This was a decent hotel with a very good restaurant on site however I found the location to be a bit odd. It was good for us as we were driving to the beaches of Normandy during the day but it felt like the suburbs of town. Our phone didn't work but overall I thought the staff were very gracious...

I am 52 and my mum is 73. We spent 17 days at IV while the World Equestrian games were on in August/sept 2014. The hotel was superb. The staff were sooo helpful and friendly and the restaurant was divine! Our beds were very comfy and we had free parking for our little hire car. We easily drove to Bayeaux,... More

We stayed for one night at this hotel and were looking forward to a little bit of luxury. This isn't really what we got. The rooms are nicely furnished, if rather dark for our taste, but ours was in need of TLC. The bedside light and the toilet roll holder were both hanging off the wall. We had no internet... More

Although there are hotels closer to the D-Day beaches, we chose Ivan Vautier for its amenities--plenty of parking, Wi-Fi and air conditioning. The shower was great and bathrobes and hair-drier were provided. Cable TV was good. There was a very nice bar and an excellent breakfast, though it was about 16 Euros per person.

This hotel was a real pleasure after a really bad one! We had a junior suite with our adult son and it was clean and roomy, with 2 flat screen tv's. Very clean overall. The noise didn't bother us at all. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and sauna, big towels and robes included. One big drawback was that in our room... More

Another lovely hotel. Parking, plenty of it and free. Hotel has a very homely atmosphere and staff very helpful. Fell in love with their pet cat who is in charge of everything. Our room was okay but could have been bigger. We were here three nights and only in the room for sleeping so served the purpose. Windows can be... More

At the end of a hot, tiring car journey, this was a great place to stop and relax. The bedroom was beautifully designed and furnished, with high quality accessories throughout. Clearly, the hotel is noted for its haute cuisine ( and prices to match), which was not our priority that evening, so we ate elsewhere, and came back for a... More

After getting married in Bordeaux, we decided on spending a couple nights somewhere in France on the way back to England and after looking at Ivan Vautier, decided that Caen would be an ideal place. Ivan Vautier is an absolutely fantastic place to stay. For all the potential hotels I emailed to try and arrange some simple surprises to be... More
