This is a little gem of a hotel close to the Pegasus bridge and a million miles from the accommodation in the Ouistreham chain hotels. The food is fabulous, and the clientele almost exclusively French. No English cars there on 13th July. Oysters and lobsters feature on the menus, as do a range of fishy dishes. The 'protein plate' of... More

I am sure I must rank as one of the Glycine’s most long-standing and committed guests, having stayed there 6 or 7 times since 1995 to visit the many battle sites and museums in the area. Despite this undoubted illustrious position, whenever I make an enquiry, or even when I check-in, I am met with the same cool indifference I... More

We arrived by ferry late at night and this was just a few minutes drive. Clean bright quiet room, safe off-street parking. Nothing to see or do in the village, and we didn't try the restaurant, but the hotel is perfect for a pit stop. Maybe for longer, but we didn't try.

We were visiting pegasus Bridge, & I had looked up this restaurant before our trip, but didnt book. For some reason i had expected a much more basic restaurant, but was very pleasantly surprised. It was very busy with locals, but we got a table for 2. We shared a dozen oysters to start, and i followed this with a... More

This was our second visit and it turned out to be just as enjoyable after we changed rooms. At first we were shown into a smallish room which would have been alright if it hadn't been for the smell of fresh paint. Rooms were being updated and the workman and his machines were next door. We were then moved into... More

Quiet and nice hotel at a good location for visiting historical places (Pegasus Bridge, etc.). Rooms are a bit better than basic but efficient and value for money. Excellent restaurant and a good breakfast buffet.Friendly staff.

This is a very nice place to stay close to Ouistreham Ferry. The rooms are modern and slightly over the top decoration-wise for my taste, but the beds and the shower are terrific. The patron and his staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. We ate in the restaurant and although it was quite pricey, the food was overall very... More

Extremely convenient for Ouistreham. Friendly welcome, the hotel is not a bar but reception staff said they could accommodate us with drinks if required until the restaurant closed. Breakfast a little expensive for what we are used to and a bit awkwardly set out (self service)that is to say the service area is a bit cramped. The staff were continually... More
