We stayed here in January and had a lovely time - it would usually be a little outside our budget but circumstances allowed us to go there :) The breakfast wasn't included in the price of the room, which for over 120 euros per night I might have expected, and the wifi cut off every 2 hours, which was somewhat...

Stayed here on weekend break. More up market than my normal choices but worth every cent! Arrived early but room was available already. If you want to make tea or coffee in your room ask for a plateau de courtoisie freely given by courteous and friendly staff Our deal included breakfast which was lovely. Fresh apple juice from local farm,... More

Perfect hotel with really tidy rooms, well equipped, ultra clean and comfortable. We were made very welcome and our room was at the back so very quiet and a tranquil outlook over neighbouring houses. This is city centre so don't expect acres of gardens! Was only there one night so we opted to eat in the hotel which was the... More

Stayed at this hotel whilst in Caen for a conference. Staff very friendly and helpful even when we wanted omelettes at 10 pm! Comfortable room. Situated in a central location. Nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed here in September when we came to see the Normandy Beaches, was a great hotel in the heart of Caen and only a 20 minute walk to the Memorial. The hotel is also just around the corner from the castle (although this was closed when we were there). The rooms were clean and tidy, the bed was very... More

A fabulous hotel right in the heart of Caen. Only a 20 minute walk from the Memorial and right across the road from the Castle. Rooms were tidy and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and very traditional. The restaurant at night is top notch, excellent food and service. Couldn't fault it. Looked after our bags all day too on check out... More

Stayed here 1 night with my wife, and we were satisfied. The hotel is at a very good location. Friendly and very helpful staff. My wife rented the well equipped spa and loved it. Very bad wifi. Somewhat expensive breakfast, but with the option for a smaller cheaper one. Some parking spots for the guests, which is good.

The hotel is conveniently located but not many more pluses from my point of view. Very tight car park, not big enough to accommodate all residents. No tea/coffee in room. No air conditioning. Noise from party goers one night until 3.00a.m. Breakfast an expensive extra.

The Dauphin is an excellent hotel. I have stayed there for 15 years and the standard of welcome, cuisine and rooms is first class. Mr and Mrs Pugnat should be commended on this exceptionally well run and charming hotel, well situated in the centre of Caen.
