Before making comments on the level of service, I will comment on the accommodation. We rented an apartment that is located one block from the hotel. It was modern, clean, nicely furnished and a well equipped self catering suite. However, there is no internet and we had to walk to the hotel in the rain to use the WIFI in... More

We found this hotel by pure chance, thanks to the fact that it's so close to the road and it was quite late and we needed a place to sleep. We were given a room in the attic which was just fabulous if you are in for modern arrangements. The shower is just in the centre of the room, the... More

We stayed in apartment 3 which was spotlessly clean and very modern and comfortable. Bed was very comfy, great shower and fully equipped kitchen. Lovely location, we were there in early cot and we're lucky to get lovely weather so enjoy the peace and quiet and the great deserted beaches which are within walking distance. We had one of the...

Stayed here for the first night of our road trip to Mugello Moto GP. We arrived 21.00 and were shown to our room immediately. The room was in the attic and it was lovely; clean, spacious and great views. Last orders in the restaurant was 21.30 and I am so glad we didn't miss out, it was possibly the best... More

I arrived at Aux 13 Arches on Friday evening after my first ferry trip to France, to attend a wedding in a nearby chateau. The taxi dropped us off and I was given a key to my room above the restaurant. A lovely spacious room with a very very nice quality shower / basin area (I am fussy when it... More

Great location, wonderful food, friendly hosts, everything you could need in the room (except a bath mat!). Definitely will return on our next mini-break to France. Couldn't recommend highly enough and totally agree with previous reviewers positive comments. About 45 minutes drive from Cherbourg.

Having had property in the area for many years, it was odd to stay in a bed and breakfast, but what a gem! A busy and friendly bar and restaurant with a super room upstairs with a view over the water! Perfect!

Eat here again after many years away. If anything it is even better than I remembered !!!!!! This is small restaurant which now has accommodation. Great food and drink and well worth a detour off the main coastal road.
