We stayed here as a base to visit sites in Normandy. Our room was large and clean; We had difficulty regulating the heat and air conditioning. The bathroom was modern and attractive. Biggest complaint we had was the hairdryer was a relic-I rely on a decent blow dryer-and my hair looked terrible and not dry for the entire stay. Also,... More

This hotel has average rooms with the most lumpy mattresses I have encountered. We did not eat at the restaurant because it was overpriced. No one else did either except for one couple we saw in the restaurant on ONE occasion. The hotel is stingy on towels. You have to practically beg if you want extra towels to wash your... More

Deviated 50 ks on a business trip to stay at this hotel known from previous visits. Hotel is in the centre of town, 20 minutes from the car ferry much of the hotel is in a former convent but very stylishly and sympathetically restored. But the restaurant staff, chef and food are sublime. You can dine very well on their... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and got deal for (stay, Breakfast and Dinner). The front desk speak very good English and are very pleasing.

Parking is very limited and people use the... More

we stayed here for 4 days in December. The hotel was in a great location - but parking was very limited, we managed to park outside the hotel as it was not full - but in season I can imagine it being very difficult to impossible. Parking in the roads outside seemed also impossible even in December as it was... More

I liked this hotel. Service was good and rooms are actually very nice and newly redecorated in a quite stylish way. Rooms are small though (and the loo was the tiniest I've ever seen). I loved the breakfast. Staff was also nice. There was one thing that irritated me though: the wifi. It didn't work that well and to enter... More

I only stayed one night, the hotel is well situated with everything close at hand, the hotel room was clean with all that you expect and the bed was comfortably, the staff are polite and will do anything to help, That's the good points. I ate in the restaurant and the food and wine was good but extremely overpriced. Yes... More

Reasonable Priced small typical hotel. If your travelling to the area you cannot beat this hotel. Clean, Quiet, Affordable. Great food within walking distance. Well laid out, and superbly clean. Trip Advisor makes you use 200 characters to review but I just can't talk that much :)

Not value for money. Charged £6 for a beer in the bar. Not a very good selection for breakfast hence we ate out. Parking was not good and not sufficient for the amount of rooms. First come first serve. Was in a good location for the attractions. Limited places to eat on a sunday as their restaurant is closed. The... More
