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

Convenient for the Ouistreham ferry port. Efficient if rather formal check in. The room was clean and comfortable with a huge en suite bathroom (suitable for disabled guests). Close to several restaurants and short walk to the beach. Slight disadvantage in not having an off street car park, but there was limited street parking in front of the hotel and... More

Very convenient for the ferry, advertised english spoken and lounge. No english spoken and lounge was the family room not at all welcoming. Stayed two nights adequate room and shower, breakfast was spoilt by cat on one table and lady feeding two dogs off another one. Second night we were locked out although it was only nine o'clock and had... More

Overnight stop before early morning ferry. Only ten minutes from the port and a nice change from the sterile rooms of many of the large chain of budget hotels. On the main road through Lion sur Mer next to the traffic lights. Good selection of restaurants nearby and short walk to the beach. Lovely room and furnishings. Small but adequate... More

Very clean, excellent comfortable bed, nice ensuite bathroom with good shower. The hotel needs a lift because the stairs are difficult with luggage or without! The traffic noise disturbed sleep for a couple of nights. We had to have the windows open because of the heat and the traffic was noisy at night.

We were quite late off the Ouistreham ferry and although we'd warned the hotel of this we rang as well as they close early. Easy to find, on the (quiet) main road through the town. Madame welcomed us pleasantly at the door and was patient when we had to go down to the car again and locked ourselves out! We... More

I stayed for 5 nights in this hotel. I travelled alone, discovering the region of Normandie with my motorcycle. Breakfast was super! Very quiet. Slept extremely well here. Good bed; I had a room for 1 person. (Not the street-side) The room is small. Bathroom was perfect. The staff was friendly. Supermarket and some good cheap restaurants nearby, within 150... More

This hotel is conveniently located close to the beach & shopping. The room is small and the walls are very thin which means you hear all the noise of the tv, people walking etc. The door to the room has a 2 inches gap to the floor which does not help with the noise situation. However, the bed is comfortable... More

We stopped overnight after arriving on the evening ferry from Portsmouth .We had booked direct with the hotel after seeing some reviews on a booking site which suggested it was nice. we had been quoted a price to include a "nice breakfast" with fruit and yoghurt. When we arrived, we checked in to our rather dated but clean room and... More
