Update July 2012 We wanted to book this hotel for a 3-night stay at the end of July 2012 but discovered it no longer offers rooms and functions exclusively as a restaurant. The dining areas have been enlarged and updated and the first floor which once had the nicest bedrooms is now a very large restaurant able to accommodate large parties and groups.
We stayed here several times - even though there may have been bigger, better (and more expensive) places in Cancale than this small (11 rooms) hotel, above its own restaurant. We learned to ask for a twin room with a seaview on the first,which were quite a bit bigger than rooms on the top floor which had no view.
The larger rooms were very comfortable and it was a very well run establishment but the emphasis seemed to be on the restaurant side of the business.
The restaurant always served very good meals . Lots of sea food of course but also a good range of regional cooking.
The whole of the harbour front is lined with hotels and restaurants so one is really spoilt for choice.
We would definitely try one of the other Cancale hotels (in preference to St Malo where we landed up) and eat at Le Phare.
Cancale is an ideal place for a late arrival at, or early departure from St Malo and such a lively charming place in which to spend a few hours.
Parking is payable and can be a problem particularly in the summer high season.
In fact having seen how very crowded it is at the end of July and in a heat wave(!) I would recommend a June or September visit.
Location on quay, views, lively surroundings , proximity to St Malo ferry port.
