This hotel has reasonable facilities for the price (but no tea/coffee) and excellent breakfasts. The room was very clean and the owners very helpful and friendly. However, we did not sleep well, partly due to the lack of a sprung mattress (and also the stormy weather!). The room, and particularly the shower room were a bit cramped. We would rather... More

What is important to us, wifi that is fast and reliable, a good hot shower, a place to plug in my hair dryer and a clean comfortable room. All of the above was here at this very cute hotel. The couple who run the hotel were the highlight of our stay along with the homemade yogurt we had every morning.... More

We arrived at Hotel Chimene at 3pm to find a sign on the door saying that reception was closed until 7pm. We phoned the number on the sign, and despite having a good mix of French & English signs, the person on the other end of the phone spoke no English, and made little effort to communicate with us in...

Chose the hotel due to the proximity of the Ferry and due to a basketball tournament we were attending as other parents had booked in. What you’d expect from a 2 star hotel, clean, tidy. However what made it an exceptional stay was the owner (sorry forgot name). I found her very friendly, very accommodating to our needs and made... More

Very welcoming. The owner was friendly and helpful offering advice on restaurants The room we were allocated was brown (not an ideal colour) but it was large enough and very comfortable and clean. The shower was good and the breakfast excellent. The French (good looking) lady spoke good English and you could see she was hard working, always on the... More

Whilst on the ferry over from Portsmouth, we received an email to say, sorry bu only one twin room was available - would we mind sharing? We replied OK, and when arris rove off the ferry... More

The hotel is not in the city center but it takes you only 5 minutes to get there by car. The location is good and you can park right in front of it. The owner is kind and helpful. She will give you all the information you need and do not doubt to ask about restaurants, she knows them. The... More

Arriving late afternoon by ferry, we wanted to avoid having to drive until the next day so we booked the Chimene. We had worried about parking, and when we arrived there was a special market closing the road it was on so we took back streets and discovered plenty of free and unrestricted parking on quiet streets - don't bother...
