We booked this hotel via Groupon, which promisses us a reduction of 50% on the price. Once arrived we discovered that the price we paid was the normal price without reduction. We really did not pay much. Guess you can't expect much then either. The hotel accomodation is very old. Rooms are very small. We had a double bed and... More

We parked in front of the hotel and were greeted by a nice lady. After the usual administration she informed us that dinner was only served on the same day (we had an included menu) so we headed up to our room on the front of the hotel. the room had everything that is needed: shower / toilet / big...

Parking outside on street. Nice gentleman met us and sorted out rooms and asked if we would like dinner. Rooms were a mixed bag of very large and very small (no curtains) and small toilet units within. Low windows overlooking outdoor area not suitable for small children, No H & S here. Food good, served by busy waitress who avoided... More

We arrived from Portsmouth to Cherbourg on the ferry on the really rainy day and decided to stay in a hotel rather than camping. We arrived in Carentan and checked in last minute at L'Escapade. The room was good size (room 12) the bathroom was way too small. No shower curtain too. The bed linen was clean but with stains.... More

The food is good, but there is a problem with management here. It is a hotel and restaurant, and the same three girls seem to do everything, from checking guests in and out, serving in the bar, and serving at the tables, and also managing the place. The one had been on duty for at leat 16 hours, and in... More

Small but neat room. Well prices but basic maintenance required. In our room 2 lights not working, wall hooks broken, shower door handle broken, and toilets seat broken. Also window not sealed. Just lack of attention. But nice décoration.

As the sister hotel Auberge Normande was fully booked, me and my colleagues were booked fo our last day in Carentan in L'escapade. What an experience. The hotel can be either called charming or dated, whatever you like. The room I got was most likely smaller than your average prison cell (not that I ever stayed in a prison cell... More

Chose this hotel based on the location and proximity to Dday landing beaches and other historical stuff. The hotel itself is beautiful. The attached restaurant seems to be a local favourite and is full of local people during lunch and dinner service. The food and the service was excellent. The hotel room.... Looked great as we checked in... however the... More
