The difference is palpable when you check into a family run hotel. Here at La Croix d’Or, there is a sense of pride in their history involving three generations and a tradition of hospitality for travellers dating from the 17th century that they have carried on in the same spirit. For La Croix d’Or was an important coaching inn then... More

The rooms downstairs are not great, rather dark with small toilets. They did have a little character and were fine for a stop en route but I would not have wanted to stay more than one night here. The garden was cottagey, but a good size, well maintained and very pretty. Heads ducking slightly we walked through the narrow passageway... More

It seems to hear again the sound of the carriage and the horses who enter arcade. The interior is "hot", enveloping and quiet. The rooms overlook the flower garden. The restaurant is "sublime". Excellent staff. Breakfast well stocked.It deserves a stop.

Lovely hotel with a lot of charm and character. Interesting bedrooms overlooking garden. Modern bathroom with plenty of hot water once it arrived. Nice quality food served in a dining room with cloth napkins. Staff very friendly. Easy car parking. Would stay again.

An excellent find that warrants it's number 1 rating in Avranches. Staff helpful, gardens delightful, own car park, breakfast acceptable, and very calm compared with the frenetic atmosphere in major chain hotels we visited. Evening meals were superb. Room well decorated, quiet and spacious - shower only adequate though. There are some steep steps to some of the bedrooms. We... More

Had a most wonderful and memorable dinner last Sunday night 6/9/15 with my wife and daughter. We were staying in a nearby chateau and the owner recommended that we repair there for dinner after a morning exploring the D day beaches and an afternoon " climbing " Mont st Michel. We were not disappointed. There are set menus to suit... More

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.
