We arrived here at the end of a camping holiday with not much of an expectation as this was just a sleep over pending the ferry the following day. We however loved the hotel. We had two rooms and both were just as comfortable. Everything you could want and sheets and towels were spotlessly clean and white! The hotel is... More

We found this hotel at the last minute during D-Day commemorations. The new owners are so very nice and helpful. Our room was average, but spotless! After speaking with the owner, we found out that she had recently purchased the hotel and is renovating it from the ground up. Our room had not been renovated yet. That's why I gave... More
