“Ideal for London to Paris group trips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We got the daytime ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe, and cycled the Avenue Verte to Gournay-en-Bray late afternoon to early evening. Le Cygne (The Swan) hotel is a good distance for an overnight stopover en-route to Paris. The garage for storing bikes is large and secure and the rooms are comfortable. They offer free Wi-fi as well. We took a large minbus and bike trailer (group of 11 people) and the carpark was a good size, straight behind the property, not underground as often found in the centre of French towns! The breakfast was very good with homemade jams. Brigitte was an excellent host and couldn't do enough to help us.

Room Tip: Central hotel in quiet rural town

We decided to stop in this hotel on the 2nd evening of our L2P cycle ride and booked 26 rooms. The owners were fantastic, very pleasant and unobtrusive. They have garages with locks for storing your bikes, and can easily accomodate around 20 bikes in each. The rooms are of decent size. Breakfast is basic continental with cereals and fruit. The hotel is situated in a safe area with plenty of nice restaurants nearby.

If you cycling down the AV from Dieppe, Gournay is a good distance, and Le Cygne is a good hotel for a stop. They have a garage for storing bikes and good comfortable rooms. We ate ou but struggled to find the only restaurant in town. Good breakfast.

The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful and couldn't have been more welcoming. However the hotel really is very basic although clean. Menu for dinner on Sunday night limited to crepes, which were good but not to everyone's taste! Gournay en Bray not a particularly exciting stop. We were en route to Paris by bike and next time will go 6 miles down the road to St German de Fly which looked a much prettier place.

Stopped in here for breakfast after 4 hours cycling from Dieppe. This place was superb and let us refuel and defrost before heading off to Paris. Your bikes are safe and the hotel was clean and service was exceptional. Highly recommend.

Cycling to Paris we turned up late and were offered everything we could possilby need. The next morning breakfast was served specially early so we could leave promptly on our cycle and the owner helped us with repairs we were making to our bikes offering tools and advice. Breakfast was good with a large selection of jams, breads, cereals, etc. Room was basic but very clean and there were extra pillows in the cupboard. All in all a great experience. I would highly recommend staying at Le Cygne.

Like many others here, we were cycling from Dieppe to Paris. The owners were very welcoming and locked our bikes away safely. Be aware not much English is spoken here, so you really need a rudimentary amount of French. Room looked a bit 70s, but was clean and comfortable and quiet. No kettle which disappointed my wife slightly. Owners really made us feel part of the family and meals were informal and sociable. Overall, I would have no hesitation recommending this to other passing cyclists.
