We stayed here at 9.30pm after a terrible ferry trip from Portsmouth, room was lovely and upon reading that snacks were available 24/24 we asked at reception, but we were told nothing was available, also wifi is advertised but it wasn't working during the night bit was on in the morning. Breakfast was ok, mostly usual stuff, gorgeous scrambled eggs... More

I booked this room on line, being close to Christmas and had several hours travel to Orleans so stayed overnight. We had a pleasant stop, but opted out of breakfast at 26 euros but the room was very clean, overlooked the car park. We had an evening meal wich cost more than the room, but it really was good food.... More

We always go to this hotel when taking the ferry to the UK. HOWEVER beware of central booking. I booked for the night of 20th November, received confirmation from Best Western and fortunately then emailed the hotel to say we'd like our usual room. Only to receive an email back telling me that they couldn't understand how I'd managed to... More

Comfortable, clean, modern, stylish. Small shower room is well designed. Beds are very comfortable. Has its own free parking. 5 minutes from car ferry. Breakfast was an extortionate price so we didn't have it. Would certainly stay there again.

Our second visit to this hotel confirmed that it is excellently positioned for the Brittany Ferry. The hotel staff speak good English and are willing to try and help solve a crisis. The rooms are a good size but the Queen sized bed does take a lot of the available space. We would not want to stay for a long... More

We stayed one night at this hotel, after arriving late in France off the continental ferry. The hotel is literally one minute from the ferry port, making it an ideal place to stay before an early crossing or after a late one (particularly if you are not used to driving on the right hand side of the road - the...

Our three day trip to the D-Day Landing beaches was based at the hotel, and was booked in the UK with Thomas Cook, using Brittany Ferries. We had one double and one twin, with connecting door: the adults in the double, and the sixteen year old 'tour guide' and his good friend in the twin. All four persons commented on... More

Hotel La Mare O Poissons is a good place for visiting the Sword, Juno and Gold beaches, Le Grand Bunker, Pegasus Bridge & museum, the Merville battery. And so on. Location quiet, not in the centre of Ouistreham. Free parking excellent. Reception and breakfast-staff speaks fluent English and is very kind, in a way that makes you start your day... More

Not a bad value for 100Euros in this part of Normany. Very clean new hotel - only one year old and well maintained. the English fluent young woman at the froint desk was very helpful with directions. A bit out of town if you want the action, but fine for us quiet older folks.
