I stayed in this hotel for 1 night only, it was excellent , everyone is very friendly, they have good food, the rooms are big and clean. The hotel is located in a very good area, not far from the cathedral of ste Terese and there is a good mumber of shops around.

We stayed for a week while with a group from my car club and used the hotel as a base for touring Normandy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and comfortable and the restaurant is good. Drink prices are high in comparison with local bars and restaurants. €9 for a large beer as opposed to... More

We stayed overnight on a drive through France. The staff are very welcoming and efficient. Dinner in the restaurant was superb and once again the service was outstanding. Although a little old-fashioned, the hotel is comfortable and spotlessly clean. The two minor negatives are that the bed is rather short for a 6ft individual and the only cooked breakfast items...

Beds were comfortable and rooms quiet, even though they were right on the main street. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. A member of our group fell and broke his arm and the owner/manager's wife came and drove him to the hospital and made several trips back and forth to tend to him until he was released. Food was very good.

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

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
