This hotel is rated 2* - it barely warrants 1 star. Rooms are adequate - just. But basic and in poor repair. The bathroom is a 'plastic' pod - though it works fairly well. Apart from the shower - which was fine when it worked but the pressure and temperature fluctuated a lot, and the shower head constantly wandered. I'm... More

The hotel whilst being very basic with small rooms and an even smaller en suite was in fact an ideal location for our visit. There is nothing around the hotel by the way of restaurants or bars and the town centre is a good half an hours walk away, believe me I know having walked in and out 6 times... More

Staff very welcoming and helpful. Good location - within walking distance of central Caen. Buffet breakfast was excellent. Also had an excellent evening meal at a very reasonable price. Room was very clean and quiet. Bad Wi-Fi reception.

Staff very helpful and attentive, breakfast was plentiful and fresh, staff made sure we were looked after when a USA coach full of hungry teenagers cleared the buffet breakfast in minutes, good location and free parking, room basic but clean, good value for money.

The location is very convenient for exploring the Caen area, within walking distance of the WWII Museum and exploring the landing beaches. It's cheap in both senses of the word; Tired, small bedrooms, no sound-proofing, off-hand staff, awful food (breakfast's not too bad but there is always a queue and the staff seem to be irritated by having to replenish...

Clean rooms, good location for stops along Normandy coast and Caen Memorial. Rooms are small, but clean. No amenities like American hotels like shampoo and soaps. You also have to ask for hair dryers. Breakfast buffet was ok including baguettes, cereals, slices of ham and cheese. I was with a group so dinner was included here and was pretty good... More

We arrived here at 13.50 - ten minutes before the restaurant closed for lunch - the clerk asked us if we wanted lunch, and when we said "Yes", he made sure the restaurant stayed open to cook and serve us. During our stay here we ate breakfast four times in the hotel (an adequate selection at the breakfast buffet), once... More
