Like most visitors we chose Chateau d'Audrieu as we were visiting the WWII landing beaches. While the reception staff were excellent, the property was not up the levels we have come to expect from Relais and Chateaux. We were in the lower level of a small house near the garden. The room had a damp odor. I kept windows wide open whenever we were in the room. The toilet had no ventilation. The large bathroom had a jacuzzi bath but no shower just a shower attachment on the taps. There is ample room for a walk-in shower. The layout of the room was old fashioned and awkward. My husband had great difficulty walking around the bed from his side as it was too large for the room.
The restaurant meal was excellent and service was faultless. The same could not be said of breakfast. The staff were inefficient. Items were not replaced. It took far too long to get tea and other things that were missing from the buffet given how few guests there were.
Sadly, we would not recommend this hotel to others, nor would we stay in it again.
