how I liked my stay with Novotel Dinard. I said "Kind of" and the manager lifted the eyebrows and made the jesture by his hand - probably meaning to continue, to explain... I am at least 15 years him older and as the manager of the international brand hotel he is to know some jestures are not quite accepted in different cultures and it is better to avoid jestures in business environments. I explained why I feel Novotel Dinard did not provide good service. Did I get any apologies? No. I have got "Here is your reciept. Good bye".

Thank your for your comments they will be share with our staff to improve our service best regards

ianjboyce Family - 01/09/2017 TripAdvisor review

I have stayed at this hotel many times, usually in the main building fronting the sea views. This time however, with my daughter, her husband and their 4 children, 9,7, 5 and 1 years we stayed in the annex self catering apartments: Had a lovely stay as always and the only niggle is the lack of English translations for the menus in the restaurant, which I mention each time I visit. The other issue was the lack of room service in the self catering apartments particularly with 4 young children (only available in the main hotel accommodation) despite the documentation in the apartment indicating otherwise. However, these are minor gripes, This is a fabulous hotel and these little niggles will not prevent me from visiting again, with or without family.

Thank your for your comments, the next menu will be translate, we have a QRcode actually nos enought efficient see you soon best regards

ianjboyce Family - 08/08/2015 TripAdvisor review

Lovely Hotel with outstanding views (Provided you have a room in the hotel rather than the self catering rooms) We were a family of 4 adults and 3 children aged 3,4,and 7: and had 3 rooms. The Childrens room just off the restaurant and bar was perfectly situated so that the adults could relax and enjoy our meal/drink while at the same time being able to keep an eye on the little treasures! Only one minor criticism was the lack of English translation on menus, however, food excellent: Perhaps more expensive than your standard Novotel but you have to pay for quality.

thank you so much for your kind comments best regards

Nomad45820 Couples - 19/06/2015 TripAdvisor review

We were upgraded to a seaview room on arrival. Pleasant ground floor room decorated in a beach style and opened up onto the lawn. Tasted our first Thalassa session, which was so relaxing. Staff attentive. Breakfast on the terrace was excellent, local specialities like oysters and Bretagne tart.

Thank you for your comment about our hotel Novotel Thalassa dinard hope to see you again best regards
