Staff very welcoming.rooms quite adequate ,on busy road but quiet at night. Restaurant good value. Use hotel garage if possible if you are driving. Potential tour bus groups but no problem to us. Breakfast room has an "old school refrectory" feel about it but usual assortment of goodies to choose from though croissants appeared not to be fresh though the... More

Grand Hotel de L' Esperance is a good starting place to see the Chapel of Lisieux - the resting place of St. Therese as it is only one short block away from the hotel. The Basilica is also nearby and can be visited on foot. Next door from the hotel is a bakery where you can have different types of... More

I stayed there from Aug 22 to Sept 1/14 while on a tour for the world equestrian games in Caen, France. The hotel was so accommodating for us, opening the breakfast room at 6 am to allow us breakfast. After several long days we ate in the hotel restaurant several nights in a row. Steak tartare, Escargot , a fabulous... More

It is the entire staff of this establishment that separates it from the competitors. From Mssr. Alain Darmon (Directeur) throughout the staff these folks are committed to the comfort and the enjoyment of their guests' stay. The restaurant attached to the hotel and its staff are of equally high quality. Everyone pitches in to see to it that the diners... More

A warm and friendly welcome from the reception staff. The hotel is well situated in the middle of town. On a main road but quiet at night. Rooms have been modernized. Very pleasant. good bathrooms. I was very disappointed with the food. Dinner was quite pricey and not very good. Odd combinations - prawns and orange sauce?? Breakfast was a... More

Stayed here with a tour group while visiting Normandy beaches around the anniversary of D-Day. The hotel is located in the center of Lisieux, a relatively small town, which was clean and safe to walk around. There are a couple of decent restaurants on the main square with outside seating. The staff was really good about accomodating our large group,... More

This is a charming hotel with friendly, polite and helpful staff who all appear to have a good understanding of English. We were on the top floor (5) having a spacious corner room which had a wonderful elevated view of Lisieux. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a fresh modern décor. The location is very central with restaurants/bars... More

The hotel is a bit dated, but the staff made more than up for it. They were awesome, and the food is phenomenal! I would stay here again. The hotel is centrally located, and there are many shops surrounding it. I didn't get a chance to go out, but there was plenty to do within walking distance.

Just spent the weekend at this lovely hotel with a group I arranged. I had stayed there a few years ago and was happy to return though previously we had found it a little basic. However, after a refurb the facilities are some of the best I have found in a reasonably priced hotel anywhere in France. The rooms are... More
