Modern and stylish in both public rooms and bedrooms. Rooms are spacious and have good bathrooms. Dinner in the restaurant was memorable with very good service and food. We particularly liked the crab and other fish starter, duck pate and veal in wild mushroom sauce. The cheeses were good and puddings of apple tart and crème brulee. The wine list... More

Good location, relatively quiet, though the street lights outside were a bit bright (luckily turned off at about 11), with demi-pension, one of our favorite ways of staying in French hotels. It does the job, but just a little lacking in the undefinable extra touches that make eating and staying more welcoming. We've stayed in other hotels at the same... More

We use the La Glycine as an overnight "stop off" when going to and from the Ferry Port. So we are "one nighters" for our needs this Hotel is great. We find the staff helpful and efficient and we have never had a problem booking in (we do book in advance). The rooms at the Hotel annex are Motel style,... More

We spent just one night here before an early morning ferry, but we will be back! Ideal for visiting the Normandy beaches, and Pegasus bridge only a few hundred yards away. The room we used was spacious, tastefully decorated and well equipped. Very comfortable and calm. Unusually for a hotel in this class in France there ARE welcome tea and... More

We had such a nice experience at the hotel as well as the restaurant. The staff was very tolerant of our inability to speak French. The food was exquisite and the hotel was clean and comfortable. The town itself was so quaint and welcoming. We would recommend this venue to anyone interested in seeing the gorgeous Normandy area.

We chose this restaurant at random en route to the night ferry to Portsmouth from Caen. The food and service were outstanding, and it is highly recommended as excellent value for money at a very convenient site.

we booked a room and restaurant about a month before travelling for our wedding anniversary and were confirmed by the receptionist (my wife speaks fluent french). On arrival they had no note of our booking and so we were turned away to find alternative accommodation which we did in ouistreham. Very upset with their lack of efficiency.

First the best bits. Nicely located in an attractive village near the ferry port of Ouistreham-10 minutes away for early morning ferry, perfect! The family room we stayed in was small but OK and the beds were clean. However we had a damp smell coming from the bathroom, standing water in the wait-room (disable facilities) from a floor not being... More

Stayed here as arrived quiet late off the Brittany ferry at Caen and wanted to visit Pegasus Bridge in the morning. Our room was in the annex just across the road from the hotel which was convenient as it also had the car park situated there. Travelling with our dog meant we did not have to enter the main hotel.... More

Nice, family run hotel, a short walk from the famous Pegaus bridge & museum. Has handy parking in hotel and outside in a quiet, pleasant Caen suburb. Room was fine. Bit odd that the toilet had no sink and was separate from the bathroom, and the pillows weren't great. On the other hand, the restaurant is supurb.
