Booked this last minute before an early ferry crossing and it was just what we were after; good value, central location (and 20 min drive to port) and easy parking (own car park plus side streets). The owner speaks beautiful English and couldn't be more helpful. Bathroom modern, room decor not quite so but clean, comfortable and relatively spacious. Good... More

Toilet didn't flush very well and breakfast wad charged at full rate for children under 10. Apart from that, the room was lovely as it had two single beds and a doodle begged rather than a single and a sofa bed.

Staff were extremely welcoming, friendly, and it was clear our comfort was their priority. Provided free use of their garage for our motorcycles was a great help. Rooms clean and comfortable with air conditioning. Part of our visit coincided with a coach load of Spanish tourists which made breakfast the following morning a bit crowded. A good selection of breakfast... More

This convenience to the station may be an important factor if traveling on the Brittany Ferries. Exit the Station on the Pierre Mendes side through the station underpass. Don't use the front exit of the station by the buses. As you see the new shopping mall turn left. The Hotel is not in the tourist center of town, but the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights. Nice hotel with clean, comfortable room with shower, A/C and free WiFi. Welcoming staff. About 15-20 minutes walk from the town centre. Very close to the rail station and across the road from a modern shopping centre. Breakfast is extra (and quite expensive), so we preferred to pop out for a coffee and... More

Our visit to Normandy consisted of 3 couples and my daughter. Our room held three comfortably. It was bright and sunny. Bathroom adequate. Elevator so that you didn't have to carry luggage up the stairs. Great location, within walking distance to the train station. Extremely convenient location. Breakfast was not included and was very expensive. However, no restaurants near were... More

The room and bathroom were small but that is typical in Europe, also, TV was small and distant from the bed. Otherwise, it was clean comfortable. The staff was nice and helpful. The location is good, very close to the train station, 5 minute walk and about 10 to 15 minute walk to the historic section of town. Tram runs... More

I stayed here for a couple nights in sept 2014 and my room was on the second floor. It smelled like the food from the kitchen. The hotel is older and had a musty older smell mixed as well. All the furniture and decor is extremely dark. The walls had stains on them and dirt near the air conditioner. This... More
