You should look at this establishment as a fine restaurant with rooms. The rooms are compact with little storeage(no drawers) and dark painted walls. Ours (no 17) was purple.The WC was so small you had to leave the door open to sit down. Theres no AC and we were hot. The wifi is very poor--weak or fair at best. Dinner... More

We were on a 4 night cycle tour of Normandy and Brittany and night 2 was in Croix D'Or. Having cycled 90k that day we weren't too impressed with our tour leader that the hotel he'd booked was on the top of a hill town... But once we had endured the steep ascent, had a bath and were sitting in... More

Found this beautiful hotel purely by chance when looking for an overnight stay between St Malo and Caen after a late boat arrival. The hotel itself is an old coaching in and the bar/reception is filled with beautiful antiques. Our room was in a courtyard block behind the main building and set in the most gorgeous gardens. It was only... More

The Croix d'Or met all our expectations. Great character building, lovely garden, good food, off street parking, quiet rooms, good location for wandering through the township of Avranches.. where from the park on the hill you can see Mont St Michel.

The hotel is an old coaching relay station, and behind an unprepossessing facade lies a lovely garden, though when we were there in October, it was of course past its peak for the season. The welcome was friendly but, like many places in France, there was not a lot of English spoken (not a problem for us, as one of... More

We came here several years ago for lunch, then returned to stay a few years later. The fact that we were back in July 2015 shows we really like the place. We booked 2 months earlier asking for a room with garden access, so were disappointed when we ended up upstairs under the roof admittedly over the garden on the... More

Refurbished room in separate block oddly laid out but quiet gave a good first impression. The gardens are stunning and have seating to sit and admire . The reception and restaurant area is old school stunning and the service at dinner was at a level that I have not seen for a long time, six stars! Dinner was overpriced for... More

After staying at a very modern hotel in Paris, we were disappointed when we arrived at this hotel. It definitely had some old charming features (beautiful gardens, reception area and facade). The staff in the lobby were friendly, but the person who showed us to our room made no offer to help us carry our bags up the stairs to... More

I only stayed here for one night before going on to a self catering place we had booked. It would have been great to have stayed here for the whole week. It was AMAZING. The food is 5*. I could not recommend this more highly. Stunning garden. The town of Avranches is lovelt too.
