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.

When we drove into the hotel grounds, it was like going back in time. We could see where the horse drawn carriages would have gone, incredible. The rooms were like tiny terraced cottages. The food was the best we have ever had in France.

You are literally 'smacked in the face' with wholesome French small hotel character and quaintness, the moment you step in from the road. Enjoy the (small) inefficiencies and revel in the ambience of the hotel........... The rooms, in the courtyard, were fine, clean and quiet. The adjoining garden was beautiful to sit in and relax and enjoy the warm summer... More

Lovely little hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms, parking and excellent food and bar service, didn't need to book as it was off peak and they were so helpful, highly recommend. Nice bar area with fire places, just a shame the fires weren't lit as it wasn't cold enough or it would have been perfect!

Avranches is a reasonably large, historic town about half an hour from Mont St. Michel. We've stayed at the Hotel de la Croix d'Or three or four times when visiting Mont St. Michel, the first time 50 years ago during military service and it's still as comfortable and friendly a Normandy family hostelry as you'll ever find. Wonderful restaurant, friendly... More

This was a weekend break for us. The hotel has a fancy restaurant (see later comments) Hotel. Rooms clean and bathroom modern. Parking good. About E100/night. WiFi was good and overall a good experience. Restaurant - was very 'fancy' and a bit old-fashioned. Quite Formal service and heavy food - lots of cream and sauces. It was OK but I... More
