“Charming hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights in July, as we wanted to explore the area. This hotel is ideally situated, has plenty of parking and is in lovely grounds. Because we booked late, we had one of the smaller rooms, but it had a gloriously comfortable bed and a very nice ensuite. The breakfast room was charming, with cold meats, fruit and cheese as well as different types of breads and croissants. We really enjoyed our stay here and would visit again.

i found this hotel to be charming with dedicated owners well aware of their task ahead. the beautiful building has been around a long time and had not been kept up as it should have and their ongoing project is to exceed even its former grandeur. the lovely grounds are an inviting venue for an afternoon glass of wine. as is usual with european hotels, the rooms are small and the walls are thin. if you don't travel with ear plugs start now!! on my recent trip i stayed in 9 different hotels all of which had some level of noise with which to deal. the hotel is an easy walk down into town where there are numerous dinner options. i followed the owners advice and went to Les P'Tites Assiettes and i recommend you do as well. my room was quite comfortable with a very comfortable bed equipped with high quality linens. yes it needs new wallpaper and some tidying up but these owners have a grand plan for their project and it won't be long before the room price will correspond to their efforts. go now!!

Positiv:
- The hotel looks good from the outside
- In 5 minutes, you are in the center of the village and the beach

Negative:
- the room was full of mold - DISGUSTING!
- the bathroom had such a disgusting smell of mold, that we had to keep the door shut all the time, brushed our teeth outside and decided to take a shower in the next hotel
- same for the toilet (in a little extra room) this was so horrible, that sensitive people would throw up when going there
- when you open the window all night long, you can stand it, but at the time we went there, it was too cold at night

We would never, never go there again!!

Clean and pleasant old house now a hotel. Good breadfast (not included in room price) and rooms were clean.
Tiny drawback...the staircase is a circular one and if you have a room on the second floor..it is alittle hard getting up a large suitcase (no elevator). The lobby is cozy and the owners have games you can play...similar to an American B&B.
Within walking distance of Gold Beach and very nice cafes. Short driving distance to other Normandy landmarks.

Hotel was expensive, walls were thin and transmitted noise as well as actually move, breakfast was minimal- had obviously been calculated so that you didn't eat too much, owners hovered around during breakfast,rooms were not serviced nor re-stocked,no sea view.

Perfectly situated to see all of the Normandy beaches. This was a great quiet location tucked away with good accommodations. It had a cozy feel with great staff. Small room with nice linen on beds. Might feel small if you are accustomed to large American hotel rooms with roomy bathrooms. The only difficulty was where to put our luggage. The breakfast was excellent with a good variety. Coffee was superb!! We appreciated the welcoming warm feel to the hotel. Great value for the price. Easily access to Gold and Omaha Beaches. We appreciated the wifi available in our room at no extra charge.

Well, I guess I should know better but photos of rooms online do lie. The room we had was absolutely nothing like the photos. Mold in the shower, electrical wall plug hanging out of the wall. This place is in sore need of updating and renovation. Good location. Staff decent if a little obtuse. Walls are thin and noise level can be high.
