We arrived late without booking so had to take a side room with rooftop view. The room was clean, tidy and bathroom great. The beds, however, were fantastic! Probably the most comfortable in any hotel I have stayed in. Being right alongside the fishing port means some early noise if the tide is right (or wrong depending on your viewpoint).... More

We stayed here for one night during our roadtrip cross Normandy. Hotel is a small quite place with nice location. We had a big room with a nice view over the port. The see smell was charming, but we like it so we didn´t mind. Staff was very nice and helpfull. On the other hand there was a strage smell... More

At the end of the road in an older building with newly renovated rooms, the breezes of la Manche and a view of the port, its restaurant is excellent. The waiter/manager was particularly charming and helpful. Mornings, however, start early at the harbor.

Stayed during a very busy time so had no choice of room Side rooms look out over rooftops Corridors smell a bit fishy but understandable The town is very pretty and bustling with boats and fisherman at the quayside landing and selling fresh fish. Worth a stay and it is a short drive to Arromanches to see the sights there... More

I stayed there four years ago and loved the place. Tried again the next year. No response to faxes or e-mails. Showed up hoping for a room, but the proprietress dismissed me with a series of non, non, non. Literally shooing me out of the place. Returned this year with some friends--we were staying elsewhere--hoping to dine there at least... More

My wife and I booked in to this hotel on 18th June, as it looked like a good old style hotel, right on the sea front,so we booked an overnight stay, early evening, on a short break. The passageway to our room on the 2nd floor was not at all welcoming- dark, poorly lit,and smelt as old as the hotel.... More

We stayed here for two nights in June 2012 when the weather was poor. We were touring the Normandy beaches and museums and used this hotel as a base. We checked in before dinner and found our room on the third floor, no lift, and it was dull, cold and uninviting. We asked for some heat to be put on... More

My husband used to stay here in the 1960s as a teenager and we have stayed here several times since the 1980s. The hotel is family owned and operated and they go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. The restaurant is so outstanding I have no words to describe it. If you like seafood, you'll love this... More

My brother & I stayed here for several nights many years ago while visiting the Omaha beaches and American cemetery. It was comfortable in early June, quiet, and a wonderful view. The food was good Normandy fare with respectabe service all around. I have fond memories of Port en Bessin as a welcome and relaxing respite from my daily routine... More
