My husband stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks after our plan of going to Brittany fell through. Mr and Mme Raffe were wonderful and very welcoming and kind to us. Special mention to William (Guillaume), their senior staff person, who was kind and very helpful. Made our time in Ouistreham most enjoyable and we would not hesitate to go... More

I stayed at the Hotel Du Phare this summer, with my husband and 2 children, the night before catching the early ferry back to Portsmouth. We were greeted by extremely friendly staff on our arrival. We had a family room with 2 double beds, whic was clean and spacious. The shower was excellent, which is always important, and the beds... More

I have stayed in this hotel many times over the past 10 years, the owners and staff are fantastic. The owners Martine and Gerard and family have a very warm welcome for everyone, any D-Day veterans are treated with upmost respect and are like family.

Although we did not stay here we enjoyed what was our best meal this trip with an excellent menu of oysters and sole. Super service and value. Made more worthwhile as rough crossing home prevented planned dinner on the ferry. Next trip we will night stop here and again enjoy an excellent meal!

We booked this hotel through the website we booked our ferry crossing on. Hotel Le Phare is very close to the ferry terminal so, after our trip from Portsmouth, we only had a few hundred metres to drive. There was plenty of free parking immediately outside the hotel. We arrived quite late and there were no staff on duty at... More

Typical small cheap hotel above a bar. Beware if arriving at night the bar may be closed and you will need code for entry and pick up key from board. Get these before you arrive. Parking right outside.

As a place to stay before or after the ferry, this is OK. The room was small but well decorated, fresh and clean, and the linen was spotless and fresh. My only criticism would be lack of a mirror. Ah, but the shower room! Tiny and old fashioned with no hooks, and questionable mould in the shower. And the shower... More

Booked the hotel for the night before the ferry home. Had a double room for myself and my 5 year old child. Room a little on the small side but very clean and overlooked main square, which kept my child entertained watching ferries,traffic and the fair! Staff welcomed my child. Only negative would be they do not allow you to... More

We were traveling from Ouistreham (Caen) to Portsmouth on Brittany Ferries, and decided to drive during the day and stay overnight in Ouistreham, taking the 8.30 am boat to Portsmouth, instead of trying to sleep on a bunk bed! The Phare is only 5 minutes from the ferry port, so perfectly situated for a quick morning getaway. There is parking... More
