The Hotel is located on a busy junction and is easy to find although parking is limited. Good clean and comfortable spacious rooms although traffic noise will be a problem in hot weather when windows need to be left open overnight. Breakfast (optional) is good with local produce. Several good restaurants nearby, even on a Sunday, and it is a... More

A splendid hotel. Very calm and quiet. Excellent service and very pleasant. Clean and well-kept. Right next to the church and the bell were delightful. Hotel food very good, nothing too much trouble for the staff.

Hotel is good if you are going to catch the ferry from Caen, but Luc sur Mer is a nicer place. Hotel is ok, breakfast expensive for what is on offer. Should have been free wifi but didn't seem to have much luck with it. Dogs are obviously allowed as two shared the breakfast room with us! They were well... More

When we pulled up outside and realised that the hotel was not only on a main road but also at the traffic lights I was horrified, convinced that we would get no sleep at all. The quiet room which I had asked for turned out to be almost on top of the traffic lights! We went out for dinner, came... More

The hotel is functional in a rustic sort of way. Small and overpriced, but with a convenient location. The room was adequate and the breakfast plentiful, but stodgy. Nothing here for the health conscious - just carbs and coffee. You also have to be an animal lover because the little Jack Russell and large black cat roam the hotel with... More

We stopped here for one night before taking the early ferry next day. The hotel is in the centre of town, a few minutes from the beach and a five minute drive to Ouistreham car ferry terminal. Parking is on the street. Reception staff were helpful and pleasant. We paid on check-in to allow our early departure. The room was... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for exploring Lion sur Mer, Hermansville and the D-Day sites such as Sword beach, Pegasus Bridge and many others. The hotel itself is clean, tidy and the rooms are a good size. The breakfast is good and fresh pastries are always available - the English breakfast looked good as well. It's the service that makes... More

relatively easy to find if you ignore the first sign and go for centreville, hotel is right by traffic lights and an ideal place to spider out from each day. And as I had youngest grandson (8) good location for the Landing Beaches from Sword to Utah, Quistreham (Pegasus Bridge), Collevill sur mer, St Mere Eglise, Point du Hoc, Caen,... More

We chose this hotel as an alternative to stopping right at the ferry port, and because of its proximity to the beach. They are obviously geared up for dealing with customers like us as we were able to, effectively, check out as we booked in, which was handy for our morning ferry. Our comfort room was spotless and well presented,... More
